We rented the cottage because it was close to Penn State, for our grandson’s commencement ceremony.
We enjoyed our stay, the setting was lovely, the cottage was clean, well equipped and nicely furnished.
Beautiful but there were some issues
First of all the house & property is amazingly beautiful and was definitely relaxing. The owner responded fast & was friendly. There were a few issues: the toilet downstairs very easily clogged up twice, the a/c seamed to blow cold but it was not enough to cool the house down especially upstairs (thankfully we brought an extra fan with us, which was definitely needed), and the rugs were full of dust and caused us to sneeze a lot (my eldest daughter had it especially bad as she is sensitive to dust), my two year old son was playing around the rug and has to have his hands washed because of how dirty he was. The water smelled very strongly like sulfur (egg smell) when showering, though that is noted in the book upon check in. We couldn't find brooms to sweep the floors, and didn't realize the sheets and towels were in the dressers until a day after checking in. Overall we had a good time, but because of the issues (which could be easy fixes), I have to rate it fairly.
Side note: I do want to stress to others to make sure to check several times for ticks when coming in from outside as we checked once with our two year old & immediately went to shower where one had latched to his belly during that very short time.
Please be sure to read the additional important information located in the NOTES section under the RATES tab. In the NOTES section you'll see the following: "Please bring your own towels and linens; JC’s Lodge has 2 full & 2 twin beds. Best also to bring water for drinking & the Keurig. Lodge is on a well and because of the low water table the well water does have an interesting taste that may alter your expectation from whatever k-cup you use."
Smoking is not permitted inside JC’s Lodge. Please bring your own towels and linens; JC’s Lodge has 2 full & 2 twin beds. Best also to bring water for drinking & the Keurig. Lodge is on a well and because of the low water table the well water does have an interesting taste that may alter your expectation from whatever k-cup you use. The water will need to be turned on; instructions are provided (please turn off again when leaving). Just leave the trash. There's a guest info packet on the table as soon as you enter. Owner will provide code for the key lock box before your arrival date. If using mapping software to navigate to the Lodge, MapQuest shows the left turnoff onto the driveway for 355 Bush Hollow Rd at the correct point; Google maps does not; Gmaps shows the location about 200 yds too soon on Bush Hollow Rd (before the correct turnoff). We do not know how accurate Garmin or TomTom is. If you get to / pass the Brookside Wesleyan church on your left you’ve gone too far.
