Honesdale cabin description

If you are looking for a Spring 'get-away'? Look no more. Book two nights and get on night FREE. (Book the 2 nights through the website and I will add the 3rd night on my calender.) This offer ends April 30th.

Summer is booking quickly, so pick your dates and send me an email :)

Pack your clothes, personal items, and food. We provide most everything else. A detailed list may be requested. We are only 3 hours from NYC and Philadelphia. Lehigh Valley is only 2 hours away.

You have found the only vacation rental on beautiful Duck Harbor Pond. At 2 miles long and a half mile wide, it is not a 'pond' but a private glacial lake, perfect for any water sport.

Enjoy the calmness of the lake in the morning, afternoon activities, and evening sunsets from the rocking chairs on the covered porch. Our resident Blue Herons and Bald Eagles can be seen frequently.

Family fun and enjoyment was the focus of our design. We considered families with special needs by including a handicap ramp and 36 inch doorways on the main floor.

Guests with allergies will do well in this house since there are all wood floors with no carpeting, no pets, and no smoking.

* We are in a rural area with little or no cell phone service, so we provide WiFi and free long distance calling from our land line.

Although we focus on families, this is ideal for couples or any group of 6 or less.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Honest and hard working are words we have heard to describe us. We have shared many adventures in the 40 years we have been married. Although we are both technically 'retired', we are always working on a project. In the fall of 2011, we purchased a run down cottage on Duck Harbor Pond. Over the winter we tore it down and in the spring of 2012 we started building this new log cabin. The design and most of the labor was done by us. We hope you will appreciate our pride in workmanship and love every minute you spend in our cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Honesdale:
We are blessed to be permanent residents in our own log cabin at Duck Harbor Pond. Sharing our piece of 'Paradise' with others in this new this cabin has been a great pleasure.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
ECO-Friendly and respect for nature and our environment. The logs and all wood are locally grown and processed. From the lights and windows to the appliances and granite, our choices reflect energy efficiency and organic materials.
