Add Item Schafers Country Cottages
Since 1937, our cottages have welcomed travelers to the historic village of Aaronsburg nestled in the scenic, mountains of eastern Penns Valley. Our five recently restored, fully modernized, non-smoking cottages are among the few surviving "Family Cabins" that once flourished along highways throughout America. The Schafer family is committed to providing Family-Friendly accommodations in a quaint country setting. We welcome children in our cheerfully decorated yet simply furnished cottages. Our cottages are not fancy like a B&B nor are they primitive like a cabin in the woods. They are clean, casual and comfortable, providing all the comforts of home. All have their own private bath, fully equipped kitchen, guest-controlled heat & A/C, Cable TV, playground and Free pass to nearby public, heated pool in summer. Bath & bed linens provided. Kitchens feature dishes, utensils, cookware, microwave, toaster, & coffeemaker, coffee & condiments. A Guest Handbook & Recreation Guide that includes free maps & brochures of the area is provided in each cottage. The cottages are popular with fishermen, who come for the outstanding trout fishing in nearby creeks including Penns, Elk, Fishing, Spring, White Deer, & Spruce. Hunting, hiking, mountain biking, boating, swimming, horseback riding, picnicking, snow-mobiling, skiing, can all be enjoyed nearby. We are located just 4 miles from Woodward Sports Camp. We offer a special discount to Woodward Camp parents, visiting coaches, instructors, employees & their guests who stay 6 or more nights. Penns Valley is the home of several Amish sects. Horse-drawn buggies frequently clip-clop past your front porch. In the summer, visitors can sample Amish life by visiting the farmer's markets and shops where the Amish make and sell a variety of fresh produce, baked goods, quilts, crafts, and furniture. Central Pennsylvania artisans also have a reputation for beautiful art and handcrafts. Discover your next family heirloom at the numerous antique shops, galleries, flea markets, summer craft fairs, and quaint country gift shops within a short drive.
