Overview

About the property

1 bedroom 1 bath, Sleeps 4

For the adventurous spirit, our river front cottage is nestled on the banks of the Allegheny River-- perfect for boating, floating, fishing and hunting. You will love to just sit back and watch the river roll by.

At the cottage, we offer more than just a vacation getaway. We offer the opportunity for guests to immerse themselves in nature's wonders -- to wake to the sound of songbirds, watch the eagles fly and end the day with the pop and crackle of a campfire, to feel the cool river ripples, to breathe in fresh mountain air and hunt or fish in the Allegheny National Forest. Our Riverfront Retreat is an escape from the ordinary.

About Gretta Beck

We enjoy the cold Steeler season that Pittsburgh, Pa. has to offer but after the season is over we cant wait to take some time off and escape to the riverbanks of the Allegheny. Tidioute offers the best of both worlds. Relaxed river front living which include fishing and hunting on the nearby state game lands. Plus a great place to have family and friends over for a summers day full of fun!!

Gretta Beck purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Gretta Beck chose Pennsylvania

We purchased this property mainly based on location: only a mile down the road from State Game lands, water front and Tidioute's quiet small town atmosphere.

What makes this cottage unique

The home sleeps 4 comfortably. We enjoy setting tents up down by the river for bon fires, cooking out and listening to the frogs at night. We love to see the turtles sun themselves in the morning the bank and if you are lucky enough to see baby turtles hatch from their nests buried in the yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for everything. We really appreciated the wine and chocolates. It was such a wonderful surprise, especially since we can never seem to adjust to Pennsylvania's liquor laws and all the stores were closed as we drove in!

We'd love to come back again, You have a truly lovely place.

Tidioute (tiddy-oot), is an Iroquois word meaning 'protrusion of land.' The Allegheny River makes a sharp bend here creating a near-peninsula within the river valley. Access to the Allegheny River is available from a boat launch and a 5 mile non-motorized riverside Recreation Trek both located in the heart of town. Home of the worlds' first natural 'flowing' oil well, used by Native Americans for medicinal purposes. After the discovery of oil in Titusville, Tidioute became a booming oil center and the birthplace of Standard Oil. Oil millionaires, railroads and wealth followed leaving a legacy of Victorian-era mansions. For the last 48 years; Tidioute has hosted the PA. State Championship Fishing Tournament held annually the last weekend in September.

Always awesome on the river!

  • 5 of 5

We had another great visit to the Riverfront Retreat in Tidioute! Gretta & Kevin's place is turn-key - bring your food / beverages / clothing, and everything else you could need is there for you. We loved the super-stocked kitchen and the river amenities - tubes, chairs, firewood -- everything already there for your visit! Had a chance to stop by Animalistic Chainsaw artist just outside of Corry - a wonderful day trip for Tidioute visitors! Thanks to Gretta & Kevin for another awesome getaway!

Great get-away...our favorite PA location!

  • 5 of 5

We love our weekend trips to the Riverfront Retreat. There is everything you can possible need plus the beautiful Allegheny river right outside the backdoor. Beautifully maintained home and property. Our girls (3 and 5 years old) love to explore the island in the river (the water is shallow enough) and we also explored Oil Creek State Park for a great afternoon trip. Definitely recommend this location to any family that would like to get out of the hustle bustle, but still feel pampered.
