What was it like to live in rural Pennsylvania over 100 years ago in the log farm house/cabin built in 1897? Arriving at THE FARM HOUSE you see the old hand operated well pump and smell the fresh trees and flowers . As you approach the door you see the distinct axe marks scribed into the ageless hand hewn timbers, and the chinking skillfully placed between the logs. You enter through the kitchen door and immediately you are greeted with the old wood fired cookstove. Sitting at the kitchen table, cast iron cookware hang from nails driven into rough sawn beams, you can almost see and smell the cook preparing a big hearty farm family meal. Soon you find yourself almost living in another time and another age. At THE FARM HOUSE, you'll find it easy to visualize life over 100 years ago in Pennsylvania.
The FARM HOUSE is an off the grid solar powered home. This unique private 100 acre property with modern conveniences in a rustic setting overlooks a meadow and wooded area . The pond which is a few steps from the Farm House provides a special touch to the surroundings. Unfortunately, it is not available for recreational use. The double deck sleeping porch welcomes you to relax and enjoy the rocking chairs while reading a book or visiting with friends.
