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.

Soooo relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

First we want to thank Christine for all the precise infos regarding commute and the stay. The place is spacious, cozy, very well built and relaxing. There is everything ready for your stay! Just grab a few logs and a pack of marshmallows. My parents where impressed with the kitchen, fully equipped, clean and practical. We had the master bedroom upstairs next to the bathroom with Tub, obviously!

Every day we had the pleasant surprise to watch Deers around the house! Christine gave us all infos for shopping, visiting and the best restaurants around.

Simply a great venue! Thank you Christine we ll be back!

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!

Our over all we will be back :)

Relaxing summer family vacation

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I booked this property for a week of relaxation in the Poconoes along with our 6 month old daughter and our dog. Upon arrival the house was spotless and we were pleased to have access to a fully stocked kitchen (in terms of cooking tools, plates and utensils). The master bedroom was large and spacious and the jacuzzi tub was great to use once our daughter went to bed. Our dog Nala enjoyed laying on the deck in the mornings watching the deer, or going on walks through the neighborhood and our daughter was equally fascinated by them and other wildlife. It happened to rain during part of the week so we spent some of the days inside watching movies and cooking. On the days with nicer weather we took our daughter and dog hiking on some beautiful local trails at Beltzerville state park- only a 25 min drive away. The only drawback is the house is located about 20-25 minutes from any major shopping, food and attractions, so be sure to stock up on anything you would need ahead of time. Christine was always available to answer any questions and the house had everything we needed to enjoy our family vacation. We cooked most of our dinners on the charcoal grill on the deck. The washer/dryer on site was an added bonus. We especially loved that it was pet friendly so we didn't have to leave our 4-legged family member behind.
