About Crystal and Blair Wilson

I originally grew up in NJ and spent summers on the farm. I moved to Colorado in the 80s and have returned over the years to help my parents take care of the place. Now my wife Crystal and I are in charge of keeping the place going. We run another vacation rental in Ward CO, high in the Rockies at 9000 ft. We also own the High Country Hemp Co which produces hemp seed oil body products.

Crystal and Blair Wilson purchased this farmhouse in 1933

Why Crystal and Blair Wilson chose Pennsylvania

I grew up spending summers on this farm. It taught me to appreciate nature. My Aunt and Uncle purchased the farm in the 30s and named it Slip Run Farm. They gradually purchased more land on the mountain but when they passed, my father bought the original tract from the estate sale and my Mom and him enjoyed the place up until his passing in 2010. The farm sat empty for 5 years until I realized that we needed to share this wonderful place. So begins a new chapter on the farm.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This place is like stepping back in time. The house is not fancy but has all the simple amenities. If you're looking for something modern with all of the distractions - This is not the place. If you're looking to slow down and experience being in nature on a farm that dates back to the 1800s, on a mountain rich with history, welcome home.

Peaceful & serene!

  • 5 of 5

We feel like we have found a diamond in the rough with this beautiful old farmhouse! We were searching high & low to find a place to stay that was close enough to our family cabins and stumbled across this listing on HomeAway. We were stunned by the proximity...only two miles from the cabins....and the affordability! My husband and I were the only ones staying at the house this time, but there was certainly room for a large family gathering.

The minute you walk in the door you are greeted by the large, lovely kitchen with all of the amenities you need, and the awesome screen porch that puts you right into the woods. We spent a lot of mornings drinking coffee and listening to the babbling stream right beside the porch. I even had a deer come down to get a drink while I was enjoying my morning!

We will definitely be staying here again in the future as our family gets together regularly and we travel out to PA from IL. It truly felt like a home away from home for me since I grew up in a two-story farmhouse in rural IL.

Thanks again for opening up this lovely home for all of us to enjoy!

Beautiful Farm House

  • 5 of 5

The Farm House on North Mountain was very clean, comfortable, and all around fun. Our first night after unpacking we ate dinner, made a camp fire, and watched the stars in the yard next to the house. The following morning we took a short drive to Rickettes Glen State Park and hiked around the beautiful falls, returning to the house for afternoon naps, followed by dinner, a camp fire and stars. Everyone loved the house and had a very good time. If you are ever going to Rickettes Glen or Worlds End State Parks, this is the place I would suggest you stay!

Lovely area and very nice old farm house

  • 4 of 5

The area was a perfect location with lots to do. Couldn't have asked for better weather and having fans in ever room was nice.

We loved the screened in porch and areas for everyone to have their own space. The old farm kitchen brought back wonderful memories of our youth.

The extra guest house for two was nice but would have been great if the toilet had been working. Lots of water so no problems with showers (we had 10 people -6 adults and 4 kids).

Restful retreat in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely old house in the middle of greenery, bird songs, and rustling leaves. The Farmhouse was our family's home base after hiking Rickett's Glen, Eagles Mere, and World's End. I loved the country kitchen with everything I needed to prepare simple meals to start and end our day. The plush towels and artisan soaps were a thoughtful touch in the bathroom. No one , not even my teens, missed air conditioning as it cooled down every evening we stayed, even in late July, and the electric fans were sufficient. My mornings began with meditation and reading on the screened-in porch. I was only sad to miss watching a sunset because it rained on our last evening. We would love to return with grandparents and cousins.

Check out Ricketts Glenn and it's amazing waterfalls. World's End State Park is great to hike in and the Hole in the Sock is a really good swimming hole. The Antique Car and Airplane Museum outside Eagles Mere is a lot of fun and informative.
