About the property

Quaint waterfront cabin, with a view and calm to put you in awe.

Cot N Munch is located on one of the best trout fishing streams on the East Coast, and located between Lewisburg and State College. This is on stocked water and you will have the usual on and off flow of passing fisherman, but when they leave, you get to stay.

Kitchen includes stove refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, pots, pans and utensils. We supply heavy duty paper place settings, saving water use and work for you. Sleeping arrangements consist of a private downstairs queen bed. Upstairs is a semi-private double and two single beds. More than enough room to accommodate up to 6 people. The cabin's "bathroom" is fitted with an eco friendly composting toilet, and an old fashioned pitcher and bowl for quick wash-ups. Just a few steps from the cabin is the shower house. In this building you will find two showers as shown in the pictures, with a dressing room. Also in this building is a double bowl sink where you can gather water for cooking, washing your dishes in the provided basins, or cleaning your catch from the creek. If you are feeling like a real pioneer, feel free to use the outhouse! There is a large 2 bay building to keep your vehicle under shelter and store your canoes or kayaks. We are within minutes of the Coburn to Cherry Run hiking and biking trail to the west and Buffalo Valley Rail Trail to the East. A short drive to groceries, restaurants and thousand of acres of state forest and state game lands, wineries, and micro breweries. We are only about 10 miles from Woodward Camp. Far enough away from yet close enough to everything you'll need. Great kayaking, fishing, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling, or just a quiet, peaceful, relaxing weekend getaway. Sorry-must be 21 years of age to rent our cabin and IF YOU PLAN ON FISHING--YOU MUST HAVE A VALID PA FISHING LICENSE. We encourage you to please read all the information in the rental agreement and the paperwork on the table upon your arrival. It will make our job easier when you leave and lower the time it takes to prepare for the next guest. Thank You

About John and Sandy Erdley

Hello, John and Sandy Erdley here. I'm an asphalt construction worker and musician and my wife Sandy is in retail. After moving here from Main Street, over 20 years ago, we came upon this cabin on one of our first walks down the old rail bed. After 3 tries to purchase it over a 17 year period we finally got it. We get to enjoy it when you our guests are not here and we only hope that you, our guests enjoy it as much as we do.

John and Sandy Erdley purchased this cabin in 2013

Why John and Sandy Erdley chose Pennsylvania

Cot N Munch is located on the banks of one of the most famous Trout streams on the East coast, the Penns Creek., famous for it's Green Drake hatch and fly fishing. In my early teens I and my 2 Uncles would visit the Weikert area right up the road for the first day of Trout Season. On the way home we would stop and walk down a road to the Penns. One day awhile back when walking back to my house after a morning of fishing I realized the road I now live on was that road. So this is a very special place to me. Over the years I've spent quite some time on the beautiful water of the Penns Creek and from what I've seen I can tell you there are few cabins that have as much privacy, with the view and calm you have at Cot N Munch.

What makes this cabin unique

Cot N Munch is centrally located between Lewisburgs Bucknell University and State College, home of the Penn State Nittany Lions. It is on stocked water and it's the perfect place to kayak to or from. We are within minutes of the Coburn to Cherry Run Hiking and Biking trail to the West and Buffalo Valley trail to the East. A short drive to groceries, fuel, restaurants, microbreweries, wineries, State Forrest and State Game Lands. We are only 10 miles from Woodward Camp, a modern X game training facility.

Need to mention: In the garage you will find an unlimited (be reasonable) amount of firewood. Please keep in mind the size of your fire and weather conditions and make sure it is out before you leave.

If you are going to smoke, smoke outside and please use the three sand buckets or fire pit. Respect our property and the next guest by not throwing butts on our property. If you can not you will be charged extra on a revisit.

The wall at the front of the property was my last accomplishment prior to back surgery. It took a lot of time and energy. This being said, do not play or allow the children to play on the wall.

Do not move picnic table. The chairs around the fir ring may be moved wherever you wish, except to your home.

Thank You, John

Tranquil and cozy get away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this cabin. This is a very unique and cozy little cabin that I would recommend to everyone I know. We actually loved the fact that the cabin itself had no running water and could only be accessed in the shower area. It gave it just that much more of a rustic, authentic camp type feel. The setting and scenery is beautiful and there is a ton to do and see. Plentiful wildlife and natural beauty. We were lucky enough to be there during a full moon and were quickly reminded just how bright the stars shine in the country. The fire pit was amazing, and it was really nice to fall asleep surrounded by only the sound of the creek flowing and a lack of city lights. Truly wonderful experience. We will be back frequently!

Soul Recharging

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to go to fish, unplug, relax, and reconnect with yourself, your spouse, and the great outdoors.

There's plenty to do in the surrounding areas if you don't like to fish, but that's what we went there for on our second trip. We fished everyday and we saw some amazing natural moments while waiting for our fish to bite. From the diving ospreys, coffee in the morning with the herons, to all the snapping turtles everywhere, even a bear crossing the creek; we definitely got to see some amazing sites.

We were there for the new moon, and it's so dark outside, the Milky Way was clearly visible, a sight infrequent for today's modern light-polluted skies. Do as the Amish do, and turn them off!

The cabin itself it cozy and perfect, with everything you could need to make your stay effortless.

Amazing Trip

  • 5 of 5

The trip was everything we could have hoped for and more. The cabin and location was exactly how it was described. The remote location made for a nice relaxing quiet stay along the river. Even though the river was running low during our stay, the fishing was still great. We only met John while we were there, but he was an amazing host and a great guy. Can't wait to come back for another trip.

The property is amazing as far as where it is located.

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is located in the woods it is a beautiful scenic property as you will ever see, everything you would ever need is supplied for you. No internet and no cable is a problem when bad weather rolls in. The stream is about 50 yards from the back porch, fishing however is very hard as the stream bottom is nothing but rocks upon rocks and your tackle will always be snagged on the rocks 99.9% of the time. The cabin itself is great with the exception of the bathroom as there is no running water, the latrine/bathroom has a very HORRIBLE smell and sometimes it will swirl through the cabin, best bet use the outhouse.
