About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath With Loft, With Lake And Mountain Views

This fully modern cabin sits on a small hill along the shore of Lily Lake in Conyngham Township. Located in the northeastern part of the state's Pocono and Endless mountains, the spring-fed lake boasts superb bass fishing and is surrounded by 100s of acres of public land for hiking, walking, hunting, cross country skiing, or simple viewing and relaxation.

Ideal for couples or small families, the property sleeps 1 to 4 and is easily accessible from I-80 and I-81. It is two hours north by car from Philadelphia and Harrisburg and two hours west of New York City.

The cottage is fully furnished with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom and single beds in the loft. It has a large flat-screen television with DVD player, access to Wi-Fi, and on-site washer and dryer. It has a modern kitchen equipped with gas stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, and other kitchen tools. Central air conditioning and heating ensure a comfortable interior in all seasons.

Accessible from the township road by a paved private drive, the cottage has a screened-in front porch and open rear flagstone patio complete with Pennsylvania-made cedar furniture.

The grounds and lakefront are landscaped with native and exotic plants. The lakefront has a table and chairs, a fire ring, dock, paddle boat, and kayak available for guests' use. Motorboats and water skiing are also permitted on the lake, subject to certain horsepower and use limits.

Numerous Pocono ski resorts, minor-league hockey and baseball franchises, Mohegan Sun and Mount Airy casinos, local theater, movies, national and regional historic sites, shopping malls, restaurants, white-water rafting, state and local parks, and several amusement parks are within 30- to 60-minute drives.

With advance notice, guests also have the option during their stay of ordering one or more three-course meals, featuring local and seasonal ingredients, prepared and served on the property. A number of options are available. Arrangements can also be made for stocking the pantry with your grocery list. Please inquire for details.

About Sal Deluca

Our family has spent summers at Lily Lake since the mid-1950s. Each generation has used it in its own way, but the place's natural beauty, fun, and relaxation have remained mostly unchanged through the years. For the last decade, we've decided to make it our full-time home and now would like others to have the opportunity to enjoy a little bit of what we've built our lives around.

Sal Deluca purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Sal Deluca chose Pennsylvania

The Lily Lake Guest House is on a parcel adjacent to our primary residence. As our family has grown, we use for get-togethers and holidays. It's far enough to offer our family and family a bit of seclusion, but close enough that we can easily spend time together.

What makes this cottage unique

We've tried to create a place with many modern conveniences yet one that maintains the popular rustic cottage style of the 1920s. Guests can enjoy heated bathroom floors and Internet access but also bear witness to the passage of time with the simple stone-and-mortar foundation created of rock found on the property, the original yellow pine clapboard siding and Douglas Fir flooring, the open-air patio and screened porch, and the structure's simple yet functional layout.

Exceptional Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we were looking for an more!!! Took my husband and our 2 four legged children for a little birthday getaway, couldn't have been more perfect. So much so that I almost don't want to write about how fabulous it is so we can keep this hidden gem all to ourselves. Before we even entered the house my husband asked if we could stay longer. The view through the woodland to the lake was beautiful. The house was immaculate; cozy and amazing attention to details that I personally loved (soap stone, wrought iron, hardwood, etc). As it was a special birthday for my husband we also took advantage of the personal chef meal option, OMG!!! I wanted to take more pics of the food but it was so inciting and delicious that we kept stuffing our faces and would forget about some of the pics :). We can wait to come back. Thank you Deluca's!

Lovely Guest Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very, very pleased with the lovely property. We took two of our grandchildren for a "making memories" weekend and the cottage provided the perfect venue to share time on and off the water.

We would recommend this as a quiet, serene spot which is impeccably maintained and very well appointed.

When possible we will definitely try to rent this property again!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words, Bob. I know it was a long time in the planning, but I'm thrilled that it was so memorable. Come back anytime with the grandchildren (or even by yourselves!) Thanks again.

Charm-filled serenity

  • 5 of 5

We spent two lovely days in the cottage enjoying zero appointments, deadlines, commitments and crises. It was fantastic. The cottage is beautifully decorated and well-appointed to make your stay a breeze. We happened to be celebrating our 30th anniversary and enjoyed a special meal prepared and served just for us. It was a delicious and relaxing way to enjoy our evening. Thank you Sal and family for being such wonderful hosts.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a delightful stay at the Lily Lake Guest House this Thanksgiving. The location was perfect and the owners really put thought into creating an ambience that was comfortable, but filled with casual elegance. They also provided supplies to make it a turnkey/relaxing experience (such as recreational equipment, cooking tools and much more).

Sal was very accommodating and great to work with when making reservations- we hope to make this an annual trip.

We highly recommend the Lily Lake Guest House to all!!!
