A delightful and authentic visit to the Pennsylvania Wilds! The secluded large rustic lodge consists of two side by side wings (buildings) connected by a deck walkway. Each wing has three levels. There are 28 rooms in all, each having lovely views of the surrounding forest. Multiple living room areas accommodate comfortable reading and relaxation spaces as well as venues for crafts, cards, board games and group exchanges. Libraries invite browsing. Expansive decks at the second level of each wing encourage similar activities outside.
There is a fully-equipped large kitchen with an adjacent large dining area; a kitchenette is also available for additional food preparation. Many cooks can comfortably work together without concern for 'spoiling the broth.' (Guests are, of course, responsible for their own food. Recommendations for catering services and local restaurants will be available. (It should be noted, however, that restaurants and grocery stores are at least nine miles away.
Rustic and woodsy - but well-appointed : Although the lodge is rustic it is well-appointed with comfort features such as hot water baseboard heat fueled by natural gas from wells on the property. Some floors are oak hardwood; others are carpeted. Creative touches introduced by the owner-builder throughout the buildings surprise and delight guests. The owners are often available on the premises, in residence in a small apartment in the lower area of one of the two wings. The owners or their representatives are available to provide information regarding any property questions.
150 acres for exploration and outdoor games: There are ponds on the property and trails for walking through the 150 acres of fields and forests. Guests particularly enjoy the photographic opportunities and nature study. Outdoor activities are available including campfires and games such as croquet. horseshoes, badminton and volleyball.
Activity Barn: A large three-season activity barn is sometimes separately rented for special events (with up to 50 participants) for special gatherings such as parties, concerts, dances, group meetings,yoga or tai chi workshops, The barn, like the lodge, has large decks for enjoying the woodland landscape. As well as open space, the barn has ample seating accommodation, food serving areas and toileting facilities. A $500 fee (plus sales tax) for the use of this facility for a 12 hour period (e.g., noon to midnight; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.) includes utilities, cleaning service and space for parking up to 50 vehicles. The activity barn can be rented along with the lodge as part of a package or as a stand-alone rental which does not provide lodge accommodations. Lodge rentals for groups of 20 or more usually also include arrangements for access to the activity barn space.
