                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Honest and hard working are words we have heard to describe us. We have shared many adventures in the 40 years we have been married. Although we are both technically 'retired', we are always working on a project. In the fall of 2011, we purchased a run down cottage on Duck Harbor Pond. Over the winter we tore it down and in the spring of 2012 we started building this new log cabin. The design and most of the labor was done by us. We hope you will appreciate our pride in workmanship and love every minute you spend in our cabin.

                  Why the Owner Chose Honesdale:
                  We are blessed to be permanent residents in our own log cabin at Duck Harbor Pond. Sharing our piece of 'Paradise' with others in this new this cabin has been a great pleasure.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  ECO-Friendly and respect for nature and our environment. The logs and all wood are locally grown and processed. From the lights and windows to the appliances and granite, our choices reflect energy efficiency and organic materials.
