Spectacular lake front houses on beautiful Lake Harmony. You will not find anything like this. These are two spectacular 4 bedroom houses on the same property right on Lake Harmony, with the cottage being about 30 feet in front of the larger house. Both have several large flat screen tvs (each house has a 43" smart tv), hot tubs (indoor in the larger house, the cottage has one outdoor), AC, outdoor fire pits, wireless, cable, wood burning fireplace in the larger house and gas fireplace in the cottage and the larger house has a pool table and jacuzzi in the master bedroom. There are two docks and a deck on beautiful Lake Harmony, and they are about a 5 minute walk to popular restaurants and night spots. The property is minutes from JFBB and Split Rock Resort.

As for the beds in the larger house, the master on top level has a king, the loft area with a single, two bedrooms on the main level, each with a queen and bunk bed (one bunk bed has a full on the bottom), the bedroom on the game room level has 1 bunkbed and one single (sleeps 3) and a pull out queen couch in the game room area.

In the cottage one bedroom has a queen, one a full bed, one room with 2 singles and one bedroom with one bunk bed and one twin (so will sleep 3) and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchens are perfect for cooking for large families or groups, including breakfast bars with seating for 3, and have a stove, oven & microwave. The kitchens are fully equipped with everything you need to cook, eat and drink. Off of the kitchen is the dining room area that has a 8’ dining room table that can seat up to 10. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer for your convenience in each house.

The property is located about 1 mile to Big Boulder, 4 miles to Jack Frost and 2 miles from the H20 indoor water park and the Galleria at Split Rock. The property is minutes from numerous activities such as horseback riding, paintball, hiking, white water rafting, fishing, hunting, mountain biking, shopping, and golf. Lake Harmony is located 90 miles from NYC & Philadelphia. Lake Harmony is a private powerboat lake that permits fishing, power boating (If you are bringing your boat, please call for a copy of the registration form) , water skiing, sailing and jet skiing (there are no jet ski rentals). You can swim off the docks that are right in front of the property. In the winter, weather permitting you can ice skate and ice fish on the lake. Views are amazing.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Owners are very accommodating and property was clean and in good working order. Great for kids and adults alike. I recommend renting both properties so that docks, fire pit etc do not need to be shared with another family staying very close by. Weather was amazing and house is close by to restaurants and groceries. Thanks for a great time!!

We had a great time! It was great for a 3 year old and a 60 year old.

The weather was great and there was plenty of space for all 19 of us!

Looking forward to another visit.

Birthday party

  • 5 of 5

We had my husband's 50th birthday party here and there was enough room for both his and my families. It was great being on the water front, and we arranged for parking at the inn down the street so it was convenient for everyone. Wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks so much!

Perfect for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Our church fellowship had a wonderful time here. We held a trip for a few days with a group of 18 college students. Everything was as good as advertised, and more. There was plenty to do at the house and around the house. The weather was beautiful!

One thing I will say and I think may need to be more clear is that the canoes on property are not for use. Aside from that, Barry's instructions were extremely detailed and very helpful.

Owner's Response: There is one canoe and it is owned by my kids. It is sometimes available to rent, along with the paddle boat and kayak, but usually only for weekly rentals. Guests need to discuss with me if interested in renting any of them. John was a great guest, but did not even ask about renting the canoe until he was at the property. In fact, John advised me his group was coming up to go kayaking: "We just need a place to stay because we are going kayaking the next day." I apologized to him for any confusion. Also, my understanding from John was that this was a group of graduate students. In the end it apparently all worked out.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Held weekend family reunion for ages 10-80 from PA, NJ, & NY. 19 people all arrived in about 2 hrs driving time. Appreciated the short driving distance and central proximity to location for all involved. Lots of room in N. Lake House for the whole group to gather together. A little cool, but there was plenty to do, and children especially enjoyed fishing off the docks. Quick trip by car or walk to a half dozen excellent restaurants and a convenience store makes it easy to avoid any lengthy driving. Lots of helpful information on website and owner is easy to work with.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both houses for a guys weekend and had an absolute blast. Both houses were clean upon our arrival and accommodated all of our needs. We were fortunate the weather held out for us on Saturday and allowed us to hangout by the lake, great times!
