We stayed at Vista June 27th-31st. We have family in Emmitsburg (about 15-20 minutes away) and we were here for a family reunion of sorts. Usually we will stay in a hotel (which is no closer to our family than Vista) or our North Carolina family will split up and stay with family in whatever extra bedroom or couch happens...

About the neighbourhood
Vista Country Home sits atop a splendid hill overlooking 100s of acres of fields, streams and woodlands teeming with wildlife, including excellent bird watching, near the junction of 2 pristine creeks.

Peaceful and private in quiet country, it is only 3 miles from Taneytown, a quaint 200-yr-old town with supermarkets, restaurants, and other conveniences.

Gettysburg battlefield is an easy 20-min drive, and dozens of other historical sites--Antietam, Harper's Ferry, Baltimore--are within an hour. Hiking, birding, skiing, golf even paintball are all available on the property or very close by.

Spectacular sunrises and sunsets, often accented by constellations of dancing fireflies in a symphony of crickets and birdsong, conducted by our maestro, kermit the fountain frog. Ad...
