This three story vacation home in the beautiful Endless Mountains is centrally located just 4 miles south of Dushore on what is locally known as 'Ringer Hill'. Part of the original 1850 homestead of Francis Xavier Lusch, this home is privately situated on 4 acres and within a short drive of World's End State park, Eagles Mere, the Loyalsock Trail(hiking to the 'Haystacks') and Rickett's Glen State park. The area boasts great fishing in the big and little Loyalsock Creeks as well as some picturesque swimming holes, countless hiking trails, majestic vista views and just the simple beauty of nature which surrounds you everywhere you go. This is truly a great getaway meant for relaxing.

In this spacious home, you will find 4 large bedrooms; two with full-size beds, (one on the main floor) one with a queen-size bed and one which features twins beds.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Hi I'm John, this is my family; Kay my wife, daughters Jessica and Sarah, and son John Michael. I am the 5th generation of my family to own this land. This is the 3rd piece of the puzzle since my mother had to sell all of it back in 1980. My wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to retire and purchase these properties back. We rebuilt the old farmhouse just down the road in 2008 and acquired the property next door (Lusch Acres Retreat) in 2010. We are excited about sharing the beauty and peacefulness that 'Ringer Hill' and the Lusch Acres properties afford our guests.

              Why the Owner Chose Dushore:
              Sullivan County is considered the 'Gem' of the Endless mountains. At 2,100 ft of elevation and heavily forested you enjoy the cool summer nights. Also, there are only 6,000 full time residents in the whole county. The mountainous terrain, streams, lakes, State parks and Forest has retained all of the beauty and peacefulness I remember as a small boy growing up on 'Ringer Hill'

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              Lusch Acres Lodge has a private setting away from the main highways (Rte 87, 487 & 220) but is centrally located to the county as a whole so it is very convenient to the many attractions the county has to offer and it is also only a 5 minute drive into Dushore for groceries, church, and restaurants. So watch the Deer, Turkeys or Bear from the decks or head out on one of many adventures.
