Our Swiss Chalet style home on Lake Henry in the Poconos is a very quiet, lakefront home for your family to enjoy. There is a full kitchen for your use. The dining room and living room look out over the lake facing the sun sets. The lake water temperature is usually in the 80s from mid June through mid September. The house is professionally cleaned and maintained for your comfort and safety. There is a huge deck off the front of the house with stairs to the thick lush lawn. Just walk across the lawn to the lake, the fire pit and and excellent Bass fishing. Take the Paddle Boat or kayaks for a long cruise or use them to fish. At night you can see the Big Dipper directly over the lake or watch the full moon overhead as you roast marshmallows.
For you convenience there is wireless hookup and cable TV.
Come and enjoy our special part of the PA Poconos.
Relax on the lakefront deck or very large dock and enjoy the breathtaking view of this quiet 400 acre natural/man made lake. Perhaps during your visit you will be able to spot some of the many local birds and animals that are near the lake, such as the many species of ducks, Canada geese, loons, green herons, great blue herons, eagles, swans, and ospreys. Animals that can be found around the lake are deer, beaver, river otter, fox, mink, and occasionally a black bear, along with the more common song birds and small animals. Feel free to try your angling skills at Lake Henry. Hopefully you will be able to catch sunfish, catfish, perch, chain pickerel, bass and crappie.
A peaceful swim in the warm water lake or a very slow and quiet tour of the lake in the canoe, paddle boat or the row boat is a must during your stay at Lake Henry.
Enjoy the Peace: Lake Henry is a beautiful and peaceful place. We want you to enjoy your stay and savor the peace. However, we ask that while you enjoy the peace and quiet, you respect it and our neighbors as well. You will be amazed that you can hear your heart beat, the sounds of the birds chirping, woodpeckers hammering away in a tree and the croaking of the frogs. You may see a bald eagle fly by, or see fish jump, or a deer or turkey walk across the lawn. Our lake is nature at its best and a most peaceful place to relax.
2nd time at lake Henry, and first time in this house.
We loved it. The house is in great condition and had everything we needed. My wife and I stayed with our 2 young girls, having their bedrooms upstairs is a pretty nice bonus for parents.
Bette and Merle were super nice.
Thank You, and hope to see you next year
We loved everything about our stay. The location, the house, the boats and every detail that Betty and Merle thought of. They are both delightful and helpful, there to talk but give you space for sure. We WILL be back.
This has become our yearly fall getaway destination vacation. We love to come to relax and enjoy the lake view and fall foliage. If we are not on the deck admiring the view, kayaking or running the scenic roads around the lake we are out sightseeing, buying apples or finding a new trail to walk. The home is immaculate, comfortable and all the amenities you could need are supplied. Betty and Merle welcome you and are warm and friendly. If you need anything, you just have to ask. This is a charming home.
Great place for 55+ as well as families with children. My wife and I (seniors) enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat. Also swam in the unexpectedly warm lake water- 80 degrees in September. Unusual. Betty plants flowers everywhere which creates a park-like setting. Don't forget to ask Merle to show you his stained glass creations. He is an amazing artist with glass..Betty is an expert quilter. We will be back again next year.
We had a wonderful time! The house is delightful and very well kept. Betty and Merle are so friendly and warm I almost forgot we were renting the place! The lake is beautiful, we miss it already!
This was one of the best, most relaxing trips I have taken in a very long time. The chalet was lovely, the lake was beautiful and the time there was just too short. Betty and Merle were as lovely as the surroundings - simply could not have asked for better! We will be back!
