Charming 4-5 bedroom/ 2 bath lakefront cottage situated in an amenity-filled private lake community. Breathtaking lakefront views. Sleeps 10 comfortably. Secluded community includes: sand beaches, tennis, basketball and sand volleyball courts, soccer and baseball fields, toddler playground, sailing, boating and fishing on non-motorized lake. 9 miles to Jack Frost / Big Boulder ski resorts. Situated 10 minutes from white water rafting, golf, horseback riding and state game lands. Fantastic hiking, biking and restaurants abound. 15 minutes to Mohegan Sun @ Poconos Down.
This is a cute little house on a great piece of property right against the lake. The listing is spot on and the owners do a fantastic job with instructions before, during and after your stay. The boats for the lake look like fun (it was frozen over still). It is a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the world. Enjoy the setting and relax.
upon arriving in penn lake we were taken a back at how perfect not only the house was, but the property as a whole. often things like this that are found online aren't always as advertised; this penn lake property is a sure fire exception to that. I chose this home to celebrate my girlfriends birthday, we are all in our late twenties, we had 10 people in our party, and everyone was cozy as can be, it slept us all perfectly and by no means were we lacking space. although the weather was quite frigid we were still drawn to the outside, there's something about that backyard and the views of beautiful penn lake that made it hard to stay indoors. now speaking of the inside, it was fully stocked with anything we needed, plates, glasses, utensils, pots and pans, some spices for cooking, board games, pillows, blankets, and if you are up there in the winter don't worry about the house being chilly because it was toasty, the gas fireplace in the living room made sure of that. we also did a little exploring around the neighborhood; there's a quaint little food market about ten minutes away that has anything you'd need, around that same area theres a few cool bars, but if youre looking for a drink id recommend taking the 20 minute drive to Wilkes-Barre and visit breaker brewing company, great food, great brews. in closing I would recommend this property to anyone who's looking to get away, Karen and mike made booking this property a painless process and myself and the rest of my party is already trying to plan to go back once the weather gets warm.
The house is fantastic with so many amenities and, it was super clean! Penn Lake is a quiet, peaceful community with lots to do...fishing, swimming, hiking and boating. There are 2 private bedrooms with queen sized beds. The upstairs is great for kids but there is little privacy (not a complaint, just an FYI). We would go back again in a heartbeat.
The home is comfortable, relaxing and well equipped for all needs (even a stash of board games!) with a scenic lakefront view. Everyone enjoyed the kayaks and rowboat to tour the lovely lake - even did a little fishing! The kitchen is stocked with lots of dishware and serving pieces and every imaginable appliance! We particularly loved the firepit, and made the traditional SMORES. We can't wait to return; it's the perfect getaway. Thanks for sharing it with us; we couldn't get enough of the idyllic view of the lake. A true picture postcard retreat.
WE HATED TO LEAVE VERY CLEAN AND WELL KEPT. KIDS HAD A GREAT TIME PLAYING ON DOCK AND FISHING TOOK ROW BOAT OUT TO FISH AND THEY KAYAKED ALL OVER , QUITE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH LARGE YARD, THE SWING WAS THE OVER ALL HIT, WE HAD TO SET TIMERS ON PHONE SO THEY ALL GOT "swing time" CAUGHT SUNNIES, PERCH AND A FEW BASS. ALL IN ALL GREAT FAMILY TIME WOULD LIKE TO COME BACK FOR LONGER STAY IN SUMMER. THANK YOU
This home is actually nicer and bigger inside than it looks in the pictures. Very well stocked and Very accommodating and informative owners. Unbelievable view from the porch and the kitchen. Relaxing sunroom and hammock outside. Easy to get to the home. And there are no "community" fees which is definitely a plus. Easy fishing too. Not too many "keeper" fish but a lot of bites. Definitely have a fishing license though because the game board comes around to check and apparently there is a $200 fee if you don't have a fishing license. We had a great time!!!
Would go back to this home in a heart beat.
