Large, clean, newly upgraded house directly on the lake in the Poconos, with reliable air conditioning, hot tub, kayak, canoe, pedal boat, fire pit, beautiful views and lots more. This house is very family friendly - lots of toys/games provided. The owner really cares about this house and pays attention to the little details.
The location directly on the lake is great for fishing, or taking one of the boats out. The owner even provides a plethora of life vests, and blow-up tubes to float on (plus an electric pump to blow air into the tubes). Private dock and swing set located on property. The hot tub is large. The fire pit was a big hit with our group (be sure to bring or buy your own firewood). The house is well lit outside at night – there are flood lights all around the house (front, back and sides), and there is lighting along the path to the lake. The grill outside requires propane tanks. When we arrived, all propane tanks were nearly empty, so we refilled them.
The house was very clean. The kitchen and bathrooms were recently renovated, the furniture is very comfortable, and the décor throughout is inviting. Beach chairs are provided and are comfortable. There is a bench swing by the lake, which is peaceful. Wifi was included - reliable and fast. There is a wine fridge, and 2nd fridge which were both very reliable and roomy.
I would recommend the linen package. The sheets provided were clean and crisp, and the towels were nice. The only thing you will need to bring is outdoor/beach towels.
A full size washer and dryer are included in the house.
Locust Lake community offers several beaches and parks, and different community events (check calendar).
The closest beach is within walking (3 minute walk). The trash/recycling center is less than 5 minute drive from the house.
What’s nearby: Ahart’s grocery market, Wawa and Dunkin’ Donuts (15 minutes away), and Walmart, Giant, and McDonald’s are about 25 minutes away. There are 2 casinos nearby (Mount Airy and Mohegan Sun). Both are about 20 minutes away.
The owner, Allison, is very responsive and will answer any questions you have. She makes herself available to you with the touch of a text message.
This is a great house to enjoy time with your friends/family and outdoors. It’s the perfect lake house, especially for a large group.
We are already making plans to rent next year. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.
