About Bayard Brewin

We're family owners located in DC, originally from Ohio and Pennsylvania. Like a lot of working couples, we value those few weeks each year when we can stash the smartphones, turn on the Out of Office, grab our bathing suits / hiking shoes / a few good long books, and just rediscover each other in a place we love.

Bayard Brewin purchased this cabin in 1969

Why Bayard Brewin chose Endless Mountains

Our family of origin built this home nearly half a century ago, and has continually maintained and enjoyed it every year since. We first visited this village in the 1950s, returning to vacation here many times before finally deciding to build. Our summers there have defined key moments in our lives: sailing and swimming races, student theater productions at the Arts Center, trailblazing woods around the lake, hiking and camping in World's End and Ricketts Glen State Parks, and of course the town's annual Water Carnival. We love this place - and want to share it with couples and small families or groups who would savor a smarter, simpler, more intimate time away.

What makes this cabin unique

The reason for Windswept's name becomes clear the moment you drive down the ridge that leads to the house. On either side are teasers of the view to come - and then, shortly before arriving, the view unfurls on all three sides. Windswept itself is set in a wide meadow that used to be an apple orchard straddling both sides of this ridge - in fact, several of those trees still remain nearby the property. The home is a true log house from floor to ceiling, built from now-unavailable red cedar that still carries its original rich interior warmth. Away from the in-town bustle, you really get to enjoy a true mountain experience in space and pace: watching the area's rich assortment of birds and wildlife graze in the meadow and eat apples from the trees, deer as they pass across the property, and the occasional flock of grouse. The large private yard in back has its own gazebo and hammock, there's a deck that runs the length of the house and an open-air porch that runs its width - all of which makes it easy for you and your guests to stretch out, enjoy time with each other or a good book, play full-sized field games, grill together in the late afternoon, and toast a well-spent day at sunset. At night, the skies are incredibly wide, making stargazing and planet-spotting a regular ritual (even more so in August during the Perseid Meteor Shower). When you're ready to curl up, the fabulous fieldstone fireplace is a great setting for storytelling or reflection. A simple, cozy place of peace - we love it that way, and we think you will too.

A perfect place to start your life together

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was married here on a gorgeous summer day with views that stretched forever over the PA mountains. We held the ceremony in a tent on the large lawn. The guitarist played from the gazebo. The cozy home was used by the bridesmaids the night before and by the bride and groom on their wedding night. The porches were great for entertaining. The owner, Bayard, was beyond wonderful in accommodating us....we could not have asked for a nicer experience. We built a team of people from Eagles Mere or nearby to help us, and along with Bayard everyone was so kind and helpful.

The decor of the house is absolutely perfect and in keeping with a summer cabin. We found everything we needed and knew that if we needed anything else, the owner was very reachable via phone or text. A notebook answered all of our questions, both for our arrival and departure.

This home and property will always be dear to us as the place our daughter and her husband joyously celebrated a joining of hearts.

Fantastic place for a getaway from Philadelphia or New York.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend. Our daughters and our (well-behaved) Border Collie loved the big lawn to play on, we met some really nice people in town, became loyal customers of The Sweet Shop (three visits in three days,...), swam in the lake every day (from the boat launch less than a mile about due North from the house) and did some awesome hiking. Ricket's Glen and "Waterfall Wonderland" from midatlantichikes_com (we finished 8.2 miles in 7h'30m with an 8- and 10-yr old and of course the dog,... technical hike but not as hard as the description on the linked site made it sound). The gazebo was a hit with everyone, the view to the east of the Endless Mountains is magnificent, but I preferred watching the sunset from the back porch. Everything in the house was great.

The house was in very good shape and had board games and books (my 11-year old daughter was fascinated with Botany of Desire) to keep us entertained, and a DVD / video set up that actually made my family think I was smart after so many failures at other rental homes :). Being a one-story bungalow with no insulated attic, it gets hot during the day. Plan for it and open the windows on the East side on your way out, when you get home at the end of the day eat dinner outside, and by bedtime.... it's perfect. Somehow our ancestors survived without A/C,... you can too and enjoy this amazing place.

Thank you -- if we come back to Eagle's Mere we'll be sure to rent again.

Owner's Response: All great tips, thank you! :-) Our hilltop field location tends to be much breezier than rentals in the surrounding woods, so passive circulation works well except for the peak heat days. On those days, the strategy that's worked best for us is to leave the various ceiling fans on throughout the day, which helps ensure circulation between the upper and lower pockets of air during the day and keeps the temperature lower for evening. With the close of the 2016 season, we've upgraded the great room ceiling fan to a 70" unit, which is surprisingly quiet for a fan with such a large span.

Wonderful quiet cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Eagles Mere. My Dad, Uncle, and I went to the Forksville Bowhunters Festival and the cabin served as a short ride to this wonderful event. Clean, quiet, and relaxing with a wonderful responsive owner.

Our Stay at Eagles Mere

  • 5 of 5

Windswept Cottage was indeed all that (and more than) we expected.

From detailed instructions about arrival and departure protocol to spot on suggestions for our particular recreational activity interests (air/car musuems/bicycle routes/sunsets), we felt very well supported and encouraged to enjoy Windswept's features and amenities.

The cottage is a bit removed from downtown (village, really) of Eagles Mere, but we wanted to be a bit removed from the center of things.

If you need a quite, peaceful respite, we sincerely recommend this home.
