    This was the perfect place for me to meet with two friends for a weekend of sewing. The cottage was very clean and had everything we were looking for. It was quaint and offered a relaxing get away. We loved sitting on the back deck and were disappointed that we did not get to use the fire pit just due to cool night temperatures. We have talked about renting this property again to bring our grandchildren. It would be a great place to rent while taking them to Knoebel’s. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends.

    Such a great place to stay at! The cabin is family friendly and so is the surrounding community. The kids loved the loft. It was very clean and the listing was accurate to its description. One of our best rental experiences. Thanks for letting us stay!

    Matt’s cabin was very welcoming and extremely well kept. We really enjoyed our week-long stay at the lake, had plenty of time by the fire and did a good bit of grilling. Going out on the lake and jumping in for a quick dip was a great addition to our stay. If you’re looking for a quiet spot in the wilderness, this is a great spot and Matt spares no details to make your trip one to remember.

    We had a great time at this property! The cabin was super clean and Matt thought of and provided everything you would need- fire starter kit, games, a great dvd collection and a binder with a lot of info about the area. We had an awesome time enjoying the fire pit and the canoes he provides. There is a short walking trail located in the back yard. We took a day trip to Ricketts Glen which we also really enjoyed. Great place to stay for a nice, relaxing get away!

    Gorgeous cottage near the lake with walking trails in all directions. Super clean, beautiful woodwork in the kitchen area, very cozy place. Go here if you want to commune with nature, enjoy simple pleasures and relax. Felt very safe there, friendly people - all either wore masks or waved/said hello from afar. However, bring your own groceries so you don't have to shop for anything during this time as the surrounding area seemed less concerned about masking up during this pandemic. Stay at the lake - you'll be fine, happy and healthy.

    It was a cozy cabin located in a very private lake and community. Boats were great! We also caught lots of fish both on the boat and standing near the lake. The fire pit was lovely. We had some trouble starting it at first, but after Matt helped us out we enjoyed it a lot! We will definitely be back!

    We had another great stay, beautiful weather for spending time at Knoebles. Everything you need, just like being at home. Our 4 year old granddaughter loves coming back. She thinks it's her house, enjoys sleeping in the bunk, playing in the common area, roasting marshmallows for sores and looking in the treasure trunk for games to play. Thank you Matt for making this a place we want to come back to again and again.

    My husband and i were completely impressed with this FIRST time VRBO booking! MATT was extremely helpful and provided us with everything we could possibly need for the weekend! He was easy to contact should we needed it. When we arrived he left us with a welcome card with all his contact information! The cabin was impeccably clean and tidy! We took a hike first thing after unpacking, it was beautiful we located the stream with lovely flowing water! We built a fire with all the necessary materials provided by MATT! We explored and relaxed and explored and relaxed! Two very busy working people actually we able to unwind! We cannot wait to book again! Thank you for having us!

    Place was very clean and tidy. Owner was fairly prompt in returning messages, and was very thorough in explaining the wireless, access to the lock box, where oars and fishing rods could be found, etc. Cabin was a comfortable and relaxing space to come back to after spending the day traveling around PA. Overall had a great time and would love to come back again some day.

    Wonderful cabin just right for relaxing on toe porch or by the campfire

    Beautiful wood interior and cozy feel. The owner provided fishing gear gear, didn't get a chance to use, boats which we did use, a campfire pit and bar b-q both got used. There is great hiking trail behind the cabin, we'll marked. Take a left at the bridal for some small waterfalls. The lake was warmer than expected and good for swimming. Rained when we arrived so a cup of coffee and relax in the rockers on the front porch. Can'the wait for next time.

    Cabin was nice and it was very clean when we arrived. The lake was nice and there was a lot for the kids to do around the lake. Would recommend this cabin if you are visiting Konoebles Park. It was only a short drive.

    Fantastic Home - Away

    My family and I stayed for a little under a week at this cottage. The home was very clean and inviting when we arrived. The owner wrote a personal note and had a binder with all local information (Attractions, hikes, etc) contained within. We had stayed in another local Home Away that was not as well put together as this place a year or so ago. The lake was great and the use of the boats was welcomed. Matt was great and what few questions I had, he answered within hours of me sending them. The fire pit and outdoor area is great and allowed us some time to rest when at home in the early evenings. If you are planning to stay here with kids, I can't recommend Knoebels enough. We also hiked to Swatara Falls and that was a great even for my two little ones. There is plenty more to do in the area as well. If you are on the fence, I recommend this home! Thanks for the memories!
