About Steve

My mother and father started to build this home in 1969. Each year we would build on and improve the property until my mother and father were aging and began to really enjoy the property in the mid to later 1980's. I grew up helping my parents build this cottage and to this day, still enjoy every moment I spend at the cottage. Now my family enjoys the cottage with me as well. We truly love this cottage and hope you enjoy your stay!

Please remember this is a family owned cottage. Enjoy your stay at the cottage and take care of this property as if it was your cottage. Thank you.


Steve purchased this cottage in 1969

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful private cottage located right next to Knoebels. Walk to the park with the children, have some great fun and stroll back to the cottage for a quick rest. Sit under the pavilion with the three handmade swings, eat with the family on the extremely large handmade picnic tables and listen to the sounds of "Ole Smokey".

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Steve's cottage and they just get better and better. His home is absolute perfection. The home itself is outstanding in its amenities. And the outside area is stunning. The proximity of the cottage to Knoebel's is incredible - you cannot get closer unless you rent one of the rather ramshackle cottages that Knoebel's offers. The difference between those and Steve's lovely home is like the difference between a five star hotel and Bates Motel. We were unable to get the cottage for one stay since we discovered it and the disappointment has not gone away!! We are truly in love with this cottage and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Great time!

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time! The cottage is very conveniently located to Knoebels park. A short walk will get you there. It's just far enough away that you don't hear the noise of the park at night. We had a party of six, which was just right. If you have any more than that, it would be crowded, especially with one bathroom. (The bathroom could use some updating!) The outdoor area, with grill, picnic tables, firepit, etc. was very nice.

A Hidden Gem near Knoebels in Elysburg

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eight stayed for three days at Steve's cottage. The accommodations were great for us! Charming and cozy with all the amenities. The pavilion out back was a big plus for our family dinners and cookout. Loved making S'Mores over the fire pit too. Plus who wouldn't like the three minute walk to Knoebels? It was so easy to go back and forth to the cottage. Cathy met us, showed us around and answered our questions. Celebrated a family birthday there too and are planning to book again for next year! This place is a real find. Thank you Steve.

We had a wonderful time. Will go again. Our favorite spot was the back yard!

Pavilion was great. I can't say enough good things.

Close to the park

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time booking with VRBO so I was a little apprehensive. Steve was very responsive to all of my questions I had leading up to and during my stay.

The property manager, Cathy lives right across the street and she was there to welcome us and very accessible during our stay, which was helpful.

You couldn't find a place closer to the park than this- a definite upgrade to camping out in the park cabins. A perfect size for two small families with three decently sized bedrooms, a main living room and a really great outdoor area.
