About the property

4 Bedroom Cabin on a beautiful Wooded Lot **Off the Beaten Path**

So, we are NOT the kind of Cabin that looks like a cabin but has all the fancy bells and whistles. We are a dirt road, GPS won't get you here, starry night by the fire kind of Cabin in the Woods; made to get you UNPLUGGED and spending that long lost REAL Face-time with your family & your buds. So, if you are looking for a place where you can 'get away' but not really ditch your cell phone, email, facebook etc, Just STOP reading... you are barking up the wrong tree!

If you are still reading this, YOU ROCK! This cabin is a Hidden Gem & I am so Lucky to have found it. I'm delighted to Share it with like-minded folks. It's simple, it's comfortable and you will Love it. We're secluded & quiet but close to lots of activities. We're pet friendly, kid friendly & easy to work with. I try to keep my price simple too, so if you find a comparable property that costs less, I'll hook you up.

The technical details: Dead End, 3 wooded acres, bordered by LOTS more (state forest) --- Wood burning fireplace, front & back deck, 4 bedrooms, 1.5 baths --- 3 Q, 2 T (not bunks), 1 F size Futon & a Q pull out sofa --- All Mattresses new in 2016 & all Linens provided --- Fully equipped kitchen, gas grill outside (propane provided) --- 2 32" Insignia Flatscreens w/DVD players & lots of DVD's--- IF you are still wondering about Internet, <sigh> Let it go... NO INTERNET, NO CABLE, CELL RECEPTION is NOT very good. (We have an Old-fashioned Land Line phone you can use)

Included: A small swimming/fishing lake, beach & pavilion area

9 hole golf course

***We have updated the well water filtration system in 2016. The previous reviews regarding water discolor are no longer an issue. The water is perfectly safe to drink and use***

-- Must be 25 to RENT --

About Christina Stehr

We are a family that enjoys traveling together, meeting new people and experiencing the Beauty of the Great Outdoors. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the Peace of Mind that nature can offer us from our busy lives. We Value the chance to unwind with family, friends and fresh air whenever possible & Hope that we can offer a Great Escape for others as well.

Christina Stehr purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Christina Stehr chose Laurel Highlands

It's the best of both worlds. Our cabin is 15-20 minutes away from endless activities that we've enjoyed all our lives. Seven Springs and Hidden valley, Frank Lloyd Wrights falling water, Ohiopyle, Laurel Caverns, snowmobiling, quad riding, backpacking, rock climbing, etc.. But if you just want to get away, it's the perfect place to escape the crowds; unplug, unwind and re-charge.

What makes this cabin unique

We're surrounded by nature, but close enough to everything we could ask for. Kings Mountain (where we are located) was a resort community that never actually became a resort community. So, there is a 9 hole golf course & a small fishing/swimming lake with a beach area within walking distance. Most of the lots in the community were never built on so the property is Very Secluded, and the few neighbors that live there full time are Great. You can walk right out the driveway and into Forbes State Forest. This place is Hidden Gem and we are so lucky to have found it!

In a word, WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. What an amazing stay!!! My husband, kids and I stayed for three nights after Christmas and it was everything that we wanted!!! I bundled up and sat by an endless fire pit and read while the kids explored the woods; afterwards we played games and the kids discovered Seinfeld. I was in PA for a week visiting family and this was exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves before the new year. There is some cell phone service at the kitchen table (much to my disappointment ;-) ) but everything else is so quiet, completely secluded and utterly relaxing. I saw some reviews about things being "dated" and, sure, it's not brand new but that's what makes it so charming! My husband says it feels like a 5 star hunting camp. The only thing that I might recommend is to either turn up the temperature on the water heater or get a bigger water heater. We had to boil water so that we could all take warm baths and there were only four of us. I absolutely recommend this property for anyone looking to truly get away. We are so anxious to plan our next trip to this wonderful cabin with the most accommodating and kind hosts. Absolutely wonderful!!!

Wonderful place for a weekend in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described, out even better. There were six of us on a team building trip, and the house was roomy and nice. Everything in the house is a little bit dated, but we expected that and it was actually charming. Everything was also very clean, which is a big priority of mine. Communication with the host and all the instructions were very efficient and clear. We had lots of fun, used the grill for dinner, made a fire by the fire pit, played games, etc.

The only issue we encountered is not being able to find extra toilet paper and paper towels, but I'm sure there was some kind of supply closet that we missed. Also, bringing out own water was a good idea.

I would highly recommend this host and would certainly book with them again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review Anna. We are so glad that you and your friends enjoyed our home. I appreciate the 'charming' comment, as I agree with you. We are slowly working on updating the home, but hope to always keep that 'charming' feel. I do apologize if there were not enough toilet paper rolls, I try to leave 2 rolls in each bathroom. As for the paper towels, we will typically leave a partial roll, but do not provide extra's. I will check to make sure that is in our list of things to bring. Thank you so much for the response & we hope to have you back for your next getaway.

Tranquil weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

As stated in the description of the property, the location is certainly secluded and tranquil. The cabin was very well kept and offered ample space for our party. Between our hikes, the grill and the back porch allowed us to spend even more time outdoors in a quiet and serene setting. We all enjoyed our stay at the cabin immensely and would highly recommend this property and the property owner, who was extremely easy to get in contact with and was very forthcoming with answers to our questions. In summary, this listing offered great service, a wonderful property and location, and great hiking and biking in the surrounding area.

Thank you very much for a great stay!
