"Roughing it" in Comfort


If you are looking for a place to escape and get back to nature with family and friends, we offer our three-bedroom mountain cabin. The unpaved lane from the main road deadends just past the cabin in the Moshannon State Forest providing access to nearly 200,000 acres of wooded mountain wilderness. Situated on eight private acres, deer, turkey, fox and an occasional bear have been known to make their way past the Lodge. With luck, the creatures may decide to mosey through the yard during your stay. Cedarwood Lodge is a charming post-and-beam cabin with a screened-in porch, small deck, picnic table, gas grill and campfire pit. Firewood is supplied for the indoor woodburner and for starting the pit fire. Guests are asked to gather firewood from the surrounding forest to keep the campfire blazing great for roasting hotdogs, marshmallows, and telling ghost stories. Our "Dark Skies" make star-gazing around the campfire a favorite activity. Cedarwood is designed to be a "getaway with comfort" - the cabin has air conditioning, telephones, TV for playing DVD/VCR videos (no TV reception or internet access) and a fully-equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator, dishwasher and gas stove/oven. Bed and bathroom linens are provided, as are dishes, silverware, utensils, pots, pans and pantry basics such as coffee, tea, sugar, flour, salt, pepper and a few spices. For a final touch, we place our own homemade bread and muffins or coffee cake at the cabin for the first morning's breakfast. Guests renting the property only need to bring food and clothing. For reservations of seven nights and longer, housekeeping is provided weekly....
