All plumbing and heating systems are new, with new bathroom fixtures, an efficient central heat pump for both heating and cooling, and individual room temperature controls. On a cold winters night, the stone fireplace with low maintenance gas insert provides for additional heat and ambiance.
A big attraction of this property is the access to the outdoors. A large multi-level wrap around deck provides outdoor living space, and sits high above the bubbling trout stream in the valley below. The deck is built around a hemlock tree, which provides for pleasant summer shade. Huge rock outcroppings, mountain laurel, and ferns surround the property. Private trails provide access to a mountain spring and the stream, available for fishing (class 1 trout stream). The property is private, and backs to hundreds of acres of undeveloped mountain resort property. A trail leads directly to the adjoining state park, with lake, sand beach, and numerous hiking and picnic options.
A sun room provides a lovely place to enjoy the outdoors, even if the weather is not cooperative. With windows on 3 sides, rustic timber walls, and very a comfortable Lloyd Flanders Wicker set, it oozes with cottage charm!

It was perfect
I had a girls weekend in the Laurel Highlands and Rockcliffe cottage fit the bill. Would definitely stay there again, highly recommend it.
Thanks much for your review. You are welcome back any time!
We spent a weekend at this cute home and it was perfect for our getaway celebration with friends and family. Dave, the owner, was great with communication and fast with a reply. The home was very clean, cute and quaint.
We loved the view in the back with the fire pit and hanging night lights. Plus a picnic table on the covered porch was very convenient.
They also had ample starter supplies which was very much appreciated. Newer appliances also a perk.
We hope to plan another trip here again in the near future! There was great hiking, fishing and picturesque views. Be sure to make reservations at the nearby restaurant, Out of the Fire. 👍��
Thanks for a super time at Rockcliffe Cottage!
