About Carol Heth
Pete & Carol have lived next door to the property 30+years. Carol grew up right up the road and the home they live in, next door to the cottage, was her Grandparents.
Carol Heth purchased this Cottage in 1983
Why Carol Heth chose Columbia
With growing up and living in the area for so long we know how enjoyable it is to be here. We have a private property and enjoy living here.
What makes this Cottage unique
The historic area around us has so much to see and enjoy. Whether you enjoy nature, hiking, kayaking, boating, shopping, farmer's markets, the Amish, or relaxing you will have the opportunity for it all. So close to the Susquehanna River to be able to use it or the hiking trails around it. If you want to travel to a big city, we are centrally located to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, or New York City. But, you will enjoy the city of Lancaster and Columbia for their arts and antiques.
Unique country home
We really enjoyed staying in this unique house. We loved the layout, especially the kitchen with a professional gas stove. The owners were very nice and helpful. Upon arrival, they had fresh farm eggs in the refrigerator and several DELICIOUS gluten-free scones that they made for us were on the counter. They were successful in modifying their original recipe with gluten-free flour! It was nice and relaxing to look out the window and see all kinds of farm life, like chickens, donkeys, emus, etc. The donkeys are very friendly. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again in the future.
We made the decision to book a four-day stay the day before checking in. The reviews were so good that we were dubious about them all being 100% accurate. They were all true and then some. If you are looking for a bucolic and relaxing respite this is your place. We focused mostly on restaurants and antique stores in near-by Columbia. Carol and Pete are terrific and totally committed to their guests. We look forward to a return stay...
The cottage and entire area exceeded my expectations. Beautifully furnished, cozy, quiet and peaceful. The setting was so wonderful, with the chickens, donkeys, and cats just outside my window, not to mention the cows grazing nearby. The owners have taken great care to see to your every comfort, and Carol brought down freshly baked biscuits and farm-fresh eggs on my first day! The Heths are sweet, generous and kind people who truly care about their guests' comfort. I did not want to leave, and will be back as soon as I can possibly get there!! Thank you both for your warm hospitality and friendship. It was a peaceful and lovely week; much needed! Best wishes to you both, Martha Evans
Perfect, absolutely perfect
There is everything to like and nothing to dislike about this cottage and the other two.
We arrived to stay at Fairview after spending a few days in New York and Washington, having enjoyed the hustle, bustle of city life, arriving at the cottage was total tranquility and peace.
Pete and Carol welcomed us with delicious homemade scones, and a warm hello, told us that they were there to help in any way if we needed it. We agreed to meet up at sometime during our stay, I was on a promise of meeting Bella the “Frenchie” We were also greeted by the numerous animals, hens, roosters, donkeys, puss cats, emu’s and an array of wild birds, deer came along too in the evening. Opening the fridge to fresh laid eggs was fab.
There’s nothing that the cottage lacks, it’s tastefully decorated to a really high standard, with everything and more than you could wish for in facilities.
During our stay we met with Pete and Carol and enjoyed lovely food, quite a lot of liquid refreshment and the best of company.
We truly can’t recommend it enough to anyone thinking of staying there.
Thank you, Pete and Carol, we had a ball
Wonderful place to stay! Pete and Carol are the best. Hope to visit again one day.
Perfect city escape
What a lovely get away! Carol and Pete have thought of everything you can need and more for a relaxing country retreat! The house is beautifully designed and even has a screened in napping porch. The kitchen is so well appointed I actually enjoyed preparing dinners each night. We especially appreciated to be able to bring our dog along who enjoyed meeting the chickens and donkeys. Highly recommend!
The cottage is located near the beautiful Susquehanna River. You may enjoy spending time on the river or hike a trail near it. If you enjoy shopping, the Amish, or just relaxing this will be a treat for you. Centrally located to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, or New York City for day trips if so desired.
