Loaded with "character," if character means rooms that smell like a wet dog and cobwebs. Lake is more like a puddle. Nasty innkeepers. On the plus side, it is ridiculously overpriced. Would not stay here again if you paid me.

The Inn at Starlake is truly a hidden gem for those who are looking for a little escape from civilization. It’s a beautiful little motel in the middle of nowhere. My husband and I traveled to Pennsylvania in September. The narrow country roads looked kind of spooky at night but once we arrived we we relieved to see this wonderful...

Run down, chipping paint, rotting decks, rooms smell like mold, sheets, blankets and towels were thread bare. Dark dingy depressing place. Breakfast was ok. Service was beyond slow. Owner is not a happy person. Seems like they're having financial trouble. I just discovered a charge on my CC months after our stay for 4 times the cost of the room....

It's a delightful spot, by the small lake, and, since it is over 100 years old, has plenty of character. The rooms are cosy, but ours was fine even if the floor did slope a bit in our en-suite bathroom. No a/c, but no problem as it wasn't too hot and there were window fans. Breakfast was slow, but tasty....

I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Sorry that you left with a bad taste, but I do believe that when you booked through a third party you were advised that there is a 15% resort fee. When booking directly with the Inn all future guests are advised of the 15% which is added to your...

Excellent retreat into nature in this quiet and rustic part of Pennsylvania. The inn is located on the shores of a small lake. There are many activities one can do here. The inn is very old, at least, one century old and it feels like you are stepping on history when you enter the inn. The owner and the staff...

Heather F is spot on. Avoid this place. Let's see - I had to fix the commode on arrival. There is no AC or TV. But the last straw was when the shower didn't work the next morning! We did get a key to another room to shower, but OMG! Stayed there on July 18th and reviewing today, August 22nd,...

This old inn really is a view into summer life in the 50s. One can almost imagine Nancy Drew and her friends staying there. We enjoy dining on the porch on summer evenings. The food is not haute cuisine but it is enjoyable. But you go for the feel of the place and we love imagining what it must have...

Although this Inn has certainly seen better times, it still retains a pleasant face and employs staff that go out of their way to provide attentive service. We lunched here with our daughter, staff at a neighboring camp, and were able to enjoy a cordial meal. The food remains much the same as when we were here years ago, nicely...

The location of this Inn is very secluded in the north woods of Northeast Pennsylvania. The Inn has seen grander times and is slightly worn, but retains its original charm. The food however has probably never been better and at a reasonable price. The deferred maintainance, such as broken glass in windows should be resolved to provide for the safety...
