My Green Valley Cottages in Warfordsburg, Pa. Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths,

Green Valley Cottags is a 75 acre rental property in Warfordsburg, Pa.

Lory Cottage sits at the end of Green Valley Lake Lane and looks down on the lovely two acre lake. The cottage is surrounded by softness and solitude.

At night her lights reflect on the water, and in the daytime she catches the valley breezes. Two stories with two bedrooms, Lory is cozy and completely furnished for your getaway.

A covered porch downstairs and a sundeck upstairs connects you to the outdoors. Your private hot tub seats five adults and is on a deck outside the great room, and has a great view of the lake or the starry night sky.

Lory has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with electric range and oven, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and utensils, pots and pans, and silverware. The full bath downstairs has a roomy four foot shower. The great room has a TV with a DVD player (no TV reception), gas fireplace, and a stack washer/dryer.

Upstairs you will find two bedrooms,both with a queen-size beds, and also a half bath. Both bedrooms also access the large sundeck that makes a great place to soak up some sun or stargaze on a warm summers night. All linens and towels are provided.

The two acre lake is stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish and adirondack chairs are provided lakeside. There are several marked hiking trails on the property and a bonfire area with firewood is located by the water.

We also have two bicycles in the summer for you to enjoy biking on Green Valley Lake Lane. The property is gated for your privacy and a key is provided so you may check yourself in any time after three in the afternoon and checkout is any time before noon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The memories we arebringing home from Green Valley are immeasurable.

So peaceful. Unlike the rest of the world.

My husband and I enjoyed every moment here, laughing, smiling playing (I haven't ridden a bike in years!!), fishing, and simply enjoying each others company.

For this, I thank you, Lola, for making this happen.

The world needs more places like this to slow people's lives down and remember what is really important in life.

Thanks you

We stayed July 11-15th, 2007 and this cottage was absolutely beautiful! The decor was stunning. It was so peaceful and serene, we didn't want to leave. Nothing beats sitting out on the deck at night in the jacuzzi listening to the sounds of the night. Anyone who rents one of the cottages of Green Valley will be thoroughly pleased. I brought my dog and he was in his glory. You will have one tired pooch when you leave there. It took 4 days after we got back for him to recoop! We couldn't have picked a better place for a get-a-way!

Great Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lory Cottage was the perfect getaway for us from the DC busyness, and our animals loved it there. All three of our dogs swam during our week, and our cats even got to enjoy the outdoors from the top balcony. We definitely plan on making it an annual activity.

We would recommend probably just having more dvds on hand in each cottage for when the weather gets too bad to really do much outside. We didn't really have an issue with it, but some people probably would like to take the trip just to sit in.

We'd prefer to keep this a place secret but fair is fair. We simply love it and it is at least as nice as advertised.

Owner's Response: I know what you mean, Tom and Leia...I'd like to keep Green Valley all to myself, too, but sharing it with so many wonderful guests is fun, too. Thank you so very much for once again being such wonderful guests, and for taking time to tell other about Green Valley. Lola

We absolutely loved Lory Cottage at Green Valley. My husband and I brought our almost 2 year old son and 2 pugs. Everyone felt right at home immediately. Very neat, clean, peaceful, and relaxing. We enjoyed having a fire by the lake, walking on the trails, soaking in the hot tub under the stars, and having a glass of wine in front of the indoor fire place. The house was secluded and our dogs loved running free. So thankful a place like this exists. We can't wait to return for our next getaway.

This place was great! I surprised my girlfriend for her 30th birthday with this little trip for us and the two dogs. We got back on Sunday, as I write this it is Tuesday, and the dogs are still passed out at home! All 4 of us loved it! The dogs were in heaven with all of the trails. We made sure to walk every trail at least once, including many walks around the lake. My only regret was the lake was frozen, so I did not get much fishing in. I did try a little in the creek, but didn't even see a fish yet alone get a bite. This property was a perfect place to just get away from the real world. No cable, internet, and I put my cell phone on airplane mode for the entire weekend. We enjoyed the hot tub at night. Even with the snow, I eventually (took three attempts) got a nice campfire going by the lake...and I didn't cheat by using anything like gasoline :). The cottage itself was great! We just loved the entire weekend, and we plan on coming back with friends and family. I still need to fish in that lake!
