Hedgesville is probably one of the only actual "small towns" of the Eastern Panhandle. The main part of town consists of a handful of local shops, a convenience store, post office, fire station, a small strip mall and one stoplight. Hedgesville spreads out into more wooded areas with one main road going through the center of town. The roadway is major Route 9 which will take you along to Berkeley Springs. Check out the town site for more info.
Hedgesville is rather rural and no bus services run in the town. Ride Share drivers are your best means of travel other than your own vehicle. D.C. is about 85 miles South West, Winchester, VA is about 30 miles North, Hagerstown, MD is about 20 miles East, and the PA state line is only twenty seven minutes away.
The Woods Resort
The Woods Resort is open to the public, but an account will be needed to book your appointments. They offer skin care, massages, body treatments, waxing, mani/pedi services, and more.
Sleepy Creek WMA
Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area is a form of nature preserve. The area offers 75 primitive campsites that are open year round. Since the roads are gravel and narrow, no camper/trailer longer than 17 feet is permitted. Pets are also allowed, but need to be leashed at all times.
Shadow Hawk Defense is a full service gun range, shop, and training ground. They offer various length ranges both covered and uncovered. On their calendar you can find events such as conceal carry courses, when rooms are being cleaned, challenges, and training classes.
North American Bush Craft School
Enjoy expanding your horizons with the art of bushcraft! Learn how to make weapons, track, live off the land, learn herbalism and so many other useful courses. You can bring a group and have a private lesson as well. The North American Bushcraft School also offers day camps in short and long week varieties. Short weeks are for ages 8 and up and long weeks are for ages 11 to 17.
Stauffer's Marsh Preserve
Take an hour-long hike through the restored marshlands that boarder Sleepy Creek and what has been formed into Stauffer's Marsh Preserve. The Potomac Valley Audubon Society with the Wetlands Reserve Program repurposed marshy farmland into the 46 acre, 167 different nesting bird species park we see today. This is a Leave No Trace preserve so take your trash with you. Read the rules for pets, anything other than foot traffic, and hunting prior to your trip.
Hedgesville is definitely a slower paced town in the Eastern Panhandle. You have some shopping in the area, but not as much as other areas nearby. The walkability for the town is low if you are not in the actual main portion of the town. There are no sidewalks, but everything is rather close together. There is tons of nature jam packed throughout the area and a bit of driving is required to get to your destination.
The town is perfect if you love being out in "the woods" but still a short car ride away from civilization. Your home in the hills could be a short jaunt away from a major roadway to take you to a major town.
Hedgesville offers mostly detached single family homes. There are some attached homes/town houses in the area. There are a few pockets of more expensive neighborhoods, but they are few and far between. The town has the potential for home prices to range from the millions to a mere $65,000. The majority of homes offer at least an acre of land.
All of the nature and nature related activities that you can do around the area. Some of which are very unique to the Eastern Panhandle and the Hedgesville area. (hint: bushcraft school!)
The town is the border to the more rural areas of West Virginia. Hedgesville is wide and most of the actual town is in the more wilderness-heavy areas. There is staple shopping and a fire station. Hedgesville can get busy with commuter traffic through the main drag along Route 9.
