Hemlock Haven

1 site · Lodging50 acres · Morrisdale, PA
Reconnect with nature at this unforgettable escape to an Adirondack shelter nestled in the heart of a dense hemlock and pine forest. Hemlock Haven is a secluded and serene refuge that embodies the essence of mountain living. The only sounds to be heard are those of Brown Run bubbling and burbling its way past and the gentle rustling of the surrounding trees. This rustic, yet elegant shelter blends seamlessly into the majestic surroundings of towering trees and sparkling waters. The soothing lull of the nearby babbling stream and the gentle rustling of the hemlocks overhead envelops you in an unmatched sense of tranquility. This Adirondack shelter is equipped to cater to your needs, with thoughtful details and inspired touches throughout, including a handmade Amish Adirondack chair and a beautiful stone fireplace that invites you to sink in and relax. The interior is designed in a classic Adirondack style, with rough-cut timber walls allowing you to enjoy the lean-to as used along the Appalachian Trail and in the Adirondack mountains. But Hemlock Haven's real calling is its vast natural surroundings. It's a paradise for hikers and nature lovers who yearn for adventure in the great outdoors. The nearby stream is fed from a small nearby lake that teems with bass, sunfish and perch, offering an excellent opportunity to cast your line and see what you can catch. The lush green forest offers a network of trails for hiking, with abundant wildlife at every turn. Hemlock Haven is a unique and magical space across a handmade foot bridge that provides the perfect balance of rugged wilderness and serene luxury. Come immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and experience the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
