introduces a new

Trailside vacation rental in the Pine Creek Valley

2021 brought many changes to Canyon Country Cottages.  We sold our Cedar Run home, our Creekside Cottage rental and moved into our Ansonia Trailside Cottage to downsize our lives and semi-retire.  We finished major renovations on our cabin next door to create "The Vogel Nest"... a lovely cottage for two.  Michelle, now retired from her speech pathology career, has helped make this cottage our best ever.  We live next door to provide you with great service.  There's no middle man, agency or property manager.  As always...we hope your visit with us is just what you're looking for.

Michelle and Jim Vogel say "Hi" from Leonard Harrison State Park

We're perfectly located...

for outdoor lovers in the heart of scenic "PA Wilds".  The Vogel Nest is a clean, comfortable, cottage for two at the northern end of the PA Grand Canyon.

No need to drive to the 62+ mile long Pine Creek Rail's 100 yards away!

Our cottage is a mile from the big Meadows Canoe Access to Pine Creek.

Pine Creek Outfitters is less than 2 miles away.

Big Meadows Fly shop is one mile away.

Less than 2 miles from the cottage there's a 3.3 mile delayed harvest "Keystone Select" section on Pine Creek.

For hikers and backpackers, the northern terminus of the 30 mile West Rim Trail is less than 2 miles from the cottage.

Colton Point and Leonard Harrison State Parks are less than 7 miles from the Vogel Nest.

Historic Wellsboro is about 9 miles away.

Ride hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails right from the cottage.

Along with muskrat and beaver, you'll find nesting bald eagles, herons, kingfishers, ducks and geese in the area.  It's a birder's paradise!
