Peaceful countryside surrounds you with woods, streams, and pasture. The restored farmhouse has loads of room and porches where you can soak in a sunrise and a sunset. Birders paradise! Harper's Ferry, Frederick, Shepherdstown offer loads of fun and history. Two other houses, and a re-purposed Dairy Parlor are available for retreats too. Your stay supports farm programs that we offer children and adults from low income communities, people suffering with PTSD, and other life challenges.

The space
Spring House is a part of Fox Haven - a historic organic farm and non-profit ecological education center located along the Catoctin Creek in Jefferson, Maryland, within one hour of Washington D.C. and 15 minutes from the charming town of Frederick, MD. The restored farmhouse is in a tranquil location, surrounded by fields, forests, and trails. Wide-planked wooden floors, found treasures from the farmland and creek, beds piled high with handmade quilts, and porches with views that immediately lower your blood pressure and make you sigh, “aah” create a haven for a weekend getaway, family vacation, working retreat, and learning adventure.

Half bath on first floor, 2 full baths and washer/dryer on second floor.
When you want to explore beyond the farm, lovely downtown Frederick offers a variety of shops, award winning restaurants, parks, performing arts theaters, Frederick Keys minor league baseball, and free concerts during the summer months. Jefferson, I dare say, has one of the best pastry shops within 100 miles. Let the sweet smell of homemade donuts and cakes guide you! Harper’s Ferry, Antietam, Sharpsburg, and even Gettysburg are all within a 20-50 minute drive for those who relish civil war history. For the adventurer in you, take a rafting or tubing trip down the Shenandoah or Potomac Rivers, or head up to Annapolis Rocks for a climb, or even hike a section of the Appalachian Trail – all within 20-30 minutes of the farm. There are several wineries and ciders within 10-40 minutes of the farm that give tours and tastings regularly, as well as breweries that create some tasty beer.
We take extra care in disinfecting all surfaces and linens when we clean.

Where you’ll be

Middletown, Maryland, United States

Spring House is surrounded by fields, woods, and streams. Wildlife abounds! The Catoctin Nature Center, Appalachian Trail, Harper's Ferry, the wonderful town of Frederick with loads of fine restaurants, shops, galleries, museums, live entertainment is a 15 minute drive away, and Brunswick provides easy access to the C&O canal towpath for bike riding. So much to do! Jefferson itself has a delightful diner full of local character, an ice cream and sandwich shop, Hemp's meats (all local and delicious), and the Jefferson pastry shop to fill your belly.

Fox Haven Organic Farm & Learning Center is my passion. I am happiest when touring young and older folks around the farm, teaching about where our food comes from, healthy farming and gardening that leads to healthy soil, waterways, humans, and critters. Forests are my playgrounds. Our young adult children help and that is the best! Frederick, MD is a favorite place on this planet to eat, walk, talk with shop owners and artists, and attend Quaker Meeting for Worship. This precious part of Maryland is a wonderful place to visit and live.
