Super Summer Special

We are having such a fun summer and want to share our happiness with all our friends, family and guests!!!  Book either of our 2 Cottages, Springs Desire or Falls Kiss for a Mon/Tues or Wed/Thurs for only $125 per night!!!!  The beautiful Cottages remind you of tiny houses as they are self contained with a kitchenette, penninsula fireplace, queen bed and Roman style jacquizzi tubs as well as other amenities.  Normally they rent for $180 per night, but this is our Super Summer Special and you can be relaxing on your very own back porch for only $125!!!  With the money you will be saving, you will be able to enjoy some of our wonderful Amish restaurants!!!  To get this Super Summer Special, you MUST call my cell phone at 724-322-1383 as the system will charge you the higher amount.  We love our little slice of heaven and know you will to!!!  Come out and see the Gardens, listen to the birds by the waterfall and watch the buggies go by.....We look forward to seeing you and as always, many Blessings, Doug and Carol here at the Garden Gate.
