Amazing! Worth every penny!!

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Tammy were so great through the entire process of renting their beautiful Mt. Gretna home. The home was so charming and met our exact needs! It had everything and then some! What a perfect weekend getaway! I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a restful and relaxing stay with family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for that nice review. We're glad you had such a good time for your family get together. I had to laugh when I saw the two hammock sleeping tents strung between the two huge pines off the porch. Having slept in those hammocks a few times in the past, I think my back would tell me now to stick with the pillow top mattresses in the cottage. Again thanks for staying with us and have a great fall season. Bob & Tammy

One FIne Landing, the best rental, ever!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you have read the other reviews, you will know by now that the Travitz's cottage, One Fine Landing, is the place to stay when you visit Mt. Gretna, PA. It is hardly a cottage;it is a wonderful, awesome, beautiful home away from home.

I wanted to take my girlfriends away for a little get away and researched places in Mt. Gretna. One Fine Landing had everything one could possibly want or need and then some. I made a reservation for a weekend in September.

When we arrived, we walked into a cozy, homey, all ready for us and clean as clean could be home. We all were so excited with the feeling of welcome we felt immediately. And we basically never left, except to walk around the wonderful community that is Mt. Gretna. We were very, very happy campers.

And make sure you meet the couple who make all this possible, Tammy and Bob Travitz. They are so nice and so full of energy as they do most of the work themselves. They are amazing.

So, I guess you know by now that the weekend was a huge success with plans to do it again --- in Mt. Gretna at One Fine Landing.

Owner's Response: Wow, what a nice review. I hope we can continue to meet all those expectations! We do pride ourselves on having a clean, well maintained cottage for our guests. We love meeting new folks and telling them all about the history of our cottage and the Mt. Gretna area. You and your girlfriends were a delight to chat with and we did have quite a few laughs when we found out you knew friends of ours who had a cottage near us. Meeting new folks and having good times, that's what makes this community so special. Again thanks for that great review and we'll have a larger jar of my "Grandma Tillie's" apple butter waiting for you on your return. Bob & Tammy

Quintessential Mt. Gretna Cottage with modern flair

  • 5 of 5

My family owned this cottage from 1990-1995, and Bob and Tammy have brought it into the modern age. The renovations and upgrades they have made to the house are wonderful, making it a great retreat for a large family such as mine. The large number of rooms and the size of the beds make the property unique in Mt. Gretna.

Bob was also a huge help during our stay, and we enjoyed speaking with him about the cottage and his family's history in PA.

We will return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments. It was a pleasure getting to know you and finding out more of the history of "One Fine Landing." We have been on a quest to find old pictures of "One Fine Landing" so thank you for the picture of the cottage from the 1992 "Mt. Gretna Tour of Homes." We're glad you approve of the renovations that we did as we try to keep the charm of Mt. Gretna in all the work we do to cottages here in Mt. Gretna. Again many thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon here in Mt. Gretna Campmeeting.

We are so lucky to have stumbled upon Mt. Gretna!

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved this cottage! It was very accommodating for our rather large group. The cottage was big enough that after a long day at Hershey there was plenty of room for us to spread out. The owners were gracious hosts and very responsive. This property is truly a jem. You can tell how much love was put into the decor and amenities. The cottage oozes charm and all of the rooms are well appointed. From the chefs kitchen to the heated throws for chilly nights out on the deck - not one detail was overlooked. We look forward to making this an annual pilgrimage. We visited out of season and weren't able to enjoy the lake and the local theater but intend on taking part of the summer festivities our next time around.

A Beautiful House in Beautiful, Unique Mt. Gretna

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I gathered at One Fine Landing for a reunion weekend and it was absolutely wonderful. Other reviewers have noted that the pictures don't do the house justice and I would agree. The home is beautiful, impeccably clean, and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked and there is plenty of room in the bedrooms/living spaces. Although the weather did not cooperate for us, I can imagine that the wraparound porch would be wonderful in the summer months. Mt. Gretna itself is unique and the pedestrian streets are excellent for quick walks. Bob and Tammy were very gracious from the start and provided us with all of the information we could possibly need to prepare for and enjoy our stay. I highly recommend One Fine Landing and hope to stay again if ever in or around Mt. Gretna.

Beautiful, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous home! Pictures, although beautiful, don't do it justice. We had rented another home in Mount Gretna for the week and we found it to be insufficient, sub-par, and disappointing so we had decided to leave half way through the week. We were there to celebrate our daughter's high school graduation in hopes of having a family cookout and a relaxing getaway, close to home. Needless to say, she was disappointed and we didn't want to ruin her vacation so I looked online and found One Fine Landing and gave Tammy and Bob a call, praying that they would have availability, and they did. They were so accommodating and friendly and understanding about our situation. From the moment we stepped onto the porch and into the home, it felt comfortable and cozy and clean and beautifully furnished. The kitchen was fully stocked, the bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms were beautiful and modern and spacious. The wrap around porch had ample room for relaxing/reading/solcializing. It felt like walking into your own home, only better! We absolutely loved it and hope to stay again soon. Thank you so much for a great experience!
