  • Great location


    We were renting while in town for a business trip. This is a wonderful property. It was great to be able to make our own meals instead of going out for every meal. We didn't have a lot of extra time for recreation and exploring but this was a nice central location for everything we were able to do. I would have no problems staying here again if I'm ever back in the area.

  • Nice spot close to campus


    I was in town for an event at Mercersburg Academy. This was the perfect location as I was able to walk back and forth to campus. The backyard is a peaceful oasis. The communication with the owner was timely and helpful.

  • Another Awesome Weekend in Mercersburg


    I can't say enough at how comfortable and cozy this cottage was! We felt right at home. I was able to make cookies for my kids and their friends, walk right from the place to town and get hot coffee, we watched movies and played games. I was the perfect weekend getaway at the most charming of places. thank you for a lovely weekend.

  • Relaxing at its best


    This is such a quaint little cottage. We loved staying here. It was like stepping into a fairy garden. The house is roomy and comfortable with a lot of extras. The back deck is so relaxing with your morning coffee and great for games in the evening. The canopy from the trees add coolness and such interest. Many birds and squirrels to enjoy as well. There is a good Mexican restaurant right across the street we tried out, a grocery store less than 5 minutes away, historic downtown is a recommended walk and with all this when you are back at your cottage you feel secluded and is a great quiet place to relax. We grilled steaks on the grill and enjoyed a superb meal outside under the pergola. Beds are comfy and pantry well stocked. Got to meet Meg, very nice and accommodating. Again we enjoyed our time here very much!! Thank you for a much needed get away!!
