"My husband arranged a getaway for my 40th Birthday. We have hectic work schedules and kids playing multiple sports keeps our home life extra busy! We needed the perfect getaway and we found it!! The first day we arrived it was like a warm spring day! We hiked the trails, rode the bikes and hung out by the lake area. We later built a camp fire and then relaxed in the hot tub! The next day we woke up and were in a winter wonderland with about 3 inches of snow! We hiked some more, built a snow man and enjoyed the peace and quite of the property! No phones ringing and no errands to run! We saw a herd of deer and many other little critters while out and about. Our dog loved the time off leash on his hikes!! The Francena cottage was adorable! So nicely decorated, and had everything we needed!! We made a full Italian meal the second night and sat by the fire place playing games and watching movies!! The kitchen had all the pots/pans and appliances we needed to accomplish that! I can't say enough about this property! We decided on that trip that we would be back and have in fact booked another trip to Green Valley. After showing the pictures to our daughter she asked to come here for her 13th Birthday (not the beach as originally planned) so we will be back during the summer!! We are looking very forward to enjoying the time on the lake, fishing, swimming and hiking the trails with the kids and dogs!! We were very happy to find Green Valley, then were so happy to see that we could bring our fur kids as well!! We love including them on our trips and have surely found our new go to place!!! We stayed two nights and the time went by so fast....next time we are staying longer for sure!!! Perfect home away from home!!!! :)"

"My friends and I were looking for a place to get away from it all for a weekend and this place was perfect for that. It was a fairly secluded house with only one far away neighbor in sight. The interior was very comfortable. We particularly liked the wood burning stove. The interior was fairly well maintained with only a few minor repairs needed. The exterior was pretty with a wrap around porch and a swing. The owner was very nice and was easy to work with. The last half mile to the house is very rough with rocks and steep hills. However we were able to make it easily even with our small car. However, I would guess you would need a 4x4 if there was a lot of snow.
I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to escape to the woods for a few days."

"My husband and I visited the owners at this cottage, as Doug & Mary Ellen are my husbands friends from many years ago. This visit was my first time to the cottage, and I was very impressed. I own and manage several rental properties at Raystown Lake, and I can no way compare the privacy this cottage offers to the guest, fantastic! So peaceful, clean, very nicely decorated, and the personal touch the owners offer is so welcoming! We met with some fellow friends in for a Huntingdon class reunion from Florida at this cottage, and as we sat on the deck overlooking the river, the peaceful setting was so inviting! The short drive to the lake, one of the best dinners in Huntingdon County is nearby, as well as the plenty of things to do within a 15 minute drive. Great place to kick back and relax, and enjoy the nature this cottage has to offer. Thank you Dave and Mary Ellen for a wonderful dinner, and what a beautiful place you have!"

"What a wonderful stay. Comfortable, Clean, Well Appointed, Relaxing, Worry Free Living while vacationing. Easy to check in and easy to check out. Good location for wherever your travels take you. Guest book and brochure basket are very helpful for recommendations. We travelled with two adults and one child which worked well for this property. We would definitely recommend a stay at this property and will return if visiting the area again."
