BEAUTIFUL MODERN LAKEFRONT HOME, PET AND CHILD FRIENDLY!

Locust Lake House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8-10, Lakefront!

Welcome to our lake house in the mountains! This is our vacation home, so we treat it with care. We like to believe that because of that, you’ll find it nicer than the rental-only houses available.

Our house is directly on the public beach of the largest lake in our community. You literally walk out of the house, through a short path through the trees, and you’re on the beach! Besides the gorgeous lake, the beach has a playground, picnic tables, and bbqs for everyone’s use.

The 2000 square foot house is clean and modern with a nautical décor, and features brand new hardwood flooring. There are four bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and two full bathrooms (one with a shower/tub, one with a shower stall). One bedroom has a small sofabed so if you’re travelling with children, they can stay with you in your room. We have a large, sunny great room with an 8-person dining table and living room with a wood-burning fireplace and ipod dock. The kitchen is fully equipped with range, microwave, pots & pans, dishes, hand mixer, toaster oven, coffee maker, utensils and more. Sliding doors from the living room lead onto a large uncovered deck overlooking the lake. Doors from the dining room and kitchen lead onto the screened-in porch, with another 8-person dining table. Eat in the clear mountain air! There is a propane bbq on the deck as well for those summer cook-outs!

The top floor has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Downstairs, you’ll find the 4th bedroom (with the sofabed), and the 2nd bathroom. In addition, there is the large family room. Here you’ll find the 42” flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and Netflix. Also a wood-burning stove, an air-hockey table, a game table, and numerous books, board games, and family appropriate DVDs for your enjoyment. We also have high speed wi-fi throughout the house. Sliding doors from the family room lead to the beach, and your own private fire pit! Mmmm . . . s ‘mores . . .

We are family and dog friendly. We have provided a high chair, a pack and play (with an extra thick special mattress, not those thin cardboard ones that usually come with them!), a gate for the stairs, and baby/toddler books and toys. Feel free to bring your furry family members along too! Doggie bed and bowls available. But please note that dogs are not allowed on the beach.

The house is located in the gorgeous community of Locust Lake Village. This community includes 5 lakes, 3 with white sandy beaches and lifeguards throughout the summer. There is a snack bar, playground, and picnic area at each lake. The community has activities and classes planned throughout the year. Other recreational facilities in the community include: A baseball field, a basketball court, shuffleboard, bocci ball, and even its own skiing hill and ice skating. Also, Locust Lake was rated 'Best in the Country Trout Fishing' by Pennsylvania Game and Fish. The Village is surrounded by 21,000 acres of Brady’s State Gamelands—you’re truly in the woods!

Locust Lake is a perfect location to all activities and attractions, all year round. This property is conveniently 10 minutes away from Jack Frost/Big Boulder Ski Resort, which has tubing, downhill skiing, and snowboarding. Split Rock, a 10 minute drive, is a resort with the H2ooooooh water park, mini golf, a movie theater, and more. Camelback Ski/Water Park, horseback riding, paintball, whitewater rafting, golfing are all within 10-20 minutes away, in the Lehigh River Gorge and Hickory Run State Park. The 100-store Tannersville Outlets are also only a 20 minute drive. NASCAR Pocono Raceway and the Mount Airy Casino are also only minutes away! For a longer day out, head over to the historic and quaint town of Jim Thorpe, or even to Philadelphia, Sesame Place, or Hershey Park.

This village is adjacent to a main highway, Route 940, only 5 miles from Routes 80 and 280. It is close to a shopping center containing an excellent grocery store. There are numerous dine-in and take-out restaurants nearby. A short drive down Rt 940 takes you to a shopping center which includes a Wal-Mart and a Lowe’s.

Come enjoy our home and everything the Poconos has to offer.

Great Stay with Young Child

We stayed in the house for a weekend trip with another couple, our young daughter and our dog. The house was perfect. Great location for a home base as we headed out to Bushkill Falls and the Outlets as well as general Poconos sightseeing. The house is excellent, and the lakefront location is wonderful. We plan on returning in the warmer months when we can take our kayaks out on the lake since it is in the backyard!

Fantastic house for a weekend trip with kids

We stayed in the house for a weekend trip with three couples and three small kids to see the beautiful fall foliage in the Poconos and relax. It was great! The house is excellent, the location on the lake and the beach is spectacular, and the playground in front of the house was an added bonus. The house is quite large, and we had everything we needed. We'll certainly come back another time.

Rented this house for a 4 night stay which turned into a 5 night stay. The house was private with great access to the lake. It was clean and the fireplaces were awesome! A few dear came to visit us as well :) Matt was great to work with and was available whenever I had questions. Looking forward to heading back there some time again.

My boyfriend and 6 friends stayed at this house to bring in the new year! We had such a great time as the house is spacious and clean. Close to Jack Frost, Shawnee, and Camel Back mountains, as well as Mount Airey Casino, and cozy restaurants.
Was great having a big enough kitchen with all appliances to cook. Best part was fire place, and big space to enjoy ourselves. would recommend, and stay again!
