Very well kept. Comfortable and cozy!
We had a great time during our stay in Benton, PA. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The property offered beautiful scenery and, as a bonus, quadding trails. It was very close to Ricketts Glen State Park and the many beautiful waterfalls. Definitely going to be back and when we do we hope to stay at "Almost Alaska".
Peaceful, relaxing stay
We rented the cabin to go hiking in Rickett's Glen state park. Unfortunately the rain the previous week washed out some of the trails and they were closed. We were able to hike the lower Evergreen trail. We rented canoes and kayaks at Lake Jean and enjoyed a picnic on the shore of one of the little islands. The cabin was clean and had everything needed for a nice relaxing stay. Plenty of dry firewood was provided. There was plenty to do in the surrounding area. We had a great time and wished we could have stayed longer.
Very cozy cabin!
We loved our stay at Almost Alaska. The cabin is clean and comfortable and provides some cooking utensils, dishes, and other items you may need. The decks surrounding the cabin and the seating area around the campfire provided many places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Dry firewood was provided near the fire pit. As another reviewer stated we also did not have cellphone service while at the cabin. This was okay with us but may not be for others. There are many things to do in the neighboring towns and we appreciated that the owner’s left some pamphlets and other info at the cabin. We would definitely stay here again.
Our stay was great!!!
Cabin was great, we didn't hike around the property, but it looked very nice. Everything was very clean when we arrived. Local area is great, we can't wait until we can come back!
Cozy cabin get-away
Such a great spot right down the road from Ricketts Glen! Enjoyed the outdoor space on the property in the morning and under the stars at night. And even in June it was cold enough to cozy up by the wood stove!
Our stay at Almost Alaska was beyond wonderful! It was clean, peaceful, and had so much natural beau
My husband and I were so impressed with the vacation here. We were able to see two bear running through the woods next to our camp fire and a red breasted robin family nesting right next to us. When we walked in we enjoyed all the special little details in the cabin and felt so welcomed. There were deer to see all around us as we took some drives around Benton and the surrounding cities. The waterfalls at ricketts glen were beautiful and altogether the trip was so relaxing! We want to come back in the future!
