Quite, peaceful retreat cabin.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin and property are just as described, (no surprises).

We stayed for a week in July 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (Parents and three adult children). It rained very hard the night before and the day of our arrival which made the creek very high, fast moving and chocolate brown. That did deter us from swimming but did not deter our enjoyment of being so close to the creek. We read, slept, talked, played games, and had movie nights at the cabin. We made two day trips; one into Pittsburgh to ride the Incline, visit the park at the confluence of the three rivers and stroll about the Strip with lunch at the fish market. The second trip was to Presque Isle State Park just north of Erie where we spent the day at one of it's many beaches and rode about on the bike trails. Both were quite fun and just a little over an hour from the cabin.

Stephen and his wife were charming hosts, very low key but eager to ensure all is as expected. (Prompt return on our security deposit.)

Will certainly consider a return visit in the future.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderdul time at the cabin. The property is absolutely beautiful. My husband and I and our 4 children enjoyed our time here and were very comfortable. There was plenty of room for us and our kids loved sleeping in the loft. Being that close to the creek was great for us. We enjoyed exploring and fishing. We saw deer and a bald eagle. Board games were provided and we played those when it rained. It's close to Moraine so we spent a day there swimming. We will definitely consider booking this cabin again for our next trip to PA.

A perfect getaway place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Everything was in ship shape condition. We loved relaxing in the chairs out by the creek and then using the gas grill on the deck to prepare our dinner.

The cabin was very well equipped.

Stephen came by to introduce himself and to check and see if we needed anything.

We would be happy to recommend this vacation rental to others.

Had a blast

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very nice and well maintained. Great, private location that was easy to find via Google Maps directions. Awesome porch area with nice Weber grill. Would recommend bottled water as running water has slightly funky taste... Perfectly fine for showers or dishes though. Plenty of parking and unloading area. Nice fire pit with tons of wood provided (saved us prob $50). Included several kitchen supplies and utensils, extra towels, toiletries. We tied inner tubes to a tree and drifted in the water... Very cool. All had a great time.

This is a very new and very well-maintained attractive cabin with a nice size deck overlooking Slippery Rock Creek. The owner Steven, is a very gracious host. Our group had a very comfortable stay and will be back.
