5 Star rated get-a-way in the heart of Chester County
About Rick Doughten
Rick and Wanda Doughten were both born and have lived in and loved Chester County all their lives. Married for 43 years, we have been blessed to call Groundhog College Road home for over 30 years. Recently we completed a wonderful Loft over our detached three car garage. We would like to share this elegant, romantic yet simple place with you.

Why Rick Doughten chose West Chester
After living just outside the borough of West Chester for a number of years we jumped at the chance to own this lovely property just a few miles from town by roads, yet light-years away in peace and solitude.
What makes this Apartment unique

Yet the Loft is secluded, peaceful, simply elegant, romantic, and luxury in relaxing surroundings. Planning a winter stay? Take advantage of our optional indoor heated garage parking. Dry and 50 degrees, it has a door leading directly to the Loft stairs. Stay warm and dry while getting into your warm car - $20 / night additional.

The Loft was the perfect home away from home. It was well equipped in the kitchen as well as providing a smart TV and DVD player. The Loft has a spacious bathroom, a nice deck, and laundry facilities. I would definitely stay there again.
A very enjoyable stay
We stayed at The Loft for a few days to get some quiet time and relaxation during the Labor Day weekend. It was everything that was advertised and I had a very enjoyable stay. The location is secluded enough to have all of the privacy you want but also close enough so that you can get to anything you would like within 10-20 minutes. The Loft has all of the amenities that you could ask for to enjoy yourself and have a relaxing stay. I would highly recommend The Loft as a option for anyone who is looking for a place to go and get away from it all. An easy 5 stars from me.
Bruce and Robin
We spent two lovely months at The Loft. It is immaculate and beautiful, inside and out. Very private, rural setting, with birds feeding on deck. Owners were very responsive to any request. Highly recommend it.
Incredible loft surrounded by nature
The pictures Rick has for his loft drew my girlfriend and I to his place - they were INCREDIBLE. The moment you step foot into the loft is the moment you REALLY appreciate it for what it is.
The loft was clean, spacious, beautifully lit, newly furnished (and finished it appears), surrounded by nature, with a private outdoor balcony. The lofts amenities are enough to make you want to stay forever.
Kick back and relax in a loft fit with a bluetooth stereo, king sized bed, jacuzzi, his and her sinks, an incredible shower, and so much more.
We will definitely be back, thanks again Rick for being so accommodating and allowing us to stay at your beautiful loft.
Relaxing and rejuvinating
We couldn't have asked for a better getaway than this one! The loft is gorgeous, inviting and cozy, full of luxurious amenities. The surrounding nature is simply beautiful. Our weekend away from our three kids was peaceful and so good for the soul, exactly what we needed!
