Overview

About the property

Beautiful 1600 Square Foot 4 bedroom home with Beautiful Views

The house sits on a beautiful 40 acre setting located just 5 minutes from downtown Mansfield, PA and less than 15 minutes from Historic Wellsboro, PA. The Carriage House has beautiful views of protected wetlands where there are migrating Canadian Geese, thousands of croaking peepers, wild turkeys, deer and black bear. Sitting on the front porch, looking at the tranquil setting will feel like days gone by. There are many places to wonder and explore on the estate….

The adjacent Country House is located on the property and the 2 homes located near each other can both be reserved to accommodate large groups comfortably. The tranquil setting is wonderful for children…ideal for sitting around the campfire in Adirondack style seating, star gazing, roasting marshmallows, catching lightening bugs, grilling out, picnic lunches and enjoying time with family and friends while having all the wonderful things to do in Tioga County in your back yard. The Estate is a perfect location for a large family get-a-way, a reunion or a corporate retreat when you rent both homes for a total of 9 bedrooms.

About David and Rachel Tews

Rachel and David Tews - Proprietors

We opened our home as a vacation rental in 2009. We moved to another home and decided to turn it into a vacation rental rather than sell the property. My husband and I both own other businesses in downtown Wellsboro, PA. I am the owner of The Fifth Season, a women's boutique and home furnishings store. (Stop by and visit the store, especially if you love the design style and decor in the homes.) My husband is a partner in a telecommunications company called Indigo Wireless. We are very active in our community and are often found working on one of our many charity or philanthropic ventures.We are the proud parents of 4 children. 2 older boys one who lives in Scottsbluff NE and one who will soon be graduating from University of Pittsburgh. We have 2 young girls, one who is 4 and one who is 7 who love attending Montessori and doing dance and gymnastics and performing in shows.

David and Rachel Tews purchased this house in 2004

Why David and Rachel Tews chose Mansfield

My husband purchased the property in 1997 and raised his 2 older sons in the Country House. They were animal lovers and had a Noah's ark of rescued animals living on the property which is perfectly conducive to many animals with the large open pastures and nostalgic renovated red roofed barn. There are still 2 donkeys that live on the property. (called Peter and Buckwheat) He built the Carriage House in 2004 where he had offices for his business in a Feng Shui design. We converted the house from an office/relaxation space to a Vacation Rental in 2006 when my husband and I met. We decided we needed to live in Wellsboro to be closer to our other businesses. Rather than sell the home we decided to turn it into a vacation rental and share the beautiful setting with others.

What makes this house unique

Our property is a beautiful 40 acres that sits across from a protected wetland. It is a very peaceful oasis to visit when you are looking to get-a- way from the fast paced life of the city and suburbs. If you love a beautifully decorated home with all the modern amenities this is the home for you. The homes are decorated in the lovely 'Fifth Season' style.

Country getaway

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I live in Rochester, NY and went down to GAP, PA to pick our new puppy, so we stayed half way down in Mansfield, PA in this home for the weekend. It is in a serene location, not far from Mansfield which has some good breakfast/lunch spots. The house was the cleanest we have ever stayed at - I mean immaculate! The owners do a really great job cleaning. The rooms are amazing, with the master bed being a king size. It's well stocked too; towels, soap, dish washer tablets etc. Lots of wildlife around too; birds, donkeys and ponies. Paradise for us.

The only thing to watch for is there is another rental right next door, and there were college students staying there the weekend we were there, while they were not too loud, they could be heard (revving an engine late Friday night and beeping for some reason), then popping their nosey heads around for a look at who we were on Sunday, without saying a word to us!

Overall, I would imagine it is rare enough to get students as your neighbors; and other than that, we loved this place!
