Why Pamela Baldwin chose Loudoun County
The Shepherd's Cottage is highly suitable for families or reunions with a few friends., featuring 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen and dining space, a deck with grill and outdoor picnic table. . Our location is unbeatable for a wide variety of sights and activities -- historic, recreational, rural and epicurean -- while also offering easy access to Washington DC and Baltimore, MD. We have also been a favorite place for writers to work in peace and quiet while taking advantage of our internet connections. We recently served as the location for an independent film, and for a renowned group of artists who painted our outstanding landscapes during the autumn season. The cottage also serves as an ideal space for brides and bridesmaids to receive services from hair and makeup artists before their weddings here at WeatherLea between May and October.
