The Wright River Retreat is a solid stone cottage situated on the West bank of a private cove of the Clarion River. The Wright Retreat is a destination for all four seasons (as can been seen in the pictures). Whether it's a beautiful sunrise off of the river on a spring morning, a swim in the refreshing river in the summertime, a boat ride on the river to look at the fall foliage, or a walk through the snow-covered hemlocks, the Wright Retreat has something for every season.

Bryan & Liz Huwar purchased this Cottage in 2018
Why Bryan & Liz Huwar chose Shippenville
The solid stone, private, riverfront vacation cottage of the late State Representative and Clarion University Professor, David R. Wright, and his wife, Carolyn, was originally built as a boy scout retreat under the deeded name of Woods Run Settlement. Liz's father said it best in describing the property, "There's nothing you'd ever want to do differently. It's all done just the way you'd want it done."
What makes this Cottage unique
If this property is out of your price range, then venture upriver and up Clarion River Hill to my Dad and Jeanie's timber frame cabin. It's not walk-out riverfront, but it does have river access and it's literally right off of the North Country Trail. Visit them by doing a search for "Clarion River Timberframe Cabin".

Wonderful place to stay right on the river
Way nicer than you can see in the pictures. Very private. Access to river on 2 sides of the bank. Beautiful inside and all amenities there. All you need is to arrive and enjoy. I will definetaly be coming back.
This riverfront property is amazing, we were constantly in awe of the beauty surrounding us.
My husband and I and our three children stayed here for three days in July. We brought our boat and enjoyed waterskiing, swimming and riding down the river enjoying the beautiful scenery. The house is spacious and comfortable and the property is vey private. We all had a wonderful time.
Great place to get away private and serene
Much better than I expected , the website photos did not prepare me for
how fantastic the place really was, the views, the charm of the lodge ,
far from a cottage. Very clean and well maintained.
I hope to return again soon.
