After 35 years, camp is gonna be for sale.........

We bought this camp from my Grandad back in 79 before we even had a house. Lots of memories here like my daughters first steps, lots of great hunts, great fishing and great times with family and friends but it'll be for sale soon.





Gonna shed a tear or two when this goes.....


The good news is that it's because we were lucky enough to find a new place thats only a half mile away thats gonna be "home" instead of camp! It's at the end of the road with nothing but the ANF out the back door for almost a mile! Tionesta Lake ia about a 15 minute walk out the back door too. It's on 2 acres, plenty of room inside and out, It's a 3 br house with huge great room with a fireplace and 20 ft vaulted ceiling and 2 loft bedrooms upstairs. There's a white pine on the property thats probably 4 ft diameter at the base that branches 6 ways out with massive branches that just begs to be made into a treehouse for the grandkids. Got lucky..... Found out it'd been empty for 6 years and called the guy. Made a great deal and closed on it this week.

Pics coming soon!

You're old camp is great. Can't wait to see the new one!!


Tionesta is just a fun area for a camp.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy JM

Front of the house



back of house and deck from the ANF side



Even has a garage




It's gonna get log siding, a new fireplace insert, and probably an addition on the front.

As soon as the youngest is done with school, we're moving to Tionesta!

It looked familiar. I'm sure I've passed that way a time or two.
