A large family room with a jukebox is located on the lower level. An additional bedroom, bath, and laundry room are just a few steps away.

Upstairs bedrooms with hall bathroom easily sleep eight with one master bedroom with bath. The third floor has one dorm room with 6 single beds, a bathroom and a large sitting room with a very popular round bed.

This is the perfect home for your family vacation, a small-group retreat or a private get-away for several couples.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Everyone enjoyed it! Lot's of amenities. Loads of cooking utensils, plates, sheets, towels, games, books, juke box, even an air pump for bicycles and balls! Loved the deck and humming birds!!! Great location, swimming pool was beautiful and Falls were extraordinary. My son really liked visiting the stables and watching the horses. Reasonably priced. Older home but well maintained and has all the new technology, appliances, grill, wifi, cable etc.. Thank you Elaine. John

A charming cottage that was warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage so that we would have accommodations for a family wedding that we attended in the area. The cottage was accurately described. It was clean on arrival, the sheets and towels were plentiful and smelled fresh and clean.

The kitchen had every item you would ever need to cook and entertain, plus numerous

spices, tea, coffee, paper towels, etc. Well stocked. We didn't have the best weather, but we still enjoyed the lovely veranda. Very restful and peaceful. We also explored some hiking trails, all within walking distance. All in all, a wonderful experience.

The house grows on you

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 11 adults and 7 kids who now have some good memories staying at this place. The house is close to 100 years old but that is what makes it different from the others we have been too. Lot of collectibles in the house which I am sure the owner is very proud of. The amenities in the community are really great. Pool, Tennis and also hike to the waterfall which is literally 10 minute hike from the swimming pool parking lot. Within the house, it has good living space and the owner had provided ample toiletries and towels.

Elaine was very co-operative and responding to every questions we had. She provided ton of information prior to our visit.

All in all, we all loved the place. Dont keep very high expectations when you book or enter. Let the house work its magic on you .. you will leave happy.

Shout out to Elaine for being a good host.

Beautiful warm &cozy for such a Large home!

  • 4 of 5

Can't complain about the heat! We had more than enough room and privacy for everyone. Lovely home, we were there at the coldest time yet for PA and I only had minor issues that we were able to work around that I addressed with the humble homeowner, np. Only major issue was the hot water, but we also had a Large group. Can't wait to come back when it's warmer. Thank you for renting your awesome home!
