Overview

Poconos Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Comfortable rustic lake front chalet, a three bedroom vacation home right on Big Bass Lake. This pristine wooded community is located at the top of the Pocono Mountains. There are lake views from the living room, dining area and kitchen. The first floor recreation area includes air hockey and ping pong tables, cable TV and a scenic view of lake.

The lake is brimming with fish and renowned for its Big Mouth Bass. Our huge wrap-around deck allows for leisurely dining or just absorbing the scenic views of the lake and the mountains. This beautiful mountain home has just undergone a major renovation and gives a beautiful blend of the old and the new.

There are fully equipped playgrounds, picnic areas, six Laykoid tennis courts, basketball courts, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, ski slope with T-Bar Lift, tubing hill, fitness center, sauna and game room.

The property was better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean and very well maintained. We enjoyed the large deck with great views of the lake. The row boat was fun. The grill was high quality and we loved cooking on it. If you are looking for a quality place to stay to relax and enjoy don't pass this one by. The owner Don was great to deal with and everything went smoothly. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this home!!!

My family (myself, husband and three children-14,12 and 10) stayed for a week in August. The home is very clean and well maintained. All cooking, plates, utensils, etc. supplies are there. We had plenty of room and enjoyed the lower level for the kids (small ping pong table plus an air hockey table. A TV is also on the lower level-although limited channels compared with the LR TV).

The deck has a fabulous view of the lake! Adirondack chairs, plastic chairs, a grill and a picnic table are on the large deck. Additional picnic table in yard closer to lake. The view of the lake is also fabulous from the dining and living room. Aside from the lake, the home is set among trees so it's private and beautiful! We never saw/heard any neighbors (house is set back only one neighbor you would possibly see anyway). Every morning I walked and it was so quiet and lovely! Little to no traffic except for the wild turkeys I saw daily. There is a rowboat available for your use. In addition we brought an inflatable boat so we had something extra-we used it in the area closer to the dock but ventured out across the lake in search of fish in the row boat. Two fishing poles are in the home to use. We caught many fish every day! All were catch and release but had a fabulous time trying to catch a "whopper".

You can NOT swim in the lake off the dock (it's very "lake weedy" you would not want to) the community does have a beach area where you can swim (we did not go but it's at the main entrance). There is also a pool available at the community for an additional daily cost but we did not go--too busy enjoying the home, playing board games, fishing, boating! The WIFI worked well, cell reception was decent and TV in LR had numerous channels. The grocery store was 10mins away (Shoprite-Daleville--also had several other stores, restaurants in the plaza if needed).

We went to Camelback Beach Waterpark (25mins) one day and Jim Thorpe and Numer 9 coal mine tour(about 50mins) another.

We ordered the linen service for an extra $35 otherwise plan to bring your own sheets--towels (beach, bath and kitchen) must be brought with you.

This house was a dream! It's modern yet cozy-nicely decorated and everything worked perfectly! I miss it everyday and will definitely return soon! If you are considering a lake home vacation in the Poconos, I highly recommend this home!

Five Star Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Just spent two weeks at this property at Big Bass Lake and I can't say enough good things. The house was in spectacular condition, providing a warm, inviting, clean and comfortable place to call home while at BBL. We had a great family vacation, caught a ton a fish and are missing this place every day. I highly recommend the Moutain Lakefront Chalet!

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property was better than advertised. It is warm and inviting with great attention to detail. We enjoyed the row boat, fishing off the dock, watching turkey and deer walk in yard and looking for frogs. The community is top notch!! We highly recommend this property. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and fast to respond through the entire rental process. Thanks for the memories!!!

What a Fun Time for the Family!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a relaxing lake front view. Plenty of room for the 3 kids to play down stairs and not interrupt my wife and I while trying to relax. The new kitchen is perfect for cooking big meals. The house is a quick drive from the shopping center so after picking up a few things, we use both the kitchen and outdoor grill to prepare a fabulous meal. My nephew and I untied the boat and went fishing out on the lake. An eagle even flew over head attempting to swoop fish out of the lake. Later in the weekend we made time to visit the Olympic size pool, and visit the near by breakfast buffet. Just sitting in the living room at night and watching movies on the flat panel tv above the fire place was great too. What a great weekend for my family and I to talk about.

Wonderful Summer Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for the beautiful chalet. We had a great time. The view of the lake was very peaceful and we loved fishing in the rowboat. The kids loved the air hockey table. We will come back next year.
