Description from owner

Excelsior Cottage is a world of its own.

This unique cottage is beautiful decorated with a mix of antiques

and cottage style furnishings, and sits among the old farmstead buildings-- with historic barn and wagon shed...so that our guests can share in the history of this portion of the Green Valley property. Excelsior's grounds have abundant flowers gardens, and spring-summer there's always something in bloom. In early spring, the path along Bill's trail is

edged with hundreds of daffodils...in dozens of colors. Come see for yourself what makes Green Valley and its cottage so very special ... you won't want to leave !!!

Take a journey back in time. Excelsior Cottage and its 22 acre property is the most recent addition to Green Valley--making Green Valley now a private 75 acre property with only 4 cottages. Excelsior Cottage, named in honor of the one room school house once located on the property.

A short walk, bike ride, or drive brings you to the property's 3 acre lake for pedalboating, fishing, tubing or just relaxing by the water !

About the area

Located in South-Central Pa. in Fulton Co. Our 75 acre property is the perfect place to find peace and quiet. Originally founded in the 1960s as a campground, Green Valley was reinvented and reopened as our cottage getaway in 1996. For the past 15 years, hundreds of guests have experienced the simple beauty that is Green Valley. The lake at Green Valley is 3 acres in size and ranges in depth from 4 ft. to 16 ft. Stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish the lake is a favorite with everyone. A floating dock gives easy access to the pedal boat and rowboat and a fishing dock with Adirondack chairs makes a great place to soak up some sun, read, or throw in a line! The hills and valleys of the property are filled with marked hiking trails for your enjoyment. On a spring day, discover a small waterfall on Smith Run Trail or question the origins of an old abandoned fence on Split Rail Trail. Fill your pockets with wild raspberries in the summertime as you meander down Bill's Trail and rediscover again the simple pleasures of life.

“Green Valley Cottages - Always a Treat!”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2016

I have been vacationing at Green Valley cottages since 2007 and have enjoyed stays at each of the four cottages multiple times over the years. Excelsior is the newest addition to the Green Valley rentals. It sits on 25 acres of land and offers a great deal of privacy and seclusion - while still being close enough to enjoy the lake and hiking trails on the adjacent 50 acres. The cottage is spacious - but cozy - and thoughtfully decorated. There are several outside decks where one can sit and absorb the beauty of nature that surrounds the house. An outdoor hot tub offers a great venue for star gazing, and a covered parking area makes packing/unpacking the car easy regardless of the weather. Probably the best thing about Excelsior - and all the Green Valley cottages - is that they are dog-friendly and non-smoking! What could be better than a mountain getaway with your best furry friend? Each cottage and each season offers visitors something special. Having read the journals in each of the cottages it seems it doesn't matter if you're young or old, single or part of a family, there's something for everyone at Green Valley!

Owner's reply: Thanks, Pat, for taking time from your busy schedule to tell others about Green Valley. You have been a wonderful guests for many years now....and it's a pleasure to share the beauty of our valley with you and your furry friends. I'm looking forward to your return in the spring....and to having you enjoy the magic of Green Valley for years to come. Wishing you all the best, Lola
