Manager info

About: Southern Lancaster County has been my home for my entire life. I live 10 minutes away from Creekside Cottage and have been in the Real Estate business for many years. It has been my vision to create a place for guests to stay while visiting beautiful Southern Lancaster County. Creekside Cottage's manager, Carol Gibson, a retired teacher, was also born and raised in Southern Lancaster County.

Why Lancaster:
This property is adjacent to my country cabin and stables. The rich history and natural attractions in this area inspired me to build Creekside Cottage. Come learn, relax and explore this beautiful area!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I designed Creekside Cottage with comfort and efficiency in mind. The wood used for the kitchen island, kitchen table, walls in the den and Master bathroom all came from the trees on my property. If you stroll down behind the cottage, you will discover the most amazing natural rock wall. May you find peace, comfort and serenity during your visit!
