Just Perfect!

'Up the Lake' was built in 2008 with the vacation renter in mind...designed to meet your every need...for those that appreciate quality and don't want to settle for a sub-standard vacation experience. This completely furnished mountain chalet is located in The Hideout, a four star gated resort community less than two hours away from the tri-state area in the lake region of the Pocono Mountains.

Pack your bags and take a short drive up to this meticulously maintained three bedroom, three and a half bathroom retreat featuring 3300 square feet of living space on three floors with brand new everything! This home provides the ultimate setting for family and friends to enjoy their time together while making some great memories in the Poconos.

This home sleeps up to 10 people comfortably but is not recommended for large groups as a party place. The main living level has an open floor plan. The air-conditioned great room is tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished with vaulted ceilings, brilliant hardwood floors, a romantic gas fireplace and a 42' plasma HD television directly above the mantle. French doors open to a large cedar deck with a picnic table and a gas BBQ grill. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for your convenience and includes all the necessities. The adjacent dining area seats 8 plus another 3 at the breakfast island.

The air conditioned master bedroom suite, also on the first floor, is complete with a king sized log bed and log furniture, 42' plasma HD television and private bathroom with double sinks, shower and Jacuzzi bathtub. There is also a second bedroom containing two extra long twin beds with pillow top mattresses. A full bathroom is located directly across the hall. The air conditioned, oversized loft bedroom comprises the entire second floor. It has two queen beds, a full private bathroom and a quiet reading area looking over the great room below.

The lower level is the fun level. Down here you will find a spacious family room with comfortable chairs and cozy couches, and, oh yeah ... a 54' LCD HD television. What fun would a vacation home be without a game room? Yours comes complete with a pool table, foosball table and an air hockey table. There are also plenty of board games to choose from for interactive family fun. If you can't be without your laptop - bring it - this house has wireless internet as well.

Great chalet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at Up The Lake! The chalet was comfortable and spacious. It fit our families' needs, with kids and grandkids coming and going. The beach and pool was just a short drive from the property. Overall, it provided a great week of family relaxation.

A few couples joined my husband and I for a weekend in the Poconos to celebrate a birthday. Up the Lake was the perfect home for a relaxing and fun weekend! Rich was great to work with and very accommodating and the house was very clean and stocked with all the necessities one would want. There are plenty of beds for everyone and they were all very comfortable. The location is perfect - close to supermarkets, ski slopes, and a few restaurants. There's a large TV in both the upstairs and downstairs living rooms and the game room is awesome. We loved our stay at Up the Lake and look forward to doing it again next year!

BEAUTIFUL HOME - and perfect Christmas stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I flew in on Christmas eve to spend the holidays back east with his family and from the moment we stepped in to this beautiful home, we WERE home! Rich had decorated for Christmas with a beautiful tree and Christmas décor all around and it was completely homey, warm and welcoming. My husband's teenage sons LOVED the game room, TV's all around and WiFi. There was tons of room with all the bedrooms and extra sleeping space and ALL of the beds were amazingly comfortable. The kitchen had all you needed to make full meals and serve them - we couldn't have asked for more. The showers had incredible water pressure and the Jacuzzi tub in the master bath was INCREDIBLE! Rich was super responsive by email or text if we had any questions, and really went out of his way to make sure we had all we needed.

The pictures do NOT do this beautiful home justice - you won't be disappointed staying here - it truly feels like home. Thanks again for all you did, Rich - we'll definitely be staying here again!

Excellent newer property. Large rooms, clean and very well maintained. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay July 2016!! Rented three homes for a family reunion and this one was by far the best. Large spacious rooms, one bedroom had enough space for setting up two pack & plays with room to spare. This was our chosen house for congregating at night. Kids put to bed upstairs, group could comfortably relax on main floor and 'late-nighters' playing in game room and living area down stairs didn't have to worry about waking up kids upstairs. Relaxing in adirondack chairs or sitting at picnic table on deck to unwind from day truly gave you a resort 'away-from-it-all' feeling. The house was clean and perfectly set up - Rich could not be more accommodating even gave us a walk through on arrival testing TV's to show operation! I strongly recommend this house as it is incredibly maintained. Everyone I asked in our group about the house had same comments - 5 star. We didn't want to leave.

Much Needed Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came here for our anniversary weekend. Rich was there upon arrival to give us a tour and answer any questions. We were even able to check-in earlier and check-out later and as it was a holiday weekend so this was very helpful. The house was exactly like the pictures. We loved the game room!! We are looking forward to staying again possibly with the rest of our family or friends. My husband and I agreed that it was one of the most relaxing weekends we have ever had away from our hectic daily lives. Thank you so much!
