Here are just a few comments left by guests in our guest book:
"What a lovely place to call home during our visit to four state parks - MK Goddard, Pymatuming, Erie Bluffs and Presque Isle. We enjoyed all things about your beautiful property. The trails are great but I wish I had brought my wildflower and bird identification books. We saw wild turkey, rabbits and lots of song birds (possibly an oriole?) In the evening hours we were serenaded by katydids, crickets and an occasional owl hoot! Tim and Erin you are good stewards to this land. Peace to you both."
Guests from New York

About Tim Geibel
We've made a home in Crawford County and have wanted to find a way to help promote and share all the beauty of the region with our friends and family. This cottage is our first step. Bought as an old farm house in 2013, we've done a pretty big remodel of the house and the grounds to help showcase Crawford County. Come stay for awhile and you might just want to call our region home!
Tim Geibel purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Tim Geibel chose Venango
Quite country setting that is minutes from everything! Edinboro University, Allegheny College, 3 golf courses, a great Micro-brew, nearby access to French Creek and State game we say more! You can spend the same amount of money for a hotel and get a room with a view of the parking lot or you can stay with us and have the privacy of a beautiful country setting just minutes from wherever you need to be!
What makes this Cottage unique
Full access to 3+ acres of property to enjoy. Outside fireplace, walking trails, flower gardens, pumpkin patch and more!

Was very pleased with our stay
My husband and I rented this property for three nights. We only stayed at this cottage for One night though because we liked the privacy of the other cottage on this property better. After we stayed at this one for one night I contacted Tim and he was so gracious about letting us switch. He even went out of his way to clean the cottage from the previous renters immediately so that we could move our things in the next day. He responded to us immediately and kept in contact with us throughout the day to make sure we were pleased. Which we definitely were. It exceeded our expectations. We also accidentally locked ourselves out of the cottage so he came almost immediately to let us in. He provided GREAT customer service. The cottage is very nice inside and well worth the cost and in a very nice location. The only downfall would be that both cottages have to share one gas grill and the beautiful fire pit by the field that is shown in the listing.
It was overall a pleasant stay and nice get away. We loved the trails and our dog was happy as well.
Cozy cottage complete with nature's beauty
Was visiting the area for a wedding. The cottage was the perfect solution for us. Clean, comfortable and convenient. We stayed in this cottage while other family members stayed in other cabin located on the property. We were able to be one evening spent by the fire-pit. Thanks for hospitality. J Graham from NC
The property was just what we were looking for! Very peaceful & beautiful, especially in the fall!
My boyfriend and I were looking for a weekend getaway for our anniversary and I came across this cottage that was the perfect size for just the two of us. However, it could probably house a party of four.
We arrived pretty late and, considering it was dark, we had a little trouble locating exactly where it was because it sits off of the road a little bit but with the help of some friendly neighbors, we found it in no time!
The inside is absolutely beautiful and the decor suits it well. It's equipped with just about everything you could imagine that you would need including things that you may not think to bring that come in handy!
The cottage was very, very clean upon our arrival which was one of my main concerns before we arrived so I was very impressed. It has a very welcoming atmosphere, as well. The inside is very modern but it isn't so modern that it's uncomfortable. It was just perfect for us.
Tim was very helpful and very prompt with responding to any of our questions and he was very kind to us. He gave us our space to enjoy ourselves which I appreciated a lot.
We took a trip to Niagara Falls the day we checked out which is about 2.5 hours away from the cottage which was beautiful and is a nice day trip if you're looking for something to do to take up a day of your stay.
Overall, our experience was absolutely wonderful and I would go back in a heartbeat. The scenery and the cottage go hand in hand and both compliment each other well! It's a very cozy and relaxing place to go to take a load off. We were more than impressed!
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. The cottage was very well stocked with just about everything one could ask for. I especially enjoyed the trails through the meadow, as my dogs.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our last minute trip away for the weekend. The paths and fire pit were wonderful and our dogs really loved running around them with us. A wonderful experience and would definitely stay again!
Also...2 breweries and a meadery within 15 minutes was perfect! Lots to do in the area.
