About Chris Peeples

I was born on a 1797 farm between the historic villages of Kimberton and Chester Springs. Surrounded by two-thousand acres, the farm was instrumental in starting my home-grown business - Vixen Hill (farm) Mfg. Co., now a world supplier of cedar gazebos, shutters, pavilions and 3-season modular porch systems. A porch system and shutters appear on the farm VRBO rental in Chester Springs #197851. I am an avid supporter of open space & historic places believing in leaving a minimal earthly footprint.

Chris Peeples purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Chris Peeples chose Chester Springs

My children were born on a property within the nearby village of Yellow Springs. I've rented the main house and artist's studio since 1995 when I moved with my family back to the family farm. There were so many fond memories of life in the village that I've kept it as a possible place for future retirement. The newly renovated studio with it's vaulted ceiling and balcony bedroom make a perfect place to escape for a romantic weekend.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique benefits of the the 'Village' include ice cream Sundays, horse & carriages, various spa buildings to explore, museum, art lessons, library, walking paths, summer concerts, art shows, restaurant/catering, and historic ruins. There's the 'Hallman's corner store', Kimberton Bistro, gristmill, local whole-foods store and over 20 quality restaurants within a ten minute drive. And, the general population is intelligent, above average people with something to say. What else could you want?

Gorgeous setting, Charming details! Some room for improvement.

  • 4 of 5
What a gorgeous setting for this super cozy studio! The place is packed with creative details throughout. It was a quiet and very peaceful stay. We brought our two little dogs with us and the huge yard was perfect for their little walks :).

Areas for improvement: The kitchen window doesn't lock or close properly (it appears as thought it's a work in progress), not so great when leaving valuables (and beloved dogs) behind for the day. The sofa is extremely uncomfortable, but we didn't spend a lot of time sitting on it, so it's not a deal breaker. A full length mirror would definitely be a plus if the property manager can incorporate one somewhere in the future. Coffee maker needs to be replaced.

Overall a great place to stay, it would be difficult find a prettier setting or a more quaint rental than this one.

This place is awesome!

We stayed in both the main house and the cottage. Everything was wonderful. When I walked in I thought I was in a bed and breakfast. Also, it was so homey that within minutes you feel like you want to invite friends in and entertain. I would recommend these two houses to anyone!

We arrived at the cottage after arriving from Australia (25 hours of flying), driving on the opposite side of the road compared to what we are used to and in the rain from New York. When we arrived light classical music was playing on the stereo and fresh flowers were on the table. It was a lovely start to the vacation after an exhausting trip to get there. The cottage was beautifully furnished and in a lovely area. It contained everything that we needed to base ourselves in the area. Chris was an excellent host, providing us with lots of information on the history of the area and what to see. We had a very good time here.

This cute cottage was just the thing for us. It was a great get -a-way. It was charming and updated. I loved the new kitchen.
It was a cold weekend, it even snowed. One side of the cottage wasn't finished and it felt drafty and cold. The bathroom was newly tiled and looked great too, but the shower was cold then hot then cold again. So I hope the fix the water heater soon. They said they would :) I would definitely recommend this to others wanting a quiet secluded place. It was in a quaint little village, yet so close to restaurants, outlet malls, and historical venus. I would definitely go again!
