I love the Endless Mountains, it is one of the most beautiful places around PA to relax. The people here are friendly and you will love the snow shining like glittering gold dust. My children grew up here. Their days were filled with the richness of all the important things that matter most in life! Like the little things we take for granted, like walking barefoot in the snow, hiding themselves in the dry leaves in the fall, picking apples, blueberries and making pies, camping in the summer heat, watching the Mama Bear playing with her young cubs by the mailbox, watching the Snow White Fox strolling by like he owned our place and most certainly did. Seeing the White Teal Deer dressing our beautiful landscape.There are some wonderful little plays performances in the area that the wonderful people of Thompson, PA worked very hard to put on. They give so much of themselves to help the community and entertain everyone passing by. We have a fabulous small Antique shop here and the discoveries will mesmerize you. Here you find many simple things to do and be at peace away from the big city hustle. Time for a stroll by the trails then hop on a real hay ride by the back roads. See the sunset and feel the cool breeze of the evening then settle down with a wonderful book by the sunroom glow as the sun sets. This is one of the best things in life. So come and join us and will we tell stories long & short funny ones and sad ones too. You can create your own stories here true ones and fiction just for fun! Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you each day to the fullest!
Juanita David purchased this farmhouse in 1984
My Daughter was 4 years old and we visit PA on vacation passing by the house my daughter ask to stop. She wanted to see if the house was for sale and she fell in love with the house. As we were leaving she said to me very softly, “Mami some day we will live here." As we were leaving, she blew a kiss from doorway and destiny gathered us here. We have live here for 31 years with many adventures. Sad and happy ones too and I frankly wouldn't change a thing. The many people we met here, the countless stories, places and people now gone. Yes, what an education we acquired coming from New York City. It was extremely an experience of a lifetime! I know one thing, I Loved every minute of it! I thank God, I was given this opportunity in my lifetime, to live in such a beautiful tranquil place!
This is called God's Country, due to its natural beauty or so I was told. When I first got here from New York City, and they weren't joking -- you call on "God" here a lot, when the snow is 4 feet tall, and you are running out of wood for your stove but you survive. When you lose the electricity due to a power outage but it is repaired, when your pond freezes over and you have to carry water for a few animals you enjoy having on your land, when you go down the mountainside on your own or when you go hunting then your freezing looking for that one Deer that you need to have. When you get up in the morning and the landscape is painted by the "Hand of God" and the sunshine! You see the wild turkeys in your backyard, oh yes this is God's Country! The most beautiful place in the Universe! You will see the waterfall freeze with multi rainbow colors on them like a wonderful masterpiece painted by God almighty himself! This is what I call peace and heaven on earth.
My friends and I (A group of 6) stayed in Juanita's home for a weekend ski trip at Elk Mountain. We picked the home because of its relatively low cost, spaciousness, and proximity to Elk. We were not disappointed. Here are some of the highlights about the house that we really appreciated:
1) The beds were very comfortable. There were 6 beds in the house, so each person got their own bed (has never before happened on one of these trips). These were not beds that the owner purchased and placed in the home for the sake of saying they had X beds in the house on the house description. Plenty of blankets, towels, and linen to go around. I slept like a baby on mine, and was very well-rested after a day of skiing. I heard similar reviews from my friends.
2) The kitchen was fully stocked. There was almost every tool and cooking utensil that we could have asked for in the kitchen. Plenty of utensils, plates, bowls, and cups to go around as well. We fully utilized the outdoor grill during our time there. I think the built-in igniter did not work, but this was not a problem as there were plenty of lighters in the house. We did not end up using the stove in the living room, but it looked like it could have been fun.
3) Plenty of parking outside. We brought 4 cars and all four fit just fine. The drive to Elk is about 20 minutes.
Probably one of the best parts about our stay was the simplicity. The cleanup and checkout operation were very smooth and minimal on our part. We simply had to leave any used towels in the laundry baskets, take out the trash, turn off the lights, and make sure the bed sheets were turned up when we left. Extremely simple. Thank you Ron, Cathy, and Juanita! We'd definitely rent out the house again if/when we return.
First time using VRBO, Ron and Cathy were great at making sure our stay was perfect. Though the road was a little muddy, the house was nice and clean (despite the wasps). Our grand kids Loved the snacks that you provided, that was a nice touch!
Thanks for making our stay so comfortable!
House would be great for all renters looking for a quiet house up in the mountains. The house has plenty of beds for everyone to sleep comfortably. There is not much near the house but a great view and under a 20 minute drive to the mountain.
We stayed at this house over the long weekend for a skiing trip to Elk Mountain. Our group of 9 adults and 2 kids had plenty of room to sleep and relax. Everyone noted how clean the house was. The owners were very courteous to let us check in and check out at our convinient times. The kitchen is very well stocked, even had small necessities like salt, pepper, plastic wrap etc. lots of utensils. Beds are comfortable with quality sheets.
Cell phone coverage is not good in the area but with good wifi in the house we have able to use our phones.
Overall great great experience. Thank you management and owners for having us. Will definitely come back.
This house worked very well for us--four couples staying for a long weekend. The house was clean and well furnished. We appreciated the generous check in and check out times. We took advantage of the close proximity to the rail trail for some walking and cross country skiing. It's a nice, quiet, peaceful setting.
My group (8 of us, ranging from 25-32, mostly males) stayed at this home while participating at Aftershock at EMR (paintball game) and we absolutely loved it! The house was big enough that pretty much all of us had our own beds and fit comfortably without being on top of each other and everything worked great! The home definitely has its own beautiful mountain feeling interior, so it was refreshing for a bunch of city folks from all over the east coast like we were! Filled with some much character, it truly felt like a home away from home! Thank you for opening your home to us!
