Pleasant Springs Farm Bed and Breakfast near Boyds, Maryland is the perfect choice for peace and comfort after a day of touring in Washington DC. Just-married couples delight in complete privacy and many anniversaries are celebrated. Full breakfast at your time is the daily event. Sheep may baa and frogs sing, rain may beat a tatoo on the tin roof, but otherwise there are no sounds to disturb your repose. Nearby is Black Hills Regional Park with its 550 acre lake, Little Seneca State Park, the Potomac River, Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and Towpath and Sugarloaf Mountain. Fine dining may be enjoyed at the Comus Inn. Within three miles is Germantown with many restaurants, shopping, Black Rock Center for the Arts, Starbucks, grocery stores. The MARC train at Boyds (free parking) whisks visitors into Washington or they may go by METRO, an easy 25 minute drive.The log cabin at Pleasant Springs Farm, built in 1768, has welcomed family and guests for nearly 250 years. The current owners have made every effort to retain the authenticity, yet provide the finest facilities for today’s guests. Professional architects resulted in a prize-winning restoration for this National Register site. The chestnut logs, stone fireplace, tin roof and narrow stairway are much the same as they were when George Washington was a youngster. He would have liked the sparkling bathrooms and stainless steel in the kitchen. Exquisite care is taken of the flower-and-vegetable-filled gardens. Bluebirds and butterflies provide motion. Down at the fish-filled pond, a canoe is ready to be paddled about and a path leads into woods filled with huge old trees.
