Wonderful Lake Front Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonder time at Lake Carey! This house was perfect for our stay. We loved the kayaks, fishing poles & spending time on the dock. The owner supplied everything we needed for a great week!

Perfectly lovely lake house

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is one of my favorite ever VRBO/Airbnb rentals. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and charmingly decorated. The open floor plan made this house seem really spacious. The kitchen was very well stocked, including a vintage thermos to bring our coffee down to the dock in the morning and a Ninja blender to whip up frozen drinks in the evening. Every other convenience you'd expect in a kitchen was there. It was nice to have a Smart TV in two rooms. It was wonderful using the kayaks Jennifer has available. I believe there were four traditional kayaks and one 2-person sit-on kayak, complete with paddles and life vests. The lake is beautiful! The town of Tunkhannock is only 10 minutes away for shopping or going out to dinner. We would love to come back here again!

Coming back to little old Lake Carey could not have been better thanks to Jennifer. Not only did she greet us at the door with a smile but also laid out a cute little surprise for my girlfriend for her birthday. What a great way to start the weekend. On top of that, while trying to start the new grill that she had bought for that weekend, we had realized it was missing parts. We notified her and she promptly bought us a brand new one, fully assembled. The house itself was beautiful, quaint and extremely clean. She had also stocked the house with essentials such as fruit, charcoal, and milk.... essentials in my book at least :). Having the smart tv in the living room was a great addition as well. The lake was very nice. We did run into some small snakes and the like...... nothing we couldn't handle. Kayak's and fishing poles were also at the ready when we arrived. All in all it was a fantastic weekend. I would highly recommend!

We did some fishing and had a camp fire took the supplied khakis out! Just a great experience would recommend to anyone! And it's not to far from Tunkhannock so you don't need to drive far to get stuff you may need or want to do!!! Again, I strongly recommend!!

My husband and I loved the cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for the week of my son's wedding. My daughter and her family stayed with us for the first four days.

The cottage was wonderful. Plenty of room for adults and children. Very we'll taken care of, nicely decorated. The owners haven't overlooked a thing, as far as amenities to make for a great stay. I look forward to another stay.

So fun for the family!

  • 5 of 5

This place was beautifully maintained... Clean and quaint! My husband, my two young daughters and I loved it. We had plenty to do (the kids didn't even ask for their iPads). The lake was lovely, we loved to watch the boats go by. The whole family enjoyed kyaking. Jennifer was accommodating and friendly...she even dropped off wood for the fire pit when we had some trouble finding a place to buy some! The kitchen is well stocked with some extras including some snacks, bottled water and coffee! We hope to go back again!
