The Swiss Orchard House at Camelback

CamelBack Ski slopes are OPEN !!!!

7 minutes to the Camelback ski lifts or the Outlet Mall - It's the most convenient vacation house in the area. See the map on this page!

Notes to all our guests - we ONLY accept payment through the HomeAway payment system. NEVER accept any offer from someone who requests you pay some other way.

We also do not start or end rentals on Saturdays. Starting or ending on a Saturday requires that we charge you the full 2-night weekend rate for the night. Weekly rates may start any day except Saturday.

Check out our other house too - Swiss House Lodge: HomeAway Listing 370988

Occupancy / Age Limits:

** We are family friendly!

** Maximum 8 adults or 10 total if at least 2 people are under 16 years old

** We DO rent to groups under 25 years old, but limit group size to 6 people and require extra insurance.

One important note - Swiss House Lodge is NOT a party house.

NOT A PARTY HOUSE! NOT A PARTY HOUSE! NOT A PARTY HOUSE!

If you're looking for a place to party 'till you puke - this isn't it. We know that every so often one person in a group will go a bit overboard, but if your intent is to bring people who will binge drink, please find another house. Payment for damage to the house is the renter's responsibility. Smoking or drug use in the house may also result in forfeiture of your complete damage deposit.

My wife and I personally manage the house, from taking reservations to cleaning the house ourselves between each guest. As you can probably tell from the reviews, we want you to feel warm and comfortable when you visit, as if you were staying at the home of a close friend. And we expect our guests to treat the house as if they were renting from a friend too.

Why is it called Swiss House?: We named our vacation homes after a lodge we stayed in many years ago: The Swiss House. It was warm and inviting, and had a spirit of relaxation and peace. We aim to provide that same feeling of peace and tranquility in our vacation homes.

Lisa and Tom moved to the Poconos in 2010 after living in the NY/NJ area for many years - we understand the needs of local metro vacationers.

Our own house is 2 miles from Swiss House so we are close enough to take care of any problems that might arise during your stay.

Tom Campbell purchased this house in 2011

Location, location, location. It is about as close as you can get to Camelback mountain without having to deal with all the hassle of the on-mountain developments. The property is large with a big garage, and has room for us to expand.

JUST LIKE HOME

  • 4 of 5
The house was very warm & cozy which made us feel just at home. In an email Tom mentioned that they would turn on the heat before we arrived which I believe he did because I saw footsteps in the snow and the house was warm & toasty.

We loved that the kitchen was fully stocked as well as the bathrooms. My one friend & I really liked the different mugs from different places like Texas. The quotes nicely decorated all over the house was a nice touch! I also liked not having to carry a key around since the door unlocks with a code.

We didn't spend much time in the basement but it was a nice area for bigger groups or people with kids so that they can do separate things.

The first few minutes & night there was a bit scary because the heat made clinking sounds in the wall but we got use to that the next day. And we don't think the master bedroom's bed is actually king sized.

We really enjoyed our stay here & hope to come back again!

Thank you, Tom & Lisa!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Jo - we're glad you guys had a great time at our place.

We especially like that you got a kick out of the mugs - Lisa and I have traveled extensively in our professional careers, collecting mugs as we worked in different cities. Now we like to share those mugs (and memories) with our guests.

You're right about the bed in the Master Bedroom - it is now a queen sized bed. The king size bed was getting a bit soft, so we changed it out for a new queen size sleigh bed which looks nicer in the room. We're sorry for any inconvenience the smaller bed (or hot water heating system noise) may have made. We've updated our HomeAway listing to show that it is now a queen size bed and thank you for letting us know that we had overlooked making the update.

Once again, we're glad you guys had a great time, and hope you'll come back to our place again some time!

FABULOUS TIME

  • 5 of 5
Great location. Wonderful and clean home. Fabulous time. Owners include everything that you could possibly want including video games and movies. Kitchen has everything needed to have meals "at home". Game room is a great addition. If you are planning a trip to the area, the Swiss Orchard House will be your perfect choice.

SIMPLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Well, to start off i have to admit the pictures of the house do not do it justice. i was a little apprehensive about booking this house because of all the rules, after staying here the rules were a great help. i went with a group of 6, we all felt like this was our home. the beds were so comfortable and the overall decor of the home was so welcoming with all the sayings on the walls, it was super clean & modern. Game room was awesome & the backyard was the perfect size. Tom & Lisa were so helpful with any questions i had & the jacuezzi was the perfect touch. the house is in a great location 10 minutes from the gun rate and 30 minutes from bushkill falls. we are already planning a trip back, just love it!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5
We were there for no more than an hour before my 10 year old daughter asked if we could stay there again next year. This property is within a short drive (or walk in some instances) to all of the great family friendly activities in the Tannersville area. The prime location is only half of it, the owners have set up an ideal rental property--immaculate and well-appointed. The whole family enjpyed the hot tub, foosball and air hockey. Most importantly, it was such a pleasure doing business with Tom and Lisa.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us last week! We're very happy to hear that you were able to feel the care and special attention that Lisa and I put in to making our house a welcoming place for guests. We particularly appreciate that you left the house in such nice condition, making it easy for us to prepare it for the next guests. Summer is a busy season for us, and good guests like your family are very appreciated - you make it possible for us to offer our house to more families so they too can enjoy the fun and sun of the Poconos!
