Sorry--this house is already almost completely booked ski weekends except for the third weekend in March. However---spring is coming, and it is a great time for a relaxing getaway! Prices are lower, the house has plenty of amenities--hot tub, pool table, 2 refrigerators, large deck with gas grill and furniture, large HDTV with upgraded cable and plenty of recent DVDs provided! There are hiking and biking trails nearby, or you can just chill out at the house. We are starting to fill in our summer dates, so check the calendar and plan your vacation!
Are you a worrier who doesn't know what to expect when you open the door of your rental property? Our regulars look forward to finding what we added or upgraded each year!
We renovate and refurbish our houses regularly--this year in this house, we just added a wall mounted, 60' HDTV in the living room, along with plenty of other new furniture renovations!
This is a really well maintained home right in Lake Harmony--so you'll be close to Big Boulder, all the Lake Harmony restaurants, or you can cook out on the grill on the deck. In the right weather, the deck is a great place for morning coffee or an after dinner drink, too!
We also redid both bathrooms so they are updated, bright and clean--and we also put in a brand new kitchen (new cabinets, countertops, backsplash) with a new flat top stove (also easy to keep clean!) We pride ourselves in keeping our properties in great condition so you won't have to worry about any unpleasant surpises!
This large house is fully-equipped for your vacation needs. Six-person, covered, outdoor hot tub, large in-wall A/C unit to cool the entire upstairs (downstairs stays cool without A/C), two TVs with expanded cable and 30 digital music channels, broadband internet access (so bring your laptop), a large supply of DVDs, pool table, a full-size refrigerator on each floor (you can use the downstairs one to store all your refreshments and extra ice!), a washer and dryer, and two romantic gas fireplaces for off season and winter renters. There is an upstairs deck with furniture and a downstairs covered patio. Plenty of (brand new) windows in the living room/dining room, so it is always bright and airy. You don't have to worry about the weather - there's plenty to do at the house!
Lake Harmony has its own community beach, and we are very close (within 2 miles) of H2OOO, the indoor water park at Split Rock, and the Galeria (movie theater, shops). We have a large circular drive (no longer permitted, but we were grandfathered in, so you'll appreciate not having to keep moving everyone's cars to get out). We are close to the Lake Harmony restaurants, beach and food store. And Lake Harmony does not have the daily car or renters fees that some other developments charge, so renting here is quite a Poconos vacation deal! You also can easily travel to Camelbeach, The Outlets, Mohegan Sun Casino (at Pocono Downs), Jim Thorpe or go white water rafting on the Lehigh River--all are within an easy 30 minute drive (or less). There is also horseback and bicycle riding (and rentals) in the area.
If you're just into a relaxing vacation---you can just hang out at the house. Have some quiet time on the deck with your coffee or cocktail, spend a lazy afternoon in the hot tub, play some pool, or just watch some of our many recent DVDs.
Pets are permitted with an additional security deposit. We are family-friendly - don't make Sparky stay home! Late checkout is sometimes available, especially on weekend rentals (but usually not in the summer). Sorry, no young groups, no proms, no high school graduation parties without adults staying, too.
All of our houses are set up so your party will not be 'squeezed in'. However, we only allow up to 10 adults or a family of 12---not 12 adults. We have a large dining room table that easily seats 8, with an additional side table for 4 nearby. You'll find many homes have only counter space for eating, since the dining room is being used for extra sofa beds or a pool table. We have seen houses that sleep 20 but only have 4 or 5 bedrooms and a table for 4. We don't look for the type of group that would be comfortable in that situation--we prefer families, 'grown-ups', and groups or couples that often can't get away because they need some one to watch their pet.
We have an optional $100 cleaning fee. If you leave the house as clean as you received it, we do not charge you for cleaning. Hardly anyone has this money saving offer--all the realtors will automatically charge you for cleaning (and that's in addition to other fees). Since we're in the area, we also check the house ourselves and make sure everything is in working order, and we're available if anything needs repairing or if you need assistance figuring out how to work something!
And since we're in the area, we have a hot tub maintenance business for other rental property owners who do not live nearby---so you know our hot tub is always clean and in good operating condition!
PLEASE NOTE!!! For YOUR protection, we only accept payments by check sent to our home address (not a PO Box), through Paypal, or by cash paid directly to us--and then only at check in! And we never, never ask for a wire transfer or use MoneyGram--there are scammers trolling VRBO sites who ask for payments through them.
