No Boys Allowed – The Girls’ Getaway

By Teresa Patterson

Isn’t there a time when all women would like to just hideaway? Get away from all the hustle and bustle and relax. No boys allowed, just an all girls trip. Sorry boys, this time girls rule! Why not go somewhere we don’t have to think about deadlines or chores, but indulge in fun, relaxation and lady conversation. Whether you are looking to celebrate a special event or just looking for a place to unwind with your special friends, The Elk Country Hideaway and The Clear Creek Cottage are the perfect places for a good time.

It could be that since a woman is the Managing Partner and Owner of both locations that every detail for women to be able to relax has been addressed. All you need are your clothes and food. The Elk Country Hideaway located in Benezette, PA, was purchased in 2002 due to the love for the area and the elk herd. A secluded 5 acres with a house that sleeps six, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, air conditioning, washer/dryer, and dishwasher. Enjoy some girl time around the fire ring or just relax on the large deck with morning coffee or evening drinks and watch the wildlife that visit. Elk, bear, foxes, turkeys and more have been known to stop by the quiet secluded Hideaway. Take a ride to see the elk herd. Take a walk or visit a local restaurant, gift shop, or the popular Elk Visitors Center. Winter is quiet and serene at the Hideaway if you are looking for an after the holidays way to relax.

Another great option is The Clear Creek Cottage. The Cottage is located on 2 acres with access to the Clarion River. The Cottage has 3 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, family room with fireplace, screened porch that overlooks pines and ferns that lead to the river. The Cottage also has a beautiful big deck with a hot tub. Get away to fish, float the river, kayak, or just relax and watch the wildlife. Eagles, otters, deer, turkey, and bear can all be seen on occasion. Hiking, antiquing, wineries, Clear Creek State Park and Cook Forest all are within a short driving distance. What could be more fun than hanging out with some of the most important ladies in your life while experiencing the great outdoors? No boys!!
