Albrightsville Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-10)

Beautiful new chalet on wooded lot. You can cozy up on the couch with a fire and watch nature come to your front yard, or you can sit in the hot tub and enjoy all the deer and wild turkeys. Located in the woods of Towamensing Trails is our new three bedroom, two full bath home. Available for weekend/weekly rentals. Nicely furnished white glove clean with gas stone fire place, cathedral ceilings, windows from top to bottom, one 36 inch TV in the living room and one 27 inch TV in the upstairs bedroom, plus a 20 inch TV in the pool room. Pool room has seven foot slate table, for those who love to shoot pool. There is a large deck in the front with gas grill and patio table for outdoor dining. And in the back of the house, a private deck awaits you with six-person Hot Tub. Watch the snow melt as it hits the water while you are soothing you aching muscles in the cold mountain air.

Here Is What Some Of Our Guests Had To Say: Comment 1::

For the 2nd year, you've impressed us! After years of dealing with realtors and strangers, we've finally found someone we love renting from!! Your homes are beautiful on the outside and immaculate on the inside! You are prompt, personable and accommodating and we will hopefully be renting from you for many years to come. Your Hugo Chalet was gorgeous last year and this home was as well. We can't decide which one we like better. Looking forward to staying at one of your new homes next year. Thanks again and we'll definitely be talking soon.

Comment 2: Wow, what a wonderful place to get away from it all, yet still have the comforts of home. While researching places to stay in the Pocono’s, two things really attracted us to this house. The first was that it appeared to be new and clean. The second was that pets were allowed. This really meant a lot as we could have a true family vacation and not leave the dogs in the kennel for a week. When we arrived, the house sure did not disappoint. The first thing we noticed when we walked into the house was how nice and new everything was. It really was 'white glove' clean. The layout was open and airy. The furniture was beautiful and comfortable and not the cheep stuff you sometimes find in some of the other rentals. The Jacuzzi was a definite highlight as you could clearly see thousands of stars while soaking in it at night.

In the daytime, there was plenty to do. On our morning walks, we always saw deer and wild turkeys. In the afternoons we explored Jim Thorpe or one of the many or one of the many nearby hiking trails.

We cannot stress enough what a pleasure it was renting from Lee. He was a professional and gracious host and always quick to respond. When we told him we would be bringing our baby, he even offered to provide us with a pack and play. In short, we would recommend this house for anyone staying in this area.

About Jeff Herling

My guest comments say it all. I truly take pride in my rental home. My goal is to exceed my guests expections. I am available to guide you through your stay from the moment you send you vrbo inquiry through the day you check-out. I am reachable 24 hours a day. I started with one home in 2005 that I could use with as my vacation home, and also rent out. I have enjoyed renting to my guests so much, that I built 2 additional homes all in the same community. I have 2 property managers that live in the same development, and they too are always available for my guests. I also have been very sucessful in offering customized rentals. For that special occasion such as an anniversary, honey moon, birthday, etc, I offer many items that can be provided to surprise a loved one upon there arrival. Special bottle of wine, chocolate, flowers, and even a candle lit dinner for two, it can all be arranged.

Jeff Herling purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Jeff Herling chose Albrightsville

This vacation home is located in Towamensing Trails. I bought my vacation rental in this area due to the endless amount of year round activities that are available. It is truly a four season rental community. For Winter there are the ski slopes 5 miles away, snow tubing/boarding, as well as 2 casinos, and an indoor water park open to the public 5 miles away. The thought of bundling up and skiing when it is close to zero degrees, and then surfing at the climate controlled indoor water park in a bathing suit all in the same day was most inticing. The spring brings tons of festivals as well as well as a great time to site see. For the summer, you have a 195 acre lake, a beatutiful beach, swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, game room/playground, and restaurant/club all in the development. For fall, there is some of the most beautiful foliage that I have ever seen.

Mini vacation

  • 5 of 5

I am very pleased with my stay at this house. I rent houses a few times a year and this by far has made my stay the best. Great location, spotless house, amenities, jacuzzi, pool table, grill, tvs everywhere, and a cozy fire place to top it off with an awesome helpful owner. He assisted me with everything and made my stay as easy as possible. Definitely recommend and will only stay here from now on.

Ps the pictures dont even do justice. Beautiful!!

What an awesome trip my family and I had to Jeffs chalet!!!!!, When I first walked in I was impressed immediately with how clean the place was, so ignore the negative review about it being dirty as it was totally unfounded. Right on the island when you first walked in were the amenity and parking passes where as in past places I stayed we had to sign in with security which could be on ordeal, this was soooooooo simple!!!!!! The house was perfect with the grill being fueled, the hot tub being hot, and the house being quite impressive. Plenty of pots and pans to use as well with bedding being clean and smelling nice as well. Jeff was available to answer all the questions we had, and a pleasure to deal with. The community was quite nice and offered hours of fun at the lake and pool. The crickets chirping at night was so relaxing to listen to. The fireplace and hot tub were great for romantic venues once the kids were down, heck even my dog had a great time!!!!! I read about how one person had to take their garbage home as a complaint. That person was obviously illiterate as Jeff provided info on where to find the compactor and on the fridge as well as by the compactor there were hours of operation which gave ample time to complete the task, heck my son even had added fun of being able to throw in the what can I say!!!!! I would definitely stay there again and deal with Jeff or Lee again for future trips to the Poconos.....if you are thinking of renting this chalet its time to stop and do it, I promise you will not be at all disappointed. Just to close the property manager/repairman was also a pleasure to deal with as we met him the fist day, and he made us know of how to contact him if needed which we did not need. He was quite friendly and professional!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you soooo much for the great review!!! Jeff said that you were a pleasure to deal with and extremely professional as well. I am glad you and your family had such a great time at our chalet. I am glad you also got to meet Steve our property manager. He is exceptional and i son call 24/7 for all my rental homes. Also thank you so much for dispelling everything that was listed in the false and negative review that a prior renter left for us solely because we would not bargain with them on our price. You and your family are welcome back anytime!!! Thank you, Lee!!!!!!!

Great Place to stay. Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations we have had. This chalet is great. Loved the hot tub, pool table, and private setting. Extremely clean, and immaculate. we went to the two casinos nearby, the waterpark, and spent a day at the pool and the lake. owners were so accommodating and let us check in early and leave late for no extra charge. We will definitely be coming back!

Very disappointing - Worst rental experience

  • 1 of 5

While I respect the positive reviews of previous renters, please note that this is a review of MY experience, so please respect that. This is in no way a reflection of the character of the owner(s) of the house – who helped as much as they could.

Condition of the House


Carpets were dirty (we had to wear socks everywhere), dirty dishes in sink and dishwasher, kitchen appliances and counters were dirty, baking tray with old dried up food was found in the oven. We ended up having to buy cleaning supplies and clean as much as possible on the first day. My impression was that the house was not cleaned since the last renters.


Spiders and some other bugs in nearly every room – not a pleasant experience with women and children with us!


There were very minimal cooking supplies there, and the ones that were there were filthy. We ended up having to buy them ourselves at the local store.


No propane in tank, grill was dirty


TV remote controls and living room fan didn’t work.

The washer/dryer closet was locked – while I understand that usage was not agreed upon prior to arrival, we’ve always been able to use them in other Poconos rentals (I should have inquired about it before agreeing to rent. Definitely a must-need when traveling with kids).


While the listing is accurate in stating that 8 people that can sleep there, it’s not realistic for 8 people to spend time socializing. For example, the living room only seats 4 people, and the patio seats 4-6.

Unfortunately, this was our worst experience in renting a vacation home in the Poconos, which we do about 1-2 times per year, and it has obviously put a bad taste in my mouth to ever rent this house again. I hope things improve, as this review is for the benefit of future renters and efforts of the owners to address my concerns and is in no way to “bash” anyone. Like I said, the owner was very responsive and tried to help as much as he could.

Owner's Response: Have been renting my homes for almost ten years. Have had all great reviews, and I have hundreds of top references. Should have known better with this renter. Looking for a bargain, Endless unrealistic emails PRIOR to arrival. Asking for more supplies than a home goods department store would carry. Have record of his two page list for anyones review. Damage to one of my bathrooms which I did not charge them for, and then this review. Claims he rents all the time in the poconos but strangely no reviews except for this one. This is either a joke or something doesn't add up here!

Enjoyable Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed a relaxing weekend at the Chalet and I highly recommend this place. The location is scenic and quiet and even though there were other houses in the development the house felt very private. I would recommend bringing along food, beverages and anything you may need since it's about a 10 mile drive to the supermarket, Wawa, state store and restaurants.

The owners were very easy to work with and answered all of my questions in a timely manner.
