Property description

The Fall and Winter are special seasons at Lakeside Manor. In the Fall the cooling weather and coloring leaves invite our guests to venture outdoors and enjoy a nice hike around the lake or down our new trail that follows along the creek at the bottom of the ravine. Fishing and boating are as good as ever and also great pastimes during the fall months. And of course nothing can quite compare to a crackling camp fire as another brisk day comes to an end.

The Winter brings another opportunity for our guests to get away from it all and cozy up with family and friends in our 5,000+ sqft home. The spacious bedrooms and sprawling living area offer many options for group games and activities and the ample amount of “nooks and crannies” give opportunity to catch some alone time as well. Of course if there is snow on the ground, younger guests will love the many hills to sled and the numerous acres to explore and build snow forts. When it is a cold winter the 6 acre pond will completely freeze over providing more to be marveled and enjoyed. Too cold to go outside?…stay indoors and enjoy the pool table, large flat screen TV with many chanels, and the one lane regulation size bowling alley! Also there are quite a few attractions in the area that can be visited year round including the largest Cabelas in the world, The Yuengling Brewing Co (the oldest brewery in the nation), Roadside America (I believe it is the largest miniature village in the nation), Christmas Village (people come from all over to go see the lights and decoration from Thanksgiving on), and much more. See our description below for more information…

Remember those long summer days playing all day in the water under the hot afternoon sun, eating hot dogs and hamburgers at dinner time and finishing with ice cream and apple pie for dessert? Then staying up late with a game of capture the flag followed by a three hour game of monopoly, or cards on the back patio? You will be ushered back to those good old days at Lakeside Manor. The long tree lined driveway leads to the 5,000 square foot 1960's stone cape cod. This 30 plus acre property is truly a step back in time. Upon arrival, there is little need to leave although the surrounding area has much to offer for anyone's fancy. The most impressive feature of this vacation home is the 6 acre private lake that greets you when entering the property but also wraps around the back of the house leaving plenty to be discovered and explored throughout your stay. This is considered a small lake but would be a very large pond. Another very unique aspect to this property is the basement which is over 1,500 sq ft. The basement offers a 2nd kitchen with bar area, elevator access, a large walkout patio area, large stone fireplace and a pool table. The most unique area in the house is the full sized, one lane, old fashioned bowling alley. Bring a personal pin setter along because this bowling alley is "old school" but works perfectly for all day fun no matter the weather outside! Lakeside Manor offers 6 bedrooms with beds for over 20 and 4 full bathrooms. The 30 acres is a combination of green grass, lake, a stream that runs though a wooded ravine (great for children) and farm land. There is a balcony, two patios, an indoor porch, all with great views of the lake and the mountains a few miles away. The old dock has been restored which is perfect for all things lake related. There are many fish in the lake! Bring fishing rods and you'll be sure to have a blast catching bass, perch, crappies, and blue gills a plenty. The lake has a steady decline from the bank and gradually deepens to around 20 ft in the middle. There is a nice shallow area surrounded by shade trees that works well for the younger swimmers. We have a few boats/kayaks for our guests to use during there stay on the lake. Feel free to bring your own boats as well whether they are for our lake or for Blue Marsh Lake just minutes down the road. (Bring motor boats and jet skis for Blue Marsh Lake, not for use here). There is much more to be said but please be encouraged to check out the pictures and contact us with any further questions. Thanks!
