Our family has been welcoming guests for more than 70 years.
Frank (Mr. O.) opened The Hotel in Crystal Lake, Pennsylvania in 1946 when he was 26 years old. With: his wife, Palmina (center) ; lifelong collaborator, his sister, “Aunt” Jeanne (right) ; and their mother’s foundational recipes, many among three generations of family and friends-like-family have worked together since then to provide delicious food, service, and hospitality.
The Hotel comprises the Lakeside Cafe, the original indoor restaurant, and the Motor Lodge, offering overnight accommodations year round.
