YOUR OWN PRIVATE RESORT...away from it all. Come renew yourself at this Beautiful Log Home getaway. Your morning may begin relaxing out on the porch with a hot cup of coffee, ease back on the glider bench, breathe in the 'mountain fresh' morning air, and listen to the sounds of nature or read your favorite book. Walk on the private marked hiking trail back to a rushing woodland creek and waterfall. Enjoy watching the constant stream of visitors at the bird feeders. Fill the wildlife feed tub (with some deer feed from the local Agway) and gaze through the family room wall of windows at the amazing nocturnal parade of deer and other animals appearing out of the woodland. After the days activities slip into the sunken hot tub for some deep relaxation. In the winter, fire up the wood stove and enjoy its cozy ambience while watching the snow fall.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: The owners live in a Northern suburb of Philadelphia, and began searching for the perfect property to build a weekend home in 2000, and finally finished construction and took occupancy the day after Thanksgiving in 2004. The property is named "The Fourth Woods" which reflects a childhood memory of the owner. He and his brothers grew up in farm land area filled with forests and fields, and it was their daily playground. They would venture out from home and explore through several large tracts of woodland for several miles until reaching the ''Third Woods'' as they called it, which was deep, mysterious and as far as anyone would go. Time passed, drivers licenses and other interests took hold and suburban sprawl took the woodland. Fast forward a few decades; hunting and walking though this 50 acre mountain property reminded the owner of those days and just how much he enjoyed those days and the outdoors. 'The Fourth Woods' seemed appropriate.
Why the Owner Chose Newfoundland, PA, USA:
As children, our family went on summer vacations to mountain lake areas such as Pennsylvania's Wallenpaupack, New Yorks Lake George and New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee. Fond memories of camping trips to Tobyhanna and Promised land State Parks, and visiting a friends house on Lake Wallenpaupack. We built our dream vacation home after a two year search for an ideal parcel of land. This one had all of the elements we were looking for; secluded and scenic, huntable woodland with a creek, and close to a large body of water that offered recreation. Not until after we moved in did it become apparent just how perfect our choice was as we kept discovering all that the surrounding small towns had to offer and the area within 30 minutes travel. We began implementing a wildlife habitat improvement program on the property in 2009 and clear cut two 1 acre deer crop fields and a 3 acre sanctuary. We are thinking about building a pond below the house just into the woods and are planning to begin a natural landscape plan for the open area surrounding the house sometime this year.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This log cabin (home) is used frequently by its owners and therefore is furnished and maintained at a much higher standard than a 'rental only' property. The size of the property at '50 acres' of woodland, is a feature almost completely unique that most vacation rental homes simply don't have. The time, effort, and expense put forth in decorating the interior were an endeavor of love and enthusiasm and we think our home reflects that. It is a wonderfully relaxing and quiet setting. You can feel so comfortable and secluded at the cabin yet you are only a short distance from so many things like shopping, dining and many forms of entertainment and of course Lake Wallenpaupack. There are several public boat accesses and beaches around the 15 mile long lake. Best of all when at our cabin, you don't have to be near the sounds and bustle of the big lake 24/7, only when you want to be.
