Blakeslee Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms - sleeps 8 comfortably.

We are located in Brier Crest Woods, close to Lake Harmony, Split Rock Resort and Jack Frost Ski Resort/Golf Course.

In the warm weather, get a relaxing start to your day sitting on the deck enjoying the view of the beautiful Pocono Mountains. You can spend the whole day just relaxing on the deck or head down to the life-guarded beach at the lake for the day. Take a drive to Tannersville, just 15 miles away, if you you're in for some shopping at the Crossings Outlets or visit Camel Beach where you can go zip lining or play at their water park. There are also plenty of places for hiking & canoeing or just exploring the beautiful Pocono Mountains; whatever you decide, there is something for everyone!

At the end of the day, the deck is a great place to unwind with your favorite beverage as you grill and/or watch the sunset.

In the cold weather cozy up in front of one of the fire places after a day on the slopes or just laze around in front the fire or shoot some pool, it's your vacation - it's your call.

There is plenty to do in the Pocono Mountains. We are just 2.5 miles to Big Boulder & 5 miles to Jack Frost Ski resorts. Just a few miles to Lake Harmony and Split Rock Resort. One mile from the Pocono Raceway; 15 miles from Tannersville Outlets and 17miles to Mt. Airy Resort & Casino.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I had my wife, 5 adult children, and 2 grandchildren here for a week in August of 2009. We loved the location, the large deck with an amazing view, and the time at the beach. The basement was a great place for our grandchildren to play, and the kitchen was supplied with adequate cookware. Only downside was lack of air conditioning for the late afternoon, but the breezes and fans made it manageable, and sleeping was fine. I would recommend this location highly....

Great place for having a great time.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. The location was great. The house was close to nice restaurants. Great location for many of the local attractions in the area. It was fun to just sit on the deck and look out over the mountains or sit in front of the fireplace with a warm fire. It was real quiet when we were there. Loved taking walks. Woke up one morning and a herd of deer were out front. Came in late one afternoon and a bunch of turkey were at the driveway. Great place. Plan to come back sometime.

The pictures don't do it justice. We brought our sons and some friends up to JFBB for some skiing and the place was great. Incredibly comfortable, plenty of space and great location. The first floor rec room was a big hit with the kids and it was nice to rent a place that actually had darts and pool cues that were in working order. The loft area gave our younger teen son and friends their own space when they needed a break, and the tv room on the second floor was a nice place for my wife and I to relax. Tracy is great to deal with and answered all of our questions. We've rented up here many times and for the price of this rental it really can't be beat. Will definately rent with the Tracy again.

Perfect Weekend Retreat Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd stay in this wonderful home and it has been amazing both times. So amazing that I'm going back in another 3 weeks!

It's easily accessible from major attractions in the area all while being a totally secluded house.

We love the place and will look forward to many more future weekend getaways!

The Blues Crew

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this house in July for the past few years. Ever since the first time we rented this place, we have fallen in love with it and don't even want to try and look to rent anywhere else. The house is very spacious and clean. The view of the Mountains from the front deck is excellent. We love the privacy it offers and its wooded surroundings. We stay here every year for the Poconos Blues Festival and even though the festival has moved much further away this year, we decided to rent here again. The owners are very accommodating as well. We couldn't ask for a better place to get away from it all. Thank you for renting to us year and year again.

My sister and I decided to stay at this lovely,very clean chalet in PA to celebrate the thanksgiving holiday and her birthday. It was absolutely wonderful!!! We loved it so much. I still miss being there. We couldn't get away from the fire place. We sat in front of it and talked for hours.The view was awesome!!! To sum it all up, it was a lovely little peaceful home to stay in and play in. I would love to come visit again.
