Come as you are & take a seat at nature’s table under the canopy of stars. Embrace the wooded ambiance and meadow views from our 825 sq. ft suite as you melt your cares away in front of the fireplace. We are conveniently located between I-68 and Deep Creek Lake/Wisp Ski Resort. Our hope is to provide a serene landscape where you can experience peace and rest through nature. Our setup works well for business travelers, couples, couples with children and for those celebrating a special occasion.
The Butterfly Suite is a brand new 2nd floor 825 SQ FT 1 Bedroom/1 Bath suite, with a private entrance with 17 steps. While it is attached to our home, it is soundproofed to where normal conversations cannot be heard. It has central heat and air conditioning, with an exterior entrance & parking for 2-3 cars. The suite parking and entrance is on a different side of the house from the main entrance. We are hidden at the end of a 700’ lane through a forest carpeted with ferns.
The suite overlooks a 60-acre former strawberry farm where deer and wild turkeys are frequent guests. Feel free to gander at our resident chickens and take a leisurely walk /hike through the woods and the farm! Take a seat and enjoy the stars in their nightly splendor while sitting around the fire pit. In the summer air you can hear the music of cicadas and crickets strumming their wings and spring peepers in the moonlight. This is one of my favorites!
Although this is newly constructed there is plenty of age & history. Most of the stone used on the premises are from the farm. Some of the hand cut stones used in the landscaping were from the foundation of a (1800’s) school that Ken’s grandfather attended. The fireplace mantel and window trim were constructed by Ken from 140-year-old barn-boards.
The bedroom has a king size bed. The bathroom with a tub/shower is attached to the bedroom. There is a single bed sized day bed with a trundle in the Living Room. There is also a couch in the Living Room that can be used to sleep on. We have a rollaway bed stored in the laundry room that you may use if needed. A Pack-n-Play and a crib mattress are also available for small children.
The suite has a full kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, microwave, drip coffee maker, and a Keurig coffee maker. The kitchen is also equipped with a toaster, crockpot, cooking and eating utensils, sugar, salt, basic spices, assorted teas, a few K-Cups, etc.
The Kitchen/Living Room has a 10 vaulted ceiling with a gas fireplace. Warm yourself by the fire and relax after a day of skiing at the Wisp.
This is a perfect location for a romantic getaway, honeymoon, a peaceful retreat in the country, or for a family ski weekend! It also works great for a business traveler looking for a home away from home. The 8’x8’ balcony is a great location to have your morning coffee and watch the sun rise and the deer graze in the meadow!
There is a TV in the Living Room and the service is Dish. A DVD player and some assorted DVD movies are available for you to use.
Free Wireless Internet is available. At the current time our internet is satellite and can be slow at times. We have been told that Comcast will be available here later in the year and at that time we intend to upgrade our internet.
To make the stay of our guests with allergies more pleasant, this is a NO SMOKING and NO PET property.

This is a 2nd story suite with 17 steps. If you cannot do steps, this property may not work well for you. This is also a smoke free and illegal drug free property. Because of allergies, we also have a no pet policy.
