This is a family cabin that we have escaped to over the last 10 years. We come here to get away from the distraction of modern life. The cabin is comfy and simple, no stainless steel kitchen appliances, no granite counter tops, no heated ceramic tile, no internet, no telephone, no wifi, no hassle, no frills, no bells, no whistles. Simply lots of peace and quiet and nature ~ relax, refresh yourself, renew your relationships.

Met our expectations

  • 4 of 5

The property came across as no frills and this was indeed the case, and I mean that mostly in a good way. It was great to be able to disconnect from the world. The downside of being disconnected was the nagging voice in my head saying, “What happens if there’s an emergency?” We had to drive about 8 miles to get any cell service. The cabin was comfortable and cozy. There was plenty of wood for the wood stove and for the fire pit outside, had we wanted to use that. 10-20 degrees outside at noon got kept us from doing a fire outside. The heat worked great. A couple minor issues included a shower curtain that really needs to be replaced. We couldn’t find a lighter anywhere to start a fire and also had to get kindling to get a fire started. Also, there are a limited number of pots and pans. When the owner says the stove is old, that is indeed the case! Some instructions on lighting the stove would have been helpful for my wife and I so that we could be fairly certain that we wouldn’t accidentally burn the cabin down! All of that being said, none of those issues kept us from being able to enjoy ourselves. We have used Home Away numerous times and have yet to be disappointed. 4 Seasons was the least expensive up to this point and the price matched up well with the simplicity and basics we were looking for.

Perfect spot to relax and unplug. The night sky is breathtaking out there and deck and balconies provide a great vantage point without leaving the property.

Property was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were planning on going away for our anniversary and this property was more than what we expected for the price we paid. It is outdated, not glamorous by all means but it was perfect because we are not glamorous people and that was just what we were looking for! Had a beautiful view out by the pond we got lots of beautiful pictures of. We used the fire pit which was very relaxing. We brought our 4-wheeler and rode through the trails in the woods behind the cabin which was a blast (There are lots of trails). The house had brochures of things to do stocked and we used the heck out of them! We have traveled from Austin to Bradford and then all the way to Wellsboro which were all within an hour and a half from the cabin or less. we did lots of sightseeing In multiple counties, stargazing in galeton and even rode horseback with summit trail rides in coudersport. Our favorite restaurant/bar we went to was pine creek inn. The staff there really made you feel at home, we ended up having drinks and wings there every night!! that restaurant is highly recommended!! All-In-all had a great experience with the handsome cabin and town. We will be back for sure!

Very Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

I've stayed at VRBO locations across the country and have always been satisfied. This is the first time I was disappointed. The property was lovely, inside the cabin was another story.

For starters the cabin was damp and musty to the point the linens felt wet. There was a peculiar smell throughout. There were carpenter and sugar ants on the counter tops in the kitchen. There were mouse traps throughout the kitchen. The propane tank warning lights were on. The ceiling fan didn't work. We were so uncomfortable in this cabin that we considered staying at a hotel rather than sleeping there.

I asked for a partial refund but the owner refused. All in all for what we paid I was very disappointed.

Owner's Response: Dear Anonymous, I am sorry your expectations were not met during your stay. There are clear instructions listed at the cabin in the case of any concerns. Things may have gone differently if I would have known about your concerns during the stay as opposed to days later. The cabin is exactly as described, as many guests have mentioned. Simple, quaint, and bring your own sheets and towels :)

Perfect!

We stayed here July 13-16th for a relaxing vacation and it was absolutely amazing! Everything was exactly how it was explained. It was just like a home away from home! We will definitely be staying here in the future again!
