Great Vacation Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and in a great location on the lake. Plenty to do on the property as well as the surrounding area. Boating/Canoeing on the lake was a great time. Also, we were surprised with how many fish we were catching right off the dock. The owner is extremely nice and very easy to deal with regarding the rental agreement. Overall, we had a great time on the lake. Perfect place for a family/friend getaway.

Girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! It has comfy furniture not your average rental furniture. It had more then ample hot water supply for four women's showers. The view of the lake is beautiful, we were fortunate enough to be there for the fall foliage. We had a fire on the private beach and while we were setting there three deer came up about twenty feet away to take a drink from the lake! There were plenty of activities to fill our long weekend. It was peaceful setting on the deck after a full day. . The shops in town are very affordable, a lovely town to stroll through. The residents were so friendly. Penns Peak Resteraunt had delicious home made potato chips. My only complaint would be that we had to leave to go back to the real world.

From the very first minute I pulled into the driveway I was extremely thrilled with this home. Amazing location, beautiful house inside and out , very clean and very peaceful. There was nothing I needed. The house had everything and more then you could possibly imagine. The photos of the house did not even do it justice. Homeowners were wonderful. You can tell they truly want you to have the best time by all the little details they provided. If you don't have a great time or get bored, it would be your own fault. Location was perfect! Nicely tucked away in the woods but close enough to all that Jim Thorpe has to offer! The homeowners even have pamphlets of things of interest to do. I will definitely recommend this house to everyone and I would to come back.

We LOVE this place

  • 5 of 5

From the early morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake to the campfire on the beach night, from canoeing and peddle boating on the lake to swimming in the heated pool, from the clean and nicely decorated house to the well kept landscaping. This is the most beautiful and peaceful place we have ever stayed. This is our second stay at this house and Joe has maintained the standards that so impressed us the first time. My family and I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a wonderful vacation spot or just a place to hideout and relax. Joe makes reserving and renting the property so easy and he is so helpful in answering any questions you might have. Joe, Thank you again for allowing us to spend time in your beautiful home.

What a wonderful place to take a vacation. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home in the comfortable, chalet style house. The kitchen had everything we needed and some things we didn't know we needed. Even though the house is great nothing beats the private beach and lake area. Between the paddleboat, canoe and variety of float devices we had enough to keep us happy and occupied all day in the water which happened to be the perfect temperature. We were supposed to go into the town of Jim Thorpe on Sunday and canceled our plans until the following day because no one wanted to leave the house.
