The house looked exactly the way it appeared in the pictures. Besides a few stains on the lower level floor, the house was clean and well maintained. 7 of us slept comfortably in the four bedrooms. Ryan was very helpful and was generally quick in responding to our emails and phone calls. The lake was within walking distance. However, since all of the lakefront properties were privately owned, we did have to pay a $15/person fee to a nearby Inn to use their land/lake. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend the lakewood lodge. Note: beer is hard to get in PA. They only sell it in beer/liquor stores and bars. However, you can buy 6 packs to go from the local bars!
