About the Property

1 bedroom with king size bed, 1 bathroom with laundry, sleeps 2

We welcome you to our historic cottage dating back to William Penn's daughter's inheritance. Your private guest house is located next to our 4 story stone house, tucked away in a hillside located on 95 acres of rolling farm and wood land.
As you enter this cottage, you will be welcomed by the gas fireplace and an open floor plan of living room kitchen combination area which includes an HDTV, a dining room nook and a fully equipped kitchen which makes in house preparations easy or you can have meals brought in by a local caterer with advance notice. The upstairs loft is surrounded by hand hewn beams and period hardware. Sleep well in your wrought iron king size bed, use your desk with internet accessibility or read in a comfy chair with ottoman.
Enjoy relaxing on the front porch wooden rockers or use the hammocks to read your favorite book. Then go out back and enjoy the walking trail or sit by the fire pit & enjoy smores (ingredients provided). So get away from the noise and busyness of everyday life and come here for some Rest, Relaxation, and be Renewed! We know that writers and artists would also love this picturesque and peaceful setting.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: We have lived on our farm for 44 years and have found it to be a wonderful place to raise our 4 children who are now grown. In 2014 we decided to restore this cottage and make it into a guest house and named it Hellers Hillside Hideaway. Our heart is to share our place with others who want to get away! Come and enjoy this quiet and peaceful setting nestled among the beautiful countryside. We will do our best to make your stay a memorable experience.
