About Norma Phillips

My wife and I have lived on the east coast for years and prefer car destination vacations over airplane. We have been up and down the east coast searching for great places to stay. We have 2 young children and call Delaware our home.

Norma Phillips purchased this house in 2004

Why Norma Phillips chose Poconos

We were looking for a place that was within 3 hours of our home in Delaware, and we loved adventure. The Poconos was a great area

that still felt undiscovered. There were so many unique and small little towns that speckled the area and we loved exploring them all. We loved to be on water so we could paddle and fish and just enjoy the outdoors. After doing a lot of looking we found this house on Lake Carobeth back in 2004 and set it up to be a vacation destination that our friends and family would love. The rest is history.

What makes this house unique

The Pink house sits high above the lake yet close enough that you feel so close to is. The sun hits the deck in the morning and it is the greatest place to wake up and have coffee and plan your day,

Both downstairs bedrooms have small little deck areas and direct views to the lake. When the sun comes up it just draws you to want to get out on the lake. That's why we provide rowboats and canoes so anyone can start their day off with an envigorating paddle. At the end of the day one can enjoy the indoor jacuzzi tub to relax and unwind.

GREAT home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved staying at this home. The view was phenomenal and this home just made us feel like we were in our own home. Every single room gave us a sense of warmth and coziness. We were extremely sad to have to leave. We would love to return for the summer; it must be awesome to be able to use the boats and go swimming in the lake. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your home. :]

Everything we wanted for our overnight getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the pink house was great! The house was beautiful and comfy and the view was amazing. It had everything we needed and comfortably fit the 11 guests we had stay over night. Dan was a wonderful host and was conveniently available by text or call if we had any questions. Our stay at the pink house was a great get away and we are looking forward to hopefully coming back when it gets warmer.

Great Weekend With Friends

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for its price point. It has a large common space with plenty of seating for everyone you are with, and there is also plenty of sleeping space. The owners of the house were very responsive, and helpful when it came to what to bring with us and how everything in the house worked. This is a great place to stay with a group of friends any time of year.

More Than You Can Hope For...

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to this roomy, vista perfect, lovely home on the lake for our 5 day 4 night stay.This was our first venture to the poconos in a gated community.The rooms are more then you can hope for in a vacation home. The choices of rooms is amazing. 2 bedrooms downstairs with bathrooms close by, laundry and access to outside. OR upstairs on the main floor with a florida room ,fireplace stove, powder room and sliding glass doors throughout that lead to the deck.Then there is the loft with a king bed, a futon AND a fold down double. Great place to retreat to to read ,do crosswords or watch what you want on tv. Main floor affords you access to the deck with chairs and a table so you can see forever over the lake. The snow storm we had only added to the beauty of the place. FYI people showed up almost instantly to shovel out the driveway. It seriously took all our anxiety away regarding that hateful chore. Thanks..We bundled up and enjoyed the fire pit lakeside and had a ball!! We sat on the dock and could look at so many beautiful close you could touch them. The stay was perfect!!!! My son touted it as the best birthday he ever had. He manned the fire inside and out and really satisfied his outdoorsman personna. We can't thank you enough for making this experience easy and pleasant from start to finish. Carolyn and Pat

Owner's Response: HI Guys Thanks for taking to time to write such nice things. You hit on all the things we love so much about the house. Especially being outside at night with the fire going. Come back again in the summer, and take a canoe paddle around the lake at midnight it is an incredible experience!

Thanksgiving weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family (7 of us) spend very nice weekend at the "Pink house". House was clean, roomy and kitchen was well equipped. We loved sitting by the fireplace and watching the lake while it was snowing. Kids had fun playing games and watching deers. One thing that I would like to suggest to the owners is to think about new mattresses.

Owners are very nice and organized people.

I would definitely came back but this time in summer to enjoy beautiful lake :)
