Built in 1890, this lovingly restored house offers a glimpse of life in another era.  Available for vacation rental year-round, it comfortably sleeps 7.  Located in Schellsburg, it is just off Route 30, Lincoln Highway, Bedford County, south-central Pennsylvania.  It is a short walk to 3983-acre Shawnee State Park which offers fishing and boating on the 451-acre lake.  Personal computer with high-speed internet access available for vacationers use.

In the living room, exposed vertical timbers show the early construction of this "plank" home.  Several original interior doors have thumb-latches.  Many of the furnishings are antiques in keeping with the age of the house.  However, all plumbing (kitchen and 2 baths) is brand new as this house did not have running water until 2003.  A large wrap-around porch overlooks the big yard, working well with hand pump and non-working outhouse.

Entry porch wraps around the back of the house.

The master bedroom holds matching chestnut wood double bed, dresser and washstand of the aesthetic period (1880-1890).  A turn-of-the-century twig table serves as the nightstand.




Bedroom two is furnished with a Craftsman/Mission-style bed and vanity from the early 1900s.




The third bedroom has a single iron bed which is original to the house. 




The main level includes a living room with hide-a-bed, large family kitchen with all new appliances including microwave and dishwasher, a study, and a bathroom with large shower and washer and dryer.
