Idella's Place was built around 1900. The house was purchased in January 2013 by four siblings who grew up in the house right next door. The house was used as a hunting cabin for the last 30 years or so. Before that is was a home to a women named Idella. She was living there when our family moved in next door.
We purchased the home so we would have a place for friends and family to stay while they were visiting Forksville. We then decided to open it for rental due to the lack of rental options in the area, and it helps with the costs of fixing up the house.
We have been slowly renovating the house since early 2013 and will continue to make improvements as time goes on. We want to update the house, but leave a feel for the original character of a country home. We were able to keep most of the original hardwood flooring and doors throughout the second floor, but some flooring didn't make it. We have replaced the windows and back door, but are keeping the front door to keep in the style of the front of the house. We have replaced the shower and toilet in the first floor bathroom making it handicap accessible. We drywalled over the original plaster and lathe walls, adding insulation in the process (there wasn't any before). The wiring has been replaced along with most of the plumbing. The house is over 100 years old so the floors still creek a little, but we have come a long way and there will be more updates coming soon.
The house includes 4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Living room and Full Kitchen. There are good sized front and back covered porches with furniture to sit and enjoy the mountain air. The back yard gives you direct access to the Little Loyalsock Creek. The main floor is wheelchair accessible including a bedroom, living room, kitchen and a full bathroom with roll in shower.
