About Michelle Morrison

We purchased this property from our parents. They were ready to retire. The property has the main 5-6 bedroom log lodge, seven 2-3 bedroom cabins, and six 1-2 bedroom suites. They enjoyed the property for 15 years and we didn't want to see it leave the family. The lodge was their home and we want to use it as a vacation home and share it with others. The property is a must see and perfect for weddings, business functions, family reunions, class reunions or just the family vacation week or weekend.

Michelle Morrison purchased this Lodge in 2015

Why Michelle Morrison chose Gaines

This property has given us many memories over the years. My husband and I met at the property in 2004. We dated visiting the property for two years. We helped build the Spruce Cabin. We enjoy fishing, canoeing, rafting, hiking and snowmobiling from the property. The property has volleyball, horseshoes, and multiple fire rings not to mention the views of Pine Creek are amazing. We were engaged in the Spruce Cabin. Married in the yard with a wedding party of 16 and guests of 250. We also honeymooned in the Oak Cabin.

What makes this Lodge unique

10 Acres of Pine Creek frontage. Amazing fly fishing, hunting and outdoor activities. The PA Grand Canyon. Miles of snowmobile trails around the canyon. Biking and hiking trails forever. Kayaking, canoeing, or rafting and excitement of several waterfalls along the way. Sightseeing galore. Destination motorcycle rides to the Finger Lakes for wine tour after wine tour. The fall leaves are on fire in October. Rally races with cars in the wild woods or craft festivals, Dickens Christmas in Wellsboro, or Denton Archery events. Take your pick for what you enjoy for any time of the year.

                                                              My wife , our children , grandchildren and I spent a very enjoyable weekend at the Rough Cut Lodge. Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations. The cabin was equipped with everything you could ask for and easily accommodated our large family. The porches are also wonderful and give an outstanding view of Pine Creek. Finally, the trout fishing on Pine Creek was spectacular and will go down as some of the best I have ever experienced. We are already planning next year's trip.

                                                              We rented the main lodge for NYE 2015. The lodge is perfect for accommodating larger groups. It is very spacious and provides a great view of the vast property. The facility was in excellent condition and items such as toilet paper, garbage bags, soap, linens, cooking utensils are all provided. The living areas are great for sitting around watching TV or playing board games. The fireplaces around the lodge offer ambiance and efficient heating. I would highly recommend this lodge especially in the summer as the grounds are beautiful.
