Learn more about this land: This wooded area is 5 miles away from the Ohiopyle State Park whitewater launch area and GAP bike trail. We are less than 9 miles from Frank Lloyd Wright's Classic Fallingwater and about 8 miles from Kentuck Knob one of the last resident homes he designed (both are open for tours). Fort Necessity National Battlefield is 5 miles away. There are numerous native trout streams in the area. Youghiogheny Reservoir is 7 miles away for fishing, boat rentals, and water-sports. The Fern House is the primary camp cabin on the property in 2024. Although if someone would want to park a "self contained" camper or small RV on the property we would permit the unit to occupy the area in front of the driveway just pass the entrance gate. It is not within the ferns and is next to the road. There is an electrical outlet available at this small RV or van camper site. We are "nice pet" friendly. We have a mountain spring (when the spring is running) up the trail road (450 feet away). The ferns will normally be in full glory by the end of May to the beginning of October and are amazing, covering the forest floor. Deer, bear, wild turkey, fox, chipmunks, squirrels and many woodland birds abound the property especially owls. A picnic table, fire ring and firewood is available on the property. Free WiFi on the property as long as the plant life is not too thick! There is a mile hiking loop right on the property and many challenging trails in the area, including the starting point for the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail.

The Fern House
Virgil's directions were concise and the cabin is situated between the two most charming little towns. Be sure to stop at Fuel for coffee and Bittersweet for lunch! The cabin itself was an absolute dream and I had trouble leaving it. We felt spoiled with extra cozy bedding, gifted snacks, a bonfire, dvd's for the rainy day and a walking trail on site. I would happily return each Spring before tourism season to enjoy the unfurling of ferns and baby deer. Highly recommend this stay.

Amazing stay at The Fern House
The Fern House was absolutely beautiful and equipped with everything needed to enjoy a relaxing trip away surrounded by nature. The hosts were attentive and thoughtful as they provided dog treats and a basket of snacks for my stay. The loft area is spacious and the house is very clean and tidy as well. I throughly enjoyed my stay and would love to visit again in the future.

The Fern House
Fern House is beautifully designed to bring the woods and light into every space. The sleeping loft feels like you are in a treehouse with 360 views. You do have to be comfortable climbing a ladder to access it. The hosts have thought of every detail in order to make you feel comfortable. I can’t recommend it too highly.
