Why Lola chose Warfordsburg

Green Valley 75 acre property is perfect---you may explore,

savor, experience-- quiet forest, green grassy meadows, sparkling streams, wild life and star lit skies. Take a hike, ride a bike, paddle a boat, stare at the sky, hear a bee buzz--yes you really can! It is your time, your cottage, your Green Valley.

What makes this cottage unique

Sophronia sits along Bear Creek and has a beautifully treed front lawn with bonfire area, charcoal grill and picnic table.

Two bicycles await your enjoyment.

The lake at Green Valley is stocked with Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am a city girl, usually afraid of the forest, and my husband is the outdoor kind of person. We weren't able before to find a spot where we could have what each of us wanted for a vacation.

This place has just everything we were looking for.

Although we came during winter time, we had a blast.

We have very stressful jobs, but the hot tub, having the opportunity to read a good book peacefully or just playing with the pup on the porch, made us forget about the craziness of our lives in the city.

The only bad thing about staying here is that we have to leave.

Can we just stay forever??

We are going to recommend this place to all our friends.

Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5

My Green Valley is a very special place. We stayed at Sophronia Cottage and it was just perfect for a quiet family get away. Beautiful property and the Cottage was thoughtfully equipped and sweetly decorated. We loved every moment. We loved it so much, we're coming back in the summer. Enjoy!

Perfect Cottage and beautiful scenery!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cottage over a weekend with our two pups. It couldn't have been easier to get away from it all. We drove up a beautiful snowy road and looked at the ice covered creek and icicles! The gate had sand over the snow to ensure guests don't fall. That's exactly what you get here, owners who think of everything. The cottage was easy to get to. Salt was already down on the steps to the house to melt the ice. There was extra ice melt and a snow shovel. The cottage was spotless and decorated beautifully! The kitchen is well stocked and it was very easy to make our meals. The fireplace in the bedroom is amazing! You aren't going to be chilly, it keeps you toasty! The hot tub of course is a great way to spend time outside without freezing! We enjoyed watching the birds come get food from the feeder right next to us. The owners even left bird seed, they think of everything! You can't go wrong with renting this house, especially for the price. There isn't any cell service or WiFi but that is what we were looking for. Thank you to the owners, we'll be back!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. So quiet and relaxing. I did not want to leave. I can not wait to return next year. This was one of the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. There is nothing better than sitting in the hot tub as it is snowing.

Green Valley - Wonderful as Always!

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Green Valley Cottages several times each year with my canine companions since February 2007. I've seen the valley in all four seasons and enjoy each and every one! The best thing is that all the cottages are dog-friendly and non-smoking! Each is fully supplied with everything you need (other than food) - and with no TV or computer access, one can truely relax and enjoy the beauty of nature around them. There are hiking trails and a lake (with boats) for those who enjoy something active to do - and a fireplace and hot tub at each cottage for those who prefer to do nothing. Lola has provided a nice selection of books for the cottages - what could be better than swinging in a hammock reading away on a pleasant afternoon? The dogs enjoy the freedom to run off-leash (or on a drag line for a hound) and capture all the great smells. Berkeley Springs is a 30 minute drive away - with various spa services (especially Atasia Spa) and good food (Tari's.) There is no place my dogs and I would rather be...

Sophrinia Cabin

  • 2 of 5

The cabin was secluded and quiet...just what we were wanting. On arrival we found the housekeeping to be underwhelming. We were informed when reserving we would have to strip the bed and wash all linens. When we went to bed Friday night we discovered that housekeeping doesn't make beds either. They also don't dust. The fan in the bedroom was filthy, the exhaust fan in the bathroom was completely clogged up with dust, the shelve area on the outside of the shower was dusty and had hair laying on the surface, the coffee pot was not only dusty on the top but also inside, there was a bug under the coffee pot and the windowsills needed to be swept with a vacuum (there were dead bugs on the sills), air conditioner was broke and the porch & furniture should have been swept with a broom. I grew up staying at a cottage that my grandparents owned I was not expecting the Taj Mahal but for the price cleanliness should not have been an issue.

Owner's Response: We are happy that our guest enjoyed the seclusion and quiet of Green Valley, and we do look forward to her return. We appreciate her honest critiquing of the housekeeping and also that she listed items that need our immediate attention. I have personally addressed this issue with our cleaning staff, and have, personally, attended to any cleaning that I felt needed done. All bed and bath linens are provided for our guests' convenience at no additional fee. Bed sheets are left folded on top of the bed so that our guests know that the bedding is freshly laundered, and ready for their use. This guest's comments have been helpful as we strive to maintain our cottages in the best possible condition for my guests' enjoyment. The Management of Green Valley Cottages

Just Priceless!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in everyway. Having our two Beagles with us, and riding the bikes running behind us...priceless! Sitting on the dock, wasting time. Priceless. Firepit when the sun goes down, smores, just listening...priceless!

Thank you for the memories...I love this place!
