Lockhouse 25

Lockhouse 25, originally completed in 1830, interprets the story of the C&O Canal and the town that surrounded Edwards Ferry during the Civil War. The lock, lockhouse and the ruins of Jarboe’s store are set next to the Edwards Ferry Boat Ramp which looks across the river to Virginia. The lockhouse is conveniently located 4.5 miles from the town of Poolesville, MD, providing access to groceries and supplies, as well as additional historical discoveries! This lockhouse is rustic with no electricity or running water.

So lovely! House is quaint and comfortable -- and interesting as well. Great location bw canal and Potomac (just a min walk away -- great place to watch sunset). All windows have screens. Was super clean when we arrived. Bring lots of water, and plan to pack your trash. Perfect stopover for an overnight bike trip! Now, I want to stay in all the lockhouses! Thank you C&O Canal Trust!

Homestead Farms

Reviewed By NanC258 - Washington DC, United States

Lovely family farm! We visited many years ago when our children were small. I was glad to see the goat bridge is still operational! We didn’t want to pick apples but loved the rows and rows of zinnias. At $6 per bag (or 50 cents per stem), I brought home an armload of vivid colors home. Great selection of fresh produce. The farm was fairly crowded but there was enough space to keep our distance. People were good about wearing masks.

Rocklands Farm Winery and Market

Reviewed By bkenn66 - Gaithersburg, United States

This place is fantastic. Have heard so many friends going over the years so I had to finally try it out. Have gone 3 times in the past 4 months. The wine and cider is excellent. The woodfired pizza served by Pizza Brahma is terrific, the atmosphere is charming, ample seating and a beautiful setting. Poolesville‘s gem for sure!????????

McKee Bershers is totally worth a trip and it’s free. You feel like you’re in France and in a Monet painting. It’s off River Road in Poolsville/Potomac, MD. follow the map that’s on McKee website, there are no signs that point to the 3 sunflower fields. You can also check the condition of the flowers on the website so that you don’t make the trek If they haven’t fully bloomed due to rain or wilt at the end of the season.
