Nothing says “woodsy” like a log home.

But as anyone who’s seen log homes like this grand lodge on Lake Wallenpaupack in the Poconos should know, today’s log homes are far from roughly hewn or bare.

Indeed, log homes can be, and are, just as comfortable, sophisticated and attractive as their more conventionally built cousins. Just like this custom Muncy Valley log home for sale.

This particular home sits on a hill overlooking Beaver Lake, a private lake and nature preserve just inside Lycoming County. The northern tip of Beaver Lake touches the border of Sullivan County, the Commonwealth’s second least populated county and a gateway to the endless mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania.

Those looking for a more rural and wilder getaway than the Poconos offer will want to check out this home. In addition to scheduling a visit with the listing agent, you can take the house for a “test stay” by booking a weekend at Sleepy Beaver Cabin on Airbnb.

If you purchase this Muncy Valley log home for sale, you will also become a member of the Beaver Lake Wilderness Club, which owns and manages the lake.

The club aims to maintain the lake as a natural ecosystem, so recreational activities are limited to fishing and bird watching. It’s a steep incline to the lakeside from this house, but you can build stairs up to a lakeside landing if you wish.

Since this is a “turnkey log house” it comes with all the furniture you see in these photos. So if you’ve dreamed of becoming an innkeeper, all you have to do is pack your clothes and toiletries and move in.

Ditto if you’re looking for your own vacation home in the Pennsylvania wilderness with plenty of outdoor activities right at your fingertips. Current owners Stacy and Tim Thomas note that guests often enjoy hiking to Ricketts Glen or Worlds End, both about 20 to 25 minutes from here.

But there’s also nothing stopping you from staying here when you want to get away from it all and renting it out to guests when you don’t.
