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) .

Loved our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful well maintained house with everything you need for a relaxing getaway! I stayed her with 7 other friends looking for a relaxing weekend to get away and catch up. The house had everything we needed with plenty of room. We loved the great outside fireplace attached to the house. It was cozy to sit by the fire and relax. The sunsets are beautiful from the deck! This property is located close to the marina and many beautiful hiking trails. We definitely can't wait to stay at this house again. The house has linens provided which is a nice benefit along with firewood to use. That was a huge convenience. Larry was very helpful with coordinating our last minute arrangements and we can't wait to stay here again! Thank you for sharing you house and helping create great memories for me and my friends!!

Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

Very pretty place in a very pretty location. Beds and inside and outside furniture are well thought out and very comfortable. Kitchen is large and has pretty much all of the gadgets and pots and pans you could want. Place was very clean when we arrived. Having sheets and towels is a plus. Gas fireplace inside was great for the cool evenings and mornings. Wood fireplace on back deck made a great place to hang and talk. Bike trails across the road. Great hiking. Lake is beautiful and Huntington with great grocery stores is very close. On a low traffic road. Can't say enough good things about the rental and have no bad things. Rent it, you won't regret it.

Nice-up to date- cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week of vacation at this rental property.

All information was accurate and we hope to revisit in the future.

Nice quiet setting. Our young children enjoyed the beach at the marina.

Large kitchen for eat in meals. Linens/towels/washing machine alleviated some packing and allowed me to stay on top of our laundry.
