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, and fiancé, who – like me – enjoys hiking 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 manage four others, as well as a townhome at Lake Harmony/Big Boulder — 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 Poconos

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time, it's a very nice place.

We will be calling in the future to rent it again.

Perfect! Had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had such a great time at your home Sally. The kitchen was fully stocked, plenty of pillows and blankets, and such a comfy clean feeling once we walked in. We loved the firepit that's in the backyard, and loved the fact the trees surrounded us. No complaints at all about your home..You kept in contact with me through email and answered any questions I had quickly. Only thing was the weather, the day we got there rained, the next day was cloudy and the day we had to leave was sunny! We still had fun and enjoyed ourselves But now we know for next time to book in July or August instead of June! Thanks so much Sally for letting us stay at your home. We will look forward to staying again soon maybe in one of your other spacious rentals! Take care

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear the weather didn't cooperate but so glad you enjoyed your time at Arrowhead Lake. FYI, there is a minimum one week stay starting the third week in June until Labor Day and I frequently book July and part of August the prior year, so if you want to come back next summer I suggest you book by January latest. Thanks for the great review and hope to have you back next year... Sally

Wonderful little place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a friend to get some hiking and biking done in the surrounding state parks. We had a wonderful time even though the weather was not perfect. The house was the perfect size and well kept. Everything worked as expected and we loved having a fireplace and fire pit. There are plenty of things close for things to do or to grab anything that was needed that we may have forgot. I would highly recommend the place to anyone seeking a nice stay close to Pocono state parks.

Owner's Response: Pennsylvania truly has some gems in its state parks! Camelback Mountain, Hickory Run and Lehigh Gorge state parks are all within 35-50 minutes of this cottage. In addition, Bushkill Falls, "The Niagara of Pennsylvania," is 50 minutes away. There are also three ski/tubing resorts within 30 minutes, so you may want to return this winter for more great outdoor activities! So glad to hear you enjoyed the some of state's treasures as well as the cottage. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. — Sally

Owner's Response: Rudy, thanks so much for the great review. Cleanliness is a top priority with me; I'm glad you noticed. ;) Arrowhead Lake is a peaceful place year-round, but it's especially serene and quiet outside summer. I still have availability for Fall at the Tranquility Cottage as well as my 5 other Poconos properties, so if you find yourself frazzled and in need of another peaceful weekend, c'mon back! — Sally

Owner's Response: Kendra, thanks for the review. Arrowhead Lake pools and beaches are open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Outside summer, the Grand Lodge is open and offers a fitness center, library, free wifi, a library where you can borrow books and DVDs, and beautiful views of the lake from the patio. There are also community events year-round, including movie nights, dinners, holiday parties, Bingo, exercise and dance classes, and more. In addition, I offer 2 kayaks for rent from early May through October. Glad to hear you enjoyed your birthday weekend and hope you can return next summer to enjoy the pools and beaches. — Sally

The best possible description for this house IS TRANQUILITY house!.

Excellent location/walking to the pool/

Small but just enough for large family.

Nice fire pit outside

Few small problems should be fixed: impossible to use a 2nd level for bunk bed, dangerous to start outside grill , difficulty to lock deck door.

WE enjoyed it and recommended to all!

Easy to communicate with the owner/Thanks Sally!/

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the Tranquility Cottage, Marina. Glad you enjoyed the location and the home. I'm sorry you had difficulty with a few things. To address your comments: 1. The upper bunk best suited for young children only. It is possible for anyone up to 150 lbs. max to use the bunk, the ceiling is just a bit low. 2. There is an electronic ignition so you simply open the propane tank, turn the controls on and hit the ignition button once or twice. As long as you follow this procedure the grill is very safe to use. 3. The rear door handle simply needs to be pulled up as far as it can go before the lock will open or close; the index card next to the door has instructions for operation. Takes a time or two to get the hang of it but most people don't have trouble after that. I appreciate your feedback and look forward to having you back next summer, if not sooner! — Sally
