"My daughters and I, and close friends of ours, spent our 2015 summer vacation at Ivy Cottage and going to Knoebels. When we arrived at Ivy Cottage, the beauty of the property was breathtaking. The cottage is located directly on the river, and it was everything we had hoped it would be when we viewed this cottage for rent on VRBO. When you walk in, you are surrounded by wood. The loft is awesome, my daughters and their friends spent all their free time up there talking, bonding and laughing. The screened in porch is wonderful, you can eat outside but be safe from flying insects, and be able to listen to the rushing river. The hot tub is new and pretty and feels great after a long day of riding rides at Knoebels. Knoebels is less than 10 minutes away from Ivy Cottage, and very convenient to town, only a few minutes ride. The cottage is located on an extremely quiet gravel road, and we took long walks to listen to the birds, photograph the wild flowers and sit and watch the river. We walked for an hour and never heard or saw a car. If you want absolute quiet, away from the hectic world, this is the place to go. Ivy Cottage has no tv, no wifi and we loved every second of being "off line" for a week. We didn't want to return to our normal world after staying at Ivy Cottage, we all wanted to live here forever, to enjoy the solitude and family bonding. There is a perfect fire pit for making smores, which we did several nights, and enjoyed the "billion stars" view above. Mary the owner is awesome, so nice and we were honored to stay in her cottage for our vacation. We will definitely be coming back to Ivy Cottage for another vacation, not soon enough for us. We recommend Ivy Cottage to everyone who wants to go to Knoebels, or go offline for a while, or just get away for family time."
