Four of our cabins have air conditioning for your comfort in the summer, including Maple Grove Cabin, Twin Oaks Cabin, Red Bud Cabin and Sugar Pine Cottage. Sugar Pine Cottage also includes a one-person Jacuzzi tub. Other cabins have fans to circulate the air in the summer. Several have asked if we have Keurig Coffee Makers in the cabins…. Yes, we do! A Keurig is in every cabin plus a regular drip coffee maker. Our Cabin Map 2020 shows the relationship of one cabin to the other.
Entertainment in Cook Forest area includes: go-karts, bumper boats, mini-golf, water slides, horse-back riding, canoeing, kayaking and tubing plus fishing and hunting in season. The Sawmill Art Center, close by, usually has plays, musicals and festivals throughout the summer. This year is rare and because of the CoVid 19 virus, the Sawmill Art Center will not be producing plays, musicals and festivals. We are informed that they will return in full force in 2021. We, as Sawmill enthusiasts, cannot wait!!
Cook Forest State Park has over 30 miles of hiking trails and specific designated biking trails.

Lois is a very sweet and understanding person. She works with you and gets any issues resolved. Our cabin was very beautiful and clean. This our second time with Top Hill Cabins. We absolutely love the people and the atmosphere. Not to mention the location is perfect. Not far from anything. We will definitely be coming again in the near future. – Mya
This is a beautiful cabin, very roomy and clean. The setting is very private and beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay there, had a campfire every night, watched deer roaming in the morning from the large back porch, enjoyed the quiet serenity. It was everything we had hoped for in a cabin in the woods. We recommend highly. – Margaret
The absolute best camping experience ever! Everything you could possibly need is there – except – your towels. Now that is stress free camping at its best! The cabin was spotless and the gorgeous new bathroom was like a spa retreat. Beds were comfortable, the location perfect, the owners were so friendly and kind and just fabulous. I promise you a stellar camping experience in any of Top Hill Cabins lodging options. I have been going there for years and look forward to returning often. I even asked the owners if I could just move in to the cabin… it was that perfect. Kudos to Lois and Larry McFadden !!!!
Was a very relaxing & private cabin stay. The owners Larry & Lois were very friendly & accommodating. And cabin was nice & clean. I didn’t realize the cabin kitchen was fully equipped with cookware, plates, drinkware, coffee pot & toaster!! Just bring food & towels & your set!! So nice to pack light. We will definitely be revisiting.
My family and I are spread out so when looking for a place for all of us to come together and enjoy family time I came across this place. My dad and family couldn’t stop talking about the cabin and how relaxing of a weekend it was. We will continue to book the old hickory cabin every year!
About the Owners
Larry and Lois McFadden
Larry had worked for Owens-Illinois Glass Containers for 40 years starting in Streator, Illinois where he was born and raised. The McFadden’s transferred within Owens-Illinois from Rimersburg, Pennsylvania to Zanesville, Ohio and then on to Crawford, Texas and back to Cooksburg, Pennsylvania.
Then, when Larry decided to retire in 2001, the McFadden’s looked into purchasing a business in Northwest Pennsylvania for the simple reason that Lois was born and raised in NW PA. Most of Lois’s family lives in Rimersburg, Johnstown, Batavia, NY, Butler, Durham, NC and the Ft Worth, TX area.
The McFadden’s are enjoying keeping busy with renting out cabins in retirement plus the comradarie of other business owners in the Cook Forest area. Larry’s present work in the business is doing everything, including cabin maintenance and renovations! Lois does help with reservations, marketing and advertising.
