Trout Run is a 453-acre countryside mountain retreat very close to Camp David and has just been listed for nine million dollars. This was the private retreat and fishing lodge for former U.S. Presidents which is now listed for a whopping $8.95 Million. Maryland’s lush Catoctin Mountains are just sixty miles away from The White House. The estate at the mountain top in Maryland offers a comfortable access to the waterway. The trout stream runs along the property two miles which is a superb fishing locale. It’s been a favourite secret destination of many former presidents including Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Herbert Hoover, and many commander-in-chiefs.
These famous men frequently used to come to Camp David and in this hideaway U.S. presidents conferred with advisers, fished and entertained. This 450 acre estate is populated with grouse, deer and wild turkey, running stream, hunting grounds, swimming pool and stone buildings is really a remarkable spot of American history. The mountaintop property in Maryland provides easy access to a shaded waterway with loads of fish. Hoover wrote about angling with great passion that whoever happens to come to the brook, one’s soul will be washed with pure air and the shimmering sun from the blue water.
There are five stone lined separate quarters for guests. The area is visibly prominent with catoctin having sloping roofs with three story windows overlooking the stream. The buildings have many original furnishings and porch from where President Roosevelt used to watch the bubbling brook. Yugoslav House is the replica of parliament building of Belgrade, designed for Seattle World’s Fair. It is three storied house featuring a movie theatre and was a favourite of Amy Eisenhower.
