We had the best holiday weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got home from a wonderful winter weekend in quaint Selinsgrove at Isle of Que Guest House. The wrap-around porch of this impeccably decorated Victorian cottage provides unobstructed views up and down the Susquehanna River and the perfect wicker seating to enjoy your wine or coffee while contemplating life as "the river runs through it." From warming by the outside fire to viewing the starry Pennsylvania nights from the "just right" hot tub and taking a pleasant walk around Isle trails, everything was perfect! As a VRBO manager myself in another state, I was extremely impressed with the owner's attention to every detail and expert delivery of the gift of hospitality. Not since we stayed at Roberto's little inn in Montepulciano, Italy have we enjoyed such service. Now, instead of us remarking Perfecto Roberto after every excellent evening out- it will be Perfecto Christi!

Cozy and quaint in an idyllic setting!

  • 5 of 5

The Isle of Que Guest House is full of charm in a scenic location that is peaceful and lovely. It is furnished with period furniture and lots of homey touches such as collections of books about the Selinsgrove area and its history. Christi very generously loaded up the refrigerator with a variety of breakfast items and bottled water. The weekend weather was picture perfect so we were able to take advantage of the fantastic wrap-around porch to eat our meals and gaze at the beautiful Susquehanna River. Christi also provides kayaks to go exploring the Susquehanna which was a delightful way to experience the river's unique scenery and wildlife. The backyard boasts a beautiful pool and hot tub for more relaxation. The Isle of Que is a great place to explore and lends itself to walks and bike rides. Christi is a gracious and helpful hostess who helped us find a local restaurant for a great dinner. This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking to get away from hustle and bustle and get in touch with the tranquility of Snyder County at its best!!!! We loved every minute.

Amazing and relaxing visit

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Christy and Shane, are wonderful people. They made our short get away for my husband, 2 teenage sons and I, a great time for all of us and our different activities. The pool was my one son's haven; clean, beautifully kept area that made it extremely enjoyable for him. Our other son enjoyed the kayak and fishing poles that Shane found for him - THANK YOU!

I will say that the pictures that are listed do NOT do this property justice. The property and its views are much nicer.

I would recommend this property to others without hesitation!

Beautiful fun and relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

Christi was lovely !!!!!!! My family and I plan on returning annually. The little extras she adds in such ass trains for my toddler , life vest, big bee were all great. My kids can't stop talking about the fun they had. The only improvement I can think of is some type of bug repellent there were so many spiders that got in the house but that's what you deal with when your close to the lake. Love the house and the town was so cute with great food.
