Guestbook comments from the owner

I grew up in Oakhill which is just off the lake. I spent my childhood here. I enjoyed being back at the lake for a few days. It brought back wonderful memories. The house was terrific. We loved walking over to the Lakeside Skillet for breakfast and we even took a long walk all the way to Grotto (which was here for as long as I can remember). The owners were great. We will be back again and be sure to stay longer. Thanks!

Great family weekend

  • 4 of 5

I just stayed at this lake house for presedents weekend. Me, my husband, My sisters and brother and there other halfs wanted to get together for a relaxing weekend to spend some time together. We had an amazing time. The house was the perfect size, beds were soooo comfy, water pressure for showers was perfect. We watched movies, there is a good library of book/DVDs at the house, played games, played pool, unplugged and had a blast. Really couldnt have asked for a better weekend, plus it snowed on Saturday and everything looked beautiful, which just added to the perfection.

The owners were welcoming and very accommodating. There was a delay with our arrival, and they were more than happy to accommodate. The house was roomy and there was plenty to do (yes, our large group had to put down the phones!). The place was clean with a few small updates needed to make it more modern. Plenty of linens and comfy beds. We made one call for a minor fix and they were quick with responded. Perfect if you have a boat. The paddle boat needed some cleaning and was filled with water so we did not use it.

Comfortable, relaxing, accommodating with a great view for big groups

  • 5 of 5

The 4 rooms with double beds, and fold out sleeper provide plenty of accommodation. The showers have great pressure, and there are plenty of towels.

The lounge, dining room, breakfast table, play room table and porch provide plenty of space for smaller groups to sit and chat.

The morning and evening views are great.

My unreserved recommendation for potential renters

NorthEastern Pennsylvania is a wonderful rural community. Its scenic area. The lake is beautiful but so are the mountains that surround our valley. The seasons change here are breathtaking. Our area is rich with activities for all ages. Just around the lake near the house you have swimming, fishing, paddle boating. If you bring your boat waterskiing and water tubing are options. There are many State Parks within a 15 min ride for you to visit. For hiking, public swimming pools, bird watching, photography, and playgrounds. In Scranton, about a 30 minute ride, there is the Lackawanna Coal Mine tour and Anthracite Museum. Montage Mountain has a WaterPark in the summer and is a Ski resort in the winter. There are several movie theatres in Wilkes Barre area and also one in Tunkhannock either way about 25 min ride. We have the Susquehanna River for white water rafting and fly fishing. We have several local dinner theatres that have performances throughout the year , mostly on weekends. At the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre there are performing arts weekly. Some local talent, some vintage movies and some National acts. There is the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes Barre. It is the home to restaurants, shopping and its a Casino. Much to do and see here .
