About the Property
An upscale 2-queen BR, 2-BA cottage w/fireplace and large deck near Yough Lake
Are you looking for something a bit more plush than the ordinary vacation rental? Do you crave a peaceful and romantic retreat? You have found it in Fernwalk, an upscale, 2-bedroom, 2-bath house that has been fully renovated and outfitted with your comfort and relaxation in mind. It is a tasteful blend of 1948, mission, prairie, and Zen nuances, fully stocked with every necessity and modern convenience one might desire. Fernwalk is designed to offer a romantic and peaceful haven for adults and as such is in no manner childproof, however, we do welcome non-mobile infants and well-behaved older children.
Our lavishly equipped chef's kitchen with granite counters is a delight in which to create a gourmet feast, or choose to relax outdoors on the large deck and barbecue your perfect filet. There are restaurants ranging from casual to 5-star, 5-diamond (one of only 27 worldwide) within an easy and scenic drive of Fernwalk should you choose not to cook.
The open concept living and dining room host high quality local Amish furniture, as well as a comfy leather couch, vintage wooden rockers, and remote controlled gas-log fireplace. Enjoy the convenience of Wifi, a flat screen TV and entertainment center, an iPod dock, and in-house movies, music and more.
The two spacious bedrooms each offer high quality queen beds with luxury bedding, ceiling fans, sound machines, and tastefully functional furnishings. The Mountain Room has an en-suite bath with a roomy, tiled shower, and Craftsman inspired, granite topped vanity. The Meadow Room is conveniently located next to the spacious hall bath, which has a decorator-tiled soaker tub/shower unit. Both baths offer the warmth and comfort of heated tile floors.
For parties of 5 or 6 guests, we offer quality Aerobeds and bedding which may be set up in the bedrooms or, for added privacy, in the sunroom.
Although not handicap accessible, once inside, the house is all on one-level. There are several steps required to enter Fernwalk and the washer and dryer, if needed, are in the basement. There is one walk-in shower with a small curb and one very deep tub for your luxurious bath. Neither have hand rails, but a shower chair is available to be used at your discretion. Alternately, Hartzell House B & B has a fully accessible 1st floor suite designed to accommodate guests with special needs; reserve well in advance to ensure availability.
Positively NO smoking, and sorry, no pets. Fernwalk is a haven for those who suffer from allergies or who prefer low VOC, dander-free and low to no toxin exposure. We use natural cleaning products and even chose a certified organic USA-made carpet in the living room.
This luxury cottage typically rents for $259 /weekday and $289 / weekend days for up to 4 persons, with an additional, charge of $15 per person, per day, up to a maximum occupancy total of 6. Extended stays benefit from terrific savings: 5-6 day booking = $150 discount, 7-9 day booking = $300 discount, and 10+ day booking = $500 discount. And, unlike most Vacation Rental properties, Fernwalk Cottage has no hidden cleaning fees! Rates are for 4-people and the maximum occupancy for Fernwalk cottage is 6. If you have any questions or special needs, please call. We do our best to accommodate.
After your day exploring the area grill up a perfect filet and relax on the large deck. Or, get out your book and enjoy one of the rockers on the porch off the sunroom while waiting for the moon to rise. After dark, the comfy couch and gas-log fireplace will provide a secure, relaxing, comfy and casually luxurious atmosphere. A flat screen TV and entertainment center is there for movies, sports, music and more. There are plenty of local dining and attraction resources available for you at Fernwalk, plus the computer is always at your fingertips.
Fernwalk is a cinch to find; it is less than a ¼ mile off Route #40, the National Road and only 6 miles from I-68. It's in a quiet little village on the old original pike... it’s like going back in time! Come… kick off your shoes and relax and consider Fernwalk your home away from home.
Fernwalk is managed by the Hartzell House B & B where an optional 5-star breakfast can be reserved when booking. Treat yourself to at least one fabulous breakfast while you are visiting! It's only a one-minute walk to first class hospitality.
On occasion, there may be a reservation pending, but not showing on the calendar. We hope to hear from you! When you call our manager, please say, “I saw your listing on VRBO.” Thank you for visiting the Fernwalk listing and enjoy your trip wherever you stay!
