From out guestbook - Sept. 8-10, 2013. Thank you so much for making such a special getaway hideaway. This was our first time here and we will def. be coming back. Our 2 dogs had the time of their lives. This mini vacation is just what we needed. You almost forget how peaceful and relaxing the world can be when you are always on the go. There is something very special about Green Valley that makes you forget anything negative/stressful in your lives. Thank you again for sharing this beautiful place with us. Green Valley is our new home away from home. We loved fishing on the lake, pedalboating, campfire under the stars and to finish a great day, a nice relaxing dip in the hot tub ! We will be back soon ! Shana & Shawn
SOPHRONIA COTTAGE sits on the banks of Bear Creek and has a beautifully treed front lawn with volleyball net, bonfire area with picnic table, and tree swing. The cottage sleeps 4 adults with a queen size bed in the bedroom and a sleep sofa in the great room. Electric baseboard heat, a gas fireplace in the bedroom, and air conditioning keeps the cottage comfortable year-round. Sophronia also has a relaxing Hot Tub on the bedroom deck! The kitchen is fully furnished and has an electric range w/oven, microwave, coffee-maker, toaster, refrigerator, and a full size washer/dryer. The full bath has a shower and all bath and bed linens are provided. The front porch has a pair of Adirondack chairs and makes a great place to observe the birds in the feeder or relax during a summer rain shower.
The lake at Green Valley is stocked with Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, & Rainbow Trout and provides many opportunities for outdoor fun. Row boating, fishing, relaxing on the dock, or strolling in the moonlight, make the lake one of our guests favorite locations! We also have several clearly marked hiking trails that take you beneath tall white pines, along Bear Creek, or through acres of white oak forest.
Another great thing about Green Valley is our location. We are only 3hrs from Pittsburgh, 2 hrs from D.C./Balti. area, 2 hrs. from Harrisburg, Pa., 5 hrs. from New York City, 4 hrs. from Philadelphia, Pa., 4 hrs. from Richmond, Va., and though our cottages are secluded, everything is nearby!

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.
