traveler reviews for this ohiopyle cottage rental

Wonderful family outing

Review submitted: August 24, 2011   Date of arrival: August 11, 2011

My family had a truly wonderful time at the White House, located on the grounds of the Fernstone Retreat. We were a bit spoiled since we had the whole property to ourselves as we made a very, very last minute trip plan and there was no one else on the property. Nevertheless, I could imagine a larger group (we were only 5) making full use of the facilities on the grounds for a family reunion, multi-family vacation, or group staging grounds for accessing the local Ohiopyle region. While some of the areas did show their age (notably a very old tennis/basketball court), the enjoyable parts of the property are the warm buildings and the secluded outdoors setting. We fished (the pond was literally teeming with sunnies and bass),
enjoyed seeing a snake slither in the stream, played games in the game room and at the White House, had a fire and smores, tossed a frisbee and kicked a soccer ball in the enormous field, and had an all-around memorable time.
The White house is a quaint building on the property and comfortably sleep the 5 of us. The place was clean, with clean linens, towels, and facilities - as advertised. The Pit(gameroom) was a blast for the kids, but brush up on your bumper pool before you go. We did not have access to the Corral (main lodge), but did use the outdoor grill and picnic benches for a pleasant evening meal. It could easily seat the 35 people advertised as the capacity for the grounds.
