This is a beautiful cottage with a brand new master bedroom suite, upgraded second full bathroom and renovated powder room. This house is situated on a tranquil wooded four-acre lot. The property borders Lake Towhee County Park lands and is within one mile of the Lake Nockamixon State Park marina located on the 1450-acre lake and 2010 acres of state game lands that include Haycock Mountain. The house offers plenty of privacy without being too isolated. Multiple grocery and drug stores are located in nearby Quakertown, a short 15 minute drive away.
The home is charming, comfortable and well-appointed. It has hardwood floors throughout and Corian countertops in the kitchen, bathroom and powder room. The country kitchen is stocked with cooking essentials and basic spices.
There is a relaxing family room with a beautiful stone fireplace. Firewood is provided. A large picture window offers a stunning view of the wooded backyard where wildlife can frequently be observed. Deer, wild turkeys, foxes and numerous species of birds can be seen almost any day of the year.
The dining room table seats six comfortably. A game/puzzle room is located on the first floor as is the living room where videos and DVDs are provided for our guests' enjoyment.
All bed, bath and kitchen linens are included. We also provide hand, laundry and dish soap.
Upstairs are three bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is spacious and has a queen-size bed with a luxuriously plush mattress. There is a spacious attached bathroom with a large walk in shower, a granite counter with double sinks. The second bedroom has two twin beds, and the third bedroom has a full bed.
The second full bathroom is also located upstairs and has a bath tub with a shower, granite counter and a single vanity.
There is a powder room downstairs with a granite counter top. The full size washer and dryer are also located on the first floor.
Outside is a patio with comfortable furniture and a gas barbeque grill. The patio overlooks the woods toward the rear of the property.
If you are looking to 'get away' and relax in peace and quiet and likely meet some of the local wildlife this is the perfect place to come!
A wonderful respite from reality. The house has everything you would need and was spotless. Nockamixon Park was a quick drive away but the back of the cottage was its own park, teemiing with deer and other animals. Wilco and Kathy are wonderful caretakers and I highly recommend the cottage for a quiet and private getaway.
12/28/09 - 1/4/10: We had a perfect vacation! The cottage is just as described, very charming and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped with all that you may need and the fireplace in the family room is wonderful. The location is terrific, very near shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.
We stayed in Haycock over Christmas in 2009; it was near Philly and close enough to our family in NJ. We will definately stay again, the house was very comfortable for the 5 of us, the fireplace was wonderful and the highspeed internet was a nice surprise. The cottage is tucked away in the woods with plentiful wildlife and a beautiful forest behind. The beds were comfortable and there was plentiful towels, blankets and throws for warming up by the fire. We love it! The only drawback was the electric stove but that was only a small inconvienence. The cottage comes with board games, puzzles, and sat TV! It's got everything, a great find
10 days in September - what a lovely and comfortable
cottage. Everything you need is there, and all is in
good condition. We really have enjoyed our time there
and can highly recommend this cottage.

We stayed over on Labor Day weekend of 2009. What a pristine and cozy cottage nestled in its gorgeous location next to two parks. We were a party of 5 adults and a 4-year old and an infant of 6 months. The cottage was perfect for us. The electrical outlets were child-proofed and there were children's games to keep my active 4-year old entertained (a bonus!). The outside is as neat and tidy as the inside, the lawn and backyard facing a park is beautifully appointed.
We will definitely stay if we are in the north-Philly area again! Very highly recommended to all families.
