About Franklin Reber

My name is Franklin Reber. My wife Theresa and our children Derek and Brittany have spent all our lives enjoying the beauty and recreation of Penn's Creek. We purchased this property as a home away from home. I was a Construction contractor for 28 years. I hold a Bachelor of Science from Penn State University as well as a Masters in Education. I am currently employed as an Instructor at Pennsylvania College of Technology. My wife Theresa has been a licensed beautician for more than 30 years. My son and daughter are both Penn State Graduates as well. Our daughter is now teaching in Phoenix Arizona and working on a Masters degree at Arizona State. Our son works through Career Link to help youth from several school districts find future careers.

Franklin Reber purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Franklin Reber chose Pennsylvania

We have been looking for an affordable property on Penn's Creek for more than 20 years. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting along the creek and listening and watching both the wildlife and water. My son and I have fished Penn's Creek since we were both old enough to walk. My entire family canoed these same waters over that span as well as hiking to the tunnels.

What makes this cabin unique

We have worked hard to offer a clean safe rental. A place to relax and collect your thoughts or enjoy the outdoors. This cabin is not and will not be tolerated as a party house for immature individuals.

Penns Creek Rental

  • 5 of 5

Guys weekend enjoyed our time at this recently updated/renovated house. The modern upgrades and tile showers impressed our group. Large kitchen and living area on first floor along with large enclosed screen porch and patio with fire pit. Great location for hiking, biking, boating, and fly-fishing.

Small towns nearby, wineries, and other attractions such as Woodward and/or Penn's Caves. Penns' Creek in back yard. Penn State/State College is 45 minutes. Group would come back again and/or bring families.

We had a great visit

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazingly awesome stay! We were in the area to attend our daughter's college graduation. Access to the house was seamless and Frank was very helpful answering all of our questions. The property was clean, well equipped and the perfect accommodations for our multiple generation family. There was a very nice common area for dining and socializing. The covered outdoor area was also great as it gave us an opportunity to be outdoors even though it was raining. The bedrooms were a perfect fit for our group. We look forward to returning in two years for our youngest daughter's graduation.

Family friendly, updated, beautiful relaxing wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful relaxing waterfront updated cabin, wonderful for our family of many ages. Grandchildren fed the fish, collected the crayfish and explored the rocks on water's edge. Adults relaxed on screen porch or patio to take in the sun. At night enjoyed fire pit (wood supplied) and grilled burgers, roasted marshmallows. Updated clean kitchen and 2 full clean bathrooms, TV with full cable. Bedrooms clean, fresh, comfortable.

Living room furniture is well used, gas grill was unclean(just grilled in fire pit with foil).

This is worth return trip! Thanks Frank for sharing you cabin!

Great weekend along the Penns Creek

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house was furnished nicely, plenty of supplies. The outdoor patio and fireplace is where we spent most of our time with a nice view of the creek. Definitely would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend.

Great get away in central PA

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice. It was room and cozy for the time of year we were there. The pellet stove help make those cold night very comfortable. The three bedrooms provided plenty of beds and room for sleeping. If the weather had been warmer (It was really nice but it was Thanksgiving so it was a little chilly to have a campfire) the outdoor campfire pit and enclosed porch would have been really nice!
