About Brian

Brian O'Keefe owns Mooretown Sawmill as well as several rental properties in the local mountain area. Born and raised in Mooretown, Brian had a dream of carving out the land and creating a successful sawmill.

His dream became a reality in 1987. Mooretown Mill is located in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Pa. near the unforgettable Rickett's Glen State Park. Here at Mooretown, we use local timber to produce a quality product.

That same product and craftsmanship can be found in all of Brian's rental properties producing a beautiful rustic feel. He takes great pride in the quality of his work and enjoys sharing that with others.

All of our renters will tell you that Brian will go out of his way to ensure your stay is unforgettable.

In his spare time (if any) he enjoys jaunts on his KTM motorcycle, and is an active member in many organizations dealing with educating the youth of PA in the logging industry; his passion and joy.

He lives at Mooretown with his Black Labs, Echo and Bear Cub.

Brian purchased this house in 2009

Why Brian chose Northeastern Pennsylvania

You can't beat this location if you are looking for a get-away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Cozy, quiet, rustic, yet local to any outdoor activities enough to keep you busy! Enjoy the outdoors all year long!

What makes this house unique

The cabin is fully equipped. No need to pack everything just to get away for a mountain vacation. All the amenities and yet you don't have to 'rough it'.

Enjoy hiking over 22 waterfalls, kayaking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, hunting or just enjoying some good local BBQ and be minutes away from kicking back in front of the fireplace or out in the pavilion.

Great property, great management!

The cabin was beautiful and very conveniently located next to Ricketts Glen. We would have loved to stay longer! This was our first time with VRBO and everything worked out perfectly. Would definitely rent from Brian again!

Fabulous cabin, amazing woodwork inside

  • 5 of 5

Beams, beams, beams and bark-edged paneling with antique sawyer and milling tools mounted on the walls. Plenty of space and well-equipped for self-catering. Actually didn't spend much time in the cabin because of its close proximity to Ricketts Glen and Lake Jean. Brian provided alot of free firewood and we used the firepit every night after grilling dinner in the outdoor kitchen. Thanks for a memorable stay.

One of a Kind!!!

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Stephanie(owners) take care of EVERYTHING for you! Great communication and very accommodating! They own the saw mill up the road and remodeled this house with their own hand crafted woodwork. The cabin is one bedroom, but don't let this discourage you, the cabin itself is VERY roomy. More than enough room for 6-8 people. The great room is HUGE and just out of this world. The craftsmanship, detail, and history instilled into this cabin will wow you! Fully stocked kitchen, stocked firewood, stocked wood for the fireplace, all linens/towels included. What more could you ask for. It's right off the main road and easy to get to everything! I was only able to spend two nights, but we'll be going back to stay for much longer next time!
