About Oak Mountain Hideaway #3
Closer to the main house and a short walk from the parking area, Site 3 is situated in a mossy grove under the oaks of Oak Mountain Hideaway! Welcome to our dream home on a parcel of 24 private acres. We welcome you to pitch your tent atop our forested mountain with spectacular sunrises and sunsets, wildlife and birds galore, and dark skies for viewing the stars and the Milky Way! We have three sites available. Site #3 is close to the main house and to the parking area. It is in a wooded area situated between the main house and the cabin we are renovating for a bed and breakfast. It is mossy and has a lovely view.
This site has a fire ring and grill and firewood is provided. Potable water is provided upon arrival.
Our property is secluded and surrounded by the natural environment. We are only a few miles from a wild elk herd and State Game Lands. Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts will see and hear many common species including bluebirds, blue jays, robins, chickadees, mourning doves and many more including the brown thrasher, the woodcock, various owls, turkey, hawks, and the whippoorwill. We have even seen northern harriers and bald eagles. Deer are plentiful and at night you'll hear coyotes howl. Black bear make an appearance from time to time, but rarely.
The nearby Quehanna Wilds is a wonderland for hikers, backpackers, mountain bikers, bird watchers, hunters and fishermen. There are over 48,000 acres in this wilderness which is part of two state forest natural areas. Here you can pick wild blueberries in late summer and cross country ski in the winter months. We are also near the West Branch of the Susquehanna River on which you can canoe or kayak. We provide a shuttle service for an added fee. Unplug and unwind at our mountain hideaway!
