is there a way to know how cabins are arranged?

To see how the cabins are arranged, you would just click on that particular cabin and then go through each photo. Usually there are photos of each room inside the cabin. There are no blue print drawings of layout of the rooms if that is what you may mean. If you do not find what you need to know on our website, please call us at 800-531-1545. We will try to give you your needed information.

Jarrod:

If you stay the night of the 1st, it would be full price for that night. Let us know if you want to book the cabin for the first also.

Sorry but our cabins are not equipped with WiFi. You can get WiFi at our home office if you want or need to do that.

Thank you,

You check in at our Home Office on Forest Road, 2808 Forest Road. We are adjacent to Trail’s End Restaurant and across the road from Deer Meadow Campground. Please do not use GPS to find us as you may get lost when trying to find us. Go to our directions page on this web site for specific instructions or use Google Maps or MapQuest.
You receive one load of firewood complimentary with your cabin rental. Additional loads, the same size, are $10 per load. You may request additional firewood when you arrive or during your stay.

Is there bass fishing near the cabins

Mostly trout fishing is nearby. The State stocks the streams with trout.

Hi, I looked everywhere that made sense to look to see how old you have to be in order to rent these cabins and check-in. If you could get back to me as soon as you can that would be great.
Thank you,
A Possible Future Renter.

is there cell service at hidden oaks cabin?

Reply

Lois and Larry March 23, 2016 at 5:10 pm

Michelle:

Sometimes there is cell service there but it is spotty because of the huge trees all around that property. You can get cell service at different areas on our property as there is a tower about 2 miles from us.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Do we need to bring food or is there food that we can purchase there?
Thank you

Veronica: There is a grocery store about 10 miles from us on Route 66 in Leeper, PA. You may want to shop at a larger grocery on the way. It is up to you. They do have everything you need at the Leeper Red and White.

Coming from the north on Rt219.
What is the best way to get to you?
Thanks
Tom

Lois and Larry April 17, 2016 at 9:14 pm

Rt 219 to Rt 6 and then Rt 66 to Vowinckel. At Vowinckel, make a left on Forest Road. On Forest Road, go 3 miles and you will come to a red brick house on the left. Our Home Office is in this Red Brick House. You will go there and pay your balance due and get your key and directions to your cabin. You are scheduled for May 24 in Hidden Oaks Cabin. See you soon.

Hi – My family and I are looking to visit one of your cabins this winter. Any recommendations of nearby winter activities (sledding, tubing, snowshoe paths, hiking, etc)? We will only be staying a weekend so we don’t want to waste too much time traveling in the car, but it will be nice to get out of the cabin and see the area while we’re there.
Thank you!!

Torie:

Winter always has sled riding and there 2 or 3 places to sled ride. You have to bring your own sleds so as long as the weather permits, this would be a great activity.

They rent out cross country skiis and tell you where the trails are at Cooksburg Dry Goods in Cook Forest, phone # 800-680-0160.

You could also bring your own snowshoes and go on some of the 30 plus miles of hiking trails here in Cook Forest State Park.

About our lodging during January, February and March: Sugar Pine Cottage, Blue Spruce, Douglas Fir and Red Maple Cabins are included in our Cabin Fever Special where you rent two nights and get the third night free. Our Cabin Fever Special is for January through March 31, 2017.

You may call to book one of the cabins or go on-line to reserve.

Thank you for your inquiry and we are looking forward tp hearing from you.

Silly question, we planned to do lots of dinners at cabin and I was planning some crock pot meals but forgot to pack. Any chance the cabins have one?

Rosemarie: Some of the cabins do have crock pots. Let me know which one you have rented and I can check for you. You may call us at 800-531-1545.
