Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: GySgt (retired 1983-2003) United States Marine Corps. Born, raised and currently reside in Western Pennsylvania

Why the Owner Chose Driftwood, PA, USA:
2 acres of spacious, flat land surrounded by beautiful beech, pine and walnut trees that provides ample shading on those hot, summer days; not to mention a fantastic fishing stream runs through the back of the property. The wildlife is amazing to see which includes Elk, deer, bear, turkey and much more. The cabin is close to all local attractions such as the Elk Visitor Center and local restaurants which include the Benezette Hotel; Old Bull Café; Benezette Store/Restaurant; Benezette Wines and much more.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Wildlife viewing right on the property such as Elk; Deer; Turkey and a wide variety of bird species. Step out of the back door onto a very large/spacious deck which is fantastic for entertainment and a spectacular view of the Pennsylvania Wilds and the sound of Hicks Run, which is a very short distance away, for some fantastic Trout fishing.
