Why Lola chose Allegheny Mountains

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

Thank you so much for creating this lovely place.

My husband and I relished in the opportunity to explore Green Valley together.

We enjoyed all the hiking trails, crunching down the snowy paths, soaking

in the hot tub while taking in the clear, starry sky.

We cooked and ate our meals in absolute leisure, with no regard to schedules.

Curled up with books near the cozy fireplace.

We are looking forward to coming back in other seasons to see how this place

changes throughout the year.

The perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really needed a quiet weekend away, without the kids, and we couldn't have asked for better than what we found at Green Valley ... and the added bonus and ease of bringing our 2 dogs made things that much more enjoyable (for us and them). The area was truly a slice of heaven! We thoroughly enjoyed our few quite days taking walks around the property, seeing/hearing wildlife, relaxing with a book on the front porch, putting puzzles together, grilling out and eating smores every night, relaxing in the hot tub and watching DVDs . It was the perfect stress release from our crazy hectic lives and we cannot wait to go back ... next time we might even bring the kids along and check out one of the larger cabins. But for this past weekend Sophronia Cottage was the perfect fit for our private romantic getaway.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful property with us.

Perfect escape from the busy life!

  • 4 of 5

Booked this place for our anniversary and had a nice weekend away from our busy work lives. Enjoyed relaxing by the lake, fishing, and paddle boating. Our cottage was adorable, and the perfect size for the two of us with a private hot tub. We also enjoyed hiking the surrounding trails, although some were a little overgrown. It was the perfect escape and a great way to spend our anniversary. Peaceful and great scenery. I would love to enjoy another weekend here!

Batteries Recharged!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay and the peace, quiet, and beauty of the property. Unfortunately, we scheduled for the hottest week of the year...but, despite the heat and a bit of rain, we had some wonderful meals cooked over the charcoal grill. :o) The hot tub was super relaxing and the cottage had everything that we needed for our stay (including A/C!) We made good use of the scrabble board and puzzles. Best of all, our Westie, Blue, was SO happy to tag along on this trip.

We also saw a gorgeous buck and a large family of pheasants.

We look forward to visiting again sometime - maybe when the leaves are changing.

Thank you Lola for everything!

Wonderful spring getaway at Green Valley

  • 5 of 5

It has been too long since we stayed at Sophronia Cottage. We enjoyed the wild azaleas, carpets of wildflowers, the spring that cascades into the tranquil lake, the hot tub and of course the charming, cozy, welcoming cottage itself. Our cat and dog certainly enjoyed it as much as we did. This was their first visit. All of us had a great time. We even built a campfire in the stone ring to roast hotdogs and marshmallows. It was so peaceful and beautiful.
