4 SEASON GETAWAY--HDTV, HOT TUB, POOL TABLE, BEACH---5 NIGHTS IN AUGUST OPEN!

Lake Harmony House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

5 nights midweek in the end of August--Monday the 24th to Friday the 29th--is all we have left open this summer. If you are looking for a deal, you can have all 5 nights for only $600!

Are you a worrier who doesn't know what to expect when you open the door of your rental property? Our regulars look forward to finding what we added or upgraded each year!

We renovate and refurbish our houses regularly--this year in this house, we just added a wall mounted, 60' HDTV in the living room, along with plenty of other new furniture renovations!

This is a really well maintained home right in Lake Harmony--so you'll be close to Big Boulder, all the Lake Harmony restaurants, or you can cook out on the grill on the deck. In the right weather, the deck is a great place for morning coffee or an after dinner drink, too!

We also redid both bathrooms so they are updated, bright and clean--and we also put in a brand new kitchen (new cabinets, countertops, backsplash) with a new flat top stove (also easy to keep clean!) We pride ourselves in keeping our properties in great condition so you won't have to worry about any unpleasant surpises!

This large house is fully-equipped for your vacation needs. Six-person, covered, outdoor hot tub, large in-wall A/C unit to cool the entire upstairs (downstairs stays cool without A/C), two TVs with expanded cable and 30 digital music channels, broadband internet access (so bring your laptop), a large supply of DVDs, pool table, a full-size refrigerator on each floor (you can use the downstairs one to store all your refreshments and extra ice!), a washer and dryer, and two romantic gas fireplaces for off season and winter renters. There is an upstairs deck with furniture and a downstairs covered patio. Plenty of (brand new) windows in the living room/dining room, so it is always bright and airy. You don't have to worry about the weather - there's plenty to do at the house!

Lake Harmony has its own community beach, and we are very close (within 2 miles) of H2OOO, the indoor water park at Split Rock, and the Galeria (movie theater, shops). We have a large circular drive (no longer permitted, but we were grandfathered in, so you'll appreciate not having to keep moving everyone's cars to get out). We are close to the Lake Harmony restaurants, beach and food store. And Lake Harmony does not have the daily car or renters fees that some other developments charge, so renting here is quite a Poconos vacation deal! You also can easily travel to Camelbeach, The Outlets, Mohegan Sun Casino (at Pocono Downs), Jim Thorpe or go white water rafting on the Lehigh River--all are within an easy 30 minute drive (or less). There is also horseback and bicycle riding (and rentals) in the area.

If you're just into a relaxing vacation---you can just hang out at the house. Have some quiet time on the deck with your coffee or cocktail, spend a lazy afternoon in the hot tub, play some pool, or just watch some of our many recent DVDs.

Pets are permitted with an additional security deposit. We are family-friendly - don't make Sparky stay home! Late checkout is sometimes available, especially on weekend rentals (but usually not in the summer). Sorry, no young groups, no proms, no high school graduation parties without adults staying, too.

All of our houses are set up so your party will not be 'squeezed in'. However, we only allow up to 10 adults or a family of 12---not 12 adults. We have a large dining room table that easily seats 8, with an additional side table for 4 nearby. You'll find many homes have only counter space for eating, since the dining room is being used for extra sofa beds or a pool table. We have seen houses that sleep 20 but only have 4 or 5 bedrooms and a table for 4. We don't look for the type of group that would be comfortable in that situation--we prefer families, 'grown-ups', and groups or couples that often can't get away because they need some one to watch their pet.

We have an optional $100 cleaning fee. If you leave the house as clean as you received it, we do not charge you for cleaning. Hardly anyone has this money saving offer--all the realtors will automatically charge you for cleaning (and that's in addition to other fees). Since we're in the area, we also check the house ourselves and make sure everything is in working order, and we're available if anything needs repairing or if you need assistance figuring out how to work something!

And since we're in the area, we have a hot tub maintenance business for other rental property owners who do not live nearby---so you know our hot tub is always clean and in good operating condition!

PLEASE NOTE!!! For YOUR protection, we only accept payments by check sent to our home address (not a PO Box), through Paypal, or by cash paid directly to us--and then only at check in! And we never, never ask for a wire transfer or use MoneyGram--there are scammers trolling VRBO sites who ask for payments through them.

Great Mother's Day

Great Mother's Day
  • 5 of 5
We had an extended weekend for a family gathering---6 adults, 2 children and a dog. The house was perfect! We have stayed at this owner's lakefront properties before, but they were all booked so we tried out this house and were very happy. There is a large HDTV upstairs with plenty of DVDs, which kept the kids busy, and there is a second refrigerator and kitchen next to the pool table area, so we were able to keep all of our sodas and beer cold without cramming the regular refrigerator. We used the pool table and hot tub non-stop during our stay, too, and it really helped that the hot tub is covered overhead, because we had a rainy day but were able to stay in it anyway. The beds and furniture were in good condition, and the bathrooms were very obviously redone and were very nice and clean. The house in is an area that has a lot of local restaurants, most reasonably priced, but there is only one food store really close, and it is just a 7/11 type place, so you should bring your food or make a trip to the town nearby for any major food purchases--but we didn't find that to be much of a problem. There are a lot of deer, and you will see them every day, and they will come closer if you throw them any food. We got lots of great deer pictures, and our dog is even in one! We had a great time, the owner Michael was very easy to work with, and we will now not be so picky about being lakefront--this house was very roomy and well kept. Thanks, everyone said they loved it!

The Broken Water Heater Stay: 8/6/2012-8/10/2012

  • 4 of 5
4stars for the house, 4stars for the owner.
FIRST, THE HOUSE
Great: Roomy and the prices (at least in 2012) were great for the space. Living rm and dining rm are wonderful, roomy, with a good view. Plenty of seating in the dining rm(12). Good couches, good AC, good kitchen.
Good: TVs upstairs and downstairs are CRT units w/basic cable. Hot tub is good. (Maybe great? I don’t spend enough time in hot tubs to know the difference.)
Average: 2 bedrooms upstairs with queen beds. 3 bedrooms downstairs, 2 with queen beds and one with bunk beds. Our bed (in basement) dipped some toward the center. It was average – not super comfortable but not uncomfortable either. Linens were not included, but we knew that up front so no complaint. The pool table shows age, but works fine. I have no complaints about the pool table, but I could see an aficionado being disappointed.
Bad: Basement had noticeable musty smell when we arrived. We aired it out and that helped. (Wife said it never went away.) Local grocery stores – overpriced and poor quality control. If you’re cooking, I recommend bringing what you can or making a long trek to Mount Pocono a half-hour away.
SECOND, THE OWNER.
We stayed from Mon-Fri and had no hot water from Monday to Thursday. Day before we checked in, Michael (the owner) called to let us know about it & gave us a chance to back out or accept a discount. He indicated the worst case would be a Tuesday repair. We were already packed and it would only be one day, so we agreed to accept a free cleaning and checked in the next day. (Better than canceling our vacation or searching for a last-minute opening elsewhere.) Each day the repair was supposed to be done ‘the next day’, so we stayed and accepted discounts for the inconvenience on no hot water. He also arranged for us to shower twice at another house (inconvenient - esp w/kids). There was a disagreement about what fair compensation was for the last day, but we agreed to split the difference. 4 stars because I think we requested reasonable compensation for the last day. But I know Michael was acting in good faith. In the midst of a disagreement we reached a compromise where both sides walked away satisfied. If we’d known it would be all week, probably wouldn’t have gone in the first place, but it worked out okay.
Extra endorsement for Michael: we forgot towels. Mid-week, when the owner brought the key for the house where we could shower, he also brought over some bath towels.

Fun Times

  • 5 of 5
Our group was 10 adults for thanksgiving and we were very comfortable-- there were enough pots/pans , plates and glasses. The house is nicely decorated and doesn't feel out of date with furniture, etc. We used the hot tub many times and it was really nice. We had a faucet leak but landlord came to fix it within the half hour. Saw lots of deer. House is about a 5 minute walk to the lake. Deck is nice for BBQing and deer watching.
Cons:
The only music speakers for upstairs is through the TV, but it has cable music stations so if you like that its fine.
Beds are quite variable, some are firm and some are really really soft.

Great get away spot

  • 4 of 5
This place was perfect for our group. We had 6 adults and 3 kids. The upper and lower living rooms were perfect so we could watch separate shows and not disturb people who wanted quiet time. The hot tub was just fabulous in the cool evening. We had no problems with the house and the owners were great to deal with.

Great for big families!

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for a big house with almost the same amenities on both floors, this house is perfect! We are a family of 3 and didn't even use the basement (except for the pool table), but two families could very easily stay in this house comfortably. It was easy to see that the kitchen and bathrooms were recently renovated and are very nice. Staying in a house with air conditioning was wonderful! If you are worried about a cigarette smoke smell (because smoking is allowed), don't be. I have allergies and did not smell anything. But, I want to be completely honest to help others who will be staying at this house. The beds (speaking only about the upstairs), were the worst beds we have ever slept on. They are extremely firm and very noisy if we moved. Our daughter slept on the couch the entire stay and my husband tried different beds and sides to sleep. The first floor bedrooms have no blinds or curtains. A walker was looking into the house one morning as we were getting changed for the lake. Bring extra sheets to hang at the windows. There are also no blinds in the dining room which is mostly windows and a large double door to the deck. All the houses are higher, so if the neighbor wants to look into the house at night, he can. Bring a night light to plug in! This house is totally black when all the lights are shut off to go to bed. If you need to get up during the night, you can't find your way around because it truly is completely dark! I thought it was great that the owners offer to save families money by not charging a cleaning fee. But after trying it, I will not rent from anyone that offers this type of savings again. Our house looked clean, but the stove (which we never used) was covered in grease. The dish towels in the kitchen were put back in the drawers very damp, and there were garlic-flavored ice cubes left in the freezer! You just have to hope that the people before you clean as well as you do. My family cleaned for two hours the night before, and another two hours the morning of checkout. All the carpets and towels were washed and dried. I just feel that the quality of this house will slip if not everyone cleans thoroughly. A professional would be held to higher standards or not get paid. We had very little communication with the owners other than very short emails. Met Mike quickly at the house, but we made him late for dinner. Sorry Mike! Our security fee was returned to us extremely fast, in one day, which was totally awesome!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, but-
Michael meets all rentals at check in and shows the house. In addition to meeting these people then, they sent us 12 emails, and we sent 14 replies. It is rare to have this much interaction. And since Michael shows the house, he is very conscientious about making sure it is clean.
Now, the rest-
Yes, we have new bathrooms and kitchen and AC. And our houses do not smell of smoke! We buy firmer mattresses since it is a rental home. No one has ever complained that the beds were noisy but we will check and correct if needed.
This house has 2 floors, is at the top of a hill, and only one house is even close to it. Every window on the 1st floor has shades. We are on a treed lot, too, so we decided not to put blinds on every window on the 2nd floor as an aesthetic decision, since people cannot see in unless you are right in front of the window. This is also a first for this complaint, so we may consider changing, although we like the open look. We have shades in the living room because the sun shines on the TV in daytime, but we left the dining room windows and the slider shadeless so people could appreciate the view and sunlight.
Saying all the houses are higher is just wrong--- our house was built to the Lake Harmony height limit, and we are at the top of a hill, so I do not know what the writer is trying to say.
They had only a few minor cleaning complaints including---damp, not dirty, kitchen towels in the drawers. Probably the prior renters washed them and did not have them fully dry when put away. When the new black flat top range is cleaned with the provided agent, it has a slippery coating to make it look shiny. Michael waited several hours before these people came and touched up a little while waiting, and he said the stove definitely was clean.
We give the option of cleaning yourself to save $100. Most people would be happy to have so few and such minor cleaning complaints. But if you do not clean as you go, it can take 4 hours to clean–it is a large house. We can get cleaners for you, but you will be charged $100, and doing it this way keeps the house in better condition. Cleaning people have only have 3 hrs between rentals, but most renters clean during their stay. Although this is a generally good review, I just wanted to address some of the comments and assure that we will follow up. These same renters asked to rent from us again a few days later, so we know they were not really dissatisfied.

Forgot to mention this

  • 5 of 5
I forgot to put this in my review---this house as 2 full size refrigerators! That was so handy--we kept all our sodas, beer and bags of ice in the refrigerator next to the pool table room, and that left us plenty of room in the upstairs kitchen refrigerator.
