Property description

OLDE OWL'S NEST
The cabin is nestled in a small peaceful community of vacation cabins located in a mature growth forest along the scenic West Branch of the Susquehanna river. You must cross a circa 1873 covered bridge to get to the cabin. The cabin is just 20-30 feet from the river which affords many recreational activities such as tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or just sitting in a folding chair in the river enjoying the babbling water. There is a screened in porch riverside with a covered deck porch cabin side. Gas grill, fire pit, picnic table,lawn chairs are all available for your use. The cabin inside includes four rooms (about 1000 sq ft), namely a fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom, large front room with satellite TV,DVD, WiFi, home phone (814-277-6149)and fireplace, and large bedroom which sleeps up to 6 comfortably. The cabin is accented with rustic barn wood, has hardwood floors, and has been modernized for your enjoyment. Although the cabin has a modern feel you will be away from the rat race as cell phone coverage is limited.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a couple nearing retirement who enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Although many people feel that country life can be boring we truly enjoy it and know there are many from the city that want to escape to a simpler life even if just for a short time.

Why the Owner Chose Mahaffey, PA, USA:
We have enjoyed living in the region of central Pennsylvania known as the PA Wilds for most of our lives and would like to share the beauty and serenity of the area with others. There is just nothing like a peaceful rustic cabin nestled in the forest next to a scenic river to give a person the sense that life can be enjoyed apart from the rat race.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin is right next to a scenic river, it is in a mature hardwoods forest, area is very quiet and peaceful whether you sit by the flowing river or warming campfire, circa 1873 McGees Mills Covered Bridge must be crossed to get to cabin, screened in porch riverside is delightful,
