This house resides on a peninsula called the Isle of Que. It is a two-bedroom charming home on the waterfront of the Susquehanna River and the home of Susquehanna University. The house has a fully furnished kitchen, waterfront deck, enclosed front porch, pool, outdoor fireplace, and hot tub.
This is a waterfront, historical property on the picturesque Isle of Que peninsula in the small town of Selinsgrove, PA. USA. It is a five mile isle along the Susquehanna River and Penn's Creek. The house is in a residential section of town, but is within walking distance of the downtown restaurants, bars, and shops.
The house is five minutes from Susquehanna University and twenty minutes from Lewisburg, home of Bucknell University. Sports packages, personal trainers, chefs, and a reflexologist are available upon request. The Weis center for the performing arts at Bucknell University hosts live, renowned musicians, artists, performance groups, and concerts.
