About Benn Batterson
I was born and raised in Coudersport. After meeting my wife and graduating from Penn State we moved back to the area. I had met the previous owner of the farm while working on their grounds. We currently live and raise our family on a sheep farm in Potter County. We strive to provide a childhood of years gone past
Benn Batterson purchased this Farmhouse in 2000
Why Benn Batterson chose Abbott
We purchased the farmhouse and 34 acres in 2000 and bought the remainder of the farm years later. Over the years we have improved much of the house with the latest being a new barn roof this past summer. I love the peace and quiet here. However the winters can be long between Christmas and Spring.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We are 20 minutes from the nearest traffic light. Our farm is bordered on three sides by 250,000 acres of State Forest land. Public access to these areas allows for many outdoor activities. We are the last permanent residence on Short Run Road and may only see the mailman each day in the winter.

Loved our stay!
We live in Cleveland, Ohio......so this was the perfect getaway for us. Up early in the morning, all you hear are birds and the rooster crowing. Very relaxing! We plan to stay again. Thank you, Benn and family, for offering this home for renting!
Benn was very easy to work with. The house was awesome. We will be renting it again. Thanks again Benn.
Nice farm house, but no privacy.
Nice large farm house, but there are ladybugs and stinkbugs everywhere in the house. The owners live about 100 yards down the road and watched my every move. I received a text message asking me to pay for extra guests that were there for an evening card game. Someone also entered the house when we had left for the day. All in all, if you are looking for a very large house to accommodate many guests, you don't mind bugs and don't really value your privacy this is a perfect place for you. I will not be back!
Beautiful, quiet and relaxing
The house and property surrounding were beautiful- exactly what we had hoped for. We love the charm and history of old houses so this place was right up our alley! We spent the long weekend enjoying time with our young kids- playing with the chickens, sled riding on the hill across the road, family time hanging out and playing games. The first full day there, the weather was in the 50s so we took that time to drive around and explore- the warm weather led to melting ice and some really beautiful scenery at the local parks, despite the constant light rain that fell most of the day. That night, there was a snow storm that came through laying a few inches of snow- enough that we could have fun playing and sled riding with the kids. Our last night there, the skies were clear and we were able to take in the stars (without a telescope). We've visited the area before but it's just as beautiful every time we are up there! Benn was very accommodating and friendly. He greeted us as we arrived and was great about communicating with me prior to our trip to ensure that we had everything we needed. We are definitely hoping to stay here again- maybe during the summer months so we can enjoy everything that the property has to offer during the warm weather season!
There is a time when the birds have gone to sleep but the crickets haven't started yet when there is complete silence. Everything I needed was in the house, and everything I wanted was in that silence outside the house.
Peace, quiet, stargazing and chickens!
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely farmhouse tucked away in Potter County. We didn't have the best skies for star gazing but the second night we did enjoy about 45 minutes of crystal clear skies perfect for stargazing. For an easy day trip, we went to Kinzua State Park and trekked out on the railroad bridge and down in to the valley with the it's ruins. There are so many other state parks in the area, take your pick for a nice hike. For free time spent in the house, I'd recommend bringing activities like books, games, etc. The house is quite lovely and very clean. Thanks for the wonderful weekend Benn!
We are located in North Central Pennsylvania surrounded by the Susquehannock State Forest. We have direct access to snowmobile trails and horseback riding. The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon and hiking trail is 30 minutes away.
