POCONO SWISS LODGE - 8 MINUTES TO CAMELBACK SKI LIFTS!

Tannersville House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps Up To 10, Wooded One Acre Lot

The Lodge at Camelback (Also known as the Swiss Lodge)

The Pocono Swiss Lodge is a stunning contemporary vacation home nestled in the woods for privacy and romance yet less than 10 minutes from the CamelBeach or Tannersville Crossroads Outlet mall. The Lodge is a single family house (not a townhouse) on just under an acre of very private wooded land. Right next to the hot tub is a private covered pavilion that is great for picnics.

The house has a huge great room surrounding a massive stone fireplace.. It includes 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen and dining room, living room, and 2 full bathrooms. In the winter, you can look out over the lights on the Camelback slopes from the deck or the dining room windows. Cable TV and free WiFi is included.

The Swiss House Lodge is Green! Our home is heated with 100% wind produced energy (Green Mountain Energy).

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.

If the Lodge is unavailable - check out our other house (The Orchard) at HomeAway listing #370912

Occupancy / Age Limits:

** Maximum 8 adults (16 or older)

** Maximum 10 people total (at least 2 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.

Extra fees based on specific nights:

Friday Check-Out + $100

Saturday Check-In or Check-Out + $250

Occupancy / Age Limits:

** Maximum 8 adults (16 or older)

** Maximum 10 people total (at least 2 are under 16 years old)

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

One important note – the Swiss Chalet is 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.

Lisa and I personally manage the house, from taking reservations to checking the house 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 that same way.

Please keep in mind that the Lodge is a vacation home - it is not a 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous' house. People wear their shoes inside and mark up the carpet. The pots and pans get scratches. There are marks on some of the walls. The house is in the woods, so you may see an ant or spider once in a while.

Our primary concern is that we deliver a house that is clean, comfortable, and gives you and your family joy as your use it for your vacation. We replace things as needed, but we do not try to make the house look brand new between each guest. Please set your expectations accordingly.

Why is it called Swiss House Lodge?: We named our vacation homes after a lodge we stayed in many years ago - 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.

Perfect place for a relaxing girls' getaway!

Perfect place for a relaxing girls' getaway!
  • 5 of 5
Our primary goal was to have a relaxing girls getaway for a few days and The Swiss Lodge truly met that goal. The house is located in a wooded area which provides privacy to read, take walks and enjoy the surroundings, yet the "lodge" itself is close enough to shopping/restaurants so that we could explore the area, and return early enough to enjoy all the amenities of the home. The hot tub, fireplace and outdoor grill were superb. There were initial issues with the workings of the hot tub and TV because the manuals were out of date. Calls to the owner were returned and all was fixed in a short time. As promised, the owners did provide plenty of towels and the beds were truly comfortable. We would suggest that the owners add slip proof pads in the upstairs tub for safety and maybe provide additional paper/plastic items for the kitchen. We enjoyed our time immensely at the property and we would recommend The Swiss Lodge for those looking for a quiet relaxing getaway with friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review of our lodge!
We're glad we were able to help you guys figure out the universal remote control for the TV - we have to replace them regularly as other guests often lose them - so it's hard to document which buttons to press for channels, inputs, etc.
We also updated the user manual for the new controls on the hot tub since we put in a new motor and heater over the winter - thanks for pointing out that they needed updating.
And finally, we have placed a tub mat in the corner of the bathroom for future guests who may want to put something in the tub in case it gets slippery from shampoo. We do not like to put the sticky appliques on the tub itself since some people like to take baths and they can be irritating - but we now offer the mat for people who find it slippery.
Once again, thank you for the nice review, and we're glad you had a great time!!!

First and foremost, thank you Tom and Lisa! The Swiss Lodge House was more than I can ask for. I went with 6 adults and we enjoy every aspect of the house, indoor and outdoor. It was just the right size for us 6. Comfy, cozy, and clean is how I would describe the house. The best part was that the house was really in the middle of everything, casino, camelback mountain, horseback riding, etc. Tom was really nice! He had stop by to say hello and made sure everything was ok for us! I would highly recommend this beautiful home and look forward into coming back again, myself!!! :)

Wonderful New Years stay at the Swiss Lodge

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Swiss House. It honesly felt like a home away from home, but had the class and cleanliness of a hotel. The bedrooms were large with comfortable beds and while the weather was chilly outside we were kept pleasantly warm with the ducted heating and fireplace. Tom and Lisa have a wonderful house here and we were lucky enough to enjoy it. Thank you to Tom and Lisa for a most enjoyable stay. We hope to visit you again soon. :)

Owner's Response: We're very glad you enjoyed our home in the Poconos!

Lisa and I are always happy to hear that people appreciate the fireplace and everything else at the Lodge. It is important to us that each and every guest have a nice, clean place to relax when they come home from skiing, and are glad that you noticed the care we put into it.

We hope you'll be back some time!

Great house in an a quiet, private setting

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this house was our first time using HomeAway, so we weren't sure exactly what to expect. I'm happy to say we were immediately put at ease by the owners Tom & Lisa, who answered all our questions before we booked, during the booking process, and afterwards as well.
As for the house, it's located on a private lot, a good distance away from the neighbors' houses. Also, the main living area on the 1st floor is wide open with a beautiful fireplace and comfy couches. We also utilized the kitchen, which was more than adequate, to cook several meals during our stay. The bedrooms (3) had huge, comfortable beds, with one bedroom having a view of the slopes at Camelback.
The property description was definitely accurate and we plan on coming back next season. Thank you guys for a wonderful stay.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay in one of Tom and Lisa's home (first at the Swiss Lodge.)

First of all, doing business with Tom is a pleasure. Tom simply is always available to answer questions, provide plenty information about the area, and makes sure your trip will be enjoyable and stress free. Furthermore, the cleanliness of Tom and Lisa's home meets a standard of perfection. With that said, we are comfortable staying in any house they have to offer; it is sure to be a clean, safe and enjoyable vacation.

Likewise, the Swiss Lodge is a beautiful home privately set in the woods. This house, filled with character, has plenty for all to do. My group enjoyed the air hockey table, board games and cards, and fireplace and large television. Everything on the one floor allows everyone to have space, yet share time together. Outside we took advantage of the jacuzzi and grill. Every appliance works well and, as said before, is well cared for and clean! Finally, seeing Camelback all lit up at night is just an added bonus. (Oh yea, if you care to leave this gem of a house, skiing is right around the corner!)

My family and friends are all thrilled to have come across this home. It is nice to know that there is a house we can find to get away from it all for a few days. The fact that the owners are such a pleasure to work with is a bonus that is (unfortunately) not always a guarantee. Thanks again to Tom and Lisa for an unbelievable job from start to finish!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ken - it was great to have you back as a repeat guest!

We're glad you got to try the Lodge this time. We found this house in early 2012 and fell in love with its layout and proximity to Camelback. We spent the spring and summer getting it ready for guests. As you know from our Swiss Orchard house, Lisa and I really like to put ourselves into the houses we offer to vacation guests. This house forced me (Tom) to get over my fear of heights as we painted the whole exterior by hand, cut down the trees for the parking area, and turned the old wood storage area into a covered pavilion for picnicking. Lisa's touches are all through the house, from all the repainting of the trimwork (the wood was SOOOO thirsty) to the pictures and sayings on the walls. We hope that you felt the love that we put into the house as we prepared it for guests!

We also appreciate that you noticed that we're sticklers for making the house nice and clean for guests. Lisa really likes making the beds up so that people feel special when they're ready to call it a night, while I (Tom) make sure that the kitchen, bathrooms, and the rest of the house are completely cleaned after each set of guests leave. Truth be known - our vacation houses are far cleaner and more tidy than our own!

Once again, thank you for being a returning guest. We're glad our houses make you family feel at home!
