The house was very cozy. We had a good time. The fireplace was the best part because it was so cold outside. We hope to stay in the summertime and do some outdoor stuff. All in all the house was great.

EXCELLENT PLACE, GREAT PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH.

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I try to rent this house every year. It's perfect for what we need. The lakefront is beautiful, the house is very nice and the owners are very easy to deal with and accommodating. It's a great place to fish, kayak and relax by the fire in the evening. I'm sure we will be going back again. This year we saw a bald eagle, an osprey fishing and plenty of deer so it's a great place to enjoy nature.

PERFECT WINTER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cabin looking to get away from all the clamor of the city and spend a quiet and relaxing weekend in the Poconos--the lakeside cabin was perfect for this! It was in great condition when we arrived and during our stay we found it warm and cozy. It was also an inviting place to come back to after spending the day on Camelback Mountain. We highly recommend it and we will definitely be returning soon!

ANOTHER GREAT WEEKEND AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the lake house for another long weekend and it was everything we remember and more! The owners are great and the place is clean and has everything we needed. We loved sitting by the large roaring fire and relaxing. The kitchen is perfect for cooking a meal and hanging with the group around the large table. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely be going back.

The house was very cozy and the view of the lake was excellent. The owners were a pleasure to deal with during the entire process. I would definitely rent this house again.

HEAVEN ON EARTH ...

  • 5 of 5
Wow. Loved it! This was our first full week away and we couldn't have picked a better place. Camp Christel is simply perfect. Quiet. Peaceful. Restful. Beautiful. The listing, pictures and reviews were spot on, and the property was clean and well maintained. Corresponding with Joe was a pleasure. We would definitely recommend this lovely property - for anyone looking to get away from it all and simple just "be". There are things to do and places to go ... but once we got there - it was just too nice to leave! We will return and look forward to that very much. Thank you, Joe & Leanne, for sharing your lovely home.
