The Farmhouse on Tomahawk Run is situated in a secluded valley between Martinsburg and Berkeley Springs. Close to the northern end of the Shenandoah Valley, the area is rich is scenic beauty as well as Civil War history. Harpers Ferry and Antietam are only a short drive away. Golf, hunting, fishing and hiking are attractions for those who love outdoor sports.
The home was built by the owner's great-grandparents during the Civil War on land that had been granted to her ancestors in 1750. The original flavor of the country farmhouse has been retained with the addition of modern comfort and convenience. Three large guest rooms offer private baths, balconies or porches and comfortable sitting areas. American antiques blended with English and Japanese furniture collected by the owners when they lived abroad add a surprising touch to the old rooms. The wrap-around porch provides a pleasant spot to have breakfast on warm mornings, to read a book or to relax in the Jacuzzi after dark. A two-bedroom cottage across the garden has a complete kitchen/living area for those who would prefer more private, self-catering accommodation. Flower gardens, a rippling stream, meadows and hills surround the home and are available for guests to enjoy.
Two of the farmhouse rooms have king-size beds, comfortable chairs and private balconies and baths. The downstairs suite has a queen-size bed, shower bath and a private sitting room. The Carriage House, which is perfect for a family or two couples traveling together, has two bedrooms. Onewith king-size bed and ensuite shower bath and another with both a queen and single bed and a private hall bath. Both rooms share a large balcony that overlooks the garden and meadows. A kitchen/living area downstairs has a fireplace for winter evenings and a deck for summer relaxing.
The Farmhouse only serves breakfast but arrangements can be made to have meals catered for small retreat groups. A large gathering room serves as a formal meeting place for small groups. In warm weather the porches and walking paths are favorite places for quiet discussions. A telephone, Tv, and vcr are available in the gathering room and the Carriage House. A fax machine can be made available. Local restaurants are 15-20 minutes away but some folk prefer to walk to the little Tomahawk Store to purchase a freshly made sub or soft drink. No fancy exercise rooms at Tomahawk Run but there are quiet paths for the old fashioned walking that so many enjoy.
We welcome children in the Carriage House but we are sorry that we cannot take pets. We are a non-smoking facility.
