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.

Gerard was a welcoming, kind and accommodating host, and the primitive cabin setup is awesome. Very private space surrounded by woods, fire pit, covered porch, picnic table, and outhouse. Had a lovely stay here!

Gerry and family were excellent hosts. It was so nice to be around farm animals again. It was extremely quiet and relaxing in the cabin. The wood stove kept us nice and cozy at night. I can’t say enough good things about this place.

We had a wonderful time! It is what it says it is...a cabin out in the woods of a pasture. The place is easy to find. Just like they says there is a walk to get to it. Rustic with amenities out towards the front. They supplied plenty of wood there were cots for the 4 of us. Great quiet place to relax

This is part of the view outside the cabin!

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!
