My husband and I recently stayed at Gateway Lodge after a day of tubing and canoeing. We checked in and were given a personal tour of the lodge. Staff was friendly. The room was comfortable. No cell phone service, but happy to get away from the hectic world and no children allowed! They do have wifi. The restaurant was not...

My husband and I spent four nights in a Gateway Lodge suite at peak holiday season. We were in the USA for three weeks, having travelled from London, England. It was a risk to book the lodge online because we had never seen it and had no idea what to expect. Prior to our break in Cooksburg, we stayed in...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Gateway Lodge for our second year anniversary, and we were very impressed with this place! The staff were very friendly and respectful, the suite was clean, and the food was excellent. We didn't use the massage services they offer, but we found the overall atmosphere of the facility to be serene and...

My husband and I spent a night at the Gateway Lodge in one of the new gallery rooms. Though they are nicely redone, the price was only twenty dollars less than the suites, and they had so much less to offer. In the suites there is a Jacuzzi, a fireplace, a table and chairs, and a refrigerator. We stayed in...

Absolutely stunning and charming. We ate at the restaurant and were totally blown away. The service was outstanding, as was the wine list. Farm fresh fruits and veggies. Highly recommend for a special evening.

Drove seven hours form New York to the lodge. My girlfriend and I just wanted to be relaxed and enjoy the forest. Didn't know what to expect. After our arrival we were so pleased with the acomodations and service. The best part was no tv, phone, or emails to be checked. Just us and the beauty of the forest. We...

Although Gateway lodge itself is a nice little lodge, their cabins in the lower hills are not. Being in cook forest we thought a cabin would be fun and certainly ours was large enough to accommodate a family of four. The problem was the musky smell in the cabin as if the sheets had not been changed for some time,...

I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Gateway Cabins! Sometimes when a guest stays in the Lodge it is often a little strange to move to cabins as the cabins are indeed rustic while the lodge is much more luxurious. Our cabins are indeed rustic cabins in the woods and they definitely smell...

My husband and I were on our way home from a convertible road trip up north last week, and we picked up a brochure for the area. The old growth forests in the area peaked our interest. We were lucky enough to be in the area mid-week so we stopped at the lodge listed in the brochure to see if...

My husband and I were recently visiting family in Pittsburgh and wanted to find somewhere to enjoy a few quiet days alone. He has fond memories of staying in Cook Forest as a child, however we did not want to take a chance on a rustic cabin. The Gateway Lodge met our needs perfectly. It is located near many of...

Our stay exceeded all expectations. The decor is rustic, but not dusty. The building is big, but everything feels intimate. The Jacuzzi was awesome, and the Spa divine. The food was unbelievably good.
