Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
From the time we arrived until the time we had to leave, it was awesome. The cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We saw two eagles at eye level, the closest we had ever seen, and watched as they went down to grab a fish from the river. The blue heron also made an appearance as he too was looking for breakfast. Unfortunately they are camera shy. It was soothing, it was totally relaxing and even enjoyed the trains after the first one, remembering what it was like many years ago. My husband and I got to enjoy the owner's company for a bit and soon realized that he is a wonderful gentle man, who is hospitable and assures your every need. We look forward to seeing him again. Thank You Dick for sharing your piece of paradise with us and we look forward to you coming to visit our home soon.

A serene retreat, a magical place!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a serene retreat to relax and unwind, look no further, Camp Eagle Spirit is your destination. Your journey begins as you travel down a quaint, winding road, under a canopy of trees, past surrounding camps that are reminiscent of a simpler, quieter time. As you pull into a clearing, a most charming turn of the century cottage sits high on a bank overlooking the Susquehanna River. You have arrived at Camp Eagle Spirit.

The cottage is stocked with everything you need for your home away from home and is exceptionally clean and inviting. The owner and host, Dick, has left no small detail overlooked and has provided a well-appointed kitchen and a gas grill for barbequing outdoors. The cottage is spacious and features a beautiful, screened in porch that invites you to kick back and enjoy Mother Nature’s scenery, or to settle into a wicker rocker with one of a variety of books stocked for your reading pleasure.

We cannot say enough good about the charming owner. Dick was a very caring and informative host who graciously welcomed us to the cottage and then left us to explore and settle in. Although Dick insisted on respecting our privacy, we found him to be great company and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Having family locally, we planned a cookout, and upon learning that Dick knew some of our family, we invited him to join us. We spent the evening sharing stories, laughing and toasting memories into the night. Dick is a fabulous host and a gentleman.

Camp Eagle Spirit is a magical place, a place to bring your heart and find your soul. Our only regret was that we only had a week. We cannot wait to return next year as this is now our favorite vacation spot!
