About Green Valley Cottages: While our main priority at Green Valley is to offer you a secluded, private vacation; we are not the stereotypical cabin in the woods. Our cottages are cozy, but light; decorated in the cottage style of pastels and florals. Each cottage has their own private gas or electric log fireplace and hot tub; the perfect places to relax after an equaling relaxing day. They also have their own fully equipped kitchens stocked with everything from the refrigerator to the tea towels. Each cottage also has a private campfire area and charcoal grill, as well as 2 bicycles.
We've tried to provide everything you need for the ultimate relaxing experience. This is your vacation; all you have to do is come!
About the Property: Our 75 acre property is the perfect place to find peace and quiet. Originally founded in the 1960s as a campground, Green Valley was reinvented and reopened as our cottage getaway in 1996. For the past 15 years, hundreds of guests have experienced the simple beauty that is Green Valley.
The lake at Green Valley is 3 acres in size and ranges in depth from 4 ft. to 16 ft. Stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish the lake is a favorite with everyone. A floating dock gives easy access to the pedal boat and rowboat and a fishing dock with Adirondack chairs makes a great place to soak up some sun, read, or throw in a line!
The hills and valleys of the property are filled with marked hiking trails for your enjoyment. On a spring day, discover a small waterfall on Smith Run Trail or question the origins of an old abandoned fence on Split Rail Trail. Fill your pockets with wild raspberries in the summertime as you meander down Bill's Trail and rediscover again the simple pleasures of life.
From Our Guest books at Green Valley: March 30, 2005
It's a lovely, cool, sunny day in our charming woodland retreat. Once, many years ago, I owned a cabin in the woods in Md. and had to give it up for many reasons. I dream of it still. This cottage reminds me of all the best memories of my early adulthood. So quiet, so tranquil. This is a blessed, enchanted place, out of time. My husband and I and our small dog, all enjoy the natural setting. We hope to return soon. Thank you, for sharing the magic with us. It's almost time to return home, but I will keep Green Valley in my heart, comforted by knowing it is here waiting for our return again in the near future. The lake, the woods, the creek, the bluebirds, all the creatures of the forest...We have found and experienced a profound peace here...enjoyed by the three of us...such comfort, so much lovliness, we are grateful for this discovery....Until we meet again.
Guests from Eastern Md
Lory Cottage is located just 6 miles off of Interstate 70 near Warfordsburg, Pa. We are 1.5 hrs. west of the D.C./Baltimore,Md. area and 2.5 hrs. east of Pittsburgh, Pa. It is a tri-state area and is close to Hancock, Md. and Berkeley Springs, WV. We are in one of the most rural counties in the country, but are close to outlet shopping, malls, theaters, and snow skiing. The C&O Canal, Potomac River, and a 20 mile hard surfaced bike trail are all nearby. Although there is much to do in the area, most of our guests find our cottage and property is where they want to stay. We have been providing this getaway property since 1995 and have many return guests. The quiet seclusion and natural beauty of this property are hard to find. You cannot see another house from Lory Cottage. As owners, our main desire is to keep the property as undeveloped as possible, so our guests can enjoy the natural beauty all around them.
