  • New favorite cabin!

    "Mary's Ivy Cabin is superb! Even though we contacted her just a week before, Mary was happy to fit us in, and we are so glad she did. When you walk into a new rental house there's always the "oh no, what am I getting into..." moment, but as soon as we turned on the lights we were thrilled! The cabin is adorable, mostly one giant room with a large, comfortable sitting area, a well-appointed little kitchen, a dining table, and a perfect little pot-bellied wood stove in the middle to keep the place cozy. Mary supplied us with a huge bin of lovely smelling wood to burn, and we spent Friday and Saturday nights alternating between chatting in the 2 rocking chairs in front of the fire, and chatting in the giant, clean/new hot tub on the porch. The hot tub looks over the stream, and it's really perfectly situated. The cabin is at the end of a dead-end road with just one house nearby, on the other side of the house from the hot tub/deck, so it feels very private and peaceful. The stream is lovely and loud and beautiful, we walked along it quite a ways and even found a treehouse! We loved turning the hot tub jets off to listen to nature for a while -- then turning the jets and laptop back on to revel in human technology. :) The one bedroom is cute, with a comfy full-sized bed, and there is a big loft for kids or a second couple! The whole place is beautifully decorated with art from various cultures and lots of plants. The bathroom is fine, it did seem to get a bit of septic smell occasionally so we kept the door closed -- consider bringing a scented candle or two for the bathroom + bedroom since they are right next to each other. That is the only concern of any kind we had at Mary's beautiful Ivy Cottage. It was easy getting in, cleaning up, and a wonderful place to stay. Mary is very sweet and acommodating and was easy to communicate with. I already look forward to going back next time we need a quiet nature weekend - with a hot tub!"

  • Great place for a family vacation!!

    "Spent 4 days and 3 nights with our family of 15 people. We ALL had such a wonderful time from the oldest 65 to the youngest 7 months old. We spent the first afternoon and evening at the property playing games on the wonderful wrap around porch and dining around the large dining room table. The next two day were spent on Raystown Lake boating, skiing, swimming and enjoying the beautiful views and warm water. Our evenings were spent together in the open concept first floor. A GREAT place for family fun and entertaining . Thank you Spur of the Moment!!"

  • Juniata College Mom from New Jersey

    "We have stayed at hotels, motels, cabins, and trailers while visiting my son at Juniata college but none of our stays compared to our stay at the farmhouse. I wish we knew about this gem of a rental before. The farm was clean, spacious, warm and had everything and more in household needs that you could think of. The sunroom/observation room was a treat. Our first night we saw a black bear in the back woods. We also saw porcupines, deer, racoons, and bunnies in the back woods on the following nights. Our dog was in Springer Spaniel heaven jumping in and out of the babbling fresh water Creek next to the property. I would like to come back for a full week to get more hiking in at the state land that border the property."
