This is a small, dog-friendly house that overlooks High Point Lake, a hidden gem that houses eagle nests and beautiful sunrises. A short walk to the public lake for fishing (non-motorized boats only), but not commonly used for swimming. It is within a few miles of Mount Davis, the highest point in Pennsylvania, a great area for hiking and has lots of geocaches for kids. Within a short drive are swimming holes, the bike trail from Pittsburgh to DC, and abundant whitewater for all skill levels. Flat water kayaks are available for use on High Point Lake upon approval. This house has the benefit of quiet but access to many small towns, Amish markets, and local festivals. Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob are about 20 miles away.
Everything you need is supplied. The kitchen is stocked with high quality equipment, plus a large range of spices and condiments. There is a BBQ on the deck. Smoking is OK outside if the butts are picked up. Pets are very welcome for an additional fee of $10/day/pet. The deck latches for them and we hope you will clean up after them. The deck gets stained every year and has a sitting area and cooler/table combo. There is a separate area for a fire-pit.
Internet reception is good and guests have access to a computer. The mountains block TV but cell phone reception works for Verizon but not AT&T and Sprint. There is a landline for local and long distance calls. All rooms except the office have TVs set up for streaming and there is an external hard drive that can be hooked up to each TV with lots of movies for all ages.
I'm very laid back and trust the guests to take care of the place. I'm constantly working to improve it. The house is best suited for 4 to 6. There is a small fee for more than 6 to try to compensate for extra cleaning and wear and tear.
