We love the atmosphere of quiet tranquility, sitting on the back porch and enjoying the mountain view, in beautiful Buck Hill Falls -- dynamic and peaceful at the same time.
The house maintains its old-fashioned 1950s "feel", recalling a less hectic age, but there's lots going on. It works great with one or two couples or a larger family group, giving you ample room to spread out, connect with others, or find your own quiet place inside or out by the pond (stare at the goldfish). An extensive trail system (4000 wilderness acres) starts right outside our door. In 5-10 minutes walk to lovely waterfalls, ice-cold crystal-clear streams where you can take a a refreshing dip, and amenities (beautiful Olympic-size pool, tennis courts, 27-hole golf course).
The main living room-dining room area adjoins a fully-equipped kitchen (vintage 1950s) and porch with picnic table. The first-floor bedroom suite has a double bed and its own bath (it works well for people who want to avoid stairs). On the second floor there is a master bedroom suite with bath (queen-size bed), a second bedroom with two twin beds, and a den with fold-out Queen-size couch. The second bedroom and den have their own full bath. There is an overflow sleeping area in the basement with twin bed and full bath.
Buck Hill Falls is a comfortable, relaxed, Quaker-founded family-oriented community. Many families have been spending their summers here for generations. There are community-wide activities for children, teens and families; it's easy to join in. But there's also plenty of room for you to find your own rhythm and march to your own drummer.

We bought this property to get away from the hectic world of our busy career-oriented lives, and to have a place for family gatherings. Through the years we have had wonderful times with different family groupings, including our younger relatives -- children and teens of various ages -- and other friends (individuals and couples) to spend weekends or longer with us. The atmosphere promotes the kind of connecting that we treasure with those we care about.
The setting of Buck Hill Falls is ideal. The houses are clustered together in a community; you don't feel isolated. All types of stores and restaurants are right around the corner, but it's quiet. The 5000 acres of wilderness really give you a sense of getting away from it all. The house itself is solid, old-fashioned, spacious and comfortable. Kick off your shoes, take a deep breath and feel at home.
Our house is on the edge of 4000 acres of pristine primeval forest maintained by the Buck Hill Falls Company with all levels of hiking trails, streams, waterfalls, overnight trail shelter
