Stayed here twice, once in the stone house in the state park, and once in the house itself. The covered bridge cottage in the park is in a beautiful setting--a little park set back from the road, with a stream and fields. (Unfortunately the park keeps a small dumpster and porta- potty within sight of the entry). During the day and late at night, you hear the horse and buggies going across the adjacent covered bridge.The cottage is spacious, with a well-equipped kitchen and basic country furnishings—I liked it.
If you want something frillier, you can stay in the main house. I’d ask for a room in the back of the house, as the road in the front of the house gets a fair amount of traffic. But you do see the occasional horse and buggy from your room if you’re in the front. Furnishings and antiques and quilts are all beautiful in the house and rooms. The back of the house has a beautiful view of Pennsylvania farm country. TV is old, but what are you doing watching TV? Four course breakfast is served at 9, and it is really something to look forward to. Using local ingredients, co-owner Chris puts a lot of effort into making it special. She and Jim are very friendly and helpful while not overly intrusive. I’d highly recommend it and expect to return.
