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.

My family and I had a memorable and relaxing 3 day stay at Gerard's secluded rustic log cabin. Gerard is a warm and attentive host who ensured we had everything we needed. He loaned us sleeping bags and coats when the weather turned colder than we expected.

Sitting on the top of a hill surrounded by woods and a small working farm, this rustic log cabin has a wood stove, a wood bunk bed with no bedding and folding camp cots. The covered foyer has a little wood table and chairs, and there’s a picnic table and fire ring next to the cabin beneath the stars.

There’s no electricity or potable water at the cabin so make sure you bring flashlights and sufficient drinking water. (You can fill up your water jugs in the basement of the main house). We brought our dogs and found several ticks on them afterwards so if you bring your dogs, check them and yourself carefully after your trip.

There’s an outhouse with TP near the cabin but you will need to walk down the hill to access the shower and potable water in the basement of the main house. But taking a hot, soothing rain shower is well worth the effort!

The highlight of our trip was interacting with all the animals, especially the horses and goats. Gerard has significant knowledge and experience riding, showing, and caring for horses and other animals. The farm has several horses of various breeds, and one is a gorgeous and gentle Shire. All the horses and animals are friendly and adorable.

My daughter and I went on a two-hour horseback ride, and Gerard was patient and kind when my daughter was having some trouble controlling her horse. The horseback riding was a rare treat and made the trip all the more unforgettable! I had a hard time leaving Gerard’s farm, and will definitely be back!

Very nice little spot, definitely recommended. Gerard was very welcoming and then once he should me the spot and gave me firewood he left me alone!! The horses were a nice addition to the camping. In the morning a flock of about 12 turkeys came through my camp site and it was really a peaceful space. I recommended bringing a cart with large wheels to get all your camping gear to the top of the hill!

We had such a wonderful time at the secluded cabin! The horses were so friendly and amazing. They roam around and occasionally come up to the cabin area. It’s magical. There are a bunch of other animals on the farm too. Gerard was a wonderful host and taught us how to ride horses for the first time! Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for some quality time with nature.

I recently took a road trip with my 5 year old son. Our first stop was Gerard's "secluded cabin with horses". It was the perfect start to our week long excursion. Gerard was welcoming and a pleasure to meet. The site was perfect and exactly what we wanted. Private and isolated. Yet a stone throw from conveniences. - The rain shower head was relaxing and a delight. :0)

My son loved interacting with the farm animals. He also has not stopped talking about riding one of the horses. It was his first time riding a horse and I could not have asked for a better experience. I was hesitant when I originally planned our trip and thought my son might not feel comfortable around a horse. Gerard was wonderful and far exceeded my expectations.

I very much look forward to booking/visiting Gerard's "secluded cabin with horses" again.

The cabin was amazing! My son and I enjoyed every minute of our stay! Being rite in with the horses, goats, chickens, and pig made the experience one of a kind! Just bring plenty of carrots and apples!! I would definitely recommend staying with Gerard on his beautiful property!
