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.

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!

Check out our facebook page for photos from that long ago time..I think you'll agree that Green Valley just gets better and better. I hope to have you return soon...our valley is beautiful in Fall and winter, too. Thanks again. Lola

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.

Had the place to ourselves

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a secluded get away and that's what we got for our 1 year anniversary! Saphronia was adorable, and just what we wanted. I really appreciated all the decor details that made the cottage much more charming than a typical bare bones rental cabin. It is a very special place. The hot tub was what led us to Green Valley in the first place, and was very clean and well done.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Ann, for telling others about your Oct. stay at Sophronia Cottage. I'm happy too, that you mentioned the décor...I have a lot of fundecorating my cottages....my Mom used to say that they are little doll houses...It's nice to know that my attention to detail is appreciated. I'm looking forward to having you return to Green Valley soon...the cottages are all dressed up in their winter décor ....and the hot tubs are waiting. I wish you a very Merry Christmas. Lola

Seclusion and Reconnection

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I grabbed a quick getaway this past weekend at Sophronia Cottage and couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more! All of Green Valley is breathtaking; especially in the fall. The surroundings and small cottage touches made us feel so relaxed and welcomed. It truly helped us reconnect as a couple. The seclusion provided by the 75 acres allowed us to disconnect from our every day lives while the cottages still contained all of the comforts of home. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the falling leaves and unwinding in the hot tub at the end of the evening.....all while feeling like we were the only couple for miles!!! Depending on your location, it is not a far drive to be considered a quick getaway yet makes you feel so isolated. The owners have a great thing here and all of their personal touches were noted and appreciated. We will highly recommend this to friends (or maybe not, and keep our little secret!) Small stores and restaurants are a short drive away to either Hancock, MD or Berkley Springs, WV.
