About the Property

Log/Farm House/Cabin, 2 Bedrooms w additional sleeping area downstairs, 1 Bath

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.

This is a totally solar powered home - off the grid.... Remember this a step back in time.... There is no air conditioning however there is a gas fireplace that keeps it warm and toasty on those chilly nights and days. SORRY, NO HAIR DRYERS, CURLING IRON etc. Only appliances provided may be used.....

Accommodations include a master bedroom with full size bed and a double bedroom with two full size beds. There is also a twin size bed in the living room which provides extra sleeping accommodations and seating. Weather permitting there is a second story sleeping porch with a comfortable double chaise sofa bed. One upstairs bathroom with shower.

Up to date modern kitchen with gas range/oven, refrigerator/freezer and microwave. All cookware, dishware and utensils are provided.

Car: Recommended

While here, take the time to experience the quaint town of McConnellsburg, PA located between two spectacular mountain ridges at the base of the Tuscarora Mountain. Activities abound in the surrounding mountains. Attend the Annual Strawberry Festival in June or the Fall Folk Festival in October. Enjoy skiing at Whitetail , country auctions, golf, antiquing and flea markets, dining, fishing, outlets, Berkeley Springs Spa, Potomac River Activities, C&O Towpath, Raystown Lake, Cowan's Gap State Park, hiking and biking.

When you're ready to venture further...visit COWAN'S GAP STATE PARK where you can swim in the waters of a mountain lake, lounge on the sand, hike or bike on the lakeside trail, picnic, paddle boat, canoe or fish (ice-fishing in winter). Winter monthes offer skiing, snowboarding, and tubing at WHITETAIL SKI RESORT and fair weather golfing at WHITETAIL GOLF COURSE and GREAT COVE GOLF COURSE. In windy weather, take a drive to the LOOKOUT POINT on top of the mountain and watch HANG GLIDERS take the plunge.

We are: 20 minutes to HISTORIC FORT LOUDON/ HISTORIC MERCERSBURG & JAMES BUCHANAN BIRTHPLACE, 1 hour to GETTYSBURG and HARRISBURG's CIVIL WAR museum, approx. 2 hours to WASHINGTON, D.C., HARPER'S FERRY, and ANTIETAM BATTLEFIELD, and 2.5 hours to PHILADELPHIA.
