About our home

Let's start out with two words: "Indoor Pool". Yes, this beautiful home has an indoor pool. Imagine sled riding on the front lawn of this 20 acre property and then coming inside for a dip in the pool while looking over the beautiful snow covered mountains of Central Pennsylvania. Or imagine hiking the trails at Worlds End State Park and then coming back to a relaxing soak in the 10 person jacuzzi hot tub. If that doesn't sound like your idea of a "staycation", how about fishing in our pond or hunting on nearby state gamelands and then coming "home" to shoot some pool with your buddies? However you like to spend your time, you can do it at the Brown House.

Located at the intersection of Route 220N and Route 154N in Laporte, PA, this home is less than 4 hours from NYC, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. It is within one hour of Elmira and Williamsport, and within two hours of Harrisburg or Altoona.

Why travel far for a weekend get-a-way or week with friends and/or family when you can have a home to yourself where you can enjoy swimming, camping, hunting, and/or hiking at Worlds End State Park or just stay at this self contained miniresort and relax with your loved ones?


More about us

  1. About Us

    We love our vacation home so much, we thought we would share it with you when we are not able to be there ourselves.

    There is too much fun to be had at the Brown House. Please come and enjoy our home as much as we do. It is truly an escape from the everyday rat race and a place to get away and relax with family and friends. Please treat our home as you would your own so you can come back over and over to get revitalized and renewed as we do every year. One of our favorite things to do in the winter is to go ice skating on New Years Day and then swimming with the cousins for the rest of the evening. Grandma and Pop Pop sit in front of the fire while all the big kids make hot sausage sandwiches and fresh baked cookies.

    In the summer we hike the Loyalsock Trail at Worlds End, come back and the kids swim while we grill up some hotdogs. After everyone is in their pajamas, outside for smores and campfire songs.

    Recently in 2010 we joined the Lake Mokoma Association (check out the website It is less than a one minute drive from the house to the beach. For an additional charge, the renters can enjoy the beach and all its amenities. Talk to Patsy at Robin Real Estate about the details (

    Rain or shine, this is a guaranteed great "staycation"!!
