My stay started off great because the dates were both Fall Foliage and weather dependent for a photography trip during Rutting Season. The owners penciled me in until the final dates were chosen based on the critical criteria. Then, my dates had to be start a day later, and again they were very understanding and accommodating. They even kept an eye on the changing colors - reporting the progress. I moved the trip up by a full week based on the info they gave me (it worked out perfectly.)
The cabin I was assigned was neat and clean. The microwave and refrigerator worked beautifully for my needs (lots of back-roading for hours every day means I have to prepare lunches to take along.)
The location of the cabins was great - easy proximity to Hwys 6, 44/144, 872, 120 & 555, and most of the vistas, overlooks, and the State Parks. The city of Coudersport has a good variety of restaurants, gas stations, and some produce stores. My itinerary included several trips to Benezette for photographing the Elk herds. It was the farthest distance, taking only 1-1/2 hours (which is a normal drive-time for any destination in the PA Wilds.)
On site management is terrific (as were the owners). Cindy went out of her way to show interest in my plans and experiences, and to assist me with a couple of problems unrelated to the Cabins.
Would I stay here again? In a heart beat!
