    Shelley was extremely helpful and quick to respond. We absolutely loved this little cabin!! Just the bear necessities , lol, nothing extra to distract from the beautiful, peaceful surroundings. This is the perfect place to unplug and unwind!! We will definitely rent again! Thanks Shelley!!

    Loved this cozy cabin. Had everything we needed. Nice and quiet, very clean. The host was very nice and responds quickly. The view of the stars were awesome! The only thing I would note as a downfall is the hot water didn't last, by the time my wife rinsed her shampoo out of her hair the hot water was gone. But other than that everything including the host was great. Thank you again Shelley for a great experience.

    Quiet and scenic, the cabin is basic but has everything you need. Perfect for a couple for a few days. Close to the Grand Canyon parks and activities, and near enough to Wellsboro for supplies. The creek is nearby as well. Nice owners. We were very pleased overall.

    When inquiring the property owner responded quickly to me and was quickly and simple to rent. Cabin was cozy. It fit in nicely with the beautiful country . It was very quiet except for the occasional noice from US 6.. I liked the no service on phone! No electronics distractions.

    Great little cottage! Ideal for two of us and turned out to be a perfect location for our activities of hiking at Colton Run State Park, biking the rail trail along Pine Creek & kayaking local lakes!

    We had a very beautiful and peaceful stay at this little one room cottage. We enjoyed the beautiful starlit sky and scenic views that the area has to offer. The host was gracious and the house was very clean. Be aware that we had no cell phone coverage at the house or anywhere else in the area (Verizon). So do not rely on phone GPS navigation and be sure to print out the instructions on paper before you arrive. Thank you for a lovely, peaceful and quiet off the grid little vacation.

    Get away!

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend getaway at Chickadee Cottage. It was such a cute place to relax and unwind. Plenty to see and do in the area, including biking and hiking on the Pine Creek trail! We had a great back yard that was private, a new deck to relax on while having our coffee in the morning, a great fire pit to warm us up on the cooler nights, and the bonus was the babbling creek a few yards away! It was a wonderful, peaceful retreat. Plenty of space for the two of us. The owners were terrific and provided us with all the information we needed to feel right at home! Thank you Shelley! I'm sure we'll be back again soon!

    Small cabin but included what we needed for a nice, comfortable, private getaway. Very clean and well appointed. Nice deck for enjoying our morning coffee and fire pit for enjoyable evening relaxation. Other cabins around but situated so we could have our privacy. Close to activities we wanted to do during the weekend. Thanks for a very pleasant experience!
