Cute, clean, quiet

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at Moon Lake Cottage! As the title implies, the cabin was cute and clean, and the surrounding community was quiet and peaceful. The roads near the property are lovely for a walk, including a trail halfway up the mountain starting from another property in the community. As the fall colors were really starting to show, I brought along my photography equipment and took some gorgeous photos! The creek out back burbled quietly in earshot of the deck, and the fire pit (which I did not use) would have been lovely on a few of those chilly nights.

The cottage itself was, as I said, very clean, which is important to me. The WiFi would not connect for me, but as I was in a position to crave solitude, it was no large impediment to my enjoyment of the property. One improvement that could be made is the replacement of light-filtering blinds in the bedrooms with light-blocking ones--a neighbor kept flood lights on at night, though I was successful in darkening the room enough for restful sleep.

A day trip to Swatara State Park rewarded me with some fossils to bring home--a real treat for my kids! It has a well-maintained rail-trail that provides great hiking opportunities. If you're a mountain biker, there are dedicated trails for you, too.

Overall, Moon Lake Cottage is a very enjoyable place to stay! I will consider it in the future! Thank you!

Cottage was clean and updated. The owners did a nice job and everything we needed was right there

  • 4 of 5

So, our first impression when we pulled up was not the best. The picture was deceiving. The houses are all pretty close together and most are not well taken care of. That said, once we were inside the place was beautiful. There were little details like coffee filters and paper towels already there. Everything was very clean and well decorated.

Moon lake itself was underwhelming. It seemed it was probably nice in its hay day, but has since gone downhill. Many of the properties are run down with junk in the yards. There is not much to do in the area, but we did go to Knoebels and Yuengling factory, both about 30min from the cottage.

While we enjoyed the cabin, I do not feel we would repeat this vacation just for the lack of excitement for the Moon Lake community.
