Not visible from the road, this 4000 square foot luxury log home is rustic and cozy but has every 21st century convenience. Chef's kitchen, private suite, 2 decks, all on 3 acres surrounded by hundreds of acres of private woods. It's amazing!
FROM PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE:
'Two cultural VIPs (from the Curtis Institute and Kimmel Center) bought this roomy log cabin in 2012 as an escape from city life. Then they gave it an overhaul, adding the perfect mix of vintage elements (an enameled wood stove from Norway) and new stuff (spa-like bathrooms, a private suite) for a gorgeous upscale-yet-cozy look. Lucky for you they're willing to share. Drive 20 minutes and you'll find Lake Nockamixon, antiques shops, and quaint enclaves like Frenchtown.'

Interaction with guests
Though I will not be on site during your visit, I am always available by phone or email to answer any questions
Other things to note
As you will see by mapping, the house is very conveniently located between NYC and Philadelphia, with central New Jersey also a snap
Just treat the house the way it looks like it's treated by others.
I've spent the past year fixing up my log house in Bucks County, and I hope you love it as much as I do. When I'm not up at the cabin, I live in a 200 year old colonial townhouse in Philadelphia.
