Hello we're Dan and Michelle! We and our family of four would love to welcome you to our lakefront home!
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Owner chose White Haven
We were raised at Penn Lake and want other people to experience the joy of a summer home on the Lake. Summers here are unforgetable and this home creates memories that last a lifetime.
White Haven Thanksgiving stay with Family
Well equipped kitchen, easily accommodated our family of 7 adults, appreciated meeting the property owner and walking through the home upon arrival, all questions were answered at that time and the owner phoned on Day #2 to make sure that our stay was going well.
Thanks so much Mary Lind,
It was so nice meeting you and I appreciate how nice you left our home. Glad you had a wonderful holiday at Penn Lake!
Wonderful family vacation spot in perfect lakefront location!
My family loved our time at Penn Lake Park! Michelle does an amazing job of providing you with a spacious, comfortable, well-equipped lake house. Both the up and downstairs family rooms have huge windows to view the best long distance, wide open view on the lake, positioned perfectly for beautiful sunsets. We had one afternoon where we all watched a storm move across the lake. Our week was hot so the a/c and ceiling fans kept the house very comfortable and were greatly appreciated. Michelle includes plenty of nice towels and linens, lots of outdoor tables&chairs, paddle boat, kayaks, rowboat, bikes, firewood and all the kitchen equipment and dishes you could ask for. It was a treat to not have to pack all those items. So relaxing to enjoy the view from on the water or the large grassy yard that is lit at night with overhead market lights, and you can walk an enjoyable, scenic 1.8 miles around the small lake community. Everyone we met was friendly. The 5 bedrooms are furnished beautifully and 3 baths are a real plus for a group. We would definitely return.
Hi Alice and Tom,
Thank you for the wonderful review! It was so nice meeting you and so glad you had a wonderful vacation. Penn Lake is magical and I think you got that feel for sure. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
Hope to see you again!
Perfect place to get away!
I can't say enough about this house and it's owner Michelle. Went with a group of adults, preteen and teenage kids and our small dog Poppy. Plenty of room for everyone! Beds were comfortable, linens were plentiful and the kitchen was almost overstocked with stuff! No worries cooking here.
The amount of amenities on the property seemed endless. Rowboat, kayaks, paddle boat, fishing gear, water floats, bicycles. They just went on and on! We were there for almost four full days and didn't leave to do anything else because everything we needed was there.
Two separate living areas with televisions, comfy couches, Foosball, games, video game systems. The two recliners upstairs overlooking the lake were fantastic for morning coffee and watching the kids play by the lake.
Kids and adults loved sitting out by the lake. Plenty of chairs, fire ring and a small dock to fish off of. Caught plenty of Sunnies, crappie, catfish and one beautiful large mouth bass right off the shoreline!
The town of White Haven is right down the road. Market, hardware store, wine/spirits, ice cream shop. Literally 5 to 10 minutes away. Ran down there once or twice for supplies and enjoyed every minute of it. Very convenient!
Michelle (the owner) was extremely easy to work with and very attentive. She met us at the house, gave me a detailed tour and made sure we had everything we needed. Whenever I had a question or needed anything, she was was text or phone call away.
You know it's a great place when the kids actually put technology away and didn't once say they were bored! Wifi was available and had a good signal throughout, when it was needed. Satellite service for television was perfect, as was being able to watch Notre Dame football on Saturday night. Go Irish!
We all had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I'm looking forward to coming back again and highly recommend this listing.
You won't regret it!
Thank you so much for your detailed review! It’s very much appreciated! It was sooo nice meeting you and your group!
I believe you found the magic of Penn Lake that we so much love!
Again, thank you so much and hope to see u all again!
Thanks so much,
Beautiful lakefront home
This beautiful lakefront home is in a quiet, family friendly community. This is our second year to vacation here and every year Michelle updates something. This year it was the steps to the dock, outside lighting and kitchen counters. You can tell she takes pride in this home. Michelle even left some bottled water for us which was a nice perk.
We enjoy cooking in the updated kitchen as well as on the gas grill and fire pit. Since we do not have our own water “toys”, we appreciate the kayaks, rowboat and paddle boat.
The beds are extremely comfortable with good quality linens, as well as bath and lake towels. (Really makes packing easy when you don’t have to take linens and towels.)
You don’t have to use your car if you don’t want to! We did go to the grocery store in White Haven and got pizza from Antonios Pizza. Other than that, we had plenty to do right there on the lake. One of the highlights was fishing off the dock, just a few steps from the house. Our three grandchildren, ages 11, 8 and 3 were delighted to catch fish minutes after casting their lines.
Thank you, Michelle, for sharing your home with us. Keep us on the list for next year!
I appreciate you taking the time to give such a detailed.. nice review! It’s nice to see that you found the magic of Penn Lake and family vacationing... it’s so special!.. wish summer would last for 2 more months! Today was spectacular at the lake!
Water temp was perfect!
Hope you have wonderful holiday season with your family.
Family together on the Lake
This vacation was so much fun made perfect by the wonderful hospitality Michelle provided. The house was clean and decorated warm and inviting. We were provided with everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed bike riding, kayaking and puttering about the beautiful Lake on the paddle boat. The guys enjoyed the fishing and even caught a couple of large mouth bass! So sweet to drink my coffee in the morning upstairs by the huge window and watch the lake.....memories were made....thank you!
The property was perfect!
The property was beautiful and perfect for our family. Michelle was extremely accommodating and was available the entire weekend if we had any questions. The house was neat, clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The sunset views were beautiful and the lake was great. There were kayaks and a rowboat which were a lot of fun on the lake. The house was wonderful and we felt at home the minute we walked in. The neighborhood was very nice and perfect for walking. I can't say enough nice things about this rental. It was perfect!
Thank you for the lovely review! Sooo glad you all got to relax and enjoy your special weekend with family!
Thank you so much for leaving our home immaculate! It was so nice meeting all of you!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!!
Thanks so much,
