Doug is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
The history of the Pump House began in 1878, when three ambitious men hatched a plan for the world's first long-distance underground oil pipeline which would transport oil from well to refinery more quickly and efficiently than the horse-drawn wagons of the time. Pumping stations were needed every fifty miles along this long route to keep pressure on the pipeline so that the oil could reach its destination. Pump House Bed and Breakfast is one of the only properties in the country in which the both the original homes of the foremen and the large brick buildings remain. Doug, owner, has spent more than 20 years lovingly restoring these foreman houses as well as the large industrial brick buildings. The Brick Barn Hall once housed steam pumps to pressurize the pipe and keep the oil moving, and the Catawissa Cabin behind it served as the telegraph office. The Studio Hall contained boilers that produced the steam to power the pumps, while the adjoining Studio Cabin functioned as a blacksmith's workspace. Today, the buildings function as reception spaces for weddings and other special events, and house private suites as well as an art studio where Doug pursues his work and teaches drawing, ceramics, and stained glass classes. The Season House, one of the two foreman homes, features additional guest accommodations while Doug resides in the other foreman house. Visit and experience a piece of PA history!

Great site
I didn’t realize that you could not pull your vehicle up to your campsite. They offered wagons to carry your belongings to the site. I built a truck bed camper, so we planned on sleeping in the bed of my truck. They were very polite and allowed us to pull my truck down the trail to our site. Beautiful property along the creek. 10/10 would recommend!

Rustic Tiny Home with Full Bed
Nice tiny home experience
Exactly as pictured and a nice rustic TINY house. Shower and bathrooms were clean and close to the cabin. Note that Wi-Fi and cell signal was not available for me as you are in the woods. While there was Wi-Fi setup, the signal was t strong enough to be usable for me. I would go back again

Amazing place and surprisingly barely any bugs at the tent site right next to the water. Falling asleep to the sound of a babbling brook was so relaxing. Definitely get the fresh eggs, so delicious.

Creekfront Tent Camping on Tip of The Island
Very Relaxing Creekfront Camping
Had a great time camping overnight at the tip of the island. It's a great spot to pitch camp, very beautiful, secluded and right on the creek -- the sound of the creek is very relaxing. Doug was friendly and helpful walking me out to the location and offering use of a wheeled wagon to lug camping items. Toilet and shower are within easy walking distance (2 minute walk). Overall a great stay and will do it again (hopefully soon).
