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.

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.

Very nice

Cabin was great for our family. October in PA gets pretty chilly at night but the wood burner heated the cabin up nice and stayed warm all night. We'll definitely rent it again

Cabin was perfect for our stay. Everything you need is supplied. The pictures of the cabin are just what it looks like, very clean and you will just love looking at all the décor. We just loved the rockers on the front porch and the view in back of the cabin is just beautiful, peaceful and quiet. There is a lot do in the area and we are looking forward to our return trip. We went to Kinzua Dam. Our next visit we would like to visit the Skywalk. The drive on rte 6 and rte 666 through the forest is just beautiful. We definitely will be back and highly recommend the cabin. The owners were very accommodating. I emailed Patty several times on questions about the cabin and had replies back the same day.

Thanks Patti and Andy for a beautiful stay.

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.


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!
