Lenox House Rental Photos and Description

Cozy cottage sleeps 8 on mountain lake w/ gas fireplace, cable and DSL internet

Nestled in the Endless Mountains Region on a private lake surrounded by forests, Abby’s Lake House offers wonderful views of the lake, 160 feet of lakefront, and great fishing right from the dock. You can take a 15-20 minute drive to Lackawanna State Park, go boating on the lake, or go hiking on nearby PA Game Lands or the Rail-Trail. As night chills the air, build a fire or come inside and snuggle by the stone fireplace. Have fun getting visiting festivals, farmers markets or taking farm tours! Avoid the crowds, take your time, and enjoy it! Abby’s Lake House is a great base for shopping: local specialty, craft, and antique stores, major shopping district along Route 6, and the Crossings Outlet Mall. Take the family to a historical re-enactment, ride on a Steam Engine Train, or tour an Anthricite Coal Mine.

About Lori Martin

My husband and I live about 20 miles north of the lake. We hike, hunt, boat, and fish together. My husband loves to cook which is why the kitchen is so fully equipped. He has to have *everything* when we spend time at Abbys Lake House!

Lori Martin purchased this house in 2009

Why Lori Martin chose Lenox

My husband and I purchased this property January of 2009. We spent over a year getting it ready for rent and listed it on May 22, 2010. From when we first saw it, we knew it was a special place. We really enjoy spending time here and sharing it with others. It's relaxing. The lake is not too big but not too small. Quieter than most of the lakes of the same size. Great location - just 2 miles from I81, 12 miles to Elk Mountain, 30 miles north of Scranton.

What makes this house unique

Lovely lake views from almost every room, forest views from the other rooms. Gorgeous dining pergola over looking the lake. Lots of bass, catfish, sunnies, blue gill, pickerel right from the dock! 2 garages near the road and level to the road (something special when you live in the mountains!).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had soo much fun at Abby’s Lake House! We went fishing, canoeing, swimming and so much more. My brother and my mom caught tons of fish. I didn’t fish all that much so I caught zero fish. My dad tipped in the canoe twice. We made a fire and roasted marshmallows 3 times. No matter what we were doing at Abby’s Lake House, we were always having fun! Bye! - Philadelphia, PA

Awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this property to anyone looking to have a good time. This place made us feel like it was home as soon as we walked in. So many different things to do just at the home (example: boating, swimming, yard games, board games, video games, fishing, cooking out, etc..) I am a big fisherman and just off the shore in front of the house I caught a large mouth bass, sunfish, and yellow perch. Took the canoe out and catch bass, crappie, and pickerel.

Awesome weekend!!

  • 5 of 5
We we were looking for a place close to Elk Mountain so we could ski and then have a nice place to come back to hang out with family. We had 8 adults and the Lake House accommodated us all with room to spare. It is purely as advertised in all of the other reviews. You really just need to bring food and clothes because Lori and Clay have provided everything else. The kitchen was my favorite room, and not because I cook. It was just sooo cool with the high table and chairs, the thick rustic wooden beams, and the neat assortment of hanging baskets. We ate at the table, I worked from the table and at night we played games at the table. And from the table you had a great view of the lake from two different windows. I could see the summer toys they have in the garage, the kayaks, the sailboat, canoes, and rowboats, and read about the fabulous fishing and would love to bring the family back for some summer fun as well. Oh yeah, and they welcomed our dog to come. BONUS!! Great job Lori and Clay. Thanks so much!!

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
This rental was fantastic! My family and I were looking for a way to celebrate the end of the school year and this provided the perfect opportunity to do so. The home was rustic and charming. We made full use of the private dock swimming, floating in tubes, using rowboat. It was fantastic. The rental has all the amenities one could ask for. It is fully stocked which made the trip even easier. Lori was more than accomodating as we could not check in until 11PM. We even got lost and she came to meet us and ensure we found way to the rental. She then proceeded to give us full tour of the property even at this late hour. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. We hope to return for longer stay.

Abby's Lake House

Abby's Lake House
  • 5 of 5
We found this property online after looking for homes for rent on a lake.
We made our reservations with Lori and Clay and arrived on May 16, 2011. We were very surprised about how clean and well kept the house was. There was everything imaginable there in the way of household items. We brought some of our own things such as paper towels and kitchen things but never needed them. The Martin's absolutely thought of everything including firewood. When we ran out of firewood we called the Martin's and they brought more firewood over very promptly. The beds were comfortable and the TV's and DVD were also a nice touch. The garage had fishing equipment and things for going out on the lake. I recommend this house for anyone that wants to get away to relax.

Memorable Memorial Day Weekend...

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a fantastic stay over the Memorial Day holiday at Abby's Lake House - kudos to Lori and Clay for providing such a collection of amenities and conveniences to make our getaway as seamless and fun-ready as possible. The house is beautifully decorated and has a great rustic feel, but still outfitted with a load of modern life items, like wifi, widescreen HDTV and plenty of distractions for young ones on rainy days (games, toys, puzzles, etc.). Along with the distractions from Mother Nature - we loved watching the birds and occasional squirrel at the feeder, easily visible from the kitchen table window. And not that we had to contend with any miserable weather either - a gorgeous sunny weekend had us fishing from the dock and even taking a couple dips in the lake (some planned and some unplanned!). My youngest is 5 and he was aglow with catching fish right off the dock for at least half of each day; nighttime was spent relaxing and listening to the crickets and bullfrogs and lilt of waterfront harmonies. We truly had a fantastic time, and we are anxious to plan a return soon. We were especially glad to be able to bring our dog, Beau, along with us on a vacation this time. These days, relaxation is harder and harder to come by. Abby's Lake House, with all the space and convenience and gorgeous accommodations, makes it easy as pie. Speaking of pie, while you are staying, head up to the recently reopened Bingham's family restaurant, just a hop up the road, for a yummy slice or two! Perfect vacation time at Abby's and recommend highly!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5
We rented Abby's Lake House for a ski weekend at Elk. Lori Martin was responsive to my inquiry and was extremely helpful in the week leading up to the rental (she sent e-mails about things to do and weather updates as the forecast called for very cold weather that weekend).

She met us as promised at check-in and went over all the stuff we needed to know. She was very friendly and knowledgable about the area.

The house was perfect for my family of five (Mom, Dad and three young boys). The kitchen is well stocked, lots of workspace, it felt like home. The boys enjoyed playing the Play Station upstairs while we cooked. At night we all played board games which were at the house and then Mom and I watched a movie on the large flat-screen with surround sound (also has an I-Pod docking station which was great). Wi-Fi worked as advertsied.

Beds were good, sheets and linens were clean, lots of clean towels. All great.

The house is on a small country road so you will hear the louder cars as they pass in front of the house. However the volume of cars was something like four an hour, so you are not talking about a lot of traffic.

All-in-All, we loved Abby's Lakehouse and felt that it was exactly as advertised.

Oh, almost forgot, the ski area at Elk is only a 10-12 minute drive. We'll be back for sure!

Experience our heritage at Old Mill Village or by visiting our Viaducts. Meet new friends in the woods - a turtle, an owl, or maybe an ermine. Look up to see eagles, great blue herons, and hawks. Wildlife abounds. Ski at Elk Mountain Ski Resort 'Just like skiing in Vermont, but without the drive'. Hike and bike the Rail-Trails.
