Blakeslee House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 8

Picture a place where children can play safely in their neighborhood, where people you don’t know, say 'hello,' and where once you pass through the entry gates of your vacation home, you are greeted by postcard views of the Pocono Mountains, and the Lake House.

Whether a lover of fine wine, an antique buyer, a zip liner, a ski enthusiast, a chance taker at the slots, a Nascar enthusiast, or, oh yes, a horse lover, and so many more activities, the Pocono Mountains will make that vision a reality.

Situated on Lake Sinca, this well-appointed home is located in the private community of Greenwood Acres, in the Lake Harmony area of Blakeslee, Pennsylvania. It is a 2 story, 2100 square foot lake-front home that has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A group of up to 8 persons can very comfortably occupy this home. Save money by booking by the week!

Located on the 1st floor of our home is the great room that has a gas fireplace and a 50' LCD TV with a DVD player. The modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, spacious countertops and a center island with seating, and is perfect for cooking. The kitchen is fully equipped with all basic cookware, dishware including a microwave, induction stove, coffee maker, blender and a toaster. Off the kitchen is a formal dining room. Located on the 2nd floor are 3 bedrooms which all have queen-sized beds. The den on the 1st floor has a pull-out queen sized bed also. High-speed wireless internet is available. Out back, dine al fresco on our spacious deck, enjoy boating on the lake, or sunbath or swim to your hearts content.

In the summer enjoy the water parks, or fish from our fully stocked fishing lake. For those race fans, Pocono Raceway is a stone's throw away. In the winter, ski Jack Frost/Big Boulder which is 8 minutes or Camelback Mountain for a little more of a challenge and is a convenient 15 minutes’ drive. You can also enjoy antique or outlet shopping, also within a convenient driving distance.

What guests have said: 'You have a beautiful home - we had a great time!' 'Thank you for the use of your lovely home. We had such a very nice time there.' '... your house is so close to skiing.'

Fun!: The Lake House overlooks Lake Sinca, conveniently situated between Jack Frost/Big Boulder and Camelback ski areas, where you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing in the winter. In summer, Camelback becomes Camel beach--an award winning water park with many amazing water rides. Nearby activities include several golf courses (including Jack Frost National, now open), miniature golf, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, horseback riding, antiquing, The Crossings Outlets, Hickory Run State Park, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, Jim Thorpe, Lake Harmony, Split Rock, Pocono Raceway as well as Pocono Mountain Festivals. If you want to try your hand at the tables or slots, we are approx. 20 miles from Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs’ casino. Our private, secure, four season community offers a lake with a private beach. The lake is stocked with fish (note: license required). Non-motorized boats only can be rented from one of the conveniently located rental shops minutes from the house. Guests are able to use row boat and/or paddle boat.

Housekeeping: Prior to your rental, our housekeeper will prepare the house to best accommodate your needs with freshly changed linens, however, please bring your own towels.

Note: We have a 2 night minimum rental.

More guests comments...

'I just wanted to say Thank You for allowing me to rent your home this weekend (6/29-7/1). It was absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for. It is conveniently located near so many things in the Poconos (not to mention Wawa and Dunkin Donuts) -- I think that is a huge selling point as well. It is secluded and definitely gives you peace and quiet, which we all need from time to time. The lake out back and the beach right next door was incredible.'

Why Ernest chose Lake Harmony Area

We chose this location because of its central location to all the wonderful amenities offered in Pocono Mountains. Blakeslee is also very convenient to most travel arteries, yet our location is often referred to by our guests as 'peaceful and private.' The fact that our vacation home is waterfront is a bonus.

What makes this house unique

Our vacation home is within walking distance to the beach area, yet it is very private.

Best weekend ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Im not the kind of person that leaves reviews but this one was just unfair not to write it.

It took us more than a week to find a house that was available for the Labor weekend but it was tottaly worth it... we loved how clean and well organized was the house, enjoy breakfast on the patio deck. My son LOVED having a playgound right next to the house at night it was a little chilly but the bonfire, wine and some marshmallow made the night.

Oh and how can i forget how nice was Janet with us, she answerd every single of my questions... she was just lovely.

We would definelly come back here next summer.

I wanted to surprise my husband for his birthday on 8/22/15 so I booked this lovely house to get a little RR. Well that was easy to do in this home, it was so peaceful and so relaxing. We loved waking up and looking out the window to see the beautiful view of the lake. The house is beautiful and the owner Janet was so helpful through out the whole process. My kids loved going out on the lake with the row & paddle boats provided by the owners. You will not have to drive far for anything yet the house is very private and peaceful. Just what most people need these days. We will be back again !!!!! Loved the area and the location and of course the house. Thank you so much Janet for making our stay so pleasant.

Great central location, several hiking trails nearby, camelbeach and horseback riding just a short drive away. The small lake is beautiful and the row boat makes it easy to enjoy. Kitchen was well stocked, beds were comfortable and the patio & firepit were lovely places to be.

What a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. We had a wonderful time in the Poconos. There are plenty of attractions around including a playground and little man-made beach nearby. Janet (the owner) was attentive and so accommodating. The house is clean, conveniently located, and in a lovely, quiet neighborhood.

A perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect lake house for a relaxing weekend away of the hustle and bustle of the city (only 1 hour 45 min drive from NYC). The house is beautiful, very well maintained, clean, and spacious- it sleeps 6 adults VERY comfortably (we were 3 couples, each got their own room with a room with a queen size bed, which was perfect). Super market, liqueur store, CVS and a Wawa convenience store are all a 3 min drive away. We also drove 10 min to the nearest Amish Farmers Market on Saturday. The lake is beautiful and feels very private although the swimming beach is just next door (which is perfect for families with kids and wasn't crowded at all). The house has a paddle boat and a row boat for the guests' disposal and they were also in great shape and served us very well. The kitchen is comfortable and well equipped and the back deck with the umbrella covered outside dining table and the large grill made our weekend dining experience even better. Janet (the owner) is super responsive (even late at night on Friday..) and provided great customer service and was very nice to us in general. I'd recommend this vacation house for anybody who wants some peace and quiet, to sit on a lazy chair looking at the lake (amazing sunsets can be seen from the middle of it, if you care to take the boat out ;)) or wants some safe space for the kids to enjoy a bit of nature. I'd also come back in a heartbeat! P.S. Don't forget to bring your own DVDs, and towels (for bathing, washing, hand towels for the bathrooms and kitchen and dish towels too ;))
