About Sally L
A native of Chicago and now resident of Central New Jersey, I enjoy spending time in Arrowhead Lake with my children, who love to ski & swim as well as hike in some of the spectacular nearby state parks. It's also a great spot for a girls' or couple's weekend. I own two properties in Arrowhead Lake, and I take great pride in keeping them as clean and comfortable as possible for my guests.
Sally L purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Sally L chose Pocono Lake
This home appealed to me because it had great 'bones,' and because the property is heavily treed and feels very private.
What makes this Cottage unique
The home has lots of beautiful Andersen windows and a French door leading to the very private rear deck. The house is set back from the road, making it feel secluded. I added recessed lighting in the kitchen and living room in 2011, wallpapered the kitchen while living here as a refugee from Hurricane Sandy (I reside in NJ), added new carpeting throughout in June 2015, and continue to make improvements as the budget allows!

Nice rental - great layout, all amenities, quiet and safe - highly recommended!
This was a last minute rental due to the storm and the owner was great on making our stay comfortable. The home is as described, clean, and in a safe location. Many amenities and home is in a quiet area - very relaxing. Highly recommended.
I was so happy to be able to accommodate you during your power outage and the many closed roads during back-to-back nor'easters! The fact that your family was able to relax and feel at home is just a bonus. I hope you can return under less dire circumstances in the future to enjoy the year-round amenities and events in Arrowhead Lake and the surrounding Poconos region. — Sally
Nice home to spend time with my friends.) clean , private area amazing fire place. Thanks you! Sally
Clean and cozy, perfect for a weekend getaway!
We enjoyed our stay at tranquility cottage! The home was clean when we arrived, all the instructions for check-in and check-out were listed out in great detail and we had no issues during our stay! Highly recommend this location for small groups looking for a ski getaway
Thanks for the great review, Grant! I so appreciate guests who take the time to review the detailed instructions provided as it makes my guests stay go so much more smoothly. Please return in warmer weather to enjoy all the other activities the Poconos and Arrowhead Lake have to offer!
Very cozy place! Loved it.
Me and my fiancé had the best weekend at tranquility cottage :)
Would stay again
Property was great, I enjoyed the four days i spent here! Went to many local stores and checked out the bushkill falls and dingmans waterfall, just beautiful! Very nice layout inside the house. Would stay again! Thanks Sally
My pleasure, Evan! Thanks for the great review.
Quaint home in wonderful community w/lots to offer
The home was a little small but matched pictures etc. It was just me and my 9 year old grandson. We had a great time. The community had a great deal to offer (surprisingly huge and driving needed if you wanted to visit other pools/amenities). There was a pool in walking distance too which we visited. Grandson loved the playground there. The Lodge was lovely. We took advantage of the breakfast they offered. Lots to do within driving distance, so we did a few day trips: Bushkill Falls, Camel Beach Aquatopia, Parasailing. In the community, we did kayaking and paddleboarding. Workers at the rental shack were very flexible and let us trade kayaks for paddle boards - my grandson wanted to try it again. Great experience at the home, area and with Sally.
Thanks for the great review, Kelly! Always happy to hear my guests enjoyed the cottage, the community and the Poconos region. Looks like you packed a lot of activities into your stay!
As for the size of the house, the square footage of 950 ft is including in the listing information, but most people find that the home feels larger.
Hope you can bring your grandson back to stay in one of my cottages again soon! — Sally
