Pleasant relaxation and hiking

  • 5 of 5

The mountain cottage was exactly as it was described and we were very satisfied. The cabin was clean and cozy. Among the highlights of the cabin were its proximity to Waynesboro, PA; the rocking chairs under a ceiling fan on the front porch; the proximity to the wonderful Pen-Mar Park with the access to Appalachian Trail; and the available board games. We did choose to drive to Pen-Mar to hike even though their is walking access to the Appalachian Trail because the road to trail was narrow for walking. We had a lovely visit with family and the teenagers were able to set aside electronics and sink into 3 days of restful family time, augmented by the board games. We will definitely return when visiting in the area! Thank you!

We have been here for short weekend stays and for stays as long as 3 weeks. Hands down our favorite getaway for business travel in the area or for relaxation.

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Rich & Christie make you feel right at home....The cottage was neat & clean and plenty spacious for two people....Beautiful scenery...

Rich had just returned home from having a serious operation...We had a little trouble getting on the internet so we called to see if he could give us directions how to log in on the phone but he insisted on walking over to do it personally.....Tried to talk him out of it but he came anyhow....What a great guy.....We will be going there in the future and will definitely call for availability.....If you stay there, go to Rocky's Italian restaurant about 10 minutes away....You won't regret it..

Perfect Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. It was very clean and neat. The furniture and decorations were comfortable. I enjoyed a lovely bath and there were rockers on the porch. The window air conditioner worked well to cool the entire house. The kitchen was well stocked with kitchen tools and they left breakfast foods. It was a bit difficult to find the correct driveway from the road and the parking is a bit tight for more than one vehicle. Thank you!

Owner's Response: So glad you were comfortable during your get-away at the cottage. The end of the drive is the current project on the drawing board and should be much more noticeable within a few weeks.
