Set in the historic camp meeting community of Mt. Gretna, this circa 1910 cottage is a restful break from the fast pace of modern life. It has been updated while retaining its historic charm. Some streets are pedestrian only and all are very narrow. Camp Meeting community is set in a canopy of trees over 100 years old in its' own micro climate- cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter- due to these beautiful trees. The cottage is rustic, eclectic, comfortable. Many books and games available. The cottage is located within walking distance of all Mt. Gretna has to offer such as the Lake, Jigger Shop, tennis courts, theater, playgrounds, hiking trails.

About K Neale
We live on a small farm 20 minutes from Mt. Gretna in Elizabethtown, PA. We raise sheep, alpacas, chickens, cats and 2 boys. The farm also has a historic mill, built in 1774, that we maintain as a museum of milling and agriculture. We have been renting a second farmhouse (#246632) on our farm for about 8 years and it has been an awesome experience meeting new people from all over the country and overseas.

Why K Neale chose Mount Gretna Heights
We love going to Mt. Gretna to see plays, take hikes and go out to eat so when the opportunity arose to buy a cottage, we jumped. This particular cottage appealed to us with its large comfortable front porch, peaceful location with no traffic and very vintage character.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage has an open floor plan downstairs with lots of windows which lends a more spacious feel. Upstairs is light and airy with 4 bedrooms and 1 large full bath. We updated some key features such as a totally new kitchen and new fixtures in the bathrooms while keeping the best parts such as the original cast iron claw foot bathtub and wooden walls. We chose not to install air conditioning, relying instead upon the natural coolness of the 100 year old tree canopy and fans. The cottage is decorated with mostly vintage furniture that is also comfortable. We hope you will find the cottage to be as charming and rejuvenating as we do. If guests have the time and interest, we offer a tour of our farm - you can feed the animals, see where your eggs came from, tour the historic mill, jump the rocks in the Conewago Creek. Just let us know if that's something you would like to do.
