The highest point in Eagles Mere, Pennsylvania, Crestmont Inn crowns a peak of 2,200 feet. To many, it’s a high point for another reason, too – namely, its quaint country charm. The bed-and-breakfast is an inviting getaway, each accommodation individually themed and each meal in the gracious dining room thoughtfully prepared, often with farm-fresh ingredients. Five-star reviews abound on TripAdvisor, and the stay’s even earned itself a spot in BedandBreakfast.com’s Diamond Collection.
The setting is another draw of the historic property and has been one, in fact, since the early days. When the inn first opened in 1900, many of its guests came to partake in all the forms of regional recreation available in surrounding nature: hiking, swimming, boating… These activities remain popular today, as do skiing and tobogganing in the winter, and the location in the heart of the Endless Mountains remains one of Crestmont’s greatest attributes – the jewel in its crown.
The inn’s 15 suites are spread across three floors. Each is individually decorated in the charming country style, and all have a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi and a private bath. Standard suites are the smallest of the bunch and hold a queen bed. You’ll also have a queen bed in the Deluxe suites, but the accommodation and its bathroom are larger; these suites also include a sitting area, refrigerator and a larger TV. Luxury suites, meanwhile, are very spacious and hold a king bed, plus a DVD player. Some of these roomy suites also have a fireplace and walk-in shower.
Seven days a week, the century-old Wash House is the setting for breakfasts of dishes like hearty vegetable omelettes and fresh pancakes. The restaurant also serves gourmet dinners, complemented by a pub-style menu of chicken wings and pizzas. Depending on the weather, you may have the option of taking your meal on the outdoor flagstone patio, which boasts a fireplace and a bar; otherwise, dine indoors, in the elegant main dining room or the pub room, which overlooks the woods.
In the heart of the Endless Mountains, Crestmont Inn boasts easy proximity to expanses of unspoiled nature, from forests to waterfalls to lakes to striking rock formations. It goes without saying that you’ll have lots of choice in the way of hiking, while fishing, boating, skiing, tobogganing and swimming are other activities that are available in certain seasons. You’ll also have your pick of two museums and a number of farm stands and quaint shops that sell such wares as elegant antiques and handmade jewelry. And if you’d like to visit a local winery, the hotel can recommend several within driving distance.
How to Get There
My husband and I stayed at the Crestmont Inn for 2 nights. We had such a wonderful time! Our room was beautiful and sparkling clean! The bed was firm and very comfortable. As this was an unusually hot weekend on the mountain the air conditioning was very welcome! The new management is fantastic! Very welcoming and accommodating. Staying at the Crestmont also allows you to have access/privileges at the lake and the Eagles Mere Country Club as well. The rooms are well priced and include a simple, continental breakfast. The restaurant is open on Friday and Saturday nights for dinner. The menu looked delicious. As we already had dinner plans with family we did not try it on this visit but we plan to on our next stay! It is also pet friendly if you want to bring your furry best friend with you! We highly recommend the Crestmont Inn for your next visit to Eagles Mere!
My Wife and I have stayed at the Crestmont many times. They Previous Owners are back and running it as a Guest House. We enjoy the Lake and it's beautiful beach. The Eagles Mere Air Museum is worth a trip. It now has a "Muscle Car" Museum for the same Admission. We had Dinner Saturday Night. They serve Salad Bar with Shrimp,Salmon and Chicken for $20 or You can have a Giant Steak dinner for $20. Hope to be back for Fall Foliage , if not sooner
Stayed over the Fourth of July weekend. Lovely and serene surroundings. Enjoyed the proximity of the village and the Lake. Loved that each room has its own theme. An ample complementary breakfast was provided. Our room was charming, comfortable, welcoming, and clean. No problems with online reservations. Current innkeepers are most hospitable.
