The chalet is in a private community with lots of space, and several things to do.

This custom made and spacey home includes 2 queen, 6 twin, and additional blow-up beds There is . There are also 3 relaxing porch areas with a view of the lake and a country style grill located in a vast yard out back. Private waterfront with a dock and a boat for fishing and exploring. A park with a basketball court, picnic area, swings and slides are also within walking distance.
A large group of friends and I were looking for a weekend away that would not break the bank or require anyone to travel too far from where they live (NYC and Philadelphia). It took all parties about two hours to get where they were coming from (until you hit GW Bridge traffic getting back to NYC). The house is very nice and spacious and the outdoor areas are great for grilling and hanging around on the deck. Though nicely located in a pushed back quiet neighborhood, house is a just a short ride from Tannersville where you can find any and all supplies, food and drink you may need. I highly recommend the house for any group, large or small, friends and/or family. There are more the enough beds (and couches) for everyone to sleep comfortably and not feel like they are all over one another. The landlord was very gracious, leaving sheets on all beds and allowing us to use the grill and his dishes -- of which there are plenty. He responds quickly to email and leaves very detailed instructions for use of his house...I highly recommend this house for your next Poconos getaway. I know I will.
Our family stayed 2 nights with our pets, we had a plenty of rooms & beds, and house was very cozy and comfy. We arrived late about 8pm, so owner let us stay till 3-4 since there was no booking in the day we check out. they give us flexible times during your stay if you talk to them a head of time. also, backyard had a fire place with barbeque grill & a lot of fire woods that you can use. also, they have own boat & kayaks where you can enjoy & have some water activities on the lake as well. our family really enjoyed it, and we would like to come on our next vacation too.
A fantastic home for vacation if u r planning for poconos. I strongly recommend this home. Me and my friends stayed here for 4 days and we had a good time. The rental owner provided all the necessary needs. Thanks to him.
My family has gone camping in the Poconos for many years, but this was the first time we rented a house. We had several things we wanted and needed: a place that would allow pets, a lake where we could canoe and kayak, a place that had a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, air conditioning, a screened-in porch plus a place to eat outside, an outdoor firepit for roasting marshmallows, and enough beds for 9 people. We found all this and more at this wonderful chalet!
The house had plenty of room for all of us: 5 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 younger children, and a small dog. The kids loved the TV, DVD player, and speaker system, as well as the boulder in the yard where they gathered to play with their action figures. There is a nice sun room/enclosed porch just off the kitchen with a large table where we ate some of our meals and played games. The kitchen also has a table. The back deck (one of three) holds a round umbrella table that was big enough for all 9 of us for supper. There are two grills for cooking (wood and propane) and a movable firepit that the owner helpfully stocked with wood for us. The living room has three couches and one large easy chair, as well as padded coffee tables/foot stools great for lounging or playing games. The four bedrooms with lots of drawer and closet space and two good-sized bathrooms worked out great for our large family. And the wi-fi access in the upstairs loft area helped the workaholic of our group keep in touch with his clients. The central air and ceiling fans offered welcome relief from the summer humidity.
We brought 2 kayaks and a canoe and also used one of the owner's kayaks on the smooth-as-glass lake. We enjoyed trips to the Lehigh-Gorge Trail, a local souvenir shop/petting zoo, and the Boulder Field in Hickory Run State Park.
The landscaped garden behind the house is delightful, and the slate-topped trunk "table" in the side yard is a nice touch. The woods beyond the driveway/parking area are beautiful.
I use crutches and was able to climb the few steps to the front door, although I preferred to enter via the back deck which only has two steps that are easier. The bathroom on the first floor was handy for me, and it was so nice to have a choice of bedrooms on the main level!
Books, DVDs, CDs, games, and linens were provided. The house was very clean, and the decorative accents were nice.
We would definitely consider renting this house again!
We decided on a thursday to take a last minute trip! This beautiful property was ready for us on Friday!!! There was plenty of room for all and games and DVDs to keep the kids busy! We walked across the street to the lake and enjoyed the scenery and playground! Most important the house was clean and convenient to everything ! Would recommend a stay here and hope to return not so last minute!
I booked a ski weekend at Camelback with a couple of close friends and relatives. This house was perfect for what we needed. It was large enough to easily fit all of us (6 adult men) with enough room for several more people. The house was clean and well kept. Having a washer/dryer was a great convenience. The wood burning stove did a great job of heating the house and there was ample wood supplied. The beds were clean and comfortable. All of the bed sheets, blankets and pillows were provided. Having two showers also made getting ready to go out after skiing much easier.
There was plenty of off street parking, which helped out since most were coming from different directions and with lots of gear so carpooling would have been challenging.
We brought a portable propane grill and an electric griddle to cook food so we didn't end up using the grill or range at the house, but they were available to us.
Mobile phone reception was spotty at best in the area, but having WiFi in the house made communicating with our families at home possible.
The lake area is beautiful and great for a hike or kayaking. There are neighbors, but the house has enough property that they are not right on top of you. This was one of my concerns when I was looking at renting from a condo. We wanted something a little more private.
My brother has a dog and being able to bring his dog along was a relief for him (and the dog).
The owners / property managers were accommodating and maintained good communication throughout the rental process. This was reassuring and was one of the deciding factors of why we chose this location over others.
I would definitely recommend this house to friends and relatives who are looking for a place in the area. We enjoyed it so much that we're hoping to make it a regular trip!
