Spring and Summer Happenings 2016

Spring has sprung in Stoddartsville! New projects abound and some old projects are receiving finishing touches. The Stull barn, originally built in 1875, has finally received electrical service, custom wood windows and a new coat of hemlock siding. Check our multimedia section for photos of the progress. Additionally, over 20 new apple trees have been planted near the Lehigh rental cabins. Varieties include Gala, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Honeycrisp and an antique cultivar called Cox’s Orange Pippin which was created in England around 1820. We’ve also received new bee hives for the apiary, (stay tuned for honey sales in September).

This summer we’re also excited to welcome back the archeological team that did such great work last season. Last year’s finds include a penny from 1842, clay tobacco pipes and a variety of cooking vessels, building materials and dinnerware dating to the mid-19th century. This year the team will be focusing their efforts on the Stoddart house, a mansion built for John Stoddart’s son later renamed “The Maples”, which was built c.1810 and burned to the ground December 21, 1951 under suspicious circumstances. The archeologists will also continue their work in the remains of the general store which once stood along the Easton-Wilkes-Barre Turnpike (now Stoddartsville Road).

Finally, we’re happy to announce the arrival on June 1st of Bill the Goat and Lulie, two Anglo-Nubian goats who will be Stoddartsville’s newest residents.

Come stay with us and enjoy all the beauty and relaxation that the natural and historical wonders of Stoddartsville have to offer! Reservations can be made through HomeAway.com by clicking on the lodging section of this website.
