Brian O'Keefe owns Mooretown Sawmill as well as several rental properties in the local mountain area. Born and raised in Mooretown, Brian had a dream of carving out the land and creating a successful sawmill.

His dream became a reality in 1987. Mooretown Mill is located in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Pa. near the unforgettable Rickett's Glen State Park. Here at Mooretown, we use local timber to produce a quality product.

That same product and craftsmanship can be found in all of Brian's rental properties producing a beautiful rustic feel. He takes great pride in the quality of his work and enjoys sharing that with others.

All of our renters will tell you that Brian will go out of his way to ensure your stay is unforgettable.

In his spare time (if any) he enjoys jaunts on his KTM motorcycle, and is an active member in many organizations dealing with educating the youth of PA in the logging industry; his passion and joy.

He lives at Mooretown with his Black Labs, Echo and Bear Cub.

Brian purchased this house in 2009

You can't beat this location if you are looking for a get-away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Cozy, quiet, rustic, yet local to any outdoor activities enough to keep you busy! Enjoy the outdoors all year long!

The cabin is fully equipped. No need to pack everything just to get away for a mountain vacation. All the amenities and yet you don't have to 'rough it'. Rickett's Glen state park hosts over 1 million visitors a year. Our property is minutes from the Park. Enjoy hiking over 22 waterfalls, kayaking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, hunting or just enjoying some good local BBQ and be minutes away from kicking back in front of the fireplace or out in the pavilion.

Great house, beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to rendezvous with family and friends. The cabin is beautiful, immaculate and well equipped. Brian, the landlord, owns a sawmill and the interior has exceptional custom woodwork throughout. Open beams, plank floors, an old stone fireplace and handmade furnishings add a warm welcoming feel for a getaway. Rickett's Glen Park is minutes away and the hiking past towering waterfalls through dense forest was the highlight of our trip. For the less adventurous, there were wineries, antique shops, farmer and flea markets to explore. There are many restaurants in the area but one of our friends is a gourmet cook and enjoyed preparing feasts for all in the well equipped kitchen. Every evening found us out back, around the firepit, having drinks and talking about the day. I highly recommend a visit and will be back.

great location for hiking!

Right around the corner from Ricketts Glen and Lake Jean, close to World's End and Eagle's Mere, not too far from Knobel's. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable cabin in a great location, this is it. All the mod-cons are available, but it still retains its rustic feel.

Vacation review-Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time, just a few items that were easily fixed- the propaine tank on outdoor grill was empty, but we were able to refill at corner store. (Glad we checked before meal time).
Black ants were seen in kitchen and bathroom

Great stay on short notice

  • 5 of 5
We were very satisfied with the condition of the cabin. Everything was clean and all kitchen appliances seemed new. The stream next to the house was a nice surprise, adding to a very peaceful atmosphere. The indoor fireplace was also very nice since the temperature was low in the evenings. The owners were more than willing to accommodate us on short notice and were extremely pleasant folks to deal with. We will definitely recommend this cabin to our friends and family looking to visit the area.
