Sophronia Cottage:

I wish we could have stayed longer, this was our first time here and we will be back soon. We biked, hiked, swam, paddleboated, cooked out, had a campfire w/smores & soaked in that amazing hot tub. So much fun to have in so little time. This is the R&R that all four of us needed. Thank you for the cottage and amenities.

Excelsior Cottage:

In echoing my kids enthusiasm, we simply had an amazing time here. Just secluded enough, yet close to the lake. This is our second time here, we couldn't help but come back. What a retreat for our family ! We absolutely will make our way back here sooner than later. The scenery around Green Valley Cottages is unbelievable - be sure to drive scenic 40 for another beautiful treat !!

Francena Cottage - July 11-13

This was our first stay at Francena Cottage. The cottage felt like something out of a movie and we found ourselves relaxing immediately. The property is gorgeous - we enjoyed the hammock, hot tub, bikes and paddleboat. On our last night, we went star gazing by the lake, and it was amazing ! Thank you for the most romantic experience thes tired parents have had in a long, long time !! We will certainly be back again.

I don't want to leave and I'm jealous ! All of those people who have been coming here for years ! How I wish we had found it sooner ! But that just means this is the first of many more visits for us.
Lory Cottage is what I envision when I hear the word "cottage". the décor and amenities are perfect. The setting is tranquil. Without a doubt, we will visit again. Thank You !

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Sophronia Cottage! We celebrated our 18th anniversary on 10/22 and this was my surprise trip for my husband. We really enjoyed the fireplace in the bedroom (I may put that on my honey-do list for our own home!) and the hot tub was very relaxing! Everything was very clean and cozy! We saw deer in the front yard and on the lane to the pond stood a buck! Thanks for sharing your lovely property with us! We are already thinking about a return trip.

Homeowner Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Teresa! We're looking forward to your return.Green Valley Cottages

Oh my where to start .. loved my 1st (of many to come I'm sure) stay at Sophronia! Just some feedback to pass along - I had no complaint in the shower, however, my beau is 6ft 200+ lbs and suggested maybe a moveable shower head? Also wanted me to ask about the TV and maybe leaving instructions he could not figure it out. Again, I didn't think there should even be one in there, so I didn't have a problem with it not working (lol) and last but not least we loved loved lovedddddddddd the hot tub but felt bad because it was ON when we got there and ON when we left .. we could not figure out how to turn it off for you! We will definitely be back and thank you soooooooooooooo much for that little piece of heaven you shared w/us and many before us! That was the neatest experience we both ever had! Peace and quiet does the soul good! :o)

Homeowner Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Dani and Tony! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Green Valley.Thank you for the suggestions for improvement. We will be attending to those.We look forward to your return to our little piece of heaven very soon!Lola at Green Valley Cottages

We just returned from our wonderful weekend at Sophronia Cottage. The cottage was so cozy and is every bit as charming in person as it looks in the pictures! We had a great time fishing, hiking, walking through the stream looking for crayfish and playing games. Our girls were so sad to leave and are already planning our adventures for next year!!!! Thanks for sharing your "hideaway" with us!

Homeowner Response: Thanks so much for taking time to comment on your stay with us. Our treat as owners is to read the guestbook in each of our cottages and learn about our guests time with us. Green Valley is a special place and our guests are special people. We hope you are able to return and enjoy some quiet time in our enchanted place. Thanks Again..... Owners - Green Valley Cottages
