A few comments from a repeating happy customer:
1) We had another nice visit. Actually got to get out on the lake this time as we did have some moments in between the rain. It was a sad visit though as our 14 1/2 year old dog has bladder cancer, and we learned from our Vet on Tuesday her blood results now show she's in severe Kidney failure. We don't expect her to make it another week. So, it was difficult knowing that was the last time she'll get to be at the cottage with us. She loved it there and always seemed to feel at home. Thanks again for allowing us to always bring her with us.
2) We had another nice and relaxing stay. Used the fireplace a lot this time around. Our older dog (14 yrs old) loved laying by the fire.
3) We had a nice time while we were there. It was great fireplace weather.
Located at the top of the Poconos on Lake Ariel. Many local artists and activities including Dorflinger Estate with summer music festivals, chicken barbeque's, country fairs, and sidewalk sales. Near historic Honesdale, Hawley, Lake Wallenpaupack and Tannersville shopping Outlets.
Other Activities: Lake activities although only owners are allowed to have boats on the lake. We have a rowboat and paddleboat. Fishing is great. Area has hiking, bowling, paint ball, petting zoo, golf, and more. Honesdale is about a 20 minute ride north on 191 and usually has some special activities for the weekend. It's a quaint town with great stores and restaurants. Hamlin has Schaeffer's hardware which is just a really neat hardware store complete with gifts, kitchen items, dollar store items, lawn, garden, clothing, boots, in addition to typical name brand hardware store items. Hunter's Gallery is on one side of it and a driving range on the other!
Golf: Scranton Municipal Golf Course is a public course about a 15 minute drive from the cottage. Red Maples is close and a real country course. The views are fabulous. Honesdale has a course, one made famous by Art Wall and his record holes in one, but it's a private course. They may have specials when you're in the area so you may get to play. There is a driving range close by near Schaefer's hardware store in Hamlin.
Ski: Skiing is a must for most in the area. South of Scranton on I-81is Montage Mountain which has a great snowboard run and a wonderful lodge. North of Scranton on I-81 is Elk Mountain with great black diamond runs and many trails. Near Stroudsburg is Camelback Mountain with many winter activities in addition to skiing. It's also near the Tannersville Outlets is some would rather shop than ski. There are also two smaller but fun resorts: Tanglwood and Big Bear. The latter is near Woodloch which is also home to a high end spa.
