About Larry and Dana Bradford

We live in Washington DC. My wife wanted water and I wanted mountains. We found the best of both worlds within 3 hours of home. We fell in love with the area and bought this property years ago and then built the current home a year or so later. We hope you enjoy as much as we do.

This family picture was taken at Lincoln Caverns at New Years a few years ago.

Larry and Dana Bradford purchased this house in 2005

Why Larry and Dana Bradford chose Hesston

We absolutely love this rural part of the country. Allows us to enjoy the mountains and the water at the same time!

What makes this house unique

On beautiful summer days it is always on the lake or a local creek area that we enjoy. On cold or rainy days it is a trip in town to the old time candy store and two doors down to the early 1900s movie theater (See if you can find the Allegrippis Lodge Plaque in Theatre 2) .

Great propperty, great location and great owners!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this location with family and Juniata College football 'family' and friends more times than I can count! This time was with my old J.C. roommates for a little reunion. The accommodations were perfect as always! The "Fall" view off the deck was perfect as always. There were lotsa of laughs as we sat around the large dining table and finished the last night with several rounds of "semi-competitive" pool games. This weekend's group is all ready for a get-together for next year!

Wonderful Home! Convenient location! Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in the home, and we plan to stay again (and have already booked it for Dirt Fest '18). This house is very spacious, clean, comfortable and includes many nice amenities! There is a drop-in trail across the street to access the Allegrippis Mt. bike trails - very convenient! The house is also close to Severn Springs Campgound (in case you have friends who missed out on this house and are roughing-it on the ground in a wet and smelly tent). The owner's were friendly and quick to communicate with detailed messages (and fast with the deposit refund). No need to keep searching for a house, book this one.
