YOUR OWN PRIVATE RESORT...............You really are away from it all. Come renew yourself at this Beautiful Log Home getaway. Your mornings may begin with the deck or a porch beckoning you to relax outside and breathe in the 'mountain fresh' morning air. Ease back on the glider bench with a cup of coffee and listen to the sounds of nature while reading your favorite book. Walk on the private marked hiking trail back to a roaring woodland creek and waterfall. Enjoy watching the constant stream of visitors at the bird feeders. Fill the wildlife feed tub (with some deer chow from the local Agway) and gaze through the wall of windows at the amazing nocturnal parade of deer and other animals appearing out of the woodland. After the days activities slip into the sunken hot tub for some deep relaxation. In the winter, fire up the wood stove and enjoy its cozy ambience while watching the snow fall through the large wall of windows.

This beautifully decorated mountain retreat has it all and is ideal for any gathering of family and friends. 3 bedrooms, 2 & 1/2 baths, finished basement. Sleeps 12 (possibly a few more with landlord approval, charges may apply).

Amenities include: AC, 5 TVs w/cable, wifi, large 8 person jacuzzi in a sunroom, foosball table, horse shoes, bow and arrow target w/backstop, outdoor fire pit, gas barbecue, 3/4 mile private hiking trail through beautiful classic Pennsylvania forest.

Bring your 4 wheelers to ride on the property trail. Driveway has ample parking and is large enough to manuver and park a boat/trailer.

Lindsey R.

'I just wanted to express our sincere thanks to you and your snow plow man for being so helpful and coming to our rescue today, we eventually made it home safely! Additionally thank you for renting out your beautiful cabin, we had a lovely time and a magical Christmas. It was the most perfect place to relax over the holidays'.

'Happy New Year! I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home! We hope to rent again from you in the future. All my best'
Monika P.

We had an incredible time this weekend. It couldn't have been better. We had a great time relaxing in the living room and cooking dinners together. Also, the hot tub was a fantastic way to decompress after a day of skiing at Camelback. Thank you for everything.
Lyndsey A.
PS. Is it too early to reserve the same weekend next year ?

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: 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 taking occupancy the day after Thanksgiving in 2004. 'The Fourth Woods' as the cabin property is named, is a page taken from the childhood of the owner. He and his brothers grew up in a farm land area filled with forests and fields, and it was their daily playground. They would venture out and explore through several large tracts of woodland until reaching the 'third woods' as they called it, which was deep, dark, several miles away and as far as anyone would go. Time passed and drivers licenses were obtained, and other interests took over. Fast forward a few decades. Hunting and walking though this 50 acre mountain property reminded him of those days and just how much he enjoyed living and breathing the outdoors. 'The Fourth Woods' seemed appropriate.

                  Why the Owner 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 deer crop fields and a 3 acre sanctuary. We are thinking about building a pond below the house just into the woods and are planning to begin a natural landscape plan for the open area surrounding the house sometime this year.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  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.
