About the property

3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, flowing layout surrounded by nature

Pequea Cottage

Private woodland get-away adjacent to Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve. Listen to the water all around you and relax. Or hike the Susquehanna River hills – 40 miles of trails alone in the PPL Holtwood Environmental Preserve, or five miles to the public boat launch with a perfect eight mile lake for fishing, kayaking or water skiing.

Relax in this newly updated cottage, a cozy relaxing living room with all the comforts included; flat screen TV’s in both the living room and master bedroom. Stero with speakers outside too. Or on those cool evenings warm-up beside the coal stove. Fully equipped kitchen; side by side ref., dishwasher, microwave, blender, all the conveniences. Master bed room has beautiful views of the outdoors while relaxing in your queen size bed. The 2nd bedroom has a little twist to it with the full size bed elevated in a birds nest loft. WiFi – if you need to stay in touch or escape into a private office area with a great view to watch the birds. Modern bathroom and a full size washer and dryer.

“Living Outside” on the 1,200 square foot natural flagstone patio highlighted by your own spring feed pond. Enjoy a bonfire while sitting on Adirondack chairs and listening to the flowing stream. Or maybe you might enjoy relaxing on the hammock watching the bird feeders and hearing Tucquan Glen in the background. As someone cooks on the gas grill or enjoy a second dinning area.

If you need a bigger home check out my other property on VRBO #660581.

Why Brian Ament chose Pennsylvania

I chose to purchase this property because of the location, then I created a masterpiece of a home, that fits into the surroundings.

What makes this cottage unique

The property intreged me and let my imagination run wild. With its surreal surroundings, the sounds of water in the background all while being secluded in a woodland environment. This property is an extremely rare find!

Excellent Accommodations and Location for a Quiet Stay

  • 5 of 5

We will be returning! The place has much to offer as a retreat (peaceful outside, trails, streams, etc.) during the day and plenty to be entertained with in the evening (large HDTV, Wii, Wifi, games, etc). The home featured newer appliances and the place was very very clean! The security system was a bonus and the rooms living spaces were large and comfortable. My young family had a great time and it is very hard to think hotels moving forward. The extra space of a house is awesome! Memories to last for a lifetime.

Lots of nice nature trails near by to pick from

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time at this place. Lots of nice nature trails to pick from walking distance from the cabin. This place also has a nice fire pit and the little creek next to the cabin was peaceful. We also took advantage of the gas grill outside and the outdoor speaker connected to the TV.

It is an awesome property and in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house to celebrate the new years and I was not sure what to expect as I have never rented a house before. When we arrived we were surprised by the way the house looked and the property and it looks even better in person then in pictures. Everything we needed seemed to be here. We were able to take a walk in the woods which was beautiful. Our New Years was an awesome one and mainly because the house was comfortable for us and we were able to have fun and enjoy the property.

Very Nice House Near Hiking Trails

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the very well maintained house that was near nice hiking trails that you could walk to from the house. We also drove 10 minutes to get to several other hiking trails. The house had everything we needed to cook and stay several days. Enjoyed the Wii game system also.
