We were pleased with our stay at Cozy red camp.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the house with my son and daughter-in-law. The house was nice, cozy is a good name for the place. It has a good size kitchen equipped with everything you need. There is a dining area off the kitchen. The bathroom on the main floor is real nice, it has separate tub and shower, they provided towels, and wash cloths. The bedroom on the main floor was comfortable and a good size. It was also great to have a half bath in the upstairs, where there were several beds to choose from to sleep in.

We went to the area to see elk and other wildlife and were not disappointed. We saw many, many elk on our evening drives. There were some elk in the yard a house away from this one.

We also like to hike and there are thousands of state lands to do that on that are very close to the house. We also went to the Elk Visitor Center in Benezette, which is just a short drive away. It is very interesting.

The owners of the home gave us good directions to find the house, and helpful information about the area. The owners responded quickly to questions I emailed them about, and gave us their contact information in case we had questions after we arrived. We recommend this place.

Thank you.

Great Trip with lots of Elk sightings!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here back in October. It was the perfect size for our family. Everything that was needed was provided including directions to town and points of interest. Very clean. It was actually closer to town and not as secluded as we thought. Driving around we saw elk very near the road just across from the train tracks and also right out the windows of the cabin. In town we had great adventures stopping along the way to see the elk. We plan on making this a yearly trip! Thank you!

Well maintained and very clean .

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weekend getaway! The grandkids had plenty of room to run around. The fire pit was a big hit . Enjoyed sitting around the fire and making smores. There was a full moon which lit up the fields at night. Unfortunately we missed the bull that was spotted in the field the one evening. Had plenty of room in the house to accommodate our large group. It was very convenient to get to the elk center and viewing areas. We even got to chat with the owners of the camp, which were very friendly. Looking forward to returning next year.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday and left on Monday.

The property was clean and had everything you could need. The local people were warm and welcoming! The Medix Run Hotel was close and had good food. We also enjoyed speaking with your parents! We visited the Elk Center and the local Restaurants and Bennezet Winery. But, the star of our weekend were the amazing Elk that visited your property!! We went to local viewing areas, but in reality we did not have to leave your cabin!!! We saw many "Bull" , four at one time, we saw the "Big" Bulls harem and calfs . It was truly spectacular...We saw them fight with their Antlers, we heard their chirps and bugling...It was a perfect time....We hope to return.
