Allegheny Mountains Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms - 1 and half bathrooms - sleeps 4.

Lory Cottage is our lakeside cottage; a lovely two story, two bedroom getaway located at the end of the lane. It's the perfect place for pedal boating, fishing, tubing, or just relaxing by the water! Amenities : Living room w/gas fireplace, eat in kitchen, TV w/DVD player (no TV reception), Am/Fm radio CD player, electric baseboard heat, central a/c, full bath downstairs w/1/2 bath upstairs, full size stack washer/dryer, 2 bedrooms upstairs - both w/queen size beds, sundeck upstairs accessed from both bedrooms, living room deck with hot tub, large front porch, and charcoal grill by the front yard. Lory Cottage is fully furnished, and has all of your necessary bed and bath linens and pillows.

About Green Valley Cottages: While our main priority at Green Valley is to offer you a secluded, private vacation; we are not the stereotypical cabin in the woods. Our cottages are cozy, but light; decorated in the cottage style of pastels and florals. Each cottage has their own private gas or electric log fireplace and hot tub; the perfect places to relax after an equaling relaxing day. They also have their own fully equipped kitchens stocked with everything from the refrigerator to the tea towels. Each cottage also has a private campfire area and charcoal grill, as well as 2 bicycles.

We've tried to provide everything you need for the ultimate relaxing experience. This is your vacation; all you have to do is come!

About the Property: Our 75 acre property is the perfect place to find peace and quiet. Originally founded in the 1960s as a campground, Green Valley was reinvented and reopened as our cottage getaway in 1996. For the past 15 years, hundreds of guests have experienced the simple beauty that is Green Valley.

The lake at Green Valley is 3 acres in size and ranges in depth from 4 ft. to 16 ft. Stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish the lake is a favorite with everyone. A floating dock gives easy access to the pedal boat and rowboat and a fishing dock with Adirondack chairs makes a great place to soak up some sun, read, or throw in a line!

The hills and valleys of the property are filled with marked hiking trails for your enjoyment. On a spring day, discover a small waterfall on Smith Run Trail or question the origins of an old abandoned fence on Split Rail Trail. Fill your pockets with wild raspberries in the summertime as you meander down Bill's Trail and rediscover again the simple pleasures of life.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Allegheny Mountains

Awe, Lory Cottage---to sit beside our 2.5 acre lake and just do nothing--that's what you need. Sit in the hot tub and watch the Canadian land on the lake each spring.

Watch the fish jump--drop a line and catch a few. Each room has a lake view, and the upstairs bedroom balcony is the place to star gaze.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent Thanksgiving at the Lory. We’ve been several times and absolutely love it. It’s are new home away from home!!! My eight year old cried when it was time to go. Thank you for providing such a peaceful haven!

We stayed July 11-15th, 2007 and this cottage was absolutely beautiful! The decor was stunning. It was so peaceful and serene, we didn't want to leave. Nothing beats sitting out on the deck at night in the jacuzzi listening to the sounds of the night. Anyone who rents one of the cottages of Green Valley will be thoroughly pleased. I brought my dog and he was in his glory. You will have one tired pooch when you leave there. It took 4 days after we got back for him to recoop! We couldn't have picked a better place for a get-a-way!

Great Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lory Cottage was the perfect getaway for us from the DC busyness, and our animals loved it there. All three of our dogs swam during our week, and our cats even got to enjoy the outdoors from the top balcony. We definitely plan on making it an annual activity.

We would recommend probably just having more dvds on hand in each cottage for when the weather gets too bad to really do much outside. We didn't really have an issue with it, but some people probably would like to take the trip just to sit in.

We'd prefer to keep this a place secret but fair is fair. We simply love it and it is at least as nice as advertised.

Owner's Response: I know what you mean, Tom and Leia...I'd like to keep Green Valley all to myself, too, but sharing it with so many wonderful guests is fun, too. Thank you so very much for once again being such wonderful guests, and for taking time to tell other about Green Valley. Lola

We absolutely loved Lory Cottage at Green Valley. My husband and I brought our almost 2 year old son and 2 pugs. Everyone felt right at home immediately. Very neat, clean, peaceful, and relaxing. We enjoyed having a fire by the lake, walking on the trails, soaking in the hot tub under the stars, and having a glass of wine in front of the indoor fire place. The house was secluded and our dogs loved running free. So thankful a place like this exists. We can't wait to return for our next getaway.

This place was great! I surprised my girlfriend for her 30th birthday with this little trip for us and the two dogs. We got back on Sunday, as I write this it is Tuesday, and the dogs are still passed out at home! All 4 of us loved it! The dogs were in heaven with all of the trails. We made sure to walk every trail at least once, including many walks around the lake. My only regret was the lake was frozen, so I did not get much fishing in. I did try a little in the creek, but didn't even see a fish yet alone get a bite. This property was a perfect place to just get away from the real world. No cable, internet, and I put my cell phone on airplane mode for the entire weekend. We enjoyed the hot tub at night. Even with the snow, I eventually (took three attempts) got a nice campfire going by the lake...and I didn't cheat by using anything like gasoline :). The cottage itself was great! We just loved the entire weekend, and we plan on coming back with friends and family. I still need to fish in that lake!

Lory Cottage is located just 6 miles off of Interstate 70 near Warfordsburg, Pa. We are 1.5 hrs. west of the D.C./Baltimore,Md. area and 2.5 hrs. east of Pittsburgh, Pa. It is a tri-state area and is close to Hancock, Md. and Berkeley Springs, WV. We are in one of the most rural counties in the country, but are close to outlet shopping, malls, theaters, and snow skiing. The C&O Canal, Potomac River, and a 20 mile hard surfaced bike trail are all nearby. Although there is much to do in the area, most of our guests find our cottage and property is where they want to stay. We have been providing this getaway property since 1995 and have many return guests. The quiet seclusion and natural beauty of this property are hard to find. You cannot see another house from Lory Cottage. As owners, our main desire is to keep the property as undeveloped as possible, so our guests can enjoy the natural beauty all around them.
