Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Brian O'Keefe owns Mooretown Sawmill 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. 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.

Why the Owner Chose Benton, PA, USA:
You can't beat this location if you are looking for a get-away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Cozy, quiet, rustic, yet local to any outdoor activities enough to keep you busy! Enjoy the outdoors all year long!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The cabin is fully equipped. No need to pack everything just to get away for a mountain vacation. All the amenities and yet you don't have to 'rough it'. Rickett's Glen state park hosts over 1 million visitors a year. Our property is minutes from the Park. Enjoy hiking over 22 waterfalls, kayaking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, hunting or just enjoying some good local BBQ and be minutes away from kicking back in front of the fireplace or out in the pavilion.
