MAGICAL COTTAGE AT THE GOVERNOR'S RETREAT ON DINGMANS CREEK

Dingmans Ferry Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

The cottage is nestled among high hemlocks facing Dingmans Creek, which can be heard gurgling night and day. After duty as a stable and carriage house the barn was converted to living quarters sometime in the 1950s. It was renovated in 2001 and won Better Homes and Garden’s Home Improvement Contest and was featured as their cover story in October 2002. The guidelines for the renovation were to “preserve the irreplaceable.”

The lower level has two fireplaces. The one in the living room is wood burning and the one in the kitchen is gas. The walls and floors are primarily stone and the living room's vaulted ceiling is 30 feet high. The six skylights allow guests to enjoy sun, rain and snow.

The loft has a magical bedroom with windows that overlook the creek. The cottage was featured in Better Homes and Gardens, Good Housekeeping and Wood Beautiful. It was also used as a location for Hallmark Cards 2005 Christmas card collection.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • pets considered

Slice of heaven

We had such a relaxing & enjoyable time at your cottage, which is surrounded by beauty with a "zen" like feel to it. Sitting along side the creek and falling asleep to the babbling sounds of it was amazing. Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing you slice of heaven with us.

Map

Perched on five acres, beside crystal clear Dingmans Creek in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the turn-of-the century Governor’s Retreat is a cozy and tranquil hideaway. Built in 1906 by Pennsylvania governor William Sproul, both the main house and the cottage proudly showcase the Arts & Crafts movement, their construction highlighted by Colonial mason techniques and local materials. Colonial style elements, including the architectural keystone above the windows and doors, meet the Arts & Crafts aesthetic.

Other Activities: Hiking, Tennis court on property, Delaware River rafting/canoeing/ fishing, Lakes, shopping, Antiquing, Historic sites
