Couples Retreat or Family Adventure - (YouTube Video)
Come and sit by the fire, go for a hike and/or visit Fallingwater. Kentuck Knob, Ohiopyle and/or the Great Allegheny Passage ... Mount Davis at Forbes State Forest.
This new - contemporary cottage is located adjacent to our 65 acre homestead and surrounded by over 800 additional acres of woodlands. Activities also available nearby in Maryland, Somerset, PA and in other parts of the Laural Highlands. This Woodland Cottage offers you the opportunity to experience life in the Appalachian Mountains in a very private setting. . The cottage is within 10-yards of a mountain brook and on the edge of a thousand acre forest through which the Casselman River and Great Allegheny Passage flow. Occupants are serenaded by the sounds of forests bird, amphibians, tree crickets, howling coyotes, barking fox and babbling water. The elevated 10’ x 34’ deck overlooking forest and stream has a 10’ x 22’ section under roof allowing “outdoor” time even on rainy days.
We can accommodate 4 guests - queen bed and two twin beds (daybed with trundle). Our base rate for the Woodland Cottage is $125/night double occupancy. We charge $20/night for each additional person.
The Woodland Cottage has a fully equipped ready to cook kitchen, dining area with table and chairs, living room area with reading chairs and gas fireplace (in season), den area with daybed/trundle (bedding here is for 2 twin beds) and bedroom area with queen size pillow topped mattress, dresser and closet. (A privacy curtain may be added between these two sleeping areas.) The cottage is ADA accessible and the bathroom has a large shower that is ADA compliant.
Outside: large covered and open deck has a dining area, gas grill, comfortable chairs, dining table with chairs and benches. There is a fire ring with wooden bench and fireside seating. Firewood for a campfire that will last several hours for each night of your stay is provided. Two other rustic benches are placed in more secluded locations for solitude or private discussions.
For curious kids or adults there are 7 salamander boards hidden around the property, a black light and canvas for attracting moths and a stream for building dams, finding “bugs” or just getting dirty.
The gas fireplace in the sitting area is available for use from mid-Sept. through mid-May. Heating and air conditioning are available year round as appropriate.
Please - no smoking inside.
Check in after 4 p.m. -- Check out by noon

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: My husband (Bryon) and I purchased the James Campbell Farm property in 1990 and spent many years restoring the original (1780's) log house as our home. Subsequently we have refurbished all of the farm buildings and added our "glamping" site at our son's favorite camping spot. We have planted 100's of trees (mostly native species), created vegetable, herb and flower gardens, replanted the orchard, developed fruit vines - red and black raspberries, and grapes as well as blueberries. In addition to raising much of what we eat we cut firewood on our sustainably managed forests and now offer guests the opportunity to catch and release the fish in the pond -- Come and see how 'green' country life can be!

Why the Owner Chose Fort Hill, PA, USA:
Bryon and I were excited to have a chance to expand the opportunities to share our homestead by purchasing the small wooded parcel next to us, rebuilding the cabin, repurposing the pavilion and creating a special place for couples and families to be together. Over the last 8 years guests at our cottage (see: www.vrbo/322410) and glamping site (see: www.vrbo/498403) have asked to bring children and friends. The Woodland Cottage can accommodate an extra 2 guests from Memorial Day through Columbus Day Weekend. Please send an inquiry.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This "woodland" cottage is 'tucked' into its very own 'special' spot beside a small stream, in the woods and surrounded by over 800 acres of undeveloped land on our side of Fort Hill Road. There are many types of bird feeders that attract a variety of birds. Flowerbeds attract butterflies. On any given day you might see woodcock, ruffed grouse, wild turkey and white-tailed deer. If you are lucky you might hear a great horned owl, screech owl, or a coyote. The view from deck is forests and mountains as far as the eye can see.
