About Charlie Schaefer

I spent my summers from the time I was 2 at the property until graduating from college. My Dad would send my Mom, Brother and I here as soon as school ended.

When I moved to Philadelphia, We came on weekends where my children who got to enjoy some of the same things that I did growing up. They learned to Ski at the local Ski areas and to enjoy some of the outdoor activities

I came back to live here in 2008 to take care of my Mom in her final years and decided to stay and fix the place up. My business as a consultant affords me the pleasure of working from home, when not at a Client's site

Charlie Schaefer purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Charlie Schaefer chose Pennsylvania

I purchased the house from the estate in 2010, added a three car garage and apartment in 2012 that is connected to the house at the end of the back porch with a separate entrance, which I live in. I completely gutted the original house and renovated it with the goal to use for family, friends and as a vacation rental that was completed in April of 2014. It is a great place to get away from the city as we did for years. Less than 3 hours from NYC and Philadelphia

What makes this farmhouse unique

The winter sports and summer outdoor activities make the location a great place to get away for a weekend to a week. The remodeling has all the modern conveniences of your home.

ATV Friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th time we have stayed here. We have a great time and that is why we keep coming back. Great place to ride with plenty of trails to explore. Charile is extremely nice and checks in to make sure your stay is going well. The house is well kept. Other than food, drinks & bikes not much you will need. We will be back for sure. Met our expectations and more.

Perfect spot for the whole family & ATV riders!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay in this beautiful home! The house has more than enough room for a full family to enjoy. The property is perfect for those looking to ride ATVs, plenty of trails and areas to explore. Very large lawn as well. There is a really nice patio where you can have outdoor meals and relax in the sun and a great fire pit to enjoy each night. The front porch was the perfect spot to escape the sun when it became to hot, without having to head inside. The house is on a fairly bush road but is within a short driving distance to town for food shopping, ice cream, shopping, or going out for a bite to eat which we found to be extremely convenient. Charlie is such a nice person and we really enjoyed talking with him. We would definitely return!

Great ATV riding!!!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our 3 sons and their friends to this farmhouse and property for some dirt bike and ATV riding. Wow!!! They had an awesome time !!! It was a beautiful home, we had everything we needed to have a memorable weekend the kids will not forget. Plenty of space for the 7 of us. Charlie is super friendly and very easy to work with -- we hope to vacation there again in the future.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the experience we had at this property. There was entertainment in every corner. My husband and I went spent 4 days here along with our 3 children, and not a single one felt bored. The house itself was very neat and clean, and well equipped, with a high-tech kitchen acompanied with a coffee maker, microwave, toaster, refrigerator, and much more. The living room is exceptionally large with a fireplace and a large TV with an amazing sound system. The bathrooms are well equipped as well. Each bedroom is spacious with a TV in each one. We spent 75% of our stay outdoors, because it's such a large property. We went on hiking trips and ocassionaly stumbled across a herd of deer. We also went sledding. The owner of the property lives right next door, but it seemed like we were alone. He was always willing to help us with anything and provided us with the info we needed. It was truly a great stay and we are definitely willing to come again soon.

Perfect weekend for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better place for our NYE weekend with our family and some friends. The house was lovely and had everything you would need and more! We had planned on going to the ski slopes with the kids but never left the house since we had everything we would have found at the slopes right in the front yard! The kids enjoyed sliding down the hill and the adults took the snow mobiles out for a beautiful view of the property. Charlie was very nice and helpful. Thank you for sharing your home and we plan on returning again!
