Recipients of the SFAI residency will stay at the Schweizer lake house located in Gouldsboro, Pennsylvania, USA. This is a two-bedroom cabin with a large, green yard surrounding it, bordering on a lake. The house has 1 ½ bathrooms, a full kitchen, a working space/office, and a living room. There’s a patio facing the lake with patio furniture and a gas grill.
A separate two-car garage doubles as an atelier/workspace.
The house is situated on a private road and thus has minimal traffic. There are some full-time neighbors, as well as vacation homes in the larger surrounding. This is a very quiet, rural area of Pennsylvania. You need to be able to tolerate (or like) a certain degree of solitude to enjoy this place.
There is a small private grocery store carrying basic supplies within walking distance of the house, as well as a hardware store and a restaurant. Large grocery stores and department stores (Wal-Mart, Shop Rite, Lowes, etc.) are located within a 20 minute drive from the house. Food deliveries can be arranged via delivery service like instacart.com.
The lake on which the house borders is good for canoeing and fishing. We have a canoe, kayak, and fishing tackle. We can also provide an access card for the nearby association which has a swimming pool and activity rooms. There is plenty of walking and hiking in the area.
