'...But the best things were the walks along the logging roads, beaver ponds, flowers starting to bloom, and the peace and tranquility of the backwoods.' Ralph, Nancy, Tucker, Keisee and Marlie, from Novelty, Ohio

'Our drive was 5.5 hours, but it was worth it. We are sad to leave this hideaway to return to the stress of the city.' Amy and Pete from New York City

'We wanted to renew our friendships, enjoy nature, and escape the hustle and bustle of life. We wanted to laugh and talk late into the night. Here at Cedarwood, it all happened.' Barb, Ruth, and Diane from Evans City, PA

'We enjoyed three of the best days of our lives here! This is an absolutely wonderful place.' Chuck and Lori - newlyweds

Guestbook comments from the owner
From the Journal: "Our children were part of the Region 22 Championship for the World Tang Soo Do Association. We're from the Pittsburgh Area and with 3 kids our goal was to find a more private place to stay instead of a hotel. This place was perfect. We loved our stay! The breads provided were delicious! The kids loved the upstairs room - it was like a tree house! We would definitely love to come back sometime - maybe kid-free - lol. Thank your for such great hospitality. God bless you and yours."

WINTER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Being at this cabin was so relaxing it was like you were actually at your own home. It had everything you could possible need at the cabin. Dubois and Clearfield being near by allowed you to step out and get a bite to eat if like to eat out. We were able to snowmobile right from the cabin how convenient. The fire at night just put you to sleep. Can not wait to go back.

GREAT ANNIVERSARY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and we decided to get out of the city and stay the weekend at Cedarwood Lodge. We had a few ideas to choose from but boy did we make the right decision!

The cabin was awesome. It was very peaceful, beautiful, quiet and scenic which was a great escape from the chaos of city-life here in Pittsburgh. It gave us exactly what we needed... Time to ourselves to reflect back over 10+ years together with no interuption, no kids (sorry guys), no internet & no phones ringing off the hook. We simply focused on one another and had a beautiful moment in time at a beautiful place.

Peggy is, hands down, one of the best hosts we ever had the pleasure of booking from. She is a "real person"...someone who is caring, hospitable and who cares about the comfort of her guests. When u call her, SHE answers and not a robotic or automated system that keeps u waiting on hold forever.

Along with the wonderful cabin itself and the beautiful forest surrounding it, Peggy also gave us many suggestions to take advantage of while we were up there. We went to Parker Dam, Bilgers Rocks and the Elk visitor center. But it was her recommendation to eat at Moenas for an anniversary dinner that really hit the nail on the head. What a night with my wife....

We will always remember this trip. It might sound trivial to others but to us, it was and always will be, a time to cherish forever. And we have the many pictures to prove it.

Thanks Peggy!

Owner's Response: I wish there was a venue for reviewing guests....then owners of vacation rentals could give 5-star reviews to guests like you and your wife!

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your time at Cedarwood Lodge. The PA Wilds region has more attractions and activities than most people realize as you discovered during your weekend here. And though the area is becoming more popular for vacationers, it is not crowded or overly commercialized. Which makes it nice for visitors who want to have a get-away that really feels like they are getting away!

Thank you for celebrating your 10th anniversary at Cedarwood Lodge and sharing some of the highlights in your very kind review. Do come back!

BEAUTIFUL CABIN

  • 5 of 5
Cabin was very clean, very well equipped and maintained. Delicious bread and coffee cake awaited our arrival. Only disappointment was loft area not easily accessible for older people. A spiral stair case would be nice. Nicest cabin we have ever rented.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are very pleased you rated the cabin highly and enjoyed your visit to the PA Wilds! I appreciate your suggestion regarding a spiral stairs. We have spent time trying to determine how we might provide easier access to the Loft bedroom. It seems that every solution considered (spiral stairs; alternating stair steps; regular stairs, etc.) would take up so much space in the open kitchen-dining-living room that it would negatively impact enjoyment of and limit the usable room in that area. So, for now, we hope the two first floor bedrooms available for use by those who cannot utilize the current means of access to the Loft will be satisfactory for our guests.

Thank you again for taking the time to review Cedarwood Lodge.

GREAT LODGE TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE OUTDOORS.

  • 4 of 5
Cedarwood Lodge was a great place to stay. The Lodge was clean and furnishings were perfect. We enjoyed exploring the property and campfires. The lodge is a short distance to Parker Dam State Park and the local elk herd. Peggy was great to work with.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Cedarwood Lodge. With many outdoor activities in proximity, it can be an ideal location from which to explore the PA Wilds - it sounds like you discovered a few! One of my favorite things to do there is build a fire - indoors or outdoors - then sit, stare at the flames and let the peace soak in to my bones. Thank you for submitting your review, Linda - it is much appreciated.

PEACEFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. There were nice trails to take walks. One morning when we were eating breakfast a doe walked around the cabin, the granddaughter was very excited to see that. We went to find elk 2 days and nights and got to see a lot of animals. The cabin was very nice we even started a fire in the stove in the cabin because it got chilly at night and it was so cozy to sit there and see the fire burning.When we had to leave everyone was so depressed,it was so nice to get away from tv,internet,and cell phone and just spend time with one another! Thank you for everything I would recommend you property to anyone and we hope to rent it again sometime!

GREAT CABIN AND BACKROADS!!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to thank you for the cabin, muffins, generator help, etc. We had a great time riding the backroads in the area. We rode about 350 miles on Fri/Sat. The cabin was even better than expected. We saw deer and turkeys while out. No elk, but since we were on motorcycles, that was fine! I think we will pass on WV for awhile and start heading over your way. I will be in touch for our next trip! Thanks again, Dave
