Rustic area of 25 acres of pastures and forest bordering a hundred of acres of railroad and municipal forest. Great for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking. 1.5 miles from Deer Lakes park which has fishing, hiking, mountain biking and a great playground. The Allegheny river, judged to be one of the cleanest in the country, is just 6 miles away.  Harrison Hills park offers great hiking along the river and an occasional river otter. The Rachel Carson Trail and Baker trail are just a few miles away. 

It is a secluded log cabin in the woods on top of a hill overlooking a pasture. It is a very primitive cabin with a fireplace, brick floor, large porch, fabric interior and no chinking in the logs.  We provide a bunk bed and cots and 2 picnic tables.. There is a large grassy area in front of the cabin for tents.  There is no vehicle access, no electricity and no water at the cabin, but LOTS of downed wood for fires. There are horses, goats, chickens, ducks and a pig that roam the pastures. The cabin is about 300 yards from the parking area up a fairly steep hill, but the location is worth the walk!   If you're stopping with an RV or trailer we have ample parking near the road and have overnight accommodations for horses Great place for a stopover.

A really nice retreat near Pittsburgh. The horses are quite kind and the setup is rustic enough to feel like you are out in the woods.

Secluded cabin with horse is exactly what you get! It was absolutely amazing.. the cabin was the perfect size to get cozy in, the horses were so fun and loving, everything was truly awesome about Jerry’s place. We took the 5 hour horseback ride, definitely did not disappoint!!!

I took my daughter here for her 10 year old birthday and we had a blast! We purchased the hour long trail ride and it was the best horse trail ride I have been on. Gerard took the time to teach my daughter about the horse, letting her help clean the horses hooves, brush, and get use to the horse in the arena. After the ride, we had a great camping experience and woke up to horses around our cabin. The horses are sweet and we spent the morning feeding them carrots and apples, petting them, and walking in the pasture with them. We took a fun hike to the old timey gas station and spent the rest of our morning with the goats, Petunia the pig, the rabbits and Guinea pigs, the dogs, and the rope swing. If you love animals, nature, and adventure this is the spot to be!

We had so much fun camping on Gerard's land! And probably drastically improved our cardiovascular systems. My children LOVED his animals, we were led to our camp by Koda the Husky and greeted by a pot belly pig, and three horses (among many others!).

Such a wonderful and peaceful place to unwind. The camp truly is secluded even though it’s a short walk through the pasture to get to. It rained during our stay and the cabin was buttoned up that even though it naturally got damp which can’t be avoided it stayed dry, no leaks. The covered porch area had a little table that made it perfect to wait out the rain, the tree coverage also helped it stay a bit dryer like a natural canopy. Gerard was very helpful and quick to respond with any of our questions or concerns. We did the horseback riding and even for beginners with little to no experience we had a great time. The horses were gentle and you could tell were well loved. Even for a night this will be at the top of our list for a get away and be able to recharge.

One of the beat hosts out there. His hospitality is beyond excellent. He was friendly and has well behaved animals that are also very friendly so being around on the farm was a great time very relaxing. The cabin was rustic and very nice with every amenity that you could need especially with a wood stove. It thunderstormed night 2 and we were dry, cozy in the bunks with the wood stove burning away. Just don't forget a citronella candle for your nights stay and if you're over 6 foot you will have to watch your head for sure! My 4 year old was excited beyond belief to ride one of the horses he was a natural and Gerard was an knowledgeable trainer and has alot of skills at the reigns. Allowed my son to really learn something useful that will last a life time. Thank you for being our host!
