Go for a hike, bike ride, or horseback ride on the C&O Canal tow path located directly across the river. Relax in the natural water 'spa' amongst the rocks. Shop in quaint nearby Shepherdstown where you'll find coffee shops and excellent dining. Watch thoroughbred horse racing or play the slots at Charlestown Races and Casino. Visit museums, explore history, or enjoy local festivals and farmers markets. Play volleyball or soccer on the large grassy field. Be whitewater rafting or enjoy the zipline nearby. Sip wine at numerous local vineyards. See for yourself and experience the fun of Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. This Place is Awesome! Centrally located near Historic Winchester, Frederick, Hagerstown, Berkley Springs, and Martinsburg. Each about a 25 minute drive.More
