About Mary Lou Holtzman
Mary Lou and her husband purchased the Sweet Retreat in December 2014 as a family retreat and rental property. We currently live in Elizabethtown, PA and have recently retired from working with a chocolate company. We love being able to take long weekend trips down to the lake to enjoy all that the area has to offer. We look forward to making memories with family and friends and wish the same for all who stay at the Sweet Retreat.

Why Mary Lou Holtzman chose Huddleston
We chose this property for the spectacular water view. One step into the house offers a view that explains why we fell in love with and ultimately purchased this property. The neighborhood is quiet and very private.
What makes this House unique
The Sweet Retreat is located at a more peaceful end of the lake in a large open cove. However, it won't take you long to reach the big open water if that is what you like. Everything you need is just a short drive away - groceries, entertainment, restaurants.
100% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Perfect Family Vacation
Sweet Retreat is the perfect place to host a large family vacation. The home is super clean, updated, and beautifully decorated. Mary Lou went out of her way to make us feel right at home with a lovely welcoming gift and house manual should we have any questions. The view of the lake is spectacular and the water so warm. This is the best vacation rental experience I've ever had in 20 years of renting properties. You won't be disappointed.
This was our second stay at Sweet Retreat and we would recommend it to everyone. Beautiful home, fully stocked kitchen and lots of extras! Great for fishing, boating, swimming and relaxing. The homeowner goes the extra mile to make your stay great!
We loved the Sweet Retreat!
We had a wonderful time staying at Sweet Retreat! The house is gorgeous, has everything you would need to make your stay feel like home. Comfortable mattresses were the best surprise! A well stocked kitchen with every utensil you could need...Games for the kids, a fantastic firepit.... use of kayaks.. but nothing beats the view!!
Mary Lou was a fantastic host and was very easy to work with.
Would definitely recommend!!
Amazing lake property!
We had a great vacation at the Sweet Retreat. This was our 3rd time staying at this property and it never disappoints. It's a very comfortable home with many amenities, including kayaks, a fire pit, and a pool table. A great place for a family vacation!
Love this lake home!
The home is on a very quiet street in Mariners Landing. No traffic at all to contend with. We loved all of the windows on the lake side of the house. Beds super comfy, kitchen well stocked, home was very clean, and there were plenty of comfortable places to hang out inside. We loved the dock and the mooring whips to protect the boat and dock from the wake of other boats. We had a fire one evening and made s’mores with the gift items from Mary Lou the owner. She also called shortly after we got there to make sure that everything was ok. She was very easy to work with. We hope to return again!
Great family house
2nd time staying in this perfect home on SML. The added living space this year was a bonus, the fire pit made for some great evenings of winding down from a busy lake day. The house is comfortable and well supplied for our needs. The best part for us is the huge dock, deep water and mooring whips for our boat, 4th of July week is crazy busy on the water. Mary Lou is easy to work with, we enjoyed our week just as much as the first time we rented from her!
