Eagles Mere is a great day trip or a lovely place to stay for a relaxing vacation or weekend. Know before you go, though, that this is a QUIET little town, very lovely but seems to embrace the lazy, hazy days of summer. Most places don't seem to open until 11:00 and then close at 4:00. By 6:00, you feel you're in a Twilight Zone episode and wonder what happened to all the townspeople. It is very pretty and there's enough State Parks, museums, restaurants, wineries and other attractions to fill up your time for a day or a weekend. It is also very dog friendly and seemed like everyone living there, or visiting, had a dog. Keeping with the quietness, I never actually heard a dog bark, though. We were there for a weekend, staying at the Crestmont Inn, which I'll review separately. Visited the Eagles Mere Museum and shops; the Air and Auto Museums, Worlds End State Park, and the Artisan Alpaca Farm (loved that). Great hiking or just walking/driving around looking at some beautiful Victorian homes. Perfect if you want a quiet, enjoyable day or weekend trip.

Eagles Mere was developed during an economic, resource based boom in the nearby communities-- in the late 19th Century!! The lake shore has been protected due to a prohibition against tree cutting near the shore. The community and its large summer homes has been listed for 20+ years. It is a truly delightful small town to visit!!

Visited a farmer's market, book store, 3 very interesting museums, and 3 gift shops. Enjoyable day! Eagles Mere museum was full of exhibits, some of them with audible recordings. Cod spend an hour just in the museum. In the museum, miniatures were in one room with a model train in another room. Air and auto museums were very impressive.

Only 120 people in winter but 3000 in summer. Many summer homes in this very private resort area around a 114 acre private lake. Only one road passes through the hamlet (PA 42) and don't expect to get gas or find a large store of any kind. They have a small convenient store below the museum and an ice cream/restaurant place across the street from the museum. Visit the museum and learn the history of this mountain resort dating back to the early 1800's. There is a hotel and some B&Bs located there. If you ride a motorcycle it's a good rest stop. At one time there was several upper class hotels during it's hay day of the late 1800's- early 1900's. Little remains of them now though.

There is SO MUCH to enjoy in this charming old historical mountain resort town! Make a weekend of it if ya can! Stay at Crestmont Inn for sure.....gorgeous, pampering and romantic Bed and Breakfast with a lovely on-site fine dining restaurant for leisure candle lit dinners with your Sweetheart! ;) Eagle Mere Lake is crystal clear. There's a lovely lakefront pavilion on Lake Ave. with an old dock where one can relax on the edge, with toes dangling in the water. Ladies, be sure to check out The Lily Pad Boutique for the most tasteful gift items, clothing, jewelry, hand bags and such! Finally, take a relaxing stroll and/or bike ride through this lovely historical town, taking in all the old gorgeous estates, cozy homes and architecture! You'll feel all the stress of normal everyday life just melt away!
