Beautiful home nestled in the woods on the shores of Fairview Lake. We have 300 feet of shore line and one and a half acres of property covered in mountain laurel, rhodedenderon, and wild blueberries. Our home is oriented toward the west and captures sunsets over the lake.
Our three level home features interior beams, stairs, and loft railings made of logs cleared from the property. These with pine paneling, wide plank yellow pine flooring, and white walls give a warm and airy feel. The living room on the main floor features a cathedral ceiling, with huge windows overlooking the lake and a fireplace with raised hearth. The elevated deck also overlooks the lake, as does the screened-in porch, equipped for family gatherings with its 12 foot picnic table. Another feature of the house is the screened in porch at the other end of the house --a great place for a quiet read. Recreation room downstairs, with TV and games. On the top floor more bedrooms, the master suite with whirlpool tub.
A woodsy path takes you down to our large dock, a great spot for sunning, swimming, stargazing. Canoe, kayaks and a row boat await you. Since we are on the quiet side of the point, in a no wake zone, it's a good spot for watching wildlife and fishing.
A short walk brings you to a park with tennis courts, basketball and handball courts, an athletic field, and a playground with covered picnic area. Just a few steps further down Gumbletown Road is Coutt's Blueberry farm, U-pick heaven (and ice cream rewards in the gift shop!) 15 min drive takes you to Hawley for antiquing, farmer's market, spa and fine dining (the Settler's Inn is our favorite). Great golf courses all 30-45 minutes away. In winter, we are only 45 minutes from the best skiing in the Poconos, and Tanglewood, for beginners, is just 5 minutes away.
