Chestnut Farmhouse gets its name from the stately American Chestnut tree that at one time in our country’s history provided lumber for housing and businesses and livelihoods for people from the Appalachian mountains to New England. From the Chestnut Orchard, we are getting chestnuts that we roast over the open fire. The house, with its big country kitchen, two downstairs meeting rooms and beautiful porch is available for day use during the week and weekends. A lovely walk down a quiet gravel road leads to Lewis Creek which flows into Catoctin Creek which flows into the Potomac River at Point of Rocks. Hike up the hill for breathtaking panoramic views of the South Mountain Range and the Catoctin Range. Great blue herons, bald eagles, and red tailed hawks can occasionally be seen flying overhead.
