This home is available for any length of time - weekends, weeks, months, or season! Driving time from Philadelphia, New York, and New Jersey is just under 2 hours. The house was updated in recent years. New bedding, hot tub, Central Air Conditioning and carpets were installed. A nice home in a nice community.
8 of us rented this house for the 4th of July weekend and would definitely do it again. The house was much larger than we thought, it was absolutely spotless! It had everything we needed, a large deck, large kitchen, plenty of parking, walking distance to lake and close to anything you wanted to do. Tom let us in early and was on top of things for us, got the lease and the key to me very quickly. It definitely exceeded my expectations. I hope to bring everyone back during skiing season~! Thanks again Tom for making everything enjoyable and easy!
Had a great experience here for a guy's weekend. Working with the owner to get it scheduled was easy. The bedrooms are a little dated, but the kitchen and living room are brand new. Largest hot tub I've ever been in. The house was clean and well maintained.
House access includes a pass for the beach area down at Lake Harmony. There's beach volleyball, and toys/balls to borrow, and a cordoned off area to swim in.
The rate was better than most of the other places we looked at, so I was a bit concerned beforehand, but we couldn't have had a better experience. Great value.

Owner's Response: Chris,
I am glad you and your group enjoyed the stay at the house. Come back a 2nd time, and enjoy a discount!
Partially renovated house. Locks on bathroom still not functional -no privacy. Hot water always runs out. Expect to fly in the air if you rent this house. Owner is too picky. We rent 3-4 houses during the year in different states for years.This was the worst experience ever.I will never rent this house again.

Owner's Response: We have owned the house since 1983. We have updated most of the house, spending $30K in 2013 with more updates coming in the Spring of 2014. This tenant did not rent through Homeaway but instead through a local Century 21 broker.The tenant decided to leave a bad review after she learned that I was taking her to court for damages that her family did to the sections of the house that had just been renovated. Her issues- I received a call from the tenant during their first night, stating that their was no hot water, I was a bit shocked, 3 days prior there were no issues. She calls back about an hour later a bit embarrassed, they ran out of hot water because they gave baths to 4 kids. Five freshly painted walls had grape juice splashed on them by one of her children. It would not wash off. Damage was also done to brand new trim around a locked storage closet. Someone in her party had tried to "jimmy" the door. She claims that none of the teenagers that were there would ever do that. But yet it happened under her lease. She refused to pay for damages so it was taken to court. I arrived in court on the day of the hearing and she was unable to make it. No continuance was made by the court, however I spoke with the tenant from the court to try to work with her. She denied up and down that it was done by her kids, but I repeatedly stated that she was the first in the house since renovations, Renovations were complete 12/24/2013, and her lease started 12/27/2013. Damages and court costs were going to be $500. I talked with her on the phone and we agreed to $400. I believed this was settled. But obviously believes she will enact revenge by leaving a nasty review. Mila and her family left the house dirty and damaged. Multiple items were left behind including a toddlers mattress, a hair dryer, a trashcan of dirty diapers, and enough crumbs on the floor to fill the vacuum cleaner twice. As for being too picky, I would hope all landlords should be. Future rentals rely on me being so.
I always work with tenants that rent through Homeaway. I tell all of them, if you leave it clean as when you arrived, then you will not be charged a cleaning fee and will receive a discount on a future rental. I enjoy having responsible tenants just as much as responsible tenants enjoy having a good landlord. So, please take her review with tongue in cheek.
If she had rented from me directly, she also would have paid far less than Century 21.
