Cherry Mills Lodge
Ranked #2 of 2 Dushore B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Cherry Mills lodge is a beautiful and cozy Bed & Breakfast. The Location is great if you are in need of a getaway. It is tucked away by the loyal Sock creek which makes it for a nice peaceful area. I stayed in Room F, one of the new rooms they have finished (they are remodeling). It was a cozy room with its own spacious bathroom. The decorations gave it a great ambiance. The family that owns the B & B, the Kiners, are very friendly and knowledgeable. . They serve breakfast from 8 am to 9:30 am. The food is home-cooked and was amazing, and are quick about serving you. You have a good variety of choices, such as Pancakes, French toast, sausage biscuit, beef and gravy, etc. and the normal egg choices. The coffee is home roasted.

I am definitely coming back when it gets warmer.

My fiancé and I stayed here for a Thursday and Friday night. On Friday night about 5:00 we heard kids, a crying baby and many loud rude adults. Wait , it gets worse...

Then the hammering and construction starts-honest ! At 7:40 there is hammering, dropping of equipment and such going on in the attic above us. They are adding rooms- which is fine; but nothing a paying guest should xperience on a Friday night celebrating an anniversary.

There is no excuse for this

Room Tip: Avoid, you get what you pay for

That we offer "Family Suites" is clearly advertised on the front page of our website, as a result, (big suprise), some of our guests are families. The kids and baby you refer to in your review, are here this weekend to honor the memory of their dad who passed away unexpectedly four and a half months ago. He loved attending the Bow Hunter's Fesival, and they choose to stay with us this weekend to attend the festival in his honor. Though I appreciate your business, I appreciate theirs more.

As to the remodeling. We are "do it your-selfers" and work when we can, even if it's 7:40 at night. If we hired a contractor to remodel the third floor, he would be here at 7:30 in the morning making noise, which I'm sure would give you cause to complain as well.

On a sunny afternoon we took a ride to explore our beautiful state of Pennsylvania. We visited the Endless Mountains in Sullivan County and all along the way, stunning scenery awaited us. Even though it was very hot and humid, as we ascended the mountains the air became cooler and breezier. No wonder many people escape the summer heat by fleeing to the mountains!

We read about Cherry Mills Lodge Bed & Breakfast in a little "Guide to the Endless Mountains" that we got at a rest area. Also, I did further research by reading about it online. It was everything we'd hoped it would be!

From the highway, we turned off onto a little country road to get to the lodge. It was very big and looked like it might have been a hotel at one time. We were greeted by a large, friendly dog and soon the owners appeared. They were a charming couple who ran the lodge with the help of their children. All were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

We relaxed in comfy rocking chairs on the spacious front porch before we went to do some sightseeing . As we took in the scenery we were delighted by the pastoral farmlands, huge old trees, and the nearby Loyalsock Creek which flowed beneath a bridge. There was an overall feeling of peace and quiet, with only the sounds of birds chirping.

Our rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated with a few antiques and pretty lace curtains. The same was true for the rest of the lodge; it had a nice, comfortable feel. We felt as if we'd gone back in time. Our room was on the second floor; it didn't have air conditioning but there were several fans in the windows and they were sufficient to keep the room ventilated.

The homemade breakfast was delicious. We were given several choices and all turned out to be very good. It was so nice to be seated in the cozy dining room where we could smell the wonderful aroma of our food being cooked in the adjacent kitchen. Afterwards we chatted with the owner and he offered helpful suggestions of nearby places to visit.

During our stay, we took a ride to nearby Forksville to see the historic covered bridge. Also, we ate lunch at The Forksville Tavern. What a great restaurant! It was like a big hunting lodge, with mounted animals on the wall and knotty pine throughout. Best of all, the food and beer were fantastic.

We also visited World's End State Park, which was about 10 miles down the road from our lodge. It was one of the most beautiful state parks we've ever seen. Later, we had supper at the Whistlestop Inn, located in downtown Dushore. Our meals were delicious and the service was friendly. We liked it so much that we lingered at the bar in the back room after the restaurant was closed and we had a nightcap.

The next day we took the "long way" home and decided not to use the GPS. We came upon a winery called "Birdsong" out in the middle of nowhere. We were so high up in the mountains that it felt like we were literally on top of the world. The view of the surrounding mountains, valleys and farmland was breathtakingly beautiful.

We went through Wyalusing and stopped at the Wyalusing Hotel for a little respite. There we had some snacks and drinks and played several games of pool. It was impulsive and fun.
We came home through Tunkhannock and stopped at Twigs Cafe for a late supper.

In only a few days, we packed a lot in, but it didn't seem hurried because we did whatever we felt like -- no schedules or plans. I highly recommend a stay at the Cherry Mills Lodge and a ride through the gorgeous Endless Mountains.

Room Tip: We loved our room, but we also checked out the suite w/fireplace and it looked like a beautiful room...

Stayed here with my husband for our anniversary get away. We stayed in Room A for three nights and had a wonderful weekend. My husband wanted to buy the bed it is so comfortable. I am a clean freak and it met my standards of clean... it's one of the nicest places we have stayed. It's an old building with a lot of history and character and is a work in progress. Even while undergoing work and renovation the keepers make it an enjoyable place. We enjoy history and historic buildings so it was easy to overlook some of the details that could be improved upon... like the horse hair plaster needing repair in different areas. The breakfast was amazing and delicious the keepers are friendly and helpful. There is no television or air conditioning, my husband is always hot and he was even comfortable with a fan. As far as the television - it was nice to unplug and enjoy the outdoors, sip wine on the porch, read and play games. Not a place for you if you need constant entertainment, otherwise it is a great escape and we plan to back.

Room Tip: Suite A overlooks the creek below and you can hear it at night, it was roomy.

Spectacular! My wife and I just got back from a three night stay in Suite A, the Fireplace room, and we could not have been happier. Highlights: cleanliness, ambiance, breakfast and location.
Our room was actually a suite consisting of a sitting area/main bedroom, fireplace, bathroom, and another small bedroom in back. Our first impression was that it was very clean, felt very cozy, and yet also had plenty of space. Not at all claustrophobic the way that some B&B's are. The room was well-decorated, the bed was comfy, and the shower was great with what appeared to be unlimited hot water. We arrived late in the evening on a Friday, which was no problem for the proprietors. As a note, if you do arrive late or if there is no one around when you arrive, don't be shy about ringing the bell(s) on the table inside the door loudly. The inn is a farmhouse from the late 1800's, located literally on top of a beautiful rushing creek, and there is a bottom front porch as well as a second floor porch which face out over the creek for guests to enjoy. There is also a large living room with a fireplace for guests to read or play games/hang out in. Breakfast is served every morning from 8 to 9:30 in the dining area, which is large and inviting. Everything appears to be homemade, and is absolutely delicious. You get to choose from a menu of about 6 or 8 items or so. Highlights for us were the french toast, egg and sausage on biscuits, and of course the apple cider, which they make themselves. My wife and I very much enjoyed sipping our coffee (which is really good coffee) by the window overlooking the creek, with comforting music playing in the background. The hosts are kind, genuine, unobtrusive and practical. They have kids of an indeterminate number, have their own family stuff going on (naturally), and yet still make you feel like a welcome guest whose comings and goings are no problem whatsoever. My wife and I have been at B&B's where we felt like we had to give a report of our activities for the day, and that we couldn't escape in the morning without the innkeeper's blessing. Definitely not the case here, which we greatly appreciated.
Several things stood out that were pretty nice. For example, breakfast is available from 8 to 9:30 with no specific sit-down time. You show up during this window, you get fed, and you get fed fast, which makes scheduling your activities for the day easier. Second, location, location, location. The inn is 10 minutes from World's End state park and 15 minutes from Rickets Glenn. It is also less than a half hour from other towns in the area such as Laporte, Eagles Mere, Towanda, etc.
And finally, price. We stayed in a suite for three nights + breakfast for $315 plus tax. You can't beat that. We'll be back!
P.S. We also highly recommend the Whistle Stop restaurant in Dushore; we think almost everything they made was from scratch. They just redid their entire menu the week that we went (November 2012) and it was outstanding and extensive and even a little exotic, which was an amazing surprise considering the down-home local vibe that you get when you walk in. A real diamond in the rough.

The roomm we stayed in (A) was spacious and clean and the beds (one double, one twin) were very comfortable. It was so quiet at night I was surprised by seeing guests in the morning. However, in the high 80s with high humidity, the room was so uncomfortable for sleeping that we slept poorly. There is one box fan for one window and very little cross breeze. I understand that central a/c is likely out of the question, but what about a ceiling fan for the part of the room with the undecorated ceiling? Are a/c window units even a possibility? The bathroom was fine, nothing special, though the towels were very well used, almost scratchy so i would definitely recommend some new fluffy ones, including face towels, which were absent. Some hooks for those face towels would be helpful as well. The breakfast was good, with more choices than I had expected. I also appreciated that no fuss was made of our canceling our second night due to the heat and the rain (there is absolutely nothing to do in the area if the weather is bad).

Room Tip: A is quiet and is a good choice if traveling with one child, who sort of has her/his own room; there...

My girlfriend and I spent a three day weekend here. The setting was peaceful, relaxing, and quiet. The rooms were cozy, and clean. And we felt welcome by our hosts, the Kiners. The grounds surrounding the inn were scenic and wild. We enjoyed our stay so much, we plan to book again next spring. Love this place!!
