About Cindy Arbogast Royer
I was born and raised in Selinsgrove. I graduated from Selinsgrove High School in Business, SU with a degree in Psychology & Pittsburgh Tech school of Travel. I lived in this house for 27 years before I inherited the family farm, 3 miles up the creek. Previous owner of this house purchased a log cabin from Snydertown and assembled it up against and and opened it up. We closed it in 2006 and make 2 independent houses and called themThe Colonial House/Cozy Cabin. I live with my husband on the farm where I keep 90 laying hens. I sell organic, pastured eggs from March to December from my farm where customers can meet the chickens. My chickens are Americanas, Rhoad Island Reds & Leghorns, so my eggs are green, brown and white mixed. Curt and I eat organic & are practicing vegans. I managed BOSCOVS TRAVEL for 29 years until I became an outside agent in May 2016. I love my life & love to travel.
Cindy Arbogast Royer purchased this House in 1982
Why Cindy Arbogast Royer chose Selinsgrove
I first entered this house in 1970. It was owned by a married couple, both music professors, Grace & Jim Boeringer, he at SU and she at BU. I found myself a guest in the home & was awestruck by the uniqueness of the house. I loved it so much by the end of my visit I said I would buy it should it become available. I bought the house in 1982 and lived in it until 2010. 28 years. It was built by Daniel Ott who was a famous local resident who walked from this house in Selinsgrove to out west where he became a cook on the transcontinental railroad. He befriended Buffalo Bill Cody at that time and buffalo/bison was on the menu. Buffalo Bill Cody, never forgot his friend & stayed at this house in 1913 while performing his wild west show in Lewistown, PA. He was in a parade in Sunbury where he and Daniel Ott sat in the driver seat of his stagecoach . is beautifully situated on the western bank of the Silvery Susquehanna, whose broad expanse and emerald isles make it a thing of perennial charm. €| Penn's Creek flows through its midst. Verdant slopes, beau- tiful hills and a majestic mountain are within its purview.
What makes this House unique
The house is Timber & Beam construction. It is light and airy and the big colonial windows brings in the light like you would not believe. The front and back of the house are like day and night. From the back porch there are beautiful views of the lawn, trees and creek with it's many water fowl and an Eagle nest in a tree on the Cozy Cabin side.. There is a picnic table and charcoal grill for your convenience. It is quiet and peaceful any time of the day or night. In the spring, summer & fall you could open the bedroom windows & let the night sounds & the fresh air put you to sleep. There is a screen door on the back door. The front of the house has the traffic sounds of the main road. There is a porch swing on front porch where you can watch fireworks anytime from mid June to August and especially during July 4th week. The development of about 50 houses .5 miles away are in big competition with each other during the summer. I lived here for 27 years and moved to the farm in 2010. When I walked in this for the first time in 1970 at the age of 22, I announce that I would buy it if ever for sale. So 13 years later, I did exactly that. Buffalo Bill Cody stayed here in1913 he was friends with Daniel Ott, a man who was born in the house in 1848.

Great house to stay for a visit to Knoebel's
My wife and I stayed here for a week in July to visit Knoebels with our 3 kids and 2 dogs. We loved staying here, and will likely make a tradition of it. Although the weather was horrible all week, with torrential rain every night, we were still able to sit out on the porches and enjoy the rain and the thunder.
Pleased with our stay
We were pleased with our stay. The property was just as depicted in the pictures and was conveniently located to many things that we wanted to do. Selinsgrove was a nice, little town and we spent some free time there. Property owner was nice and accommodating; would recommend.
