The upgrade is awesome.

"Everything is great"

Just wish the Dish remote would work the tv. Having 2 remotes is a pain in the neck.

"Cabin was great"

by Dylan


The cabin was great. We had a terrific time and particularly enjoyed the fireplace.

We did have a little mouse roommate, however. We attempted to catch him, but were unsuccessful! We left the traps behind for future attempts.

"Cabin is great"

by Randy & Mary Jo


The cabin is great and so comfy. Back yard is the highlight of the camp. You can sit and watch wildlife day and night. The only thing I would suggest to the owners is a railing to help get down the back porch steps.

We love Blue Spruce!! From the moment we walked in the door, and throughout the week it felt like home. We especially appreciated how clean it is, and how clean it is, and how beautiful Cook Forest area can't be beat anywhere!!

"We have been coming"

by Elizabeth


We have been coming to Cook Forest for 18 years, but this was our first time to stay with you. Very much enjoyed the clean ,and comfy cabin ,and loved being so close to our favorite trails ,and the Sawmill Center. Really appreciated being able to bring our dog Ivy Joy along on this trip. Thank you for allowing well behaved pets!!!

by Barb and Patrick


We've had a wonderful "get away" time at Top Hill. The Blue Spruce Cabin was very clean, comfortable, and nice to come home to; after hiking in the forest all day. Loved the spacious tree-ed clearing around the cabin. We could hear the wind in the trees. We look forward to staying in Blue Spruce next year. Beds and furniture very comfortable. Nice bathrooms! P.S Will bring a rescue Westie next year.

by Victor, Patty, Checky


Our stay was great! The cabin was very cozy and this fireplace was wonderful. Also thanks for allowing our dog "Checkers" for the stay. We plan to come back next year to enjoy the woods again! P.s. Very clean!!

by Kirk, Beth, and William


Fourth stay at Blue Spruce. Great time as always! Looking forward to make reservations for the winter time. The hardest part of staying here is leaving. See you soon.

by Darrell and Darlene


My dad and I come to Top Hill Cabins every Spring and Fall. We usually stay at Sugar Pine, but it was already reserved. We are so happy with Blue Spruce, thought. I think it was divine intervention, though, as we had intermittent rain all weekend. I also had a bed of my own, too. Last night we had a fire in the fireplace, watching TV, eating ice cream, and I asked my dad where else can you have such bliss? Oh, by the way, our rescue dog, Toby, who travels with us, gives "four paws up!". Can't wait to return again.

by Sam and Ryan


Thank you for a wonderful cozy cabin! We had a fantastic time filled with plenty of shenanigans and tom foolery! definitely want to return for more! Keep up the great work.

by Jeffrey, Katherine, and Coco


Got here on time - love this cabin - first staying in this one. We are here to relax - and we have our dog coco with us. She is blind now and is loving this cabin. Thank you for allowing her stay too. We will leave dice this time in table by TV. We love Yahtzee it is our tradition to leave something!

by Kirk, Beth, and William


Second Stay here- Great time again. Peace and quite in a beautiful secluded cabin. Our grandson loves the bunk bed. We will see you again Blue Spruce!

by Tessa and Tim Washington, DC


A perfect way to round out 2014! Thank you, Lois and Larry for such a cozy accommodation. A hike,time by the fire, and a comfortable reprieve from the snow will make this a stay to remember. Blessings for 2015

by Jo, Chris, Beth Erie PA


Another awesome fall weekend in The Forest. Cool weather, a roaring fire and good friends. A nice change of pace from the draughty old castle we call home. The flight into JFK was dreadful and boring but the drive across Penna was lovely, Sir William and Sir Glenn arrives a day ahead and readied the forest for out arrival. We attended a masquerade party at a local pub and it was great fun! Thanks for another lovely weekend! See you in the summer.

by W. Greg, Alana, Jensen , and Bilbo


My wife and I have been coming to Cook Forest for years now. This is our 2nd year and we stayed at Douglas Fir in 2012 and brought our cat "Bilbo" along too. We love the fact that not only are the "pet friendly" but also allows cats. Most places that claim to be pet friendly usually just mean dogs. Its great because Bilbo is a part of out family. This time around we brought out 16 month old son and Bilbo. Bilbo again loves his time and out son loves his time too. We enjoyed hiking in Cook Forest (fire tower, forest cathedral, logging roads, ect) and clear creek. We can't hike as much as we usually do having a toddler but what hiking we did was awesome. We spent some time at Double Diamond Deer Ranch and Farmers Inn. We also went to Paul's Pumpkin Patch and hit up a few stores. We ended last night at Trails End. We will cherish the memories we made during this trip, being our sons first time. We look forward to returning to Cook Forest and Top Hill for many years to come. We hope that out son and any other children we may have will bring their kids up here too. Thanks again! Be on the lookout for Bigfoot! No sightings this time around but we know he's out there! ~Not all who wonder are lost~

by Jacob, Travis, and Mark


2nd year at Top Hill Cabins was a smashing success. Great atmosphere as always. Went to a few antique shops in the area for the heck of it. Took forever and a day to get a fire going, almost gave up. Oh well it was a wet summer and we prevailed. Can't wait for next year, will be booking the stay soon. Need to remember helmets to protect us from the bombardment of acorns next time.

by Carrie B, New York


“Warm, comfortable...absolutely awesome”

Spent last weekend in the Blue Spruce cabin - it was awesome!!! Very clean, comfortable and accommodating. Never having been to Cook Forest before I did research on the internet and stumbled on Top Hill Cabins. The cabin photos were 100% accurate. We chose to stay here because the season didn't end on October 15th like so many other places and we could bring our dog. Larry and Lois were awesome and made check-in easy and made us feel right at home. Would highly recommend Top Hill cabins to anyone and will definately return in the future. Thank you!!

by Steve & Kris, Natrona Heights, PA


First time here. We loved the silence and all the snow. We are thinking of moving here. The people are nice and we like the mountains. See ya soon!

by Larry


Been here a lot of times. Love this place, great comfort away from the city "Bellevue." Brought friends in March 2002. It is just great to get away and enjoy the forest. Did not come here to watch TV. Just wanted to enjoy the fireplace and all the silence.

by Mark, Amy, Rosemary from Pgh, PA


Our first time staying here at the cabins. They were great, clean, nice to have all the kitchen ware here. The indoor fireplace was nice & toasty even with 5 degree weather. Saw some deer in the yard and also saw some elk on our drives. Would love to come back in the summer!

by Pat & Terry


A great stay as always! This was my husband's first stay at Top Hill and my sixth! It has always been "just us girls" before! We will be back!

by John & TJ


Second time here. We had more fun this time than the last time. We broke the record for wood. My husband loves to build "FIRE." We will be back!

by Sue & Dale, Zelienople, PA


What a wonderful way to spend my Birthday! We had a very relaxing, romantic time and would love to come back. Everything was very cozy and clean. We used the spare pillows from the bunk as throw pillows on the couch to make it more comfortable! For some reason the furnace went out both mornings and we woke to a chilly 54 degrees! Brrr! All-n-all a GREAT weekend!

by Brady from Painesville, OH


Second time at Top Hill Cabins. We love this Blue Spruce Cabin! Hope to back next Thanksgiving! We cooked our Thanksgiving feast here and it was the best! Suggestions: Small lamp on bedroom side tables; Big throw pillows on couch as the back is uncomfortable. Nice and clean. Wonderful fireplace. We love it here in the forest. God Bless --

by Hannah & Dan from Flemington, NJ


Had a wonderful time here! Will definitely be back. Thanks for the very clean cabin! Hope to be seeing you soon!

by John & TJ from Pgh, PA


Had a wonderful time, only hectic thing was keeping 2 fires burning at once. We brought our lab, Sunshine, and she really enjoyed it. We saw 6 deer running at night. Already booked for a week in Feb. See you soon.

by Adam, Evie & Layla from Severn, MD


This was our first time here and we loved it! We enjoyed a canoe ride and fishing. Also we spotted about 15 deer in the woods behind the cabin one night! Loved the cozy, clean cabin. Hope to be back again someday!

by Kozar Boys


Cook Forest area is always a great place to go to get away from it all! Time seems to go so fast down here having fun & laughing with the boys. It's still peaceful as always. Just the great outdoors! See ya again next year.

by Anonymous


Our stay here was great. Cabin was very clean & homey. Today we went on a canoe ride. We went in a Portland Mills and was to get off at Belltown. It was a 5 hour ride to get to Arroyo Bridge and that did not even bring us half way to Belltown. Thank God for the friendly people around here who gave us food and a ride. Total mess! Saturday was a better day when we rode the horses at the Silver Stallion Stables.

by Janet & Lisa


We've stayed here many times and we love it here! Saw almost 20 deer in 2 days! We will be back! Thank you!

"Blue Spruce Cabin"

by Journal at The Farmer's Inn


This is just one of the MANY cabins that are available in the area, as well as campgrounds where you can pitch a tent or set up your camper. They have 14 cabins to choose from here. They are all furnished and ready to go. All have satellite TVs and some have air conditioning. They all have microwaves, tables, chairs, beds, stove, sinks, bathrooms, showers, utensils, etc. So all you really need to bring is yourself, some towels, clothes, etc. They even have fire rings out back of each cabin with picnic tables.

by Greg & Kelly, Plum, PA


First time here, very relaxing. Great Cabin. Also loved how close the Bar was! No D.U.I.'s here! Would have loved to see more wildlife, only saw 4 deer, 5 squirrels, 10 chipmunks, crows. No bear, maybe next time. Can't wait to come back!

by Michael & Debbie, State College, PA


We very much enjoyed our stay here. Thank you for stocking this lovely cabin with much needed essentials. The hiking is wonderful around here as is the food. Everyone at the places we have been are very warm and helpful! We hope to come back and will spread the good word about Top Hill Cabins!

by Kathryn & Matthew from Dunbar, PA


This is our first trip to Top Hill Cabins as well as our first trip to Cook Forest! The Blue Spruce Cabin was a cute & cozy stay. I loved the ice in the freezer seeing as how our first day here was 90 some degrees. And, the cable tv kept us entertained during the rainy nights. I am sure this won't be our last stay here at Top Hill Cabins!

by Stephanie, Michaela, Mariah, Makenzie from Saltsburg, PA


This was our first stay at Top Hill Cabins. We enjoyed every bit of it! Cabin was cozy, clean and peaceful. Thank you for a relaxing getaway! We will be back!

by Abner, Mary Jane from Ephrata, PA


Our first stay here. Thank you for a clean cabin! We enjoyed our vacation...

"5th stay"

by Alonzo, Drew, Susan and Norma


This was our 5th time staying at Top Hill Cabins. It was our 3rd time staying at this cabin. We really enjoy the fireplace. This was our first time being at your cabins when it was snowing and snow on the ground. We have been up here for every season. It is just amazing to be up here for all the different seasons. Always something different. We always hate to leave. We are already talking about staying at your new cabin. We will be back. Keep up the good work. P.S. our last night here we kept the fire going all night!

"Very clean!"

by Mike & Colleen, Cleveland, OH


"Very Clean" -- Very first thought when we walked in. First night -- made fire, relaxed and read guest registers. Got in about 7:00 ish, unpacked & just enjoyed the Fireplace!! Thank you for the box of matches, forgot starter log, made fire from scratch. Thanks for the firewood. Looking forward to hiking in the morning and staying. Enjoying every second so far!! Hope to get out here more than once this year!! Thank you for ice in freezer and spotless kitchen!


by Cory, Megan, Chase


Thanks for a fun, relaxing weekend!

"Thank you!"

by The Kriebels, Parker, PA


Thank you, McFadden's! This was a very relaxing weekend and the fireplace made it so cozy. This cabin offered everything we needed & more. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to come back in the summer and bring our grandchildren.

"Best weekend"

by Judy, Rimersburg, PA


This was the best weekend Ik've had in a long time. I will be back (many times). It was wonderful!!

"Loved it!"

by Peter & Vickie, East Brady, PA


Our first stay here and we loved it. Very relaxing, homey feel here. The cabin is great. We went cross country skiing and had a great weekend. Thanks so much!

"4th visit!"

by Wendy & John


This was our 4th visit to Top Hill Cabins. We came for my 34th birthday. We had a good time, just relaxing. We went to Clear Creek -- very nice with all the now. The low temps were below zero!! We kept warm in the cabin with the fire. Thanks again for a great weekend.

"Always the Best!"

by Pat & Georgiana


Once again our stay at Top Hill Cabins has been everything we hoped for -- quiet, peaceful, relaxing! The light snowfall -- and cold wind -- made us appreciate the nice cozy fires even more than usual! Coming here with friends to celebrate my birthday has now become an "official" tradition. This is our 3rd January stay! While we have enjoyed coming in the fall also, this is the best! Thank you so much for providing a comfortable, clean, secure get-away spot for our "girls" weekends!
