Overview

About the property

Beautiful 1600 Square Foot 4 bedroom home with Beautiful Views

The house sits on a beautiful 40 acre setting located just 5 minutes from downtown Mansfield, PA and less than 15 minutes from Historic Wellsboro, PA. The Carriage House has beautiful views of protected wetlands where there are migrating Canadian Geese, thousands of croaking peepers, wild turkeys, deer and black bear. Sitting on the front porch, looking at the tranquil setting will feel like days gone by. There are many places to wonder and explore on the estate….

The adjacent Country House is located on the property and the 2 homes located near each other can both be reserved to accommodate large groups comfortably. The tranquil setting is wonderful for children…ideal for sitting around the campfire in Adirondack style seating, star gazing, roasting marshmallows, catching lightening bugs, grilling out, picnic lunches and enjoying time with family and friends while having all the wonderful things to do in Tioga County in your back yard. The Estate is a perfect location for a large family get-a-way, a reunion or a corporate retreat when you rent both homes for a total of 9 bedrooms.

About David and Rachel Tews

Rachel and David Tews - Proprietors

We opened our home as a vacation rental in 2009. We moved to another home and decided to turn it into a vacation rental rather than sell the property. My husband and I both own other businesses in downtown Wellsboro, PA. I am the owner of The Fifth Season, a women's boutique and home furnishings store. (Stop by and visit the store, especially if you love the design style and decor in the homes.) My husband is a partner in a telecommunications company called Indigo Wireless. We are very active in our community and are often found working on one of our many charity or philanthropic ventures.We are the proud parents of 4 children. 2 older boys one who lives in Scottsbluff NE and one who will soon be graduating from University of Pittsburgh. We have 2 young girls, one who is 4 and one who is 7 who love attending Montessori and doing dance and gymnastics and performing in shows.

David and Rachel Tews purchased this house in 2004

Why David and Rachel Tews chose Pennsylvania Wilds

My husband purchased the property in 1997 and raised his 2 older sons in the Country House. They were animal lovers and had a Noah's ark of rescued animals living on the property which is perfectly conducive to many animals with the large open pastures and nostalgic renovated red roofed barn. There are still 2 donkeys that live on the property. (called Peter and Buckwheat) He built the Carriage House in 2004 where he had offices for his business in a Feng Shui design. We converted the house from an office/relaxation space to a Vacation Rental in 2006 when my husband and I met. We decided we needed to live in Wellsboro to be closer to our other businesses. Rather than sell the home we decided to turn it into a vacation rental and share the beautiful setting with others.

What makes this house unique

Our property is a beautiful 40 acres that sits across from a protected wetland. It is a very peaceful oasis to visit when you are looking to get-a- way from the fast paced life of the city and suburbs. If you love a beautifully decorated home with all the modern amenities this is the home for you. The homes are decorated in the lovely 'Fifth Season' style.

Total Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I pulled in the driveway, I was impressed. But the inside of the Carriage House was so inviting! It was decorated beautifully in each room and very spacious. Everything was provided and was VERY clean. We would definitely go back!

Beautiful home in a peaceful environment.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more! This property is beautiful, peaceful and had everything we needed to reconnect with our teens. This home is beautifully decorated and the fire pit added for some outdoor fun times with ghost stories and s'mores. Plenty of room for a whiffle ball game! Thank you!

This is an awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place to stay! It was perfect for a long weekend with our family. The house was clean, pretty decor, beds are comfy, great bathroom and wireless internet was a plus. When it comes to the outdoors, wonderful views, fire pit was nice, patio was relaxing, nice grill, and of course, the donkey and horses are a treat to see when you wake up and look out the window in the morning. Great location. We hope to visit again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We went for a weekend getaway to celebrate our Mom for Mother's Day. The house was in a beautiful setting. It was clean inside and out; and well-stocked with most things we may have needed for the stay. The quirky donkey 'hee-haw' was a great laugh for us while we were there. We will definitely be renting it again!
