About Sales at Turning Leaf Vacation Rentals
In the mid-1990s Bob and Susan Fleming acquired two dilapidated log cottages along fayette springs road in chalk hill, pa. As director of a major area tourist attraction, susan fleming recognized the value of these properties both historically and economically but it was challenging to get anyone to agree to restore rather than demolish the houses, which were built in the 1930’s as hunting camps and abandoned to the elements for years. With the help of some resourceful contractors, the couple was able to transform the cottages into the luxuriously rustic retreats you see today. The first cottage to welcome tourists opened in 1997 and the second in 2005. The flemings treasure their little piece of history and have enjoyed hosting visitors from all over the world for nearly 20 years. Automobiles and airplanes have replaced the boats and trains, a world-class spa has replaced the fayette springs, but the experiences of iconic architecture, pristine wilderness, exceptional white water, and unrivaled trails continue to draw tourists to our region.
Sales at Turning Leaf Vacation Rentals purchased this Cottage in 1995
Why Sales at Turning Leaf Vacation Rentals chose Farmington
The property on which the cottages (Springs House is the 'sister' property to the Creek House) are located is the site of the original Fayette Springs, a popular resort and spa to which tourists flocked in the mid 1800’s. According to advertisements in the “genius of liberty,” a local newspaper from that period, people came from all over the east by train to Ohiopyle or boat to Brownsville, then by horse and buggy to partake of the health benefits of the water in the stream that runs behind the cabins. The water was guaranteed to cure all sorts of ailments. All that remains of the original spa are photos and some artifacts; a hand-carved stone basin, stone columns, a large stone slab with graffiti depicting names and dates from the period, and a fresh-water well that is dug into the mountainside.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Creek House provides a luxuriously quiet experience for that discerning small family or a couples retreat from the city while still being close to all the activity centers associated with the Ohiopyle area.

Beautiful Long Weekend
This is the second time we stayed at the property. The last time was 14 years ago when our daughter was 2; she is now 16 and has 2 sisters. We love the cabin for it’s perfect location - easy to get to Ohiopyle, Kentuck Knob and Fort Necessity - and for its mix of classic cabin and modern design.
Love to hear that you were able to enjoy our place a "2nd time"--this time with time with your daughter being older. Well said on the mix of classic cabin and modern design...really true! Come back again soon--no need to wait another 14 years for a return trip. :)
I booked this cabin for 3 nights for a short visit to Fallingwater. It wasn't long before I wished I had booked a longer stay. The cabin is a perfect base camp for nearby activities or just to hang out for R&R. Clean, spacious rooms in a beautiful setting. It's definitely on my radar for a repeat visit.
Thank you for your kind words and guest stay! We hope you can return and linger longer next time!
Plenty of Room
Our family of four enjoyed the extra space compared with a hotel room. The location was just right for the activities we had planned. One of the bedrooms had a high window without a shade, and since we are not early risers on vacation, the light coming in affected our sleep. Bed was really comfortable, though. A sign asked us to do our dishes (property has a dishwasher, but we didn't use that many dishes so we handwashed) and take out the trash, which seemed odd to me. Part of the beauty of being on vacation is not having to do these things. Finally, I would gave appreciated having bar soap and shampoo provided. Staying in a vacation rental was new for our family, so we didn't know to bring these things. Having to sign a rental agreement with a separate company seemed confusing.
Thank you for your review. Glad to have your first vacation rental experience!
Since a vacation rental is NOT a hotel there are things that each guest should expect to help out with maintaining our wonderful home (like doing your dishes or taking the garbage out etc). In a hotel, onsite housekeeping would attend to these, but, generally, not at a vacation rental. We have in the past provided soaps and shampoos; but, honestly we have received feedback about some guests not liking the selections---everyone has a preference here--which is great--but, it is just simpler for guests just to bring their own (again different from a hotel).
And rental agreements are pretty standard across the industry. Stay in the Outer Banks, NC, Sandbridge, VA or Avalaon NJ in a vacation rental and expect a lease agreement. Double check your lease. It was with the owner of the property. Not a separate company. Again, not something you would have with a hotel.
Thanks for your stay.
Secluded feel, but close to everything
We had a Frank Lloyd Wright weekend. The cabin is comfortable, kitchen well appointed, grill and seating area on deck, fire ring with chairs, wifi, what's not to like. It was close to Fort Necessity and Kentuck Knob. Only minutes away from Falling Water and Polymath Park.
Thank you for staying with us! So, glad you were able to enjoy the FLW experiences within the area. Come back again any time!
Sweet cabin in the woods
We loved staying at this cabin, reunion with old friends, the large back deck overlooking the woods and creek was perfect for catching up. Fire flies! Also enjoying hiking and rafting Ohio Pyle, Biking Confluence, caves at Laurel Cavern, Fort Necessity and a wonderful drive up to Mount Davis. Very convenient to all, a couple good restaurants nearby Highly recommend ! Hope to return!
Thank you for staying with us! We certainly appreciate it as well as your detailed review! The fire flies are nice treat in June-July every year---enjoying them off the back deck is the best! Hope to have you back!
Beautiful property. The bathroom could use some towel bars and the inside of bathroom door was really dirty. Bedrooms don’t have AC, so could have used ceiling fans in there (was quite stuffy). Beds were comfortable and kitchen was nice, well stocked and had great views of the backyard and woods. So enjoyed the deck and fire pit areas! Exactly what we needed, very peaceful. Owner was so nice.
