"OUR FIRST TWO SEASONS WERE A 5-STAR SUCCESS!" Before reading on, all reservation requests must be made thru www.fernwalk.com or www.hartzellhouse.com, our management partner.

Fernwalk is a comfortable and well-appointed 2-queen bedroom, 2-bath house centrally located and convenient to Fallingwater, Ohiopyle, Youghiogheny Lake and Deep Creek Lake, MD. It is located in the peaceful village of Addison, only 3 minutes from the main marina and boat ramp at Youghiogheny Lake. Walk to the historic Petersburg Tollhouse, the only hand-cut native stone tollhouse in Pennsylvania, or take a stroll back in time in this lovely quaint village.
This house was completely renovated in 2011 with your comfort and convenience in mind. Think of it as an upscale cottage with an eclectic mix of 1948, mission and prairie nuances. Although in a village setting, the view out nearly every window is peaceful.
After your day exploring the area grill up a perfect filet and relax on the large deck. Or, get out your book and enjoy one of the rockers on the porch off the sunroom while waiting for the moon to rise. After dark, the comfy couch and gas-log fireplace will provide a secure, relaxing, comfy and casually luxurious atmosphere. A flat screen TV and entertainment center is there for movies, sports, music and more. There are plenty of local dining and attraction resources available for you at Fernwalk, plus the computer is always at your fingertips.
When driving to town, it’s a cinch to find; it is less than a ¼ mile off Route #40, the National Pike, in a quiet little village on the old original pike... it’s like going back in time! Come… kick off your shoes and relax. Consider Fernwalk your new home away from home.
Fernwalk is managed by the Hartzell House B & B where an optional 5-star breakfast can be reserved when booking. Treat yourself to at least one fabulous breakfast while you are visiting! It's only a one-minute walk to first class hospitality. Take a peek at what they offer: http://hartzellhouse.com/dining.htm

I recently stayed at the Hartzell House B&B;, and several of my family members stayed at Fernwalk next door. We spent much of our time together at Fernwalk; while the Hartzell B&B; is gorgeous in itself, it was nice to have the comforts of a house all to ourselves. Fernwalk has been beautifully renovated. The inside is exquisitely finished & decorated, with brand new wood floors, beautiful and comfortable furnishings, and a state-of-the-art kitchen and bathrooms. The owner has obviously gone to great lengths decorating the place and has included an extensive library. There is also a detailed binder full of information on local activities, hikes, restaurants and anything else you could possibly need. We had a wonderful time gathered in front of the fireplace and cooking and enjoying meals in the wonderful kitchen and dining area. Our elderly relatives were very comfortable at Fernwalk; they didn't seem to want to leave! I highly recommend Fernwalk and plan on returning soon.
P.S. - I am still figuring out how to use this website --- forgive me.
