Description of the Boiling Springs vacation cottage rental
Located in the quaint town of Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, directly on a creek, the Creek Cottage is a dream vacation home. Only a two hour drive outside of the District of Columbia, this picturesque water-front home resides in one of America’s oldest towns, which in 1984 was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Enjoy tranquil fishing and boating in the summer, hiking all year round, and nearby ski-ing and tubing in the winter.

In the winter, one can choose to go skiing or tubing for the day or even just the afternoon, at Ski Roundtop, only a half an hours drive from home. Right off the backyard of the Creek Cottage, runs the Yellow Breeches Creek, consistently stocked with trout, this creek has recently gained a national reputation to being home to some of the best fly fishing in America. It is also less than an hour away from outlet mall shopping.

The Allenberry Play House is the famous resort owned and operated by the Heinz family. The Historic Allenberry staged their first play in 1948 and has continued throughout the years with class and elegance.

One of the America’s most historic landmarks, The Gettysburg Battlefield, is located only half an hours drive from the Creek Cottage. In the same amount of time, one can drive out to Hershey Park and enjoy all the rides, entertainment and chocolate one’s inner child could desire.

The creek cottage has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a large great room consisting of an open kitchen, an entertainment center and a dining area. The master bedroom has a King sized bed and en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. The other downstairs bedroom has 2 single beds. The upper floor has a bedroom, with two twin beds and an adjoining sitting room, with a queen sized pull down futon. Ideal for a family, short or long term rental, or home leave in the USA. It is also close to Dickinson College - ideal for home-coming weekends, college visits, or graduation weekend.

Call us directly for long-term rental, military specials, home leave stay and holiday specials.

Quiet location - perfect for graduation week at Di

May 21, 2015

We had a great time at this home/cottage for 4 days while attending our daughter's graduation at Dickinson. It is a beautiful setting by Yellow Breeches Creek -- so if you like to canoe, boat, fish -- perfect. Boiling Springs is a great little town with several superb places to eat. Grocery store there and the Appalachian Trail goes right through so good biking and hiking right there. The owner was great and really accommodating during the entire stay given some family issues we were having. I would no doubt return there. May be harder for folks older and not real mobile since the upstairs does have a very steep set of stairs to the area that sleeps 2 to 4. Downstairs master bedroom was great and smaller bedroom with 2 small singles also downstairs very nice. Has many perks like On Demand TV and Movies so we caught up on a season of our favorite TV shows during one rainy day. Enjoy -- we did!

I am glad you had a great time Peter! Yes indeed, the upstairs bedroom is most appropriate for younger family members as the stairs are somewhat steep! But plenty of bedroom space downstairs. Regards, Susan

The location of this place was perfect. It's just a mile or so east of the little village of Boiling Springs with the creek right behind the house. Perfect little deck to enjoy your morning coffee or dinner. The little convenience store and grocery have all the basics that you need but you're literally minutes from Mechanisburg or Carlise if you need a bigger shopping experience. It was a half hour trip to Gettysburg or Hershey, 1 1/2 hrs to DC. They had fishing equipment for the kids to use and life jackets with a paddle boat and canoes right there by the water. Basket ball hoop, games and an old pool table for extra entertainment. There were plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. I will say plan on keeping elderly or the taller folks on the main floor, the upstairs area was perfect for the kids but kind of awkward for taller or not so limber people to maneuver down. Going up no problem. Plenty of room for everyone to sprawl out. The owners were great to work with and were quick to help out with directions and local info. A special shout out and thank you to their parents who live next door. The dad who just had surgery was a sweetie and got the garbage out before I could get it out there!! My brother really liked the place and thought he would be able to recommend it to guests of his parishioners. Will definitely look this place up when I make it out again! Thank you so much!

It was a great place to relax and my family loved fishing. We loved being close to everything and yet far enough away to relax. We definitely want to stay again sometime.

great spot to relax

My husband and I rented this cottage as a place to meet our son and his wife for a few days, to give them a break from hiking the Appalachian Trail. It was perfect! We could relax, cook, relax some more, go into town to the excellent coffee shop, talk, etc. The hikers could rest their weary selves and eat real food (rather than reconstituted at a campsite). Everything was clean and quiet and relaxing. It was just like the pictures show online.

We visited this summer and the cottage was fantastic! Close enough to enjoy the larger attractions of the area, but tucked away in a place that allowed for rest and relaxation. We would definitely love to come back someday. A charming, welcoming place to visit.

Kick back and relax

We had a great week at the Cottage on Yellow Breeches Creek. We enjoyed the deck, peaceful quiet setting, the paddleboat, reading on the deck and swing, sitting on the chairs at our "own" dock, and the big-screen TV. Close to town, but a rural setting.
