Me and my husband have three children and he works third and I work first when I booked this I though wow what a beautiful picture but when we got there it was wowwww what a beautiful everything it was quiet of course kind of disapointing you had to drive so far to eat!!! And the breakfast resturant was not to my taste they kept staring at us kind of weird I think because we were the only hispanic there and the food was not all that great but the Italiano Restaurante there ugh it was to die for it tasted wonderful!!! I recommend this place to couple who need a break and need some serious talking you hear noone see noone and love every waking minute of it !!!

"The three days we spent at Dockside were wonderful. We arrived early our first day and drove around to take took in the land and the scenic views. When we pulled into Dockside to check in, the view from our room and all the rooms was equally wonderful. The sunset casts beautiful colors on the ice on the water, we cannot wait to see it again in the warmer weather. We explored and used many of the pamphlets left in our room. Close by is the oldest drive in theater in the country and the oldest continuously open bookstore in the world (Moravian Book Shop, Bethlehem, PA). After our busy days out, the room was truly a special haven to come home to. The bed was super comfortable and the decor was very relaxing. We also really enjoyed the place where breakfast was provided; it was a delicious country meal to start the day with. We will recommend this place to friends as the owners are very nice and friendly and the town was exactly what we were looking for."

My husband and I stayed in the Elk Suite a while back. I didn't feel compelled to write a review at first but after reading these reviews I think there are a few things that potential guests should know. First of all, it's in the middle of nowhere. There are attractions, but not nearby, so do your research when planning to come stay here. Second, the whole breakfast set-up was kind off annoying. Sure you get to sleep in, but rather than walk down some stairs to a hot meal, you have to get up, make yourself completely presentable, and travel down the road to a seedy looking diner with a voucher for $15 total. How much did I pay for my room again?? Next, when filling up the jacuzzi, the hot water lasted about 5 minutes. So we had to keep waiting and waiting for more hot water. Finally, we settled for a lukewarm, half-filled tub. Not too relaxing. Not to mention our bed wasn't made for us the next morning and you only get one day of non-brand-name snacks/soda and an apple. Again, when we forked out hundreds of dollars for the suite I don't think it's too much to ask for a 2 days of Pepsi. On the positive side, the place is beautiful. The suite was elegant and the views are spectacular. We went to the Allentown and Bethlehem breweries and did some shopping in Bethlehem which was nice. Basically, if you're looking for a pampered, meet-your-every-need-and-spoil-you getaway, you should stay at another B&B. If privacy and quiet are your thing, you won't be dissappointed.

What a beautiful night away! We stayed in the Safari room 10/3/09 for my husband's 45th birthday, although it was a surprise to me! The room was FANTASTIC! So much better than I could have ever imagined. It reminded me of something I'd see at Walt Disney World! CLEAN & Beautiful! Thank you!
