Mother's Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Overall rating is 5 stars as property was exactly as described in listing with respect to location, layout of the property and the amenities provided. The wireless internet service was adequate, even when all six adults were on line at the same time at certIn points during our stay. We were able to enjoy the outdoor portion of the property Friday afternoon and evening (using the fire pit Friday night), and on Sunday during the brief periods without rain. We can only imagine what an amazing property this is during warmer and much dryer weather, being able to make use of the boats and the private beach. The property is well stocked for cooking all meals in the kitchen as well as grilling. The only suggestions we have is that it would have been nice to have at least one or two additional garbage bags provided for the trash and recyclables, which wasn't a problem because of having to visit the grocery store to buy other items, but more importantly, water flow limiters should be installed in the bathroom showers because the water heater wasn't sufficient for six adults to be able to take showers one right after the other without the hot water running out. Many games that are on site weren't able to be played because of some missing items, but plenty of cards, including Skip-Bo, are available and we had two fun-filled evenings playing cards. Also, puzzles on site seemed to be mixed together except for one 1,000 piece puzzle that we all worked on during the rain Saturday afternoon. We wouldn't have known anything about the games or the puzzles if the weather hadn't have been so rainy, and we are not complaining about the games or the puzzles, just giving feedback. Would definitely recommend this property to everyone and there was very good contact between the owners and us throughout the entire process. It was a great time and we would do it all over again! Thank you for providing such an awesome property that met all expectations as defined in the listing.

This house is great. Very clean (my top priority)!

  • 5 of 5

My family, parents and brother's family just hit Penn Lake for the second year in a row! The house has 2 kayaks and a row boat which were used extensively by my brother's fishing family. My favorite feature is the porch where you can sit and sip your coffee in the morning and your cocktail in the evening while enjoying the amazing lake view! We went to Lake Harmony one day to paddle board and Penn Lake is so much better with their no power boats policy! We also hiked Glen Onoko Falls in Jim Thorpe (between porch time). The owners were easy to get in touch with and timely with communication.

Our Wonderful Experience at Penn Lake House

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful experience for us staying at Penn Lake House last weekend. We reneted the house for two nights and had a great time. The house is beautifully located on the lake front and the owners Kristen and Mike Fisher provided a 6 people rowing boat and two kayaks with all required accessories and life jackets. Our group spent more than 10 hours on the lake. The back yard is spacious for other fun activities and partying. The house is well maintained and is good for a group size of 12.

I would recommend anyone looking for a nice vacation spot this summer can condiser this house.

Oweners are awesome and responds very quick to the enquiries and needs.

Charming and well appointed

  • 4 of 5

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.

gorgeous lakefront views beautiful lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

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.
