Barbara and Menno Good purchased this house in 2013
It only takes us an hour and five minutes from the Lansdale interchange of the northeast extension of the turnpike. For those living near this interchange, friends and family can easily come for day visits during vacation.
Relaxing deck chairs watching geese, ducks, birds, deer, an array of rhododendron and mountain laurel around our home and throughout the community. Lake sparkles with ripples most of the time (unless covered with ice and snow in the winter). Many hummingbirds and other birds and wildlife. The open floor plan with lake views from the great room, kitchen, master bedroom is breathtaking. It's wonderful watching the fire in the fireplace (electric insert). The full basement is 1950 sq. ft. is a game room with skee ball, foosball, air hockey, pool, ping pong, regulation shuffleboard, and a number of other games.
This is such a beautiful house! We enjoyed the view of the frozen lake, and the deer each morning as they slipped and slid across it. Spent all of our time tubing/snowboarding around Blue Mountain--we had an amazing time! Thank you so much!!!
We recently rented this house for a family getaway and we were so impressed with this property! Since this is a lakeside property, the views are absolutely breathtaking! The pictures don't do this house justice. Also, this is the only house we've stayed in where anything you could possibly wish for is included. No need to pack anything kitchen related, as it really has everything! The owners even went out of the way to inquire if additional kitchen items like a George Foreman Grill, or Wok would be needed. The house itself is beautiful, so clean and neat and you can just tell how well taken care of it is. There is finishing right in your back yard, S'mores at night and the town of Jim Thorpe is just a short drive away, so there's plenty of things to keep you busy if you're not content with just relaxing! We can't wait to come again!
Thanks for such a lovely stay!
We absolutely loved this home. Everything we needed was available. The view of the lake was breathtaking. Waking up to the lake view every morning was my favorite part. The house was very clean and comfortable. The owners were so helpful. They gave us so much information of all the activities near by. We can't wait to go back!
We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend getaway. Barbara quickly responded to all our questions and requests. The house is very warm, comfortable and has everything you can think of. Lots of games for the kids, fully equipped kitchen, large dining table, comfortable beds. We enjoyed the time on a deck, having an amazing view of the lake, while making s'mores. Thank you Barbara for making us feel like we were home!
We arrived in the rain for the weekend. I felt so pleased, actually delighted, to find the house was very, very clean and cheery with lots of windows and comfortable chairs. We unloaded suitcases and food in the garage, so we did not even get wet. The kitchen was very well-equipped; the owners had thought of everything. There were pots and pans, sharp knives, spatulas, whisks, measuring cups, etc. The dining table seats eight comfortably. We had our dinner, went to sleep in comfortable beds, got up the next morning to sunlight sparkling on the lake which is just a few steps off the spacious deck. We were so happy to be there together. We look forward to coming back with six friends. With a large game room downstairs, there is plenty for all to do.
We were delighted with this charming house and the surrounding area, especially the lake. The house was clean and provides a family with all the necessities needed for a wonderful vacation, even if the weather does not cooperate. It is spacious and comfortable in every way. The kitchen is especially large and easy for food preparation. The dining area is perfect for several or a larger group. The owners are great to work with, since their desire is for you to have a marvelous vacation. Any family can have a change of pace with the restful environment this home provides.
Like many others have written, the pictures of this property do not do it justice ! Not only that but the community that this property is in is very beautiful and safe. Lastly, the owners were friendly and great communicators. It was a pleasure utilizing this property and I really look forward to doing it again.
Country Junction is the world's largest general store Route 209--an amazing experience. Train ride and white water rafting in Jim Thorpe. Kayaking and boating on El-Do Lake.
