GREAT VIEWS OF THE LAKE! A newly renovated lakefront home with a 5 person hot tub at the edge of the lake. The comforts of home are lakeside now. We have a 2 person kayak and a 3 person paddle boat. A gas fireplace in the living room and and a oak electric fireplace in the master bedroom creates a cozy, romantic feeling. The kitchen is fully stocked. A large deck overlooks the lake with amazing sunsets and a gas grill. There is a hammock for 2 and a fire pit at the lake's edge. We have a private dock for fishing and a floating dock to swim out to. It is very quiet, peaceful, and beautiful inside and out. This lakefront rental is best for small families or a couple that wants to get away from it all in a great romantic setting. This lake is peaceful, and private so please avoid loud music or excessive noise outside especially after dark. Renters must be 25 years or older and a lease agreement & deposit is required.

Fall Foliage: The fall foliage has begun! This lakefront home is centered in the higher elevations of the Pocono mountains. It is surrounded on all sides by mountains that tower over the lake providing a spectacular panoramic of color. You can walk in the nearby State forest with wide trails that follow the mountains crest. Bring your camera to capture the explosion of colors as the leaves change.
Winter: Ski season is almost here! Camel back is 25 minutes South of the lake and Montage is only 25 minutes North! Montage Ski resort was bought by a new company and has added Millions of dollars in upgrades- making it a great place to ski. There is now a Starbucks, a Panera's, and many many new upscale stores at the base of the mountain. It is great to sit at Starbucks and watch the people come down the slopes. For an even better view, just sit at the huge glass windows of the ski bar and watch people ski. Better yet, get on the slopes too! Then you can rest your tired muscles in the hot tub when you get back home.
The frozen lake. : In the winter people ice fish as soon as the lake ice is thick enough. They sometimes drag their bar BBQ grills out on the lake. Some people drill a hole, catch a fish, and cook it right there. They throw it on a hamburger bun and make fresh fish burgers. Sometimes people set up fishing huts and bring quads or snowmobiles out with them. When the moon is full and the lake has snow on it it is like daytime at midnight. When there is no moon you can clearly see the Milkyway and a trillion other stars and constellations. There is a star map on the wall in the house. Also, some people shovel the snow off the ice and skate or play ice hockey.
This home is located on Lake Henry, ( Formally Blueberry Lake) about 20 minutes from lake Wallenpaupalk. It is a large lake, about 450 acres, with only 114 lakefront houses on it. It is set high in the mountains and surrounded on all sides by mountainous terrain. In the summer the green mountains tower above the lake and in the fall the colors are incredible as they change for miles in every direction. There are eagles, Beavers, deer, turkeys etc and large tracts of state land with wide trails for walking or biking. The sunsets are blinding from the deck. In the winter the lake freezes for ice fishing, quadding, snowmobiling and ice hockey.
Golf: There are many very nice golf courses in the area. Also, there is a great driving range about 5 minutes from the house. I have never had to wait for a tee time. They are all basically very uncrowded, walk on courses.
