My family just rented 6 of the cabins at the Edinboro Lake Resort and I have to say overall, it was well worth it.
Let's start with the bad. When we first got there, the cabins were extremely warm as the owner did not open them up or turn on the A/C prior to our arrivals. I actually got keys for the remaining cabins and started their A/Cs. Next was the water issue. The cabins are on an inline water heating system which were not working right. The first couple of days, people ended up taking cold showers or no showers and rust/crud came out of the pipes every day. I myself started in a barely luke warm shower that went ICE COLD before the rinse. Next is the beds... The queen bed in the rear of the cabin has a short (4" maybe) matress on it that is VERY uncomforable. The twin bunks were the same from what I was told. Plus, the A/C does not adequately cool the rear room (I ended up buying a fan). Three of my family members slept on their couches because of this issue. Another issue is the WiFi. While it is free, you need to get on it when it works. I actually had a run in with the owner Phil because of this. As we were having an engagement and a wedding the same week, it really hurt posting of pics for the rest of the family to see or school work to be completed. My family knows that I'm technologically proficient and was shocked when the owner accused me of not being able to connect. One last thing. Phil needs to put the screen doors back on the sliders. Way to many bugs to just leave the glass doors open.
Now for the good. The cabins themselves are very nice and nicely appointed. You have all of the basics provided. Your view is of the lake (which is about 8 feet from your sliding glass doors) and the sunsets are great. You can actually walk from deck to deck without going down the stairs The grounds themselves are very conducive to family get-togethers and can be very entertaining for kids. Catching panfish and catfish outside your front door is a treat. There is also a nice sandbox, play area and beach (although the youngins in our group went in right in front of the cabins). On the north side of the property is a pavillion (which you will need to carry your picnic tables to) and the firepit. We utilized both and had a great time.
Once you get past Phil's personality, you realize he is not really a bad guy he just doesn't interact well. Here are a few things that will make your stay better: a fan, plastic utencils, aluminum foil for the baking sheets, an air matress for the beds, extra towels, fishing poles and bottled water (well water).
Overall, my family could not ask for a better place to be and we had a great time (we usually do). Somehow we even managed to adopts someone else's kid for a few hours. Not sure how that happened. Once Phil squares the issues away, it would be totally awesome. Would I come back? Absolutely. But, I will be better prepared and will enjoy every minute of it.
I didn't eat at the restaurant, but it looked like typical frozen bar food.
