The communal pool and beach area is only one house away. This block is very quiet because there is no thru traffic on this street so there's alot of privacy.

More about the house: Our lake front home has many great things for family and friends to enjoy. Swim right off your dock, go fishing, play some pool or just relax on the deck and listen to the calmness of the lake, or the birds chirping in the sunshine. We have a treadmill in the basement and that overlooks the lake as well. The 2 living rooms have pull out queen size sofa beds if extra beds are needed. This house has 3 full bathrooms which all have showers. There's one on the first floor, one in the master bedroom, and one on the second floor.

The electric motor will make it easier and more pleasant to access the lake. We tried to think of everything to make this a wonderful vacation home. Everything that you find in this home from furnishings to all kitchen appliances are completely brand new and very comfortable.
We will do our best to accommodate your needs and to make your stay a vacation that will never be forgotten.
As you might be doing right now I had spent about 2 weeks searching houses looking for the right fit for my group of 10. We chose Floras house because of her prompt responses and wealth of pictures of the house and info of the area. The information package gives you plenty of things to do and details where to get anything you might need for your stay. The house had more than enough room for 10 of us and with 2 living rooms and ample room downstairs(all with tvs and plenty of channels) everyone could do as they please and we never felt crowded. The house is in great shape and having 3 bathrooms with showers is also very convenient for a large group. We had a great time playing pool, barbequing, playing board games, and watching movies. The home is near everything you could ask for(having the Walmart and Shoprite a few minutes away was great) and the Casino is only a quick drive away which was nice as well. Also "Smokin Vittles" is a great smoked bbq joint that recently opened less than 5 min from the house which was delicious. Anyway I give the house 2 thumbs up and would definately deal with Flora again in the future as it was an absolute pleasure.
My family and I have been renting this house for three years now. The six of us all work so we look forward to a quite vacation away from the stress of our Brooklyn home. This house has given that to us. We also have a grand child who has grown up knowing this house as our retreat. At the age of two, she spoke of the house as "The Pennsylvania House". Flora, the owner is a wonderful host. When you walk in, you will find a bottle of wine sitting in the middle of the table. She is very responsive and believe me, I have been renting for many years now, there are many bad owners. We keep coming back because she makes us feel welcome and wanted. In return we do our best to return the house to how we found it. Over all you cannot beat this house for all of the amenities which include a motorized boat, patio, plenty of parking, community beach and pool, playground and plenty of thing to do in the area. I would recommend this house to anyone. Hope you enjoy it as my family and I have. We have created many memories here as I am certain you will too.
My husband and I had a fantastic time in the Poconos. Flora’s house is very big, clean, has all the amenities that a vacation house should have, and best of all, it’s very close to everything we wanted to do: NASCAR, casinos, shopping, and hiking. It rained during much of our stay; I would have liked to do more tanning on the beach, tennis, biking, and boating. We look forward to vacationing in the Poconos again and will consider coming back here..
I have been meaning to write a review for some time. My parents and I stayed at Flora's place back in September 2011 and we are still talking about what a wonderful, peaceful vacation we had.
I did a lot of research looking for lake front property on a motor-free lake because my parents were bringing their canoe, and I was bringing my kayak. This lake was gorgeous and quiet. My dad even got in some good fishing time. (I never did get my fishing license)
I was also looking for a pet friendly house because my parents have two dogs and I have one. It was wonderful to have all three approved (after discussion with owner of course)
Lastly, I was looking for clean. My mother is a stickler and I knew she'd have a fit if we arrived in a smelly or unclean home. Naturally it bore the marks of a home shared with many renters, but all very minor. Bathrooms and kitchen were immaculate, and so were the kitchen utensils and dish-ware.
We had all we required and when we had a random moment of mishaps on the first night, Flora responded immediately and remedied our minor issue. (which I won't go into because it was just a silly against the odds type of bad luck thing that I don't expect ever happened to anyone else, nor ever will again). My point is, that even the unexpected was met with calm resolution and sincere concern.
The outside of the house was in just as good shape; well maintained. The view of the lake from the back porch was the best. My parents loved sitting there and just looking at their canoe sitting docked on the private dock. (my kayak remained on the lower porch because there was the house's row boat on the other side of the dock and leaving it on the grass would have killed the BEAUTIFUL lawn)
My father took advantage of every single large TV in the house, and we all enjoyed the pool table downstairs.
We encountered many deer during our walks, and watched from our windows in the morning as deer walked around the yards.
Flora gives very specific directions/rules for staying in her home so a guest should have no questions, doubts, or concerns.
I'm sure I'm missing something here in my review, but I've touched on all the things that were important to us. And of course waking up to see a gorgeous lake and beautiful trees outside of my bedroom window was a very nice bonus.
We are all hoping to have a return visit to Flora's house.
We stayed at Flora's house 2-9 July 2011 with my sister-in-law and her family. There were 10 of us total and with the house so large e never in each other's way. The rooms are huge and having 3 full bathrooms was a definite plus. We had a fabulous time! We enjoyed everything about it including the deck where we hung out most evenings, the boat, the pier, the paddle boats, the beach, the pool and the fire pit and of course the beautiful weather. The house was immaculate when we got there. The kids were well occupied everyday between fishing and swimming and enjoying the ducks and deer that visited us daily. The guys fished every day and caught many fish. The view from the dock was breathtaking. The evening pool tournaments were so much fun. I would definitely recommend this beautiful house by the lake and I hope to be able to come back again soon. We made a week full of memories at the lake that will never be forgotten. Flora is awesome, she was very responsive and definitely cares about you as a renter.
My friends and I (10 people, 1 dog) stayed at Flora's house for a weekend in February 2011. We had an awesome time. The location was perfect....everything was within a 10-30 minutes travel time. Almost every place we went to was on the same road. Some of the places near the home were a candle house, horror house, a gun range, horse-back riding, Mount Airy Casino, and Camel Back Mountain. All of the pictures she provided were very accurate and the house had all of the amenities and necessities you would expect. Flora even called to make sure we got there ok and wanted to make sure we were able to find everything we needed! :-) Absolutely one of the best vacations we've taken. We will DEFINITELY be renting this house again in the near future.
