"We stayed at Green Valley for two nights after our wedding. It worked out to be almost exactly halfway between Pittsburgh (where we were married) and Philadelphia (where we live). It was honestly the perfect little honeymoon getaway. Francena Cottage completely exceeded our expectations - everything was neat and very clean, the furnishings are very nice and modern, and everything is right where you want it. It feels like a cross between a cottage in the woods and a decent hotel room. It's comfortable but very modern and warm! We went to a local place to pick up sandwiches the first night, and enjoyed a quick trip to Berkeley Springs the following day to pick up supplies for dinner and explore. I have stayed in a lot of cabins and cottages over the years, and it is really hard to find a place where you are comfortable making a full meal. My husband and I really enjoy cooking, and could have easily made meals here all week. We also found time to soak in the hot tub (while checking out the stars), we explored some of the trails around the property and biked to the lake where we took a sunset paddle boat ride. I took a dip, but it was still a bit cold for me to swim in the lake, but that's what the hot tub is for! On our way home, we explored many of the historic sites along the C&O Canal. I haven't been able to stop raving about the cottage and how peaceful everything was since we have gotten back. I also have to add how nice the owner is to work with. We accidentally forgot my husbands tuxedo on our way out, and she graciously shipped it back to us. I'm already encouraging my family and friends to pick a weekend we can return soon!"

"This was our 7th visit to Green Valley and our first stay at Excelsior. We enjoyed peace and relaxation and the beauty of nature as always. It was a fabulous getaway for our 15th anniversary. Our dogs had a wonderful time too. We can't wait to come back again."

"This was our 4th trip to the Green Valley. Loved the cottages, lake, trails, fishing, and the peace and quiet. Great place to unwind and read a book. If you are looking for a day out, try nearby Berkeley Springs with nice little shops, spa and dining. The owner, Lola was wonderful to work with and met every accommodation. Our big bonus was bringing our 2 westies. Not many really nice places such as the cottages allow pets. We will return for many years to come."
