Pumpkin Pine Farm is a "salt box" style house, built sometime before 1840 and sits on 17 acres with footage along the Susquehanna River. The B & B was named for the type of wood, "pumpkin pine", used in its construction and for many years it was an operating farm.
The atmosphere at Pumpkin Pine Farm is relaxed and friendly. The house is furnished with many interesting pieces including antiques, family pieces, and quilts.
When you arrive get settled and relax with a cup of tea or cocoa and some home baked cookies. If the weather permits, have your refreshments on our guest's covered porch or near a garden.
A hearty country breakfast is served every morning and may include homemade muffins, bacon or sausage, fresh fruit, juice, homemade jams, our own fresh eggs and our own maple syrup over pancakes or french toast. Our chickens are happy ones. If you would like, you may gather your eggs for breakfast.
