    5/5 Excellent


    What an amazing little piece of heaven. Beautiful property inside and out. The owners were so nice and easy to reach. No problems with anything at all. The antiques used to decorate the home gave it such character . We just loved it. Everything was very clean. Everything on the top of kitchen cabinets were so cute and all perfectly clean also. We are looking at our calendar to see when we could visit again!!!

    "Heaven's Country Hideaway"

    This house had everything that you would need if you left your house to get away in a quiet country setting. The beautiful hills that surround this place, the horses in the pastures, and most of all the quietness that drapes all around you. The owners thought of everything people need to make this a perfect getaway. My family enjoyed everything Hoot Owl Hill had to offer. Thanks Again, a memorable time, Ron W 10/15/18

    Truly enjoyed our stay at Hoot Owl Hill. The home and property had “everything” we needed for our 3 day fall get away. Hats off to the Heintzelman’s. Always, Bob & Sydney Maull

    Privacy on top of Hoot Owl Hill

    This is the perfect place to unwind and regroup. Very spacious house with anything you might need. A fully equipped kitchen, porch, deck and a fire pit behind the waterfall, yes, you read that correctly. The view is of hills behind you, pasture with horses in front , fields and woods around you. The furnishings and the beds are very comfortable and the artwork will have you oohing and aahing . We are already planning our next trip. The serenity of this place will send you on your way to conquer the world or at least the work week. The hosts, Darrin and Julie will feel like family. Thank you for this great getaway.
