About Chris Currie

I am an educational program development consultant and my wife edits our community newspaper. We live with our three children near Washington, D.C.

Chris Currie purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Chris Currie chose Pennsylvania

The Trouthouse is our vacation home, which we are pleased to share with you when we are not staying there. I designed the cabin and guest house to be our dream get-away, and hope that it will be yours, as well.

What makes this cabin unique

Today it is almost impossible to find a modern vacation home right on top of a stream bank, due to flood regulations. We were able to build our new cabin on piers on the site of an older cabin that was razed. As a result, you can dine on the back deck overlooking the stream as well as fall asleep at night listening to its music.

Comfortably Rustic

  • 4 of 5

We had no disappointments with the property. It is well maintained, was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was large with plenty of room for preparing meals. The guest house is a very nice touch, offering additional sleeping space and privacy. The property itself is very nice, with the sound of a running stream directly outside the cabin providing a relaxing atmosphere.

The owner was very responsive to inquiries, and the instructions provided with the rental in terms of access and operating the mechanicals were very detailed.

Nearby, the Oil City and Titusville Railroad provided a nice ride into Oil Creek State Park, which is beautiful and historic. 2 Mile Run County Park is also very nice. If you like the outdoors, there is plenty to do.

A very relaxing week.

  • 4 of 5

The owners are very nice and easy to communicate with. The caretakers are very responsive and able. The wood burning stove kept the dampness out and the cabin toasty. Everything you need is there and available to you. We are a group of senior citizens and found the spiral staircase unpleasant with the 3 bedrooms upstairs and 2 bathrooms downstairs. Fortunately the guesthouse has a bedroom and bathroom that can be used. I would highly recommend this cabin to young families!

This was our second time at the Trouthouse. It won't be our last ! The owners made some improvements since our last visit , adding a deck and new parking . It really is a hidden gem . Great location on a stream , the kids had a blast playing outside! The inside of the cottage is great , with a nice kitchen and multiple bathrooms! Even the bedding they provide is great! Wonderful cottage, owner is great to deal with, book your trip now !

Good value, but too small for large groups

  • 4 of 5

Our family, 10 members residing from PA to AZ to CA and aged 15 to 85, spent a week at the Trout house. We adapted to the close quarters, minimal internet and fewer bathrooms within a couple of days. Although there are sleeping accomodations for more than 10 people, keep in mind there are really only 4 bedrooms, so large groups will be sharing space. Once we were settled in, we enjoyed the streams for exploring and fishing, local hiking trails, cooking and baking in the well-equipped kitchen, and campfire evenings. I would recommend groups of 10 or more look for a larger space, but we did manage to have fun. Leonardo's subs in Franklin is a must!

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

Was our base camp for daughters wedding and everything was perfect. The kids enjoyed fishing and swimming in the stream. Had issues with the satellite TV but wasn't missed. The newlyweds enjoyed the little cabin as there honeymoon suite so they could have some private time away from the kids. Hope to make it an annual trip and will definitely be checking into the Trouthouse again.
