A Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was absolutely beautiful. Our trip was great. It was a little far for driving back and forth to the Elk Preserve, but it was worth it. Allen greeted us and was very informative. Thank you for the excellent directions to the Elk preserve because cell reception is non existent. We wish we could have spent more time at the cabin, but with driving it was not in the cards this trip. We hope the next time we will be able too.

Great spot for family gathering

  • 5 of 5
I recently gathered with eight family members at the Fork Ridge lodge and agree with the positive reviews previously posted. Leading up to our arrival, the lodge’s owner, his office staff and the lodge custodian were very helpful answering my questions so that we could arrive prepared. While we were there, although the weather was good and we were often out taking advantage of the area’s attractions, it would not have bothered me if it rained a day or two since the lodge interior is so nice that it would be enjoyable just to remain inside, playing cards, etc.. I would definitely consider staying at the lodge in the future.

Great get away place in Elk Country

  • 5 of 5
We were met by the ranch manager, Alan. He gave us a complete tour of the house and all necessary information. The house was well stocked with towels, bedding and all the items you would need to make yourself comfortable. Leave the electronics except your cell phone at home. Cell phone coverage was fine but as my electronic crazed 14 yr. old grandson discovered, no WIFI.
Alan offered us a tour of the game preserve on the 4 wheeler. we went there the about 9Am for a 2 hour tour. Seeing the wild boars up close was my grandson's favorite part of our 2 day stay! Thank you for the memories made for all of us on that tour including my 88 year old Mom! She is still talking about the tour.
Make sure you bring in any food you may need. The nearest grocery store is about 20 minutes or more away. One night we enjoyed the BBQ at Gio's.
This worked well as a base to go exploring in Elk Country. Don't miss the movie at the Elk Visitor's Center in Benezette. While driving on the back roads we came across a bull elk grazing in someone's yard as well as other places with the cow elks and their babies.
The photos give a great look at the place. There isn't a lot of privacy on the first floor. The bunk room is right out in the open part of that floor. It shares the bath with a stall shower with the bedroom on that floor. There is a door on the bedroom. The stairs are steep going up to the living level from the first level. The third level has a balcony open above the living area. The only issue I found with the third floor living area was there was no place to hang clothes.
There is a wonderful porch off the living level. Great to relax there. Small grill on the deck. I heard from Alan that he is working on an outdoor picnic area.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful house with us. We will mention this place with our other friends who may be looking for places to visit in PA.

perfect birthday

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend at Fork Ridge- my wife's birthday. She must have told me a dozen times that this was the PERFECT birthday gateway. The wildlife was amazing- from a bobcat, dear, and turkey at the lodge to wild boar, rams, trophy buck and turkey on the ranch. And then you add in the bugleing bull elk on window hill and then you have THE PERFECT BIRTHDAY. Thanks John - you were great
