Hey guys

My wife and I (and our black lab Alli) are looking to get away for a weekend in June. We are looking to rent a cabin in the Kinzua area, or around Cooks Forest.

Problem is most places online either don't allow dogs, are ridiculously priced, or are located in a group- we are looking for more of a secluded location.

Do any of you have a place you recommend or have used before? Just looking for any good leads from the locals maybe as it's hard to judge from online ads. I appreciate any info you guys have. Thanks!

Check out campers paradise in Sigel pa. Super close to cooks forest and the owners, Mike and Andrea are really nice. They have rentals from luxuary cabins with hot tubs all the way down to covered wagons and tee pee's. Give em a call and tell them what your looking for. Pets are welcome as well.

Have had my own place in the Cooks forest area for years,it is tough to find a place out of the way that is not expensive. Cherry run cabins are nice out,of the way but kind of pricey. Yes campers paradise is a nice place and not expensive. Also try pagreatoutdoors.com they have tons of listing in both areas you were talking about.

Thanks for the responses! blueridgehunter, Is your place still for rent? If it is I'd be interested if you want to send me a PM. Thanks again

This is off topic with the O.P., but has anyone ever heard form the poster with the username Mutley or something along those lines? I believe he was the one who's cabin burnt down last year and was rebuilding. Just curious as to how everything came together for him.

We just recently rented a cabin across from deer meadow campground. It was one of the tophill cabins I believe it was the sunburst cabin or something along that. Decent place 2 main bedrooms, bath, kitchen/dinette area, attached living room area with fireplace and loft with 1 queen bed and 2 small beds. Fire ring and grill outside. Real close to everything. We will go back. Oh yeah a mouse lives in the fireplace we figured that out the first night. Or should I say my wife did when she squealed and jumped on the couch, when he ran back in the hole I just plugged it up with him inside. But all in all a nice place to stay.

Try the South Branch Rentals along 321 right near Red Bridge-Kinzua Reservoir. They have several cabins, not bad priced. Only thing I'm not sure of is the pets, but I think so.

I've rented these cabins twice, there are some lower scale ones on the website.

I should add the Creekside cabin was a lot more rustic when I stayed in it. Looks like they just re-built it in 2011.
