Sometimes you and your pet pig just need to get away… take a vacation, relax, see sights, shop, go on a picnic.  How would you like to stay in a classic historic cottage, surrounded by over 1000 acres of pristine woods, fields, streams, and an abundance of wildlife?  You can see where the American Revolution took place.  You can go antiquing, have an adventurous experience, and find your inner self.

All the above is possible at The Cottage of Ross Mill Farm.  You and your pet pig are invited to stay in the Cottage, built in 1696 and considered one of the oldest buildings in the greater Bucks County area.  Susan Magidson and her late husband Richard opened this unique place as a cozy get-away in June of 1999.

“We wanted to share its beauty and serenity with others and to provide a place for people to go, to vacation or visit, with their pet pig… a place where pigs would be welcome.  It’s an ideal place;  the main room has only one step, and there’s a fireplace where piggies can cozy up on cold days, or they can sun themselves in the enclosed sun room.” said Susan.  “Pigs love the outdoors;  their natural habitat is the forest.  They enjoy foraging about, meandering among the trees and bushes, nesting in the leaves… it brings out their inner pig… think of it as Zen for you and your pig.”

The Cottage is nestled in the rolling hills of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, about an hour north of Philadelphia, adjacent to the Ross Mill Farm.  The Farm is internationally known for its care of pet pigs.  Cottage guests are welcome to visit the farm and can inquire about volunteering if that’s something they’d like to do.

The 1696 Cottage has been meticulously maintained in its original condition.  In 1941, “modern inconveniences”  were added, and today it features a full kitchen and bath.  The main room provides the primary living space.  Ascend a spiral staircase to modest sleeping quarters;  then take breakfast on the sun porch.  The Cottage sleeps six and is open year round.  Stay for a couple of days, a week, or longer.  It’s an experience you will long remember.  It’s a place to touch nature;  a place for you and your pig to enjoy.
