Why Choose Hide-A-Way?

Top Notch Amenities

Who wants to vacation without amenities?  At Hide-A-Way, all of our cottages come fully furnished and most are equipped with premium satellite TV,  private Wi-Fi, air conditioning, private hot tubs, wood burning fireplaces, and private outdoor fire pit areas.  Being surrounded by nature doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice the comforts of your own home or the luxuries of being on vacation!

Personal Touch

As a small family owned and operated business, we believe in treating our guests as friends instead of faceless numbers.  To accomplish this, we begin by asking our guests to call our office to make their reservations.  This allows us to speak with every guest and begin building a relationship, while eliminating any confusion about check-in procedures and giving us the ability to answer any questions along the way!

Hiking Without Driving

Are you an avid hiker but hate having to drive to a trail?  Another great perk to staying at Hide-A-Way is that you can hike without getting into your car!  With State Forest surrounding our 60 acres of private property, you can literally lace up your hiking shoes and head out into the wilderness.

Unique History

Have you read our About Us page?  If you have, you already know that Hide-A-Way has a long history.  With our family home/office built in 1876, Pop Krill’s stone fireplace in the front lawn, and The Legend of Slyhoff’s Grave in the corner of the field, it’s safe to say we’ve got character!  Plus, we’re a short drive from the historic town of Brookville!


Thanks to our remote location, we have the advantage of not having light pollution.  This extreme darkness provides our guests with the ideal conditions for stargazing!  If you enjoy snuggling on a blanket under the stars or setting up a telescope to get a closer look at the Milky Way, we’re the perfect spot for you!

Unmatched Privacy

While others advertise privacy, we actually offer it!  Hide-A-Way Cottages sits on almost 60 acres of private property that is surrounded by Clear Creek State Forest.  Plus, our cottages sit separate from one another providing ultimate privacy.  Don’t worry though, all of this privacy doesn’t mean you’re far from Activities.  We’re only 3 miles from the Clarion river and a short drive to the fun that Clear Creek State Park and Cook Forest have to offer!

"We would like everyone to know that Hide-A-Way Cottages is the greatest! We've never had such exceptional service and understanding from any other place we've stayed.

Carol & Dan Burtner

( Cottage #10 )

"We could not have enjoyed our stay at Hide-A-Way more! The peace and quiet, beautiful setting, and the kindness of the host were incomparable! Cottage 9 offered us the accommodation and serenity we needed so badly. We both work in human services professions, and a visit to Hide-A-Way helped to rejuvenate and refresh our minds and spirits. We are recommending Hide-A-Way as often as we get the opportunity! Thank you so much! We hope to join you again sometime in the fall!"

The Rev. Geoffrey and Cheryl Wild

( Grove City, PA )

"My fiancé and I recently spent a blissful, peaceful week at Hide-A-Way Cottage #9. It was the perfect place for two! Immaculate cabin and everything you could possibly want or need. We were close to Clear Creek State Park and Historic Brookville so were able to get some sightseeing in. But mostly, it was spending time in and around the cabin that was truly a renewing and relaxing experience for both of us! We’ll definitely be telling everyone about Hide-A-Way and will be back for sure!"
