Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia, PA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
