About the property

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms/loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 10)

Linhaven Lodge is conveniently located within 6 miles of Dushore, in the endless mountains of northeast PA. You can find the amenities you need amidst the backdrop of small town charm. Nestled in the woods, Linhaven borders the 7,909 acres of state gameland #66. You can choose to enjoy the simple pleasures of nature that surround you by walking the quiet stoney roads that access the lodge, drop a line in the nearby large ponds, or simply prop your feet up at a peaceful campfire and enjoy the spoils of friends and family. For the adventurous at heart, you could test your skills by scaling the 24 named falls of the Ricketts Glen falls trail, or hike the Loyalsock trail to the Haystacks boulders and Dutchman falls. Linhaven is centrally located between Ricketts Glen and World's End state parks, so you can choose a trip to either with a mere 1/2 hour drive.

Enjoy the numerous wineries that welcome NEPA visitors with open arms, and generous samples of their spectacular inventory. Easily accessible as well, are the unique country shops, scheduled fairs and festivals, boating and fishing the Susquehanna and Lake Jean, swimming, skiing and snow tubing, a day trip to Knoebels amusement park or PA's little grand canyon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am grateful for the comments, and in fact she is absolutely correct about the toilet system. I am so happy to report that as of March 30th, the initial

"environmentally friendly" toilet system we had in place has been replaced. The only thing I disagree with is the distance to travel for groceries, as it is 6 miles into the town of Dushore where there are two grocery stores, as well as a 24 hour mini mart to accommodate your needs.

Location and comfort

  • 4 of 5

Linhaven Lodge is a very cozy retreat in an ideal location if your goal is to visit both World's End and Rickett's Glen State Parks. It's an easy drive to both from this spot, and your stay here will be made easier in general by all the little essentials that the Dalys provide. As some reviews have mentioned, the lodge is not exactly secluded, as there is another camp within view and earshot of the property. We didn't find this much of an issue because whoever was staying at the other camp was not even remotely rowdy, just a grandfather, son, and grandson trio. Also, yes, you do need to pick up the key from the owners, as they're not comfortable giving the key to people they haven't laid eyes on, which doesn't seem unreasonable, since they live within 10 miles of the lodge. Besides, not going there would mean missing out on Cindy's passel of boisterous pugs, who are adorable. Do not let any mention of an iffy toilet from previous reviews alarm you. The old toilet has been replaced, and the new one worked perfectly well for us. Otherwise, our experience was similar to other reviews: this is a clean, well-stocked property that the owners have taken a lot of care with. If any issues arise, Cindy is very responsive. You will love the front porch, and I half wished I was a kid again while there because I could definitely see kids loving sleeping in the loft space. Do note that if you want to use the fire ring, wood is not supplied, but there are plenty of places that sell fire wood, including a place not too far from where you will be picking up the key. A lot is provided on this property, but there are a few stores in Dushore where you're likely to be able to find the basics, if needed. There is a ton of great hiking in the area. The biggest challenge is choosing where to go.

Wonderful cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed over Memorial Day and had a great time. The house was lovely- lots of games provided and it was cozy with the fireplace and fire pit. I would easily give 5 stars except for 2 things. 1. Picking up the keys is about 15-20 minutes away. For us, coming from the south and having to do that round trip, that added about 45 min to our trip. Our kids were cranky by then and it was tough. If you are coming from a different direction, you might drive right by it. 2. We thought we could fish the lake down the road so we brought kayaks. It is posted as private so we needed to look elsewhere.

Both of those issues were not deal breakers. We loved the house and will plan accordingly next time. We are looking forward to returning! Our kids (ages 5, 8) had a great time as well and were sad to leave. Thank you :)

Owner's Response: I do customarily have first time renters check in at my primary home. It is exactly 9.5 miles from driveway to driveway. Additionally, it adds a level of comfort when you hand the keys to your home over to someone you have never met. For security purposes, I don't allow the location to be know to perfect strangers. Unfortunately this is a downfall when renting a private home as opposed to staying at a hotel with 24 hour staff. I was not asked about the lake, otherwise I would have informed renters that the side of the lake closest to the lodge falls on state game land 66, and is permissible to enter the water from that side, as well as fish. As well, Ricketts Glen has lake Jean which encompasses 700 acres of water. Directions to Ricketts Glen from the lodge are provided at check in.

Totally refreshing

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was very clean as usual. We totally enjoyed our short stay. With each stay I totally enjoy looking at the decorating within the lodge. Cindy has the gift of home interior decorating which makes the lodge seem very homey. It was a most enjoyable time away.

Great Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in Linhaven Lodge...quiet, peaceful, welcoming, very comfortable cabin close to so many things. We hiked waterfall trails, visited a legendary amusement park and had a wonderful place to return to at the end of our adventures.

Very Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Property was well appointed and very quiet. We really needed it! It is really great for families as there are games and movies to watch. The wifi was very convenient. We were two couples that stayed and had a great time together. Ricketts Glenn is beautiful and shouldn't be missed.
