Northeastern Pennsylvania Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Our Family Cottage has been tastefully updated as a four season weekend and vacation rental destination. The Lake is known locally as Summit Lake, is approximately 45 acres in size, has less than 25 cottages on it and is a private community. Approximately 45% of the shoreline is and will stay undeveloped via an easement held by the Delaware River Conservancy.

Upon arrival you will find off street parking for up to three cars. Motion detection security lighting illuminates the parking area, steps and deck. The deck wraps around the front of the cottage to provide a covered porch with comfortable seating and a great view of the Lake. Once inside, we provide a Visitors Guide that includes menus from most of the local restaurants and brochures for local activities.

The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a family size electric griddle and waffle iron for breakfast. Depending on the season, dining can be at the kitchen table or outside on the deck. The lower level includes a covered patio with table and a hammock nearby. In the unfinished basement we store 2 mountain bikes, men's and women's golf clubs and 2 sets of aluminum frame snowshoes for guest use. Adult and children's life vests are also available for using the canoe and row boat.

Summertime sunsets are special and can be followed by a lakeside campfire and marshmallow toasting at the outdoor fire pit. Whether its the fire pit in the Summertime or wood stove in the Winter, we provide a supply of firewood.

We loved it!!!! So peaceful and loved the quiet, laid back atmosphere. The fact that it was a non-motorized lake added to the charm. The kayaks, canoe, rowboat and bicycles added another layer of wonderful. We had dinner at a close by restaurant and it was great too. Will highly recommend and hope to come back sometime soon! Thank You!!!

Amazing trip with the family to this beautiful cabin in the woods. We could not have asked for a better weekend. House was clean, and had everything we needed. Lake was beautiful AND clean, water was warm enough for my kids to go swimming. Thank you for letting us use your boats. Had a surprise visitor on Saturday night....2 bears! We will be renting this cabin again!! Owners were great to work with, very responsive.

"Away from it all"

  • 5 of 5

Just what the doctor ordered. We came up for my wife's birthday and our "babymoon." We brought our dog for a long weekend at the cottage and loved every minute of it. Quiet and peaceful was the theme of our weekend. Kayaks on the lake, BBQ on the grill, fires in the pit and naps in the hammock. We had everything we needed, and nothing we didn't thanks to the owners. Can't wait to come back!

Beautiful quaint cottage perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take our three children on a weekend getaway to this amazing little cottage. It was simple in all the best ways, yet had all the amenities you could possibly need! My kids especially liked the kayaks and the mini beach, while my husband and I enjoyed the hammock and fire pit. It was the perfect get away from the craziness of everyday life and we left feeling refreshed and relaxed. Thank you, Jim for opening your lake home to us. We hope to make it back sometime.

Awesome Escape From Reality!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the cabin during the 2nd week of May! Weather was fantastic, quiet area and so relaxing. Nobody was staying in nearby homes so we had the end of the street to ourselves. Talk about being secluded! Was just what we were looking for! Husband used the row boat and dock to fish. I loved sitting in the rocking chair up on the deck or watching the sunsets over the lake from the dock. Also took a few rides through the beautiful countryside. We definitely plan on returning!
