Penfield Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3BR 1 bath, sleeps 6-9, Mountain Cabin, near I-80, Clearfield, PA Wilds, USA

Cedarwood Lodge is a mountain cabin on eight forested acres surrounded by the Moshannon State Forest with access to thousands of acres for exploring nature directly from the grounds. Only 4 miles off PA I-80, Exit 111, the cabin provides easy access to Parker Dam and S.B. Elliot state parks and the nearby Elk Herd and Elk Scenic Drive.

The Lodge is completely equipped including linens, all kitchen needs, microwave, gas cook stove and gas grill, coffee maker, toaster, TV/VCR/DVD (no TV reception), phone, wood burning stove/fireplace, and full bath with tub and shower.

Homemade bread, and sweet rolls or muffins are provided for your first morning's breakfast. Coffee and tea provided.

Deer, turkey, foxes, and an occasional bear can be observed making their way past the Lodge. Enjoy dark skies with easy access to the 'middle of nowhere' - just a 15 minute drive (12 miles) to Clearfield or DuBois.

It is easily accessible from the main highway, yet provides privacy and a feeling of seclusion. The Lodge is a great place for family get-togethers, a romantic get-away for two, or a gathering of friends.

Some comments from our guests:

'...But the best things were the walks along the logging roads, beaver ponds, flowers starting to bloom, and the peace and tranquility of the backwoods.' Ralph, Nancy, Tucker, Keisee and Marlie, from Novelty, Ohio

'Our drive was 5.5 hours, but it was worth it. We are sad to leave this hideaway to return to the stress of the city.' Amy and Pete from New York City

'We wanted to renew our friendships, enjoy nature, and escape the hustle and bustle of life. We wanted to laugh and talk late into the night. Here at Cedarwood, it all happened.' Barb, Ruth, and Diane from Evans City, PA

'We enjoyed three of the best days of our lives here! This is an absolutely wonderful place.' Chuck and Lori - newlyweds

Although there is not onsite swimming, the cabin is located 2 miles from two state parks which have swimming, boating, nature center, hiking trails of all degrees of length and difficulty. There are beaver dams within walking distance of the cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the Journal: "Our children were part of the Region 22 Championship for the World Tang Soo Do Association. We're from the Pittsburgh Area and with 3 kids our goal was to find a more private place to stay instead of a hotel. This place was perfect. We loved our stay! The breads provided were delicious! The kids loved the upstairs room - it was like a tree house! We would definitely love to come back sometime - maybe kid-free - lol. Thank your for such great hospitality. God bless you and yours."

Owner's Response: You are most welcome, Sanjay. I learned from my trip to the UK that "homely" means something somewhat different there than it does here....I believe the closest American English definition would be "homey". Thank you for the five-star rating!

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your review - it is especially heartwarming to hear that the children loved the cabin. When our children were young we spent many weekends and holidays with them at the cabin, so your comments bring back very fond memories of those times. "Let's go to the cabin, build a fire and look out the window!" was a familiar refrain from by-gone days. Thank you for choosing Cedarwood Lodge for your getaway. We would love to have you come back when you have more time to fulfill your wish for a "few additional days to stay longer". Peggy

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my husband with a weekend getaway before he had knee surgery, so we booked at the very last minute with no problems and I have to say that this cabin very much exceeded our expectations! Not just the cabin, the entire experience from talking to Peggy (who is SO helpful and nice) to the drive up from Pittsburgh to pulling into the the beautiful wooded lane that goes to the property.

When we opened the door we were blown away. The pictures here don't do it justice! You can tell the owners care about the place, that its not just a 'rental property' to them. The entire cabin is quaint & very comfortable. Very much a rustic lodge, yet filled with amenities!

Our first night we relaxed and played some of the games we brought with us & some that are there already! The appliances were just ... I loved the stove! It was so much fun to cook on!

It rained the first morning there and nothing can come close to describing how peaceful it was sitting on the screened in porch & drinking coffee while listening to the rain hit the leaves. My husband was just enthralled & when he saw a doe run across the lane, his whole weekend was made and that was before we went to see the Elk!!

Helpful tip: if you're going to view the elk , the best time we found was to be there after 5:30pm (in summer)! We saw so many close up it was AWESOME!!!

This was truly an exciting weekend. We visited the dam, which was really nice, but couldn't enjoy due to the rain. It worked out though, we just went in search of elk! We absolutely will be booking again and have already recommended it to our family & friends!

Thank you Peggy! We look forward to talking to you again!!

Owner's Response: Hi, Heather - I received notice of your review just two days after we left for a two-week trip for our daughter's wedding in Yellowstone, so I want to apologize for the delay in responding! Needless to say, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. And we are very appreciative of your taking time to provide details of your experience and tips for summer elk-viewing for future guests. I'm so glad we had availability when you called and hope the R&R that nature and the cabin provided helped bolster both you and your husband in preparation for his surgery. I trust recuperation is going well and look forward to hearing from you when you are ready to come back to the PA Wilds again! Thanks so much for coming. Peggy

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Peggy responds very quickly! She is very informative and precise with all the information regarding the cabin. A group of friends and I stayed at the cabin for a weekend and it was a great experience. The cabin felt like home. It was very clean and cozy! I definitely plan on making another trip out there during the summer!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you and your friends enjoyed your stay at Cedarwood Lodge. We have many repeat visitors and would be happy to have you return for a warm weather visit! There are many things to see and do in the spring, summer and fall that just aren't as accessible in the winter. Thank you for submitting a review and for taking the time to share your experience at our cabin in the PA Wilds!
