About Mary & Frank
We are from Philadelphia and own a small business. Our life is very busy. Frank is the pizza man and Mary is a freelance graphic artist. The Lakehouse is our 3rd child. We love it that much and hope that visitors will too. Its humble and serene and our savior from the busy loud city.
Mary & Frank purchased this cottage in 2008
Why Mary & Frank chose Lake Ariel
The Lakehouse is a beautiful peaceful escape for those seeking that sort of thing. The sunsets are spectacular. It is open 4 seasons and each season treats us to its own unique experiences. Depending on the time, you can swim, boat, fish, sled, ice-skate, walk the lake or paddle it. Always cozy inside and relaxing outside in the hammock or not he couch gazing out on the lake. There's tons of different birds to watch as well as great fishing both ice and regular. Its just a great place to clear your head, breath clean air and escape. We all need to escape once in a while right?
Guestbook comments from the owner
Me and my girlfriends spent last Labor day here and I've been meaning to get on here an write a review for a while now. All I can say was it was the perfect getaway. The home has so much to offer on the lake..paddleboat, canoe, kayaks! The floating dock was a perfect spot to tan and relax. Although a small house it was the perfect spot for a small group. Everything you needed was in the home..the firepit was the selling point and the homeowners supplied all the wood!! I am so grateful to have spent such a memorable holiday here. Many thanks to the homeowners and I hope to return soon :)
