Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Mansfield - Mulberry Hill Carriage House

Beautiful 1600 Square Foot 4 bedroom home with Beautiful Views

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 Carriage 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 adjacent Country House is located on the property and the 2 homes located near each other 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 2004

Why David and Rachel Tews chose Pennsylvania

My husband purchased the property in 1997 and raised his 2 older sons in the Country House. 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) He built the Carriage House in 2004 where he had offices for his business in a Feng Shui design. We converted the house from an office/relaxation space to a Vacation Rental in 2006 when my husband and I met. 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.

The stay at the carriage house was a positive experience in every way. Beautiful and quiet location. Carriage house was very clean, beautifully decorated, had everything that we needed for our stay, loved the horses and donkey. Highly recommended!

A delightful stay even with the donkeys!

  • 5 of 5

This reservation was very last minute (same day) due to an unexpected change in venue and Rachel was wonderful to work with! The house was great, clean, and close to the quaint towns of Mansfield and Wellsboro. Our girls weekend would have been a dud without this great and super cheap find!! The donkeys like to be noisy but cute to look at and feed ;)

New comfortable well decorated house

  • 5 of 5

We are very pleased with staying in this house. We liked that it was new, spacious, tastefully decorated with vast rural vistas from the windows. The pictures on the website do not give it the full credit, to my mind. The two nice donkeys right here give it an additional flavor. One of the best things about the house is a completely silent heating system. Clear and comprehensive instructions about the house and TV were very helpful. Initially we had some worries about one bath for 7 people in our party but it turned out to be all right. We enjoyed a big "walk-in" shower and jacuzzi. Everything worked perfectly well. On the downside, the counter space in the kitchen is pretty limited, there were no sugar, spices, except for salt and pepper, grater, scissors, and hair dryer but these are minor details so I am giving full 5 stars to this property.

As for the nearby sightseeing/hiking we highly recommend Colton Point and Leonard Harrison State Parks (about 25 minute drive). Both have marvelous views of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. In the cold weather we had, we especially enjoyed a short, 1 mile, almost flat Barbour Rock Trail with the overlook on the canyon. The trail starts and ends on Colton Road before the actual entrance to Colton Point State Park. There is a parking lot at the start of the trail on the right side of the road if you go from Ansonia. We took local maps, and advice, from Country Ski & Sports shop in Wellsboro, PA.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us over the New Year's Holiday. We enjoyed having you as our guests in the Carriage House at Mulberry Hill Estate. The rain shower is one of the best features of the bathroom. We enjoyed it too when we use to live in the home!
