Why Carol Heth chose Columbia
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.
The perfect romantic getaway cottage ❤️
Nestled on a little farm, this cozy cottage is the perfect romantic getaway. Hosts, Carol and Pete will make you feel right at home. From the homemade scones and farm fresh eggs to the flowers on the table — no detail was overlooked. The cottage itself boasts lovely decor and a gourmet kitchen. Easily accessible to Lancaster and Hershey, it’s a quiet retreat where you can curl up beside the fireplace, feed the donkeys or just take in the quiet beauty of the surroundings.
We had a wonderful time with daily greetings from the two donkeys, all the chickens. The cottage had everything that we needed. It was so comfortable, quiet, quaint with a beautiful kitchen. Carol said the cottage we stayed in was the tenant house on the farm before they renovated. Our dog Jude loved it too. We Loved, Loved our stay. Thank you Carol and Pete.
What a beautiful home to stay in. Our stay here was very enjoyable. The owners do an amazing job of making you feel at home.
A Little Piece of Paradise!
Carol was an incredible host, she went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Greeting us upon arrival with homemade scones fresh out of the oven! The house had such charm and was filled with lots of lovely touches. It was super clean, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom and shower was excellent and the kitchen was very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We found it to be beautifully furnished with great attention to detail and excellent value for money. We espceially enjoyed the added feature of the outside screened in area, allowing us to totally enjoy our morning coffees and evening night caps as well as watching the animals on the farm. We would highly recommend this incredible home. Thank you Carol for letting us share your wonderful piece of paradise. We will definitely be back again next year!

Unique country home
We really enjoyed staying in this unique house. We loved the layout, especially the kitchen with a professional gas stove. The owners were very nice and helpful. Upon arrival, they had fresh farm eggs in the refrigerator and several DELICIOUS gluten-free scones that they made for us were on the counter. They were successful in modifying their original recipe with gluten-free flour! It was nice and relaxing to look out the window and see all kinds of farm life, like chickens, donkeys, emus, etc. The donkeys are very friendly. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again in the future.
We made the decision to book a four-day stay the day before checking in. The reviews were so good that we were dubious about them all being 100% accurate. They were all true and then some. If you are looking for a bucolic and relaxing respite this is your place. We focused mostly on restaurants and antique stores in near-by Columbia. Carol and Pete are terrific and totally committed to their guests. We look forward to a return stay...
The cottage is located near the beautiful Susquehanna River. You may enjoy spending time on the river or hike a trail near it. 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.
