Grand Valley Lodge Rental Photos and Description

16 Bedroom, 9 Bathroom, Sleeps up to 35+ - 2 hr driving fr.Pittsburgh Clevelan

A delightful and authentic visit to the Pennsylvania Wilds! The secluded large rustic lodge consists of two side by side wings (buildings) connected by a deck walkway. Each wing has three levels. There are 28 rooms in all, each having lovely views of the surrounding forest. Multiple living room areas accommodate comfortable reading and relaxation spaces as well as venues for crafts, cards, board games and group exchanges. Libraries invite browsing. Expansive decks at the second level of each wing encourage similar activities outside.

There is a fully-equipped large kitchen with an adjacent large dining area; a kitchenette is also available for additional food preparation. Many cooks can comfortably work together without concern for “spoiling the broth.” (Guests are, of course, responsible for their own food. Recommendations for catering services and local restaurants will be available. (It should be noted, however, that restaurants and grocery stores are at least nine miles away.)

Although the lodge is rustic it is well-appointed with comfort features such as hot water baseboard heat fueled by natural gas from wells on the property. Some floors are oak hardwood; others are carpeted. Creative touches introduced by the owner-builder throughout the buildings surprise and delight guests.

A large barn (unheated) is available for indoor activities such as active game playing, dancing, dramatic performances, presentations to groups, yoga, tai chi, or whatever activity requires a large open space. The barn, like the lodge, has large decks for enjoying the woodland landscape.

There is a pond on the property and trails for walking through the 150 acres of fields and forests. Guests particularly enjoy the photographic opportunities and nature study. Outdoor activities are available including campfires and games such as croquet and volleyball.

The setting is suitable for gatherings, parties, retreats, reunions, weddings, workshops, receptions, and all kinds of music and social events. There is plenty of parking space for large events.

International guests are welcome. Rides from and to Erie or Franklin, PA airports can be arranged.

Weekend With Friends

  • 5 of 5
Our group was here for the 5th time. We absolutely adore this place whether it is a weekend with just adults or children included. We've been here during different seasons. As far as activities there is much to take advantage of such as fishing in the pond, volleyball, horseshoes, ping pong or enjoying an outdoor fire. We always enjoy walking the trails on the property with hopes of seeing the bulls (fenced). We did have someone ride their bicycle from Titusville to Oil City and ride the train back. We always have a great time! Always looking forward to the next time.

Wonderful family weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Woodland Lodge was a wonderful setting for our family weekend. Finding a place large enough to comfortably accommodate 26 people (4 generations ages 2 to 84) was not easy, so we felt especially blessed to find this lovely place. It was all we hoped and more. We were very impressed how clean, organized, and well stocked everything was! Margaret was so helpful and answered our multiple questions during the planning stages and Amy the property manager was incredibly helpful. Our heartfelt thanks to both. Our family had lots of togetherness, but plenty of space.

A Gem of a Spot!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a family reunion - 15 adults (one of them in her nineties) and four babies under the age of two. We usually spend our reunions camping but with all the babies this year, that was going to be difficult. We were so happy we found this house! It was perfect! It's got a smattering of beds and baths so all the families had their own space. Everything was taken care of - linens, towels, soap, toilet paper, even a large coffee maker! This made for a truly relaxing experience. The property is extremely wooded and private, which helped us "feel" like we were camping but with all the convenience of a house nearby. We loved the quirkiness of the two houses joined by a large deck and all the old books throughout the place. We very much enjoyed the fire pit, volleyball courts, and walking paths. And the barn - wow! What a terrific place for a party, which is exactly what we held, complete with square dancing! Thanks so much to Margaret for being a pleasure to work with - timely, responsive, and professional. The only drawback is that it may be a bit of a drive to area attractions (this wasn't a problem for us since we actually didn't leave the site for our entire two-day stay and we still had plenty to do).

Reunion Gem!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to the woodland lodge with a large group of families, small children and couples. It's becoming an annual reunion for college friends! Plenty of room for everyone. Great assortment of rooms and types. Space for outdoor games, a campfire and huge barn. Last year the weather turned and the barn was a great way to escape the rain and still be able to enjoy everyone's company. Highly recommended lodge for large group. Margaret was very helpful and we look forward to another visit next year!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
The website photos and description are completely accurate. We found the lodge to be clean and perfectly acceptable for our families needs. The private spaces, (bedrooms), and bathrooms were clean and plentiful. We enjoyed traffic free and noise free family vacation. Kayaking, biking, hiking, book stores, yard sales, etc. are all available. The barn was perfect for sharing the talents of our family. We will recommend your lodge to anyone looking house a large group with ease.
