Overview

Lake Harmony Estates Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 full baths, one half baths. Acommodates 14 rather comfortably.

Nestled between Jack Frost and Big Boulder Ski resorts, just a short stroll from the beach and boat dock on the shores of Lake Harmony makes for the perfect setting for this gorgeous, oversize chalet. Magnificent Mountain Manor is located within 1.5 hours car ride from Philadelphia, straight up I-476 and a 2 hours ride from NYC, West on I-80, making this an ideal weekend getaway. However, the area has much to offer regardless of the season to warrant lengthier stays. There is so much to do that I simply lack the space to describe. But be weary, for the Magnificent Mountain Manor is in itself an attraction. Featuring two game rooms loaded with a pool table, wet bar, shuffleboard, card table, Foosball, ping pong, and bumper pool, the adults can declare their own space. An indoor hot tub room and two large decks are perfect for relaxation. MASTER CARD and VISA accepted.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Don Martin

As owner of Don Martin Vacation Rentals and DMR Property Management servicing rental properties in the Wildwoods, New Jersey since 1993, I have full knowledge of what guests expect and strive to deliver same. Guests want an accessible, responsive owner or property manager. They expect to receive what is advertised and rightfully demand that they arrive to a clean, well maintained home. One only needs to read the reviews to know that I consistently deliver on my guests' expectation. I strive to provide my guests the best possible rental experience. I am constantly up dating the property to that end. In 2015, we replace and expanded the rear deck to provide seating for more guests; we totally remodeled the hot tub room, tiled the basement game room floor and kitchen. Coming in 2016 we will be adding landscaping to include a fire pit and adding a dart board for are guests' enjoyment and will renovate the master bedroom. Returning guests, making up the majority of my reservations, have come to expect something new and improve each year.

Don Martin purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Don Martin chose Lake Harmony

Prior to purchasing in Lake Harmony Estates we visited nearly every community within a 20 mile radius. Although many were nice, we kept going back Lake Harmony. We were drawn by the many restaurants and proximity to Big Boulder and Jack Frost. The community just felt different than the rest, having larger homes and a more serene setting. After are researched we were convinced this was the perfect setting for our dream vacation home in the mountains.

What makes this chalet unique

After purchasing the lot in 2003 we spent two years looking at house plans and touring homes. Finally, we knew what we wanted and had plans drawn incorporating many features from other homes that were to are liking. After constructions we spent countless hours furnishing and decorating the home creating the perfect vacation home for our family. While finishing the house we never gave thought to renting. This was to be our vacation home and as such spared no cost in finishing and equipping the home. But, the kids grew older, becoming more involved in sports and our ability to utilize the home diminished, making logical to rent our dream home to help shoulder the expense. Although there are many fine homes to rent in Lake Harmony few if any rise to level of comfort afforded by the Magnificent Mountain Manor.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation in the poconos! The home was fabulous. It was huge and had so many fun things to keep the kids busy. The location was great, and we loved having access to the private beach on Lake Harmony. We had a doe and her baby fawn right outside off the deck one night! We would love to come back again in the future.

Very good value and has a bit of everything

  • 4 of 5

The place is well kept and it was ample place for all 13 of us. The church youths we brought enjoyed the pool table greatly, as it sits right next to the living room and not in the basement. Everything was pretty well kept. The kitchen area has enough space for a few of us to prepare food at the same time. We enjoy the big open area on the first floor. Directions and instructions from Don were very thorough and clear to follow. Unfortunately we can only sleep for one night as a few of them will start college on the 3rd day. The place is close to most Poconos attractions, as horseback riding was just 20 mins driving. The small private beach by lake Harmony was surprisingly lots of fun for those of us who went. We were met with 3 leisurely strolling deers nearby the house and we took lots of pics. Wish we had more time there to really relax and enjoy the house...

Some minor repairs are needed with most in-house games, like a pool stick needs to be replaced, most ping-pong paddles are worn out, one air hockey puck is broken, and foosball has a stuck bar. Not sure if a prior renter abused them or not, but we made do with all of them except the air hocky table.

Great Home for a Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Vacationed there with extended family - more than enough room for all 11 of us and then some! Loved all the extras the house offers, pool table, ping pong, etc. - kept the kids busy while adults had time to relax and catch up. Well kept - would definitely rent again - enjoyed the lake and surrounding areas.

PERFECT......PERFECT..........PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could possibly want for a summer (and winter) retreat.

My group ranged in age from 4 to 74 and everyone had a wonderful time!!! Lots of game tables, hot tub, air conditioning and walking distance to the lake with a canoe for our use.

Don was easily accessible and the location is perfect. It was our second time there and everyone wants to go back next year!

Had a wonderful time

  • 4 of 5

The location, entertainment options, and amenities are great... The house is a bit old. You can tell the bathrooms are old, but it's very well maintained. Don was great in his response with all requests. The kitchen was reasonable, but is missing a kettle. We actually had to buy one in order to drink tea. Overall, I highly recommend this home, and would come again given the right expectations.
