About Gary & Sherrie

I am a Contractor by trade, with numerous years of retail background too. A funny combination, but very useful in my life. My wonderful wife and I decided to purchase properties for the sole purpose of renting them as vacation cabins/cottages, as a means to build a retirement program for our future.

As a contractor, I will have little in the means of 401K/Social Security, so defining my retirement and preparing for it, is my goal now. So we decided to purchase numerous rental properties - (Cabins/Cottages) and offer them to you and your family as a great place to get away and enjoy an inexpensive vacation, close to home, but far enough away to relax too.

Lots of great fishing, sight-seeing, hiking, bike riding, and other fun stuff for you and your family.

Even if your not into fishing, the lake offers lots of enjoyment in so many other ways...

Kayak, Canoe, Sail, take a cruise or just go see the fish and ducks, there's always something to do. If you never been to the spillway in Linesville, PLEASE take loaves of bread and go have fun... Your kids will love it!!!!!

Gary & Sherrie purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Gary & Sherrie chose Pennsylvania

We purchased this location because LOCATION is the key thing for us. We wanted our Cabins/Cottages to be close to the Causeway, as it is the center attraction, the place to be when you're at the lake. All our properties are in the same area for this same reason.

We also wanted a SAFE, QUIET area for you to relax at...

What makes this cottage unique

PLEASE NOTE - This cottage is HEATED by a Pot Belly Stove ONLY!!! So you must be able to maintain a fire in the stove to provide heat.

Most of the people that stay in this cottage love the romantic part of the Pot Belly stove and getting their heat from it... It takes you back to a time before things were so easy.... We just want to make sure that ALL Visitors are aware of this detail.

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this cottage was tremendous. It's was quiet and relaxing. Gary was very helpful in directing us to things to do in the area. The cottage was stocked with everything we needed so it made packing a breeze. Only draw back was something in the cottage(possibly the carpets) wreaked havoc on my wife's allergies all weekend. Other than that it was an enjoyable experience.

Owner's Response: Hi Jordan and family, thanks a lot for the great review and I am extremely sorry to hear about your wife's allergies. We plan to remove all the carpet this winter and install new hardwood floor through out the cottage. We realize that the carpet can trap dog hair and becomes an allergy nest for those with allergy issues, my daughter suffers too, so once agian I do apologize. We're also going to replace all the mattresses after this season too, making sure that everything is fresh for next year. We hope to see all of you again and once agin thank you for the great feedback, it means a lot to us. Thanks, Gary & Sherrie

Our stay at the cottage house was great !

  • 4 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was quaint and comfortable. Plenty of sleeping space and having so much included really cut down on packing and unpacking. The fire pit is where we really got to relax and enjoy our company who visited us during our stay. The area in which the cottage is located allowed us to enjoy walks, fishing, boating and local destinations. The owners are extremely helpful and very friendly!

5/5 star, would recommend and stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay, and I really appreciated how homey the cottage felt (I particularly liked the punny fishing signs, vintage tins, and wood paneling - you just can't get good wood paneling like that anymore!) The cottage was definitely fully equipped - we found everything we could possibly need, there were also plenty of towels in the bathroom/kitchen, and I liked that there were some toiletries available in case we forgot something! Beds were nice and everything was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the outdoor space, and being able to make use of the fire pit was a highlight - our little dog loved running around outside, too! 5/5 star, would recommend and stay again.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

First- plenty of off street parking. Next, once I opened the door, I was surprised to see the open space and comfortable living area. The beds were comfortable. Kitchen provided everything needed for meal preparation. Bathroom was very clean. My favorite was the yard! I love being outdoors,therefore, that it where I spent most of my time. Relaxing under huge oaks or near the campfire ...plenty of time to refind the inner peace that gets lost in everyday responsibilities. Yes, I took advantage of the bicycles. Once I regained my balance...I loved the feel of a cool summer breeze blowing through my hair! I spent many hours hiking the trails and enjoying the natural wildlife. Also went to feed the fish at the Spillway. As well as visited the fish hatchery. Hope to see the yellow warbler on the next visit.

Thank you Gary and Sherrie for keeping the rustic feel of the home!

I plan to revisit in the future!

Owner's Response: Hi Lorraine and Family, thank you so much for the great review and experience you had at our place. It makes us feel real good when people such as yourself find that inner kid, the one that can just enjoy the "breeze that blows as you ride a bike again".... We are trying our best to provide a fun and rewarding time while at our place in Pymatuning. We have lots planned, and we hope you will continue to come back year after year to see the changes and additions. We promise to keep it "rustic, yet modern" in the since of convenience.... We're really happy you found the place well stocked and comfortable. We tried a new look this year, "Flea Market Decorating", my wife laughs when I say that.... Thanks again for coming and we look forward to seeing all of you again. Gary & Sherrie

The Cabins/Cottages we own are all located on the PA side of Pymatuning Lake, within walking distance of the Causeway and the Lake itself.

We selected these locations because they sit in the most desired area of the lake region, with great access to all the towns, and prime to the lake itself.

When we select a Cabin/Cottage to purchase/own and rent, we always think of our end-user and what will they like and enjoy. We purchase Cabins/Cottages where we know we would want to stay, In Safe & Quiet locations; close to the Lake so you can take a walk and enjoy the sunset at night or the cool fog/dew on an early morning walk by the Lake.

Just minutes by foot from the Causeway, Marina, and the Lake, you can take a stroll any time of the day and enjoy the water, the fishing or the fresh air blowing off the lake.

Our Cabins/Cottages are modest, as a cottage should be. They are a bit rustic, but CLEAN. We work really hard to keep that country feel, back to an earlier time when life was more simple.

If your looking for a nice, clean, comfortable place, where you can kick your shoes off and just chill out, then we have the place for you...

While your at one of our cabins, make sure you go to the Spillway, and feed the fish. You should take at least 4-6 loafs of bread, and have fun watching the fish go nuts over the bread....
