Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Welcome to the Covered Bridge Cottage, a charming getaway nestled in the woods on the bank of the Cocalico Creek. During its colorful past the cottage operated as a prohibition speakeasy and a fisherman's cottage. Today it’s a quaint abode perfect for a romantic getaway or quiet weekend with friends. Marrying the beauty of the past with a simple, modern style, this century-old home includes unique details like wood floors, peaked ceilings and exposed peg and beam construction. We invite you to cozy-up and make yourself comfortable by the gas fireplace in the living room. Or take in the view of the historic Wenger’s Mill Covered Bridge from the sunlit dining porch. Enjoy a relaxing dip in the secluded outdoor hot tub. Sit on the porch swing and listen to the songbirds while admiring the beauty of the surrounding Amish farmland. Or kick up your feet by the creekside fire pit.

Additionally, we encourage you to sample the variety of unforgettable experiences that Lancaster County has to offer. Whether you prefer exploring the rich history of the Amish or the fresh, contemporary vibes of Lancaster City, our area has something for everyone. From delicious eats to endless shopping venues, invigorating hiking trails to art museums, and buggy rides to amusement parks, the opportunities for a memorable trip are endless. We’re located 35 minutes from Hershey, a little over an hour from Philadephia, an hour and a half from Baltimore and Gettysburg, and just over 2 hours from New York City and Atlantic City.

Gorgeous house in a majestic setting.

  • 5 of 5

The house was way more beautiful than we expected. It truly had everything and was perfect in size. It is comfortable in every way and every detail is considered in the decorating. Very welcoming and easy with beautiful property and very close to the covered bridge.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved this rental! Everything from crossing the covered bridge to enter into the cottage & to the little touches that are provided. It was also very clean and updated with modern amenities. The location was perfect and the area also provided a nice opportunity to walk by some beautiful Amish farms.

Would love to go back and rent this cottage again in the near future!

Beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated and clean!

  • 4 of 5

We only found a couple things that may need attention! The ants were really bad in the kitchen even though it was very clean. There were no chairs for the fire pit luckily we had our own. The hot tub was wonderful and very clean! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at our cottage and leaving feedback! I apologize about the ants. We have put some ant traps out since. Also, we have beautiful new adirondack chairs around the fireplace! I hope you will return sometime to enjoy them! 😁�

Perfect Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting. While it rained during most of our visit, we enjoyed a cozy time indoors. The home is furnished so nicely with thoughtful details and very well-equipped in the kitchen. Highly recommend this getaway!

Calming, quiet

  • 5 of 5

We came to see the covered bridges, witness the Amish in their daily endeavors, and relax in the quiet country. We were not disappointed. The cottage has been recently renovated in keeping with the simple life of Lancaster County. The beds were oolala comfotable. You are truly in the country here. You cross a covered bridge and immediately you are "home." The birds sing to you and the squirrels show off their acrobatic skills. Plus, the sightseeing and shopping is close. Enjoy the sights of the country as you drive.
