5/5 Excellent

Relaxing and Renewing
Lovely, cosy cabin in a very pretty location. Perfect for getting away from the city and hiking and bird watching!

5/5 Excellent

Fort Hill
The hosts are wonderful and discrete, always available and there when you need them, but if you don't, you likely won't see them. The cabin/cottage is secluded in a beautiful woodland setting and it just becomes your private space for the time you are there. It is special and magical.

5/5 Excellent

A little slice of tranquility
Everything you need (except food and drinks!) is provided. The listing is 100% accurate. Communication is quick and helpful. There were fresh daffodils in a vase with a note from Mona for our arrival. The ice-cube trays were full and frozen, and there were beer glasses in the freezer! Be prepared for no cell phone reception (this was a plus for us), enjoy the wildlife, have a fire, eat, drink and talk.

5/5 Excellent

Awesome spot and place!
This unit was perfect for our hiking trip to Ohiopyle. The home is very cozy and the property is secluded and quiet.

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely Perfect
This cottage was not only gorgeous in itself but its location is even more so. My spouse and I had an undoubtedly wonderful experience being able to escape from society into the wilderness, even if it’s just an hour drive away! Thank you again to Mona and Bryon who are such lovely owners, we had a marvelous time here and are sure to be back
