About Bill Waite

Vicky and I live in Bucks County, PA. We both grew up in New Jersey. We operate our own small publishing business. And, getting away to mountains is something we enjoy. A great stress releaser.

Bill Waite purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Bill Waite chose Pocono Lake

Our home is a true unique mountain home. It's decorated with snow shoes, ski's, a sled, ice skates on the wall. And, the comforters and bed sheets are designed for the cabin feel. It's situated in very peaceful location yet close to everything. A short walk to the lake and sandy beaches or ski in the winter right out the backyard! A true place you will always remember. And, we keep it up like new because we vacation there too.

What makes this chalet unique

If you love the outdoors and wildlife, you will love our place. Nestled in between lightly wooded lot, the upper deck off the master bedroom feels like a treehouse. And, a fit pit in rear is great for those cold fall nights or to warm up while skiing. Our property is located on ski hill in community.

We had a wonderful visit here. The beach for the lake is right down the street. Grocery store and restaurants are convenient. The owner was very responsive to any of our questions. Thanks!

Perfect Quick Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I think my review will only solidy all the other reviews on this property! What else can I say but my stay at this property was a great time! Literally all you need to bring is your food. I brought other tiems I thought I may need but when I got there I saw the place was fully stocked. So they really do think of everything you will need to make it feel like you are right at home.The place is very clean and comfortable! We didn't venture out as we really just wanted to get away and debrief from all the hustle and bustle of the city life. So we loved the fact that the property has a pool table as well as other things to do like puzzles (which we put one together) cards, dominoes etc.We enjoyed our stay we are already looking to go back next month for my birthday! I had to give the owner a call to help with finding the office and he gladly gave directions and stayed on the phone with me. As well as answered any questions I had before we arrived. You won't regret renting this property in fact if you've clicked on the link to view no need to look any further, this is the one!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

My experience was great. If I had to rate it I would give it a 10/10. My 4 friends and I enjoyed the place and the open space and especially the location. The home was extremely cozy and entirely clean. We had zero complaints. I would definitely recommend this place and couldn't imagine a more relaxing atmosphere if we stayed somewhere else. (correction: our stay was in august of 2014)

Great Home. Great Location. Great Value

  • 4 of 5

For us the Poconos mean family time skiing on the weekends, eating crock-pot meals afterwards and an evening of board games. This property was perfect for all three. We had ample space to spend time together either in front of the fire or for a game of pool. The location is perfectly situated enabling us to hit several of the Poconos ski resorts. Within the Locust Lake Community, the property is perfectly located near the large lake and the chalet community center. The back deck overlooks a common ski and sledding hill, it must be lovely in the summer to barbeque and hangout. I can understand why this is a desirable location year round.

We found the property very clean. The fact that the owner's provided bed linens made it very convenient. The property owner's were lovely to work with and the entire experience was wonderful. The only reason for 4 stars versus 5 was the absence of a dishwasher. I take some accountability because I did not notice it's absence from the listing or rental agreement. It's been many years since I've done all the dishes by hand. At the end of the day, it really did not effect our family retreat. I would recommend this property to friends.

Great experience! Had a great time there!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the property is amazing. Tucked away in a quiet area, the house is surrounded by trees and nature. Inside you'll be pleased to find the place to be a great getaway experience. There is a pool table which was extremely fun to use. The living room, dining area and kitchen are all cozy and we felt at home right away. Everything was spotless and clean. The bedrooms were wonderful.

All I can say is that I am very fortunate for this wonderful experience. The owner was quick to respond to questions, and was very helpful. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.
