About Neel or Mary Thompson

We are both retired and have owned the home in the Poconos since 2005. We have six sons, all married, and have sixteen grandchildren. The house has been a great place for family gatherings over the years and has also been a terrific vacation rental property. We live about an hour away in Worcester, Pa.

Neel or Mary Thompson purchased this house in 2005

Why Neel or Mary Thompson chose Lake Harmony Area

The home is a single and is located a short walk away from Big Boulder Ski Area. We belong to the Lake Mountain Club which allows our tenants to use the beach, heated pool, boat rentals, etc. in the Summer. There is a room with a sunken hot tub and gas fireplace with a great view of Big Boulder and Big Boulder lake. The deck has been expanded and has an awning with spectacular views. Three separate levels, each with it's own bath makes the home an excellent choice for larger groups or two or three families.

We stayed in this beautiful home for the weekend; It was 2 families - 4 adults and 6 teenage boys. The house was perfect for us! The boys immediately went snowboarding on Friday night when we arrived-and since it was REALLY cold, they really enjoyed the hot tub when they returned to the house. We had a wonderful dinner, and a family game night playing pool, shuffleboard and foosball. Not a late night, since Saturday was another full day of snowboarding, while the adults went hiking and just enjoyed the home. The bedrooms were all really comfortable, and since we were cooking dinners, we really appreciated how well the kitchen was stocked. We had a question on one of the fireplaces-and Mary and Neel were immediately available to solve our problem. We will be back- a perfect weekend!!!!!

Wonderful Christmas Family Vacay !

  • 5 of 5

We just spent Christmas week at this property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay . We were 3 generations of family and the house was so comfortable and cosy for all of us, even with the snowy and cold conditions outside we were comfy and happy inside : ) . The house is exactly as depicted in the pictures and the layout is really ideal for a big group as the 3 floors provide everyone with their own space, especially as there are full bathrooms on every floor and TVs in all of the rooms . The house seems very new and was immaculately clean when we arrived which we really appreciated particularly as we had a young baby with us . All beds and furniture were really comfortable and we had some great evening dinners around the large dining room table and sitting around in the living room chilling out with a glass of wine ! We had stayed in the Laurelwoods development at Big Boulder previously and we returned as we just love the convenience of the development, being right beside big boulder skiing and tubing - we had some fun days on the slopes and it makes things so easy when you can get home in 2 minutes in your car or 5 minutes by foot. The managers and owners were extremely friendly and considerate and even put up a Christmas tree and other festive decorations for our stay -- which we really appreciated given that we have small kids who love the Christmas season. The only thing we didn't really use was the hot tub given that we have small children it was too dangerous and therefore that space was wasted on us. It would have been probably easier for us if this room had a door also, as we couldn't lock our curious toddler out of that room so had to be very vigilant that he didn't go near it at all times. The kitchen was really well equipped for a rental house and we were able to make a full Christmas dinner plus everything was spotlessly clean and not broken or old which was nice as we have stayed in rental houses before where this was not the case. All in all we loved our stay here and would come back again for all of the positive reasons stated above !

Awesome home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic! We had a large group ( 10 in all ) stay for a week in July 2012 and there was plenty of room. It has all of the comforts of home, super clean and well maintained. The game room, jacuzzi and back yard gave us plenty to do. The kitchen was well equipped and having a BBQ grill in the yard was great. We loved having our morning coffee on the deck and just relaxing there in the evening as well. We missed being allowed to have a fire in the fire pit but understand the community rule that banned them. Having 12 passes to the Lake club was also a plus. One of the nicest homes we've ever had the pleasure to rent in the Poconos. I can't say enough how enjoyable and comfortable this home is.We'll definitely come back again. We're already talking about possibly renting in the winter too!

Top of the Line!

When everything that you could desire in a ski resort vacation home is provided, it is hard to know where to start with recommending it to other ski and snow enthusiasts. This home just makes you want to brag to everyone who will listen about how perfectly wonderful “your ski rental home” is equipped.

As you enter the home you are greeted by a cathedral entryway with coat hooks for all your winter ski wear. The first level has a huge open floor plan with a combined living room and dining area which allows you the luxury of a nice family dinner and you can still peek at the “big game” on the 50” flat panel television. The gas fireplace adds cozy warmth to this family gathering area. The nice size kitchen with all accoutrements compliments the floor plan. The excellent use of space provides for the master bedroom complete with private bath equipped with a soaking tub and separate glass enclosed shower. The additional fireplace in the master suite heightens the luxury appeal and the adjacent hot tub area is top of the line.

Two bed rooms and a bath on the second level provide great sleeping area and are kept toasty on those cold nights by the warmth from the two fireplaces on the first level.

The lower level boast two more bedroom with an oversized “playroom” sporting a full size pool table and shuffle boards along with an additional sofa filled lounge area and television which can be great for the kids to watch movies or play video games.

Did I mention that the house is located about 50 yards from the Big Boulder parking lot. Talk about convenience, this ski vacation home has it all and can only be described as superb !

This townhome has it all!

  • 5 of 5

My family and extended family have been coming to the poconos for several years and have stayed in many places. This is the only place for us now, this will be our 4th year in this home, we love the indoor hot tub with the two-way gas fireplace (one side faces the hot tub the other side faces the master suite, ahhh!) The games in the lower level are great for the kids and the kitchen and living area with its own cathedral/corner gas fireplace is wonderful too. I really can't say enough about how comfortable this home is, we love it!
