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 Eagles Mere

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.

cozy house with beautiful view in lovely town

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to our hosts for a lovely stay -- the house is even better than the pictures depict and nicely located in that it is about a 20 minute walk through the neighborhood down to the lake and the ice cream shop. Eagles Mere is a lovely small town and well-situated close to two Pennsylvania treasures: Worlds' End State Park and Ricketts Glen -- there are plenty of hikes in both parks to keep you busy for a week.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Katherine! :-) Folks who don't know Eagles Mere owe themselves a visit. As a former Chautauqua community, it's completely different from any other Endless Mountains destination; it's one of only a handful of Chautauqua style communities outside New York State; and it's got an incomparable mountaintop setting.

This is our favorite MDW getaway and Bayard is a great host!

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely situated to give you great views of the Endless Mountains but still be a short walk to the Sweet Shop, Eagles Mere Imn for dinner and the lake. Also recommend the Barn Tabern for good bar food, just a short drive away. We’ve stayed here twice now and always happy with the state of the house when we arrive and the really clear, useful instructions from Bayard before we arrive. Our daughters and dog are all fans! We’ll be back next year!

Perfect location for nature lovers

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Windswept. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and we're looking for a primitive log cabin in a good location close to state parks and forests. This did not disappoint. It was neat and clean and we felt all our needs were adequately met. The owners are kind and willing to answer any questions we had. We brought all necessary items for a primitive weekend away but found the cabin was well stocked with what we needed. Hot water was ample and we never had a problem with heating. There is no cable and there is no a/c but we came during the fall foliage season and it was nice and cool and breezy. We enjoyed watching the wildlife from the hammock on the gazebo. The view was breathtaking and we saw many colors across the valley. A word about wildlife. It's definitely close. We had a 400lb black bear on the property our first evening here. The deer love to feed in the grass and there are majestic birds everywhere. We enjoyed this aspect. Don't miss High Knob Overlook for sunset watching and try out the Crestmont inn for dinner but I'd recommend only Friday or Saturday evening as they have rather a slower skeleton staff on the weekdays. If you need to catch a football game or "work remote" this really isn't the place. Come prepared to completely unplug from the world. Thank you Bayard and Judith for a wonderful weekend.

Owner's Response: We're delighted you had a great time! :-) We agree - High Knob Overlook is a must-see for sunsets, and the Loyalsock Canyon Vista also gives one a great view west through the gorge, no matter what the season.

Great place

Beautiful spot on the outskirts of Eagle Mere with great views of the mountains from all sides. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. We're planning to come again.

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.
