The Fascinating Town In Maryland That Is Straight Out Of A Fairy Tale
When you think of fairy tales, what comes to mind? While most people may imagine a castle, I myself think of quaint cottages nestled among enchanted forests. Believe it or not, there’s a town in Maryland that’s quite reminiscent of a fairy tale village. Consider adding this underrated spot to your 2017 must-visit list.
Western Maryland boasts rolling mountains, rural views, and small woodland towns. There is one town in particular that's so rustic and endearing, it could be straight out of a fairy tale.
With a population of under 1,000 residents, Grantsville remains quiet and peaceful. The little details of the town are delightful. From old churches filled with character...
To the most adorable
you've ever seen.
Treat yourself to a relaxing weekend among nature by booking a stay at
The Casselman Inn.
Awake each morning by taking in the surrounding views from a rocking chair, with coffee in hand. Then, set out on your daily adventure.
History lovers will adore visiting Stanton's Mill. This centuries-old mill is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Continue your explorations by heading to
Casselman River Bridge State Park. This grand structure was built along the National Road in 1813 and it's absolutely breathtaking.
Not many people know that if you travel a bit further west, and you'll find this little known arch, also along the old National Road. It's enchanting, to say the least.
You could spend a couple of hours taking in the beauty of the park so be sure to bring a camera.
Feeling famished? Grab a bite to eat at
Penn Alps Restaurant
. This place is filled with charm, both inside and out.
After eating, explore the scenic grounds. A museum and artisan village are awaiting.
Other nearby attractions include
Savage River State Forest and New Germany State Park. It's hard to believe so much nature is wrapped into this one little fairy tale-esque town.
