About Tim Geibel

We've made a home in Crawford County and have wanted to find a way to help promote and share all the beauty of the region with our friends and family. This cottage is our first step. Bought as an old farm house in 2013, we've done a pretty big remodel of the house and the grounds to help showcase Crawford County. Come stay for awhile and you might just want to call our region home!

Tim Geibel purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Tim Geibel chose Pennsylvania

Quite country setting that is minutes from everything! Edinboro University, Allegheny College, 3 golf courses, a great Micro-brew, nearby access to French Creek and State game we say more! You can spend the same amount of money for a hotel and get a room with a view of the parking lot or you can stay with us and have the privacy of a beautiful country setting just minutes from wherever you need to be!

What makes this cottage unique

Full access to 3+ acres of property to enjoy. Outside fireplace, walking trails, flower gardens, pumpkin patch and more!

The property was just what we were looking for! Very peaceful & beautiful, especially in the fall!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for a weekend getaway for our anniversary and I came across this cottage that was the perfect size for just the two of us. However, it could probably house a party of four.

We arrived pretty late and, considering it was dark, we had a little trouble locating exactly where it was because it sits off of the road a little bit but with the help of some friendly neighbors, we found it in no time!

The inside is absolutely beautiful and the decor suits it well. It's equipped with just about everything you could imagine that you would need including things that you may not think to bring that come in handy!

The cottage was very, very clean upon our arrival which was one of my main concerns before we arrived so I was very impressed. It has a very welcoming atmosphere, as well. The inside is very modern but it isn't so modern that it's uncomfortable. It was just perfect for us.

Tim was very helpful and very prompt with responding to any of our questions and he was very kind to us. He gave us our space to enjoy ourselves which I appreciated a lot.

We took a trip to Niagara Falls the day we checked out which is about 2.5 hours away from the cottage which was beautiful and is a nice day trip if you're looking for something to do to take up a day of your stay.

Overall, our experience was absolutely wonderful and I would go back in a heartbeat. The scenery and the cottage go hand in hand and both compliment each other well! It's a very cozy and relaxing place to go to take a load off. We were more than impressed!

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. The cottage was very well stocked with just about everything one could ask for. I especially enjoyed the trails through the meadow, as my dogs.

Great time!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our last minute trip away for the weekend. The paths and fire pit were wonderful and our dogs really loved running around them with us. A wonderful experience and would definitely stay again!

Also...2 breweries and a meadery within 15 minutes was perfect! Lots to do in the area.

Perfect accommodations for our recent visit

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning.....

our overall experience was wonderful. It was the perfect place to stay during our recent visit to the area. The owner Tim was quite helpful with all our inquiries. The cottage was clean, cozy, offering a home away from home feel. Loved the peacefulness of the country. We would definitely stay again as long as we are welcome...........🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

We travel and rent cabins a great deal. This rental was everything we could ask. The cabin was clean, well equipped and close to Erie/Presque Isle attractions.

The owner went above and beyond to communicate with us to ensure that our stay was flawless.

Would highly recommend!!!
