Relaxing rural farm-home at the foot of the scenic Blue Ridge mountains in S. Central PA. Nearby Amish run greenhouses offer a pleasant afternoon of browsing and shopping for all things growing during most of the year. There are Civil War historical areas to visit in nearby Chambersburg and Shippensburg; Caledonia and Cowans Gap State Parks offer hiking and swimming options as well as some close by local hiking opportunities on DCNR public land. Chambersburg has a number of arts and crafts venues, lots of antique shops and a nice selection of restaurants & coffee shops. Portions of the Appalachian Trail are within a 30-40 min drive.

Ray & I are first and foremost servants of our Lord Jesus Christ. That may seem odd to you to put in an "about us" post, but it is pivotal in who we are. We love to share the life and resources that God has given us, and are glad you can make use of this place to stop over on your travels. Ray has taken a part time job after retirement, and I spend time caring for flower beds, vegetable gardens and grandchildren­čśŐ. We have 4 adult children and grandchildren who we are very proud of, and we spend time with them as we can. We are not usually recreational RVers (there always seems to be too much to do here at home and with our families in the summer) but we do use our Camper when we head to warmer climes in the winter to volunteer with Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS). We are glad you could stop and visit with us, however briefly. If there are flowers blooming, perhaps I can pick a bouquet for you to take with you. Blessings to you and safety as you travel. Ray and Mim

    Were are traveling throughout PA at the moment and Roxbury Swan Pond was a wonderful stop. We stayed for a few days and loved every moment. There is also a dollar general right next door. They have electric for $10 a night and water is free. Thanks for the stay!

    We were in need of a place on our drive back home to NY and they were kind enough to accept a last minute same day request. Ray met and showed us where to park. First time I slept thru the night in awhile. Saw the cutest horse and some long horned cows. As we were preparing to head out Ray appeared and was kind enought to show us the swan pond. Beautiful place and great people. We will definitely be back

    Ray met us at the house and had us follow him over to the church to dump. Dump was $6 which we paid the next day since they were closed when we dumped. We parked next to concrete pad and had water and electric right there. This was a perfect stay. We visited Gettysburg for a day, which is not enough. You will need at least 2 full days there.

    We stayed behind the house and were kept company by longhorn cattle on the other side of the fence! Such a lovely stay.
