Beautiful, Large, Waterfront Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I cannot even put into words how great our weekend was at the Marlun! First off, Doretta was a great host - so friendly! The log home was huge and beautiful. The property is riverfront and very private. Not to mention like the only house with a beautiful, little river beach. We spent almost every day on the river. One day just floating in floats tied to a tree on the beach then the next day canoeing from Tidioute to West Hickory. There were bald eagles flying by as we floated down the river. We loved that the Marlun was pet friendly! Our fur babies got to enjoy our getaway with us, which was great! The locals and other fellow campers were very friendly. The cabin was secluded but not far from stores in the town of Tionesta and Tidioute. We will definitely be back next Summer! Thank you Doretta and the Marlun for your hospitality!

Enjoyed log cabin and riverside experience. Lots of birds and wildlife. Saw doe with 2 fans by the pond one morning, lots of birds. Nest of baby birds and a Woodpecker on outside of cabin.

Enjoyed solitude and being "off the grid" for a week.

It's Even Better Than the Pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We had eight guys stay at the cabin and we were blown away by how large the space was. The walkway down to the river was great. Will definitely consider staying again.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Doretta was an amazing host! We had a fabulous stay at the Marlun, what a beautiful house and property. We were able to bring our dog, enjoy fires by the pond, and pot lucks with good friends. The view and privacy made this house unforgettable, we will definitely be back!

Better than we could have ever immagined

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was bigger, nicer and cleaner than the pictures even show! The ammentities are all there and the beds are COMFORTABLE!!!! You really cant even ask for a better location, it is the last cabin on the road and it is literally 10 feet from the river.

Our crew used it for the winter but I can only imagine how peaceful this place would be on warm summer nights over the fire pit.

The owner was great to deal with, and has a great attitude.

I will be renting every year, making this our annual destination!!

If you are looking for a great place......LOOK NO FURTHER!
