  • Just the trip we needed!!

    "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!!!! :)"

  • wonderful getaway!

    "This was the perfect place for a weekend getaway! The kitchen is open to the pool table and there is ample seating around the center island for watching the chef. The hot tub was fantastic after a day of hiking and kayaking on the lake. The lake is just a short walk down a wooded country lane. We would definitely come back! Although we did not bring a dog, the house was perfect for a couple/family traveling with their family pet! The owners were very friendly and helpful!"

  • Serene and Peaceful Cottage

    "I spent an enjoyable few days at Sophronia Cottage along with my very elderly dog. I was looking for a place that was not only dog friendly but "dog accessible," i.e., all on one floor and without slippery surfaces. Sophronia fit the bill, as my old gal could get in and out from the small deck off the bedroom and other than the kitchen and bathroom, the cottage is carpeted -- helpful for secure canine footing! Sophronia is quite compact in size, the smallest of the four cottages on the property. It is modestly but comfortably furnished and the front porch has wonderful chairs for reading or just gazing out at the surrounding area. I did not use the gas fireplace in the bedroom as the weather was unseasonably warm for May, but I'm sure it can be very cozy on a chilly night. A short walk from the cottage brings you to the small, picturesque lake, where you can sit on the dock and read or take out a paddle boat. My dog was able to walk down to the lake the first morning; other than that we took shorter walks along the path to the lake or in a nice big field adjacent to the path. Younger dogs would of course have no problem getting around the whole property, which is very secluded and private! With only four cottages (all on different parts of the property), Green Valley is wonderfully quiet and uncrowded, to say the least. The surrounding location is quite rural and local stores, restaurants, attractions, etc. are somewhat minimal. That did not bother me as I go away to primarily read and relax, but might be important for others to be aware of. All in all, Green Valley Cottages is a lovely property and I can understand why it has so many repeat visitors -- I hope to be one as well!"

  • Total Peace

    "My mother and I stayed at this property for a few days. I must say it was so very peaceful. The pictures do not do it justice. It is very spacious. The property was spotless and we had all the conveniences we needed. It was wonderful to sit in the living room and watch the squirrels and chipmunks play. Sit on the deck and watch the sunlight reflect off of the river. Bruce was extremely helpful giving us driving directions. Thanks Bruce."

Allegheny Mountains & Her Valleys Travel Tips

Bordering New York, the Allegheny Area of Pennsylvania

A trip to Allegheny Area vacation rentals in Pennsylvania will intimately acquaint you with both New York and Pennsylvania’s border. The Allegheny region sits in the far north, just east of Lake Erie. The closest city to the area is Bradford on the Pennsylvania side. Those partaking of Allegheny area resorts will find they can be along the border of the National Forest which extends south from the New York border. Whether you choose the comforts and personal touches of a resort or a private home with a cozy atmosphere and fully stocked kitchen, the Allegheny region is full of excitement and fun.

Stepping Into the Past at Allegheny Area Condos

Pennsylvania is rich with history and a mixture of cultures. It was in this state that the first shots of the French and Indian War were fired, as well as those for the American Revolution. The polio vaccine was worked on at the University of Pittsburgh. All of this is spread throughout the state which will make the history and culture of Allegheny of little surprise. Allegheny’s location made it important to Native Americans and later to white settlers. Allegheny is also the name of a city founded in 1788 along the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers near Pittsburgh. It was inhabited with Germans and later Croats, before turning into the Commons. The national forest offers 516,000 acres of land that was once free and is still untamed for visitors to Allegheny to enjoy.

The Allegheny National Forest Near Allegheny Area Vacation Rentals

The national forest is the one place tourists head each year due to its locale close to the Ohio and Allegheny Rivers. It is also the lush forests that draw in tourists with its numerous recreational activities on offer. Camping, picnicking, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, and skiing are all activities of the Allegheny area. For those renting a home along the forest's border, there are boat rentals and a boat ramp in the event you want to bring your own. In winter, skiing, snowmobiling, and skating are all available. Spring will bring wintery activities along with the adventure of hiking to see the new wildlife and flowers that dot the landscape.

In autumn, the forest is most vibrant with yellows, oranges, and reds due to the changing of the trees’ leaves. A photographer will delight in the beauty of the region, with the snow-capped mountains rising above the forest floor and the sun just breaking through the foliage.

Best Places to Explore While in the Allegheny Area

With the heritage Pennsylvania offers, it should come as no surprise that there are numerous historic places to visit. Many of the places on the list are in Pittsburgh which is just outside of the national park area. One place that is a must on the list is the Priory. The Priory was built in 1852 as the St. Mary’s German Catholic Church. A home was built in 1888 for the Bavarian Benedictine priests and brothers. The church eventually merged with Italian and Polish congregations before closing. Since its closure, the house has been turned into a banquet hall and bed and breakfast.

The Penn Brewery should also be on your list; it began in 1987. The old Eberhardt and Ober Brewery combined in one building to create the Penn Pilsner brew and other specialty beers. Tourists and vacationers like you travel each year to the Brewery for their German menu and live music.

During the late 19th century, Allegheny became a town for stately homes with many wealthy families of the area building grand estates. The area was named the Mexican War Streets due to General William Robinson Jr. who returned from the Mexican War to subdivide his land and name the streets after his battles. Today, one can still see many of the stately homes.

Dinner and Entertainment Offered Around Allegheny Area Resorts

The influence of the German culture has made its mark on the cuisine one can experience while in Pennsylvania. A number of local restaurants offer full German menus, American cuisine, and some other international fares. You have only to drive around the small village, town, or city you are near to find a five-star restaurant.
