Cabin has a loft for sleeping. Floor of cabin is concrete and often wet in winter. Heat rises from wood stove through steep ladder opening so loft stays warmer and dry. No electricity or running water. There are 60 acres for you to explore. There are three camp sites on the 60 acres but all are on the eastern half of the property, however you can't see any from one another. There is a pink trail to follow as a loop to Red Bank Creek and up through open forest to be completed by cabin.

Small firepit next to picnic table outside along a stream, which may be gushing or a trickle depending on weather and time of year.  Quite shaded for the most part and downstairs of cabin is cool on hottest day. 

Great for outdoors people who want to bicycle, hike, snow shoe, or kayak on Red Bank Rail Trail or Creek. It goes 50 miles til it meets the Allegheny River.  If you need a ride to shuttle let us know, we may be able to help. People who have stayed through another site seem to like it even though there is no running water or electricity. Quite Rustic. If you have a large outdoor group rent cabin and trailer and benefit from the various perks of both, like room for bikes downstairs of cabin and crockpot of stew after snow shoeing at trailer. However the wood stove in the cabin cooks up some good eggs, pancakes, and bacon. I have a cohost who helps greet you when I am not available and she sells fresh eggs if you'd like some.

'Rustic cabin' explains it well. Old and small structure that is cozy and clean for sleeping in the loft area. I'd like to hike on the nearby trails if I'm back that way.

We loved our stay here! It was the sweetest little place in the woods. The kids loved the creek and getting fresh water from the spring! I wish we had more time to spend, we will definitely be back!

Wonderful and gracious hosts! Upon arrival the bonfire wood are all nicely cut and stacked. Everything as described were provided. Only several minutes away from Interstate 80. Ask Co-Host Judy about her Duck eggs, they are delicious! Thanks Linda and Co-host Judy! Can't wait to return in the future!
