About William and Marianne Roberts

My wife and I grew up coming to The Mount Gretna Lake in the summer time. My uncle owned a summer home which I would visit and my Grand Parents always wanted a summer home here but never made it happen. When the opportunity to buy our cottage presented itself we moved on it and have never regretted our decision.

William and Marianne Roberts purchased this cottage in 1998

Why William and Marianne Roberts chose Pennsylvania

Very Cute romantic cottage in the woods. Very close to all the activity in Mount Gretna. Theater-Playhouse, Lake, Jigger Shop, Hideaway, Gift Shop, Playground Basketball Court

What makes this cottage unique

Cottage sits high above the street and reminds you of a very nice tree house. Cottage was built in the 1890s and still holds that original romantic charm.

Perfect cottage for a family of 3-4.

  • 3 of 5

This cottage fit our family of four perfectly. One child slept on the sleeping porch. The shabby chic decor, the comfortable beds, and stocked kitchen made our stay lovely. The porch is large and fit 14 of our family for a potluck dinner. It would be nice to have more light over the kitchen table. There is a chandelier but no way to turn it on. The rug on the 2nd floor is worn and although the kitchen and refrigerator were clean, the house was a bit dusty.

Owner's Response: Hi thanks for your review. The light over the dining room table works but you need to turn on the switch that is located on the side of the staircase. I had left you a voice mail about the location of the switch which maybe you did not receive. I will agree that the carpet upstairs is definately worn and should be replaced. We try to keep the cottage very clean but with multiple renters and a cleaning service apparently they did not do the best job dusting. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and we will try and use your comments to improve. Thanks

Everything I thought it would be and more!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing long weekend at this cottage! It was in a very small quite mountain town and so much to do was within walking distance. We ate at a couple different restaurants, played mini golf, hung out by the lake and most importantly got to relax! We unplugged from the internet and tv, it was perfect! I strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing getaway, there's also a lot for kids to do and would make for a nice family trip as well. We will most definitely be going back!

Everything about the property was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The setting on the wooded hill, the beautiful antiques, the charming community contributed to a great getaway. If only the weather had not been so hot and humid. Thanks for the air conditioner in the bed room.

Unpleasant surprise

  • 3 of 5

They charged us for using their 2 towels.

C'mon, even cheapest motels provide towels for their customers.

I'm not so sure about cleanliness, besides that nice and cozy venue.

Owner's Response: We regret the unpleasant surprise however we ask our guests to please return the cottage to us in the condition that they found it. We are happy to provide linens and towels for free provided that they are washed dryed and put away. Many rentals require guests to provide their own linens and towels. We provide a washer and dryer and detergent for this to be done. We often have short turn around times and to ask our cleaning service to do wash is not acceptable.
