Coudersport cabin description

Cabin Lodging near Cherry Springs State Park Star Gazing. Remote, Private Hilltop Cabin with a 10 acre star gazing field on a parallel with Cherry Springs State Park. Cherry Springs Cabin Lodging. Located in Potter County Pa in the Pa Wilds. Close to Ski Denton.
Nestled on a hilltop, amidst 50 acres of forests and meadows, is a secluded retreat known as BLUE SKIES LODGE. Far away from the noise of traffic, the glare of street lights and the madness of shopping malls, is a quiet place where you can REST, RELAX and RECHARGE.

At the end of a driveway that winds its way towards heaven, is this serene, restful place - a place where you can make time almost stand still.

As the premiere Getaway Cabin providers in the PA Wilds, we invite you to BLUE SKIES LODGE.

Leave your job and chores behind; forget about that annoying boss or employee; escape from the endless stop-and-go traffic of life. Take a detour to our cabin for a few days.

Bring a comfortable pair of walking shoes, go hiking, biking, or just lounge on the deck and read a good book. Or if you were 'Born to be Wild' bring the dirt bikes or ATVs, snowmobiles or skis.

We provide 'Flex Scheduling' to accommodate your busy lifestyle, so you're not locked into weekends or full weeks. Come when you wish . . . stay as long as you like.

Our 'Easy-Pack' Vacation Plan means we provide little luxuries and necessities for your comfort and enjoyment, so you spend less time packing and shopping - and more time relaxing.

As local owners, we are always here to make sure the cabin is clean and comfortable, and to help with any special needs that may arise.

~*~ THE LODGE ~*~
Our completely-renovated first floor features a fully-equipped kitchen, six-seat dining area and cozy den. The elegant red-and-gold-themed bedroom boasts a sumptuous queen-sized bed. The spacious bathroom includes a convenient laundry center, towels, soap and personal toiletries.

Climb the wide staircase to the Lodge-style Gathering Room, with front and rear access to the wrap-around deck. Have a seat at the built-in bar for a drink and a chat, play a rousing game of foosball or a quiet board game, or wander out onto the deck to enjoy our magnificent Northern Pennsylvania scenery.

Down the hallway is a rustic bedroom with an Amish-made, Queen-sized log bed and views of the woods and picnic area. Across the hall is the bear-themed childrens' room, with log bunk beds, games and toys.

When night falls, you can enjoy a soak in the 'Gone Fishing' bathroom, complete with towels and soap (and new, spare toothbrushes and toothpaste, should you forget yours).

There are plenty of DVDs and video tapes to watch on the 32' flat-screen TV.

Located on the same parallel (41 degrees N) as Cherry Springs State Park, a Dark Sky Preserve, BLUE SKIES LODGE has a 10-acre open field with magnificent viewing capabilities. Bring your telescope - or just your eyes and a blanket. You will be amazed at the number of stars you can see here!

PLEASE NOTE: Since we are at the top of a long lane, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is necessary during winter weather.

- - - - - - - NOTABLE FACTS ABOUT THE AREA - - - - - - -

Coudersport is a borough in Potter County, Pennsylvania, 110 miles (180 km) east by south of Erie, on the Allegheny River. The population was 1,530 in 1890; 3,217 in 1900; 3,100 in 1910. The population at the 2000 census was 2,650. It is the county seat of Potter County.

The center of town is located 41.774768,-78.020868.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total land area of 5.7 square miles (14.7 km²).

Coudersport lies in a broad valley at the joining of the Allegheny and Mill Creek rivers, surrounded by the great hilltop plateaus of the Allegheny highlands.

The town is accessible from the north and south by Pennsylvania Route 44 (the old Jersey Shore Turnpike logging road) and from the west and east by U.S. Route 6, a.k.a. the 'Grand Army of the Republic Highway'.

The Allegheny River finds its headwaters on Cobb Hill, just east of Coudersport, approximately 10 miles south of the New York border. It flows west through Coudersport, then turns north into western New York, looping westward across southern Cattaraugus County for approximately 30 miles, past Portville, Olean, St. Bonaventure University and Salamanca and flowing through Seneca Indian Nation lands close to the northern boundary of Allegany State Park before re-entering northwestern Pennsylvania approximately 20 miles southeast of Jamestown, New York.

Coudersport is home to a 5,000-member, Scottish Rite Consistory, the largest in the Scottish Rite by per capita membership. It is also home to many small businesses, from doctors, dentists and lawyers to restaurants, hotels, motels, inns and rental cabins.

Coudersport was the home of 'Untouchable' Eliot Ness at the time of his death.

The Coudersport Area Recreation Park (CARP) is a sports and recreation park which was begun in the 1960s by a group of town leaders (including Dr. William L. Mitchell, a local veterinarian). It contains a football field with track and field capabilities, baseball and softball fields, basketball courts, picnic areas and hiking trails.

Coudersport has the former headquarters of Adelphia Communications, including the 72,000 SF Adelphia Operations Center, built at an estimated cost of $30 million. Adelphia went bankrupt after internal corruption earlier in the 2000s.

The fictional town of Farringdon, depicted in the Judy Bolton detective series by Margaret Sutton, is based on Coudersport, where Ms. Sutton grew up and attended school. The school, town hall, and several recognizable residences are described in her books. Judy Bolton Days, an annual festival honoring the books of the late Margaret Sutton, is hosted each October by the local Chamber of Commerce.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Potter County and the PA Wilds are the most sparsely populated areas in the entire state of Pennsylvania, offering breathing room and a chance to slow down and escape from your routine.

                          Why the Owner Chose Coudersport:
                          Potter County, with its rolling hills and star-filled skies, is one of the most beautiful areas of Pennsylvania. We came here on vacation many years ago, and fell in love. Now we want to share it with you.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Cherry Springs State Park is a Star Gazers Paradise. 'On top of the world', is the feeling you get at this mountain-top retreat, where stars are your nightlights, birdsong is your alarm clock, and crickets chirp you to sleep. The remoteness of the location will enable you to consider the magnificence of the heavens, view wildlife in their natural habitat, and allow you to truly relax.
