Guest Reviews

“We absolutely loved the house! It has every amenity and the beauty cannot be overstated. Every need was taken care of, even the kids were busy every minute! We loved everything and nothing was amiss. Can’t wait to come back!”

Adriana & Mike - Doylestown, PA

“The next time we’ll be back to the lodge, in exactly 5 months, we’ll be getting married here. It’s a very special place. We had a lovely and relaxing weekend despite the cold and dusting of snow. Hiking Tussey Mountain, eating dinner at Elk Creek and enjoying a great bluegrass band there, being able to read and relax in the lodge itself with spectacular views. We can’t wait to be back.”

Julie & Christiana

“It’s truly a special place that we can step through the door and instantly feel at home. Relaxation and family time it was a goal and it couldn’t have been a more successful weekend for both. Thank you for the hospitality, the beautiful lodge and the entire ambience.”
Michelle, Michael, Josh, Jordan, and Ayla

“Wow! All we can say is wow! Upon first arriving, we were totally blown away by the incredible autumn views. We are currently sitting on the porch while my husband enjoys a complimentary beer. I don’t want to move from this spot! We are already planning our next trip here in our heads. We will definitely be back!”
Jordan and Jamie - Hollidaysburg, PA
