ALF Weekend at the River
Such a wonderful break from a hotel! We had 8 of us sharing this cabin and we had a great time! The scenery was breathtaking. We had plenty of options for catching up with old classmates. Multiples sitting areas inside and a gorgeous porch and deck outside. The firepit came in handy with the cooler evenings. Kitchen area was a little small and the spiral staircases were a little troublesome for 50+ year olds, but overall a fantastic place to stay!

5/5 Excellent

Guy’s Weekend Trip
This property was such a perfect for our yearly Guy’s Weekend. The deck and porch was fantastic for hanging out. The property was spacious and private. Getting to the location was a bit confusing to it’s how back into the woods it is, but so worth having the privacy! Definitely would stay here again!

3/5 Okay

Septic and mold issue
The home smelled, because they apparently had a septic issue. Maybe it was fixed, but it still smelled very bad. There was also mold on the ceiling above the beds in the one loft area. The owner responded, sending someone to "treat" the mold, but it didn't really help. Owner also said he would send the septic guy, but even if he came, the home still smelled bad inside and out. The home itself was kind of cool, log cabin style. It was on the Clarion river, and had beautiful views. Owner's father rented his kayaks to us, which was much appreciated. We cut our vacation short a day, and would not recommend returning, unless mold is remediated and septic smell is gone.

5/5 Excellent

Guys Get Away
Booked this cabin for a friend who was getting married. He just wanted to relax and fish. We arrived to the cabin and the check in process was simple. The owners answered all my question before arriving and made it simple. If you are looking for a relaxing weekend get away this Is the spot. Bring your boat and jet skis.

5/5 Excellent

Great Getaway
My husband and I had a wonderful trip, even though it rained the covered front porch was a wonderful place to enjoy the day overlooking the river. We are planning another trip here in a month.
