Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: New Yorker, writer and editor, Buck Hill lover!

Why the Owner Chose Buck Hill Falls, Mountainhome, PA, USA:
Spacious but manageable, great for small family and friends, not a cavernous party house. It's quiet yet close to everything. Everyone is friendly and helpful. There's nothing NOT to recommend it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Proximity and ease of travel to and from Buck Hill are a huge plus; recreation right out the door; being able to walk to town for lunch, a quart of milk or a chocolate-covered pretzel at Callie's. The hiking is great -- but so is just walking around Buck Hill looking at houses. It's truly an old world getaway.
