Our little cottage is secluded and amazingly quiet. Overlooking our pond and surrounded by woods, it is beautiful year round. Enjoy the Hot Tub, Kayak, swim, or light up the fire pit. A separate bedroom and a kitchen/common room fully equipped. Solar powered. Huge deck, miles of trails, tree house, and many unique features!
You get our 450 sq ft. cottage, and huge 10' deck, all to your self. There is a separate bedroom, and bathroom, along with the main room. With a full kitchen (stove, oven, grill, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher) it is easy to bring your own food and prepare it here. We have a full compliment of dishes, silverware, and utensils, along with lots of condiments. What ever you would find in your own kitchen.
The bedroom has a queen sized bed, the loft has two singles, and the bench in the main room becomes a bed when the bolster is removed. In addition we have a blow up queen, and two blow up singles. We can actually sleep 9 but that would be very crowded. 4 is comfortable, 6 is tight.
Wifi, including Netflix.
Please be aware that this is a cabin in the woods. If you love nature, this is your place.
When you stay, you get the cottage to yourself, you also have the use of the hot tub, pond and kayaks. We have 10 miles of trails through our woods and you are welcome to hike through them. On our ridge in the woods we have erected a wonderful tree house. You are welcome to visit and spend time "Forest Bathing". It is a wonderful place to relax and get close to nature.
We ask that you call or text before you arrive (when you get to Breezewood or Hancock) so that we can greet you at the bike shop take you down to the cottage which is a 1/4 mile further, and show you around, we live on the property and are always available via texting or phone in our cottage for any questions. We want to give our guests as much privacy as possible, and our phones contact us directly to deal with any issue. We do live on the property and drive by the cottage on our way to our bike shop where we work occasionally, We know that people want as much privacy as possible and we respect that. On the other hand Mason loves people and interacts easily, if you want interaction, he will be there.
Breakfast is your choice of pastries, bagels, English muffins, cereal, or you can prepare our eggs fresh from our pasture raised chickens (best you will ever have). We will also provide fruit and vegetables in season from our orchard and garden.
You don't need to bring water (please!), ours is excellent, so much better than bottled, don't bring eggs, we will give you a dozen of the best eggs you will ever have, (If you are here a week we will cover you).
We are 6 miles from the closest restaurant, and 12 or 18 miles from the ones we recommend. If you are coming on the PA Turnpike from the east, Breezewood has no grocery stores, you must bring food before you get there, if you are coming from the west, Bedford and Everett have several stores, if you are coming on I-70 from the east, stop in Hancock, from I-68 from the west, stop in Cumberland. Please keep this in mind, but we are very convenient if you bring your own food.
Because of our location with a pond and forest, a septic system wasn't possible. So we have a Hi-Tech, sanitary, composting toilet. It is easy to use, and we take care of everything. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to pass on our place.
Our media center allows you to bring your own music and games. You can listen inside and outside on our deck.
We now have internet and WiFi at the cottage. There is Netflix! We have 100+ movies, mostly on BluRay.
