Spacious, with a Few Quirks

  • 3 of 5

Overall, our stay in New Philadelphia was good. We really enjoyed taking our kids to Tuscora Park. As far as the house is concerned, here are a few things inquirers may find useful:

- There is a lot of space, so it is suitable for large parties. It housed our group of 6 adults and 5 children easily.

- As another reviewer wrote, it doesn't seem to be consistently occupied, so we had some issues with mustiness and dustiness.

- No wi-fi or laundry.

- We had a few house maintenance issues, mostly plumbing related.

Owner's Response: Hi Tyler, Thanks for letting me know about the low pressure in the kitchen sink, that faucet has been replaced. Naturally, most guests arrive for the weekend and we close the house up on days it's not being rented. I'm glad you enjoyed the spaciousness and the wooded surroundings. Tuscora Park is a must see ! Best Regards, Mary

Very roomy, clean house. Lots of bedrooms. Excellent outside activities. Firewood very nice.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the stay there very much. Five families lived there comfortably due to many rooms and beds available.

Kitchen had everything available for cooking. We enjoyed cooking and eating. What three days there eating, talking, laughing and enjoying together.

We also liked the camp fire with plenty fire wood available. Outside was large enough for all type of sports and gathering.

Thank the owner!

Wonderful getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle to spend some time together and visit family in the area. This looked perfect online and it was ! Plenty of room, great decor and Mary made us feel like part of her family. We'll book here again...soon.

Beautiful place, will stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend getaway stay at this beautiful lodge. The rooms were very clean and we loved the privacy and quietness of the surrounding woods. We enjoyed sitting on the porch drinking wine and saw lots of wildlife. We will definitely stay again next time we are looking to come to this area!

A Charming, Spacious, Rural, Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

Friends and family in my party enjoyed indoor cooking, outdoor grilling, and lots of board games (provided on site) in this beautiful and spacious rural property. The owner is genuinely invested in the positive experiences of her guests and we appreciated her helpful and timely communication from the time of reservation to the time of our departure. We had considered taking the kids in our party to the park down the street (5 minute drive, but not walkable) because we drove by it and the pool/rides looked great, but we were ultimately so happy to relax in and enjoy one another's company in the home that we went without the park. There's a dollar store just a few minutes away, and a Walmart and Giant Eagle nearby too. Guests are sure to enjoy their stay. Highly recommended!

Lovely, relaxing for a big group!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 12 was celebrating a 50 yr nursing school reunion. Mary (owner) was great at handling our questions and making our stay pleasant both before and during our visit. The property is simply beautiful - set back in the woods. away from the sights and sounds of all but nature - even though it is only minutes from town, if you need anything at all! I cannot speak for anyone who might reserve only one room or two. But for a large group it was perfect to spread out, relax and not bother anyone, as with a normal hotel or B+B! This IS a house in the woods that is not lived in on a daily basis. Therefore, be aware that there MAY be the occasional critter or spider! (All normal!) And there is the minor annoyance of dampness and some mildew smell, especially in the lower level. Overall the house was very clean and well-kept. It's not new or "fancy", but was quaint and decorated, in every nook and cranny,with items in line with the owner's taste. We enjoyed checking everything out! It was perfect for our group and several of our party said they wished we could come back again. Thanks, Mary!
