About Lori Severino

We bought this house because we love the outdoors and all of the activities that go with it. We enjoy snowboarding in the winter and being out on the lake in the summer. It is one of only two motorboat lakes in the Poconos. It is an easy walk to the amenities at Split Rock Resort.

Lori Severino purchased this house in 2010

Why Lori Severino chose Lake Harmony

We fell in love with the layout of this house and the amount of space. The adults can me on the main level and the teenagers can have the downstairs living area and game room to themselves. Also, the property was built for Cool and the Gang back in the late 70s- they used to get away from the city and come to our home to write music!

What makes this house unique

Three levels with a bathroom on each level. Close to Jack Frost, Big Boulder, Lake Harmony, Boulder View Tavern, Shananigan's, white water rafting, Jim Thorpe, outlets, casino. There is something for everyone!

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We rented site-unseen and were very pleased with the rental. The owner, Lori and her husband were more than helpful with any questions that we asked. We also left behind our granddaughter's DVD & we asked Lori to mail it to us, if she found it. She promptly found it and it arrived safely back! It is a very roomy house, 3 levels so lots of room, we had 11 of us. The bedrooms are very homey and have comfy beds. The dining room has a large table & we used the extra table in the bedroom closet at the end of the dining room table to spread out our snacks, etc and for eating also. The kitchen was well stocked with all that you might need, pots, pans. etc. The hot tub got plenty hot and we really enjoyed that, it was cold in November but being outside on the high deck, it was fine, just outside the kitchen door. We loved the pool table, and air hockey, lots of fun! Lots of lounging around areas to enjoy. The deer were such fun to feed. We threw apple skin peels off the deck to them and they came right under us, they walked thru the yard often, could almost touch them. The house is in a beautiful neighborhood, all wooded and restful. We'd love to come back again. We'd highly recommend this rental, the price is great and the Owners were more than helpful !!

Good times.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. House is charming and large enough for our group (15). We really didn't use the downstairs game room much but did utilize the upstairs living room/dining room. The house is three levels with bedrooms on each level. The bedrooms are fairly spacious. We did have an issue with one of the pipes breaking in the middle of night due to sub-zero temperatures, but even though Lori was on vacation in Hawaii, she did her best to have an emergency plumber come fix it within the hour and even discounted our stay due to the issue. I would recommend this place, especially for the price!

This house was perfect the snow fall, the feeding of the deers,

Made our family ski weekend a memorable one we all felt at home. Lori was excellent in responding to my questions, promptly, I will definitely recommend and will return.

Thank you

I do not understand all of the 5 star reviews

  • 2 of 5

I assume the owner takes down anything less than a 5 star, and I assume she will take this one down as well. First, the place is not clean, there were dirty cobwebs in numerous corners. The bed was hard as a rock, the pillows were at least 20 years, and smelled it. The lower level bathroom was gross, there was black mold all around it. The wi-fi did not work, the gas fireplace did not work. The pool table's felt was torn in at least one spot. There were holes punched into some of the walls, I assume someone stayed with anger issues. The house needs a thorough cleaning. Linens are provided, but you must make your own beds, and wash and dry everything you use. There was one decent tv in the house, the one in the lower level was analog, who even has a tv like that anymore? I would assume an absent owner, who never visits the rental. I would be extremely embarrassed to rent this place out. The only positive thing I can say is that the kitchen was well stocked. It took nearly a month to get my security deposit back, which I had to ask for twice. When I finally got it, there was $10.00 taken out for a pet stain. Not sure how this is possible, the carpets were so stained, one more would not be noticed. No one, would consider wearing bare feet in this house. Overall a hugely disappointing experience. I had my adult kids travel from various points across two states, and this was what they got. My daughter asked me to rate the house, I gave it a 3 out of 10. We have rented numerous houses through VRBO, I have never written a negative review. Again, I just do not understand how anyone could give this place 5 stars, it makes no sense.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that this traveler did not enjoy her stay. We have had many families stay over the past 4 1/2 years that have very much enjoyed their time here. We do not remove any reviews as was suggested, and we won't remove this one. Our home was built for Cool and the Gang back in the late 70s so it is not a newer home. There are some dings and every year we continue to update. Since we have owned the home, we have replaced the hot tub, updated all of the appliances, replaced the kitchen floor and the upper level bathroom floor. We just recently updated all of the bedding and we have added air conditioning. We stay in our home on a regular basis and continue to work on updating it, so by no means are we absentee owners. Unfortunately, the wi-fi did not work while the guests were there. We went up the following weekend and had to replace the modem. We also just purchased two new TVs for the house. We do think of the families that will be visiting and provide clean towels and sheets for each bedroom. We do this as a convenience when many other rentals in our area do not. You either have to bring your own or rent them. We want our guests to have the option of not having to pack them, but we do ask that you wash them and put them away before you leave. We do provide the laundry detergent as well as many other products. We also have the carpets professionally cleaned every few months and if something happens in between that time and stains the carpets, we have the cleaning company come in and address it immediately. We do allow pets and we understand that there will be accidents on occasion, but we address the issue and know that many families enjoy the fact that they can bring their dogs on the family vacation. We have truly enjoyed opening our home to other families at a reasonable rate, as we know this is not a brand new home. We have enjoyed receiving pictures of people who have stayed and love reading our guest book of all of the activities the families have enjoyed. Every year we have many families that come back for another stay and love our home. We spend many holidays and ski weekends there ourselves and have enjoyed bringing our family there. We want everyone who stays to have great memories there.

Great for a group

  • 5 of 5

I was a little nervous because I found the house online and rented sight unseen. Luckily, it all worked out great! 4 families rented this wonderful home for a week and we were all so very pleased. Kids ranging from 3-12 spent most of the time hanging out on the lower level in their own space: they loved the the bunk bed room, playing air hockey and shooting pool. The adults spent most of their time on the deck or in the hot tub. We made a fire in the pit a few times and we looked forward to feeding the deer twice a day. There are two fireplaces but we didn't bother. I'm sure if it had been cooler weather we would have had them both going.

Although we drove to the lake with the kids, the walk to the lake is approximately 15 minutes long. The roads are great for bike riding. Split Rock water park is a mere 5 minute ride. The lake itself was wonderful! We brought rafts and inner tubes with us. The kids loved it. The shore is a little rocky near the edge but once you walk a few feet out it's fine.

We had a wonderful experience with this rental and the owners had a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us on the dining room table when we arrived. It was perfect for a group our size. We would definitely rent here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a Pocono vacation.

Blessings Lodge was a blessing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Blessings Lodge is a wonderful vacation home! This was our first time in Lake Harmony and we cannot wait to go back! Lori is a joy to work with and is very helpful with any questions you may have! The furninture and bedrooms were all comfortable. The kids had a blast in the downstairs bunk room & game room area - we did not see much of them! Tons of deer & even a bear sighting! So much to do , beach was awesome, boat rentals with rob & morgan - hanging at nicks! Highly recommend! Most relaxing vacation ever! Lori & Dan thank you for sharing your home with us!!
