About Garry Dreese

I'm a local Real Estate Manager and GM of Front Street Motors Of Sunbury.

Garry Dreese purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Garry Dreese chose Mifflinburg

I just bought this property and remodeled it. I wanted to be close to the creek.

What makes this cottage unique

Managing 2 companies is demanding and takes a lot of time away from my family. That's why we love staying at this cottage. Its great place to gather my thoughts, fish with the kids, or just chatting with my wife around the fire pit.

Private Peaceful Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our relaxing stay at the cottage with our 3 dogs. We were all very comfortable, loved the hot tub, screened in porch, and sounds of the creek. The backside of the property was spacious for our dogs, but be careful of the front yard if you have a wandering kid or pet.. not far from the road. The property is very nice and private, there is a public area on one side but not too close. Very nice creek with sidewalk... the dogs loved walking back n forth on it. Would love to go back to enjoy the spring/summer activities. Thanks Garry and Mike for a wonderful stay!

Comfortable and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I booked this place on a whim based on the pictures and reviews here for a little “getaway” and we were not disappointed. It exceeded our expectations in terms of the accommodations, location, privacy, cleanliness and we felt very taken care of! The staff who we dealt with were very friendly and accommodating! We loved the feeling of being in nature yet not to far away from the town if we needed anything. We had such a nice time!

A beautiful, relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from family weekend at Bucknell (it is an easy 20 minutes to Lewisburg) and were so fortunate to find this beautiful house right on Penns Creek. The full length porch overlooks the creek which looks and sounds amazing. The house is tastefully decorated and well stocked with everything you need for a relaxing stay (we were surprised to find charcoal and a lighter for the grill). Mike greeted us at the house and was super helpful & friendly. Thanks for an amazing weekend!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the cottage. We are not usually repeat customers since we like to see new things, but the cottage and property are so peaceful that we came back and will continue to do so. We took advantage of the kayaks, charcoal, firewood and coffee that is provided. These things add to the experience.

Everything I was looking for! Amazing vacation with my furrbabies!

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a place to get away from the city and relax with my mom and my 4 dogs, this cottage was everything I wanted and more! Wonderful view from the screened in porch looking out to the beautiful creek right in the back yard! My dogs loved it! Privacy was awesome, even with a public area for the creek being close by, no issues whatsoever! Fire pit and fireplace were great, especially since we had some chilly nights!

Had no cell service, which I'm sure depends on the provider as well. I didn't mind but could've been an issue if there was an emergency. Had some dirty dishes and the bathtub needed cleaned before we could use it, but other than that was very nice. They also offered the use of the kayaks, due to them being stored under the porch and my fear of spiders I didn't end up using them, but was definitely a plus when booking.

I plan to stay again, except even longer next time!

Beautiful!! Enjoyed the Kayaks!

  • 4 of 5

The plus with the cottage was the addition of the extra bedroom, there is a few maintenance issues which I will contact Mike who takes care of Maintenance on the property. But overall the cottage was great. Thanks for the pleasure of staying there.
