Come enjoy this 5 bedroom, 2 story home with a mountain feel. You can sit, relax, and roast chestnuts in the beautiful field stone fireplace on the main floor or bask in the warmth of the wood burning stove or play a game of pool on the lower level. Start your morning off right with coffee on the front deck, which spans the full front of the house, and end the evening in the enclosed patio off the dining room. Both provide wonderful views of the surrounding woods where the deer and turkey are your neighbors.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: During a family vacation to Big Bass in early 2005, my husband and I loved the community and decided to buy. So in November 2005 we purchased this lovely 5 bedroom home so it could fit our rather large family we each come from.

Why the Owner Chose Gouldsboro, PA, USA:
The house is within a 1000 feet of the clubhouse if you walk through the woods across from us. The community itself is wonderful and we are looking forward to many years there with our children as they grow up.
