Built in 2005, this house was never used, until purchased by new owner in June, 2012. Not your standard 1970's Pocono rental! New/newer furnishings, comfortable beds, and new 12 x 14 dock. 1 2-person kayak, pedal boat, 4 fishing rods, and 3 bikes are provided. High chair, booster seat, Graco Pack & Play, babygate, XL Dog Cage, and handicapped toilet/bath chair also provided (main floor master bedroom). This house has large rooms and can sleep up to 16 people (maximum capacity). Great for 2 families.
We're a blended family from Maple Glen, PA (suburban Philadelphia) with 6 kids, ranging in age from 10 to 23. We love both the beach and the more family-oriented mountains.
We did extensive research into the various Pocono communities. We wanted lake front, within a reasonable drive from Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York, where we have family; a good/established community with a lot of amenities at a good value; and at least 1 heated swimming pool within walking distance was a MUST. There also needed to be a variety of attractions both within and near the community that would be of interest to kids of all ages.
No 'old house smell' in our home! We're trying to create a contemporary but warm and comfortable decor, that's family-friendly, and that takes full advantage of the lake year round. Although our home is pet-friendly to well-behaved pets (we have 2 doodles) and owners, absolutely no smoking is allowed. To maintain the new carpets and furnishings and ensure that the house remains at its best, we prefer renting to families and will not rent to groups of college-aged individuals.
Equal distance between Camelback and Jack Frost Ski areas. Close to Pocono Raceway, Mt. Airy Casino, Hickory Run State Park, and Lake Harmony/Split Rock Resort. Within 1/2 hour of Lehigh Gorge (white water rafting, etc.), zip line adventures, outlet shopping, etc.
