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.

About the owner: My wife Carrie and I bought our family cottage and updated it as a 4 season weekend and vacation destination. We live approximately 20 minutes from the Cottage and are active in its operation and maintenance. For guests with specific interests, we are long time residents and can provide advice on the many activities available in Northeast Pennsylvania.
Why the Owner Chose Lakewood: When we toured the Cottage for the first time, it was love at first site. It's in a great location that's accessible from all directions. Scranton and Binghamton are an hour away. NYC and Philadelphia are under three hours away and accessible via the major interstates (80/380, 81 and 84)and Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: As a family of four, we enjoy swimming, hiking, moutain biking, fishing and campfires in the Summer, the beautiful sunsets and Fall foliage. Once the Lake is frozen solid, hiking around it on snowshoes or cross country skis are favorite activities. The Cottage is only 15 to 20 minutes drive to the Elk Mountain Ski Resort, which is has a 1,000 ft. vertical drop and offers 27 trails at all skill levels...'like skiing Vermont without the drive'. We are also in sight of the 200+ mile NEP Snow Trails trail system for snowmobiling, so there's something for everyone, year round. For just plain old relaxing, lakefront adirondack chairs, a ground level, covered patio, covered porch with rocking chairs, the shaded hammock or setting up a couple lawn chairs on the dock all provide different relaxation environments.
