CHARMING, QUIET, CABIN, TOTAL REHAB, AWESOME FLY FISHING PENNS CREEK !!

Woodward Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms sleeps up to 12

Charming Cabin located ON the famous Penns Creek in Centre County. (on the Trophy Trout section and 5 minute walk through the abandoned train bridge and tunnel to the Fly Fishing only Special Regulations catch and release area Great location to go hiking and fishing just to name a few. Dow the road from Poe Valley State Park and Lake with public beach boat ramp, stocked with trout and Poe Paddy State Parks, On the mid state trail, For more info and local links and hatch charts go to the Poe Haven website. www.poehaven.com

Great Tubing, Kayaking and Canoe. The huge patio and FIRE PIT have speakers to play your iPod,

Turkey, Huge White Tail Deer and Black Bear In the middle of the Bald eagle State Forrest 297,000 acers

House is 100 yards off of the famous Penns Creek, some say the best Trout water in PA

All native wild trout, Huge Brown's and Brookies, The famous Green Drake fly hatch!!!

Poe Haven : Poe Haven Cabin is 12 miles from Poe Valley State Park and 300 Yards from Poe Paddy State Park,

Poe Valley has a lake (Dam and lake finished construct open spring 2010) with a Brand New Swimming Beach. The lake is stocked and accessable by canoe, kayak, row boat, ect. See the park web site for all options.

Poe Haven is 100 yards off of the famous Penns Creek. Home of the Green Drake fly hatch (end of May to middle of June). Not to mention the Blue Wing Olives, Crane Flys, Sulfer's, Caddis in Elk, Tan Black & Olive, Penns Creek has the biggest hatches. Actually sometimes this makes Penns challenging, but no other place in the State of Pa hold's the huge numbers of all native trout. Browns i n the 16 to 18 inch range are common and i have caught and seen a few over 20 with the largest at 26'. Yea thats right 26 inches, caught by myself (Green Drake Parachute Emerger) thing looked more like a salmon then a trout. Lot's of The Most beatitful Brookies i have ever seen, and up to 16 i

Re-Hab: The house is under a total re-hab. We have built a brand new kitchen and turned the old kitchen into an additional bed room, now there are 4, and the living room and sun room sleeper sofas, we raised the ceiling in the living room added a wood burning stove with a stone sourround. And a 54' hi-def flat screen TV. We added a computer / Work station with Internet access. Hard Wood floors have been installed throughout. All flower bed retaing walls have been rebuilt and a complete new landscape will be installed as soon as the weather breaks.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Every summer we have a guys weekend and book a house listed on vrbo. This is by far the best place we have ever stayed. You can really tell how much the owner loves this place.

Really secluded on a long dirt road deep in the woods away from everything. The pictures on here don't come close to describing how cool the outdoor space is. The firepit is gigantic and the patio furniture is awesome. Unlike most houses on here, the hot tub is huge and in perfect working order.

There is a TV in practically every room with satellite TV and a sound system that has speakers both inside and outside by the firepit. The kitchen is stocked and the outdoor kitchen is great. 2 full bathrooms with full tiled showers and an outdoor shower all in perfect working order.

Really a perfect weekend. Played poker, watched football, hungout by the firepit, bbq'd, went hiking... we really didn't want to leave.

Definitely coming back

  • 5 of 5
So first of all, let me start by saying that I looked at hundreds of properties on Homeaway for a getaway with a group of friends. This trip was going to be just the guys, and we were looking for a place that was remote and secluded, but still a decent property and house. We scratched off property after property because there was something about it that didn't quite meet what we were looking for.

So if you're looking for: a quiet and relaxing property + a nicely kept, updated, clean house + river and lake access for fishing or tubing, this is your place!

The pictures do NOT do the outdoor space justice. The fire pit is HUGE. The speakers play through the whole area. The landscape itself is great and the surrounding area is beautiful. We had room to set up various outdoor games here and there. The outdoor kitchen is awesome and I imagine even more useful for a group bigger than ours (9 people). We did use it all weekend, but you can probably feed twice our group with both kitchens going.

When he says the house is fully stocked, it really is. We could have gotten away without bringing half of what we brought. We left all the extras behind as it seems the people before us did to pay it forward (paper towels, coffee, that sort of stuff). The rooms themselves are all well furnished and have a great feel to them. Bathrooms are cool -- big stone showers.

Last thing I can think to review is how helpful Bill was from start to finish. He got back back to me right away about getting the paperwork going, he kept in touch as I emailed him questions, then when we were there he called to see that we got in okay and told us to call with any questions. We did the next day, and he told us all about how to access the creek and lake. I've rented before around the east coast without ever getting even an email from the owner. He said to me that this house is more than just a rental property to him, it's a place he loves being. You can tell.

So like I said before this was for a guys weekend. Honestly we weren't looking for something this nice, it was the remote area and lack of any close civilization that drew us here. It was a 4 hour ride (give or take) from south Jersey, and still worth it for a 3 day weekend. I think you know what I mean when I make this difference, but our plan is definitely to go back in the future and to bring the ladies and kids with us. It's the kind of place that's perfect for either type of trip.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Poe Haven for a weekend with 4 adults and 4 kids (aged 5-11). It was the PERFECT place for us. The setting is beautiful and provided plenty of opportunities for short hikes with the kids. In the evening, the adults enjoyed the enormous fire pit and a couple of bottles of wine while the kids had the hot tub to themselves. The house itself is immaculate and feels very new. The satellite TV was a big plus!

We found the owner very responsive to inquiries and easy to deal with. We're looking forward to going back in 2014!

Bad experience :(

  • 2 of 5
We had a good time because my family is just a really fun bunch but I just wanted to make a PSA so everyone else knows what they are getting.
-patio and kitchen was great
- sound system was good
- kayak and tubes were fun- just wish there was enough for us all to go together
- stairs are REALLY steep and no handrail
- very cramped and crowded inside
- NOT a child friendly (would not recommend for children age 1-7)

and most useful tip- DONT EXPECT YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT BACK. The guy kept ours because we supposedly used his personal towels, though they were in the closets like the others and not labeled in any way and we were not instructed not to use them. He said that the $100+ money was used to pay the cleaning people to wash the extra few towels. Go figure.

Owner's Response: Wow what a surprise, especially since i had a $500 security deposit and as soon as i was contacted from cleaners about the 28 towels that 7 people used, That's right her few extra towels is 28 (bath towles plus the hand and wash cloths) for 7 ppl and 3 were kids, and they were taken out of 2 owner LOCKED closets, I called her and told her to expect me to keep $100.00 of the security deposit that i had, I ended up keeping $40.00, I sent back check # 5647 in the amount of $460.00, i keep $40.00 for the cleaning service's additional hours, actually it took 5 extra hours waiting for the dryer to dry 28 towels i had them do the windows so i paid for waiting hours and only charged guest for one additional hour.
We supply 8-9 tubes and their are 2 sixteen foot - 3 man canoes / kayaks, all of our paper work says this and if you are going to need additional you should bring your own.

Steps Are code not sure what she means by steep, we did add a hand railing on the inside wall, house has handled groups up to 15 - 20 people and with 20 people it may seam tight i suppose but tight with 7 no way, it's 4 bedrooms and 2 bath rooms and an outdoor shower as well as 3 patios, I know we had a office weekend with 36 people and everyone was good, we rented the local B&B for the extra beds, but all eating and everything was at our house. With no problems and a bunch of 1 to 7 year old kids.
I went out of my way to get them in on a last minute request, had all paperwork and charges done in 2 days, sent the house check in sheet which says that 1 each bath, hand and wash cloth per person is left out for 10 people, so they had 3 sets extra already, our directions even say we do not provide beach towels for the beach or the jacuzzi you will need to bring them yourself. There was a big communication problem with my English and their Chinese so i wonder if they were able to read the directions at all?
We have been renting 2 vacation homes with home away 5 years now and she is the only deposit money we have ever held and i held $40.00, we rent to 20 people / groups a year times two properties. I can send you a list of over a hundred people who had no problems and received their deposit back and back in 2 - 3 days. Please just ask, i find our guest not only like the houses they love dealing with us we hear it all the time, we respond in minutes not hours.
Any questions i look forward to talking with you,.
Thanks for taking the time to read all this.
Best
Bill

If you love the outdoors, but all the amenities of home this is the retreat for you! Spotless and impeccably decorated this "cabin" is a really wonderful place to stay. Owner was great to work with in booking and payment. Had a wonderful time and plan to go there again.
