“Just like family”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

My husband and I have been staying at the Lodge for over six years now, and we always go back. Frank and Sue are just like family-and they couldn't treat us any better! The Lodge has direct access to the Allegheny Forest ATV system which for us is just wonderful, because we do not have to trailer our units and we know they are safe at the Lodge. Frank is firm and clear about the rules and we wouldn't have it any other way. He and Sue are fun to be around and they are the people to see to tell you where the best places are to visit and eat. They have always gone out of their way to make us comfortable and we value their friendship. We almost always travel with a lot of friends, taking up the white building and some of the red brick building-and even some have tented-where we enjoy the night time camp fire!!!

Room Tip: They even have a large family room under the White building for those who like to stay together!

We've stayed at the hotel many times over the years and it's our home away from home. It has great ATV and snowmobiling access and wonderful hospitality. Clean rooms available include a choice of 2 doubles or 2 twins, some with A/C, some non-smoking, some for pet owners. Linens are fresh each day. Each room has a microwave, fridge and satelite T.V. It has campground available. Some with power and others are primitive style. Each sight has a picnic table and fire ring with gravel pads for parking. Showerhouse available for campers. There is beautiful scenery on the property, with direct access to ATV and snowmobile trails in the Allegheny National Forest. Frank and Sue are great with offering help with trail maps, restaurants, and sites to see. There is a lot to do in the forest...fish, hunt, ATV, snowmobiling or sightseeing.....just ask Frank and Sue for help in planing your stay. Recommended for the outdoor-style family.

My friend and I who typically try to tent camp in the fall of the year were not having success at finding a campground in the Allegheny Natl Forest where the facilities would be open for use (i.e. toilets/showers). After checking with several cabin rental places and getting no response, I checked into the Forest Lodge. Frank, the proprietor, contacted me 2 days prior to confirm our arrival. Also advised me that he probably would not be there but would leave key in room. Room was nice. Had a microwave, small fridge, Direct TV. Mattresses were firm, sheets clean. This is a small hotel (8 rooms) and we were the only customers for the weekend. Frank and Sue did all they could to make us comfortable and gave us several restaurant and sightseeing suggestions. We took a walk thru the campground and tho it is on a hillside, the parking pads were level. Several with electric. Several primitive. I don't know when William W wrote his review but I didn't get any indication that the owner was rude and property was dirty. If I were to visit this area again, I would have no problem staying here again.

The owner is rude to say the least and the place is a mess. Dirty and not maintained at all.
The "campground" Is barely a campground. It is more like a cliff with goat trails cut into it.
The rates are absurd for the facilities and there is a charge for EVERYTHING! I am surprised the owner does not charge by the toilet flush. If he reads this review, he might.
Also for every imaginable charge they can think of there is a rule with a fine.

Room Tip: Go to the Microtel
