Overview

Lake Harmony Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This recently built (2007) beautiful townhome is the perfect setting for a peaceful getaway anytime of the year! Since it was a model home, it has many luxurious accents that will help to make your vacation memorable and comfortable. It has over 2,600 sq. ft. of living space so up to 10 people will feel that you have plenty of space!

The home overlooks the tennis courts and the 175 acre Big Boulder Lake and beach, which are a walk (or a very short drive) away in the summer. At the Lake Mountain Club, there is a heated pool and baby pool and boats available for rental by the hour. Tennis courts are available, at no charge, both behind our home and at the Lake Mountain Club. Passes to the club are included in your rental.

In the winter you can be at the ski slopes in under 5 minutes. From our outside deck, you will have a beautful view of Big Boulder Mountain. A few steps inside and you are back sitting next to the fireplace.

Nearby are two great golf courses, Split Rock and and the new 5 Star Jack Frost National. Both present challenges to golfers and offer beautiful vistas. You can also enjoy hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, 2 casinos, movie theatres,bowling,and great visits to nearby State Parks and the new water park at Split Rock Lodge. Come see all the area has to offer you!

There are 3 floor of living in our home. On the main floor is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living area with a beautiful gas fireplace and a powder room. Also on the entry floor is a master bedroom suite featuring a soaking tub, a 20 inch TV and a king size bed. In the living room, there is a 42 inch plasma TV with DVD player and a CD/Stereo system. From the kitchen, there is a walkout to our deck with an outdoor table and chairs and gas operated grill for cooking out anytime of the year.

Upstairs you will find two more bedrooms, one with a queen bed and a tv and one with 2 twins and a TV.

The walkout basement has been converted into a family room with a 42 inch TV/DVD. A pool table, and dart board complete the recreation area. You will also find 2 more bedrooms on the lower level, one with a queen bed and a TV and one with twin beds and a TV. Wireless internet service is available throughout the house.

One of the best features of this 3 floor home is that you can be together as a group and yet have space to be apart and have privacy.

We prefer 1 famiy or 2 small families or groups of mature couples. We do not allow smoking or pets and prefer tenants over the age of 25 years. We ask that you take care of our home as if it is your own.

We hope that you, like many others have done, will enjoy our house and have a wonderful experience here!

About Susan Bernstein

We are a couple of professionals, a financial planner and a psychologist with 2 teenage children. We like to travel as a family

Susan Bernstein purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Susan Bernstein chose Lake Harmony Area

Big Boulder in the Poconos is a very convenient location for a quick getaway anytime of the year. We enjoy all of the seasons there. The fall and spring are beautiful, in the winter, we like to take advantage of the winter sports, especially skiing and snowboarding, and in the summer, we enjoy the lake and outdoor activities such as golf, hiking and biking. We also love the townhouse itself, its styling and amenities.

What makes this townhome unique

We enjoy the soaking tub, the pool and ping pong table, all of the TV's. We like walking and hiking in the area, enjoy the Lake Mountain Club and pool and proximity to the ski slopes.

doesn't return deposits on time

  • 2 of 5

Someone went to take a shower when we arrived, immediately there was a significant leak leaving one of the bedrooms, and the master bath, unusable. Miss Bernstein was responsive and sent a plumber and promised a refund on the appropriate portion of the rental fee. Unfortunately it took a formal complaint being filed with home away, multiple phone calls, and 4 weeks for Mrs. Bernstein to return our security deposit, let alone the compensation for the leak. She finally answered my calls and said "Oh. Oops. I haven't gotten around to processing your refund yet". Asides from the leak, the house itself was fine. Note, this is not a private house; it's a four family home. Otherwise the description is accurate.

Owner's Response: In response to your review I believe an explanation is in order. Unfortunately there was a leak in the large soaking tub in the master bath. When guest notified me of issue, water dripping from heat vent I immediately called emergency service that arrived to discover the issue was a pluming leak not a heating and air conditioning leak. The guests neglected to tell me the leak occurred while filling the tub. The master bedroom shower and and vanity were fully operational. My plumber arrived the next AM and dicovered the source of leak which could not be repaired with out tearing up the ceiling of room below. We decided to wait until house would be empty to make repairs. Fortunately there are 2 other full bath rooms in the house and the only thing affected was the soaking tub. I contacted another home owner and arranged for guests to stay at a similar 5 bedroom townhouse a couple of doors away but they choose to remain in the house. I offered to refund a portion of the rental fee for their inconvience. Town houses by nature are connected to each other in clusteres, I was not aware that guests thought they were staying in a single family home. The photos on line show the front of townhouse as well as pictures of the inside. The deposit and partial refund were refunded within the 30 day period stated in paperwork. I normally try to refund security deposit as soon as house is cleaned and inspected. I was traveling and did not get a chance to refund security deposit for several weeks. It was still within the 30 day refund period. We try to accommodate our guests as much as possible, but the leak was not something I could have known about since it never occurred before. Not sure what else we could have done to accommodate an unfortunate occurrence.

Beautiful, clean, well equipped home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying at the Bernstein's townhouse at Boulder Lake. Our kids loved the lake, boating, volleyball, and pool at the Boulder Lake Club. They had a great time playing pool and ping pong at the house. The adults appreciated the cleanliness, comfort, and how well stocked the house was when we arrived. We've stayed in many different VRBO homes and this was definitely one of the nicest ones. We all enjoyed the area and found plenty to do within a half hour drive (visiting Jim Thorpe, horseback riding at Daisy Field Farm, white water rafting, and outdoor adventures at Camelback Mountain.) It was also very helpful to be able to stay a little bit later on check out day since we were dropping off our children at sleep away camp in the area at 3:00. We had a great week a would definitely stay in this home again.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our annual Girls Weekend this year! Two of us had the pleasure of staying all week while the others joined us Thursday. The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with what we needed to make our own meals. The pool table and ping pong downstairs were great fun as well. We will definitely keep this house in mind for future rentals.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during Memorial day weekend. The property was clean and spacious for 10 people (6 adults, 4 kids) with enough room to spread out. The property is conveniently located near Lake Harmony, with a few good restaurants around. Susan was incredibly helpful throughout our stay, promptly answering all our questions. We would like to come back and recommend to anyone visiting the Lake Harmony area.

Very nice and clean! It had all we needed for our weekend stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year here. The house was very spacious and well equipped with everything you need. The kids had a blast playing pool and ping pong in the basement gaming area. The owner was great to communicate with and had a lot of information about the surrounding area. We felt very much at home and would highly recommend this property!!
