Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I am a wife and mother of three active boys who love to fish and kayak in the creek. I am also a school counselor in one of the local schools. I am originally from Levittown, outside of Philadelphia. I attended Neshaminy Maple Point. I am an HGTV addict which inspired me to take this "too rustic " cabin and make it beautiful. I attended Bloomsburg University, Indiana University, Bucknell University, and completed my doctorate at Liberty University. I want all my guests to have a relaxing, comfortable stay.
Why the Owner Chose Mifflinburg, PA, USA:
This vacation home is named the 'Bear Den' for a reason. I purchased this property and had it completely renovated. I walked by it everyday as I walked my dogs along the creek and always thought about the lovely view it had. It was an "unkept" cabin that no one had ever lived in it. The story of the home is that it was built to be college housing at a college in Virginia. It was prefabricated but it didn't make it off the truck properly and the college refused it. A gentleman in Central PA purchased it and put it in it's current location. He began to work on it but could not finish due to a shoulder injury. So, unfortunately, no one got to take advantage of this home and lot. I called him and asked if he wanted to sell and he did. We named it the 'Bear Den' since during it's many years of being uninhabited, a mother bear and her cubs hibernated in the crawl space underneath. She surprised some men working on the road one winter. Now her story is legend around the neighborhood. She is still around but don't worry, she hasn't used that space in years and there is a now a door securing the crawl space. We had to name it the 'Bear Den' since she was the first true occupant. I had everything torn out down to the studs including the insulation and added a second floor loft to take advantage of the sites. The layout is simple, open and comfortable
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is a lovely country setting along a lazy wide creek in a location with interesting sites to visit. The water view and sounds can be enjoyed on the front porch or by taking a walk along the road. The creek brings wildlife such as beautiful blue herons and eagles. It has a relaxing feel but still includes modern conveniences like wifi. Come and sit on the large front porch overlooking Penns Creek.
