About the property

1 Loft bedroom, 1 full bathroom, 1 full kitchen, 1 front room, sleeps 2-4

Nestled above Curwensville Lake, the cottage is in a country setting, next to the host home, yet only about 12 miles from Interstate 80.It will sleep up to four with a queen-size bed in loft and a sleeper couch in the front room. It has HD satellite flatscreen TV with DVD player, a fully equipped kitchen,keurig, outdoor grilling area, hot tub, and a relaxing tree swing overlooking the lake and beautiful West Branch of the Susquehanna River Valley. Wildlife (such as turkey, whitetail deer, grouse, and an occasional black bear) abounds in central PA and often make appearances around the cottage. Even Bald Eagles often soar in the valley as their nest is directly below the cottage.

This charming country cottage was completed in 2011 and is within the PA Wilds part of central Pennsylvania. Besides fishing and boating at the lake other attractions are also nearby: such as elk viewing, Punxsutawney Phil, Penn State football, amish, golfing, sightseeing the state forests of Penns Woods, etc...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can't begin to thank you enough for this perfect getaway. You have an amazing home, thank you for sharing that with us. this is the ideal get away I needed to take a step back from my daily life on the ground in Afghanistan. Also if you haven't taken the opportunity to go explore Pennscave, I highly reccommend it. We will definitely be reccommending your cottage to our friends. May God bless you and your family.



P.S. Please keep me in your prayers as I travel back over seas.

Cozy Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I took our first vacation here and it was perfect. Access was easy and private. There was a bit of snow on the ground but the owners made sure we had salted paths. The host home is close but there was a privacy fence and the owners were gone for most of our visit. The view was absolutely stunning, it was like a fairytale, overlooking the lake from the hot tub and waking up to it each day. The kitchen was perfect for our needs and the heated floors were the essence of luxury. I have never experience a more comfortable futon in my life! Haha and the loft bed was also quite comfy. We stayed in most of the time but are just 15 minutes from town for restaurants and stores. This is a perfect romantic location for any season and we will definitely be returning! If you are extremely tall, I wouldn't recommend sleeping on the far end of the loft though, as it is an A-frame style architecture.

Peaceful, cozy, clean, relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous! It was the perfect place for a little weekend get-a-way; loved the rustic/primitive decor, when the fog lifted we were able to see a beautiful view of the lake and saw 4 deer below the cottage. Loved that there was a fireplace and seating out on the porch that overlooked the property and lake, it's just unfortunate that the weather didn't cooperate and was raining most of the weekend. The hot tub was so relaxing and everything about our stay was so peaceful; and the towels were THE softest towels in the world. We'll definitely be back and we'll be recommending the Dancing Crow Cottage to all we know!

The cottage was beautiful, just like the pictures show. Hot tub was amazing with a beautiful view. Everything you need is provided and perfect for two people, nice and cozy. Just loved the décor both inside and outside the cottage. We will definitely be back in the fall.

Thanks again for a relaxing New Years!
