The Dam Cottage is close to parks, great views, and art and culture. This completely restored Cottage is all season and is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). We are a short distance from Ricketts Glen State Park & Lake Jean, many covered bridges, Bell Bend Power Station, Bloomsburg State University & Geisinger Medical Center.

The space
Quiet and peaceful, the grove is little changed since the 1800's except for the addition of all the modern conveniences including Wi-Fi.
