The space
If you need a place with a lot of bedrooms for family reunions or trips, our property is perfect for your family. Other close places of interest include trails for hiking (Florence Shelley Nature Preserve, Salt Springs State Park, D&H Rail Trail), Susquehanna River, Montrose, PA, Binghamton, NY, golf courses, and more. The Susquehanna River is within a quick drive. The closest airport is the Binghamton, NY airport (BGM) and is perfect for arriving guests as it's small and very easy to get in/out of. Montrose, PA is also a charming town with local shops and restaurants that's not too far.

Main Cottage - Largest area. Looks right onto the lake.

2nd Cottage - This also has a full kitchen in it.

Garage Loft - HUGE King Bed with Full bath. Kids love their own special loft in the loft there are two mini-lofts which are for sleeping bags. This unit is also where the washer and dryer are located.

Large Trex (no splinters) Dock with a fire pit right at dock level. We provide the firewood at no cost.

OCTOBER is absolutely STUNNING! The fall leaf colors are magical and you're in the middle of it.

Guest access
Regardless of whether you rent the Main Cottage or all three...You'll have the complete privacy of the entire property. If you rent the Main Cottage, we will not rent the other two during your stay. We feel your privacy and exclusive access to the amenities would be preferred.

Other things to note
Wifi - We just upgraded our wifi so that you can be anywhere on our property and have full coverage, it's amAzing!!!

Cell Coverage - ATT you should have full LTE coverage. Verizon has coverage but not as strong as ATT. You can see the ATT tower from the front yard of the cottage. Sprint coverage is in "Extended" mode so...you may not have coverage.


There is a brand new ice-cream shop at the Lake View Inn across the lake. You can canoe to their dock or drive there in less than 5 minutes.


There are two paddle boats, 1/2 person canoes, 4/1 person kayaks, 4/1 person youth kayaks and a yellow floating dock about 20 feet from the permanent dock. We also have a significant number of life jackets.

Other than major holidays and weekends this is a pretty sleepy lake. Even on the weekends it can be pretty private at times. Great neighbors along the road that leads into the cottage that know us very well.

We live 2 miles from the cottage. We've owned it since 2000 and my wife's Grandfather and Great Uncle built the main cottage over 90 years ago. We spent 28 years in Maryland raising most of our 6 children and still have one at home. We lived on this property for a year and a half while our home was being built.
