Private, cozy and relaxing. A lovely environment.
We felt very much at home. It was clear that a lot of time and effort was put into details that would make our stay pleasant. There was easy access to linens. The kitchen was well equipped. The view of town was wonderful. I would definitely hope to make a habit of coming back repeatedly.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and would like to thank you for this review and the lovely note you left in our guest book. We hope you visit again soon!
Julee was very responsive to our needs. She's really committed to making this place a truly comfortable retreat. Plans are already being made to stay here again! THANKS Julee!
home away from home
This is a wonderful getaway. We came back for a reunion and were delighted to find The Cottage. High on a hill overlooking the town, beautiful views and peaceful location. We were lucky to also do the Historic Homes Event. A must to learn the history of this amazing town.
The Cottage has everything you'd need. It was so clean and beautiful furniture. Laundry facility with storage room; kitchen has extra spices and coffee to tide you over until you shop. Dishes, pans, even wine glasses! Beds are very comfortable. We are so glad we found this place. The owner is very helpful if you need anything.
We are already making plans to come back.
Cozy and Quiet
After a long day of driving around exploring the area, hiking, searching for and viewing elk, The Cottage was a nice welcoming place to settle in for the evening. It was clean, cozy and very quiet. I would highly recommend this place to anyone searching for a peaceful getaway. I would also recommend dining at Jordan's Bar and Grill in downtown Ridgeway for a delicious and very reasonably priced meal.
Stunning views - lovely design - impeccably clean
We chose The Cottage as our "home away from home" while visiting Ridgway for a family wedding weekend. With three youngsters, it's much easier for us to stay in furnished apartments or homes versus hotel rooms for ease of prepping our own meals and having separate sleeping quarters. The reviews online and photos contributed to our selection...and the cottage did not disappoint! I was so pleased with all of my interactions with the owner - so professional, courteous, and helpful. She provided many ideas for sightseeing with our three small children. When we arrived at The Cottage, we were impressed with the view of the valley, the lovely decorative details in the home, the cleanliness, and the fact that every possible need was met in the furnishings. The owner even provided ingredients for smores! We spent a very relaxing Mother's Day in the yard, resting in the comfortable outdoor chairs and enjoying the beautiful, sunny weather. Beds were luxurious and very comfortable. Very spacious shower/bath. Upstairs bedroom was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. Even with unseasonably high temperatures outside, the cottage was very comfortable indoors. Kitchen had every possible utensil, dish, and supply we could have needed. Brand new appliances were beautiful and worked perfectly. I can't recommend this property enough! We had a WONDERFUL visit and look forward to visiting again!!!
Thank you for the raving review and especially for your family's service to our country! It was a privilege to have you stay with us. We strive to keep everything clean and comfortable for our guests and it's so nice to hear that our efforts are appreciated. Please come back again soon!
A Great Romantic Winter Get-Away
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. The house was absolutely beautiful and comforting. We toured the town and went to Benezette to see the elk during the day. It snowed the whole time we were there and at night we sat at the window in the living room watching the snow fall. We had such a wonderful time that we are hoping to make this our spot to celebrate our anniversary every year. And we may even be back during the summer with the kids as I have no doubt they would enjoy it also!
Happy Anniversary and thank you for your 5-star review! I am so glad you enjoyed your time at The Cottage and look forward to your return with your children. It certainly was a winter wonderland in Ridgway during your stay. The view when the snow falls reminds me of looking into a snow globe:)
Located at the end of a very private road, The Cottage offers a bird's eye view of the Clarion River and the historical town of Ridgway. Just steps outside the door is access to hunting, hiking, cross-country skiing, and sledding. The Clarion-Little Toby Rail Trail, the Clarion River, canoe/kayak/cross-country ski rental, and downtown Ridgway are only a few blocks away. A very scenic 25 minute drive will bring you to elk viewing country and the town of Benezette.
