Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Mansfield - Mulberry Hill Country House

4 Star Beautifully Renovated Country House - 5 bedrooms 2 bathrooms

The Country House is a newly renovated 2400 sq ft., 100 year old farmhouse with 5 beautifully appointed bedrooms and 2 large comfortable living spaces. The house sits on a beautiful 40 acre setting located just 5 minutes from downtown Mansfield, PA and less than 15 minutes from Historic Wellsboro, PA. The Country House has beautiful views of protected wetlands where there are migrating Canadian Geese, thousands of croaking peepers, wild turkeys, deer and black bear. Sitting on the front porch, looking at the tranquil setting will feel like days gone by. There are many places to wonder and explore on the estate….

The Carriage House is located on an estate where there are 2 homes located near each other which can both be reserved to accommodate large groups comfortably. The tranquil setting is wonderful for children…ideal for sitting around the campfire in Adirondack style seating, star gazing, roasting marshmallows, catching lightening bugs, grilling out, picnic lunches and enjoying time with family and friends while having all the wonderful things to do in Tioga County in your back yard. The Estate is a perfect location for a large family get-a-way, a reunion or a corporate retreat when you rent both homes for a total of 9 bedrooms.

About David and Rachel Tews

Rachel and David Tews - Proprietors

We opened our home as a vacation rental in 2009. We moved to another home and decided to turn it into a vacation rental rather than sell the property. My husband and I both own other businesses in downtown Wellsboro, PA. I am the owner of The Fifth Season, a women's boutique and home furnishings store. (Stop by and visit the store, especially if you love the design style and decor in the homes.) My husband is a partner in a telecommunications company called Indigo Wireless. We are very active in our community and are often found working on one of our many charity or philanthropic ventures.We are the proud parents of 4 children. 2 older boys one who lives in Scottsbluff NE and one who will soon be graduating from University of Pittsburgh. We have 2 young girls, one who is 4 and one who is 7 who love attending Montessori and doing dance and gymnastics and performing in shows.

David and Rachel Tews purchased this house in 1997

Why David and Rachel Tews chose Pennsylvania

My husband purchased this property in 1997 and raised his 2 older sons here. He moved to the area to build a cellular system in the area. They were animal lovers and had a Noah's ark of rescued animals living on the property which is perfectly conducive to many animals with the large open pastures and nostalgic renovated red roofed barn. There are still 2 donkeys that live on the property. (called Peter and Buckwheat) When my husband and I met in 2006 we decided we needed to live in Wellsboro to be closer to our other businesses. Rather than sell the home we decided to turn it into a vacation rental and share the beautiful setting with others.

What makes this house unique

Our property is a beautiful 40 acres that sits across from a protected wetland. It is a very peaceful oasis to visit when you are looking to get-a- way from the fast paced life of the city and suburbs. If you love a beautifully decorated home with all the modern amenities this is the home for you. The homes are decorated in the lovely 'Fifth Season' style.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely beautiful!!! Recently we stayed in the Country House while visiting family in the NY area. My family decided to join us as well and all 11 of us stayed comfortably in the house with plenty of room to sleep, relax and enjoy each others company. The house is absolutely beautiful, the beds were very comfortable and we all enjoyed as much time as we could outside whether it be running through the huge yard with our kids, grilling meals or roasting marshmallows on the fire. My children loved visiting the donkeys to which they named hee-haw and Annabelle :) We will definitely be staying here in the future when we visit our family in NY. Rachel and Dave were fantastic in making sure we felt at home!

Fabulous vacation home!

The house was awesome with lots of space, inside and out! It was the perfect place for our family reunion! The firepit was our favorite spot, with lots of seating for evening fires!

Just Stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this BEAUTIFUL home. My family came into town from NH and NJ for a local wedding. I originally grew up in the area but moved away 30 years ago. It was very comfortable, the beds were great. It was so much better to have all of us in a home rather then 5 hotel rooms without one area to gather. I highly recommend this rental and will get it again if all of us come back at the same time. Jeanette Perham

Ps We LOVED Peter and Buckwheat the donkeys

Beautiful, comfortable, clean

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 8 people for the New Year and it exceeded all of our expectations! It was very clean, well equipped, and furnished. It was even decorated for the holiday(!)

The beds and linens were very comfortable.

The space allowed us to stay together but at the same time it has separate sitting areas for smaller groups of people.

The house is much nicer than it is at the pictures.

It is only 30 min away from the Corning museum of glass which we really enjoyed as well.

Bring extra carrots and apples to feed the two donkeys who live in a barn on the property.

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

8 of us rented this lovely farmhouse for our Thanksgiving holiday and we loved every minute of it. The property is very well kept and most of all, breathtaking. With 5 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, the sitting room and living room, we never felt like we were stumbling over one another. There was also enough chairs in the dining room to accommodate our large party and gave us the ability to eat together during every meal. The house really is stocked with your everyday essentials, including shampoo and conditioner (that was a first for me). Plenty of towels, plates, glasses and eating utensils. The beds were extra comfy and the heat was very toasty. The only downside was that we couldn't get the fireplace to work during our 5 night stay. Other than that, it was a nice and relaxing mini vacation. We felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, but had the convenience of driving 5 minutes to get to the Walmart. We loved this house and can't wait to return. If you're looking for a "home away from home" to rent, and not just a house, this is it. This home is so cozy and inviting, that my husband practically slept the whole time we were there 😂. The owners were also nice enough to allow us to bring our small dogs, and that is ALWAYS a plus. Stay at Mulberry Hill Estate and you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful and affordable gem

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay.. We booked in the last 2 weeks and couldn't ask for a better way to end our vacation. Right on the cusp of the beautiful and adventure filled Pine creek and lovely Cherry Springs State Park (renowned for its darkest skies and bustling with amateur stargazers and astronomers), this house is filled with amenities and is very tastefully decorated. It has 2 full bathrooms and 3 full bedrooms and a nice kids bedroom. The kitchen was stocked and linens were real neat. The outsides are well maintained and there are 2 donkeys in the neighborhood which are entertaining. The house was 5 min drive from Mansfield, PA where you can get most basic stuff..We stayed for 2 nights and wished we had longer..

We do look forward to being back there soon..

Great time in Mansfield, PA.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family had a wonderful time during our stay in the country house. The location in ideal, and the vacillates are ideal for an extended family. The donkeys were a very popular attraction, and we were able to pick blueberries twice. Our two young grandsons enjoyed the large yard and making smores at the fire pit. We hope to be able to stay there the next time that we have a family reunion in the area. It is very obvious that the owners care greatly about their guest experience.
