About William and Marianne Roberts

My wife and I grew up coming to The Mount Gretna Lake in the summer time. My uncle owned a summer home which I would visit and my Grand Parents always wanted a summer home here but never made it happen. When the opportunity to buy our cottage presented itself we moved on it and have never regretted our decision.

William and Marianne Roberts purchased this cottage in 1998

Why William and Marianne Roberts chose Dutch Country

Very Cute romantic cottage in the woods. Very close to all the activity in Mount Gretna. Theater-Playhouse, Lake, Jigger Shop, Hideaway, Gift Shop, Playground Basketball Court

What makes this cottage unique

Cottage sits high above the street and reminds you of a very nice tree house. Cottage was built in the 1890s and still holds that original romantic charm.

Art show weekend in the tree house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the tree house during art show weekend. The cottage is cute and very colorful; the perfect compliment to the art weekend theme. The cottage is small, but set up nicely. It was perfect for my family of four. Thanks for the nice weekend.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were not satisfied with our cottage. I checked the cottage a couple of days after your checkin date. I also found a few hairs in the bathtub that our cleaning service obviously missed. Other that that the cottage was pristine. I believe that you decided not to stay for other reasons like the cottage was not in close proximity to attractions you wanted to visit. Most people who stay in Mount Gretna are there for the unique attractions this community has to offer. If you want to visit Strasburg RR or Gettysburg they are 25 and 60 miles away. I have experienced that no matter how nice a property there will always be someone who is not satisfied. Sorry you were disappointed

Perfect cottage for a family of 3-4.

  • 3 of 5

This cottage fit our family of four perfectly. One child slept on the sleeping porch. The shabby chic decor, the comfortable beds, and stocked kitchen made our stay lovely. The porch is large and fit 14 of our family for a potluck dinner. It would be nice to have more light over the kitchen table. There is a chandelier but no way to turn it on. The rug on the 2nd floor is worn and although the kitchen and refrigerator were clean, the house was a bit dusty.

Owner's Response: Hi thanks for your review. The light over the dining room table works but you need to turn on the switch that is located on the side of the staircase. I had left you a voice mail about the location of the switch which maybe you did not receive. I will agree that the carpet upstairs is definately worn and should be replaced. We try to keep the cottage very clean but with multiple renters and a cleaning service apparently they did not do the best job dusting. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and we will try and use your comments to improve. Thanks

Everything I thought it would be and more!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing long weekend at this cottage! It was in a very small quite mountain town and so much to do was within walking distance. We ate at a couple different restaurants, played mini golf, hung out by the lake and most importantly got to relax! We unplugged from the internet and tv, it was perfect! I strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing getaway, there's also a lot for kids to do and would make for a nice family trip as well. We will most definitely be going back!
