What our guests are saying about Vista Lodge


We had a wonderful weekend getaway. Hiked Ricketts Glen and enjoyed the cabin. Well equipped and charming.
Date of arrival – August 18, 2023


Super clean and tidy. Very nice cabin and perfect for the area!
Date of arrival – July 23, 2023


We stayed here while hiking at Rickett’s Glen State Park and World’s End State Park. It was very clean, quiet, and nice. The kitchen had everything we needed, just not many extras which was fine. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Date of arrival – May 19, 2023


The house and grounds are immaculate and the house is furnished so nicely. It had everything we needed and it was actually bigger inside than I thought it would be. The firepit, picnic area as well as the grounds were beautifully landscaped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.


This was a fantastic property, especially in the age of COVID-19. I had a true “contactless” experience (but I still felt like the owners were available if I needed them), and the place was cute, functional, and spotless. It was small but had absolutely everything I needed. The location was great, too, with a grocery store and restaurants nearby and not far from covered bridges and waterfalls. I will stay at this property again!


Our stay was absolutely amazing! Building these tiny homes was so smart and is so much nicer than the other rentable options in the area! Perfect size for us to relax after hiking. Loved the patio and picnic tables. We will definitely be coming back!


We loved our stay the lodge was just right with the rustic country decor. The mattress was extremely comfortable; I had the best night sleep on it. We will definitely be staying again.


My stay at Vista Lodge was perfect. The small home feel and cleanliness was unbeatable. The bathroom was large and the bed was comfortable. I will definitely stay again.


We really enjoy our stay and will be a back. We just love the cottages and the location of being in the middle of nowhere. The downtime for us is really important.


Very clean, comfy beds, nice showers, perfect space for 2-4 people. We were there to visit family in Bloomsburg. Not a bad drive to Ricketts Glen.  There’s a market close that’s convenient to make easy meals in the cabin. We loved it and will be back.


Second time staying here went to this area to hike Worlds End Trails and Ricketts Glenn trails . Is such a wonderful place to come back to after a long hike is like a home away from home.


The property is advertised with up to date photos. Everything was clean and didn’t need a thing. The property had everything: blankets, pillows, dishes, utensils, coffee maker, extra towels and sheets etc. I also wanted to say thank you to the housekeeper who cleaned prior to our arrival everything looked great. Also had follow up emails to make sure we were happy with our stay.


Will have to say that it was an awesome place!


Vista Lodge is a great place to stay. We spent two nights here for a hiking trip and were surprised by the cleanliness of the place. The property felt very safe and quiet. Would recommend to anyone looking for a little get away! Location is great as it is close to Bloomsburg or to hiking at Ricketts Glen. Lots to do around the area.

My wife and I and our Golden Retriever stayed just one night but it was probably the nicest cabin style place we stayed in memory. It was very clean, well maintained and all amenities listed were provided. Comfortable and hassle free. Would definitely stay again.

Vista Lodge has beautiful accommodations. I give it a top rating and will return very soon.

Every thing went very well. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Everything was like new and very clean. We plan on staying here every time we are in the area.  I don’t know how you can make it any better. Keep up the good work.


I had a great time staying at the lodge, everything was beautiful and brand new! I appreciated the attention to detail and everything was overall great!! Way more than I had expected for such a fair price. Definitely would give 5 stars and hope to come back in the summer.
I definitely loved that there were menus and brochures on the table – we actually ended up ordering food from one of the restaurants nearby. I thought that was convenient being that I’m not familiar with the area. I also thought the location was great, very quiet and not too far from Ricketts or other local places.


My family and I had an amazing stay at Vista Lodge! They are beautifully designed and decorated. The common living area is a great place for the family to hang out after a long hike at Ricketts Glen. The shower came stocked with a soap, shampoo, and conditioner dispenser which was very convenient. The lodges are situated in a picturesque setting in a corn field with mountains all around. They are conveniently located about 15 minutes north of Bloomsburg and 15 minutes south of Ricketts Glen. If visiting Benton, Pa I recommend you take advantage of the proximity of Vista Lodge to visit a few places: Turkey Hill Brewing Company and Bloomin’ Bagels in Bloomsburg, The Old Filling Station for breakfast in Benton, and The Red Scoop for ice cream near Ricketts Glen.

Again, this was an amazing stay and I would highly recommend Vista Lodge!!


What a wonderful place! The beds were comfortable, the décor was charming, everything was clean and well maintained (looks like new)! I cannot think of anything that I would change. Keep up the good work!


Vista Lodge was immaculate, modern, and comfortable. Perfect space to get out of the city and enjoy a quiet weekend in the country. I definitely recommend Vista Lodge!


It is evident the owners take pride in their product. It was comfortable and very clean. We were exhausted from hiking all day and slept like babies!

I would stay here again! The town next door was only 2 miles away with a place to eat: breakfast, subs and pizza.

There were also other places in the area to buy some groceries or just to grab a beer. Very short drive to Ricketts Glen State Park.

Very convenient. Impressed with the standard of the cabin! We would definitely stay here again! Thank you! I would give this place a 5 out of 5!


This cabin was perfect for a quick getaway!

It was super clean, close to a couple restaurants, and about 20 mins from Ricketts Glen.

Would definitely stay here if we’re ever in the area again!


We had a great experience at Vista Lodge! It was newly built and extremely clean.

Check in was extremely easy and convenient.

It had everything we needed for our weekend trip to visit Rickett’s Glen!


A sweet little house with a lot of thoughtful touches. Clean and tidy! Loved it there! Didn’t want to leave!

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Vista Lodge.  We were visiting Rickett’s Glen and thankfully I found your lodges.  It was such a great experience – and much better than a regular hotel.  The mini-house concept was a lot of fun.  The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
If we’re ever in the area again, we’ll be sure to make a return visit

Excellent 5 night stay. Vista Lodge is very well designed (attention to detail) and decorated. Really appreciated the concrete drive and parking area. Looking forward to staying there again in the future.

Small cabin-big vacation!!
The place is very quaint and cute! I very much enjoyed the shower experience as the pressure and heat were very relaxing!
The equipment provided in kitchen were a great bonus!
Microwave was very easy to use.
Overall, pleasant experience!

The place is great worth much more then what I paid. Close drive to Ricketts Glen State Park has the cabin feel, but brand new and super clean, glamping instead of camping! Felt cozy as soon as I walked in the door, great views of the mountains out front while sipping morning coffee! A few things to do in downtown but mostly spent time at the park.

Just wanted to say thanks for the help and for a great stay at your place. It was the perfect lodging for my trip.

Bill M.

Thank you for making our trip to Pennsylvania so nice!  The room was perfect.

Dennis & Kathy

just wanted to tell you what a GREAT place!  We were in town for a funeral and the location and the lodge it self was everything we could have asked for and more.  MUCH better than a hotel room, the entire process was efficient & seamless.

I have just returned home after my visit to Benton. I wanted to drop you a line concerning my stay. The Lodge was beautiful and the workmanship was as good as I’ve seen. There were more amenities than I expected. I brought some of my family I was visiting to have a look. Thank you for the most pleasant and comfortable stay.
