Quiet Cabin 20 Minutes From Elk Mountain/dogs Ok/easy Drive From Philly and NYC

Family-friendly cabin in Susquehanna
**Our cabin is cleaned and sanitized by a professional crew after each rental**

Discover the beautiful Endless Mountain region in Northeastern PA. Situated above the Poconos, you will find quaint country towns, antique shops, art, music, historical sites, scenic country roads, long lazy rivers, game lands, trout streams, a plethora of restaurants and the highly regarded Elk Mountain Ski Resort (13.6 miles/25 minutes).

The cabin is 1500 sq. ft. located on four very private acres situated on a bluff situated above a thickly wooded, country lane. The owners do not live on site, so you have full access to the cabin and property. While only 7 miles from historic Susquehanna and just a few minutes from the state highway, you will feel miles away from civilization.

This well-appointed cabin features a fully equipped kitchen with oven, stove, refrigerator, blender, toaster, microwave, crock pot, and all of the plates, glasses, pots and pans you will need. Coffee drinkers can choose between the Keurig and the traditional coffee maker. The living room features a nice wood burning fireplace, flat screen television (with a ROKU and about 20 local channels - no cable) and plenty of comfy seating. There are two large bedrooms upstairs with a total of 5 twin beds, 1 double bed, and a couple of spare futons for the kids. There are two full bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. There is a smaller bedroom downstairs that has been converted to a sitting lounge with games, books, karaoke and bar supplies. Set up your laptop and take advantage of the fast, free Wi-Fi.

A large porch wraps around two sides of the cabin - the front is covered for rainy days while the side has an outdoor table for dining under the stars. Roast some marshmallows over the fire pit, play a leisurely game of badminton, throw some horseshoes or simply relax out on the lawn chairs and take in the views. Nights are typically clear and cool for stargazing.

Guests have four full acres to roam on the property, as well as country roads for biking, trails for hiking (Florence Shelley Nature Preserve, Salt Springs State Park, D&H Rail Trail), nearby state game lands, trout streams, golf courses, and much more. The woods feature cherry, maple, ash and soaring pine trees as well as a wide variety of animals including deer, fox, turkey, and black bear. Like to fish? There are trout streams nearby and a few public access lakes. Have a canoe or kayak? The Susquehanna River is down the road. There are State Game Lands throughout Susquehanna County for deer and turkey hunting in the fall. It is also near the Aaronic Priesthood Restoration Site.

Guests do not need to meet with the owner to check in. There is a keypad on the door. No key exchange needed. Directions provided upon booking.

Important Notes:

-This is a remote cabin and we do our best to keep it neat and tidy, but do remember that this is a cabin in the woods, not a hotel!

-We do not provide sheets and towels, in that there is no washer/dryer on site and your own sheets, pillowcases and towels are much more sanitary. However, there are plenty of comforters, blankets, and pillows provided which are switched out often. There are laundromats nearby for the needs of our longer term guests.

-Really Important: You will need to take your trash with you at the conclusion of the rental. We are quite remote and do not have trash service. There are local drop off points for garbage but they have limited hours--we have provided directions in the cabin. Most plan on taking their garbage home with them. Unfortunately there are no exceptions to this policy.

The heat is electric baseboard and controlled in each room through a wall thermostat. There is a window unit AC upstairs for that very rare warm evening.

This beautiful property is just waiting for your arrival! We respectfully request that you treat this property with the same respect that you do your own home. Please clean up as needed, take garbage, and leave the furnishings as they were upon check-in. Please note that we do have the cabin professionally cleaned after each rental. Be careful with the fire pit. It can get very windy! Food and garbage needs to be store inside to keep the wildlife away (bears are quickly drawn to outdoor trash). Sheets, towels, and pillowcases must be provided by the guest. Well-behaved dogs are ok but a flat pet fee applies, No cats, please.

Please note: Hunting is NOT permitted on the property, but there are plenty of nearby game lands.

Winter Guests: You will most likely need 4WD. Our driveway is plowed, but steep.

##We do not provide firewood. Wood can be purchased locally##
Air-conditioned accommodation at this cabin offers fireplaces and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and hairdryers.

Spring Dads Getaway
Allen was a fantastic host. Gave us extremely detailed instructions that was super helpful. The property sits on a hill overlooking the the forest for great views. No active neighbors nearby. Great woods to hike behind the property. Huge firepit. Plenty of chairs. New grill. Close to towns nearby. Will definitely consider coming back in the fall!!

5/5 Excellent

Peace and quiet that you want! Cabin is nice. Away from highway and only 1 neighbor we saw the whole time at the cabin.

4/5 Good

Very good ski house
We really enjoyed our stay at the charming, rustic home. It's definitely food people who like being out in the woods. Owner was not kidding about needing 4-wheel drive to get up the drive-way. Great proximity to Elk Mountain. Greek Peak in NY not too far away either.

5/5 Excellent

Short vacation

5/5 Excellent

Cabin ski getaway
Four of us came up for. 2-night stay to ski at nearby Elk mountain. Exactly as advertised. Fireplace served the whole cabin well on the cold nights. Great value for the cost.
