Below on the bottom of the community it seems like any other beautiful mountain community with all the Ammenities. BUT this property ON TOP of the mountain you are just far enough away and secluded from anyone else to make it "Your own little Piece of Heaven" from Spring fed lakes, Swimming, Boating, Fishing, Hiking, Biking, par 3 golf, Cross Country Skiing, etc Minutes from Fire Dept, Regional Medical Ctr and Winchester activities. County maintained hard surfaced roads. This cabin was built by me and is rustic. Outhouse included. No plumbing, does have propane heat. Sleeps 9, Loft upstairs can accommodate 2 adults and 4 kids and bottom bunks 3 adults. All hand carved wood beams right off the property. Solid as an ox. Lots of windows. Huge Bay window upstairs allows for the people sleeping in the loft to look out over the entire valley (looking right over the city of Winchesters twinkling lights and on the other side of the valley Skyline drive). This community is a hidden Gem with an easy commute to D.C. Takes about 10 mins to get to Walmart and 20 mins to get to Downtown Winchester. Private community lake with Whitesand beach and Life Guard. Multiple parks, Golf, Basketball courts, Covered bus areas for kids. Lot is Build ready. Hoa fee's are low and NOT your normal HOA. Its not even really an HOA its called "Shawneeland Santitary District" It was created by the county of Frederick to save the community from Bankruptcy. They do not have an architectural review board. Build what you want. All they control is Trash dump onsite, roads, general maintenance, lake, facilities. Campers are Allowed. Power is right to the Property and Costs about $500 to have them hook up a temporary Power pole with meter and Power panel on the property for "Construction Purposes". Taxes right now with just the cabin are $112 a year. Important note: If you look at the pic of the plat. When you turn on to Winchester trail. Its an unimproved road. This whole section of lots on Winchester Trail, Jack wood trail. Gore Trail Ext.......Are all unimproved roads because the 3 cabins that are down there in this section don't want the roads Improved. Jackwood trail is just that a trail. She likes it that way headed to her cabin. Winchester trail is accessible via a truck and or car only because I had them bulldoze once in 20 years. So I could get to the cabin easier. But look closely at the other roads. They are tree covered and only a small atv trail or hiking trail goes down them. Has been this way for 70 years since they were sub-divided 70 years ago. In 20 years I have never seen or met the other 2 owners or ever seen them up there. This area is untouched and backs right up to "Lord Fairfax" land of over 1000 acres all the way to the bottom. Just to be clear though the community is required to maintain all the roads. Once you buy it you can ask and they are required to properly prepare the roads to your property should you want it that way. They have a gravel qaury on top the mountain. If you go and see this property I would highly recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. SEE BELOW: History of Shawneeland Shawneeland was created as a resort and recreational community taking advantage of the natural mountainous landscape of Great North Mountain. The original focus was a ski resort that catered to DC residents as a place to get away from the fast pace of city life. Shawneeland was formed by Don Lamborne in 1955 and originally included 7,000 acres with 3,000 lots. As the community grew and residents wanted to live there year round, increased services were needed and so the county took over in 1987 with a sanitary district to administer all of the property.Many of the details in this article have been found in the Lamborne library collection which houses 4 boxes of documents on Shawneeland starting in 1955 to present day. Roger Lamborne, Don’s son and local real estate agent, and others also share a lot of information on the Shawneeland Facebook page which is a great place to see comments from residents that were present in the beginning days!Shawneeland included beginner and advanced ski slopes, a lodge, restaurant, pool, lake with beach, golf course, shooting range, horse back riding, and even a teen club. The Shawneeland Ski area was the first in the nearby Washington DC using man made snow. The first season was underway in 1956 with one small slope. It would be expanded to a Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced slopes with tow ropes to bring skiiers back to the top. A ski lodge was constructed at the top of the ridge at the end of Echota Trl with ski rentals and a small café for coffee, burgers etc.The Tecumseh Lodge was the place to relax by one of the fireplaces, or even rent a room upstairs for visiting family. Originally the “Jacob Kackley” cabin, built in the mid 1700’s and then expanded, it was known for having a stream running through the basement that exited through a pipe and into a pond. The lodge was demolished in 1992.Lake Cherokee started filling in 1964. There were even English Fallow Reindeer housed in the wooded area behind the mail house at the entrance. The Council Fire area was where barbeque chicken and sumptuous rounds of beef were cooked by Operations Manager Charles Whetzel over open flame for the many weekend lawn parties at the lodge.Swan Lake Manor House was located at the corner of Shawnee and Tecumseh Trails. The original stables were behind the Manor House on Tecumseh Trail. Horse back riding was one of the most popular summer activities among Shawneeland’s property owners and their guests. Jerry Clowser managed the stables for much of this time period. The first stables were located in the barn that once stood on Shenandoah Trail near the existing beach. Barn dances were also popular activities in those days. After that barn was torn down, the tradition of dances continued on the tennis courts by Tecumseh Lodge.After the old swimming pool was closed the new swimming pool opened in July 1968 just in time for the fourth of July weekend festivities. This pool was located on the ridge near Aspen and Maple Trails and replaced the first Shawneeland pool that was located across from the lodge. The Tot lot is situated there now.The Clowser house is the only original historic house structure that remains in Shawneeland in tact. There is currently fundraising and public support to save the house. The Clowser family is famous in our area for dealing with, and surviving Indian raids after the French and Indian War.

I personally take my side by side right from the property and head down the powerlines right on top that run right into West Va as far as the eye can see.
