Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The mountain cottage provided a very comfortable place to stay with close access to AT hiking and other beautiful scenery. Attention to our questions and requests was quickly given, and our host added numerous nice little touches to make us feel welcome. We hope to stay at the cottage the next time that we are in the area.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you were able to spend some time at the cottage! The AT is definitely easy to access from here and it provides a great opportunity to be outdoors and explore a section of the trail on a day hike. Whether it's hiking or other local interests, the cottage offers many comforts to look forward to after a day out and about in the area. It's our pleasure to take care of the details so that you can simply enjoy your time away from the everyday! We hope to see you again!

Owner's Response: The cottage is well suited for a getaway from the busy world! It's so easy to get to from multiple metropolitan areas and provides a secluded but not remote setting for those times when you just need a little quiet to relax and refresh. We're so glad you were able to stay and look forward to your next visit!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the cottage as part of her birthday celebration. The house is on a remote road south of the Chippaux State Forest and about 30 minutes from Gettysburg. We couldn't have asked for anything more out of a cottage stay. Highly recommended!

At this price, I don't want to change my own sheets

  • 2 of 5

This is about the particular place and the "sharing economy" more broadly: If I am paying as much as a hotel, I don't want to take my own garbage out and change my own sheets. Sharing means 'I have extra, you take some for free. And maybe help me out around the house.' At this price (more than a hotel) I don't want to help around the house. Sorry. So either the price needs to be lower or the expectations from guests need to be lower. At a hotel a maid cleans every day. It is the cost of doing business. Unfortunately the place was quite musty too. A function of expecting guests to do so much I believe.

We had a great experience and this cozy little cottage. It was nice to disconnect with no tv. We enjoyed tea and games along with the nice touches left bu the owner. Can’t wait to get back for a longer stay.

Pleasant relaxation and hiking

  • 5 of 5

The mountain cottage was exactly as it was described and we were very satisfied. The cabin was clean and cozy. Among the highlights of the cabin were its proximity to Waynesboro, PA; the rocking chairs under a ceiling fan on the front porch; the proximity to the wonderful Pen-Mar Park with the access to Appalachian Trail; and the available board games. We did choose to drive to Pen-Mar to hike even though their is walking access to the Appalachian Trail because the road to trail was narrow for walking. We had a lovely visit with family and the teenagers were able to set aside electronics and sink into 3 days of restful family time, augmented by the board games. We will definitely return when visiting in the area! Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! The cottage definitely has the perks of being both far enough away from the hustle and bustle yet being close enough to access a variety of sights without without having to go too far. We are happy that you were comfortable and look forward to you visiting again.
