John or Rita purchased this house in 2006
We Loved this location when we first saw how the beautiful & Private it is along with being right on the lake sold us the first time we saw the area. We have a huge backyard & welcome dogs as well.
Our Lake house sits on a wooded lot where many deer frequent. We are greeted by our 4 legged friends every morning! One of our little guests named the deer 'LuLu' and ever since she's been a popular addition to the family! Since we love to fish, we both enjoy the luxury of walking out of our door and the convenience of having our boats right in our own backyard. We also love being able to use the Pool in Summer and enjoy the Indoor Pool & Sauna all year round, never running out of things to do to keep us occupied. We also love the convenience of being close to Camelback Ski Resort, Kalahari Water Park, and the Crossing's Shopping Outlets as well.
We had a wonderful White Christmas! We loved feeding the deer in the morning
and the evening. We found they like dried fruit and nuts. Spent Christmas eve at
Camelback & Christmas night at Big Boulder Snow Boarding. Went tubing on the
26th had a blast but long lines since it's a Holiday Week. Camelback is the Best
place for Snow Tubing for the whole family! We came all the way from Texas!
It was a nice visit and we'll miss the deer!!

We really loved the home. In terms of my criteria for spending a winter weekend in the Pocono's, I really wanted a home that was clean and nicely laid out. It definitely met those needs. And my friends and I really wanted a home that had a pool table and a hot tub. Well, the pool table was in perfect condition......we played a lot of pool.......and I think the hot tub was very recently purchased. It seemed brand spanking new. And it easily fit 4 to 6 people. The jets worked with just the push of a button. Other very nice features of the home included a large, sprawling living room, 4 large king beds that really accommodated us, and an air hockey table that we had some good fun with.
The location of the house was really nice. It was 15 minutes from Camelback Ski Mountain, so it was easy to get to the mountain for our 2 days of skiing. And it was close to some very good restaurants. Our favorite one was the Barley Creek Brewing Company. The house was located off the beaten track, so it was nice and quiet. Very bucolic, which we liked. And even though there was a lot of snow on the ground, and it was hard to make out the lake, I could easily tell that if we had been staying there during the spring , summer, or fall, we would have had a beautiful view of the lake. I think I'll be going back again in the summer. Several times when we walked outside of the house (2 or more times) we saw deer no more than 10 yards aways from the front door. I've seen a lot of deer in my life, but never so close. That was really neat!
The owners quickly addressed all of my questions before I arrived at the house. They were very helpful and very amenable.
I obviously give big kudo's to this house. If your criteria and desired amenities for searching for a rental house are similar to mine, I think this one should definitely be on your list.
Went there over 4th of July with a group of 8 friends and their kids. From the beginning John and Rita were great. Any questions I had were answered very quickly. The house was awesome - large, spacious, and very clean. We loved the downstairs game room with pool table and air hockey. Loved hanging out in the backyard, grilling, and had our own private lake access complete with row boat and paddle boat. We are already making plans to stay here again in the future!
The house showed very well. The lake was wonderful. The location...JUST perfect. So close to everything. Quiet neighborhood. The deer visited every day with their families !! BEDS comfortable....LARGE bathrooms were great... VERY clean and updated. Having a washer/dryer was a plus !! Charcoal grill and picnic table made eating outside very cozy. 2 decks to enjoy. Baskets full of brochures for food and entertainment. John and I had spoke on the phone a few times and I honestly felt like we were family when hanging up the phone. We would come back again....Thank you John and Rita <3
We stay the Lake front for a week before July 4th holiday. This house is clean, well maintained and fully equipped. The Owner John and Rita always respond to our questions quickly and super supportive.
I would recommend to friend if they are looking for a nice, serene place to get away from busy city life.
For adults, we enjoy to stay in the sun room reading books watching videos from iPAD (providing Wi-Fi also a great feature we love).
Our 6 year old is enjoy the BBQ with us at lawn area, playing badminton, riding paddle boat, sitting in front of the lake enjoying his snack, seeing deer visiting the property, playing at game room.
We also went to the Camelbeach Waterpark which is 15 minutes away from the house. We all had a great time in the water park as well.
The supermarket is 15 minutes away also, so it is easy to buy groceries.
For our busy city life, we could even spend whole week just staying in this house without going out.
Thank you for John and Rita to let us staying in your lakefront house.
Nice location, near the water, spacious yard with area for a nice fire under the stars
Our group of 10 truly had a wonderful time at the Emerald Lake house, with plenty of room for all. The home was spotlessly clean when we arrived; the king beds were super-comfy, and the bathrooms were very spacious. We especially liked how the lower level was well-suited for our young adult children and the upper level was a good space for the rest of us. We especially enjoyed the upper level sunroom, right off the kitchen, which is light and bright and looks to the backyard.
Outside, the backyard offers a firepit, a grassy yard area (with local wildlife), and the lake access was great for our dog. We only used the boats once as it's tricky getting them in and out of the water, but the lake is lovely and quiet. The tennis courts and swimming pool are a short walk away, and we enjoyed walking and biking on the low-traffic roads which go around the lake during our stay.
The kitchen was equipped with all the pots, pans, utensils, etc that we needed. The central a/c was much appreciated, as the weather during our stay was warm and humid. John and Rita were a pleasure to deal with and gave us excellent service before, during, and after our stay.
We were on the go a lot, and highly recommend Inti, a fabulous Peruvian restaurant, and Sweet Creams Cafe, both in E Stroudsburg.
Some from among our group drove to Knoebels (about an hour and a half) one day, and to Lake Waullenpaupack for water skiing and tubing on another day, and horse-back riding in Mt Pocono as well. Walmart etc is only about ten minutes from the house, and we purchased firewood from a landscaper in Long Pond near 940 and Heath Road.
Overall we had a very relaxing week and enjoyed the amenities this home has to offer!
