About Sales at Turning Leaf Vacation Rentals

In the mid-1990s Bob and Susan Fleming acquired two dilapidated log cottages along fayette springs road in chalk hill, pa. As director of a major area tourist attraction, susan fleming recognized the value of these properties both historically and economically but it was challenging to get anyone to agree to restore rather than demolish the houses, which were built in the 1930’s as hunting camps and abandoned to the elements for years.

With the help of some resourceful contractors, the couple was able to transform the cottages into the luxuriously rustic retreats you see today. The first cottage to welcome tourists opened in 1997 and the second in 2005. The flemings treasure their little piece of history and have enjoyed hosting visitors from all over the world for nearly 20 years. Automobiles and airplanes have replaced the boats and trains, a world-class spa has replaced the fayette springs, but the experiences of iconic architecture, pristine wilderness, exceptional white water, and unrivaled trails continue to draw tourists to our region.

Sales at Turning Leaf Vacation Rentals purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Sales at Turning Leaf Vacation Rentals chose Farmington

The property on which the cottages are located is the site of the original Fayette Springs, a popular resort and spa to which tourists flocked in the mid 1800’s. According to advertisements in the “genius of liberty,” a local newspaper from that period, people came from all over the east by train to ohiopyle or boat to brownsville, then by horse and buggy to partake of the health benefits of the water in the stream that runs behind the cabins. The water was guaranteed to cure all sorts of ailments. All that remains of the original spa are photos and some artifacts; a hand-carved stone basin, stone columns, a large stone slab with graffiti depicting names and dates from the period, and a fresh-water well that is dug into the mountainside.

What makes this cottage unique

The Springs House provides its guest a luxuriously quiet experience while still being close to all the activity centers associated with the ohiopyle area.

Charming cabin

  • 4 of 5

We really liked this little cabin in the woods. It's got both historical charm and modern conveniences. The bedroom and decks are charming, with views (and sounds) of the creek below. The kitchen is small and the living/dining area is functional -- but there is a nice fireplace and extra futon. Good location near Rt 40 and access to Ohiopyle (15 mins away), etc. Really sweet spot for a couple, family or bigger group would want to rent the adjoining Creek house which is bigger.

A tidy place to quiet yourself down.

  • 5 of 5

Put a back to the northeastern seaboard and a face to spotty sunlight through the leaves. Argued and lost with the three grandfather hickories on the deck. Learned myself the difference between a brook and a creek. Slept like I did when I was good at that and little else.

Lovely Location! Lovely owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to PA to hike in Ohiopyle State Park and the Cottages at Fayette Springs were the perfect place to stay and relax after hiking. There was a small mix-up in the reservation but the bonus was that we were able to spend a night in both of the cottages and they are both quaint, cozy and comfortable. The kitchens are well stocked and the views are beautiful. And I can't say enough positive things about the owners. They addressed our concerns immediately and made sure we had a wonderful weekend. 5 stars all the way around! Will stay here again if we return to the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! I know that we (on behalf of the owners) really appreciated your understanding of the "mix up" you say, so, glad you were able to experience both cabins! We would love to have you back! It's was our pleasure to "make it right". Thanks again for understanding and being such great guests.
