Overview

Warfordsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms ,1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6), Full Kitchen, Washer and Dryer

Francena Cottage is my personal favorite of the Green Valley Cottages--it is just the right size for 2-4 people. Francena Cottage opened to guest in 2000 it has become home away from home for many couples and families.

Francena Cottage is furnished with a mix of vintage, antique and new furnishings. The vaulted and beamed ceilings add to its charm. Francena Cottage sits among the tall, red oak trees near Bear Creek. The views from the living room are of the forest which you will enjoy while dining or relaxing by the fireplace. The kitchen is fully furnished with electric range, microwave, toaster, coffee-maker, and refrigerator.

This two bedroom cottage sleeps four adults very comfortably with one queen size bed and one full size bed.

Electric baseboard heat and air conditioning keeps the cottage comfortable.

The full bath has a tub with shower and a full size washer/dryer. All bath and bed linens are provided. The decks at Francena Cottage are furnished with Adirondack chairs. Our relaxing Solana Hot Tub, makes this cottage a great place to enjoy the outdoors !

There is a picnic bonfire area with charcoal grill.

The two acre lake is stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish and Adirondack chairs are provided lakeside. There are several marked hiking trails on the property and a bonfire area with firewood and picnic table. We also have two bicycles in the summer for you to enjoy biking on Green Valley Lake Lane. The property is gated for your privacy and a key is provided so you may check yourself in anytime after 3 pm. and check-out is anytime before 11 am.

Another great thing about Francena Cottage is location :

New York City - 268 miles / Phil.,Pa.- 206 miles / Pitt., Pa.- 142 miles / Lancaster, Pa. - 140 miles / D.C.-Balti., Md.- 98 miles / Rich., Va.- 199 miles.

Just the trip we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband arranged a getaway for my 40th Birthday. We have hectic work schedules and kids playing multiple sports keeps our home life extra busy! We needed the perfect getaway and we found it!! The first day we arrived it was like a warm spring day! We hiked the trails, rode the bikes and hung out by the lake area. We later built a camp fire and then relaxed in the hot tub! The next day we woke up and were in a winter wonderland with about 3 inches of snow! We hiked some more, built a snow man and enjoyed the peace and quite of the property! No phones ringing and no errands to run! We saw a herd of deer and many other little critters while out and about. Our dog loved the time off leash on his hikes!! The Francena cottage was adorable! So nicely decorated, and had everything we needed!! We made a full Italian meal the second night and sat by the fire place playing games and watching movies!! The kitchen had all the pots/pans and appliances we needed to accomplish that! I can't say enough about this property! We decided on that trip that we would be back and have in fact booked another trip to Green Valley. After showing the pictures to our daughter she asked to come here for her 13th Birthday (not the beach as originally planned) so we will be back during the summer!! We are looking very forward to enjoying the time on the lake, fishing, swimming and hiking the trails with the kids and dogs!! We were very happy to find Green Valley, then were so happy to see that we could bring our fur kids as well!! We love including them on our trips and have surely found our new go to place!!! We stayed two nights and the time went by so fast....next time we are staying longer for sure!!! Perfect home away from home!!!! :)

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I searched high and low for a small, affordable, nice cottage that had a hot tub, was pet friendly and near where we could cross country ski. All of those requirements are hard to find in the first place, but to add to that, we didn't start looking until a few days before the weekend. Lucky for us, Francena was available and exactly what we were looking for. We had an absolutely perfect weekend, arriving on Friday evening to find the cottage was even better than in the pictures. On Saturday, we drove an hour to Wisp and skied for a while then headed back to the hot tub and our happy pup. On Sunday morning the weather warmed up to almost 50 degrees so we loaded up the car and hiked around some of the trails on the property before heading back home. The weekend was so great, we felt like we'd been away for a lot longer. We will definitely be back, hopefully for a longer stay next time.

Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Francena for 3 nights and then Sophrina for 2 nights. Both cottages were equally enjoyable. They are homey and cozy. Both have fireplaces and hot tubs and are relaxing retreats away from home. I recommend visiting this remote retreat to decompress from day to day life. We returned both relaxed and rejuvenated ready to start 2011 fresh. Cottages are pet friendly and include all the amenities you need.

We stayed July 11-15th, 2007 and this cottage was absolutely beautiful! The decor was stunning. It was so peaceful and serene, we didn't want to leave. Nothing beats sitting out on the deck at night in the jacuzzi listening to the sounds of the night. Anyone who rents one of the cottages of Green Valley will be thoroughly pleased. I brought my dog and he was in his glory. You will have one tired pooch when you leave there. It took 4 days after we got back for him to recoop! We couldn't have picked a better place for a get-a-way!
