Welcome to The Cottage at Ligonier !
Please follow these instructions to ensure that your visit will be as enjoyable as possible.
We, as well as future guests, will be grateful ! The Cottage is old and beloved, so please respect it.
***Check-In Time Is Anytime After 3:00pm and Check-Out Is By 11:00am***
While we welcome gatherings of families and friends for events such as birthday parties, family reunions/ picnics, team building retreats, wedding lodging and so forth, please note that our vacation rental home and property is not a “Party House”. If you are looking for a “Party House”, we are, unfortunately, not the right fit for you. We expect guests to respect our wonderful, peaceful wooded retreat.
Please respect our neighboring homes throughout the wooded Powdermill area, and keep music and noise down between 9:00pm and 8:00am.
Though we are animal lovers ourselves, The Cottage At Ligonier has a NO PET policy.
Please, no driving on the Cottage lawn (including for loading and unloading cars). There is ample parking in the driveway and by the Rec building.
No smoking while IN The Cottage or IN the Rec Building and no cigarette butts on the ground. Please dispose of them properly.
You will find clean linens ready and folded for you at the end of each bed. Should you need more pillows and blankets, you will find them in the bedroom dormer closets and dresser drawers.
Other than water, no food or drink in the upstairs bedrooms, please.
We own the woods out back all the way to RT 381. Feel free to take a stroll and enjoy the songbirds ! Guests frequently see deer in our yard and in the woods.
You will find chairs and hot dog sticks in the Rec Building for use around the bonfire pit. Please put them away in the Rec Building when done.
