Nestled in the Poconos this lakefront home is the perfect family get-a-way. This home has something for everyone. Whether you're relaxing in the large sunken hot tub enjoying the sunset, cruising in the canoe, fishing from the dock, or making s'mores with the kids by the lakeside firepit you will be assured to make family memories to last a lifetime. Included is complete lake access with dock, so bring your boat or jet ski to enjoy tubing and/or water skiing, or just fish and swim off the dock. A canoe, row boat, and various sized life jackets are provided for you. The home is cozy with a rustic stone fireplace, cathedral ceiling, open floorplan with exposed beams, hardwood floors and breathtaking lake views from almost every room in the house. Spend countless hours of fun and relaxation at this secluded home away from home and/or take advantage of the nearby attractions that the Poconos has to offer. 159 east island lane , lake ariel http://www.lakelubbers.com/lake-henry-1956
The home is located between Scranton and Lake Wallenpaupack and although very private, the home is within 10 minutes of grocery stores, gas stations, pharmacies, and fast food and small town restaurants.
Facing the lake, is a large deck which contains a sunken hot tub and a picnic table with benches and plenty of seating. The deck is accessible through 3 separate rooms via sliding glass doors. The large completely level yard contains hammock, tire swing, fire pit and a large picnic table with benches. There is ample outdoor seating to enjoy the lake and the magnificent sunsets. Also outdoors in the level back yard is a basketball hoop and plenty of parking. If raining, there is a small indoor basketball hoop and a ping pong table (inside the garage), as well as many board games, an old Super Nintendo and some left behind dvd's/vhs'.
In the summer, there is so much in the area to do! Fishing, hiking, biking, white water rafting, water skiing/tubing, boating, horse back riding, golfing, swimming, etc. There are many close by state parks/recreational parks with pools and/or lake beaches. There are museums and amazing waterfalls nearby. There are fun water parks and other parks for kids with go-karts, arcades, miniture golf, laser tag, etc. A nearby animal park gets you closer to the very active animals than you can get in a zoo.
In the winter, enjoy sledding behind the house, and ice skating/hockey on the lake. The house is centrally located between major ski resorts (closest is 20 minutes).
The provided dishwasher, microwave, gas grill, and washer/dryer on-site allow you to have more time available to spend doing whatever you like best.

This was our first Poconos vacation and this Lake House was a great place to spend it. We had 8 family members representing 3 generations and we all had a great time. The house was spacious, well laid out and well equipped ( a high chair and porta-crib would be a nice addition) and even had a welcome basket of goodies and supplies for us.
The outside has a flat lawn that gets lots of sun and only a few steps to the dock. A row boat and canoe are provided for your use, but there is no motor and no marina on the small lake to rent one.
Thanks to the owners it was a great vacation and we will return.
