Hillside Enchanted Forest

We have 10 mostly wooded acres on the side of Braddock Mountain (right off Highway 70) at the end of a private road. There are also some open grassy areas around the house. 🌲 There is an unmaintained trail through the woods just beyond the driveway, indicated by a brown ‘Trail’ sign. PLEASE NOTE: The property overall is on a steep hill so it is best for those looking for a little more adventure. 🛑 We do not have any pets. You may occasionally see wildlife in the woods though so please beware and understand you are accepting all risks when you make a reservation with us. FULL DISCLOSURE: At times, we block our Sniffspot calendar to allow hunting on the property so there is always a possibility of finding animal remnants. ☝️ We approach Sniffspot as a ‘set it and forget it’ operation. Our goal is to share unused space with the community because we no longer have pets. We do not actively invest time and money into ‘perfecting’ our Spot or creating additional offerings like you may see with other Spots. 📧 You will receive a message from us a few hours before your visit with Wifi and other information. 🌎 We accept last minute bookings but please know that we travel often so you may visit at a time when we’ve been away and the grass may be longer than usual, or the garbage more full than usual. Thanks for understanding! Happy Sniffing!

????Lauren's Private Dog Park In Reisterstown????

Hi everyone! I have a small 13 acre private farm in rural Reisterstown, Maryland. We are very secluded and offer a peaceful place to bring your furry friend for a relaxing time exploring our lush pastures and wooded trails. It’s the perfect location to get away from it all. It’s ideal for fearful dogs that need solitude. Bring your babe and enjoy! Guaranteed to have a relaxing, quiet time. I do have chickens in the back yard that will be locked up in a run during your visit. I will provide a water bowl, some dog toys, poop bags, trash can, and a couple sling chairs. You are welcome to bring a portable hammock or additional chairs, whatever makes you comfortable. Newly added shelter to stay out of the sun or rain! I only ask that you clean up after your pet and self and please put the toys back in the bucket for others to enjoy. Unfortunately, there isn’t a bathroom on-site -other than big trees that is. Access to the woods can be from around the outside of the fenced area to the left and into the trail near the bottom pasture gate. The trail dead ends at the cow fencing. Stay on the trail and you will stay on our property! You may see our puppies out from time to time but they will be kept confined in the yard around the house. I try to keep it to a minimum when guests are around though. If you see us out, come say hi if you like. We love having you! If you want privacy and peace, I got you! This is an inclusive environment 🏳️‍🌈… all are welcome!
