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.
