Hear what our customers have to say

Over the years I have had the great privilege of working side-by-side with some amazing people, assisting them through all the ins and outs of the log home planning process and helping them achieve the home - and lifestyle - of their dreams.  


Dear Marydee,

Quite frankly, where do we begin? Our recent experience in dealing with both you and Katahdin was well beyond expectations. Your patience, efficiency and attitude helped make our dream of owning a log home a reality. From the time we met you at the Valley Forge Log Home show where you spent all the time we needed in order to get our questions answered to the tour of your own log home, we knew that we were making the right choice in working with you. We appreciated your timely responses to our questions and design changes. The fact that you were available seven days a week was more than we could have asked for. When we had engineering concerns or needed help with ideas, you not only gave us answers but provided alternatives so that we could have options and choices. Your interest in our project made us feel special and we always had the feeling that our best interests were always a priority.

Secondly, let's address Katahdin Cedar Log Homes and their ability to deliver what was expected. The quality and timely delivery were impeccable. We appreciated their warm welcome when we took our trip to the plant in Oakfield, ME. Everyone and I mean everyone, afforded us all the time we needed and the factory tour really helped us understand what we could encounter and what we could and could not do.

In closing, we have a beautiful home thanks to your efforts as well as Katahdin. We could go on and on and words couldn't measure up to our complete satisfaction. Feel free to have potential customers call us so we can spread the word. It is easy to explain why we were so satisfied with the service from both you and Katahdin.

To whom it may concern,

This is a letter of recommendation for Marydee Mock, of Katahdin Cedar Log Homes. I built a Katahdin Cedar Log Home in 2004, and was exceptionally pleased with Marydee's attention to detail and time schedules. She went out of her way to be sure we had all the proper paperwork in place to meet our deadlines, and was also calming and helpful when the stresses of juggling multiple contractors and dates became overwhelming.

When building my home, I found the quality of professionalism and craftsmanship to be the most reassuring traits my contractors had; and Marydee ranked right up there with the best of them.

I could not have asked for a better log home dealer representative than Marydee, and I highly recommend her – she just happens to come along with a great company like Katahdin Cedar Log Homes.

I just want to say thank you for the excellent service you and Katahdin provided in helping me build my log garage. It is the sample for the addition and renovation for my cabin.

From the time I met you as the Katahdin representative, I had a confidence in your product. I had no idea it would be so easy to acquire the log siding I wanted. With your representation to Katahdin, everything went smoothly. From the time I ordered, to the delivery, and the rush order of material that I overlooked, your service was outstanding.

My General Contractor, Jerry Dunham, was very pleased with the quality and appearance also. So much so, he has brought some of his customers up to see the finished product.

Your knowledge of log building was very helpful in deciding how to seal and treat the wood. 

I wanted a garage for storage. Now my wife wants to make it a carriage house. I guess I'm going to build that addition and renovate my cabin real soon, or lose my garage to the family real quick.

I'll be back for more lumber. You can count on that. Wait till you see what we do to the cabin.

Thanks Again, Ray & Helene Shoemaker


Hello Marydee!

Almost one year has passed since I [began enjoying] my new Katahdin home, which was constructed in the peaceful and beautiful community of Woodledge Village, PA. On behalf of my family and myself I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you for your highly professional and benevolent involvement at all stages of my project implementation. As a result, we now live in the house, which matches all our needs and tastes... Many passing by cars slow down when the community members and their guests drive in front of it. I wish you and your company further success in providing PA residents with great service and the quality of log homes you skillfully achieved. Again thank you very much for your help and involvement.

I haven't had the opportunity to thank you for all your help and support during the purchase and construction of our log home.  I must first say that all the material and supplies in the Katahdin Log home package were of the highest quality.  During our early stages of design your knowledge and experience helped greatly.  You made a very difficult time quite easy.  Knowing that you would be there from start to finish, answering questions and coming on site when needed helped a lot.  From times when sub-contractors were needed to stain selections, what ever the concern of ours was, you were there to help.  Thank you again for your professional and personal help through our building process.  You made a very nervous time in our lives go without a hitch.
