Property description

Francena Cottage is my personal favorite of the Green Valley Cottages--it is just the right size for 2-4 people. Francena Cottage opened to guest in 2000 it has become home away from home for many couples and families.
Francena Cottage is furnished with a mix of vintage, antique and new furnishings. The vaulted and beamed ceilings add to its charm. Francena Cottage sits among the tall, red oak trees near Bear Creek. The views from the living room are of the forest which you will enjoy while dining or relaxing by the fireplace. The kitchen is fully furnished with electric range, microwave, toaster, coffee-maker, and refrigerator.
This two bedroom cottage sleeps four adults very comfortably with one queen size bed and one full size bed.

Electric baseboard heat and air conditioning keeps the cottage comfortable.

The full bath has a tub with shower and a full size washer/dryer. All bath and bed linens are provided. The decks at Francena Cottage are furnished with Adirondack chairs. Our relaxing Solana Hot Tub, makes this cottage a great place to enjoy the outdoors !

There is a picnic bonfire area with charcoal grill.

The two acre lake is stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish and Adirondack chairs are provided lakeside. There are several marked hiking trails on the property and a bonfire area with firewood and picnic table. We also have two bicycles in the summer for you to enjoy biking on Green Valley Lake Lane. The property is gated for your privacy and a key is provided so you may check yourself in anytime after 3 pm. and check-out is anytime before 11 am.

Another great thing about Francena Cottage is location :

New York City - 268 miles / Phil.,Pa.- 206 miles / Pitt., Pa.- 142 miles / Lancaster, Pa. - 140 miles / D.C.-Balti., Md.- 98 miles / Rich., Va.- 199 miles.

Spend a day at the lake boating or fishing. Go for a hike on one of our trails or take a bike ride. Build a campfire and wish on the stars within your reach. Be a kid again and spend some time at Francena Cottage. You won't want to leave !
