                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: In 2004, my husband, Ken, and I spent a couple long weekend vacations in the Albrightsville area of the Poconos. At that time, we were vacation home renters ourselves and had a great time with the variety of things to do in the area, even on a budget! There are parks, beaches, hiking, rafting, boating, skiiing, great roads for motorcycle riding (if you are into that sort of thing) and so much more! In 2005, we decided to purchase Twin Oaks to offer it as a vacation rental, as well as, enjoy it ourselves with friends and family from time to time. We continue to visit the house regularly and spend much of our time there ensuring it is well maintained for our guests so they may enjoy the area just the way we have. We both work full time (I'm in Human Resources and Ken is in Construction) and live in the Montgomery County PA area with our three cats: Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Rudie.
