Nestled above Curwensville Lake, the cottage is in a country setting, next to the host home, yet only about 12 miles from Interstate 80.It will sleep up to four with a queen-size bed in loft and a sleeper couch in the front room. It has HD satellite flatscreen TV with DVD player, a fully equipped kitchen,keurig, outdoor grilling area, hot tub, and a relaxing tree swing overlooking the lake and beautiful West Branch of the Susquehanna River Valley. Wildlife (such as turkey, whitetail deer, grouse, and an occasional black bear) abounds in central PA and often make appearances around the cottage. Even Bald Eagles often soar in the valley as their nest is directly below the cottage.
This charming country cottage was completed in 2011 and is within the PA Wilds part of central Pennsylvania. Besides fishing and boating at the lake other attractions are also nearby: such as elk viewing, Punxsutawney Phil, Penn State football, amish, golfing, sightseeing the state forests of Penns Woods, etc...
We can't begin to thank you enough for this perfect getaway. You have an amazing home, thank you for sharing that with us. this is the ideal get away I needed to take a step back from my daily life on the ground in Afghanistan. Also if you haven't taken the opportunity to go explore Pennscave, I highly reccommend it. We will definitely be reccommending your cottage to our friends. May God bless you and your family.
P.S. Please keep me in your prayers as I travel back over seas.
This place was a perfect weekend getaway for us and had all the amenities we needed. We brought a lot of our own food but we stopped at a local store about 10 minutes away for some things we forgot. We cooked in the grill mostly but made breakfast inside. Also nearby we went to a great brewery and two wineries. It was so relaxing sitting in the porch each morning or by the fire pit in the evening. Would love to live in that setting.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. The cottage is beautifully decorated and was very comfortable for the two of us. I believe the arrangement of the furniture in the living room has changed slightly since the pictures were taken, but I think it's an improvement. We enjoyed eating at the small table in front of the window, but most of our time was spent outdoors enjoying the beautiful views of the lake. The owners were home, and although their house is close to the cottage, it felt quite private. We enjoyed the beautiful, quiet surroundings. Our weekend was hot but the air conditioning worked great, and the outdoor breezes kept us comfortable. We hope to return again!
We greatly enjoyed our stay here. The view is incredible and we enjoyed staring out at it from the porch and hot tub. The house is very close but caused no problem. Our big surprise was the kitchen- there are no pictures so we did not realize how small it was- it is basically the same size as the bathroom. There is virtually no counter space to work on (it is a galley kitchen with stove, dish drain, wide sink, then small square of counter that has coffee maker on it) so do not plan to actually make a meal here. Originally we thought there was no place to eat inside but realized later that there is a small table with 2 stools under it in the living room. This did not cause us a problem as the weather was good and they have a covered outside eating area. The loft bedroom is low- I am 5 foot and hit my head several times- (my husband decided to sleep downstairs). If you are taller than 5 foot you can enter the bedroom ducking slightly and walk straight to the bed but cannot walk around the bed. (it is A frame upstairs so the ceiling slants down on both sides. The air conditioner is in the wall but we had no trouble keeping the place cool. Bathroom is spacious and beautiful. It is well supplied with what you need. They do need to update their instructions for the fire pit but they have already replied to our note on this so are obviously very responsive.
My husband and I visited for our mini-honeymoon and loved the place. It was cozy inside and beautiful outside. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch listening to the rain (not even rain could ruin our time spent there!), enjoying breakfast in the nook and the beautiful views from the hot tub and fire pit.
Beautiful, comfortable cottage with an outstanding view, private and peaceful and the perfect weekend getaway. Truly enjoyed my stay here, I would highly recommend to anyone! Great, romantic spot. Can't wait to come back!
The cottage is beautuful inside and out. My wife and I drew so much inspiration from the decor and layout. You should find it very cozy and well equipped. We enjoyed the outside seating overlooking the lake . For those who enjoy gardening, taking a stroll around the property should give you plenty of eye candy.
