About Wayne Zschech

Wayne is a Lutheran pastor and Kate is a realtor in Haddonfield, NJ. We have a daughter, Brigitte, who is nicknamed, Brie. Because of our Irish background and Wayne's profession, we gave our mountain getaway home the name Saint Brigid's Cross. It's meant to be our place to retreat from the demands of parish life, retail sales, and simply keeping up with the academic and extracurricular pace of high school. We all ski, but have little time on weekends to enjoy the slopes in winter. Summer is when we really get a chance to take time away for biking, hiking, and boating, and since Wayne likes to golf and the women like to shop it makes for a great compromise. Our dream has been to own a B&B one day. Opening up our home to guests is our way of tapping into our joy of making others feel welcome and having a good time. It's why Kate's family enjoys celebrating Thanksgiving here every year.

Wayne Zschech purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Wayne Zschech chose Lake Harmony Area

In 2005 Kate and I created a 10-year goal of owning a mountain home near a lake. While celebrating our 15th Anniversary the next year at Camelback we decided to check out some listings near Lake Harmony. As soon as we saw the home we knew it was for us. Kate loves to play tennis and I enjoy golf. We both enjoyed skiing and Big Boulder was the perfect mountain for getting our daughter hooked on it too. The lake amenities are so great we can stay there all day in the summer were it not for the trails at Hickory Run S.P. or Bushkill Falls or the bike trail along the Lehigh River. It was the perfect location for a family that loves the outdoors as well as the simple pleasures of a home away from home.

What makes this townhome unique

The close proximity to the ski hill at Big Boulder in the winter (as well as Jack Frost and other nearby slopes) and the Lake Mountain Club and other hiking and biking trails in the summer captured all we wanted in a mountain home. It is very quite even thought it is in a townhome community which is very calming for us living in a hustle and bustle area of the Northeast. The ground floor family room is great for children to play in and while adults can enjoy conversation in the living room without a lot of distraction. The floor plan is ideal for groups with both night owls and early birds to enjoy their stay and their sleep.

Awesome Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful birthday weekend for my husband and daughter despite the extreme cold weather. There was plenty of room for everybody. The house was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. The fireplace made it very nice and cozy in the living room. Plenty of games for the kids. Close to tubing and skiing. Thank you Wayne for a great weekend!!!

Great Birthday Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very pleased with the size and location of this home! Rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean and it accommodated all 13 of us. The house is well kept. The kids and adults enjoyed the pool, lake and the other amenities offered. It added a nice touch to our weekend.

Wayne is very easy to speak to and he answered all of our questions. I would suggest updating the refrigerator and pull out sofa in the living room. Other than that this is a Great house! Looking forward to visit soon!

Thanks Wayne!

Good. Need some improvement

  • 3 of 5

We rented this property for a weekend with friends. We were 8 adults and 4 kids. I thought the place was bit small to fit 12 people specially the living area. Could be because the previous properties we have rented last few years with the same amount of people were much larger and specious. It sleeps 12 people but if you want to gather in the living room which is what we did most of them time, it was crowded. Also The house is 3 floor including basement. With that said, everything else was fine with some items that needs to addressed.

- Master bedroom, the bed is super uncomfortable and makes noise every time I or my toddle tossed over. It makes squeaky noise that can't be avoided. The bed needs to go. I had hard time sleeping at all because I am 7 months pregnant and it was just unbearable. There isn't enough room in the room to sleep on the floor otherwise I would have done it.

- The Pillows were dirty without cover even though we took sheets and shams but it was just unpleasant to see.

-The refrigerator needs to be upgraded it was old and small compared to the other appliances. Ice maker was broken, even though we found ice bag in the fridge but it was used previously.

-We got strict direction to use the laundry detergent that was provided except they ran out. The container was empty. Usually we wouldn't need to use the laundry but my daughter threw up in the car so we had to wash the car seat cover. So we just used water which really didn't help.

lastly, the outside grill was very very dirty. The guys couldn't even think of cleaning it and since we couldn't use charcoal grill, we went to Walmart and bought an portable gas grill.

Overall we had a great time but we have stayed at better properties with the same people and same rate.

Awesome stay

  • 4 of 5

The property itself is a big place with enough room to comfortably fit 12 people. The master bedroom is the best with its own bathroom that include a division for bath tub(Jacuzzi), shower, and toilet. Everything was good the area was family orientated and the lake club had a nice swimming pool and lake.
