“Great Kid-free Get-away!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

My husband and I stayed the weekend for his 35th birthday. We had a balcony suite with a jacuzzi (no T.V.). It was such a wonderful place to disconnect from day to day life. The staff was amazing, the spa- wonderful and the food was unique and delicious. Definitly would love to visit again durring the summer/spring! Maybe we will bring the kids.... maybe!

Room Tip: If you don't mind it- get a balcony and not the T.V. The view from the second floor is beautifu...

We had a king suite with fireplace and tv (some have no tv but have a balcony instead). Food at the restaurant was excellent. Vast wine list and great staffing made this a place we consider returning to.

Room Tip: Pick a suite over the dormitory size classic rooms.

Took my girlfriend here for a Valentine's Day/Anniversary getaway and she and I couldn't have been happier. The 5 hour drive from where we are wasn't the greatest, but it was worth it when we got there. Great staff, very friendly and attentive. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious, even from a limited menu. Accommodations were fantastic, spa was also great. Very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere, laid back activities. Don't really have anything bad to say about it, definitely one of the best b&b's we've been to and will definitely be repeat visitors.

Room Tip: stick with a suite or main room, heard from other guests not to book the historical rooms, but appar...

Our entire stay was fabulous from the extremely warm welcome received upon our arrival, to our impromptu decision to dine in w/out reservations (easily accomodated), to the excellent and considerate service provided by every employee we encountered, to the exceptional food, to the beautiful suite, to the incredible dining, to the wonderful massages. We were able to totally disconnect from our normal hectic life taking care of everyone else and simply focus on US. Thank you! We sing your praises to all our friends and family, hoping they too will want to enjoy this beautiful experience set in the woods.

This unassuming rustic lodge is full of delightful surprises. From the luxurious Aveda spa to the gourmet and allegory friendly menu options, I forgot I was in the middle of an ancient forest of PA. The hot tub/fire place suites were well worth the trip. But the real star of the show was the service. We got to know everyone by name and felt like family by the time we left. Highly recommend Gateway Lodge for sure!

After finding the deal online for a Valentine's package, my husband and I decided to take advantage of the getaway. After reading reviews on this site, I was cautious, but hopeful about the trip. We had an amazing time from start to finish! When we arrived, Jackie gave us a tour. We later attended the Friday night wine and cheese tasting. Dining was so pleasant we ended up eating there every night. Breakfast was also fabulous! We loved our room with its view of the rocky cliff. On Saturday, my husband surprised me with a horse drawn carriage ride. There were beautiful hiking trails in the nearby Cook Forest. The Valentine's dinner with wine pairings and music was very romantic, especially since we were seated next to the fireplace. The only negatives in the whole trip were 1. My fish was not properly scaled and deboned ( a shame because it was cooked beautifully) and 2. We felt housekeeping was a little lax as we expected they would wipe down sinks and tub as part of daily cleaning. I have to say, though,overall the experience was incredible...well worth the money and we will definitely be back!

This was our third time here in 20 years. It started out as a quaint rustic getaway lodge. Guest rooms were small, but food and service was excellent. Previous owners started to renovate, but did not get far. Current owners have done an amazing amount of work and have invested a lot of time, money and energy into this facility. New suites have been added with jacuzzis and fireplaces in each room, most with balconies. While the additions are new, the feel is still that of a rustic lodge. The rooms and exterior keep the timber and chinking look while providing modern conveniences. The Great Room is a good size room with a nice wood burning fireplace, good place to meet other guests about the days adventure. Meals are delicious and well portioned. While the front desk was very friendly, they are under-staffed. I can understand reducing costs, but check-in and check-out procedures need to be worked on a bit. I would not hesitate returning. It's a great place to unwind, keep that in mind and you'll be fine.

Room Tip: The luxury suites are in a 2-story wing, while other suites are available above the Great Room. Due...
