About Nick and Jill Frezza

Jill and I live in New Jersey, have 2 kids and have been married for 26 years. We believe vacations are precious and want you to stay at a 'home' not just some vacation house.

Nick and Jill Frezza purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Nick and Jill Frezza chose Poconos

We've owned this house since 2008 and we've tried to make it a home away from home. There is something about this house that just makes you kick back. I don't know if it's the style, the beachy-country feel or what...I'm not sure. It's just that way. Our other house(check out HomeAway #3499507) has a completely different feel to it.

What makes this chalet unique

Location, Location, Location. Whether it's boats in the summer or just not having houses in your back yard have a house on the lake makes all the difference.

A perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect way to spend our 18th anniversary. Total peace and quiet. We should warn you that the lake can hypnotize you and make you not want to go back to work!

Everything we needed was there and we were completely comfortable. We had a blast paddling the kayak around and our dogs were fascinated by the ducks and geese and loved wading in the clear, clean water. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises over the lake and evenings by the fire.

The owners were warm, welcoming, and responded promptly to all email inquiries. They shared photos that gave a complete view of the property and all amenities. So it was an easy decision to choose this rental.

I'd highly recommend this wonderful property to family and friends. Don't forget to check out the nearby Tobyhanna State Park as it is one of the nicest state parks we have seen.

Wonderful stay as always

  • 5 of 5

Had such a great time at this wonderful property. My friends and I have been coming here for the past few years and it's always an enjoyable stay. The house is cozy, the lake is beautiful, and nothing beats sitting by the outdoor fire pit and enjoying the peaceful outdoors. The property is always extremely clean and well-maintained, and the owners have never been anything but very accommodating. We look forward to coming back next year!

very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with family for a weekend. It is not often happens with rental properties, when everything is great, from location to amenities. House had everything for us to enjoy our stay, from multiple tvs and strong wi fi, to variety of boats and nicely appointed outdoor area. Even though we had no luck with the weather that weekend, we still had a great time thanks to outdoor sauna unit. The owner was very fast to respond during our booking process, so overall we give it a five stars!

It is often hard to book a vacation spot based on just pictures so it is often a leap of faith...this place did not disappoint! Everything was immaculate and exactly as described. The deck and other outside amenities were awesome as well and we had a perfect stay. Once we discovered the right lure/bait and spots on the lake, we even had a successful fishing trip!
