Cedarwood Lodge is a mountain cabin on eight forested acres surrounded by the Moshannon State Forest with access to thousands of acres for exploring nature directly from the grounds. Only 4 miles off PA I-80, Exit 111, the cabin provides easy access to Parker Dam and S.B. Elliot state parks and the nearby Elk Herd (Rocky Mountain elk reintroduced in 1913 have prospered) and Elk Scenic Drive. Don't miss the spectacular Mountain Laurel Driving Tour to view the PA State Flower that proliferates throughout the mountain forests each spring.
The Lodge is completely equipped including linens, all kitchen needs, microwave, gas cook stove and gas grill, coffee maker, toaster, TV/VCR/DVD (no TV reception), phone, wood burning stove/fireplace, and full bath with tub and shower.
Homemade bread, and sweet rolls or muffins are provided for your first morning's breakfast. Coffee and tea provided.
Deer, turkey, foxes, and an occasional bear can be observed making their way past the Lodge. Enjoy dark skies with easy access to the 'middle of nowhere' - just a 15 minute drive (12 miles) to Clearfield or 20 minute drive to DuBois.
It is easily accessible from the main highway, yet provides privacy and a feeling of seclusion. The Lodge is a great place for family get-togethers, a romantic get-away for two, or a gathering of friends.
Please disregard the statement under each review, "During this stay the property was under previous owner or management." This statement was placed there by HomeAway when a reservation service was used for 2 weeks recently. Cedarwood Lodge has had the same owner, who also manages the property, since 1992. There have been no changes in ownership or management. I have asked HomeAway to remove the disclaimer but so far, the statement - although inaccurate - has remained.

'We wanted to renew our friendships, enjoy nature, and escape the hustle and bustle of life. We wanted to laugh and talk late into the night. Here at Cedarwood, it all happened.' Barb, Ruth, and Diane from Evans City, PA
