A Very Special Estate: Welcome to Himmlischer Chateau (Heavenly Home), where the dream, group vacation experience comes together through the eyes of an award-winning developer and Disney engineers.

This may well be the nicest house for rent in the Poconos but why take our word for it, click the photos show link at the bottom and read our customer reviews.

Location Details: Location

Himmlischer is located at the top of a private four season community complex, offering year round activities. The lodge, restaurant, bar, food market, pool, tiki bar, waterslides, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and bocci ball courts are right next to the house at the lodge. You won't get run over while teaching your kids how to ski here and you park just once and ski-in and out the whole week or use our 6 passenger custom limo golf cart to get around in spring, summer, and fall. There is also a fitness center, beach, horseback riding, fishing, boats and sport courts to use. A spa with indoor pool, golf, rafting, canoeing, paintball, Eagle Institute observation area, museums, miniature golf, go carts, batting cages antiquing and family fun park are all minutes away.

House Design: The center piece of the top floor is a commercial, Tapan-Yaki steak house kitchen and nicer furniture and cabinets than I have in my own home. Before drafting the house, we blueprinted the fun for every activity and part of our think-tank process was considering where adults and children of each age group would congregate. Adults savor the top floor most often and teenagers congregate in the game room. We put plasma TV’s and DVD players in 3 of the bedrooms so that parents can put cartoons on for toddlers.

The first floor was designed for families with the youngest children in mind. Since they are usually the first to wake up and go to the game room theater, everyone else above them can still get some sleep. We also recognized how hard it can be to get kids to eat when they are having fun, so we put an extra kitchen on this level and a card table.

Every conceivable thing that you will do here, we have done at other rentals and brainstormed about making it better.

Please be sure to also view our Seashore and Ski-in/ski-out Houses in New Jersey Homeaway #917420, Pennsylvania Homeaway #211425, and soon to open in West Virginia and Cozumel Mexico.

The best mountain house I ever rented

I stayed at this house based on a recommendation from a friend, and they were right. The house is set up on three floors. The first floor has bedrooms, a movie theater and game room. The second floor has TWO master suites that look out on the ski slopes, and two other bedrooms. The top floor has a monstrous kitchen and dining room, a 15 foot tall fireplace, and a very large living room. It also has a 20 foot movie screen, with a great sound system. This house has a lot going for it. First off, it is located on the slope. I mean you walk out your door and put your skis on. The layout makes it great for staying and entertaining with large groups. We stayed with four families without anybody getting in each other's way. Because of the great layout, when we stayed, the kids pretty much entertained themselves on the first floor, playing video games on a 12 foot screen. The "adults" partied on the top floor with our own theater, as well as the huge hot tub out on the deck. This house is the only mountain house I will ever rent.

4/25/08 - JOHN, We had the greatest time my husband rented the house for my 40th birthday for me and my girlfriends the age group was from 18 to 60 we had a blast. This is the 2nd time I had rented this house we previously rented it for superbowl sunday and it only gets better. We had fun just sitting around and hanging in the house to going to the lodge on Saturday playing bingo and going to the bar for kariokee. Well I am sure this won't be the last time we will be staying. Thanks Roseann

John the house was great, the mountain was great and everyone we delt with from the lift attendents to the people in the front office are great. We had 18 people in our party including children starting with a 3year old and going up. Everyone had a blast and can't wait until next year. We fit everyone in the house and still had plenty of room. The kids enjoyed the downstairs while the adults enjoyed the upstairs. The skiing was excellent and although we had one night of rain the conditons were great. Looking forward to next year.

What a beautiful retreat! The moment we pulled into the driveway and opened the door, we felt like we were home. Young and old ran about the place to check out every nook and were pleasantly surprised at every turn. A magnificent house with a cozy feel coupled with all the extra amenities made it so you did not ever have to leave the house! But those of us who ventured out where greeted with the gorgeous views during our hikes and the quiet stillness of nature all just out our front door. The mountain kept the kids going all day long skiing and snowboarding without ever getting too crowded or noisy. With quick access to the mountain, it was easy to take a break to warm up and jump right back out to the slopes! We were also able to visit the stables and take a ride on the horses and let the kids feed the sheep. At night, we soaked in the the hot tub and then enjoyed our personal movie theater as we all piled on the couch. We definitely plan on making this an annual trip! We would also like to come back during a different season to check out some other sports and try fishing, golfing and horseback riding.

This was a great super bowl weekend. The house was wonderful and we even had the please of our home team winning the super bowl. We were about nineteen people all familes with children. We go away a lot as a group and this trip is on the top of the list. We loved the house more than we ever expected. I was so impressed that I want to rent it for my 40th birthday weekend. The ski resort was perfet not too crowded and everyone at every age level from 5 to 45 had something to do. I know this will be a yearly thing as far as we are concerned.

Awsome! What a great way to start the New Year! That was just the get away our family needed. My husband and I own our own business and were looking forward to our vacation but were blown away when we saw the amazing "mountain house". It was far more than we had ever expected. Very spacious, tastefully designed with more comforts than home. We have vacationed in every state on the East Coast, numerous tropical islands, South American countries, and even took an extended cross country trip from New Jersey to Washington State and back again. But this was the quality time we needed to get back to the basic of life. My daughter and I really enjoyed the moring hikes thru the wooded trails. Handfeeding the deer just outside the back door was a one of her favorites.

Our boys loved having the "house at the top of the mountain",not to mention their own high-tech theatre/game room downstairs.Being located so close to the lodge, trails and lifts was a great conveience.

My husband and I enjoyed the hottub on the upper deck, very relaxing and what a view! We're looking forward to our return vacation retreat. Next time we'd like to try a change of season, maybe check out the lake for some water sports this Summer. Thank you for opening your dream home to us. It was a vacation that will always be truely appreciated by our whole family.

Thanks again, Helen and Tim Lenzsch

John, Great time!! Best last minute vacation! Everyone had a blast. We don't know where the time went, 4 days of fun flew by and we only left the house to ski! Opened the front door to say Hi to the deer every day, as they are always out front. Can't wait till November. Or sooner..Thanks for a great home! Cathy Rhoads

We've stayed at Masthope before,but never with such beautiful accomidations. What a house! Our family had the best of our winter vacations this year. This house belongs in Colorado! The amenities are unbeliveable-we can't wait tocome back in other seasons. There isn't anything you can't do here. Depending on the season you can fish, enjoy water sports,golf, horseback riding,hiking and snow skiing/snow sports. Nature at it's finest. Spectacular views! We love it! It was a wonderful family getaway with other great friends and their families. The adults cooked and socialized in an awesome kitchen/living room theater. The kids could not have had more fun in the game roomw/actual theater seating w/12' screen to play their games on(PS3, XBOX, etc.) as well as watching movies!Thanks so much for offering such a beautiful family getaway! We couldn't ask for more. We will defiinitely be back!

WOW ! Great location on mountain. If you want the best house available this is it. Ski in and out, walk to lodge, pro shop and convenience store. Great views and plenty of room in house for all to enjoy as a group or in private. Park your car and never move it for length of stay. This is living with the life of luxury.
