“Be Careful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

Lodge in Name only. More like a motel. Stayed in Mountainview suite and room was perfectly clean with a lot of room, just like the pictures. However, pool looked nice, but was closed. Grounds needed much attention, piant, overgrown areas, encountered garbage pile in the woods. You would figure a Lodge would have a Lodge. Yes but it was closed.
Probably should drop the prices $30 for each category and just call it a motel and they would probably do better than the 5 rooms they had rented for a beautiful fall holiday weekend.

Room Tip: All rooms were clean and good size

Tried to stay in one of the cottages....everything was covered in MOLD. The smell made my wife and I physically ill. The couch and bed were also damp and our clothes got wet from sitting on them.

I booked this place for my boyfriend and I. We arrived at the place and it was so horrible we didn't even get out of the car! It was sketchy, dirty and absolutely run down. Just looking at how run down and unkept everything was from the outside we knew we couldn't stay there. The so called "cottages" were run down and dirty, the supposedly plush greenery was a joke. The grounds were dirty with leaves, branches and garbage all around, definitely no green grass anywhere around. The glass-enclosed indoor swimming pool was dingy and surrounded by chairs and tables that were strewn all around. Since we didn't actually stay, I can't say what the rooms would look like but I can just imagine! The outside alone is a nightmare. I can't stress enough how bad this place was. Don't bother booking it under any circumstances. I would hate for anyone to go through the same disappointment as I did and drive all the way there and have to replan their trip because of this place's false advertising. Don't waste your money on such a bad place!

This used to be a great place to stay. Since new owners took over a few years back, the Hillside Lodge has taken a turn for the worse. It is dirty and poorly maintained, particularly the bathrooms. The jacuzzi was nasty looking--hair from previous tenants and film of soap scum. The outside amenities--games,etc are horribly overgrown and useless, It is overpriced too. We would suggest staying somewhere else.

We just returned from our third stay at Hillside Lodge in Canadensis. Initially, we were looking for a romantic Poconos getaway. I was born and raised in the Poconos and love the romatic atmosphere but wanted nothing to do with the tacky couples resorts, yuck! So, I found the Hillside Lodge on the internet and after speaking with the owner we gave it a try.
Our first trip we stayed in the Enchanted Cottage for a romantic weekend. We were very surprised at how modern and clean the cottage is! The three cottages are aligned so that the deck is private and you cannot see the other cottages (and they cannot see you either!) The cottage is large with a tastefully decorated livingroom with fireplace and kitchenette. The king size canopy bed was adorned in ivy to match the decor. The modern and spacious bathroom has a shower large enough for two! We reallly enjoyed the jacuzzi for two by candlelight! The entire cottage was spotless!
We stayed for New Year's in the Mountainside suite and found it to be just as beautiful and spotless as the cottage! It was very similar to the Cottage with a full living room with fireplace, kitcenette, deck, king bed and two person jacuzzi. (Plenty of hot water for the jacuzzi!) The entire town was picture perfect during the holidays! Perfect romantic getaway!
We just got back from a two night stay, in Mountainside suite #9 again! Our stay was so relaxing and we love the private time together! During this stay, we took a dip in the pool. The entire pool area was beautiful! The pool was sparkling clean and we enjoyed the hot tub too!
The owner and his family are wonderful! very accomodating and a pleasure to deal with. They definately allow you privacy, but are only a phone call away if you need them. The housekeeper was very pleasant and did a much better job than we expected! She waited until we had left for breakfast and we came back to a spotless room and fresh sheets and towels!
We have grown very fond of the Hillside Lodge and find it a great escape from our hectic jobs. We have recommended to others and we will be back soon!
