What was it like to live in rural Pennsylvania over 100 years ago? Arriving at THE FARM HOUSE you see the old hand operated well pump and the fresh smell of trees and flowers with a welcoming double deck sleeping porch. As you approach the door you see the distinct axe marks scribed into the ageless hand hewn timbers, and the chinking skillfully placed between the logs. You enter through the kitchen door and immediately you are greeted with the old wood fired cook stove. Sitting at the kitchen table, cast iron cookware hang from nails driven into rough sawn beams, you can almost see and smell the cook preparing a big hearty farm family meal. Soon you find yourself almost living in another time and another age. At THE FARM HOUSE, you'll find it easy to visualize life over 100 years ago in Pennsylvania.
A few steps through the woods lead you to the pond. We invite you to stroll the grounds, explore the 100 acres, and enjoy the fresh country air. There is a picnic area with outside fire pit.
