  • 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!"

  • Batteries Recharged!

    "We truly enjoyed our stay and the peace, quiet, and beauty of the property. Unfortunately, we scheduled for the hottest week of the year...but, despite the heat and a bit of rain, we had some wonderful meals cooked over the charcoal grill. :o) The hot tub was super relaxing and the cottage had everything that we needed for our stay (including A/C!) We made good use of the scrabble board and puzzles. Best of all, our Westie, Blue, was SO happy to tag along on this trip. We also saw a gorgeous buck and a large family of pheasants. We look forward to visiting again sometime - maybe when the leaves are changing. Thank you Lola for everything!"

  • Peaceful and Relaxing

    "Beautiful house with an old fashioned look with modern amenities. We enjoyed hustle and bustle of DC and Gettysburg during the day and the quiet, peaceful nights on the farm. We had a wonderful vacation!"

  • Fabulous vacation home for famililies!

    "Our recent stay at this property was great! It was spotless, had a fully stocked kitchen, games and a loft perfect for our boys! It was also a short distance to Raystown Lake and Raystown Resort. We would recommend it to families especially, but really anyone who would appreciate a house like this for a get away. The Gabrys and Griffin Families 🙂"
