Rustically Stunning And Near Camp David Too

New, 1 comment

Welcome to Trout Run, a previous hideaway for several presidents who found the fishing better here than over at Camp David (just down the road). This 450-acre compound has five furnished residences with a main house that both Presidents Hoover and Roosevelt stayed in during their time in office (now referred to as the "Hoover House"). Another of the five buildings is called the "Yugoslav House" because it is a replica of Belgrade’s first Parliament building (commissioned for the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle). The list of amenities include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, shuffleboard and basketball courts, barbeque facilities, and hunting opportunities for turkey, deer, and the like. The property has been in the family of the current owners since the forties. They, Tomajean and Howard Haugerud (he, a former official with the State Department), have it listed for $$8.95M.
