About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8 maximum
The cottage is conveniently located just five miles from Knoebel’s Amusement Resort in Elysburg, PA, and seven miles from nearby Danville, PA. State Parks, like R.B Winter (Half-Way Dam), Hickory Run and Rickett's Glen are short drives away. Shikellamy State Park and Marina is minutes away so bring your boat! The Bloomsburg Fairgrounds offer events year-round. Several quality gun clubs, including the Valley Gun and Country Club in Elysburg is also nearby. Golf courses are plentiful and the Buckhorn Mall and surrounding shopping area is close. Historical enthusiasts can explore nearby covered bridges, take a tour in an Anthracite coal mine, visit the historic Jim Thorpe or just enjoy the incredible scenic surroundings.
But you need not get in the car again once you’re there! Brings some old sneakers that you can wear in the creek – find a spot to take a dip, cast your fishing line or catch minnows and crayfish with your kids. It’s a great place for biking! You can hike the local wooded hillsides and huddle around the fire-pit as the evening closes into a crisp night. Sleep to the sound of crickets and rushing water.
The gas-fireplace in the center of the Great-room can be just as enjoyable as the fire-pit outside. A fully equipped kitchen adjacent a large dining area and two living-room spaces brings family members together and still provides room to escape. The Cottage is handicapped accessible with an exterior ramp up to the main level and an easily navigable full-bathroom. There are two half-baths. Even if its drizzling outside you can breath the fresh air and do some grilling on the giant patio on the ground level.
The cottage has three bedrooms a full bath with a low-step shower and two half-baths. One of the half-baths is in the laundry/utility room.
This is rental property provides family vacation accommodations; it cannot be used as an event destination or site for a large gathering.

Our cottage is surrounded by a natural environment - what makes the place fantastic sometimes also make it inconvenient. Insects and animals share the valley with us and sometimes encroach on our space. Aside from infestations, we will do what we can to curtail any nuisance but these elements are not within our control and visitors should be aware of the natural circumstances.
Owner's cancellation policy:
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

About the owner: Three siblings share this great piece of property. Two live locally.
Why the Owner Chose Catawissa, PA, USA:
Our parents bought our cottage early on in their marriage and our father, single-handedly constructed the building that was ruined in the 2011 flood. Our father is gone now too but the memories we made and still make there will always be with us.
