The 2-bedroom apartment has a queen bed in each room plus a sofa bed. Walking distance to Tioga River and antique dealers. Nearby - Mansfield University, Wellsboro, PA (home of the Laurel Festival and the Dickens Festival), the PA Grand Canyon, and great hiking, camping, and hunting areas. Please note - second floor - exterior stairs to reach apartment above our detached garage. Our house is next to the garage, but the apartment is totally separate from the house.
Completely private 2-bedroom apartment over our garage, behind our house. We are there if you need us, but you have a totally private space and free off-street parking adjacent to the stairs.
Apartment is fully furnished, including sheets, towels, kitchen linens, kitchen equipment (cups, bowls, plates, silverware, pots and pans, basic cooking tools, appliances: full-size refrigerator, range, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven), ironing board and iron, hair dryer. If you're wondering about something specific, please ask.
We provide an assortment of food (usually fresh fruit, granola bars, instant oatmeal, coffee/tea) at the beginning of your stay.
Garage doors: Since the apartment is over the garage, during ingress or egress, our garage door openers are QUITE loud in the apartment. It only lasts for about 30 seconds, but can be surprising if you aren’t expecting it. When we have guests, we do our best to be respectful and use them as little as possible, and only between 7:00am and 10:00pm. Since we are up and out early for work though, if you are with us on a weekday, you will likely hear them around 7:40am. Weather permitting, we sometimes park outside to try avoid the noise for our guests. Just want to be open and up front about it!
We now have reliable wifi and cable TV available in the apartment.
Additionally, we live in a cell-phone dead zone, but a couple miles north or south and you should have cell signal.
Full apartment, deck, free off-street parking.
We are normally around during stay if needed. We will let you know if we will not be available at all.

We are in the middle of downtown Covington, PA, in walking distant to several antique shops, and short driving distant to lots of great Northern Tier activities including state parks, Mansfield University, Mansfield, PA (home of the Fabulous 1890's Festival), Wellsboro, PA (home of the Laurel Festival and Dickens of a Christmas), Blossburg, PA (home of the Coal Festival). About 45 minutes north (35 miles) is Corning, NY (Corning Museum of Glass and quaint Gaffer District) and just beyond that is Watkins Glen (gorgeous waterfalls!) and the Finger Lakes (wine country!). To the south about 45 minutes is Williamsport, PA (home of the Little League World Series).
Dogs: (part 1) While we don't allow pets in the apartment, there is a dog boarder/groomer RIGHT across the street from the apartment. If you are interested in boarding your dog, please contact us and we will give you her contact information.
Dogs: (part 2) We have two big dogs of our own, who may be out in our (fenced) yard. They are very friendly but may bark as you are going up/coming down the apartment stairs.
Children (part 1): If you are traveling with young children, we do have a Pack-N-Play available and can get it set up for you if you let us know. Additionally, there is also a high chair and baby monitor available. Inside the coffee table is a set of wooden Thomas the Tank Engine tracks and trains, and there should be a few children's books on the bookshelf.
Children (part 2) We have a bunch of children who may be out in the yard. They don’t bite either, but, like the dogs, may make some racket or run over to say "hi" to you if they see you. We’re quite strict with bedtimes for our kids, so they shouldn’t be disruptive to your sleep.
Extended stay: if you would like to stay longer than 6 nights, please contact us so we can make an agreement about laundering of sheets and towels and general apartment cleaning.
Air conditioning: We do not have central air, but we do provide a wall unit in the summer.
Chickens: We also have chickens and ducks (in the front part of our yard) and they can be really fun and relaxing to watch. If you are interested in seeing the chickens (be sure NOT to wear your best shoes…) let us know and we can arrange a little tour for you of our chicken yard. Carolyn is really into gardening and permaculture and is working to create an area where chickens and plants work in a symbiotic relationship. She would LOVE to talk to you about this. The chicken yard is especially nice in the summer. During the winter- not so much.
No illegal activities.
We live in an old Victorian house in rural Covington PA with our 7 children. Both of us are teachers, and we recently switched from having long-term tenants in the apartment on the back of our property to using Airbnb, and we are excited about meeting guests from all over the world! Our hope is to provide a private, comfortable space for our guests, and to be able to accommodate families who may be traveling through the area. We live next door and will be available if you need anything, but the apartment is completely private and is located on the second floor over the garage.
