This land had been a summer camp owned by 8 families, each having their own cabin and outhouse.  We bought it in 2000 for use as a retreat space for people who need a get away of peace and quiet. It's close to many towns and restaurants and the turnpike, but surrounded by trees and a creek, it feels far away from anything demanding your attention. It's a place to relax and enjoy nature. We offer a beautiful and sacred place in the woods of Bucks County, PA. The rustic cabin includes as much privacy as you desire, with a full kitchen, small bathroom, two bedrooms, and a meditation loft. The property includes a labyrinth, prayer path, treehouse, multiple fire pits (firewood included), and a creek with a dock, bird blind, kayaks, paddle boards and a rowboat. We are also offering discounts for stays longer than 3 days. If you'd like to take advantage of one of these, 15% off for a 4-6 days stay or 20% off for a stay longer than 6 days, please contact us, BEFORE BOOKING, and we can send you a code.

Adored this place!!
This place was amazing, it exceeded my expectations. The cabin was beautiful and bigger than I expected and the nature surrounding the cabin was magical and presented a calm and peaceful energy. I enjoyed the place so much, that I was very disappointed when it came time to check out. This retreat provided me with a much needed getaway from the hassles of my daily 9-5 city life. I hope to return again soon for longer than 2 nights as there was so much to explore and it was a great environment for meditation and relaxation. This place allowed me to get in touch with my spiritual side and helped me do some serious reflecting that I needed. The indoor fireplace was beautiful and there was also a fire pit outside as well surrounded by a labyrinth. I am grateful for the time and effort that the hosts put into making this place perfect for any guest that comes. Their dogs were also great companions and guides during my weekend there. I felt truly welcome and did not feel like I was being watched by anyone. I truly felt secluded here. There was not one negative or even neutral thing to say about this place. It was overwhelmingly amazing. Everyone needs to experience this place and I strongly recommend it to anyone desiring a true secluded getaway from society.

Perfect place for a retreat
This was the perfect place to enjoy a solo retreat. The cabin is warm and has all amenities needed, and John made sure to have a fire made in the fireplace, which I kept going all day and night. The land is beautiful and thoughtfully taken care of. I enjoyed a nature walk full of sweet surprises, a rowboat to enjoy gliding down the creek and stand-up paddle boats, a treehouse, and sweet goats and chickens. The labyrinth just outside the cabin is beautiful and a perfect way to meditate. John and Sandy were such warm hosts, very communicative and accommodating. And I loved getting to know their sweet dogs Khyber and Chico. I can’t wait to come back again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandy and John's cabin! It's obvious that they have poured a tremendous amount of love into the property over the years. From a mindful walk through the labyrinth to a gentle paddle up the creek, we had a relaxing and rejuvenating time and would definitely return.

Fernrock Retreat was such a pleasure to stay at! There is so much to offer at such a peaceful and quiet little corner of the world. There are plenty of activities as well as a quiet and comfortable cabin to stay in that has everything you could possibly need. I would 100% stay here again!

Glamping surrounded by nature.
This place was really amazing. I am from the west coast and was so happy to visit an area with so much greenery. Upon arrival we were greeted by our host and her two cute dogs. She let us know everything important and let us explore the area. The cabin was so spacious and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. The area was so beautiful from the creek, to the trails, to the goats and chickens :)). I will definitely be coming back to take advantage of the rest of the property such as having picnics in the tree house, going on longer row boat rides and, laying on the grass and enjoying the scenery.

Perfect Retreat with goats!!!!
This retreat was exactly what my husband and I needed to get away from the city life and spend quality time together without all the worlds distractions. Sandy & John are great hosts. During the meet & greet upon arrival they make you feel very welcome and give you all the space needed to feel like you're the only ones on the property. Their two lovely dogs are super friendly and smart. There's a beautiful walking trail with all kinds of things to look at and the dogs made sure we didn't feel lost, leading us the whole way. The property is very clean, had everything we could every think of that we needed except your own food which we knew to bring, but there's also local grocery stores minutes away from the retreat. The cabin sleeps a family easily providing two separate bedrooms and a pull out sofa bed. Lots of activities to do, we look forward to going back in the near future. Thank you Sandy & John for providing us this awesome mini vacation. We could have stayed for weeks!!!

We loved the cabin, especially the screened in porch. We started and ended every day sitting out there talking, reading, snacking and laughing while listening to the birds and frogs. Sandy and John opened their whole property to us, and we loved walking through with woods with their adorable dog Khyber as our escort. The kitchen had more than I expected, and the large frig with freezer was a big plus! We didn't have to keep anything in the cooler. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and feel rejuvenated!

Inspiring Retreat!
What an amazing place! We knew that we were going to have a fun weekend but John and Sandy’s land ended up being so much more. My wife, two daughters (6 and 9) and I loved the stream where we kayaked, paddle boarded and floated on our pool rafts for hours. There’s a trail through the woods with guided reflection/prayer areas. Our daughters especially loved the treehouse, fairy garden, goats and chickens and their two dogs. At night the fire ring in the middle of the labyrinth was perfect for s’mores. The cabin was clean and had just enough supplies to make our stay wonderful! We would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and escape for a while. Thank you John and Sandy for such an inspiring vacation. -the Corbys

Perfect, peaceful retreat space
Wonderful! Sandy and John radiate kindness and generosity. They're present and available, but give you all the space and privacy you need. The 8 acres are a perfect blend of maintained paths and natural forest and the creek is calm and surprisingly remote feeling once on it. The cabin itself is the cleanest I've seen and has everything you need for a restful visit.

My family and I absolutely loved it here. It was our first overnight trip after the pandemic started, and it was a great choice. Lush, green scenery, and a nice, off-the-grid vibe. We had great conversations at the boat dock and in the prayer maze, and good reflection time on the screened-in porch. Khyber was incredibly friendly and kept us on the path when we went hiking. What a treat it was to stay here. I'd absolutely love to come back again! Oh, I forgot to write up my haiku for the creative impressions book. Here you go... Unplug and unwind What a treat in this fast world My soul is at peace Thank you.

Great cabin and place to get away!
What a fantastic retreat this was! My 10 year old and I had the best time here. On the property there is a lot to explore and keep you entertained. Visiting and exploring around the stream filled most afternoons. Because it flowed slowly, kayaking on it was a breeze for us beginners. Sandy and John are two wonderful souls, and their dog, Khyber, was a welcome companion during our stay. He willingly led us around the property and down different hiking trails, and won't be forgotten anytime soon. I highly recommend this location, and my daughter and I are already discussing a return trip.

Wonderful weekend stay with kids!
My husband and I came with her two children and had a wonderful time! It was an unusually wet and chilly Memorial Day Weekend, but that didn't stop us from having fun. The cozy fireplace kept us warm and we had fun bonding, reading, and playing games inside listening to the rain come down on the gorgeous skylights. The cabin is very clean and attractive inside. When the rain let up, the girls enjoyed feeding the goats and chickens, climbing up to the treehouse, and playing with Khyber the dog (I seriously have never met such a gentle natured dog). Sandy and John were so warm and welcoming. It's a nice place to come with kids; there was plenty to do within driving distance, since it was raining and we needed to find indoor activities. The labyrinth is gorgeous, and you can tell that the place is full of spirit and love.

Vivacious and Serene
A much needed weekend out turned into something so special. This was our first time away since our son was born and it couldn't have been better. Everything on the property is done with purpose and love. We felt welcomed , peaceful and adventurous for our too short stay. We walked in the woods too many times to count, walked the labraninth, boated and kayaked on the stream, played in the treehouse, sat at the fire, posed for the trail camera, foraged for (and cooked with) ramps, visited the chickens and goats, relaxed in the meditation loft, and played in the yard. That was only Saturday and Khyber joined as many activities as possible. We are looking forward to a return trip sooner than later.

A peaceful and cozy stay
Fern Rock is truly one of the most peaceful places I've ever stayed. The hosts, Sandy and John, are kind, accommodating, and completely unintrusive. The cabins are well-equipped and cozy, and the woods on the property are gorgeous and serene. I took about a 15-minute drive to a local reservoir for a gorgeous longer day hike, but would have been just as happy to spend my time reading on the screened-in porch, walking the local trails, and spending time with their sweet dog Khyber. I hope to return!

A very special place.
From the moment we drove up I knew I was going to love it. The Cabin is a work of craftsmanship accented with beautiful pictures and loved the Labyrinth books couldn't put them down. I will be buying them so i can continue the readings . The property is so big and peaceful from the creek to the trial and the Labyrinth is out of a book. Was perfect for the peace and relaxation I was looking for but really was even more than i could have expected. The Hosts were very accommodating and responded within minutes . I immediately told a friend and she immediately booked for next Month and invited me to come ! I said , Absolutely!!

Our favorite escape
This was our second stay at Fern Rock, and we can’t say enough good things about Sandy and John or their property. The cabin is comfortable and and stocked with necessities, making packing simple. We especially love the meditation loft and the views and natural light from all of the windows. From the wooded trail to the treehouse, to the creek and dock, and the multiple fire pits, every bit of the property thoughtfully promotes serenity and connection with nature. We highly recommend for some time to unplug, unwind, and re-connect with your family and yourself!

We had a special time at the "Forested Cabin Retreat"! We enjoyed exploring the creek, the tree house, and the trail. Our 9-year old loved the chickens, goats, and of course, Khyber. Praying as we walked the labyrinth was especially meaningful. Sandy and John made us feel right at home.

Wonderful cabin and property. Warm and welcoming hosts. We walked around the trails on the property, used the canoes and played with the friendly dog, and enjoyed it all. Spending a bit of time here calmed us down a bit after a crazy election week. Hope we can visit again some day!

Peaceful space to connect with Gaia
Our stay at Fern Rock was exactly what we needed to reconnect with mother nature. Plenty of space to forest bath and be at peace while walking along the prayer walk. Sandy and John were extremely helpful and have created such a beautiful energy around their home. We will visit again, without a doubt! Oh, and just enough modern comforts to feel remote but still relaxed with an infant in tow!
