Boiling Springs house description
Located in the quaint little town of Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, the Creek Cottage is a dream vacation home. Only a two hour drive outside of the District of Columbia, this picturesque water-front home resides in one of America’s oldest towns, which in 1984 was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Enjoy tranquil fishing and boating in the summer, hiking all year round, and nearby ski-ing and tubing in the winter. Check our calendar, or call for last minute cancellations.
In the winter, one can choose to go skiing or tubing for the day or even just the afternoon, at Ski Roundtop, only a half an hours drive from home. Right off the backyard of the Creek Cottage, runs the Yellow Breeches Creek, consistently stocked with trout, this creek has recently gained a national reputation to being home to some of the best fly fishing in America. It is also less than an hour away from outlet mall shopping.
The Allenberry Play House is the famous resort owned and operated by the Heinz family. The Historic Allenberry staged their first play in 1948 and has continued throughout the years with class and elegance.
One of the America’s most historic landmarks, The Gettysburg Battlefield, is located only half an hours drive from the Creek Cottage. In the same amount of time, one can drive out to Hershey Park and enjoy all the rides, entertainment and chocolate one’s inner child could desire.
The creek cottage has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a large great room consisting of an open kitchen, an entertainment center and a dining area. The master bedroom has a King sized bed and en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. The other downstairs bedroom has 2 single beds. The upper floor has a bedroom, with two twin beds and an adjoining sitting room, with a queen sized pull down futon. Ideal for a family, short or long term rental, or home leave in the USA. It is also close to Dickinson College - ideal for home-coming weekends, college visits, or graduation weekend.

Loved it! What a peaceful little cottage to get away from it all. Our group of seven Moms made the short 45 minute trip from our homes (just far enough to get away from the kids and husbands) for a weekend of scrapbooking, movie watching and alot of just silly girl talk. We highly recommend the pizza at Anile's, yum! Next time we plan to try the Tavern. We just can't say enough about the place. The word "picturesque" definitely fits. - The Scrap Sistas Katie, Heather, Melinda, Laurie, Linda, Beth and Holly

Thank you for the use of your rental; Sam, Phillip, and I enjoyed ourselves! The town is lovely, and your home is fun and interesting. I especially loved the glass in the hutch and the green vessels on the shelf of the hutch. Thank you for sharing. Natalie

Cottage in Boiling Springs.
We loved the town and area od Boiling Springs. The cottage is located on the creek and down a very nice private road. The dock was lovely and the paddle boat was fun. The sheets and bathrooms were very clean but felt that the house could be dusted more and front of the fridge area cleaned. The cupboards were full of dishes and pots and pans which left us no where to store dry goods. It rained for 2 days and the deck was extremely slippery from mold build up, it did dry out. The back deck area could have used a good cleaning. We had a very pleasant week and enjoyed the area very much, however we would not rent again.

Owner response: This was a surprising comment considering the effort that is put into making this a home away from home. The kitchen is equipped with utensils and supplies for large family gatherings, however it is still a "cottage", so space if limited. However, there is a large fridge, and additional space in the adjacent laundry room for additional items. We will respond to this comment accordingly. This summer has been exceptionally wet, and the deck has suffered, however we responded immediately and have had the deck professionally updated. We encourage comments, and make ourselves available at all times to respond immediately. Our number is posted and we encourage communication during everyones stay. Sincerely, Susan

We loved the "Cottage". Although, it is larger than a cottage, in fact, larger than we expected. We enjoyed our stay so much. Our family came to visit while we were there and didn't want to leave. The creek in the back is just steps from the huge deck and was calming and peaceful! Our grandson loved the paddle boat and our nieces enjoyed the canoe. They also played pool in the garage that was styled nicely. The bedrooms were more than adequate - 2 bathrooms were handy when my brother and his family decided to spend a few nights with us. Oh, the kitchen, can't forget the kitchen! Fully stocked! We cooked Shrimp Creole and served 13 people on the deck! Plenty of everything to throw a little party! Susan, thank you so much for being easy to contact. I hope I get to stay there again. My family is already telling all their friends about the cottage!

Not what I hoped
Not what I hoped
This was a huge vacation for my family. I want to first say the owners were fine to deal with and very helpful for the few things we needed tended to (A/C wasn't working properly which they quickly brought us a window unit). This house is an older home. When we arrived I was a little taken aback by the cobwebs on the garage. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are down stairs the master and a room with two small beds. The 3rd is upstairs in the "attic" room is what we called it...you have to duck to go up to the futon or the twin beds. not the best for adults...the kitchen was capable of serving a family 6. The deck is nice. The biggest draw back for me was the bedrooms. I felt they lacked attention to detail/cleanliness and as far as the master one of the lamps was really dirty and broken. The master shower curtain has mold/mildew...again a detail that could be tended to. Leaving anything other than positive comments is really difficult for me; however, I heavily relied on all reviews for everything while in PA, so I felt it only fair to represent. The pictures of the house are only of the living area and patio...no bedrooms are shown...I would recommend asking for one prior to renting The game room is in the garage however it is very musty and hot.....for a pool playing family, we never used it! Again, this house is old and it shows...nonetheless it did meet our needs. One other thing I think bears mention...When we came home from a day trip I noticed that there was new furniture on the patio and the boat and chairs were straightened....This would have been fine if a note was left stating what was done....however, it was not and left me feeling as though the owners family (which lives next door) came to check on the house while we were out. I AM NOT SAYING THEY DID....just a feeling. As grateful as I was to be with my family I have to say that I could not recommend this house. We have rented several VRBO's and we know we have been really lucky with our homes....this one was a let down.

Owner response: "I was disappoint to read the recent review as it is just the opposite from the comments we usually get. It was especially disconcerting given the extra effort we made to immediately address any of the concerns that the renters brought to our attention. But we welcome the feedback and will look into each of the issues that were highlighted. FYI, I do not live next door but try and visit the house as much as I can, the new patio furniture and the cleaning of the boat were provided as a courtesy during my most recent visit. We live 2 hours away, and make ourselves available to respond to any and every request or concern. The bedrooms are well described. The upstairs bedroom has 2 single beds, as does the downstairs bedroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed. In addition, there is a queen size futon upstairs that can be used if additional bedding is required, and we advertise it as such. The house is definitely old, but has been renovated many times since its original structure in 1924, when it was a quaint little cottage. The kitchen is completely modernized, and we enjoy a family gathering of about 20 (and sometimes more) every Thanksgiving, which not only includes Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, but many more meals over our 5-day family holiday. I welcome all comments.
The location is relaxing. The water is calming. There is so much to do within an hour's drive! The owners are so pleasant and responsive! I recommend this home for anyone who wants to just get away from the Real World for a while!

As I type this, I am sitting on the back patio (the one in the photo), "drink" in hand and listening to the creek waters roll by. My fiance and I got this place for our wedding reception and for however great we thought it was when booking, we were blown away when we got here. Outside is peaceful and inside is spacious and cozy. If you are looking for a place to rent in Boiling Springs, this is the place to go...plus the owners have been great to work with.

We had a fabulous time at this quaint and lovely home! There were 6 of us who had rarely, if ever, spent time away from our husbands/children. It was better than we anticipated and certainly the relaxing weekend we were all looking for. We are anticipating another trip here in the fall!

We just returned from a relaxing week at this cottage with family. It was the perfect location for our mini-reunion. It is nicely decorated and stocked with high-quality linens and kitchenware. It made it feel like home to have such nice details. We got out on the paddle boat and canoe where many of the funniest memories took place. :) And the brothers enjoyed the pool table well into the night. All our daytrip destinations were much closer than I even expected. We intend to return next year a little earlier in the season to catch some of the summer attractions we missed.

What a great place!
What a great place!
We just returned from our visit to Boiling Springs and have to say that we had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful and well furnished. We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious it is and how tranquil. The fishing was good, loved seeing the ducks (whom we named Bob, Bernadette, and George), and just relaxing in this great setting. The owners were friendly and saw to our every need - even once we arrived. The location is very convenient for day trips to Hershey and Gettysburg. Boiling Springs itself is a beautiful setting. The pool in Boiling Springs and the Children's Lake are definitely highlights. This is definitely someplace that we look forward to returning to again!
