About the Property

SOPHRONIA COTTAGE is our very most romantic cottage.

The perfect cottage for an escape from family, friends and responsibility.

It's wonderfully cozy for just the 2 of you !

Sophronia Cotage was Green Valley's very first vacation rental, opening for our guests in the summer of 1996. Decorated and furnished in true cottage style, cozy, fresh and clean. At approx. 500 sq. ft. in size, just right for a romantic escape and an opportunity to experience small cottage living and learn to love its simplicity. This is the perfect cottage for your romantic getaway, with gas fireplace in the bedroom, and hot tub on the bedroom deck. The kitchen is fully furnished and has an electric range w/oven, microwave, coffee-maker, toaster, refrigerator, and a full size washer/dryer. The only thing needed for the kitchen is your food. The full bath has a shower and all bath and kitchen linens are provided. The front porch with its Adirondack chairs is a great place to spend an afternoon watching birds in the feeder, being soothed by a summer shower---or, just doing Nothing !! The perfect escape from a stress-filled, busy world.
It is only a short walk or bike ride to the property 2.5 acre lake.
Please check out our other cottages, too.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I am blessed to be able to share Green Valley and its cottages with our guests. This is a family business and we strive daily to create and maintain a wonderfully unique place and experience for those who chose to spend their time in our cottages. I'm looking forward to helping you plan your stay at Green Valley soon, and am here to answer any questions you may have.

Why the Owner Chose Warfordsburg, PA, USA:
Yes, there are thousands of choice of vacation rental cottages, but at Green Valley, you don't just rent a cottage, you rent a 75 acre property which includes our private 3 acre lake. Our Nov. 6th guests to Sophronia Cottage wrote that they came to Green Valley to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. "We've been many places all over the world and this was Number 1 for peace and relaxation. Thanks so much to this family for creating such a unique and special place" We planned our 10 Year Anniversary a year in advance. Specifically looking for a remote area that was quite and peaceful. We wanted privacy and hopefully a place in the mountains with amazing views. Our true love is camping, hiking and mountain biking along with photography and art. We found everything we wanted in a search for romantic cabins. I wanted to stay as long as possible and I had my heart set on a hot tub. I realized all their Cottages had hot tubs so I decided to go with the smallest cabin on the property. The Sophronia cottage was the perfect size for us! I loved the look from the outside and how welcoming is was right away. We spent most of our time hiking & biking and our nights in the hot tub looking at the stars. We have so many amazing photos and videos of our visit that we love. We even captured the sounds of the woods, if we could have only bottled that smell!! The cottage itself was so easy to care for that I wish I could downsize my house! I could easily do laundry while cooking at the same time without having to walk away from either. I loved the shower and the water pressure is so good that I just have to comment on it. The bedroom with the fireplace and deck right off it with the hot tub is just too perfect. I loved the walk in closet and high ceilings with little nook above the closet. Everything had such a unique and personal touch to it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sophronia sits along Bear Creek and has a beautifully treed front lawn with bonfire area, charcoal grill and picnic table. Two bicycles await your enjoyment. The lake at Green Valley is stocked with Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, Trout, and provides many opportunities for outdoor fun. Row boating, fishing, relaxing on the dock, or strolling in the moonlight, make the lake one of our guests favorite locations! We also have several clearly marked hiking trails that take you beneath tall white pines, along Bear Creek, or through acres of white oak forest. Another great thing about Green Valley is our location. We are only 3hrs from Pittsburgh, 2 hrs from D.C./Balti. area, 2 hrs. from Harrisburg, Pa., 5 hrs. from New York City, 4 hrs. from Philadelphia, Pa., 4 hrs. from Richmond, Va., and though our cottages are secluded, everything is nearby!
