About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 -8) with children.

New bathrooms; bedroom furniture and kitchen recently redone.

Winter: We are between three great ski resorts: Camel back, Big Boulder and Jack Frost only minutes away. With the new addition of the sun room, you can enjoy the view rain, snow or shine and see the babbling brook to relax in the cozy chairs and leave your troubles behind.

Summer: Weekly rentals from Sunday to Sunday. Just 200 feet to beach - bring your beach chairs and suntan lotion for a relaxing time. Many water parks around us. Kalahari indoor water park is 5 miles away. 10 miles from Camel beach Mountain Water park Mountain Adventures. Great fun for the entire family.

The stream in the backyard is a great experience for youngsters. We own the property next to ours and include a fishing dock, plus to the right is a community wet land.

Just converted a bedroom to bunk beds to be used by children under 100lbs see photo - so bring the kids. Also, new queen size rustic furniture in master bedroom, new dresser in middle bedroom and refinished both bathrooms(2017). Come relax in our heated Sun Porch, see some animals and experience cooking in our new kitchen. Prefer you call me if interested. A lease agreement needs to be signed and returned. Please allow 2 weeks to process paperwork.

Easy commute from DE, NY and NJ. There is a steep driveway so 4 wheel vehicles are recommended in the winter months. And only can accommodate 2 cars.

Who cares what the weather is outside? During the Fall of 2009, we added a 2-story addition to the backyard of our house. The lower level (three season room) has a cozy sitting area. The upper level sun room includes a dining area and conversation corner that will permit year around viewing of lake, stream and wildlife. Our house is certified by the National Wildlife Federation so many animals pass bye.

Located between two lakes with a stream and a wonderful extremely private setting. Lake at top of driveway feeds into our stream in the back yard and then into the cove which feeds into the largest lake. Thus, we call our home "Tween the Lakes. Depending on the rain fall, the cove water level will be affected.

Only a few steps to one lake containing a beach,& playground. Other beach is about 2 miles away.

Swing/bench in back yard near stream overlooking the largest lake in Emerald Lakes. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath offers a furnished family room w/ping pong table, air hockey, and dart board. Cathedral ceilings, wood burning fireplace, (need to provide your own fire wood) and a modern fully equipped kitchen. Stove, washer and dryer all new. Decks from master bedroom and from sun porch. Air conditioning in master bedroom in summer months. Ceiling fans in other bedrooms.

Location is a short drive to most Pocono activities, including Crossing shopping outlets, Pocono Raceway (NASCAR Races), Kalahari, Camel-beach water park, Camel-back, Big Boulder and Jack Frost, Mt. Pocono Golf Course, Mount Airy Casino Lodge, golfing, and other ski and golf facilities.

Why Loretta W. Schneider chose Long Pond

Community is a residential one and has many amenities to offer. Easy to get to from NY, NJ and DE. There is a security agency and community watch program.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy to see wildlife and with having a stream in the backyard, animals cross our property so we see a wide variety. Now with the newly furnished sun porch you can watch the animals year round.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found the home and all is in order- a little electronic piece dangling from the air hockey table-doesn't seem to effect anything.

So you neglected to say how enchanting your home is-the backyard is amazing-just so beautiful and I must use the word enchanting again.

We will take care-just wanted you to know all is well.

My family and I have been renting this property since before my son was born (he is now 17) and we have never been disappointed. If you want to stay somewhere that reminds you of home with lots of pluses, this is the place for you. This property is beautifully kept, there are always new additions each year we go and we don't want to leave when our time is up! The owners are fabulous and have thought of everything that will make your vacation stay an awesome experience. And no I wasn't paid to write this review - just asked and could fill a book of all the pleasant memories that we have from our vacations here over the years. Don't believe me - check it out for yourself - you won't be sorry!!!!!!!!

House on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We are renting his house in the Summer for 6 or 7 years already and plan to rent this Summer again. It became our second home! We usually rent this house for 4-5 weeks to go away from New York City, spend time with our kids and enjoy the nature. The house is big enough for 8 people or two families. Usually, we rent this house with our friends who also have two kids and we always have a great time there! The house is very clean, well maintained, and the kitchen is very good equipped. It has EVERYTHING (it is important if you stay there for a month or so). Our favorite room is a 'sun' room (3 sides window room) where you can observe beautiful yard, lake and watch wild animals and birds, and specially deers. Almost every morning you can see deers on the yard and we always enjoy to watch them (baby deers are sooo cute!). The way the house is located , you can't see your neighbors and you feel like you're really out in the middle of the nature. The house is located on two lakes and it is close to casino, outlet, and Camelbeach waterpark/ski resort (driving distance, but not too far).

The owners are always helpful and really easy to work with. They keep the house beautiful and fully stocked. As always, thank you, Jim and Loretta!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Your house was so relaxing. We loved sitting by the fire while it snowed, watching the deer in the backyard and sitting in the hot tub after a long day of skiing and sledding.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for a week in August. It was a wonderful retreat from the heat of the City. The house is located just across the lake where we spent most of the time. It is spacious, clean and comfortable. I would love to come back next summer. I would recommend this property to the friends and relatives. The listing photos accurately reflected house's appearance and amenities. Thank you, Jim and Loretta!

Gorgeous retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the owners Jim and Loretta were so easy to work with and accommodating to us and our travel schedule! The house is quite large, very clean and well maintained. The yard expansive property is BEAUTIFUL - very picturesque! We had an amazing weekend, filled with sunshine, BBQs, touch football and lots of laughter! And it's only two hours away from NYC!

We will definitely be renting again! Thanks Jim and Loretta!
