Guestbook comments from the owner

I grew up in Oakhill which is just off the lake. I spent my childhood here. I enjoyed being back at the lake for a few days. It brought back wonderful memories. The house was terrific. We loved walking over to the Lakeside Skillet for breakfast and we even took a long walk all the way to Grotto (which was here for as long as I can remember). The owners were great. We will be back again and be sure to stay longer. Thanks!

The owners were welcoming and very accommodating. There was a delay with our arrival, and they were more than happy to accommodate. The house was roomy and there was plenty to do (yes, our large group had to put down the phones!). The place was clean with a few small updates needed to make it more modern. Plenty of linens and comfy beds. We made one call for a minor fix and they were quick with responded. Perfect if you have a boat. The paddle boat needed some cleaning and was filled with water so we did not use it.

Comfortable, relaxing, accommodating with a great view for big groups

  • 5 of 5

The 4 rooms with double beds, and fold out sleeper provide plenty of accommodation. The showers have great pressure, and there are plenty of towels.

The lounge, dining room, breakfast table, play room table and porch provide plenty of space for smaller groups to sit and chat.

The morning and evening views are great.

My unreserved recommendation for potential renters

Great time at Harvey's Lake

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from another great time at Harvey's Lake. It's always fun to visit family and take advantage of all the lake has to offer. This year our visit was all the more special because of our accomodations at the house named "at water's edge" by its owners. The house is very roomy and comfortable and very clean and well maintained. It has all the amenities to make one feel at home. ALthough there is a full size and well equipped kitchen we chose to eat out most of the time and take advantage of the restaurants in the area. We ate breakfast most days at "The Lakeside Skillet Restaurant" because it's so close and it's just easier to go and order a meal than prepare it.(We did enjoy sitting on the porch with our morning coffee, however!) Next time, we might take advantage of the outdoor grill and eating area that's perfect for family gatherings. Lastly, the beds were really comfortable, so getting a good night's sleep was really easy. We are already looking forward to next year's stay.

NorthEastern Pennsylvania is a wonderful rural community. Its scenic area. The lake is beautiful but so are the mountains that surround our valley. The seasons change here are breathtaking. Our area is rich with activities for all ages. Just around the lake near the house you have swimming, fishing, paddle boating. If you bring your boat waterskiing and water tubing are options. There are many State Parks within a 15 min ride for you to visit. For hiking, public swimming pools, bird watching, photography, and playgrounds. In Scranton, about a 30 minute ride, there is the Lackawanna Coal Mine tour and Anthracite Museum. Montage Mountain has a WaterPark in the summer and is a Ski resort in the winter. There are several movie theatres in Wilkes Barre area and also one in Tunkhannock either way about 25 min ride. We have the Susquehanna River for white water rafting and fly fishing. We have several local dinner theatres that have performances throughout the year , mostly on weekends. At the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre there are performing arts weekly. Some local talent, some vintage movies and some National acts. There is the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes Barre. It is the home to restaurants, shopping and its a Casino. Much to do and see here .
