The Friday blog series, "Welcome to Our Town", introduces you to different towns/areas in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia. When contemplating purchasing a new home, it's always good to do your research on the area. We hope this blog helps you to choose your forever home in a fun and exciting town that you love...and when you find it, call or email us, to discuss your financing options.
Welcome to Thurmont, MD; located 60 miles from DC and Baltimore, and only 15 minutes south of Gettysburg, PA. Smell the fresh air while hiking The Catoctin Mountain Park and discover the history of the Blue Blazes Still. Cunningham Falls State Park is located just across the street for more hiking, fishing, scenic falls, camping, and a relaxing beach. Wander down to Main Street for strolling, shopping, and of course, our beautiful Murals adjacent to yet another hiking trail, The Thurmont Trolley Trail. Taste the fresh fruit of Thurmont’s orchards, wineries, farmers market, and some of the finest dining in Maryland! Touch the animals on the Safari Ride at the Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo while interacting with other exotic animals. See the rolling landscape and scenic view sheds that capture a palette of fall colors in October. Last, but not least, hear nothing but peaceful streams, and sounds of a peaceful community located at the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains! Here you will find just a few of our favorite places and spaces.
