About Albert C. Hoffman Ph.D.

I am a Geneticist and a retired University Dean of Science and Math at a Pennsylavnia State System of Higher Education University. I am an avid outdoorsman, flyfisher, hiker, golfer, and tennis player. I live in Lancaster, Pa.

Albert C. Hoffman Ph.D. purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Albert C. Hoffman Ph.D. chose Pennsylvania

I bought this property when I retired in 1999 after visiting this beautiful mountainous area for decades to enjoy the Pennsylvania wild areas and to fly fish on the many streams located nearby.

This log home was originally built as a retirement home, and the sixteen acre site was used by the Pa. Game Commission to conduct studies on Black Bear. Black Bear, Turkey and Deer continue to frequent the property.

The Rails-to-Trails bicycle route is located at the foot of the driveway.

What makes this cabin unique

Unique benefits is the private 16.5 acre site includes a private catch and release trout pond, and grass carp pond. There are wonderful opportunities to observe wildlife. Excellent hiking trails in the area, outstanding fishing, a scenic bicycle path extending over forty miles along Pine Creek, and the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular displays of spring flowers and fall colors.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time over 4th of July weekend. We had two 15 year old boys with us. They got to fish, ride their bikes down the trail, and tube down the creek. They had fun exploring the property. We also have a 1 1/2 year old. There is a swing in the side yard that he enjoyed and he liked running around the yard. Us adults liked kicking back and taking in the beautiful scenery from the property. This truly was a relaxing vacation. The house is nice, clean and comfortable. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 kids. We will be going back next summer.

If you are looking for a place for a family get away, a few days with the boys, or a girls adventure this is the place to stay. There are plenty of sleeping areas, a spacious sun room, a deck with a view that is breath taking. All the conveniences of home in a rustic decor.

There is plenty activities for everyone to enjoy, biking the rails to trails, canoeing/kayaking Pine Creek, and some outstanding fly fishing.

great location in Slate Run

  • 4 of 5

Cabin very nice. Twin bed in the laundry room a bit odd to call it a bedroom. The grill was in very bad shape, but caretaker got new one for us, just in time to make dinner on the grill. Caretaker very easy to contact & helpful. Used the fire pit, very nice & relaxing w/great backdrop of mountains. Beautiful view from deck.

joined up w/my brother's family. Brought our own kayaks & bicycles. Did a 1 hr kayak run on the Pine Creek one day. Contacted Pine Creek Outfitters a few days ahead of time & arranged a pickup at the Slate Run parking area, for a bike ride. They drove us up to Ansonia, PA (~ 1hr ride). We took the 30 mile rails-to-trail back down to Slate Run with our bicycles. Perfect weather (well, a little hot/humid). Then cooled off in the Pine Creek near the cabin.
