Nestled in the woods ten minutes from the village and ski resorts, this inviting log cabin transports you to a private, lush retreat. The cabin has been recently updated with new carpeting and upgraded hot tub.
The main level bedroom has a king sized bed and a flat screen TV. There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen size bed. The upstairs loft, with a full size futon, TV and DVD player, makes a excellent play area for the kids. A queen size pullout sofa in the living room provides additional sleeping space. There are two full baths, one on each level.
In the winter months return from a day of skiing, hiking or shopping and relax in front of a beautiful 16 foot stone fireplace, or enjoy the outdoor hot tub.
In the summer months there’s mountain biking, boating and hiking. When you return you can open all your windows for a fresh mountain breeze or you can use the central air conditioning. You'll be entirely restored for the next day's activities.
My wife and I spent a late summer weekend at this great cabin with two other couples. Everyone enjoyed the quiet, wooded setting with a spacious deck for grilling and star gazing. The hot tub was a big plus for tired mountain bikers. The well-equipped kitchen was ideal for a birthday dinner cooked in house. Comfortable furniture and beds, proximity to Pittsburgh, and a quick drive to town and trails make this a five-star rental.
The cabin was great. Everything was very high quality and working perfectly, and the cabin was clean. The TV and stereo were very well set up and much higher end than most rental properties. The cabin is not far from Holiday Valley, which is what we were using it for, I want to say it was about a 10 minute drive. The hot tub was great, although it was slightly smaller than I expected (it could comfortably fit 4 people). Dealing with the owner was painless.
There are two cautions I would throw out there:
1) There is very little soundproofing in floors/walls, it's basically just a layer of wood, so privacy is somewhat compromised if that's important to you. Not a big minus, just something to be aware of.
2) The cabin is at the top of a steep hill with tight turns that gets snowed on before everything else so it can be quite difficult to get to. I would say either 4WD or snow tires or tire chains are an absolute must in winter. I am very experienced with heavy snow driving and think most people overestimate how often these snow driving aids are needed, but they're needed here.
Overall I'm very happy with my stay and definitely would recommend the cabin.
The cabin was beautiful and so well equipped with everything that we needed. We were glad to have a quiet secluded home, even though it meant driving to the slopes each morning (but thank goodness we had four wheel drive when it got so icy!) The beds, chairs and couch were so comfortable and there were enough chairs at the table for everyone to sit and eat together. I would recommend this home to everyone and plan on returning as soon as I'm in the area again! Thank you so much!
Great location and laid-out cabin in the woods!
Very secluded yet minutes from the slopes and town. The kitchen renovation - turned out fantastic, and the new hot tub was excellent.
Can't wait to come back! We are planning another family retreat in the spring and everyone wants to come back to your cabin.
