I found this place when I was searching for pet friendly places in PA. to celebrate my husbands 30th birthday. His wish was to go some place that it will remind him of back home in Europe and it was exactly that. What helped in choosing this place was that Chris was extremely friendly when I called to inquire about any rules for the dog. We rented the Covered Bridge Cottage and it was beautiful. Very charming and the way is it furnished it makes you feel at home. My favorite part was the beautiful colored kitchen and the bathroom. I've seen some old pictures that someone posted here of the bathroom and that was a concern but it has been renovated and it looks completely new and it was very clean. It has wood floor, lot's of clean towels, great smelling soap and a gorgeous old fashion sink. The only downside to the cottage was that we didn't know that we couldn't cell phone reception there (t.mobile) until we had to make a call and couldn't. We realized we could use wifi calling but for someone that is not familiar with that option or to some older people that have older phones it might be a problem especially if there is an emergency. Also the wifi only worked if you were in the house. It would be great if they can extend the coverage area and make it secure with a password and put a house phone that can connect to the main house. If it's a concern I am sure you can speak to them and I have a feeling that they will find a way to accommodate everyone the best they can. Besides that minor issue everything was great. The surroundings were beautiful and peaceful even though it is located in a park. There is parking for park visitors right outside the door and a port a potty which was a bit uncomfortable but there were not a lot of people coming in and out so it turned out just fine. There are several grills close to the cottage and it was great weather for barbecue which we did. Not knowing that almost everything is closed on Sunday we didn't have charcoal but Chris was very nice and gave us a bag and told us were we can find places that are open. Chris was very helpful the entire weekend and she made our and our stay daschund very welcoming. She loves dogs and that was a very big plus for us. Hopefully we can go back soon and enjoy another great weekend at the cottage.
