Pennsylvania House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This lovely cabin is nestled off a private road on a wooded 3-acre lot. Sit on the screened-in porch and enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods. Relax inside and read or watch television. If the weather is cold, the new Amish electric stove will keep you warm and cozy.

Do you love the mountains? Do you like to bike, hike, swim, play golf, ski, snowboard? Are you interested in Civil War history?

Thousands of visitors each year come to the Gettysburg Battlefield to learn about our past and to remember those who gave 'the last full measure of devotion.' This cottage is only 20 minutes away from the unique town of Gettysburg.

Do you like winter sports? The Cozy Cottage is 25 min from Ski Liberty where guests can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and cross county skiing.

Situated in the middle of Adams County apple orchard country, the cottage is only minutes away from Michaux State Park and the Appalachian Trail. There is biking--both mountain and road biking, swimming and fishing at Fuller Lake and Laurel Lake. Like to golf? Drive 10 minutes to one course, 25 minutes to another.

The cabin is conveniently located 1 hour from Harrisburg, 2 hours from Washington DC and Baltimore, 1 1/2 hours from Amish Country in Lancaster County and 1 1/2 hours from Hershey Park.

A perfect spot for a couple get-away or family looking to enjoy all the fun activities the area has to offer.

About The Owner

Our family has owned this cabin for 30 years. Living in the DC area my wife and I discovered Adams county and fell in love with its beauty and the outdoor opportunities it provided. When our daughter was growing up we used this cabin and the one next door for all our vacations. We hiked many of the mountain trails, swam and fished in the lakes, skied at Ski Liberty, and explored the rich history of Gettysburg.

We love this cabin and take pride in providing a beautiful, peaceful retreat for our guests. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We could not have chosen a better place to stay for our first visit to Gettysburg and PA!! The screened porch was wonderful. We ate every meal there, read and just had great conversations. The location to Gettysburg was great; we saw beautiful countryside/farmland every day. This trip and cabin were blessings in many ways! We hope to come back to Gettysburg and Cozy Cottage soon!"

Very Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home in a beautiful area of Pennsylvania. The cottage had everything a person could need and more. We had a warm and cozy feeling from the moment we stepped into the screened in porch.We experienced nature at its best. Gettysburg was great. We needed more time to see the area, so we are already trying to plan a return trip. Barbara was wonderful to talk with. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with others.

Autumn Splendor at the Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our nine nights at the Cozy Cottage were far too short! This property is nestled in the woods, quiet, serene, and relaxing. Our hosts were superb, and the cottage had everything we needed, and was very clean. Absolutely the best! I would not hesitate to come again, or recommend it to others. Nothing fancy, but everything well appointed and efficient. We especially liked that the Links left many brochures about the area, and suggestions for shopping. We stayed at their other property, (The Cozy Cabin) two years ago, and this stay was even better! Loved the large screened porch, and the fabulous fall colors. The Amish fireplace kept us cozy in the cool eves. We were even visited by deer and wildlife. Well worth every penny! Thanks again! We'll be back, M and J Rafferty Seattle, WA

Autumn Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an October weekend at the Cozy Cottage, and what a find! It was warm and had everything a person could ever want, including washer and dryer and full kitchen. It's in the woods, off any main road. We went to battlefield and apple festival. We were there during height of apple season. We will be going back soon! Thanks to the owners for this magnificent getaway place.

Wonderful stay at the Cozy Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at the Cozy Cottage was perfect, but unfortunately too short. The property was exactly as described and I especially appreciated the Gettysburg pamphlets, etc. that were available for our use. The owners were quickly responsive to any questions we had and promptly returned our security deposit. If I ever get the chance to stay in the area again, I will definitely stay at the Cozy Cottage.

Outdoor lovers' paradise. Do you love to hike, bike, swim, ski, enjoy nature? This beautifully maintained cabin is close to lakes, wooded paths, and miles of hiking trails including the Appalachian trail. Explore one of our favorites--the waterfall hike to Lewis Rocks and see if you can discover the treasure that is said to be hidden among the rock formations. In the winter drive 20 min to Ski Liberty and enjoy skiing, snowboarding, or cross country. In warmer weather sit on the screened in porch and relax while listening to the birds and trees. Drive 20 min to Gettysburg and spend the day immersed in Civil War history. This cozy cabin has it all!
