PA Wilds Cabin! Surrounded by the Moshannon State Forest - "Roughing it" in Comfort
1200 Sqft Cottage hosted by Peggy
6 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 1 Bathroom

Overview

If you are looking for a place to escape and get back to nature with family and friends, we offer our three-bedroom mountain cabin. The unpaved lane from the main road deadends just past the cabin in the Moshannon State Forest providing access to nearly 200,000 acres of wooded mountain wilderness.

Situated on eight private acres, deer, turkey, fox and an occasional bear have been known to make their way past the Lodge. With luck, the creatures may decide to mosey through the yard during your stay.

Cedarwood Lodge is a charming post-and-beam cabin with a screened-in porch, small deck, picnic table, gas grill and campfire pit. Firewood is supplied for the indoor woodburner and for starting the pit fire. Guests are asked to gather firewood from the surrounding forest to keep the campfire blazing great for roasting hotdogs, marshmallows, and telling ghost stories. Our "Dark Skies" make star-gazing around the campfire a favorite activity.

Cedarwood is designed to be a "getaway with comfort" - the cabin has air conditioning, telephones, TV for playing DVD/VCR videos (no TV reception or internet access) and a fully-equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator, dishwasher and gas stove/oven. Bed and bathroom linens are provided, as are dishes, silverware, utensils, pots, pans and pantry basics such as coffee, tea, sugar, flour, salt, pepper and a few spices. For a final touch, we place our own homemade bread and muffins or coffee cake at the cabin for the first morning's breakfast. Guests renting the property only need to bring food and clothing. For reservations of seven nights and longer, housekeeping is provided weekly.

The cabin has beds for six in its three bedrooms: the loft bedroom has a queen bed, two bedrooms are on the first floor - one has a double bed, the other has bunk beds. There is space in the loft for setting up a queen-air bed (which is stored in the loft closet) or sleeping bags. The dining table seats 10 easily. There is one full bath with tub and shower.

The Cedarwood Lodge is a popular place to hold small family reunions or to use as a base camp to explore the natural surroundings for which the Pennsylvania Wilds is famous. Nearby Parker Dam and S.B. Elliott State Parks offer boating and swimming in Parker Lake in the summer, and snowmobiling and cross country skiing in the winter. The Elk Visitor\'s Center in Benezette is a scenic 30 minute drive. With the increasing popularity of elk viewing, this seems to have become a mandatory activity for at least one day of guest\'s visits. Hiking is also popular in the state forest and at the parks, as is fishing for trout, largemouth bass, sunfish and brown bullhead.

Refundable Damage Deposit
There is no damage deposit required. A valid credit card number is required as security for cost to repair or replace items due to damage caused by guests.

If cancelled less than 30 days before arrival, 100% of the reservation is charged unless the dates are re-booked in their entirety.

In addition to the $25 cancellation fee, there is a $10/month fee for each month or portion of a month the reservation has been held for guests. As an example: reservation is made 7 months in advance of arrival. Guest cancels exactly 60 days before their arrival date. The advance deposit would be refunded less $75.00 which consists of the $25 cancellation fee plus $10/month for the five months the property was held off the market.
Notes
No indoor smoking. Quiet hours from 10 PM to 8 AM. No loud music or partying.

One member of the party must be age 25 or older. A list of names, ages, addresses and phone numbers is required to be submitted at the time of reservation for groups of unrelated adults. No more than 6 unrelated adults may rent the cabin.
House Rules
No indoor smoking. Pets are generally permitted as long as number and type are cleared prior to stay. Pets are to be crated when left alone in the cabin. Pets are not permitted on the beds or upholstered furniture. Pet poo must be picked up from the yard and disposed of properly. Be aware that wild animals - fox, bear, deer, etc. inhabit the surrounding forest. It is good to keep a sharp eye on your pet if allowed to romp unleashed outside of the cabin. Cabin must be left in essentially the same condition in which it was found - ordinary wear and tear excepted.
