About Robert Dean Jr.
The owners live in a Northern suburb of Philadelphia, and began searching for the perfect property to build a weekend home in 2000, and finally finished construction and took occupancy the day after Thanksgiving in 2004. The property is named "The Fourth Woods" which reflects a childhood memory of the owner. He and his brothers grew up in farm land area filled with forests and fields, and it was their daily playground. They would venture out from home and explore through several large tracts of woodland for several miles until reaching the ''Third Woods'' as they called it, which was deep, mysterious and as far as anyone would go. Time passed, drivers licenses and other interests took hold and Bucks County's suburban sprawl took the woodland. Fast forward a few decades; hunting and walking though this 50 acre mountain property reminded the owner of those days and just how much he enjoyed them and the outdoors. 'The Fourth Woods' seemed appropriate.
Robert Dean Jr. purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Robert Dean Jr. chose Newfoundland
As children, our family went on summer vacations to mountain lake areas such as Pennsylvania's Wallenpaupack, New Yorks Lake George and New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee. Fond memories of camping trips to Tobyhanna and Promised land State Parks, and visiting a friends house on Lake Wallenpaupack. We built our dream vacation home after a two year search for an ideal parcel of land. This one had all of the elements we were looking for; secluded and scenic, huntable woodland with a creek, and close to a large body of water that offered recreation. Not until after we moved in did it become apparent just how perfect our choice was as we kept discovering all that the surrounding small towns had to offer and the area within 30 minutes travel. We began implementing a wildlife habitat improvement program on the property in 2009 and clear cut two 1 acre wildlife crop fields and a 3 acre sanctuary.
What makes this Cabin unique
This log cabin (home) is used frequently by its owners and therefore is furnished and maintained at a much higher standard than a 'rental only' property. The size of the property at '50 acres' of woodland, is a feature almost completely unique that most vacation rental homes simply don't have. The time, effort, and expense put forth in decorating the interior were an endeavor of love and enthusiasm and we think our home reflects that. It is a wonderfully relaxing and quiet setting. You can feel so comfortable and secluded at the cabin yet you are only a short distance from so many things like shopping, dining and many forms of entertainment and of course Lake Wallenpaupack. There are several public boat accesses and beaches around the 15 mile long lake. Best of all when at our cabin, you don't have to be near the sounds and bustle of the big lake 24/7, only when you want to be.

Beautiful Log Cabin, for holiday get away!
We were looking for a long holiday weekend getaway for some family time since our lives are so busy and our kids were home from college. This was our first visit at this cabin and we were not disappointed! We had a family of five and some friends came to visit. We had plenty of room for all of us.
We loved this cabin, it's was so beautiful! We appreciate every detail. It is so authentic and original; the pictures do not do justice. It's very welcoming and cozy and we felt so at home. We loved cooking in the beautiful kitchen and playing games at night around the big table.
The bedrooms were cozy and very roomy. The beds were so comfortable, especially the master bedroom bed.
There's a grocery store nearby and an Agway that we went to everyday to buy deer feed. It was amazing to see so many deer come to feed at night from the cozy great room with the wood burner on.
This beautiful cabin is nestled on 50 acres which is very peaceful and private. My family and dogs loved the nature trail which lead down to the stream.
We also loved sitting around the fire pit each night. There's a lot of outdoor seating and the deck is very spacious.
I must also say the owner, Robert, was great! He was always available and so helpful if we had any questions. Thank you, Robert!
Lastly, we would highly recommend this home to everyone! If you are looking for a peaceful family get away, this place is it!
We will definitely come back, can't wait to visit again. Thank you Dean family for sharing your beautiful home. We loved it and appreciate all your hard work to keep it perfect!
The most relaxing vacation ever!
This was the second year in a row that we stayed at this property. The cabin and surrounding woods are soo peaceful. We had 3 families all together and had plenty of room whereas we wouldnt be on top of each other. Bring a bag of deer feed and fill up the trough every night and sit by the wood stove and watch the deer and fox come visit. Theres a nice trail on the property that takes you to a stream that's very secluded and relaxing. We highly recommend this property to everyone, especially if your looking for peace and quiet.
Thank you for your wonderful review and for taking such great care of our home. Now 14 years after building our cabin we still are not tired of doing the things that you mentioned. Thank you again and look forward to seeing you again hopefully next year.

Spent an awesome weekend here...
This property is exactly what you’re looking for. Some friends and I spent the weekend relaxing and golfing and we had an amazing time. The house is great, it has everything you’d might want. It’s secluded, but not too far off the beaten path to get out and do other things. And when you come back, it feels like home. I loved staying here.
Perfect property, very receptive owner.
Cabin was top notch. Awesome location, we loved the trail in the back. Definitely plan on returning with multiple couples when we can. Owner was extremely receptive and helpful when we called.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and for taking good care of our cabin and for your good communication. We appreciate that you asked questions before enjoying activities on our 50 acre property and trail.
We look forward to hearing from you again.
