Great quiet get away
After reading some of the reviews I pictured a much busier experience. A nice quiet road with quiet neighbors and a quiet lake even on labor day. The lake was great to swim in, dock great for fishing and neighbors were very nice. They are a bit close on one side, but this house has an "end lot" feel with only really close neighbor compared to other houses on the road. Jack was communicative and flexible. 5* stay and host
A lovely quiet lakeside retreat.
We loved our stay at the cottage on Lily Lake. So peaceful and the lake is beautiful. We enjoyed taking trips to visit local attractions--Ricketts Glen for hiking the gorgeous waterfalls trails, Jim Thorpe for biking, and Scranton for the Lackawanna Coal Mine tour. We enjoyed every minute of our time in this wonderful area.
It's a beautiful lake!
We thoroughly enjoyed boating, fishing, and reading by this lovely lake! Having read previous reviews about guests swimming, I was very surprised when our swimming was interrupted by a park ranger telling us we had to get out of the water. Apparently, swimming is not allowed. Too bad, because the water was delightful! We also hiked a couple days at Ricketts Glen. Wonderful! The house is comfortable. It is, however, very close to the neighbors, who were very noisy late into the night.
Thank you for the kind review. I looked into the situation and I am pleased to report that swimming on our end of the lake is allowed. A large portion of the lake is controlled by the State Fish Commission and they do not allow swimming - although water skiing is allowed - go figure. I can only assume the "park ranger" was being a little overzealous unless you were way out in the water skiing area. Regardless, I do apologize for the hassle.
As for the neighbors, you should have called me. They are a great multi generational family and have been coming to the lake since the 1930s. Usually very quiet, they must have been having a family celebration. I may not have been able to quiet them down but I would have at least gotten you an invite. Cheers!
Wonderful way to reconnect with family
I booked the house because it looked like the house my husband and his family used to own. It was quaint, lovely, and quiet - oh so quiet. It has all of the charm of a lake house -- with AC, which was needed during our stay. Canoeing on the lake was probably our favorite pastime. My brother-in-law said that he could vacation here every year. All of us live on the west coast, so don't know how practical this will be, but it expresses our sentiment. Jack is a great owner to work with. He responded quickly and checked in with us during our stay. Thank you!
Fabulous Family Getaway on a Serene Lake!
We stayed at Jack's house on Lily Lake -- 5 adults, a 4-1/2 year old and a two year old. Pictures and reviews can be misleading, so while we were very excited I (as the arranger of the whole thing) felt a little bit of trepidation.
I shouldn't have! The house is LOVELY. Large, gracious and comfortable. Down to earth, but full of charm. The four-poster "pineapple beds" set the mood. The huge dining room was home base. A large table for family meals, Scrabble games, etc., plus a round table for a different activity center, and four year-old Ida was delighted to find a little desk and rocker in the corner for her art projects.
Two couches and chair in living room were wonderful as a conversation center, and this tall woman stretched out for a terrific afternoon nap when everyone else was out and about.
Sun porch was also very commodious, but as we had perfect weather, we didn't have to do rain day activities. Table in kitchen was fine for breakfast and lunch, as those meals were drop in. Kitchen was well equipped with all the basics. My only request would be a couple of good, sharp knives for chopping vegetables, etc.
Saving the best til last: outdoors! The lawn with stately trees sloping down to the dock was lovely -- I'll cherish the memory of granddaughters barreling down the hill to the dock. (Two year old Louisa was able to stop herself for help with the "big step" on and off the dock. ) They found the hammock enchanting.
It was late July, and we were blown away by how quiet and serene Lily Lake is. There are several houses long "our" side of the lake, quite close by, but we felt as though we had it to ourselves. It felt like our private lake. Our only encounters were with early morning and twilight fisherman, silent trawling across the lake. We were captivated by the eagle that made three -four appearances per day.
We loved canoeing -- the women were better than the men! We're swimmers, and a few of us were disconcerted by the lily pads and their tendrils that we had to swim through to get to clear water. I wasn't! And maybe those lovely lilies that give the lake its name account for the peace and serenity, which is just what we were looking for and found. That and the fact that there is no strip of beach for little ones to wade in. It was all assisted by flotation device swimming which worked fine for out two.
Jack was a very accommodating host, and a great communicator. Practically PERFECT!
Rustic and peaceful
We enjoyed our time on the lake and found Jack to be very easy to work with in making arrangements and getting information. The area is lovely, and we visited Jim Thorpe on the way to Lily Lake and hiked at Rickett's Glen while there. The house is spacious though a bit rustic in some details. The front porch was a popular space for our group to read and relax.
