A Very Special Estate: Welcome to Himmlischer Chateau (Heavenly Home), where the dream, group vacation experience comes together through the eyes of an award-winning developer and theme park designers. Himmlischer is more than a house – it is an entertainment venue purposely designed for groups of all ages. This may well be the nicest house for rent in the Poconos but why take our word for it, click the web site link at the bottom and read our customer reviews.

Location Details: Location

Himmlischer is located at the top of a private four season community complex, offering year round activities. The lodge, restaurant, bar, food market, pool, tiki bar, waterslides, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and bocci ball courts are right next to the house at the lodge. You won't get run over while teaching your kids how to ski here and you park just once and ski-in and out the whole week or use our 6 passenger custom limo golf cart to get around in spring, summer, and fall. There is also a fitness center, beach, horseback riding, fishing, boats and sport courts to use. A spa with indoor pool, golf, rafting, canoeing, paintball, Eagle Institute observation area, museums, miniature golf, go carts, batting cages antiquing and family fun park are all minutes away.

House Design: The center piece of the top floor is a commercial, Tapan-Yaki steak house kitchen and nicer furniture and cabinets than I have in my own home. Before drafting the house, we blueprinted the fun for every activity and part of our think-tank process was considering where adults and children of each age group would congregate. Adults savor the top floor most often and teenagers congregate in the game room. We put plasma TV’s and DVD players in 3 of the bedrooms so that parents can put cartoons on for toddlers.

The first floor was designed for families with the youngest children in mind. Since they are usually the first to wake up and go to the game room theater, everyone else above them can still get some sleep. We also recognized how hard it can be to get kids to eat when they are having fun, so we put an extra kitchen on this level and a card table.

Every conceivable thing that you will do here, we have done at other rentals and brainstormed about making it better.

Please be sure to also view our Seashore and Ski-in/ski-out Houses in New Jersey, West Virginia and Cozumel Mexico at or click the link at the very bottom of this listing.

THis is such a beatutiful house with everything you need to live in and have fun with your friends. Perfect place to stay away from the city and enjoy the peaceful life. It is so nicely renovated and have full equipment for entertainment.

Luxurious Camping

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I look forward to backpacking and mountain biking around Dolly Sods every year. While we have stayed at great places before, this one is vastly superior. We did enjoy our usual outdoor fun, it was lack luster compared to the features inside. The game room was amazing, the bedrooms unbelievable, and the outside deck with hot tub and grill was remarkable. What out did all of this was the main floor. I had no problems cooking for everyone on the huge hibachi grill while everyone entertained themselves with the projection screen TV. Some of us were even bold enough to get behind the dance screen, with the surround sound; it felt like our own personal dance studio.

Our Secret Ski Spot

  • 5 of 5

We come to Himmlischer every year because we love it here. It’s is the only thing that we look forward to during winter. The house is beautiful. Everyone knows which room they get so the first thing we do when we get there is head right out on the mountain. This is so simple since the house was built right on the mountain. We put our skis on and head right out the back door. When we are finished, we ski right back in. The best thing we found to do after skiing all day is to head right to the sauna and right out to the hot tub. The features inside the house do not disappoint. A full movie screen in the living room and in the basement with full surround puts you right into the movie. We already ready booked our trip for next year.

Perfect for every Mood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a guys' weekend, playing poker, golf, and grilling. Home has all the modern conveniences, but still remains cozy and comfortable to provide that log cabin feel. Some of us wanted to take it easy and watch movies, others wanted to read on the porch, and others wanted to be a little more adventurous and take a hike in the woods in the back. Just arrive and let everyone do what they want. The home is truly perfect for every mood. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Enjoy the stay!

This house is RIDICULOUS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in a lot of beautiful homes for events like this, but this house definately takes the cake. All I will say is that the pictures are really nice, but they dont even do it justice.

We stayed for a 3 day bachelor party weekend and this house had everything we could have asked for and then some. With 14 guys, I was originally worried that there wasnt going to be a space large enough for eveyone to just hang out, but the top floor and the basement level both were big enough for the entire group.

Between the outdoor seating area, the hot tub, the sauna, the pool table, the bubble hockey game, the video games (3 different systems), the audio linkages for constant music options, and the two projector screens for tv, you cant possible get bored.

Additionally, we chose to cook all of our meals. The commercial kitchen appliances, huge outdoor grill, and tempanyaki grill inside, plus two fridges made feeding 14 men a breeze.

The sleeping arrangements were also an original concern of mine, but that also proved to be no issue what so ever. Every bedroom is sizable (especially the 2 masters which are the size of an entire NYC apartment). Additionally there is a 15 foot couch that coul have easily slept two people, but that was unnecessary as there was enough additional rooms/ blow up mattresses for the group.

Finally I would say that you would be hard pressed to find another house that is as well maintained as this one. Everything was spotless when we arrived, and everything fuctioned perfectly. Scott was hands on during the booking process and made everything very easy on us, and when we ran into one small issue he was all over it.

Also to get the full enjoyment of the house I would recommend that you take the 20-30 mins to watch the instructional videos and read the welcome packet. This house has so much to offer, which can be easily missed if you are unaware of the fuctionality.

All in all I would say that if you considering this house, stop your searching now and just book it. You will be glad you did.

Amenities that may need repair during your stay Our dream homes have a great deal of electronics and equipment such as hot tubs, computers, wireless routers, theaters, cable TV, bubble hockey, TVs, stereos, fireplaces, etc. These items receive about 20 times the use of products in a typical home. In many ways our homes are like an amusement park that may occasionally have an attraction that is out. We buy quality items, keep them maintained and buy service contracts on them but we do not guarantee them and unfortunately they are not immune to breakdowns and occasionally need repairs. We keep spares of some items, call repairmen immediately, but will NOT provide refunds if an amenity is not working due to circumstances beyond our control. INTERNET SPEED We buy the fastest internet speeds available but since our homes are in remote locations, it will be slower than you are used to at home and others in your party may have to log off to stream audio and video simultaneously.
