About Dick Heylmun

U of P 54. I am a retired nature lover and am in the process of making available affordable lodgings in the Pine Creek Valley for those who share my enthusiasm and appreciation for what nature provides. My family of 5 sons and 14 grandchildren share in this

enthusiasm. To learn more about me and my family, please visit our Choose-n-cut Christmas Tree web-site

Our objective is to do everything we can to make certain that our visitors have the finest experience possible during their stay with us.

We especially cater to fishermen, hikers, bicyclists, kayakers, bird watchers, (a 1/2 acre hummingbird garden is under development)


Dick Heylmun purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Dick Heylmun chose Allegheny Mountains & Her Valleys

The streamside setting of the cabin with it's large deck overlooking the peaceful flow of the trout stream, below,

provides a marvelous deeply wooded setting for family vacationers and those seeking a restful respite, as well.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin's proximity to some of the finest hiking/biking trails in the nation, 60 miles of kayaking/canoeing water (Pine Creek 3 miles away) plus a variety of the nation's finest trout fishing waters within 30 minutes, makes this an ideal site for a home-away-from-home. It could be used as a year-round residence.

The manager, John, was very helpful and polite. The scenery was peaceful. The lodge was spacious and housed every necessity we needed. We enjoyed the creek right behind the lodge. The state park was just a 2 minute drive up the road. We hooked a few Perch, Sun fish, and Trout and hiked the trails in the area. We plan to come back again.

Thank you Dick and John for the hospitality!

Simply perfect for a quaint, quiet mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

Booked last minute, and it could not have been more perfect! The location is great - creek in the back yard, great food nearby, Pine Creek Lake up the road. Saw Bald Eagles, hummingbirds, beaver and more. While Bear Cabin is very basic, it definitely has charm and we quickly made it out ' home away from home' for a few days. Will need to go more often. We haven't relaxed like that in a long time!! Thank you, Dick and Johnny, for your hospitality!

Exactly as expected and lovely owners.

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised and expected, a little cabin by the stream. It was clean and ready when agreed upon. The owner was very responsive to emails and even gave us suggestions of things to see and do with our kids in the area complete with excellent directions. We had a wonderful time. The caretaker met us upon arrival, opened up the cabin for us and even helped unload a few items from our van. He told us of the local animals that may visit us and while we didn't see any of the Bears we did watch the Blue Heron visit and fish from the stream several times each day. The kids enjoyed throwing rocks in the water from the bank of the stream and the swing is lovely to sit on and bird watch. Hummingbirds came and went from the feeder on the deck.

A tiny getaway in a cute cabin neighborhood.
