Fifteen new cottages have been built in the Cain Hollow area of the park. These new 600-square-ft. full service, three-season cottages feature a bathroom, and comfortably sleep 4-5 with one full size bed, one twin bed and one full size futon. They will also include linens and kitchen utensils.

“We’re hoping the first seven will be ready by the end of May, with the remaining eight ready two weeks after,” said Mark Barbera of ASP Partners LLC, the licensee for development of the cottages inside the park. (ASP Partners was also responsible for building the newer Bova and Parallel cottages inside the park, although Barbera notes the new cottages are smaller.)

Nestled in the hills behind Quaker Lake, Barbera said the cottages offer spectacular views of the valley. “People will love the location,” he said.

The cottages can be reserved at once they’re completed; stay tuned to the park’s Facebook page or the Friends of Allegany State Park’s Facebook page for info as it becomes available.
