Benezette cabin description

We have a variety of rental cabins to meet your need for any getaway - family vacation, friendly outing or romantic interlude. Several modern, knotty pine cabins nestled in a wooded setting along the Bennett Branch of Sinnemahoning Creek in the shadows of Moshannon and Elk State Forests. Five cabins with two bedrooms each - one which is handicap / wheelchair accessible and five 'romantic' cabins with great room including a whirlpool tub fit for two to use! Separate utility shanty / community building includes phone, TV/VCR/DVD, the main hub for high speed wireless internet access (7 total hubs on grounds), coin operated washer/dryer, games, reading materials and information on local attractions.

Cabins sleep from one to six people per cabin.

The cabin grounds are arranged to provide privacy at each cabin yet allow group gatherings to have ease of movement. Picnic pavilion on the grounds (four 6 person tables) with its own fire ring.

Great place to enjoy all that mother nature can offer in Pennsylvania - plenty of woods, trails, and wildlife in the area including the largest free-roaming elk herd east of the Mississippi.

Driving excursions include wineries, antique shops, historic sites, and scenic tours. Stop at the Elk Country Visitor Center or the historic Straub Brewery.

Cabins fully furnished and equipped with many extras to give you the escape you want and the quality time we all need. Contact us to arrange your getaway!
