The cabin is situated on 650 acres of privately owned forest, adjacent to the North Country Hiking Trail and the Clarion River, yet is only minutes from Clarion, PA. The cabin is available year round.
Between the months of May and November dock space on the Clarion River is provided so you can dock your boat, kayak, swim, fish or just relax on the river. This section of the Clarion River provides approximately 14 miles of deep water for water skiing and jet-skiing enthusiasts or easy paddling for a variety of other water sports.
Additionally, the property is home to approximately 4 miles of the National Parks administered North Country Trail. Cathedral cabin, named for the retrofitted church windows and forest cathedral, sits on the trail. Put your hiking boots on, open the door, step off the porch and your hike begins. Guests may choose from at least 4 different trail heads to begin a short hike or walk the entire length of the trail on this property. Ambitious hikers may walk from the cabin all the way to Cook's Forest without leaving the Trail.
Cathedral Cabin was completed in the late Fall of this year, 2014. It has a complete kitchen featuring native Cherry hardwood cabinets, a half bath on the main floor and full bath with slate stone shower in the loft. Ideally suited for a couple or adults and their children, it may accommodate up to six people. The open floor plan provides lots of dining and living space inside with a unique covered porch for outdoor entertainment. The fire pit expands the outdoor living experience and makes it difficult to end the day. If you like natural you will like Cathedral Cabin. Knotty maple walls, beamed Hemlock ceilings, Sassafras and Larch floors are accented with some brightly colored walls to create a cheery cabin environment. The antique and rustic furnishings help set the tone for a relaxing, fun stay in the wilds. Remember, however, that this 650 acre wooded property is only minutes from the college community of Clarion, PA, and Interstate 80, with easy access to shopping and entertainment.
