This place is perfect for a couple wanting to get away. Whether you're coming from Philadelphia or places north, it's very convenient. The owner and manager have done a great job of preparing the property for guests, with jazz playing as we walked in.
They not only provided linens and paper goods, but also had soaps and conditioners, thoughtfully placed candles, and coffee for the Nespresso machine. There is also a wood shed on the property, so keeping the fire going was a snap.
Across their walking bridge is a path that leads to their private pond complete with two chairs on the dock and a canoe. (A little too cold for that this trip.)
Beware of a few details:
1. The place is close to the road. Even though there were few cars, there was a small amount of road noise.
2. The place is old, which is part of its charm. But that also means it can be a bit cold in winter. Bring heavy socks to keep your feet warm.
3. The biggest surprise was that their's a "studio" (small cabin) sharing the drive. I suspect it's the owner's getaway. No one was there during our stay, but we were a bit surprised, as I don't recall seeing it in any of the pictures.
Thanks for the kind words, Jed, AND for the feedback!
As mentioned in the listing, there IS a studio on property that is never occupied while there are guests in the cabin. Just wanted to clarify in case anyone had a concern.
Thanks again and hope to have you folks back one day!! :)
The most magical little cabin I’ve ever stayed out. Will be back!
Great place to stay
Great place to stay! Was very cozy and exactly what we were hoping for. Would definitely return!
Charming cabin with lovely scenery; would visit again.
Relaxing and fun
Had a great time with the family!
This place was fantastic! The cabin was clean, cozy and romantic. The outside is just perfect. I look forward to coming back in the summer!
