Curwensville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Loft bedroom, 1 full bathroom, 1 full kitchen, 1 front room, sleeps 2-4

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...

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

The cottage was everything the website promised and more.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful mountain cottage overlooking the Curwensville Lake. The pictures on the website are a perfect representation of the cottage and the spectacular view. Every corner of the cottage was quaintly decorated, inside and out. Kitchen was well stocked. Linens were abundant. Very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the view from the living room, side porch and from the hot tub. The cottage is close to the host home, but our privacy never felt compromised. This rental was a perfect get-a-way!!!

Amazing view, beautiful, quiet, serene

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our honeymoon and was blown away at the view. The cottage is perfect for 2 adults wanting a quiet, relaxing getaway. We wasn't sure if we would see the eagle and we saw her soaring above the water and trees 4 times. We loved sitting by the fire watching the sun go down, along with being in the hot tub was relaxing. Very romantic setting. Would definitely book again with the hostess.

Thumbs up

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a really great time. The cottage was well equipped and the view was amazing. We brought our boat and enjoyed some fishing. We spent some time at the pub/restaurant Hangars right down the road. The food was pretty good and the bartender was a doll. Overall our weekend was a success and will look forward to booking another stay here.

Great stay at the dancing crow!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at the dancing crow cottage for our 30th anniversary celebration. We really enjoyed the setting even though it was quite foggy in the morning while we were there. It was real peaceful sitting in the hot tub in the evening looking at the stars and listening to nature calling out to one another. The cottage was quite comfortable for the two of us and met our every need. I would definitely recommend staying here, very nice!

Beautiful property in a relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

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.
