Why Burt Squires chose Newville
We have worked really hard to make The Forest House nice, clean, fun and most of all affordable. Folks tell us that we should be charging more—but, quite frankly, we are tired of being priced out of vacation homes ourselves. In return, we ask folks to take care of the place and help keep the magic alive. Have a great stay. The Forest House @ Lake Warren Estates

Slow on the road leading to the cabin!! The road is winding and there are often people walking.

A relaxation get away
Rustic beauty. Plenty of living space. In short, we didn't want to leave.
Perfect holiday getaway
Best by far of all the places we've rented. The forest house was beautiful! It had every amenity we look for in a cabin. So cozy and rustic but very modern at the same time. The location was perfect, secluded and private but not too far from stores or restaurants. One of our must haves for a cabin is a real wood burning fireplace, (not gas or electric), and this one was absolutely beautiful, with a plentiful supply of firewood, which came in handy when we lost power for about 12 hrs total during our trip, due to a wind storm. But everything turned out fine after that, and we were able to cook a wonderful thanksgiving dinner for the two of us. I can't say enough about how perfect this cabin was in every way. The owners do a fabulous job making sure you have everything you might need, not to mention how clean and tidy the place was, and the wine, what a nice touch to make you feel welcome . Again, best rental ever!
Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful review! We are almost finished with the basement which will really transform the cabin with added space and amenities.
What A Gem !
Simply fantastic. Clean, beautiful home. Basement well underway to being finished - this will make this location even more special ! Very private. Plenty of firewood to burn both inside or out at the fire pit. We will be going back for sure ! Thank you for everything, Burt !
Fabulous Forest House
This was our second time in the cozy Forest House and we enjoyed it even more. The owner put in a great new sectional sofa in the living room and the basement is almost finished - a wonderful family room with a gigantic flat-screen television. It should be sensational in the summer months. We had a grand stay and look forward to coming back again soon!
We had a wonderful stay at this amazing cabin! Very, very clean, completely stocked and the manager was incredibly kind. Will be book again soon!
Great Place to Relax!
Once again, we had a fabulous time staying in the cabin and exploring the surrounding area in Newville, Carlisle, Pine Grove Furnace and of course Gettysburg!.. Burt is very easy to work with and is very responsive quickly. Love coming here and will be back in 2020. Mac & Diane - Northern Virginia
