"Each experience has been wonderful"

This is our third time at The Lodge at Keen Lake. Each experience has been wonderful! The units are beautiful! The area and scenery are stunning! Dean and Joyce, the owners, are so welcoming and kind. We look forward to returning in the future. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

"Perfect in every respect"

Very convenient location, very cozy and clean and well-maintained environment. Joyce and Dean have thought of everything! Got tons of useful information about local attractions from Dean as a bonus. Would recommend to everybody. Thanks a lot!

"Wonderful stay"

We left so early on Wednesday we were unable to see anyone before leaving to say goodbye and thank you

We had such a wonderful stay at your lodge and Joyce your store in town was outstanding. Wish we could have spent more time in Honesdale.

Thank you again for making our visit a great one.

"Beautiful and Family Friendly"
In July my family and I held a wedding here and cannot rave enough about how wonderful the owners and staff are. They put such care into there property and events and make you feel right at home. We rented most of the units and each one is beautifully decorated. We held are wedding on the property and were able to decorate however we pleased and had the reception at the lodge. My husband Tom was able to fish the morning of the wedding and we even did a family field and games day the day before the wedding and Dean and Joyce couldn't have been more helpful and caring. I recommend this place to everyone, stay here you won't be disappointed.

Highly recommend the Lodge at Keen Lake - the units are beautiful and the owners are the sweetest people! Great weekend away with the family. Also recommend the campground at Keen Lake for activities for the kids.

"You truly have a gem at the Lodge"
I cannot thank you enough for your hospitality and your beautiful home. You truly have a gem at the Lodge. The fact that we've come back twice, the second time being an all winner, assures us that we'll come back very soon, hopefully in time to view the fall leaves.
Again, many thanks, we truly loved our stay.

"Welcome respite!"
I stayed in Honesdale the first night of my business trip and did not sleep well so I made a reservation at The Lodge based on a recommendation of my client and intend to stay here in the future whenever I can. I like quiet and this place is tranquil. The amenities are plentiful, the room is pristine and it just feels good. Groceries are nearby if you want to bring your own food or take advantage of some good local eating venues.

"Excellent to say the least"
I had my bridal shower here, my holiday parties here and gone to weddings. Excellent and beautiful log cabin setting. The owner is so incredibly nice. Always great food. Has cabins to stay at. You will not be disappointed.

"Glamping With Grandma and Grandpa"
After years of camping at Keen Lake with my children I wanted to take my grandchildren camping. The Lodge at Keen Lake was the perfect solution. The inn keepers Dean and Joyce have a really beautiful place with all the fun of camping (bonfires etc.) But all the comforts of home. With Keen Lake and all its amenities within a short walk. Our two story condo had beautiful furniture and was the perfect getaway for my family.

"Everything was perfect"

Thank you! We had my daughter Alaina's graduation party in the log cabin this past Saturday. Everything was perfect. Many compliments from our guests on the cabin. Dean met us at the door and was very kind and helpful, asked many times if we needed something, showed us how everything worked. The party was a success and many thanks to you and your family.

"The ONLY place to celebrate and stay!"

The Lodge is amazing and the only thing better than the facility itself is how wonderful the owners are! We were lucky enough to have our our post-destination wedding party here and it was amazing. The log-cabin feel of the lodge is cozy and charming yet sophisticated. Joyce and Dean are accommodating and so easy to work with! We had 6 condos and everyone had a enough room to get ready for the fun and recover. Our guests were complementing the party and the accommodations all day/night. I can't recommend The Lodge highly enough!

"Best Place, Period"
Our family has been staying at The Lodge at Keen Lake for a weekend in the middle of July for the past seven years in a row. The owners are personable & wonderful people. The rooms are always clean and well appointed. Our stays are always memorable. It's the best place to stay in the area, bar none. You will not be disappointed.

"...gracious, kind hosts..."

From the moment we drove into the Lodge for our holiday, we were at peace. Joyce and Dean are gracious, kind hosts and treat you like their closest friends. The cabin itself is outstanding. Joyce and Dean have thought of everything! The property is clean and well maintained. Our kids had a blast and so did we! We'll certainly be back for more. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.



"40th Wedding Anniversary"

Our stay met all of our expectations and more. Your Lodge and rooms are very beautiful. Just what I was looking for to spend our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We were happy to see snow.

Thank you for your hospitality,

Ruth and Ken



"...Great Accommodations"

Thank you for the great accommodations! We really enjoyed our time here. Your Lodge and the Campground are beautiful. Such a pleasure meeting you and your family.

"...the go-to-place..."

Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed my brief stay at the Lodge. You were so kind to put up with our late night arrival. We told our friends that you are the go-to-place for their many guests.

Warmest Regards,

"Still Talking"

Your Lodge is absolutely perfect. It was just right as the venue for our baby shower. Here it is a month later and people are still talking about your place. Thank you. Your vision has given our community a jewel!

"Incredible Time"

I just wanted to let you know that my guest and I had an incredible time at the Lodge in the beginning of the month. You and everyone else we came in contact with were wonderful and more than accommodating, helpful and friendly. The condo was amazing and the area is beautiful. We are so glad we came when we did! We were able to see and get pictures of some amazing foliage. We loved exploring the area. I just wanted to let you know the high quality of service that was provided will definitely have us back to the Lodge again. We were sad to go and hope to make our trip back a yearly occurrence. I have also suggested the Lodge as a perfect get-away spot for family and friends.

Thank you again!

"Amazing Week"

Thanks to The Lodge at Keen Lake for an amazing week!  Our trip back to Pennsylvania was made perfect by having a 'home' to go to each night.  We were able to relax and enjoy the perfect environment - inside and out!  You had everything we could have possibly needed and I can't thank you enough!  See you next year!!!

"A Time to Remember"

Breathtaking!  Fulfilling!  The Lodge at Keen Lake is the perfect getaway for those who want to get away from it all, relax and regroup.  Joyce and Dean simply love people and it is obvious in the way they manage the Lodge and in how they interact with guests.  We had the pleasure of meeting their children who are so mature, polite and helpful.  The entire family exemplifies "perfect hosts".  We went to Endless Mountain Skydivers as listed on the Lodge's website.  My husband went skydiving!!  It was a total thrill and he hopes to do it again!  My husband and I came to the Lodge to celebrate our 20th Anniversary in mid-October.  The beautiful surroundings and peaceful atmosphere contributed greatly to our ability to prioritize many things in our lives.  We walked away from the weekend truly revitalized.  We highly recommend the Lodge at Keen Lake.  Joyce and Dean - Much love and appreciation for all you guys do at the Lodge.  Thanks so much for a Time to Remember!

"You won't want to leave"

... a seemingly tall order for a stay of one or two nights in a town I'd never heard of. But that was what Joyce, owner of the Lodge at Keen Lake in Waymart, PA told me over the phone when I booked the room. To my delight and surprise, she was right! Our unit -- more of a condo really -- was truly a home away from home, spacious, beautifully appointed and complete with fully stocked kitchen. Our hosts, owners Joyce and Dean were icing on the cake. Warm, caring, accommodating ... they thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Circumstances brought me to the northeast corner of PA. But the Lodge at Keen Lake might just make me return by choice. If any business, pleasure or trip route takes you in the vicinity of Waymart, treat yourself to a stay at the Lodge at Keen Lake! A hidden gem!

"Our family goes back every year"

The Lodge is the most relaxing vacation.  The units are beautiful, clean and most of all comfortable!  Joyce and Dean are wonderful, they make you feel right at home!  Our family goes back every year!  We can't wait to visit again this year!

"Very homey!"

My family and I were supposed to go to Lakeside Country Cottages near Lake Wallenpaupak, but when we got there the cabins looked nothing like the pictures on the website and the caretakers didn't call us back for check in for 3 hours! We did not want to stay there! We got some help from the Lake Wallenpaupak Visitor's Center and we came to The Lodge instead. The owners at The Lodge were so nice and the two level room where we stayed was beautifully decorated and very homey. We also met a very nice white cat named Daisy who made us feel at home since we always miss our cats when we are on vacation. The Lodge is also beautiful and we can imagine how nice a private party there would be. Keen Lake was beautiful this time of year (my father nearly caught the biggest bass he's ever seen, but lost it a few feet from the boat!) and there is even a small water fall that feeds the lake. The beds in the rooms were especially comfortable and the linens were of the highest quality, the owners obviously do not spare any expense. We loved making a fire at the communal fire pit and while collecting some extra fallen branches for our fire, I even saw a deer in the woods. All in all, we loved this place and the next time we have the opportunity to come back, we will! Thanks to the owners for saving our family vacation!
