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.


The Bradfords

Larry and Dana Bradford purchased this house in 2005

Why Larry and Dana Bradford chose Pennsylvania

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) .

No surprises....

  • 5 of 5

We loved finding this lovely home to be exactly as described and pictured. Thank-you for making your very warm, clean , and welcoming home available for others to enjoy. We were two couples with two pickup trucks and two boats which fit just fine in your ample driveways! Two unexpected good surprises were finding a wonderful piano and hymn book and seeing a black bear run into the wooded area in the backyard! We will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed the bears and piano as much as we do. Now, next time, you have to get the bears to dance to the piano.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

It was just what we needed. I just couldn't get over the view from the deck. The weather was not great but I still sat outside with my coffee and buddled up. It's been one week since I was there and I am ready to return. Larry was very easy to contact and work with. Just can't say enough. It was wonderful.

Life is good at Alligrippis Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. The home is gorgeous, the views are spectacular. Our favorite amenity is the back deck fireplace. The owner keeps the home meticulous and makes improvements each year.

The location is perfect - direct access to the trails and a 3 or 4 minute drive to the Marina.

We have stayed at this beautiful home the past 4 years.

Beautiful home with great views and clownto the MTB trails.

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and spacious. Lots of room for my party of 5. The back deck is great and the kitchen is large enough for cooking big meals. We were there for mountaining biking and the trails are literally across the street. Would absolutely stay again.

Great place.

Home was beautiful and you felt at home as soon as you walked through the door. Plenty of room to park your boat in driveway and close to 7 points marina. The Bradfords are wonderful people to deal with and i want to thank them for sharing their beautiful house .

First Class Property and Owners

  • 5 of 5

If you want to escape in style, this property is for you. The layout of the house is excellent. The front and back porches are quite large. The view out back is wonderful. Stunning sunsets over the mountains make for a great finish to each day. The Seven Points Marina and State Park Beach area are down the hill about 2 miles. The swimming area is large and well maintained. Enjoy.
