About John & Kay Krakoski
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.
John & Kay Krakoski purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2012
Why John & Kay Krakoski chose Dushore
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'
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
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.

We loved the lodge. Everything was perfect, and it was a joy to meet John and Kay, the owners. Beautiful local hikes at Ricketts Glen and World's End state park. Well stocked house with games, books, and even some movies. We certainly hope to stay again.
Spacious and Comfortable
We enjoyed our stay. John & Kay are great. We love the mountains and wildlife in the area.
Property was very accommodating for 8 adult guests. Gorgeous area to hike and explore.
This was the perfect accommodation for our family. The house was spacious, clean and the location was perfect. Enjoyed watching deer from the front porch and roasting marshmallows by the fire pit. A great place to rent again!!
