About the property

4 Star Beautifully Renovated Country House - 5 bedrooms 2 bathrooms

The Country House is a newly renovated 2400 sq ft., 100 year old farmhouse with 5 beautifully appointed bedrooms and 2 large comfortable living spaces. The house sits on a beautiful 40 acre setting located just 5 minutes from downtown Mansfield, PA and less than 15 minutes from Historic Wellsboro, PA. The Country House has beautiful views of protected wetlands where there are migrating Canadian Geese, thousands of croaking peepers, wild turkeys, deer and black bear. Sitting on the front porch, looking at the tranquil setting will feel like days gone by. There are many places to wonder and explore on the estate….

The Carriage House is located on an estate where there are 2 homes located near each other which can both be reserved to accommodate large groups comfortably. The tranquil setting is wonderful for children…ideal for sitting around the campfire in Adirondack style seating, star gazing, roasting marshmallows, catching lightening bugs, grilling out, picnic lunches and enjoying time with family and friends while having all the wonderful things to do in Tioga County in your back yard. The Estate is a perfect location for a large family get-a-way, a reunion or a corporate retreat when you rent both homes for a total of 9 bedrooms.

Small pets will be considered for an additional cleaning fee of $50. Please contact us to make the request.

About David and Rachel Tews

Rachel and David Tews - Proprietors

We opened our home as a vacation rental in 2009. We moved to another home and decided to turn it into a vacation rental rather than sell the property. My husband and I both own other businesses in downtown Wellsboro, PA. I am the owner of The Fifth Season, a women's boutique and home furnishings store. (Stop by and visit the store, especially if you love the design style and decor in the homes.) My husband is a partner in a telecommunications company called Indigo Wireless. We are very active in our community and are often found working on one of our many charity or philanthropic ventures.We are the proud parents of 4 children. 2 older boys one who lives in Scottsbluff NE and one who will soon be graduating from University of Pittsburgh. We have 2 young girls, one who is 4 and one who is 7 who love attending Montessori and doing dance and gymnastics and performing in shows.

David and Rachel Tews purchased this house in 1997

Why David and Rachel Tews chose Mansfield

My husband purchased this property in 1997 and raised his 2 older sons here. He moved to the area to build a cellular system in the area. They were animal lovers and had a Noah's ark of rescued animals living on the property which is perfectly conducive to many animals with the large open pastures and nostalgic renovated red roofed barn. There are still 2 donkeys that live on the property. (called Peter and Buckwheat) When my husband and I met in 2006 we decided we needed to live in Wellsboro to be closer to our other businesses. Rather than sell the home we decided to turn it into a vacation rental and share the beautiful setting with others.

What makes this house unique

Our property is a beautiful 40 acres that sits across from a protected wetland. It is a very peaceful oasis to visit when you are looking to get-a- way from the fast paced life of the city and suburbs. If you love a beautifully decorated home with all the modern amenities this is the home for you. The homes are decorated in the lovely 'Fifth Season' style.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely beautiful!!! Recently we stayed in the Country House while visiting family in the NY area. My family decided to join us as well and all 11 of us stayed comfortably in the house with plenty of room to sleep, relax and enjoy each others company. The house is absolutely beautiful, the beds were very comfortable and we all enjoyed as much time as we could outside whether it be running through the huge yard with our kids, grilling meals or roasting marshmallows on the fire. My children loved visiting the donkeys to which they named hee-haw and Annabelle :) We will definitely be staying here in the future when we visit our family in NY. Rachel and Dave were fantastic in making sure we felt at home!

Great property, great owners

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. Roomy, peaceful, plenty of linens, towels, soap, shampoo, etc... The owners respond to problems very quickly and are very friendly. We had an issue logging into the wireless internet and, within an hour, they had a tech out at the house working on the problem. The location is much closer to shopping and town that I imagined it would be but still secluded and peaceful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend this property.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay for our family of five!

Home is cozy and spacious. Very clean and nicely decorated. The views are all around you!

All you need to bring is your own food.

Kitchen has everything you'll need if you like to prepare meals.

We enjoyed playing frisbee on the back lawn, watching the horses and donkey around the back barn. We enjoyed taking a morning stroll down the gravel lane for fresh blueberries for our pancakes. We sipped our morning coffee on the front porch while listening to the birds and frogs and watching bunnies hop across the pathway.

We went for an energizing hike around the PA Grand Canyon. We even took our dog!!

We treated ourselves to ice cream in downtown Mansfield.

We Bbqed and listened to ghost stories around the camp fire!

Wish we stayed longer,

We will definitely be back next year!!

Thank you Rachel & David for a memorable stay!
