About Lisa Martin

My name is Lisa Martin & my husband is Merv.

My husband works for his brother in a tire shop & I am a secretary at a private school nearby.

We both love old log cabins & peaceful settings.

It had been a dream of ours to restore a old log cabin.

We built this cabin to rent out & share with others.

The cabin was orginally from Manhiem. We numbered the logs tore it down & moved them to this property. My husband & son built the cabin & set it back up. Every minute of spare time they had they worked on it. It took around 1 year to complete. We would love you to come & stay!

Lisa Martin purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Lisa Martin chose Pennsylvania

This is an awesome place to enjoy the woods and nature. It is peaceful & secluded. It is the perfect place for a restored old log cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the solitude & wildlife while staying at the cabin. It is a great place to unwind! Enjoy sitting on the rocking chairs on the front porch overlooking the pond. Listen to the birds, watch for the deer, in the spring listen to the peepers.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We were so lucky to uncover this treasure in the woods - a perfect spot full of charm & peace. Getting away to just enjoy some solitude together was made all the more memorable because of this idyllic setting. We had fun exploring the local antique shops & enjoying just exploring the countryside - roaming free, happening upon a covered bridge or a small country store, sitting on the deck in the rockers as dusk turned to night - or in the morning as we enjoyed our coffee - we loved to be so one with nature - birds chirping, frogs croaking, lightening bugs flickering. I'm sure we will come back - would love to see it in winter & take in all the natural beauty, rest & relaxation this place has to offer.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If I could rate this cabin and property 10 stars, I would. This was the most simplistic, quaint, relaxing cabin we have ever rented. My husband and I rented it for a long weekend with our puppy. He had a blast playing with the orange cat that "owns" the cabin. He met two horses, too. We fished in the pond right outside the front door and sat and watched two bald eagles soar above us. It was great having our morning coffee on the front porch. The hot tub is inside the bathroom so you don't even have to go outside no matter the weather! The owners decorated it beautifully and didn't miss anything. They were helpful in giving us names of places to visit while in the area. I can't wait to come back in March or June for a long mother/daughter weekend! My husband and I will be back again, too. I highly recommend this cabin if you want to get away from the world for a while and just relax. Thank you Merv and Lisa for sharing your wonderful cabin!

If I could give this cabin more than 5 stars I would! My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves on our honeymoon! We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin. Every little detail of the cabin is perfect. We enjoyed spending our mornings and our evenings on the front porch! We will be back for many years to come!

The cabin was beautiful. Perfect mix of vintage cabin feel with newer amenities. The cat family outside was very friendly and welcoming. The area was beautiful. Perfect for a mini getaway. Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed our stay. :)
