Blakeslee House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8

Vacation in a beautiful mountain chalet in the Poconos. Enjoy the open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, and immaculate condition of this modern country home located in the secure private lake community of Briar Crest Woods.

We are located 5 minutes from Lake Harmony/Big Boulder, H2O0000h water park, and 20 minutes from Camelback/Camelbeach and the Crossings Outlets. Hickory Run State Park is only 10 minutes away. We are approximately 4 miles from Route 80.

Our cozy mountain community is surrounded by protected state gamelands. If you are a wildlife enthusiast, make sure you bring your binoculars. Lake Shangrila, just one block away, offers a sandy beach with floating docks and life guards, BBQ area, children's park, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, and a fishing dock. In addition, the community center offers various activities throughout the year including movies and a community library.

Our home is minutes from hiking, golfing, NASCAR raceway, ski areas, and great outlet shopping. The property is located close to I-80, 10 minutes to Hickory Run State Park, Lake Harmony, Split Rock Resort, Pocono Raceway, historic Jim Thorpe, Big Boulder, and H2O0000Hwater slide area at Jack Frost. Camelback/Camel Beach and the Crossings outlets are all close by. Four different golf courses are only 10 minutes away. We are just 25 minutes from the Mount Airy Casino.

The home has three bedrooms (two queen, one full, one twin) with an additional futon in the loft area. The fully supplied kitchen provides a coffee maker, microwave, and dishwasher. The living room with its beautiful stone fireplace is the perfect place to unwind after a long, fun day of activities and shopping in the Poconos. You can also check your e-mail and search for more Pocono activities on your laptop using the wireless hi-speed Internet connection.

Our 3-bedroom modern chalet will comfortably accommodate a family of seven, and with a futon, sleeps eight or nine. But it’s also perfect for three couples traveling together, or as a romantic and extra-spacious getaway for two.

For your outdoor pleasure, the two large wooden decks in the front and back of the house provide seating for dining and relaxing. Our kitchen adjoins the dining area, which opens onto the deck through sliding glass doors. The wooded lot provides quiet surroundings for relaxation. Centrally located, shopping isn't far away with antique shops and The Crossings Outlets.

The Pocono Mountains are located in the northeastern corner of Pennsylvania, USA. We are only 90 minutes from New York City and less than 2 hours from Philadelphia...and easily reached via Interstate highways 80, 81, 84, and Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

GREAT LOCATION--minutes from skiing (Jack Frost & Big Boulder),Lake Harmony, the H2Ooooh Water Park, racing, hunting, shopping, golfing, and hiking.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
I spent my labor day weekend with my friends here. The house is cozy and clean so I felt like I was at home. There is a big lake where you can swim with basketball court and volleyball court just about 2 blocks from the house. Also famous paintball place, Skirmish was just 10 minutes from the house. BBQ grill was a old charcoal grill, but it got the jobs done. The owner Geri is kind and helpful throughout the renting process. I will definitely go back to this place for my next vacation.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a weekend there. I felt myself separate from the rest of the world, 'cause this place was so quiet, calm and beautiful. Around a house you could see deers and turkeys. The house is cozy, tidy and homelike. Very soft couches and fireplace make your environment really restful and serene. Geri ( owner of the house) left a lot of prospects of all attractions, activities, restaurants and stores, so you would have a chance to visit them. We spent approximately the hole day in the "Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark". There is a spectacular lake in a five-minute walk with children's playground. So, if you want to have a great time- try this place, personally I believe, you won't be disappointed.

This is our first time renting a home. Thanks to Geri everything went smoothly from start to finish! We had a wonderful wonderful time! The house is beautiful, well stocked with dishes etc, and conveniently located to everything. The deer and turkeys came by often. It was so peaceful. We had a wonderful vacation!

Beautiful Peaceful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This home had all it promised and more. Conveniently located to all the area attractions. We stayed during the June Nascar Events at Pocono's Speedway.

Home is warm, inviting and charming. With the deer in the yard to greet us and the wonderful fireplace to snug up near in the evenings, what more could we ask for.

The Owner was very easy to work with, great communication and very helpful

We would definitely stay here again

thanks

Great Home - with great location and accommodating Owner!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the home - while attending the June Nascar events at Pocono's Speeday.

Conveniently located, easy to reach from many directions. Home was clean and the scenic view of nature all around us was relaxing and inviting.

I found the Owner to be more than willing to accommodate our needs and request. Easy to communicate with, proper with communication - both from and to.

Highly recommend!

Good house

  • 3 of 5
We spent a weekend in May in the house and found it clean and nice. The only thing that is completely unacceptable are the pots and pans provided in the kitchen. They are in horrible condition and can not be used. I had to buy my own in a supermarket. The community is basic, no pool, small beach. It was ok for spending a weekend there.

Owner's Response: We take pride in keeping the house clean for our guests. However, I do agree that the pots and pans definitely need updating. We will take care of it right away. Thank you for your feedback.
