About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6) 4 Kayaks Available for Rent too!
Just one mile down the road is the Aitch boat launch and fishing pier. A wonderful view of the tree covered mountains surrounds you. Public guided boat tours are available at the Marina and Resort areas.
You will truly enjoy the three HD TVs, the pool table, and the 4-person hot tub.
The master bedroom on the main floor has a queen bed and a large master bath w/ oversized Jacuzzi (non-jetted) tub, separate shower, walk-in closet and Kohler fixtures. This master bedroom has a sliding glass door onto a rear deck w/ beautiful view of the federal lands and a pond where you can frequently find a blue heron looking for fish.
The main floor has dining room & living room w/ gas fireplace. The modern kitchen has every convenience you need including an island w/ a Jenn-Air grill & gas range unit, a side by side refrigerator, built in microwave, built in oven, dishwasher, & garbage disposal. We also supply a drip coffee maker, rice cooker, crock-pot and other kitchen gadgets. This main floor has nice laundry room & separate half bath.
The second-floor loft contains two queen size beds and a large, full-size bathroom with a large shower. A convertible bed is in the living room for additional guests. Despite the number of beds, we will only rent to a maximum of six adults.
There is a screened in 3 seasons room w/ entrance off kitchen & dining room. This home has a heat pump, central air, central vacuum, ceiling fans, skylights & nice attached 26’ x 26' garage.
*Beginning summer 2017, the government is installing a pipeline under the lake and through surrounding lands. This work will run along the boundary of our property. We do not have any information on the timing, or when the work will be active at our house, although we are told the actual laying of the pipeline will only be 1 day at our house. Nonetheless, they have dug the route and it is unsightly. It does not affect our house otherwise, but I think it is fair to tell you. Hopefully, the project will be very quickly completed.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Children are welcome, but the house is not well-suited for children because of the pool table and hot tub. Both require extra vigilance from the adults to protect the child from harm and from damaging the items with dirty hands, spilled drinks, etc. Any damage to the pool table felt will require re-covering the pool table, which is a cost in excess of the deposit, so be careful....moreless
Non Smoking Only:
Smoking is strictly prohibited. If smoking occurs in the house or garage, the security deposit will be forfeited. All butts, ashes, etc., must be separately disposed of and taken with the guest upon departure. Leaving the same in the garbage can result in odors to the receptacle and garage that are difficult to remove....moreless

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Mom and wife with a beautiful family, cook, blogger, and attorney. Our favorite pastime is to eating, drinking and being merry. Doing it at the lake is a bonus!
Why the Owner Chose Entriken, PA, USA:
The location provides for a quiet, peaceful stay. This is a 'get-away' property, and if you love wildlife, you can see Eagles, Bobcats, Fox, Deer and many smaller, beautiful critters by just strolling quietly in the woods. Of course, you have to know how to look for them. We love the lake and playing in the water.
