About Michael and Dana Jones

I am an Exercise Physiologist and my wife, Dana, is a court reporter. We have a daughter named Michelina!

Why Michael and Dana Jones chose Poconos

We love everything about the house and the area...love being so close to the lake, beach, pool and ski resorts!

What makes this chalet unique

We feel like our home is one of the 'coziest' we have been in! Between the stone fireplace, high ceilings and wooded lot, it can't get any better!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed at this beautiful, hidden chalet, for a lovely, brisk fall evening. The ambiance was perfect allowing the moonlight to glean in through the big windows that enhanced the already warm, inviting atmosphere of the home's interior. The community is centrally located to many of the Poconos sites and has a wonderful "homey" feel to it. The neighbors were delightful, pleasant, and friendly. The owner had excellent communication throughout the whole process, which was a breath of fresh mountain air. I would highly recommend staying here and will be back if I find the need to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city and take in the natural beauty of the mountains.mountains.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. Overall, we had no complaints. Everything functioned well. The layout was very appropriate for our group of friends who loves to hang out, chat, and play games. It was in the middle of nowhere (which is fine if that's what you are expecting). You really have to plan going to the store during the day. Also, there were not many close options as far as eating out went.

Make sure you note that the house is for 10 people but you are only given 8 wristbands to access the lake/pool.

We would definitely recommend staying here for a very relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review, Simon! We look forward to having you again. Just to clear a few things up and for the benefit of our future guests, I wanted to address a few of the things mentioned. As far as options to "eat out" are concerned, a quick Google search shows that there are no less than 18 different places the eat within about 5 miles of the entrance of our community. About 8 of these are within 2 miles. There are 10 bar/restaurants, 4 pizzerias, 2 Chinese restaurants, and 2 delis. Concerning house supplies/shopping, there is a little mom and pop grocery store 5 minutes away-open 10am-6pm, and another larger, chain type grocery store about 8 miles away, with expanded hours. There is also a well stocked Dollar General right outside of the entrance to our community. As far as passes to use amenities are concerned, we mention that both on our listing and in the rental agreement, so we assume our guests are aware at the time of booking. If any future guest has any questions about local attractions, businesses(restaurants, etc...), or even how to possibly obtain more bands, just call us or email during your stay, we would be happy to help!
