About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Defined by woodland seclusion and the natural beauty of its setting, this mountain retreat is an escape from the madding world. Multiple sliding doors and tall windows invite the outside in; a broad, wraparound deck provides plenty of outdoor living space. The recently renovated kitchen adjoins a screened porch; a wood-burning stove with stone hearth in the spacious common living area is the gathering spot on chilly evenings. In addition to two bedrooms and a full bath on the main level, the second-floor loft—accessed via a spiral staircase—has two more bedrooms and a second full bath

As part of Hemlock Farms, a gated community, the house offers a variety of recreational opportunities. Amenities include four lakes, a swimming pool (with lessons provided for children), tennis and racquetball courts, and trails for hiking. Outside the community there are venues for whitewater rafting, horseback riding and paintball. Winter recreation includes skiing, snowmobiling and tubing.
Just a half-mile from the house, the Steer Barn Recreational Center features an Olympic-size indoor pool, fitness center, hot tub, sauna, pool and ping-pong tables. A Teen Center offers chaperoned events for teenagers.

Wood for the fireplace MUST be purchased and is available at the following prices. $50 for 1/4 cord, $75 for 1/2 cord & $150 for a full cord. Please contact James Anderson (570 470-1059)in advance so that the wood can be delivered.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: Cindy Ramsay is both a realtor & mortgage banker in her work life. This home has been in her family for 30 some years. She remembers going there every summer learning to swim & play tennis. She & her family still use the house themselves from time to time.

Why the Owner Chose Hawley, PA, USA:
My mother originally chose this house as something different than the beach. She felt it had alot more activities to offer in the private setting of a gated community. We would bring all of our school friends up to the mountain house & teach them to swim, dive, ski & snowmobile. We have very fond memories of this house :)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The feeling of being in the middle of the woods yet still having the safety of a gated community is one of the unique features of this house. The house is perched high on a cliff with 3 sliding glass doors overlooking the view. The house is far away from the street so there is extreme privacy.
