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

THANK YOU!!!

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.

Wonderfully Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly as described. Beautifully restored. Old with new mixed nicely. Enjoyed sitting on the porch the most. Even when it rained. So peaceful. Enjoyed seeing the animals come through. Especially the little tabby cat. Owner, Lisa, was very easy to work with. I would highly recommend this place if you're looking for a restful, quiet stay. Looking forward to another stay in the future.

The property was lovely and the cabin so cute and cozy. Like little house on the prairie.

  • 4 of 5

We were so pleased when we drove up. Very private and beautiful setting. The cabin was darling on the inside and so tastefully done. Only concern is if you don't like cats you could find it a bit annoying The 2 cats are sweet and add to the visit if you like cats. I would definitely love to come back again someday and am thankful I live close by.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We are so happy that you enjoyed it. We have found a home for the mother cat. But still have the male orange cat. If you are staying at our cabin & don't like cats or are allergic, please let us know & we won't let him out of our house. We definitely do not want him to keep you away. We hope that you return again!

Lovely!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely and charming as always...although, we surprisingly enjoyed the cats, I'm allergic, so they were in an out of the cabin. It was hard to keep them from coming in. Always beautiful and enjoyable, thank you! We will come again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! We are so glad you had a lovely stay! We also hope you return again! It is our goal in the next month to re-home the kitties! (Sorry for the trouble they caused you) They have started to think that the cabin is their home because they receive so much attention there. So to any of you guests coming in the next month - if you are allergic to animals, please let us know. We can keep them in our house. We want to work with you & make your stay the best possible!!!
