About Darla Treaster
My wife Darla and I both grew up in Sullivan County. My parents had the pond built, which is right next to the cabin, back in the 70's and then later sold the property. When it came back on the market in 1988 , we quickly bought the property and brought it back into the family. We currently live in the area with our three small dogs named Scooter, Princes, and Riley James. We both immensely enjoy hunting, fishing, gardening and traveling.
Darla Treaster purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Darla Treaster chose Dushore
We built this cabin in 2006 . The cabin setting has a special serenity that just needs to be shared with the world. Many guests claim they never really find the need to travel anywhere else while in the area, since the pond and the surroundings are entertaining enough. Simply no where else you need to be! But, if you do find the need to venture out and about, the great outdoors beckons. Activities to do in the area include: ***Visit Kelly's Koop near Dushore. (Antiques, collectibles, home decor, etc.) ***Visit Bear Mtn. Trading Post in Estella, Pa near Forksville. This store has delicious soft serve ice cream, other food-collectibles, antiques and a little bit of everything else. ***Day hike the 54.6 mile long Loyalsock trail. ***Visit Hunter's Lake (approx 70 acres)near Eaglesmere, PA. If you have a canoe/kayak, you may want to bring it with you to fully enjoy this lake. It is stocked with trout and has many species of fish. You will probably see an osprey fishing, or even a bald eagle. We sometimes see eagles at our pond as well. ***Kayak down the Susquehanna River at Wyalusing, Pa. Bring your own kayak or easier yet, rent canoes/kayaks from Endless Mtns. Outfitters. They will be happy to fully accommodate you. Don't be surprised if you see bald eagles on your venture. Eagles are plentiful in this area. ***Day trip to Knoebel's amusement park in Elyburg, PA ***Visit Rickett's Glen State Park -here you can hike the trails and see amazing waterfalls, plus virgin timber. Maybe you will even see a bear! ***Visit Lake Jean at Rickett's Glen. Kayak rentals. ***Visit World's End State Park near Forksville, PA. Beautiful Loyalsock Creek runs through this park, also hiking trails, swimming, and picnic areas. ***Visit the village of Shunk, Pa. Shunk still has a general store that makes really good sandwiches, fries, etc. It has all the typical items that a general store has plus numerous antiques on display. In addition, there are souvenirs for you,
What makes this Cabin unique
The pond offers excellent fishing. What's better, you don't need a PA . fishing license to fish in our pond. We already took care of that for you. All we ask is that you carefully, and quickly return all fish unharmed to the water. All fishing is catch and release. There are boats for your use, just always wear a life jacket, please. The pond is easily accessible and provides a refuge for many birds and animals, plus weary people that need a break from it all.

Beautiful and peaceful. Great for kids!
We had a wonderful time at the Treaster cabin - plenty of space for our 2 young boys to run around, peaceful surroundings, and tidy, comfortable cabin. The cabin was the perfect size for our family of 4 - comfortable beds and just enough space. Kitchen had everything we needed. Having small kids with grabby hands, I really appreciated the lack of knick - knacks - that meant I could relax and not worry about things getting broken! The property was private and had abundant wildlife. The only other sound was the occasional plane over head. The stars were glorious. We took the 45 min trip to Ricketts glen state park, which had great hiking and a very nice lake beach. Overall, an excellent vacation into the mountains. We hope to come back again!
Dale, Ann Marie my wife Linda and I had a great time
Everything we required was there. Fishing was great and also was the weather. We got tired before the fish. Thanks again for everything.
Very nice and relaxing
Although we had to cut our stay short, Paul and Darla have a very nice setup,the cabin was nice and clean and well provisioned, the pond was excellent. We certainly hope to come back and stay again.
Very relaxing. Great fishing
This was our first experience with vrbo. We were a bit apprehensive, but were very pleased.
Everything was very relaxing. Great fishing everyday. Perfect for a family trip
Such a beautiful place!
My boyfriend, dad and myself REALLY enjoyed staying here! The weather we got was perfect! We didn't catch any fish at all, but did see some turtles. The geese and birds were pretty entertaining. The night sky when there's no clouds is beautiful! We utilized the fire pit every night, played some games;roasted marshmallows and looked at the stars. The paddle boats and row boats were so much fun and a good work out! The lake/pond was much bigger then i actually anticipated it to be,SO PRETTY! Also got to walk around the wooded area back there.. really pretty with different trees. The cabin was clean and came with a lot of essentials. Definetly would love to come back again!
Great fishing in our pond. Free Paddleboat and rowboat use for our guests. NO FISHING LICENSE REQUIRED. Catch and release, no kill fishing only.
Two state parks nearby, Worlds End State Park and Ricketts Glen State Park. If you desire to visit World's End or Ricketts Glen State Park and their cabins are booked full or you desire a more modern cabin with privacy, fishing, and boating, our cabin should be your first choice.
Hunter's Lake, an undeveloped, public lake located near Eagles Mere, consists of 117 acres. This lake is good for kayaking and fishing. Lake Jean is another good choice. You can rent canoes and kayaks at Ricketts Glen State Park to use on Lake Jean.
Another outdoor activity located nearby is kayaking or canoeing down the Susquehanna River near Sugar Run, Pa. You can fish, look for bald eagles, or just paddle happily down the river during your trip. The Endless Mtns. Outfitters will be happy to help you out with the kayak/canoe rentals.
