I cannot say enough positive about this cottage! It is decorated exquisitely and every detail considered. The hosts were also very lovely to talk to. It is clean, quiet, spacious, and lovely.

We (a family of four) just spent a very nice weekend at Fernwalk Cottage in Addison PA, to use as a staging point to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. The cottage is actually a renovated craftsman-style ranch home. The two-bedroom cottage has pleasant curb appeal and looks inviting from the outside. On the inside it is even better. The proprietors... more
