ELEGANT LAKE HOUSE IN THE BEAUTIFUL POCONO MOUNTAINS

Blakeslee House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 8

Picture a place where children can play safely in their neighborhood, where people you don’t know, say 'hello,' and where once you pass through the entry gates of your vacation home, you are greeted by postcard views of the Pocono Mountains, and the Lake House.

Whether a lover of fine wine, an antique buyer, a zip liner, a ski enthusiast, a chance taker at the slots, a Nascar enthusiast, or, oh yes, a horse lover, and so many more activities, the Pocono Mountains will make that vision a reality.

Situated on Lake Sinca, this well-appointed home is located in the private community of Greenwood Acres, in the Lake Harmony area of Blakeslee, Pennsylvania. It is a 2 story, 2100 square foot lake-front home that has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A group of up to 8 persons can very comfortably occupy this home.

Located on the 1st floor of our home is the great room that has a gas fireplace and a 50' LCD TV with a DVD player. The modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, spacious countertops and a center island with seating, and is perfect for cooking. The kitchen is fully equipped with all basic cookware, dishware including a microwave, induction stove, coffee maker, blender and a toaster. Off the kitchen is a formal dining room. Located on the 2nd floor are 3 bedrooms which all have queen-sized beds. The den on the 1st floor has a pull-out queen sized bed also. High-speed wireless internet is available. Out back, dine al fresco on our spacious deck, enjoy boating on the lake, or sunbath or swim to your hearts content.

In the summer enjoy the water parks, or fish from our fully stocked fishing lake. For those race fans, Pocono Raceway is a stone's throw away. In the winter, ski Jack Frost/Big Boulder which is 8 minutes or Camelback Mountain for a little more of a challenge and is a convenient 15 minutes’ drive. You can also enjoy antique or outlet shopping, also within a convenient driving distance.

What guests have said: 'You have a beautiful home - we had a great time!' 'Thank you for the use of your lovely home. We had such a very nice time there.' '... your house is so close to skiing.'

Fun!: The Lake House overlooks Lake Sinca, conveniently situated between Jack Frost/Big Boulder and Camelback ski areas, where you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing in the winter. In summer, Camelback becomes Camel beach--an award winning water park with many amazing water rides. Nearby activities include several golf courses (including Jack Frost National, now open), miniature golf, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, horseback riding, antiquing, The Crossings Outlets, Hickory Run State Park, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, Jim Thorpe, Lake Harmony, Split Rock, Pocono Raceway as well as Pocono Mountain Festivals. If you want to try your hand at the tables or slots, we are approx. 20 miles from Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs’ casino. Our private, secure, four season community offers a lake with a private beach. The lake is stocked with fish (note: license required). Non-motorized boats only can be rented from one of the conveniently located rental shops minutes from the house. Guests are able to use row boat and/or paddle boat.

Housekeeping: Prior to your rental, our housekeeper will prepare the house to best accommodate your needs with freshly changed linens, however, please bring your own towels.

Note: We have a 2 night minimum rental.

More guests comments...

'I just wanted to say Thank You for allowing me to rent your home this weekend (6/29-7/1/12). It was absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for. It is conveniently located near so many things in the Poconos (not to mention Wawa and Dunkin Donuts) -- I think that is a huge selling point as well. It is secluded and definitely gives you peace and quiet, which we all need from time to time. The lake out back and the beach right next door was incredible.'

We chose this location because of its central location to all the wonderful amenities offered in Pocono Mountains. Blakeslee is also very convenient to most travel arteries, yet our location is often referred to by our guests as 'peaceful and private.' The fact that our vacation home is waterfront is a bonus.

Our vacation home is within walking distance to the beach area, yet it is very private.

New Year Escape

We had really a very good time. Everything was perfect. The house was warm when we arrived, the heat on. The house is big and spacious, the rooms are spacious, we were 10 and there was enough room for all of us to sleep comfortably. the kitchen was well equipped we were not in need of anything more that what was provided. Bathroom clean. The only problem is that the water for shower was weak no pressure for the water and it was taking for ever to finish the shower.
The out door was perfect. The kids spent lots of time on the playground even though there was snow even us as grownups we enjoyed it. We enjoyed the walk outside. It was calm and relaxing.
As a family we enjoyed the stay during the winter and we think or renting it again during summer time.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your overall great review. We really pride ourselves in making sure that each time guests arrive, they receive the best experience during their stay. We are sorry that a filter issue interrupted the great showers that we and our guests usually enjoy. We always have a handyman on call.

Everything was great. The house, the location, the lake, the amenities, everything. We had a great time, we relaxed and enjoyed the house and the lake. It is a very peaceful place and a very comfortable house.
The kitchen has everythin you need to cook your meals, and even has a BBQ outside.
I would recommend this house for anyone who is looking to get away for a couple of days, relax and enjoy themselves at a beautiful house with a very nice lake view.
The house owners were amazing and really accomodating.
Thank you for everything Janet!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. We strive to make the house as comfortable for our guests to enjoy as possible, and look forward to welcoming you again!!

prompt responses but not well equipped house

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: May 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
we stayed here for two nights to ski.

there were no proper cooking tools (i.e. cutting knife) available and when inquired, the response was not very helpful.

TV wasn't working properly. The screen was dark and couldn't fix. The owner emailed with the detail instruction to follow to fix but it didn't work and we didn't want to spend more of our precious vacation time trying to fix it so no TV for us for the whole stay. Hope the owner replaces the TV to a new one soon as it seemed like a common problem that the owner was aware of already.

Propane gas ran out in the middle of the night and lost the heat but was blamed for not reporting it earlier.(who knew the house was ran by propane gas and we loose the heat if no gas..and were we supposed to use the fire place only for few hours to prevent this to happen?!!)
person came out to fill it up in the middle of the night so our baby could sleep warm but woke her up and it became a tough night for us regardless.I suggest the owner to mention this to the guests so they can prepare to notice if the fiame disappears from the fire place.

Received the security deposit back more than 30 days after our departure.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I attempted to let you know how to adjust the television as best I could. My husband has now adjusted the television and it is in perfect order. We have several other knives in the kitchen, i.e., steak knives, regular knives, etc. Another cutting knife has been placed in the home. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, while our house was thankfully spared, lots of properties in the Pocono region weren’t so lucky and were damaged, and utility services to our area such as propane was limited which is why the propane ran out during your stay. I apologize for any inconvenience. During the short time that you were without propane, we had alternate heating available that you were able use. I am sorry that the delivery was made at a late hour, but we wanted to make sure your family was comfortable. As per our rental agreement, security deposits are returned within 30 days or after inspection.

Wonderful Poconos Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
We had such a wonderful time at this very well equipped home. It was very clean & had everything we needed to make our ski vacation a great one!!! We even had snow! We skied at Camelback & it was a short 20 min. drive. The house was in a perfect spot, 2 mins. to a grocery store & Dunkin Donuts. There is also a ski store right there as well for any last minute items needed that is a lot cheaper then buying at the mountain. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen every evening. Janet was excellent to work with. She returned emails & phone calls very quickly. If we ever get a chance to visit the Poconos again I would love to stay in this home. It was a lot larger then I thought. Plenty of room for our family of 6 & 2 friends for a total of 8.
Owner's Response: Cheryl,

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I am so very pleased that you and your family enjoyed your vacation and look forward to hosting your family in the future.

Best,

Janet

Wonderful weekend stay!

  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Had a great time at this beautiful lakefront home! It is well appointed, cozy and feels just like home. The lake is serene and a great place to relax especially watching the sun rise. The house is clean, well furnished and has all the comforts: a sitting area, formal dining, tv room and a nice deck. The owner also offers two boats to rent with a security deposit. The best part is that it is right next to the playground/picnic/beach area so you don't really need to go anywhere else for activities. Supermarkets, restaurants are also close by. The owner is great to deal with and would definitely recommend this property to others.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review; however, we just wanted to clarify: We allow our guests to use our boats and require that they sign a "Release of Liability" and also a security deposit which is returned once we inspect and make sure they are not damaged. We do not rent boats :).
