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 Pennsylvania

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.

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!

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.

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to vacation if you are looking for peace and quiet and love the sound of the water rushing over the rocks. The porch looking at the creek is wonderful, we spent most of our time out there from morning coffee to evening dinner. It felt like a home away from home not just a vacation cottage,, The owner was great, he met us as we pulled into the driveway, showed us things about the cottage and left us with phone numbers in case we needed to get a hold of him. The bottle of wine that was on the table was great and we went to the winery to get more. I would say take a look at this rental for your next vacation. A long weekend in the fall would be so beautiful.
