Perfect Little Romantic Retreat

This upscale cabin was clean and well maintained. The photos supplied do a good job of representing it. One thing that is not clear, and you might want to know, is that even though the master bedroom is on the main level, there are a couple of steps from the living room to go up to the master bedroom and the bathroom.
The bed is really comfortable—and this is coming from someone who has a tempurpedic at home! There is also a gas fireplace (stove) in the bedroom. French doors open onto a deck.
The bathroom is gorgeous. We had no problems with hot water, there was plenty. The shower is big enough for two, and there is a place to sit down in the shower area. Towels, washcloths, floor mats are not included with the rental.
All in all, the cabin and its surroundings are every bit as picturesque as the photos supplied show. The creek really IS that close! Also, it is within walking distance to the Susquehanna River.
It may be due to the time of year that we stayed there, but, we did not notice a single car going down the road while we were there. I'm sure there had to have been, as we were there three days, but I never heard or saw one.
The best description is secluded and quiet, but with all the comforts of home. Everything worked, the dishwasher, the oven, etc. One tip is to not turn off the gas fireplace in the kitchen. We did the first night (they have a little placard posted on wall, but we didn't notice it until morning) We got the hang of getting it to relight, but really would be better just to let it stay on. There is a thermostat.
The fireplace in the living room is converted to gas, it is easy to turn on and off. Its is stone and if not "massive" its quite large. The photos just don't do it justice. If you arrive at night, like we did, and you're looking for more light, there are pull chains to the ceiling fan lights.
Keep in mind that this is located in Wrightsville, PA not Lancaster. We had no intentions of sightseeing, we arrived for our stay with groceries, previously prepared food, wine, beer, the whole shebang. As we did not come with the intention of dining out, and seeing historic Lancaster, I really can't give an opinion on these activities. If the goal is to have peace and quiet, walk in the woods, have the dog be allowed to come too, and to stay in a comfortable clean, nicely decorated cabin that has wi-fi and cable TV—this property is ideal
