Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were going to a PSU graduation and needed some place within driving distance (about 80 minutes away). This spot was perfect. Our family spent many hours catching up on the large comfortable front deck. Plenty of seating. The hot tub in the back (private) was brand new. There are two stone outdoor fire places and the owner supplies the wood. The river was pretty high, only my daughter ventured out this time. Kayaks and life vests are supplied. Our host, Cindy, was warm and went out of her way to get us settled in. Even the neighbors were nice. There is no doubt we will be back, this time with fishing licenses and hiking boots.

Great Cabin on riverfront

  • 5 of 5

Great rustic cabin on Juniata river; very close to town of Bedford, which has some good restaurants and shops. Cabin had everything needed for a relaxing stay- kitchen was well equipped, beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of space ( both indoors and oudoors) to relax. Everyone loved the hot tub and outdoor fireplaces, and the kids had a blast using the kayaks and fishing on the river.

Cindy, the owner, was very responsive to any questions that we had, and the cabin was very clean.

We hope to return next year.

We hope to come back again

Above and Beyond Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I just can't say enough about this wonderful home. My family and I were amazed at how much Bedford had to offer, as well as this house. We spent 2 days of our vacation never leaving the property, between the hot tub, the kayaking, campfires at night, and the beautiful views, we were in heaven. Cindy was terrific too. We are counting on making this a yearly trip to reconnect with family members and just relax. Thank you so much for a terrific experience!

We had a lovely time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week along the Juniata. The house is located near downtown Bedford, which has some great restaurants, as well as Bedford Springs - the spa, the golf course, the restaurants, the trails - all wonderful! The kayaks at the house also helped us to better enjoy our stay! We highly recommend this property!
