I am a Geneticist and a retired University Dean of Science and Math. I am an avid outdoorsman, flyfisher, hiker, golfer, and tennis player. I live in Lancaster, Pa.
I bought this property when I retired in 1999 after visiting this beautiful mountainous area for decades to enjoy the Pennsylvania wild areas and to fly fish on the many streams located nearby.
This log home was originally built as a retirement home, and the sixteen acre site was used by the Pa. Game Commission to conduct studies on Black Bear. Black Bear, Turkey and Deer continue to frequent the property.
The Rails-to-Trails bicycle route is located at the foot of the driveway.
Unique benefits is the private 16.5 acre site includes a private catch and release trout pond, wonderful opportunities to observe wildlife, excellent hiking trails in the area, outstanding fishing, a scenic bicycle path extending over forty miles along Pine Creek, and the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular displays of spring flowers and fall colors.
