Great Elk Viewing!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and in close proximity to a lot of wildlife lookouts and town. Elk gathered right in our backyard! We were close enough to restaurants and the visitor center. Great experience!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Had another fun and amazing trip to elk country! Had the elk in the backyard, did not have to go anywhere else to look for elk!! Grandkids enjoyed another year of the cabin. Plenty of room for our whole family to enjoy this outing. The red cozy cabin has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Look forward to our next year vacation to elk country. Thanks Carrie and Sherman for another great vacation to your cabin!

The elk are here!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Cozy Red Camp over Labor Day weekend 2017 and had a great time! No need to go to any viewing areas when the elk come to you. They were right in the yard in the evening and in the morning!! The camp is very close to Benezette and the Elk Visitor Center is not far. There was a TV but we never turned it on because we had lots to talk about when we even saw a momma black bear and three cubs about 5 miles away! It was a wonderful weekend and the Cozy Red Camp is a great place to stay!!

We were pleased with our stay at Cozy red camp.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the house with my son and daughter-in-law. The house was nice, cozy is a good name for the place. It has a good size kitchen equipped with everything you need. There is a dining area off the kitchen. The bathroom on the main floor is real nice, it has separate tub and shower, they provided towels, and wash cloths. The bedroom on the main floor was comfortable and a good size. It was also great to have a half bath in the upstairs, where there were several beds to choose from to sleep in.

We went to the area to see elk and other wildlife and were not disappointed. We saw many, many elk on our evening drives. There were some elk in the yard a house away from this one.

We also like to hike and there are thousands of state lands to do that on that are very close to the house. We also went to the Elk Visitor Center in Benezette, which is just a short drive away. It is very interesting.

The owners of the home gave us good directions to find the house, and helpful information about the area. The owners responded quickly to questions I emailed them about, and gave us their contact information in case we had questions after we arrived. We recommend this place.

Thank you.

Car: recommended

*Cozy Red Camp located in the heart of Elk Country, Medix Run, Benezette, PA. This beautiful wooded setting in Elk County is right along the Bennett Branch of the Sinnemahoning Creek. Plenty of space for outdoor activities. Sit by the fire ring with built in grill, watch the wildlife that often stop by to visit including, elk, deer, and turkey. Approximately 5 miles from Elk Visitors Center, historic Straub Brewery in St. Marys and within 40 miles of Denny's Beer Barrel & Pub (featured on Food Network). Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous is held in February. Plenty of nearby antique shops, wine shops, and historic sites.
