Clean, well-appointed home in a beautiful, family friendly town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this home was a pleasant one for me and my three teenage children. The home has all that one can ask for; it is of good size, clean, and has all of the essentials. Despite a few missing items and the outside grill being out of service - the home owner had taken great strides to make our stay a comfortable one - even calling and checking in to make sure we had what we needed.

The small, family friendly village of Eagles Mere is like stepping back in time. The beach area (which requires an additional, weekly fee) is well worth it and gives kids and parents tons of fun in the summer months. Kayaking, boating, swimming, hiking, etc. are all at arms reach. The mountain air and views are breathtaking. I'd highly recommend this lovely community and beautiful home to anyone looking to get away from it all and experience summers of yesteryear.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and for letting me know about the problem with the grill. As a result we will be installing a Weber propane grill for the 2017 season. Weber is well known for reliability. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay.

Great mountainside retreat

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to spend a few days in the fall. The vistas were beautiful - full of fall colors. Deer visiting just about everyday. Sunsets were lovely. I would recommend highly. Thank you to David (owner) for your availability. The area is a hidden gem, a beautiful vacation area in PA and the house was just perfect for us.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Your home was so welcoming from the moment we walked into the door. You made it easy for us to find the property and gain access to the home. The home is well stocked to meet all our needs. I so enjoyed having breakfast at the kitchen table and watching the gold finch and humming birds start their days, in the evening we sat out on the deck and watched the beautiful sunsets and the butterflies, hummingbirds and yellow jacket dancing together on the butterfly bush and the rabbits and deer meandering across the lawn. A special treat was when we could hear the kids playing outside in the evening which sounded like echos of our own childhood. The night sky was spectacular! Eagles Mere is a magical place. We went to the lake several times to swim, canoe and take pictures of the lovely waterlily. Thank you for your hospitality!

Mountain Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Eagle's Mere was wonderful. In late August, the days were warm and the nights a little cool. We walked the trail around Eagle's Mere lake, visited the waterfalls in Ricketts Glen and hiked down to the Haystacks on the Loyalsock Creek. Also spent a day at Knoebels, a gem of an amusement park in Elysbury, Pa.

The house was very comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. We had room to spread out and were able to enjoy the lovely sunsets and do some star gazing as well. The homeowners were accomodating and extremely attentive. We would recommend this rental property to friends.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at this vacation home. There were three couples and two children. The children had a bedroom and the adults each had a bedroom with their own bath. Linens and towels are provided so there was one less thing to pack. It was centrally located for us as we wanted to visit World's End State Park, Laporte, Dushore and High Knob Inn for pizza. Had dinner at Eagles Mere Inn which is less than a mile from the rental. Dinner was excellent. The owner of the property was great to deal with and has an awesome website with all types of activities. Hopefully we will be able to return soon. We highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Eagles Mere is a great place for all kinds of families and is a wonderful place for families with kids. The summer months have activities for the kids each morning at the field across from the beach. There's nothing like it that we've seen anywhere, which is one reason we bought the house. I'm glad our renter had a great time. If you rent our home, we will do everything we can to make your stay pleasant too. Thank you for the review!
