It was the serenity of this home that sealed the deal for Karen and Gene when they decided to purchase it in 2007. It was the perfect way to complement their love of entertaining friends and family while being able to provide them a vacation retreat away from home. Let us share it with you!
Selena & Karen purchased this cottage in 2007
This property is awesome. It is very classy, comfortable, and has everything you need. If you like to cook, the kitchen is perfectly stocked with all sorts of kitchenware. The couches and beds are top notch, and the location is remote enough that you will not be disturbed at all through the night, yet close enough to town that you can easily grab a meal, do your grocery shopping, or stroll through main street Chambersburg. I highly recommend it, and I look forward to visiting again in the future.
I stayed here for the weekend to get some peace and quiet and that is exactly what I got and needed. The house is absolutely beautiful. It was very clean and everything you needed was right there. This would be a perfect place for a nice romantic getaway. Karen and Selena were extremely polite and helpful. I could not find one negative about this place! I would highly recommend this home to anyone and I plan on returning there again! Thank You so much Karen and Selena for giving me a very nice cozy, relaxing weekend!
My girlfriend and I came here to get out of the city for some peace and quiet and were very comfortable. We cooked in the fully equipped kitchen without missing anything. The cottage is in a serene location and is exactly as described and photographed. I would recommend this home for couples, families, or anyone looking for a quiet retreat in a tranquil setting.
This is a gem of a rental home in a peaceful setting but not far off the interstate. The interior was surprisingly roomy and VERY nicely decorated in modern cabin style. The living room-kitchen area was large enough for our extended family of 18 to gather for a lunch and family photo in front of the fireplace. Plenty of room for a family of 4 to spend a few nights and not be tripping over each other. TV in the finished basement gave the kids an area to play Wii while the adults relaxed watching football. Extra touches like keurig machine, K-cups, soap, dish detergent,
paper products, quality linens and water bottles in the refrigerator made our arrival even more comfortable. This is our third HomeAway-VRBO rental. All have been nice, but this one is by far the best so far. The sunrise view from the loft area was spectacular. We will definitely return!
Sent a text saying awesome house, great design. Nice to be so far yet so close to necessities. Loved watching the horses across the street. My Dad used to show and jump Equine. TV is a little high up [neck stretch] yet it was great!
We sort of just stumbled upon this cottage on our search for a fall weekend getaway. The pictures looked nice, the reviews were good, and the price was reasonable, so we booked it. Little did we know what a luxurious place we'd found! The cottage is nice enough from the outside, but it's when you step in the door that you realize how incredible it is... hardwood floors, stone fireplace, granite countertops, amazing kitchen, upscale linens on the beds, plush towels, and beautiful furniture, and that's just for starters!! It was in pristine condition when we arrived with the beds beautifully made.
Many times I think mountain cabins and cottages are furnished in "thrift store style," but not this one! It is obvious that the owners invested a lot of thought and care into furnishing their cottage in an upscale yet comfortable manner. We wanted a family bonding vacation and that's exactly what we got -- we made great meals in the well-appointed kitchen, played games and read books in front of the fire, took naps and just had one of the most relaxing weekends we've had in quite awhile. There is great internet and cable TV reception there, but we chose to have an "unplugged" vacation, and this cottage was the ideal place for it. We rode bikes to the corner deli for breakfast, went into downtown Chambersburg to ride our bikes along the rail-trail, and hiked at Caledonia State Park. It was only 30 minutes from Whitetail Ski Resort so we had a beautiful drive out there for the Fall Festival. This would be a great place to stay while at Whitetail for skiing.
This would be an incredible place for a honeymoon or romantic getaway for 2, although there is a queen bed upstairs, and a queen futon downstairs, so it can sleep six people. The only people I maybe would not recommend this cottage to would be people who have trouble with stairs or families with young children, since only one of the bedrooms is on the main floor, and the two others are upstairs and downstairs via a circular stairway which may be hard for some to navigate.
We already can't wait to come back!! Thank you so much to Karen & family for having your beautiful cottage available for rent -- truly you blessed our family!!
