Abundant acreage and lake access make this property a sportsman’s paradise

Hunters and outdoor sports enthusiasts looking for a scenic sportsman’s oasis are sure to be drawn to 51 Cragle Hill Rd in Schickshinny, Pennsylvania. Set on a whopping 468-acre parcel amidst verdant mountains and canopies of trees, this majestic property is home to some of the largest Whitetail bucks in the United States. If you have your sights set on bagging a 10-point buck this season, there’s no better place to hunt than on this peaceful countryside estate. During hunting season, hunters can utilize the property’s 11 deer stands, two feeders, and 107-yard rifle range built for target practice.

Lakeside Living

There’s plenty to do during the off season as well. Serving as the property’s focal point, the 10-acre spring-fed lake is stocked with bass, perch, catfish, and bluegills for those who want to try their luck at fishing. Homeowners and guests can also go kayaking, canoeing, or swimming in the tranquil lake. A wooden bridge leads to a tiny island in the lake. It’s the perfect place to journal, read, or even build a playhouse for the kids.

Home Sweet Home

While most hunting lodges may have little to offer in the way of amenities, you won’t have to rough it in the two-story log cabin set at the water’s edge. Spread across 3,351 square feet, the log home is outfitted with six bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a deck that extends out over the glassy water (just in case you need somewhere to practice yoga or sip coffee on crisp mornings). The living room shows off a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, hardwood floors, a vaulted wood ceiling, and glass windows that face the water. Deer antlers, camouflage furnishings, and rustic wood furniture give the property a true sportsman’s feel, although it could be updated with more modern furnishings to create a different aesthetic in case the future buyer is not an avid hunter.

The kitchen, which comes with a Viking stove, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and breakfast bar, flows into a casual dining area. On the lower level, a fully finished living area with a fireplace leads to a covered patio with panoramic views. The covered patio is an ideal place to grill a meal, eat an alfresco dinner with friends, or map out your next hunting excursion.

Guest Quarters

The detached three-car garage is outfitted with 700 square feet of living space that can sleep up to six guests, making it a great place for out-of-town friends who are coming for an extended visit. Guests are certain to be impressed by the lakeside views just out the windows.

The property is currently on the market for $3.5 million. If you’re interested in touring the property, contact realtor Jennifer de Jesus today. With plenty of luxury homes in Pennsylvania, Jennifer can set up a home tour and answer any questions you may have about the property.
