About the property

About our home:

This two-story vacation home, built in 2006, is located in Laurel Woods II development. With four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and luxurious accommodations, you'll find a relaxing atmosphere with plenty of space for big families and many friends. Also enjoy the 3 flatscreen TVs (6 TV's total), free wireless internet access, DVD players, iPod dock, and Xbox too (tell the kids to bring their own games and controllers). Grilling out on the big deck in the back, and soaking in the hot tub is a great way to relax after a long day on the lake or on the slopes.

Things to do:

In the summer months, our guests have access to the Boulder Lake Club on Big Boulder Lake, which offers swimming (pool and lake), fishing, boating, tennis, and snoozing on the beach or at the pool. Drinks and munchies available at Boulder View Tavern, and their beach bar, a few short steps from your beach chair.

Split Rock Resort, only a short ride around the lake offers the Galleria, golfing, a water park, movies, bowling, and mini golf. Hickory Run State park is only a 15 min drive for fishing, swimming and hiking.

In the winter, enjoy skiing at Big Boulder (1 block to the parking lot) and Jack Frost (10 min drive).

Many, many other activities and places to visit in the ever popular Poconos area. I'm happy to share recommendations for wherever your interests.

Catering services, transportation services and other related "concierge" services are available for personal and corporate events. Please inquire for details.


1. How far is the lake/pool from the house? 1 mile. You can walk two blocks to the lake, but the Boulder Lake Club (swimming pool, lake etc) is one mile away.

About James Beale

My wife and I live in Exton, Pa, and have enjoyed vacationing with our family in the Poconos for a long time. With our two kids and two dogs, we look forward to the many activities all year 'round that our new dream home in Lake Harmony, Pa. has to offer.

James Beale purchased this house in 2012

Why James Beale chose Lake Harmony

We chose this property because of... location, location, location. Membership at the Boulder Lake Club. Several beautiful golf courses. Many spots to fish and hike. Split Rock Resort a short drive away (water park, golf, movies, arcades, etc.). Hot tub on the deck. We found our home away from home! We hope you enjoy your stay!

What makes this house unique

Promise to our guests renting this home: Please know that Christy and I will work hard to do whatever it takes to ensure your stay goes perfectly. Our goal is to make your stay effortless and enjoyable. Kitchen will be equipped with everything you need (just bring the food). Fishing rods, tennis rackets, skateboards, and whatever else I (or you) can think of will be on hand too. From our experience with renting homes for our own vacation getaways, we always appreciated any home that we rented that was 100% set up for a great time. So, we take pride in making sure you're amazed and delighted the minute you arrive.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. Your feedback is appreciated and helpful to ensure high quality for future rentals. Regarding the fridge, we never noticed anything wrong ourselves and haven't had any reports about it not being cold from others, but will measure to ensure in good working order. Regarding the bed, new bed frame on the way. Sorry you experienced our short-term fix. A side note to add: a guest left their wallet behind. I sent the wallet back via priority mail as soon as I was notified at no charge. Thanks again...hope to hear from you for future rentals.

Great Home! Beautiful and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday week at the house. Plenty of room for everyone, loved the layout and the kitchen is fantastic! We rent frequently and this home had all the necessary amenities and then some. Beautifully decorated! We all loved it and will rent again! I'd highly recommend this home!

Wonderful, Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this beautiful home this past Thanksgiving holiday 2016. We found this home to be absolutely perfect for our holiday, it was clean, kitchen has everything, and the view out the kitchen window of Big Boulder ski resort was beautiful. The house is centrally located, was easy to find and close to grocery store, CVS, and gas. We enjoyed the hot tub on back deck even in the snow, grilled our turkey, and grandsons loved the bunk bed room and game room. We also enjoyed the beautiful fireplace in living room where we took our Christmas card pictures. If in the area doing holiday's highly recommend the train ride in the town of Jim Thorpe with Santa. Also hiking in Hickory Run State Park. The owner Jaimy was so nice and so helpful, thank you Jaimy for sharing your wonderful home and also letting us bring our dog. We will differently be back.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

So, it wasn't the perfect family vacation when we arrived to find a broken air conditioner during probably the hottest, most humid week of the whole summer in Lake Harmony, BUT .... Jaimy was awesome! He listened to me complain and got the repair tech out immediately, then again the next day when it still wasn't fixed, and kept on the case until we were cool and comfy. Overall, the house is comfortable and stocked with what's needed to make the trip like a home away from home, but more fun - plus the deer hang out in the woods and watch as you hang out on the fabulous back deck! Bottom line, the owner's attention to our A/C issue won me over and we'd definitely go back again!

Relaxing Home In The Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I truly enjoyed our stay at this vacation home. Although we got off to a rocky start due to the house not being cleaned prior to our arrival, Jaimy was extremely responsive to our concerns and addressed them within a couple of hours of our arrival. There had been a mix-up with the cleaning service and they were unaware that the group prior to us had checked out. Nonetheless, the owner truly went above and beyond to rectify situation that evening. That meant a lot to us, and it showed the owner's genuine care and concern for the happiness of his guests. I think this is very important when a traveler considers a vacation rental. Jaimy definitely gets 5 stars for customer service!

The house is very nice and was perfect for my group. It is conveniently located 2 blocks away from the lake, within a 5 minute drive to a couple of restaurants and bars, and within 10-15 minutes of White Water rafting. It was nice to come home after a fun and exhausting day of white water rafting to soak in the large hot tub on the deck and marvel at the deer and birds in the trees behind the home. My group eat almost every meal outside at the 6-person table on the deck. It was definitely one of our favorite places to hang out. The kitchen is spacious and has pretty much every utensil you will need. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also very well appointed. Although we brought our own board games and connected our tablets to watch our favorite shows on the large TV in the living room, there were plenty of games and other items to keep a group entertained already in the home.

Overall, my friends and I would definitely rent this home again when we return to the Poconos!

The online description does not do this property justice. The house is clean and absolutely lovely! Plenty of space for 4 adults and 4 children and the kitchen is impressive and had great appliances and was well-stocked with all the tools needed to create lovely meals! Not having to pack our own sheets and bath towels was an added bonus.

The deck was great and we saw loads of wildlife (deer, birds) from the comfort of the porch. The hot tub was clean and easy to use!

The Beach Club was the perfect location for relaxing with the family, but we were never bored! We swam in the lake and pool, we made sand castles, we rented boats a few days! We were very close to other kid-friendly attractions as well! Shopping, eating, hiking, and even a train ride were our highlights.

My family immediately decided we will be back next summer!
