The place was great! Clean and provisions were great! the ONLY complaint if there is one, property too close to Rt 6. Traffic was loud and annoying. thought it would be more quiet at night by the fire. but our stay was FANTASTIC!!! would LOVE to visit and stay again.

 by Anonymous

This was a spontaneous weekend getaway. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Check in and out was very simple. We had a wonderfully relaxing time. One problem we did encounter is we have a very low car and getting into the driveway was somewhat of a difficulty due to a dip between the road and the driveway. We had to come in at a very specific angle to get in and out. Other than that everything was great.

 by Anonymous

Solitude was very clean and welcoming when we arrived! It was overall a great stay and we would recommend the solitude cabin!

 by Steve

Peaceful, cozy nice little getaway spot.

 by Hayley

Cute, peaceful getaway. Just as advertised and perfect for a weekend getaway. Would visit again!

 by Suzanne

Nice and private. Quiet and near to rail trail via car. Met our needs for our mini vacation. Water smell was a bit of a turn off but we knew that from previous comments. Place was very clean and neat.

 by Weiman

Great small cabin in Gaines. Very quiet and peaceful. Met all of our needs. We had great time in Wellsboro, the Pine Creek rail trail, and Cherry Springs (although Canadian wild fire smoke obscured most of the stars). We look forward to renting this cabin again.

 by Jessica M.

We had a great stay at Solitude. It’s an adorable, cozy cabin in a quiet, relaxing area. Everything was just as described, clean, and perfect for our visit. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks, sitting around the fire, and visiting local parks for hiking. We would definitely recommend Solitude and would come again!

 by Christa

This place was super clean. Hosts were very friendly and responsive with in a few minutes. They were accommodating and friendly! The location was perfect and right in the middle of multiple locations of where we needed to be! We will def stay here again! Thank you so much for such a wonderful, clean place to stay!

 by Mallory B.

Would highly recommend this property. It was everything our family was looking for. We wanted a quiet unplugged weekend away. We got exactly that! The cabin was immaculate and stocked with all the appliances we needed. We enjoyed lots of cabin time around the campfire. We had all meals at the cabin using the grill. Definitely will book again, thank you!

 by Brenda D.

This was an awesome place for my husband and I to spend a long weekend biking on the Pine Creek Rail Trail. Nice and quiet, but very convenient to get to!

 by Terri K.

Peaceful little gem. Very clean and enjoyed the starter package. Looking forward to returning in the fall.

 by Royden

Very nice place. Just a word to the wise if you’re going to fish Pine Creek don’t expect to get access from the property even tho it’s essentially right on the stream. The bank is way too steep to climb, but there are access points only a short drive away. Other than that we were very pleased and will be back.

 by John

Perfect spot for a couple looking to explore PA’s Grand Canyon area. Thanks you for clear instructions!

 by Michael

very nice and cozy feeling, would love to return!

 by Jennifer

We had a wonderful little weekend getaway here. The house was perfect and clean. Check in and check out instructions were clear and easy to understand. The area was extremely peaceful and close to so many outdoor activities. We would definitely book another stay here in the future!

 by Desirea B.

Great property, nice location. Many amenities!

 by Anderson P.

This place was really nice in a quiet neighborhood. Small but it was exactly as advertised. I plan on traveling back in the summer to enjoy the area some more. I would definitely stay here again!

 by Joy

Cute, Cozy little place, perfect for two and or 4 if you do not require a lot of privacy or your own space. It was perfect for my husband and I and daughter and son-in law for the weekend. The only suggestion that I could make is that the mattress on the pull out couch could be replaced with a thicker and firmer for us old people. The view was beautiful and the fireplace was a nice touch. We would rent again for sure.

 by Alyssa

This place was great! Area was perfect, around people but still felt like you were still secluded. You are close to a lot of amazing hiking trails & over look points. Just beautiful there. We did try out the local Fromes Restaurant (you have to go there really good breakfast!) Got to visit downtown Wellsboro which isn't a far drive from the place. Cute little town- if you do visit the town have to try out the The Roost Pub (so good)! Over all we had a great time, and would choose this place again. The only down side is the water was smelly which I knew from other reviews but its nothing you cant handle, so just be prepared for that. Other than that it was a great visit!

 by Ginger

Our stay was just perfect!

 by Colleen

Stayed at solitude for an extended weekend getaway with my love. We both really loved the cabin. The location was perfect for all our hiking needs, also was close to some amazing eateries. Stargazing was above and beyond what our eyes in the city life can see. We will definitely be keeping this location in mind for our next visit to Gaines. I will say what everyone else has said about the water being smelly, but it goes with the territory of using well water. Outside of that hands down we would give this place more then five stars if we could. It’s a 10!

 by Thomas F.

Clean cabin. Quiet, cozy.

You may want to advise clients to turn onto Lick Run Road off of Rt. 6. Our GPS took us to dead end of other section of Lick Run. Not a biggie but late at night it was frustrating.

But we had a great time. Good to come home after a day of hiking and enjoy the coziness and the fire pit. Money well spent!

 by Nadine

Great little place. Super cute outside and loved the fireplace inside. The water smells sulfuric, so I was really happy to see that the host provided a gallon of bottled water for drinking. We were there for business but I wish we had at least another day to actually enjoy this little place more. Can only recommend!

 by Heather

My boyfriend and I rented the cabin for the weekend and we didn't want to leave! The area was so beautiful and the cabin made us feel right at home. Everything was perfect! We are already planning on staying here again next year, but this time for a little longer.

 by Kristina H.

Our best VRBO rental yet! Place was exactly as shown. Very clean cabin and start-up supplies were very generous. Husband loved the dual grill options: gas or charcoal. Also loved using the fire pit. A stove/oven was available but we cooked ALL meals outside! Bed was extremely comfortable. Saw deer and a unique black squirrel came around a few times. No bears! While the property overlooked the creek, the creek was not easily visible through the trees; no direct creek access. But we saw lots of water while walking trails and hiking. Check in/out was simple. We will definitely book here again!

 by Austin

Clean, cozy, had everything that you could ask for except for easy river access with how steep the property is in the back. Other than that it is a great location. Would stay here again when traveling to the pine creek area.

 by Anonymous

We had a great time at Solitude. It was perfect for just the 2 of us. Great location… short drive to every place we wanted to see! It was quiet. The cabin was clean. It was all we needed for a short getaway!! The only way it could be better is if there was room for a king size bed.

 by Daric

Nice little location. Easy access to all things Pine Creek Gorge while still being pretty secluded. Take the covered wagon ride to support local folk. The Frome bakery 5 minutes away is a family run diner / bakery and the folks are really nice and the food good. I've hit a lot of diners and it is the first time my breakfast toast options all had fresh, homemade bread and not store bought. Plenty of decent places to eat in a 15-20 minute drive from this little cottage.

 by Patty R.

Beautiful and very clean. The bathroom sink took a bit of time to get warm water but kitchen and shower did not. The portable air conditioner is a bit noisy and did not cool off the bedroom very well. These are not complaints, just thoughts on possible improvements. Loved the quiet neighborhood and seeing the animals.

 by Danielle

Great stay, perfect little house!

 by Kathleen

My stay at Solitude was great! The cabin is so cute and neatly decorated. The backyard with the fire pit is super nice too and well maintained. The location puts you at about 18 minutes to downtown Wellsboro to go get some amazing food and about 25-30 minutes from Cherry Springs State Park to view the night sky. It is also very close to both Grand Canyon State Parks (20 minutes from Leonard Harrison and 10ish from Colton Point) for some great hikes. There is also a place to rent bikes/boats/tubes about 5 minutes from the cabin as well, so the location alone should be a major selling point to stay here! My favorite place to go to breakfast was Frome Acres about 4 minutes away!!

The mattress in the bedroom and pull out couch is memory foam which was comfy. They also offer amenities that you could forget at home, like coffee and filters for the coffee pot, all major cooking accessories like pots, pans, colanders, and utensils, and even some Pam Spray and vegetable oil.

 by Kelly

My partner and I stayed here for a short weekend trip to visit Cherry Springs State Park and hike throughout Potter County. The space was very clean with modern finishes. Would definitely stay here again!

 by Ed

Very nice place. Very clean and comfortable. It would be perfect if it wasn’t for the high mineral content of the tap water. But from what I have heard it’s common for the area. If I owned it I would invest in a water system to remove the odor from the water. I would still rent the cabin again.

 by Rosa

This property is adorable! Perfect for 2-4 people. We especially loved the fire pit out back and the location was far out enough where it was nice and quiet, but still had a relatively close drive to restaurants and things to do. Highly recommend to those who want to get away from the city life and relax by the mountains.

 by Carol

Went for a weekend getaway, to hike and bike ride in Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. Home was in a great location and very clean and comfortable

 by Chris

Loved my stay at Solitude.

Location is peaceful & secluded. Hiking trails are right down the road. And there are a ton of outdoor activities to do in the area.

This place has a cabin feel equipped with modern amenities. Bed was extremely comfortable. Appliances are new. Bathroom is contemporary. There is even Wi-Fi & a Smart TV should you want to stay connected. AC was also key considering it approached 90 degrees during my stay.

There is no dishwasher so bring disposable plates & silverware unless you don’t mind washing dishes. They do provide a starter pack which is nice touch.

Would definitely rent again!

 by Michelle

This is a great place to stay in a nice quiet location! The hose was great and super quick to respond. The house is brand new, super clean and comfortable.  We went myself, fiancé, and daughter to go to Cherry Springs State Park.  The drive to the park was about 20 minutes which was perfect.  We also saw the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon and went hiking which was a 10 minute drive. I would definitely recommend this house.
