Packing List

What to bring:

  • All toiletries including towels, washcloths, toilet paper, soaps, and shampoos
  • Kitchen towels, wash cloths, and any paper products you may want – such as: paper plates, paper towels, and coffee filters (standard round 12 cup coffee pots)
  • Sheets and pillow cases, not sleeping bags, are required for all cottages.  Bed sizes are listed on each cottage page. (Linens are provided for Cottages #10 and #11.)
  • Slippers. To keep things as nice and as clean as possible, our cottages are “shoes off” rentals.
  • Plastic chairs and picnic tables are at each cottage.  If you prefer a different type of outside chair, feel free to bring it with you.
  • Blankets for outdoors. (All Hide-A-Way bedding must stay inside the cottage.)
  • Trash bags (dumpster on site)
  • Groceries
  • Bikes
  • Fishing supplies


What NOT to bring:

  • While we love your fur babies (we have 2 – Porscha & Jules), we’re very sorry to say that we do not allow pets.
  • Kitchen supplies (Heavy duty stainless steel pots and pans are provided, but you may want to bring your favorite non-stick pan.)
  • Firewood (We supply about 6-8 hours of burning time for a two night stay.  You may purchase more if needed, for only $15/box.  Pennsylvania state law prohibits transferring firewood from county to county  to prevent harmful, tree-killing insects from being introduced into new areas, so do not bring any firewood with you.)
  • Campers or RV’s
  • ATV’s and Dirt Bikes are not permitted unless cleared in advance with Hide-A-Way.
  • Tents are not permitted unless cleared in advance with Hide-A-Way.
  • Sleeping bags are NOT permitted on bedding, only linens, no exceptions!  If linens are not used, there is an automatic $25 charge for cleaning bedding.
