Alan Stokes purchased this cabin in 2011

2 acres of spacious, flat land surrounded by beautiful beech, pine and walnut trees that provides ample shading on those hot, summer days; not to mention a fantastic fishing stream runs through the back of the property. The wildlife is amazing to see which includes Elk, deer, bear, turkey and much more.

Wildlife viewing right on the property, including Elk and Deer. Step out of the back door and it's a very, short walk to Hicks Run for some fantastic Trout fishing

2 families (mine & my brother's) stayed at Camp Critter & had an amazing time. The cabin was just as the pictures depicted. We loved the rustic look, the large front porch & especially the fireplace in the cabin. We had planned on cooking mountain pies in the outdoor fire pit, but we enjoyed the fireplace so much that we cooked them inside. The cabin was clean & well stocked. Would definitely look into staying here again. Were also blessed to see elk up close on the 2nd day, which is why we came here in the first place.

Great location for elk viewing

This is a fabulous location, off the beaten path adjacent to state forest lands. The cabin itself was nice and appropriate for the location, we were not expecting a five star hotel but were pleasantly surprised to find dish TV, a fully stocked kitchen and fireplace. The deck is awesome. I am sure the stream is a great place to be in warmer weather. The owners were very easy to work with as this was a last minute getaway for us. Would definately return.

What a great time we had! There were Deer in the yard on our arrival at 4:30 in the afternoon and they spent most of the days and nights during our stay. Elk came in an hour after our arrival. We had a black bear cub ramble thru the yard on saturday. A terrific place to enjoy wildlife and a very comfortable cabin to enjoy an evening by the fireplace with friends.

Our thanks to Alan and Yvonne

This was a great place to stay. It was close to elk viewing areas and state parks. We had deer in the yard every morning and evening. Day 2 of our stay we had 3 beautiful bulk elk that wondered thru the yard, and twice daily after that. The amenities were as stated in the listing, clean and well maintained. Loved the fireplace. Had a fire every night. Made it very cozy and comfortable. The front porch was awesome. Would love to go back and stay again. We have already told our friends what a wonderful stay we had. It was absolutely relaxing.

Elk viewing areas throughout Benezette and close to cabin. Elk bugle season begins in September and continues well into the month of October; truly fascinating to view and hear them 'bugling' in the wild and within close range...a must see event!! Visitors from all over come to witness this amazing show.
