The first floor has a bedroom with a full-size bed and a half bath, and on the second floor there are 3 bedrooms and two full baths; a master bedroom (and bath) with a queen-size bed, another with a full-sized bed and one with two twins. Those three bedrooms are also furnished with comfortable futons for relaxing and extra sleeping space (2 doubles & 1 single). The main bathroom on the second floor is very spacious. Bed linens and towels are provided. To enjoy the outdoors and views there are 4 porches/decks. The rear porch is covered and is 25 feet in length at ground level. It's a great place to sit and relax while grilling dinner! From there you enter the home's mud room on the main floor. The front deck is also covered and is 46 feet in length. This deck can be accessed from both the living and dining rooms on the main floor & is furnished with an outdoor dining table & a number of comfortable chairs. The third outdoor space is a 10 foot open deck off the master bedroom on the 3rd floor. The living room, dining room, kitchen and mud room are all very large, which provides comfortable space for a large group. The kitchen is completely equipped with a gas range, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and cooking utensils/dishware. Coffee and a variety of cooking spices are provided for your convenience. We also provide minimal complimentary paper products (napkins, paper towels & toilet paper) to start you off on your stay, but you should plan to buy/bring extra with you. The living room is furnished with large, comfortable, pillow-back sofas and a chair. The love seat and over sized chair recline for complete relaxation while reading or watching TV. There is Dish Satellite and Internet service with a flat screen TV & DVD player for evening entertainment. The master bedroom on the second level also has a TV and DVD player.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Hi I'm John, this is my family; Kay my wife, daughters Jessica and Sarah, and son John Michael. I am the 5th generation of my family to own this land. This is the 3rd piece of the puzzle since my mother had to sell all of it back in 1980. My wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to retire and purchase these properties back. We rebuilt the old farmhouse just down the road in 2008 and acquired the property next door (Lusch Acres Retreat) in 2010. We are excited about sharing the beauty and peacefulness that 'Ringer Hill' and the Lusch Acres properties afford our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Dushore, PA, USA:
Sullivan County is considered the 'Gem' of the Endless mountains. At 2,100 ft of elevation and heavily forested you enjoy the cool summer nights. Also, there are only 6,000 full time residents in the whole county. The mountainous terrain, streams, lakes, State parks and Forest has retained all of the beauty and peacefulness I remember as a small boy growing up on 'Ringer Hill'
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Lusch Acres Lodge has a private setting away from the main highways (Rte 87, 487 & 220) but is centrally located to the county as a whole so it is very convenient to the many attractions the county has to offer and it is also only a 5 minute drive into Dushore for groceries, church, and restaurants. So watch the Deer, Turkeys or Bear from the decks or head out on one of many adventures.
