Person renting the cottage/house must be 18 years of age with photo ID and must be present at check in.
All cottages are reserved on a weekly basis until May 1, when they are opened up to less than weekly rentals. Previous guests receive a renewal letter in December and must reserve their same week/cottage by January 1st each year. Once reserved, a 50% deposit is then due by January 31st to hold the reservation. Cottages 8, 8A, 9, 10, 11 and 12 are rented Saturday to Saturday. Cottages 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 7A are rented Sunday to Sunday.
On January 2nd, cottages for which a renewal reservation has not been made are opened up to the general public for weekly rentals. On February 1st, renewals that have not made deposits are opened up and your week is lost. Requests for cottages are taken on a first come, first served basis. Please email with your request and you will be contacted either the first week in January or the first week of February with available options.
Deposit checks should be made out to Stiefvater’s Cottages LLC and mailed to 4200 Paxton St, Harrisburg PA 17111. The balance is due upon arrival and can then be paid by check, cash or credit card.
We require a 2 week prior notice for any cancellations. Your deposit will be refunded only if the cottage is rented. A $25 service charge applies to all refunded deposits.
First time guests are required to provide a $50-$150 security/cleaning deposit at the time of the reservation. A credit card is required for this deposit. The deposit will not be charged on check out if the cottage is left in the same (or better) condition upon check out. Guests are required to clean the kitchen (wipe out refrigerator, toaster oven and microwave), wash all dishes and put back in the cupboards. The shower, toilet and sink must also be cleaned. Please remake the beds, putting the comforters on the beds. Please sweep and mop throughout. Cleaning supplies are provided. All garbage must be put in the proper trash cans upon check out.
