Clearfield Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Bedroom 1, Bathroom 1, Sleeps 6

OLDE OWL'S NEST

The cabin is nestled in a small peaceful community of vacation cabins located in a mature growth forest along the scenic West Branch of the Susquehanna river. You must cross a circa 1873 covered bridge to get to the cabin. The cabin is just 20-30 feet from the river which affords many recreational activities such as tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or just sitting in a folding chair in the river enjoying the babbling water. There is a screened in porch riverside with a covered deck porch cabin side. Gas grill, fire pit, picnic table,lawn chairs are all available for your use. The cabin inside includes four rooms (about 1000 sq ft), namely a fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom, large front room with satellite TV,DVD, WiFi, home phone (814-277-6149)and fireplace, and large bedroom which sleeps up to 6 comfortably. The cabin is accented with rustic barn wood, has hardwood floors, and has been modernized for your enjoyment. Although the cabin has a modern feel you will be away from the rat race as cell phone coverage is limited.

We are a couple nearing retirement who enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Although many people feel that country life can be boring we truly enjoy it and know there are many from the city that want to escape to a simpler life even if just for a short time.

Karen Howard purchased this cabin in 2012

We have enjoyed living in the region of central Pennsylvania known as the PA Wilds for most of our lives and would like to share the beauty and serenity of the area with others. There is just nothing like a peaceful rustic cabin nestled in the forest next to a scenic river to give a person the sense that life can be enjoyed apart from the rat race.

The cabin is right next to a scenic river, it is in a mature hardwoods forest, area is very quiet and peaceful whether you sit by the flowing river or warming campfire, circa 1873 McGees Mills Covered Bridge must be crossed to get to cabin, screened in porch riverside is delightful,

A Mini-Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on a Monday for a mini-getaway while the kids were at summer camp. We wanted to be close by, but also have our own little spot removed. Stopped at Denny's Beer Barrel and Pub on the way in and had some burgers..very good! The covered bridge was so quaint a welcome and the tiny little drive to the group of cabins was so sweet! Felt like our own little cottage in the wood. I understand what you mean when you said before that you would have to appreciate the setting. I understand that you're going to have well water if you want a place not smack in the middle of civilization, and some well water has a sulfur smell..goes with the territory..you don't smell like that when you get out. If I wanted a Comfort Inn that's what I would have chosen. The cabin was more than adequate. There was Yahtzee and cards. We sat in the screen room and listened to the river. Had fires and watched movies. Made breakfast one morning. Very nice. I especially LOVED your tissue dispenser which I giggled at every time I was in the restroom. I took a picture for my friends at home. The couch is cozy and you don't want to get up once you're down! We stopped in Punxsy and visited Clarion. We enjoyed our little time away. The only things I could say were low points were the proximity to the road..the trucks would bring us back to reality when they went by, but otherwise the river babbled, birds chirped, fire crackled. And the bed was a little squeaky and rough. The lower mattress on the bunk bed was more comfy, I found. When we arrived there was a nest across from the doorway with baby birds and their momma never tired of feeding them. The second day she gave them a lesson in flapping their wings and one fly out and returned! The morning we were leaving they had flown the nest. Very neat to watch that take place. Got pictures of them of course. This cabin is a drive into the country and you may not want to leave when you get there, just settle in and get comfy..you'll enjoy it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your experience at the Olde Owl's Nest cabin. Most
everyone who has stayed there remarks about the peacefulness of the country setting. Being right next to the river with babbling sound can really calm one's nerves which are often frayed by civilization's hectic pace. US Route 219 is across the river at the top of the hill and there is truck traffic as you say but those trucks pass by quickly and the serenity returns instantly. We of course installed an expensive Culligan water treatment system to reduce the sulfur smell from the well water. The system includes a reverse osmosis filter that Culligan assures us gives us
drinking water that is as clean as city water from the small spigot to the left of the kitchen faucet.
Well by now you have probably returned to your normal routine, glad you were able to escape for a few days from that normal routine at the cabin. Again thanks for your review.

Rustic Masterpiece

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was one of the nicest stays we have ever had and just what we were looking for. The beauty and seclusion of the area and the tastefully finished cabin proved to be the makings for an enchanting long weekend. Our only complaint - we couldn't stay longer! Thank you for sharing this lovely spot.

It has the WOW factor

  • 4 of 5
My mother and her sisters and a cousin and myself rented the cabin for a girls weekend and the pictures didn't do it justice. As everyone started arriving they were blown away by how nice the property is and just like the pictures. We played board games and visited around the fire just got away from the world.

There is already talk of coming back next year.

Worth Every Penny

Karen & Jim:
Thanks for making our week long get away one of the most enjoyable vacations that we have ever had. The cabin is as advertized. From the time we crossed the covered bridge, we knew that we were going to love the area. When we opened the front door, we were not disappointed. The cabin was immaculately clean and was not lacking for any amenities. Being some 25 feet from the river made the outdoor setting very serene and tranquil. Your offer to call you at any time if we needed anything to make our stay more enjoyable was most generous. We enjoyed the many quaint communities that are within an hour drive. We were most impressed with Curwensville, Smicksburg and Punxsutawney. There are crafts and antiques galore. Our only complaint is that we had to leave this most picturesque and charming area too soon.
Thanks again, Jerry & Gladys

Owner's Response: We were sure glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the cabin! We certainly believe that the environment of the cabin is both special and unique. It has taken
well over hundred years to create the forest that surrounds the cabin. I don't know of any other places locally where the river is 25 feet from your door. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the surrounding communities. A couple from the United Kingdom spent a week in the cabin this spring and noticed like you did that the area is full of antiques. We do so much appreciate our renters. And although we don't always get a chance to meet them, we were lucky to have made your acquaintance and hope you will get a chance to return to the area someday.
Thanks so much for your kind review.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed yourselves at both of our properties. We've tried to create a special experience at both places, one with a fantastic lake view and this one being right next to a national scenic river in a mature hardwoods forest. Sorry that you didn't have any luck fishing, not sure what the secret is. Thanks so much for recommending the property to your friends and family. Look forward to your return.
Thanks again for your kind review.
