About Seth Conner and Kevin Frantz
Kevin Frantz and Seth Conner, owners, have been enjoying this region of PA since childhood. Both avid outdoorsmen, this area has fit our lifestyle for over 40 years and we are excited to provide this vacation spot so that others can experience the beauty of the PA Wilds.
Seth Conner and Kevin Frantz purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2015
Why Seth Conner and Kevin Frantz chose Driftwood
We purchased this property and built this home mainly due to its perfect location in the heart of the Pennsylvania Elk Range. Just minutes from Benezette, guests can take a short drive to the Winslow Hill Elk viewing center or even closer, the Hicks run viewing area. Speaking of Hicks Run, 1 mile from the home is some of the greatest trout fishing water in the region. If elk viewing is your reason for visiting, you may not even have to leave the side deck. Elk frequently roam right through the yard. Located on top of the mountain, privacy, peace and quiet are the best features of this location. There isn't another camp in sight.

College Roommates Get Together
For the past 3 years six college housemates have met for a weekend of gabbing and laughing. This was the perfect place! Beautiful cabin inside and out! We had a great time searching for and viewing the elk, visiting the winery, and eating at Benezette Hotel. Thanks for the great weekend!
Secluded, Peaceful, Cozy
Having stayed in Benezette for many years in the past, this cabin was a nice change. The Barr None Lodge and property are exactly as described, in a peaceful and secluded mountain location. Plenty of room, Beautiful rustic decor, Great porch Our grandsons loved it, we spotted a lot of Elk on our drives to and from the cabin. (Including 3 Bulls right on Hicks Run Rd) Already making plans for next year at one of this owner's properties!
Can’t wait to come back again. Love coming here.
Great place!!! Very CLEAN. Tried to make it just as clean when we left. Privacy was awesome! Saw a mother bear and her cub in the back yard! When I messaged Seth he got right back to me about the fire pit. THANK YOU for a great trip!
Awesome property! Loved the location. Clean house with all the comforts of home in a quiet, peaceful setting. Enjoyed the porch and fire pit so much. Thanks for everything. Would recommend people write down the directions and entry/WiFi info before they loose service as we learned that lesson when we got there and couldn’t access email with those details but I guess I rely more on my phone than I should. Great trip, with many elk sitings. We’re planning to return next year!
We are located in the heart of the elk range with several viewing areas close by. Hicks Run viewing area is a 5 minute drive and the Winslow Hill loop is just down the road from there. If you're looking for elk, you shouldn't have any trouble finding them.
