The Valentine Cottage Interior
NOTE: The living room, dining room and Kitchen are newly remodeled.
Living Room. The cottage has basic cable, which provides ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, FOX, UPS and a few cable networks. There is also a VHS player and 50 or 60 tapes.
The other side of the living room.
Pellet Stove. The pellet stove is fully operational, although unneeded in the summer. The antique bin has several bags of pellets ready to go.
Dining Room. The table can be expanded to seat 6 comfortably.
Kitchen. The refrigerator is pretty small, but adequate for short stays. The freezer isn't big enough for a half gallon of ice cream, so you'll have to go over to the Jigger Shop to get your fill. There is a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and full array of cooking utensils and dishware.
More Kitchen and Dining Room
Upstairs Laundry Room. Washer and Dryer on hand. A real convenience and hard to find in Gretna rentals.
Master Bedroom. Brass double bed and air conditioned.
Bedroom #2. We call it the BLUE ROOM.
Bedroom #4. This one has the other air conditioning unit. On the very hottest days, if you run both air units and the ceiling fans upstairs, the cottage will stay plenty cool enough. Most summer days don't require that much effort. Mount Gretna is 5-10 degrees cooler than Harrisburg, so most summer days are very comfortable. But it's nice to know you have the climate control if you need it.
