Welcome to “The Cottage”. We hope you enjoy this quiet and clean retreat located in the beautiful countryside of Pennsylvania. The area is known for its rich German heritage and is dotted with stone barns, working farms, and orchards. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are endless hiking/biking trails, golf courses, and skiing. For those seeking access to world-class restaurants, theater, and orchestra, Philadelphia is less than an hour away.

The space
The cottage has a cabin-like feel with its pine wainscoting and ceiling.

Please Note: Even though Wi-Fi doesn’t reach the cottage, you will still be able to screen-mirror your favorite programs and movies from your smartphone to the smart TV in the living room. Board games and cards are located under the coffee table.

The “kitchenette” is not plumbed and is not set-up for cooking. However, it is an area for you to prepare a morning coffee and to keep beverages and/or small grocery item refrigerated. The “kitchenette” is equipped with a mini-refrigerator, microwave, and coffee machine. We also supply coffee (ground and instant), coffee filters, paper towels, cups, plates, bowls, and recyclable utensils.
