There are steps up to the cottage. Children under 5 may stay for free. Just don't include them in the number of guest staying.
My mom and I were on a road trip to NY and this was the perfect spot to stop and rest for the night. Rick and Lerma were there when we arrived (had no problem accomodating our evening arrival) and showed us around. They were warm and friendly, and even assisted us with parking our moving truck since it was a bit large and hard to park. Their home and surrounding area is so peaceful, a perfect nature respite. The cottage was clean and cozy, exactly as described. Although we were only there for one evening and had to depart early the next morning, I would definitely return for a longer stay to enjoy the river and local restaurants and shops. Thanks Rick and Lerma!
We wanted a quiet, peaceful weekend getaway and that is exactly what we got. Rick and his wife were gracious, the Stone Cottage was cozy and comfortable, and our weekend was great. This was our first Air B&B experience and Rick and Lerma made sure it won't be our last.
Rick and Lerma were gracious hosts and the space is very private and restful. I hope to come back again with my wife some time!
The listing was just what it said, nice neighborhood, quiet, just loved it there.
My stay at Stone Cottage came amidst a very hectic schedule and as such, I was communicating with Richard often and was always surprised that his response came almost immediately. I arrived around 8:30 PM to find my apartment well lit from inside and out and it was apparent I could have simply gone about my business but I chose instead to ring the bell at the main house where I was met by Richard and his wife. I needed to make quick arrangements for dinner (no problem, thank you Richard). I found the apartment to be exactly as described and I have to remark that it was immaculately clean, and extremely comfortable. The next morning Richard suggested I try the Foxburg Golf Course (Oldest in continual operation in the US) Its a 9 hole course, very well kept with mature trees-very picturesque. I was back at the cottage by noon to check out-spent some time with Richard discussing ourboard motors(!) and his car - same as mine - he diagnosed a problem I'm having-cant wait to get it fixed. I'm telling these aside stories in a manner of saying that Richard and his wife are a very friendly engaging couple and, if I lived closer, I suspect we'd actually become friends. The area, by the way, is gorgeous Pennsylvania countryside - hills and valleys with a great number of Amish farms. GO THERE for a quiet peaceful trip.

About the Host, Richard
We are a married couple living in Foxburg PA. In a 100 year old stone home that was originally part of the old (1789) Fox estate! We re-moldeled our stone cottage about 1 year ago, for my sons to use when they would fly in from Colorado to visit. But found out that they only come for about 3 days a year as they are so busy with there own car business in Longmont Co. So we now are part of Airbnb!
The home and garage are about 100 years old. We were living in Delray Beach Fl. but found it to busy and crowded, for us, so we have relocated here to a more remote area in Western PA.. There are no Mac Donald's, 7/11's, gas stations nor crowds. From the Cottage we see bears, turkey's and deer etc, We love the quite and remote settings. The Foxburg golf course is the oldest in USA and you can walk to it from the cottage, in less then 5 minutes. Also you can canoe the Allegheny River, fish, ride the bike trails, and walk along a old railroad bed that runs along the Allegheny River. We will welcome you and enjoy having someone use our cottage. I ran my own airplane dealership (Piper) for 40 years in Boulder Colorado, before moving to Delray Beach FL. Lerma grew up in Cebu in the Philippines, we have been married for 4 years. We have a condo in Delray Beach Florida, that we have listed now on this site, for your use, if you wish. Thanks from Lerma and Rick
