Tucked away on a mountaintop in central Pennsylvania on 24 private acres sits, North Star Cabin at Oak Mountain Hideaway. This private cabin offers spectacular views of fields and woodlands. Deer are often grazing in the fields as well as turkey and a multitude of birds sing from dawn until dusk. The night sky is dark with clear views of billions of stars and the Milky Way spans the heavens. We're close to Penn State, dozens of hiking trails, the Quehanna Wilds and a wild Elk herd.
This luxurious cabin is a work of art! Ed, co-owner and my husband, who also built our home, renovated this former hunting cabin which we lived in while building our home next door. He custom placed each unique piece of wood and other features and has created a masterpiece for you to enjoy! There are surprises to be found!
The cabin played a prominent role in the movie, Generational Sins. It was the boyhood home of one of the characters and the film and is featured throughout the film. We have a copy, so you can watch it during your stay! Many of our guests particularly enjoyed watching it 'on location'!
The cabin has one bedroom, one bathroom w/shower, a kitchen and a great room with a futon and a couch, so it sleeps 4-5 guests. The cabin is equipped with most everything you should need. It has a fully stocked kitchen with dinnerware, pots and pans, utensils and cookware. We provide a variety of breakfast items, such as coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, cereal, muffins, and even pancake mix, but you can bring whatever you like to cook. There is a gas stove, refrigerator, sink, microwave, toaster, blender, and a coffee maker.
Sheets, blankets, towels, and toiletries are included. We also provide an iron and a blow dryer.
For indoor fun we have several board games, cards, puzzles and books, coloring books, and a TV for watching DVD movies. There is no television reception or WiFi, but we have very good Verizon service.
The front porch has a couple of rocking chairs and a swing for relaxing outdoors and watching the wildlife. There is an outdoor campfire ring and a grill rack and an outdoor dining area. There are many miles of hiking trails within a short drive and miles and miles of wilderness to explore. Some of the best fishing streams in Pennsylvania are only a short distance away and if you like paddling, we are only one mile from the West Branch Susquehanna river. We offer a shuttle service if you bring your own boats and there is a local outfitter if you need to rent equipment. Winter and summer outdoor activities are endless!
At our home, which is next door, we host house concerts from time to time. If you're lucky enough to be staying when we are having a show, you can walk next door to enjoy it! You pay at the door. Our schedule is listed on our website.
The cabin is heated in the winter and has AC for the summer months. Parking is very close to the entrance for easy unloading. There is a keypad entry.
Now that you know what we have to offer, won't you come and stay a while in the North Star Cabin at Oak Mountain Hideaway? We know you'll enjoy yourself in what we like to call, our Ultimate Restination in the Pennsylvania Wilds!
What we love about the area is that there are no roads, highway noise, light pollution or even neighbors. We are completely secluded and surrounded by the natural environment. We are only a few miles from a wild elk herd and State Game Lands. Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts will see and hear many common species including bluebirds, blue jays, robins, chickadees, mourning doves and many more including the brown thrasher, the woodcock, various owls, turkey, hawks, and the whippoorwill. We have even seen northern harriers and bald eagles. Deer are plentiful and at night you'll hear coyotes howl. Black bear make an appearance from time to time, but rarely. The nearby Quehanna Wilds is a wonderland for hikers, backpackers, mountain bikers, bird watchers, hunters and fishermen. There are over 48,000 acres in this wilderness which is part of two state forest natural areas. Here you can pick wild blueberries in late summer and cross country ski in the winter months. We are also near the West Branch of the Susquehanna River on which you can canoe or kayak. Ask about a shuttle service. Unplug and unwind at the Ultimate Restination in the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds!
