About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps

This unique mid-century home offers four seasons of enjoyment on the beautiful Susquehanna River in Wyoming County. Situated on 2.5 acres with over 100' on the river. This modern home is not your typical Pocono or Endless mountain cabin, but a stylish retreat for those with more contemporary tastes.

Stepping into the home is like no other in the area. The flat roof, broad eaves, and stucco exterior set it apart from its neighbors. From the foyer, you can see the expansive windows in the open-plan Living and Dining affording stunning views of the lawn and the river beyond. This room is professionally decorated with furniture from the construction period (1951) and as well as with modern pieces that work with the clean lines of the house. A wood burning fireplace with a handcrafted cherry mantle anchor the main seating group. Dining for 6-8 around the teak table complete this space.

The cozy kitchen conveniently located off of the entrance and living room has newer appliances but retains the charm of the original birch cabinets. Seating for two at the breakfast table.

Off of the foyer are two generous bedrooms each with a queen-size bed. The sleeping quarters are again decorated with a mix of period and new furniture to work well with the clean lines of the rooms. The tile bath with marble floor has a unique glassblock wall in the tub/shower--innovated design for 1950 rural house.

At the back of the house is a covered bluestone terrace with table for 6 and a gas grill. People visit for the use and view of the river, but the large, well-tended yard is draw for games and sports.

From Spring until the Fall, the Susquehanna River provides activities from swimming in the warm water in summer to kayaking and canoeing (the house has two kayaks and one 15' canoe) as well as fishing (PA license required--no fishing equipment provided). The fishing is great as evident by all of the summer bass boats. A boat launch is located a few blocks away for the use of your own personal water-craft. The drama of the Fall foliage abounds in this valley of the Endless Mountains.

The fun doesn't stop in the mild weather, but continues in the winter. The cozy warm house is located about 30 minutes from the recently renovated Montage Mountain Ski Resort and a little farther North for Elk Mountain--Both representing the Best Skiing in Pennsylvania!
