Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2). Discounts for more than two night stays.

Wood Cliff Cabin is a secluded four-season retreat, a small hand-built haven providing luxurious beauty and alternative energy, perched on a cliff, 80' above a mountain stream. One room convenience includes a queen loft bed, fully equipped kitchen, deck and plenty of storage. In the adjacent bath house you will find the sauna, shower and composting toilet. Beautiful details complement the treetop views, including the 80’ cliff overlooking our mountain creek. Your host built this unique cabin in 2009, using ten different woods, with forest-honoring window friezes, custom metalwork and local stone.

The cabin is a five minute walk from your car. We will deliver you and your luggage to the site in our Kubota utility vehicle, which you may use during your stay. Once you arrive, we will introduce you to the energy systems. 12-volt batteries supply power for LED lighting, stereo, a ceiling fan, as well as cell phone and laptop charging. Propane runs the refrigerator, cook stove, a wall heater, a Weber grill on the deck, and additional lighting. A lovely woodstove provides warmth and charm. Our delicious well water is gravity-fed to the cabin and bath house.

We welcome travelling contemplatives, romantics, naturalists and artists to our hermitage.

When you are seeking restoration that uninterrupted time offers, come to our quiet retreat and become one with the forest.

Experience conscious consumption and focused attention to details. Enjoy the heightened awareness that only solitude brings.

Give yourself a solo or couple vacation devoted to recovering peace and joy. Slow down to the rhythm of nature and your own pace.

About michael kryzytski

Mike is a professional cabinet and furniture maker. He built the entire cabin as if it were a cabinet and furnished the interior with his own work. Nancy is a calligrapher and artist, and her work adorns the inside of the cabin as well. Our house is five minutes from the cabin, so we are generally available to assist you in any way necessary.

michael kryzytski purchased this cabin in 2009

Why michael kryzytski chose Allegheny Mountains & Her Valleys

Mike and Nancy have been dreaming of building a small cabin and sauna on this property since 1989. In 2005 Mike built the wood-fired sauna which now also houses the shower and toilet for the adjacent cabin, which was completed in the Spring of 2010. The property is ideally situated, minutes from the Bald Eagle State Forest in one direction and the historic town of Lewisburg, 15 minutes in the other direction.

What makes this cabin unique

Listen to the quiet music of the creek, the soft song of the wind in the trees, the welcome interruptions of birds’ many calls. Smell the clean forest air, fragrant pines, pennyroyal or even skunk cabbage! Enjoy the rich mossy forest floor and cozy wood fires. Observe the play of light, constantly changing. Sun rises late to wake you in the loft bed, then sparkles on the water and projects surprise animations and shadows all around the cabin before setting over the deck. Your fresh meals grilled out on the deck or enjoyed inside wake up your taste buds. Perhaps you’ll try a wintergreen berry? Our pure clean well water is truly delicious. Wade in the shallow creek and dunk in the deeper pools. Play with clay from the banks, hug those trees, and touch the stones, bones and cones you will find. In Winter, fire-up the sauna and experience the refreshing feeling.

A classy "wilderness" getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place in so many different ways. Craftsmanship at every turn, complementary artwork exactly where needed, and complete focus on clients comfort. Well equipped cabin tucked away in what is designed to feel very much like a wilderness location. The owners are clearly determined to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. Michael shows enviable creativity in the way he brings creature comforts into the wilderness. Lastly, the Wood Cliff Cabin served me well as my basecamp for the Little League World Series.

Everything was so clean, organized and well thought out.

  • 5 of 5

The location is private and we enjoyed the early morning wildlife from our bed. It was only a short drive to kayak rentals and wonderful unique restaurants. We plan to come back!

This is a beatifully peaceful and meditative retreat cabin in the woods. The eco-friendly innovation of the very kind owners is inspiring, and the attention to accommodating details is superb. It doesn't get more relaxing than this. & lots of GREAT hiking right down the road.

Calming, Comfortable, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely cabin in August 2017. Having recently sold our pop-up camper, we have vowed to take advantage of opportunities like this. Now we are unsure if we will try any others. That's how much this place met our desires. Far enough from civilization to not worry about anyone even knowing we are there, but close enough to necessities if ... necessary. It was fun to read about others who felt free enough to dance in their underwear while there!

There are so many good books to explore in the cabin. And don't be shy about pulling out the drawers under the loft bed (they are much deeper than they first appear). The stream was an utter delight. The pull-out pantry beside the stove is well stocked (but could be freshened up a bit - when we return we will leave behind some garlic powder and a few others, haha). We LOVED waking up to be able to see out all the windows from the loft bed. The Kubota ride from the cabin to the house (or vice versa) is very quick - about a quarter mile, and easily walked.

The hosts are generous and happy to have you there to appreciate their hard labors. If you're a dog person, like me, you'll also love their dog, Nelson! She's a bundle of energy, but will gladly calm down and roll over for a tummy rub.

We spent most of our time on the balcony/deck, down at the creek, or reading in the rocking chair. We wanted for nothing, and are already planning a return stay.
