About Nick and Jill Frezza

Jill and I live in New Jersey, have 2 kids and have been married for 24 years. We believe vacations are precious and want you to stay at a 'home' not just some vacation house.

Nick and Jill Frezza purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Nick and Jill Frezza chose Poconos

This is our second house on this lake(check out HomeAway #202448). When this house came up for sale I knew we had to have it. It was foreclosed and empty for 2 years. But had a lot of potential. Almost every part of this house is new... furnace, hot water heater, stove, refrigerator, paint, carpet, roof, etc

What makes this chalet unique

Location, Location, Location. Whether it's boats in the summer or just not having houses in your back yard have a house on the lake makes all the difference.

Great time on the lake

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house! We were on the lake all day every day! There were so many things to keep our adventurous kids busy-kayaking, paddle boat, fishing, ping pong and air hockey. The only times they used their phones were to post pictures for their friends : )

Wal-mart was right down the road for all of our needs. The house had all the kitchen equipment we needed to make our day easier including a grill and a fire pit.

The scenery was beautiful! We had daily visits from deer, with turtles and even a bald eagle on the lake. We just left and everyone is asking me when we can go back.

I didn't give 5 stars because of some issues with the welcome center and the surrounding community. We will be back again

Owner's Response: Bernadette, We are so glad you enjoyed our house, lake, and all our amenities. Although we don't understand how issues with the welcome center and community should be any reflection on us, we do appreciate you taking the time to write a review and we'd love to have you and your family back again. Nick and Jill

Great location on the lake

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a weekend in May at this lake house. First the pros: what a great location, right on the lake, no streets to cross and amazing sunsets right from the back deck. Also right down the road is a playground which my 3 year old grandson took advantage of and the sand beach. The kyacks, rowboat and paddle boat were used everyday, We were also able to fish right from the dock. We did have to call Nick twice and he was always available and helpful, once for directions and the second for air conditioner instructions. As always there are some cons. The house could have used a good power washing and the lawn could have been mowed. We did notice that a lot of houses in this development could have used the same. The rowboat and paddle boat both leaked...a lot. The upstairs where the bedrooms are located was always warm sometimes uncomfortably so even with the air conditioner turned on.

We did have a good time as a family so the pros definitely outweighed the cons.

Owner's Response: Hi Eileen, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We strive for 5 stars so getting a 4 star review is a little disappointing. Glad we could help you find the house when you got lost, and walk you through turning on the AC. We wish you would have call about the other issues so they could have been resolved. We're glad you enjoyed all our amenities. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. Thanks, Nick and Jill

Excellent Time

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a weekend in April and it was absolutely excellent. The house was clean and everything (light switches, wifi password, TV remotes) was labeled. It was too cold to go out on the lake but the garage did have everything we could ask for if we chose to (the kayaks in the pictures, fishing poles, etc.). There was plenty of room and we honestly couldn't think of anything that needed improvement. We will definitely be back again.

Guys Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy and comfortable to stay at the lake house. The host had great communication with providing us all the information we needed. They provided a fire wood for the pit in the backyard which is a plus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and took advantage of the lake using the row boat. Our only regret is that we did not book a longer stay.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at our 2nd time at this property. There was plenty of room and the house gave a warm home feeling as opposed to some other homes we stayed at that were plain. We look forward to renting this property again. Great communication with the owners.

Good clean house

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained, the location is secluded enough to feel private, at least in the winter. The lake is frozen, so we couldn't do any fishing, but the views are great. There are even fishing poles in the garage. We couldn't reach the fire pit, but ended up cooking on the grill, which maintained temperate rather well considering the weather. The firewood is well stocked so we used the fireplace every day as well.

Overall we loved it!

Couple of notes to the owners: the freezer might be having issues. It wasn't able to freeze Texas toast. I adjusted the temperature dial, but that seems to only affect the fridge. Also, you may want to have whoever is taking care of the property, salt the stairs on occasion. There was a half inch slab of ice on each step front and back. I was wearing sneakers on arrival and ended up on my behind:)
