Camp Lofawyl For Sale By Owners

WCA members Linda and Bob McDonald have decided to sell their house in The Woodland Park Association. She sent me this description with some photos. It is a lovely cabin that would make a nice home for someone. Anyone who is interested should contact Linda directly. Here is the info:

Hello, just wanted to give you a bit of a history on Camp Lofawyl, our beloved cabin. It was built in the Spring of 1913 and occupied that summer by my Grandfather & Grandmother James & Lillian MacDonald. The house has always been well maintained. It has lovely leaded glass windows down stair. It has been insulated and has storm windows through out. Down stairs has knotty cherry paneling from the 1950. The kitchen was remodeled in 2005, as was the Bathroom. In 2008 a 10 x 19 foot addition was added to the left side of the down stairs (in keeping with the style of the house) to enlarge the dinning room and add some computer space to the living room. 2010 saw a new roof on the house to match the addition (which is now all architectural shingles).

The house is fully furnished and recently carpeted through out, except for the kitchen & bath. (I will just be taking a few family items and books and pictures) All the furniture is in move in condition and the mattresses are only a few summers old.
The kitchen, up dated in 2005, has nice cabinetry and new counter tops & stainless sink. The stove is gas and has a heater in the side, frost free refrigerator & small microwave are all included. There is a small storm window and screen enclosed back porch off the kitchen.

The bathroom has been updated with new fixtures & cabinets in 2005
There are 3 bedroom, the master has a king size bed, chest of draws, standing wardrobe and built in dresser. Second bedroom has a double bed, chest of draws, nite stand & small built in wardrobe. Third is a twin bed (it has had a double, but is a bit cramped, trundle would be the nicest), nite stand and 2 built in dresser.
The water for the house is from a very dependable spring at the back of the yard with a reservoir and pumped into the house by a new pump, put in in 2011, which is housed in a shed at the back of the house with a holding tank and the water heater.
The stove, water heater, cloths dryer and hanging wall furnace are all run on propane gas and very efficient.

There is a garden shed and a 1 car garage with electric door opener. The garage has a small work area on the main floor with the washer, dryer and a utility sink. The second floor has a larger work shop and plenty of space for storage that is insulated and a sealed room, that could be converted to a 4th bedroom easily.
As Rob told you, we have some health issues that we are dealing with and would like to move into an all inclusive Retirement & extended health care community and we need to do it before we cannot pass their entrance physical.

So, if you or anyone you know would like Camp Lofawyl ( Loaf-a-while ) please contact me at 904-724-5165 before June 23rd or 845-688-7803 after that date.
