“Fantastic home, fantastic hosts! We loved it and plan to return!”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2017

Chris and Melissa could not have been nicer. The home had everything we needed, right down to a potato peeler! Clean, neat, well-appointed. Everything worked well. Our kids and grandkids loved the walk-out basement and watching the birds every morning. We enjoyed the trails, the beautiful snow-covered fields and trees, and the lovely creek that was partially iced over. It was cold outside, but oh so warm and welcoming inside. Our whole family loved our time at Vista. We all give it our highest recommendation. Thank you from the Gandees!

“Perfect, cozy home away from home!”

We loved our stay at the Vista Country Home. Our hosts were delightful and the accomodations were just perfect for our family. It was quiet, peaceful and gorgeous. We will definitely return when we are next in pa. It was wonderful.

“Vista is an amazing home in a gorgeous pastoral setting, in the”

The description of Vista is certainly accurate, but we found it to be even better in person. Vista is a very special place that reflects the love and care of the Batten family. The spotless, comfortable, spacious home offers unobstructed country views showing off the Maryland countryside. The well-equipped kitchen and new gas BBQ made it easy to prepare meals. All of the outdoor areas are inviting to watch the active bird feeders, eating on the patio or deck, glimpsing the fish in the pond and watching sunsets and approaching thunderstorms. Vista is highly recommended! Vista provides a perfect base from which to explore the many historical sites. Chris and Melissa were available to answer any questions we had and made welcome suggestions, as did Bruce. The four of us stayed at Vista for 9 days and it was truly difficult to leave our new friends Chris and Melissa. As my friend said, "Every day we were so glad to have this slice of heaven to come home to." Rating 5 out of 5

“Perfect for Gettysburg and antietam :)”

Close to Gettysburg, Antietam !! Review Submitted: September 4, 2012 Date of Stay: August 2012 This house was incredible for our stay. We had 4 adults and 4 teenagers. Us adults got the bedrooms ( with our own full bathrooms ) and the teens got the basement room (with their own full bathroom ). We were able to grill out, have breakfast every morning and just relax. Morning coffee on the deck - so peaceful, I must have counted 15 hummingbirds. This place is just beautiful. The beds were so comfortable. The location is perfect if Gettysburg, Antietam, Harpers Ferry, Baltimore or Frederick interests you. The Battens are wonderful hosts, we wish we could have stayed an extra day to visit, explore their farm, walk the creek and absorb the peacefulness of this place. This house was immaculate!! Rating 5 out of 5

“Professional's Paradise”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2012

I can't say enough about Vista. Words fail me. It was that good. This home is spotless, and with its beveled glass front door and tasteful furnishings you might think you've stepped into the pages of home decor magazine. Think of the nicest hotel you've ever stayed at times 10 but with Vista, here you get the whole house which included three separate bathrooms, one of which is located downstairs to accommodate the three beds down there, thus maintaining the privacy and the dignity of all the travelers. There was plenty of room for the kids to run around and make noise with no one banging on thin hotel room walls telling them to be quiet, and a stunning library courtesy of the owner. There were maps of the surrounding area, travel pamphlets and a thoughtfully written notebook further detailing Vista itself as well as the Taneytown area. The large windows and gorgeous patios were a perfect showcase to the stunning views from the house. We're city people so the fireflies, deer, colorful birds, other little critters and the frogs out front in the lily pond were an exciting change of scenery for the kids. (We specifically came to see the fireflies because we have none here in L.A., lol) And I shouldn't forget to say that Vista is way less than an hour from Gettysburg; less than an hour and a half from Frederick, Harper's Ferry and Washington D.C. (although I'd take the train there from Frederick if I had to do it again tho). For the harried professional, I couldn't think of a better place to decompress, unwind and get caught up on paperwork if you're one of those people who has to take your work with you on vacation. The dining room table is massive, the room is cheerful, there is air conditioning and plenty of privacy if you need it. I really hope we can come back, it was just that good.

Reviewed 18 Nov 2012

This house was perfect for our family. The house itself is charming, and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is situated in a very private, quiet part of the Maryland countryside, yet it is near to so many interesting and beautiful sites. Harper's Ferry, Gettysburg, Baltimore, are all just a short, easy, drive away. Near to town with good shopping for essentials. The kitchen is amazing if you want to cook, but if not, there are many great restaurants nearby. The wildlife is magical and to top it off, It takes about 2 minutes of chatting with the hosts for you to want to be their friends forever. Such nice people! Thank you for a very memorable stay!
