Incredibly quiet! Look South down Ganoga Lake from a light-filled, year-round contemporary house. Set behind 112 feet of water front at the head of a 373 acre lake, the house has 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths. Leave the dock in a sailboat, kayak or windsurfer -- no motor boats allowed. Built in 1984, the house was doubled in size in 2000 to create a master suite: expansive bedroom-sitting-office area; private balcony overlooking the lake; spacious master bath with whirlpool tub, stall shower & large dressing room with walk-in cedar closet. On the lower level are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a wine closet & workshop & a one-car garage The living-dining-kitchen open plan with a cathedral ceiling, skylights and a raised fireplace set in the River Jack Stone wall overlooks the deck & lake. Set in the kitchen counters are a double sink under windows looking into woods, refrigerator and gas stove. A large center counter holds a second sink and recessed grill. Ceiling fans circulate cooler air in the summer. Emergency generator backs up essential appliances and lights. The custom designed property is part of the Ganoga Lake Assn. (GLA), formed in 1959 to preserve the wooded acreage around the natural spring-fed lake. A prized part of the Association is the Georgian style, Clemuel Ricketts Mansion, built in 1852 of local stone and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. Called Stone House, it is available in summer for weddings, member parties & picnics & GLA meetings. Many of its 28 rooms have original hardware and woodwork. Tennis and croquet are played on the grounds. Helicopters can land. At the foot of Ganoga Lake is a community beach, raft, playground, volley-ball court, picnic tables & restrooms. Ganoga Lake Assn has 70 members. See realtor for fee schedule. Ganoga means "water on the mountain" in the Seneca language. Appropriate, because at an elevation of 2,260 feet, Ganoga Lake about one mile long is the highest natural lake in Pennsylvania. Nearby is Ricketts Glen State Park with 13,050 acres and Lake Jean with many varieties of fish. View its 24 named waterfalls on You-Tube for Ricketts Glen State Park. Over 75 species of bird are known to breed in Ganoga Lake, part of Penna. Important Bird Area. #48. Penna. State Game Lands #13 & #57 offer an additional 95,000 acres for recreation. Butterflies and dragonflies abound. Black bear, otter, raccoon, porcupine and white-tailed deer are denizens of the forest. Truly a place to relax and enjoy nature.
