About the property

3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, flowing layout surrounded by nature

Pequea Cottage

Private woodland get-away adjacent to Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve. Listen to the water all around you and relax. Or hike the Susquehanna River hills – 40 miles of trails alone in the PPL Holtwood Environmental Preserve, or five miles to the public boat launch with a perfect eight mile lake for fishing, kayaking or water skiing.

Relax in this newly updated cottage, a cozy relaxing living room with all the comforts included; flat screen TV’s in both the living room and master bedroom. Stero with speakers outside too. Or on those cool evenings warm-up beside the coal stove. Fully equipped kitchen; side by side ref., dishwasher, microwave, blender, all the conveniences. Master bed room has beautiful views of the outdoors while relaxing in your queen size bed. The 2nd bedroom has a little twist to it with the full size bed elevated in a birds nest loft. WiFi – if you need to stay in touch or escape into a private office area with a great view to watch the birds. Modern bathroom and a full size washer and dryer.

“Living Outside” on the 1,200 square foot natural flagstone patio highlighted by your own spring feed pond. Enjoy a bonfire while sitting on Adirondack chairs and listening to the flowing stream. Or maybe you might enjoy relaxing on the hammock watching the bird feeders and hearing Tucquan Glen in the background. As someone cooks on the gas grill or enjoy a second dinning area.

Why Brian Ament chose Pequea

I chose to purchase this property because of the location, then I created a masterpiece of a home, that fits into the surroundings.

What makes this house unique

The property intreged me and let my imagination run wild. With its surreal surroundings, the sounds of water in the background all while being secluded in a woodland environment. This property is an extremely rare find!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

A couple of my friends rented this home for a weekend away we do every winter. The home and property were great! The home was private and in immaculate condition! Everything we could have needed was there including games, kitchen items and towels. Very open living room/dining room area with great television, sound system and even Wii! The fire pit area was great and great to hang out at during the day and evening! The owner was a pleasure to communicate with and very fast to respond. He even had someone come and shovel in the morning as we had a little snow during our trip. We had a great time and I would highly recommend this property!

I almost hate to leave this review because I would like to keep it quiet and all to myself. This place is the perfect getaway for some peace and quiet. The house was kept in perfect condition, and has so many outdoor seating options. I can not recommend it enough! I would stay here again, and again.

Car: necessary

The property is setup to be outdoors, located adjacent to Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve. Which is considered one of Lancaster counties natural gems.

You are located within minutes of plenty of great places to hike. Such as Kelly's Run, Reed Run, Shenks Ferry, Pinnacle Overlook, Muddy Run Park, Susquehanna State Park, Lock 12 and 15, Safe Harbor Park, Pequea Creek and the Rails to trails system.

Located within half an hour of Lancaster city, to enjoy many galleries and dining options.

The outlets Rockvale outlets and Tanger are also half hour drive.

Great place to see the Amish, as they are neighbors or take a tour of the Amish Village

If you like to go antiquing their are many places in near by Columbia
