About Christine and Steve

Since my son was very young, we rented houses throughout the Poconos for skiing. They were some of the best memories of our lives and we cherished the day that we could own a home of our own. Now we would like to share that world with you so that you may create wonderful memories with your family.

Christine and Steve purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Christine and Steve chose Poconos

The Poconos has always been a refreshing vacation spot, with even more activities than the Jersey shore. Towamensing Trails, near Big Boulder/Lake Harmony, has wonderful amenities for adults and children. The beach area is large and the lake is stocked with trout and very clean. Many people enjoy the large swimming pool and there is a special pool just for the kids. The community is close to Big Boulder, Pocono Raceway, many lakes and parks, golf courses, shopping, antiquing, horsebacking riding, and hiking and biking trails. We enjoy boating, so we make use of the community lake and nearby Beltzville State Park.

What makes this chalet unique

You will find all the comforts of home and numerous personal decorative features in the spirit of country living.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Feels like you just came home from a long week at work and are ready to put your feet up and "veg". Everytime we thought Christine missed something, we found it within five minutes. Everything you could need. Wonderful comfy beds (already made up when we got there), towels, hair dryer and everything you could need in the kitchen. Christine is always just a phone call away to answer any questions. Best part was the multiple seating areas in the livingroom. We went there with my sister and her husband for Superbowl weekend and had plenty of comfortable places to sit and watch the game.

Thank you for everything! We will definately be back.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was just the vacation spot that we were looking for. The house was comfortable and accommodating for our family four and our two small dogs. We especially enjoyed the back deck and view of the trees and wildlife every morning, and the community provided the perfect blend of activity and peacefulness. There were plenty of areas to walk the dogs, stroll around or ride our bikes withing the neighborhood, and we were close enough to several mountain hiking trails to take on some higher adventure. The beach and lakefront areas were inviting and uncrowded on the weekdays.

The kitchen was well-stocked and organized with everything that we needed to prepare and eat family meals. The stacked washer and dryer came in handy throughout the week. The master bathroom has a very large hot tub and plenty of towels provided. The owner is very easy to deal with and seems to go the extra mile to ensure that her renters have everything that they need, including information about restaurants and shopping. She was only a text message away when a question arose about the wifi password. We would definitely go back if the timing works out next year.

Perfect Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wanda's Dream is a perfect location for a girls retreat!! My close friends and I plan a long weekend getaway every year and this trip was certainly one of our favorites! I was extremely impressed with how much Christine went out of her way to make sure that we had all the information we needed for our stay. She provided us with information concerning locations of shopping centers, activities, popular spots- along with directions, restaurant suggestions and so much more! All this information certainly contributed to our trip being such a success... so a HUGE thank you to Christine!

When arriving the home was spotless. There was one issue with the front rugs having a very strong odor however that was easily explained by the carpets just being cleaned and the extremely humid weather. We were able to quickly remedy that with products available in the home and the odor was gone in a day. Other than that one small hiccup... the home was perfect. It had everything we needed. Our favorite part was the quiet back deck where we able to enjoy our morning coffee while visiting with a large number of deers.

It was the perfect home for a relaxing trip! My Mom has already a suggested a Mother/Daughter get away to the Poconos... so we will most likely be back! Thank you!

Owner's Response: To Carrie and friends: It gave me joy to know that our home helped make your special time together a good experience and mostly, that you had lots of fun. Hope you had a chance to savor some of the great activities that the Poconos has. I know that you travelled a great distance, and I am honored that you chose our home above all others. Glad that you enjoyed the deck and the plentiful deer that wander by. Please feel free to return at any time. You are always welcome. - Christine

My home away from home...honestly.

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about Wandasdream...other than the fact that it has become my home away from home and the owner Ms. Christine Robertson has become my friend. We started renting from Ms. Robertson over 4 years ago and will continue to do so any time we visit the Pocono Mountains. This last visit we stayed for Thanksgiving. The home was clean as usual, stacked with games and movies. The owner will also be available for you and attend to your needs and questions. In the area we enjoyed our favorite town...Jim Thorpe. We finally got to visit the Asa Packer Mansion, took the train ride and of course visited the shops. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who is interested in having a safe and enjoyable time.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Wanda's Dream for Christmas this year for 5 days. My husband, two older children and buddy the family dog wanted to go away this year for Christmas and we couldn't have picked a more warm and inviting place to go. Christine had the place looking so festive for the Christmas holiday. She even put up a Christmas tree for my family to enjoy on Christmas morning! My daughter and I always make Christmas cookies for the holidays and boy did we bake a lot of cookies. The kitchen was completely filled with the items we would need to accomplish that joyful task. Even though it was exceptionally warm this year, we stilled enjoyed the wood burning fire place every night. Every single day, almost at any given time, you could look out the window and see several deer and wild turkeys among the squirrels and chipmunks. Thankfully, no bear! The house was clean and cozy and full of everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the enormous jacuzzi upstairs as well. I highly recommend that you stay here if you're looking for a place to stay. It really was our home away from home! Thank you Christine for everything! Hope you enjoyed the cookies!
