Kids can enjoy the bottom level of the house, which includes a Smart TV for streaming, as well as Spectrum cable channels! This area also has a pool table, a ping-pong table, air hockey, an indoor basketball hoop, a dart board, a card table with board games for all ages, and a full bathroom. Adults will love the open-air outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub, the herb garden on the deck, and the iJoy Robotic Massage Chair to ease away stress, tension and fatigue with only a push of a few buttons. A gas grill is on the large two-sided deck. Hardwood floors through the entire cabin. Room descriptions: The large master bedroom on the third floor has a king bed, a 42-inch HDTV with Spectrum cable channels and Roku for streaming, an iJoy Robotic Massage Chair, and a private master bath.

There is a short hiking trail from the hot tub area to the top of the hill, about a 20 minute round trip hike. Neighborhood amenities: A public par 3 golf course (Willow Creek Golf Course) as well as a family picnic area, which includes picnic tables, swing set and slide. Just minutes away from all the shopping, dining, attractions, and adventures that the High Country has to offer. History: People everywhere called him "Big John" or Mr. Rock, appropriate names for the owner's 6-foot tall, 265-pound uncle. Uncle John never went to college, well, yes, he did - for one semester, before being drafted by the Detroit Tigers to play professional baseball, yet he was probably one of the smartest businessmen of his generation. Everything he touched seemed to turn to gold. He was an organizer, a leader, a giver - and the most generous person many ever knew. Some of his projects include the building of a playground for children in his hometown and the installation of a huge glockenspiel town clock. Most of all, his generosity throughout the community of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania was known only by him and those he helped. Uncle John passed away in 2009, but the family is still hearing stories of how he helped people and organizations. His dream was to build a log cabin, which he did in 2006. The cabin is now Timberstone Resort and includes a huge lodge, several smaller cabins, a swimming pool, fishing pond and pavilion for weddings and parties. Phase 2 of this recreational area was in the process of being built when he suddenly had a stroke in early 2009. He passed away 4 months later. Although Uncle John was not here to oversee the building of this log cabin, completed in July 2010, somehow we feel that he would have loved it here. The purpose of this special cabin is to be in memory of Uncle John. If you decide to stay at Uncle John's Cabin, we hope you will feel the love of Uncle John while you are here.
