About Us & The Cottages
Our cottage homes are clean and equipped with full kitchen and bath, fireplace, TV, VCR, gas grill, picnic table, screened porch or private lakeside patio and lounging deck. An aluminum boat with 6HP motor is assigned to each cottage. We also provide canoes at no charge.
Most cottages are within 65 feet of the shoreline with gorgeous views. Our cottages are individual units of knotty pine decor, spaced for privacy on wooded, level, landscaped grounds with few bugs and hardly any mosquitoes.
Fairview Lake is 200 acres in area and 75 feet deep - no pond by any means. It is well suited for young and old alike due to its cleanliness. There is an area for the kids to stand and swim by our main dock that has a hard sand bottom which is accessible from the main dock or shoreline.
A Fisherman's Dream - our natural, deep, spring fed lake is stocked with big Brown, Rainbow and Palomino trout. It was written about in Outdoor Life as being one of the Poconos' best lakes for both small and large-mouth bass. The lake supports a wide variety of fish besides those listed above. There are Perch, Pickerel, Catfish, even Eel through the underground spring. Plus, there are loads of blue gill for the kids.
Cook any meal in your cottage (food markets are only 3 miles away) or dine out at many restaurants, from fast foods to elegant dining with diverse cuisines.
We are a housekeeping-type of accommodation which means, in our case, that you will arrive to a very clean cottage, however we do not offer maid service during your visit. We provide a kitchen fully equipped with dishes, flatware, pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave and toaster. We provide pillows and blankets, but our guests must bring their own pillowcases, sheets and towels. When our guests depart, we request the cottage to be broom clean and no dishes left in the sink. We provide gasoline for outboard motors and life preservers.
