This property is located in the private lake community of Towamensing Trails. This Chalet-style house features two bedrooms, full bath, living room, and kitchen on the first floor. The second floor has a large enclosed loft which is set up as a family room and sleeping area with a full bathroom. The front of the house has a nice deck with furniture and a gas grill. There is plenty of parking in the driveway.
The house is located directly across the street from the lake, boat marina, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Only a short walk to the lakefront beach and clubhouse which features a swimming pool, playground, restaurant, outdoor snack bar, and game room.
Big Boulder, Jack Frost, Lake Harmony and Split Rock Resort featuring their new indoor waterpark are only ten minutes away. If you like to hike , Hickory State Park is also a ten minute ride. Camelback, Camelbeach Water Park, and the Tannersville Outlets are only a 20 minute ride.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 9-day stay at this house. It provided exactly what we wanted for our vacation: comfortable, clean and spacious accommodation, plenty of facilities to cook our own meals and a peaceful base from which to explore the area. The property is exactly as described and the photos are a great representation of what each of the rooms are like. We found the bed to be really comfortable and we really appreciated the heating that is in every room (individually controlled by separate thermostats) as the weather turned pretty cool whilst we were staying there in October.
The property is set in a beautiful private community which was extremely quiet throughout our stay and provided plenty of opportunity for walking from the house – the lake is just a couple of minutes away. I would imagine the area is busier in the summer as there are plenty of recreation facilities available for use, with a beach and clubhouse within 10 minutes’ walk. There are a lot of white tail deer wandering freely around the community and we were delighted that they made daily visits in to our garden, as did the squirrels and a fox.
There is so much to see and do in the immediate area but, as keen hikers, we loved walking the trails in Hickory Run and Lehigh Gorge State Parks (15-20 minute drive) and Jim Thorpe is a great place to visit (20 minute drive), both for the town itself and for taking a train ride (or bicycle trip) along the Lehigh Gorge.
In summary, we would thoroughly recommend this property. Thanks to Julie for making the booking process so straight forward - and for coming to our rescue with this great house when we were struggling to find anywhere suitable to stay in PA.
This was a cozy house in a great location. An easy walk to the amenities. Julie the owner was a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely consider renting from Julie again.
The property was as it was described. Furthermore, there is a ceiling fan in each room; TV has free access to Netflix and other other streaming apps, along with satellite tv; all utensils and plates are available; and there was plenty of gas left for the grill, only the grill itself might not get cleaned after each guest so you may have to clean it yourself if you want to use it, like we had to do.
Great overall experience, very comfortable house, love the nature that surrounded us. We had a family of deer hang out with us most of the time, which yhe kids LOVED.
Very nice home, we had two of our daughters and their children with us, and it was very comfortable and well kept. Everything was just as described, and the owner is very helpful. The community is a little boring in the off season, (winter but no snow locally), but it is very near various ski resorts which is wonderful. Perfect place for families, we had 4 kids under 6 years old.
