About Carol Heth

Pete & Carol have lived next door to the property 30+years. Carol grew up right up the road and the home they live in, next door to the cottage, was her Grandparents.

Carol Heth purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Carol Heth chose Pennsylvania

With growing up and living in the area for so long we know how enjoyable it is to be here. We have a private property and enjoy living here.

What makes this cottage unique

The historic area around us has so much to see and enjoy. Whether you enjoy nature, hiking, kayaking, boating, shopping, farmer's markets, the Amish, or relaxing you will have the opportunity for it all. So close to the Susquehanna River to be able to use it or the hiking trails around it. If you want to travel to a big city, we are centrally located to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, or New York City. But, you will enjoy the city of Lancaster and Columbia for their arts and antiques.

Perfect weekend in the country

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The house was very quaint, clean and very well maintained. Pete and Carole were extremely warm and welcoming, they could not do enough for us and our dogs. We will definitely return.

What a lovely retreat! And the screen porch with swinging daybed is pure heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Carol and Pete are the best hosts we've ever met! And we can't say enough about this "home away from home" on their little farm nestled in the hills. You'll see donkeys, emus, chickens, and a daily morning cow parade. You're welcomed with farm fresh (amazing) eggs and fantastic home made scones. This cozy retreat has an amazing kitchen, and the upstairs bathroom is very spacious as well. Everything is designed with a wonderful touch. We recommend it without reservation!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

What a special Thanksgiving holiday in the country. We enjoyed the beautifully designed cottage, the gourmet kitchen, the comfortable bed, and the pastoral setting. With Carol and Pete's help with the seating arrangements and dishes, we were able to cook up a great Thanksgiving dinner for our parents and share it at a table together in the cottage. We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it for anyone who would like to spend some time in the countryside, and still be close to all that Lancaster has to offer.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Our mini-vacation was much too short at this fantastic rental. Everything was just so lovely. Hosts were wonderful people and very helpful with anything you need. We loved the country/ farm life of this rental,and we will be sure to return. We loved that it is pet-friendly so our furbabies could accompany us too!We highly recommend!!

If you enjoy shopping, the Amish, or just relaxing this will be a treat for you. Centrally located to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, or New York City for day trips if so desired.
