This single level, 1,000 sq-ft open floor plan cottage has beautiful views of the water.

The space
The cottage is located on Pool six on the Allegheny river. There is a Marina just 1/4 mile away to get gas for your boat, and Kittanning is 5 miles north on the river and has a wonderful public dock giving the boater full access to the resturants and stores in town. There is a public boat launch just downstream of the cottage large enough to handle any size of boat. If you like to bike ride, the cottage is located the end of the armstrong trail. This trail extends 25 miles north along the Alllegheny river for a spectacular ride. Lastly, Crooked creek is an excellent place to go kayaking. If you enjoy a calm paddle, you can put you kayaks in at Crooked Creek dam and float 6 miles until you get back to the cottage.

Guest access
Guests have access to the yard in front of the cottage. There is free parking behind, but be sure to leave a pathway for cars to pass.

Other things to note
While there is no horsepower limit to docking at this cottage. There is a height limit for boats. The railroad bridge at the end of crooked creek only permits boats up to 10 feet tall (above water line) to pass underneath. Boats taller than 10 feet will have to be docked at the Rosston Eddy Marina.
