About Brian

Brian O'Keefe owns Mooretown Sawmill and Mooretown Timbers and Beams, LLC as well as several rental properties in the local mountain area. Born and raised in Mooretown, Brian had a dream of carving out the land and creating a successful sawmill.

His dream became a reality in 1987. Mooretown Mill is located in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Pa. near the unforgettable Rickett's Glen State Park. Here at Mooretown, we use local timber to produce a quality product. In 2015, we started our timber frame company.

That same product and craftsmanship can be found in all of Brian's rental properties producing a beautiful rustic feel. He takes great pride in the quality of his work and enjoys sharing that with others.

All of our renters will tell you that Brian will go out of his way to ensure your stay is unforgettable.

In his spare time (if any) he enjoys jaunts on his KTM motorcycle, and is an active member in many organizations dealing with educating the youth of PA in the logging industry; his passion and joy.

He lives at Mooretown with his Black Labs, Echo and Bear Cub.

Brian purchased this house in 2009

Great Cabin, Great Location and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Diamond Janes' Cabin and really enjoyed it’s charm & amenities. Wi-fi, indoor fireplace, outdoor grill, picnic table, outdoor fire ring, no view of other cabins and timber frame style were just some of the features that we appreciated...not to mention the proximity to SGL and Ricketts Glen. Owners were a pleasure to work with too. Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back.

The cabin was uniquely styled in cabin fashion. The accommodations were comfortable and detailed. Everything you could think of was available. The location was perfect for our hiking trips planned for our trip. We had a great time.

Excellent location and VERY nice

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is at the perfect location. It is centrally located to all the main points of interest in the area, just at the bottom of the mountain from Ricketts Glen State Park.

Do not be fooled by the somewhat rustic outside appearance. The inside is decorated beautifully. It is roomy, has beautiful knotty pine floors, walls, and ceilings. Completely furnished with wi-fi, television, and mp3 player. Words and pictures cannot adequately convey the beauty and appearance of the inside. You must see for yourself.

We met Brian and Stephanie. They are wonderful people and extremely accommodating.

I would highly recommend this cabin as a place to stay.
