Overview

About the property

Sleeps 8. 2 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom

Our cabin is located near the small settlement of Neilltown (actually a crossroads with 6 homes and a church) 9 miles from Tionesta & Titusville and within the western part of the PA Wilds, adjacent to the Allegheny National Forest and Wilderness Area. You can come here to relax, find peace and quiet, and refresh your spirit in the solitude of the Big Woods. Or, you can find more activities than you can possibly do in one visit. Forest County is PA’s least populated county where camps outnumber residences.

The cabin, Procrastination Station, can sleep 6 to 8 people. It has 2 bedrooms; a queen size bed in one, a queen size bunk bed in the other, a full bath with shower, and a fully equipped kitchen. The living room has a sofa with a double pull out bed. It has a flat screen TV with DVD player and a DVD Library for young and old alike, games and books. There is a modern wood stove, propane heater, and outside features are a rear deck, a graveled 16ft x 24ft picnic pavilion with picnic table, lawn chairs, gas grille, fire ring and dry firewood. All you have to do is bring your own food or choose restaurants in nearby Pleasantville and Titusville.

We have 600 private acres for hiking, biking and enjoying the bear, deer, turkey’s, bobcats, small wildlife, birds, trout and bass fishing at its finest. Hunting can be arranged in season. In nearby Tionesta, Eagles nest along the Allegheny River and soar over the Wilds. You will be close to Cooks Forest State Park with its virgin timber, Tionesta Dam for swimming and boating, tubing, kayaking and canoeing on the Allegheny River, Drakes Well in Titusville - the Birth Place of the Oil Industry, Cornplanter and Oil Creek State Parks, Kinzua Dam & Recreation Area and several huge State Game Lands.

We are also adjacent to the Great Lakes Region. Within a 1 ½ hour trip you can be to Lake Erie, Presque Isle, Waldameer Amusement Park, Presque Isle Downs Casino and Racetrack, Wine Country Tours, ski resorts, and more.

Why Patty or Andy Francisco chose Pennsylvania

We bought this property as a vacation rental property. We felt that since we love to spend our free time at vacation rentals that we wanted to do this for other people too. We are looking forward to sharing with you.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is uniquely located on the border of two of Pennsylvania's most attractive tourist regions: The Pa. Wilds, and the Great Lakes Region. It is modern but with still a touch of the atmosphere of an old time camp.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything at the cabin was well equipped. Having firewood on site was a big plus. Ceiling fans and AC were also helpful. You had everything we needed for the week-end (except the food) haha!

Hope to return again in the future.

Very well kept and much better than described or anticipated.

  • 5 of 5

The camp was even better than described or pictured at the time of booking. Nearly every amenity you could need was on sight. Having pre cut and pre stacked wood both inside and out was a real plus. Although you can see other camp properties in the distance, the wood line provides exceptional privacy and a sound barrier. It was quiet and peaceful all throughout our stay. If that area of forest county is what you are looking for I definitely recommend booking.

We were very impressed with the value of this cabin for our family reunion. My dad and two sisters plus myself stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the facilities very much. If you forget something you need for cooking, you can probably find it in their assortment of extra items you may use or need!

They have a gas grill AND a charcoal grill outside under the pavilion, as well as picnic tables.

I would highly recommend this cabin for a relaxing get away!

Second Time

  • 5 of 5

Second time we stayed here.Another great time had by all. Nice place for a getaway. Plenty of things to do in the area. Cabin is as depicted in narrative and photos. Everything you need (except food and beverages) is at the cabin including wood for the outdoor fire pit. Owners have added several new additions since our last visit - property is well maintained. Patty and Andy are easy to work with via phone or email - respond very quickly. I would recommend the cabin. We personally spend all our time at the cabin outdoors around the campfire - there is a nice lighted pavilion with tables to make campfire cooking easy. Other cabins are in the area but you have plenty of privacy.

Fishing

There is trout fishing on East Hickory Creek, 3 miles; Pit Hole Creek, 5 miles; Tionesta Creek/reservoir, 10 miles and beyond, Toms Run, and Blue Jay Run to name a few. E. Hickory Creek, Tionesta Creek, and Blue Jay will be stocked on 5/18/15 !

There is a fishing map showing locations on the wall in the bunk bedroom. There are 2 poles for your use also in the bedroom, and a small green tackle box in the utility room. A stocking schedule is on the refrigerator and related publications on the coffee table.

The Allegheny River is good for Walleye, Bass & Perch. I could probably arrange a boat and local guide for the river, or to show you a place on the bank. I can also arrange a Charter fishing trip on Lake Erie for Walley and Perch; about a 1 ½ hour trip.

Swimming

Tionesta Creek at the overflow park, 10 miles; Two Mile Run Park south of Titusville, the Allegheny River north of Tionesta for tubing, kayaking, canoeing. Cook Forest State Park, 25 mile, would also provide the above, along with picnicking, trails, rides and other recreation.

Chapman State Park, and Kinzua Dam are in adjacent Warren Co. within 40 – 50 miles.

For a day trip, there is Presque Isle State Park in Erie where you’ll think you are at the ocean!
