House Rules

It’s an old farm, with lots of wild conditions. Small children will require full supervision. Running of generators after 8pm, only in an emergency, Please and Thank You!. Pets must be under control. Communicate with me via call or text. I want to know as close as possible when you will arrive. I prefer you do not come to the house and remain self contained as much as is possible. I will meet with you each day or as you’d like, to give information and any help you might need, or want, to answer questions, etc. Please limit smoking. Be careful with fire. fire wood can be purchased locally. Do not cut, chop or damage trees or plants. There may me downed dead trees available to utilize, on a case by case basis, ask..

Location

Access Road Conditions: Dirt road farm lane access , has water bars so slow and easy does it. Does not require high clearance, Seasonally there is encroaching brush at sides of lane and possibly overhead. There may be mud seasonally, ask about current conditions. Usually the road is very good and dry with no low spots or puddles. This is the hilly curvy road part of Pennsylvania Ridge and Valley Province. Worth the turns and hills. There is a stretch of our lane share with an Amish Farm. Care and curtesy is always neighborly. the milk tanker truck uses this lane but we can manage the light traffic should there ever be any. Currently no low hanging trees Nature may change this without notice. Good communication with me is always a great idea. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Vehicles can be near, at, or next to the camper or remain hitched. Your choice completely.

    A beautiful secluded spot, remote and quiet, up a long and winding road. RangerForest is kind, generous, welcoming, helpful, and so knowledgeable not just about this area but about everything! Can’t wait to return.

    Was the perfect location and host but just not enough time to explore and soak in all there’s to offer. Greatly appreciated the incredible knowledge RangerForest had to offer and hope to visit again for a couple more days when I pass through again.

    This beautiful spot can be found at the end of a windy gravel road but is worth the effort. RangerForest is an knowledgeable host who gave us great insight about the nature of his idyllic spot. We will definitely be back!
