Weekend at Gateway Lodge


We had the most amazing weekend at Gateway Lodge and I can't wait to share this blog post with all of you! Gateway Lodge is located in Cook Forest State Park near Clarion, Pennsylvania, and offers luxury suites, rustic cabins, and onsite restaurant and spa. It is the perfect getaway for couples, or even an amazing girls weekend! We enjoyed our time so much at this adorable lodge and I can't say enough wonderful things about the entire lodge and staff. 

Where even to start? The rooms were so comfortable, relaxing, and seriously so romantic. I loved the heart shaped jacuzzi tub and the fireplace that was literally right next to it. It couldn't have been more perfect. 






My husband loved the private balcony attached to the room and we even were told sometimes you can see a black bear from the cliffs in eye sight of our balcony!  We enjoyed our morning coffee and tea taking in the beautiful view from the balcony. Seriously how cute is this! 



We just loved our room so much at Gateway Lodge. We had a luxury suite which included a king size bed, private balcony, gas fireplace with fireside jacuzzi, a spacious bathroom with dual sinks, a sofa and mini-fridge. The room was absolutely perfect and I loved that it did not include a TV (they do have rooms with TV you just have to request them when booking). It was so nice to focus all the attention onto each other this weekend and just spend real quality time.

 Gateway Lodge also has a restaurant and wine bar on site along with a room with a pool table. We enjoyed laughing over dinner, sharing a bottle of wine, and even my almost triumphant win at pool over my husband.. (almost). 



How amazing are the light fixtures in the restaurant and bar.
 I also loved how they brought nature into the decor!



The restaurant at Gateway Lodge is amazing. They offer breakfast for lodge/cabin guests, brunch on Sundays, and dinner. For my husband and I, Gateway Lodge created an amazing vegan menu for our breakfast and dinners over the weekend. I can't tell you just how incredible the food was. Everything was beautifully presented but tasted even better. We were blown away by the food here at Gateway Lodge. Also the service was fantastic. All of the people who work at Gateway Lodge are so friendly and helpful. We honestly felt right at home and its truly because of the staff. 

The entire lodge is beautiful and so peaceful. This is one of our favorite spots in the lodge.
 They have a common area thats beautiful and we loved sitting by the fireplace. 





Gateway Lodge also has a spa on site that looked amazing. We didn't experience it, but I know the next time we stay at Gateway Lodge I'm booking a appointment. The Woods Spa partners with Aveda that offer pure plant and flower essences, ingredients sourcing from indigenous farmers, high post-consumer recycled packaging, manufacturing through wind-powered energy, and a commitment to cruelty-free testing.  



If your planning on taking a trip to Gateway Lodge you have several options for rooms to stay in. We stayed in the luxury suites but there is also the gallery room. The Gallery Rooms are very cozy and rustic luxury rooms. They have a bark-lined accent wall, reclaimed wooden doors and ceiling, copper sink, stone tiling and even a rainfall shower. We got a chance to check out a gallery room and they were gorgeous. I loved all the detail decor that incorporated nature into this room. 






If your looking to stay in a cabin Gateway Lodge has six cozy cabins to pick from. Escape to the quiet of the woods for a weekend or a week-long stay in one of Gateway Lodge's six cozy, rustic cabins, each with a outdoor fire ring and picnic area.

 Cabins sleep two to six persons. And most include kitchens and comfortable living rooms. Linens are provided. All cabin with kitchens include cooking utensils, tableware and serving dishes. 1/8th cord of firewood is also provided as part of your stay. 


We loved staying at Gateway Lodge and hiking throughout Cooks Forest. If your looking for an amazing, relaxing, beautiful trip than I would 100% book a room at Gateway Lodge. 

Make sure you mention that you learn about Gateway Lodge 
from The Jaroudis when booking your stay!
