• About the Owners


My name is Hope, and my husband Slater and I are grateful to be the owners of “The Cottage At Ligonier”. We bought this peaceful retreat after renting it for our own family vacation several years in a row. We loved the property, and when it came up for sale in 2009, we knew this was the perfect Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands get-away for us !

We have three grown children and one little grandson, and the love of nature and the arts run deep through our family. Our children are hikers, backpackers, mountain climbers, runners, distance cyclers, dancers, snowboarders and lovers of the great outdoors ! My husband and I enjoy traveling and meeting new people. “The Cottage At Ligonier” has become a well loved relaxing vacation haven for our own family, as well as guests from all over the world ! Our family has hosted 4 short-term French exchange students over the years, and we’ve been blessed to share this beautiful property with them, too.

I handle all the booking details and love getting acquainted with guests over the phone and/or via email. “The Cottage At Ligonier” is our vacation home, and we welcome you to make your own cherished vacation memories here in this beautiful woodsy setting !
