About Charlie Schaefer
I spent my summers from the time I was 2 at the property until graduating from college. My Dad would send my Mom, Brother and I here as soon as school ended. When I moved to Philadelphia, We came on weekends where my children who got to enjoy some of the same things that I did growing up. They learned to Ski at the local Ski areas and to enjoy some of the outdoor activities I came back to live here in 2008 to take care of my Mom in her final years and decided to stay and fix the place up. My business as a consultant affords me the pleasure of working from home, when not at a Client's site
Charlie Schaefer purchased this Farmhouse in 2010
Why Charlie Schaefer chose Pleasant Mount
I purchased the house from the estate in 2010, added a three car garage and apartment in 2012 that is connected to the house at the end of the back porch with a separate entrance, which I live in. I completely gutted the original house and renovated it with the goal to use for family, friends and as a vacation rental that was completed in April of 2014. It is a great place to get away from the city as we did for years. Less than 3 hours from NYC and Philadelphia
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The winter sports and summer outdoor activities make the location a great place to get away for a weekend to a week. The remodeling has all the modern conveniences of your home.

My fiancé and I, along with three other couples, took a riders weekend up by Charlie. The property was awesome and riders from all levels had a good time. The house was beautiful and well stocked, twenty minutes from a Super Walmart, and one minute from a hometown restaurant. Charlie was welcoming, showed us around the whole property and answered all or questions and then some! Great experience- we hope to be back next year :)
Great weekend getaway!
Charlie made us feel right at home from the moment we got there. The house was beautiful and well taken care of! We rented ATVs and had a blast on the trails! Would highly recommend and will definitely be back to visit soon!!
Glad you had good weather and a good time. Thanks for leaving the house in great shape. Looking forward to seeing you guys again
As always, a great time was had by my family and myself. My son and I did a lot of riding while my wife and daughter were to do a bit of relaxing. Home was clean (spotless) and the grounds are well maintained. Great place to ride.
Thanks for the kind words. Hope to see you all again!
Very Nice country side house
The house is small but very comfortable, clean, exceptionally equipped, a lot of natural light inside and cosy. It is 25 minutes away from Elk mountain by nice weather.
Charlie is very nice and welcoming.
The only minus is the road next to it, but not very busy street.
We recommend it . Thanks Charlie.
Happy that you had good weather for the skiing, Hope to see you again
Lovely Cozy Place with the extra Thrill of getting to ride ATV's on the property!
We had an amazing weekend at this cozy house. It was easy to get to and the house was lovely and clean and updated with all the comforts of home. We have stayed at many rental houses but I have to say that it was so nice to be in one that supplied all the amenities like liquid soap, shampoo, paper towels, coffee, tea, tons of spices and so much more. We were so lucky we got to ride the ATV's which was great fun and then it snowed overnight and we got to ride the snowmobiles the next day, so amazing!! I haven't seen any other rental house that offers these rentals right on the property, it couldn't be more convenient! Charlie, the owner of the house was so helpful and pleasant and was there to make sure we had everything we needed. We highly recommend this rental property.
Thanks for the great review! You were the first to use the ATV and Snowmobiles in the same weekend! Hope to see you again and thanks for leaving the house in great shape.
Charlie's beautifully renovated farm house was perfect for our quick holiday ski getaway.
Easy 20 minute drive to Elk Mtn, plenty of good local options for dinners out also. We cooked our country breakfasts in the fully stocked kitchen. We did not take advantage of the network of rolling trails on the property, but could see that being tons of fun hiking, riding quads or snowmobiling. Charlie was helpful and accessible for any questions we had and tips for getting the most out of our stay. Thanks again Charlie!
Thanks so much for the kind words! Happy that you had some good ski conditions. Elk has excellent snowmaking that keeps a good base on the trials even when the weather is not optimum. Hope to see you and the family again.
