The "cottage" is an early American building dating from the Federal Period. A traditional Pennsylvania field-stone schoolhouse, it was the first of the seven original one-room schoolhouses in Rockland Township. From the 19th century until the 1950s, it was a fully-functioning country school. The schoolhouse was converted to a cottage in the 1960s, but retains much of its original architecture and appointments, as well as a majestic catalpa tree planted to provide shade for the school children.

My wife and I stayed at the cottage in Dutch county, PA. We absolutely adored the cottage and spent time cooking in the kitchen and enjoying the warm and cozy cabin. The cabin is small and perfect for two people. The area is sufficiently quiet, but 30 minutes from other towns and restaurants. The kitchen is stocked with enough herbs, cookware, and equipment to make any meals. Definitely recommend for a romantic weekend away.

About the Host, Elizabeth
Friendly art historian/designer.
Born and raised in Asia, I love international design and traditional folk arts, which is why my spaces are eclectic, decorated in European, Pan-Asian, and Moroccan styles. One of the main reasons I like sharing my spaces is because, in this way, I am also sharing experiences and beauty I have encountered while traveling.
