About the property

Pinecrest Lake Golf & Country Club- 4 Season Community--close to resorts

Want to get away? You can relax, ski, sightsee + in beautiful, pristine Pinecrest Lake Golf and Country Club in my warm, comfortable private home? Enjoy a wood burning FP (free firewood) in the LR, serve 8 guest in dining area and cook (if you want in an fully equipped, updated kitchen), bedroom, 2 bath cottage nestled in a natural pine and laurel forest in the Poconos? If you are looking to get-a-way for a quiet retreat but close to amenities this is it! The ski resorts are 14 miles in either direction.

There is parking for two cars in the driveway. As you park your car take a minute to enjoy the beautiful community. Pinecrest does the snow plowing (and when completed in the community shovels to the front door), and landscaping in the community. It is pristine and beautiful.

Walk into the open concept living space with cathedral ceiling, skylights, Pergo flooring, comfortable living room, breakfast bar, dining area and you will feel relaxed. After a day of fun, enjoy sitting in the comfortable living room relaxing on leather furniture or sitting and reading in an Eddie Bauer recliner next to the fireplace. The flat screen TV/DVD and CD player are located here. The open concept living space has a cathedral ceiling, Pergo flooring, a dining table that seats eight, a breakfast bar that seat three, and sliding door that opens to the deck.

The kitchen has lots of dishes, silverware, glasses, pots and pans. It has been equipped by a Home Economics educator. All the appliances are upgraded and the kitchen range and microwave were replaced last year. The refrigerator has a bottom freezer that includes an ice maker. The Maytag HE front loading and dryer are conveniently located in a closet area in the hallway will accommodate a queen bedspread and is efficient. . Linens are not supplied but are available from my manager for a fee. Fee depends on the number of guests.

The cottage has three newly carpeted bedrooms and all are equipped with flat screen TV and a DVD player for extra enjoyment. The master bedroom has an on-suite bathroom and a queen bed. The second bedroom is decorated in a mountain theme and has a double bed plus a Castro convertible ottoman opens into a single bed if extra sleeping is desired. The third bedroom (a favorite for children since it has bunk beds plus a single bed) is decorated in a Mickey Mouse theme.

In the summer, swim in the heated mountain side pool with all the lounge chairs and umbrellas already set and waiting for you. There is also a snack bar if you are hungry. Swim, play tennis, volleyball, basketball or hike the Pinecrest trails. The Pinecrest Golf course is now managed by Brown Golf Management who owns and manages 23 other clubs. Reservations are required for golf, dining and tennis. Fishing from the canoe or pedal boat is also another activity. Don't forget if you are looking for a relaxing retreat stay in the cottage and enjoy the quiet of the woods. You will not be disappointed.

Other resorts are short drive: Jack Frost and Big Boulder are 15 minutes and Camelbback is only 20 minutes and offer year round activities. It is a short drive to state game lands-Big Pocono State Park, Tobyhanna State Park, Hickory Run State Park & Delaware Water Game National Park + many great hiking trails in Pinecrest. The Lehigh River provides whitewater rafting & kayaking trips and the companies also offer Skirmish. Pocono Manor, Carsons or Mountaincreek offer horseback riding adventures. Pocono Manor Golf Club, Buck Hill Golf Club + many other golf courses are nearby or for an additional charge or enjoy golfing at Pinecrest. The Mt. Airy Casino is just 12 miles away. Shopping/Antiquing & Pocono Bazaar flea market are also close by. The Crossing outlets in Tannersville have many great bargains.

About Constance Rowell

Our family has shared many happy memories in the Poconos and wanted others to be able to have a wonderful time so we decided to share our home. I am a retired high school teacher and my husband was an Electrical Engineer from PECO and taught mathematics at Camden County College

Constance Rowell purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Constance Rowell chose Poconos

Beautiful private community with amenities. Our roads are private and the community management is phenomenal. They take care of the amenities, landscaping, roads, leaf and snow removal, trash from our home plus much more.

What makes this cottage unique

Owner operated successfully for 10 years and our goal is to have our guests feel as comfortable in our home as they do in theirs. This is a home away from home.

Super Home and Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family (Parents and 3 college students) had a wonderful time in the Poconos with Constance's home serving as our home for the week. We enjoyed the community beach, canoeing, tennis, and walks all in available in the private community and through the home rental and a short walking distance from the home. Located in the Poconos and not too far away are whitewater rafting and Dorney Park amusement park.

The house was perfect with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms and a great open living room/kitchen. There is also a deck with a grill which enabled us to grill a couple of times during the week. The house is well kept and and very comfortable. We appreciated the games, stereo and cable tv while we were in the house.

Constance was awesome to coordinate travel plans and was also very responsive to our questions about the area, community, and home. We definitely would rent this house again when we vacation in the Poconos. A great all around experience renting this home.

A great summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this house. We spent a lot of our time in the Pinecrest community, swimming in the pool and lake, canoeing, biking, fishing and playing tennis. It was perfect for our kids (ages 9 and 6), who could walk or bike to the lake or pool with us.

The house was very well-maintained and clean, and had plenty of room for us. It was great to have the deck for eating and hanging out outside. And the games and DVDs were also much appreciated.

The house is also centrally located. We went to Camelback for zip-lining, Jim Thorpe for rafting and Hickory Run State Park.

Finally, Constance was wonderful to deal with and extremely responsive to all our inquiries. We would definitely recommend this house to friends and stay there again.

We rented this home from Connie 2 years ago and we are back!

You can not go wrong renting this home because you are renting a home not a house. Everything in the home makes you feel welcome the moment you arrive. It’s on a cul de sac so the area is quiet and peaceful.

This year we made a last minute decision to go to the Poconos & were glad to see the dates open at Connie’s. She was very helpful & accommodating working with us even with the short notice we gave her.

This home is all one floor so it’s good for a disabled person (but there are 2 steps to get inside) and its quite roomy. There is a walkway to the home which is on an upward slant but it can be taken slowly. We did have our Mom with us last time (94 yrs old) and she loved it. The 3 bedrooms give you plenty of room; we only used the master bedroom but it’s not hard to imagine a child’s joy in seeing the Mickey Mouse bedroom with all it’s many Disney items.

The well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room and the gated deck with a gas grill & furnishings add to your comfort as well as the air-conditioning (which we found many Pocono houses do not have). Many DVDs, Cds, board games, books and toys are there for your enjoyment. It was great to be able to have our dog with us. Feisty enjoyed his many walks to the lake and following several stone trails through the woods. This gave us some exercise too! An occasional chipmunk, squirrel, rabbit or deer would suddenly appear. The lake also supplied some fishing time & Connie has a canoe and pedal boat for your use.

Connie includes guest passes so you can make use of the large, beautiful pool and other amenities of the Country Club. We were too early for the pool but did look it over and it is beautiful.

The area has many things of interest: Catholic Church-5 min., Jubilee Restaurant-7 min., Mt Airy Casino-20 min., Tobyhanna Park-15 min., shopping & restaurants (Smuggler's Cove is great) in Tannersville area-20 min., Mt Pocono shops & restaurants-20 min. In Mt. Pocono we went to the quaint Casino Movie Theatre where your food was served to you at your seat!

We would recommend this home to almost anyone. It’s especially great if you like traveling with your dog and just want to relax in comfort.

To repeat what we said 2 years ago:

“Our best advice is if you want a nice HOME with a caring owner rent this HOME-you can't go wrong!!! Thanks again Connie for sharing your HOME with us!!”

Great Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

A great place to get away; I vacationed here with my family and my sister's family. The house was very clean and was big enough to accommodate all of us. This is a very family friendly house, my niece loved the Mickey/Minnie Mouse room and there where baby toys and books for our little ones to play with. Connie was a pleasure to work with and very helpful and answers all questions in a timely manner.

We cannot wait to go back next year!

Excellent weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

With the goal of having a restful weekend in the mountains, we rented Constance's home. It was amazing!

Our children and dog loved the little lake that was a short walk from the house and Sunday morning my wife and boys went out on the paddleboat for a leisurely trip around the lake.

The home was ideal for our family with space for the boys (who loved the Disney room), a grill, and fireplace. We had s'mores after a nice hike around Lake Tobyhanna.

Contance made the whole process very easy. She communicates very well and is incredibly organized (even emailing us updated directions to the house complete with pictures!). The house itself was bright, clean, and came with an information book for the area and the house.

It was a pleasure to spend the weekend at their home and we look forward to returning in the future.

The home was lovely

  • 5 of 5

My cousin family and I rented Constance house #123048 for a weekend of April 25 and we had a wonderful time. The home was lovely. The house was exactly as via the web photos. The rooms were spacious and clean. The Mickey Mouse children's room was beautiful for our kids. The kitchen was well equipped. There was a beautiful lake, and we had a great time using the boats. I definitely recommend this home to anyone, or any family that is looking to get away for the weekend. Constance was extremely responsive to all my questions and very helpful. She gave me info for our weekend activities. Our kids enjoyed a lot, we feel like our home and we'll back for sure.
