|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
A funky house that is sure to give you a great vacation with plenty of room for everyone and lots of neat touches that will make the stay enjoyable for the entire family and any friends you want to bring.
North lake location means low volume of traffic going by to maximize your enjoyment of the surroundings while also reducing worry for the kids. On almost an acre of land, a wooded area next to the house will certainly keep young explorers safely busy and keep their imaginations active.
Open plan with large, vaulted-ceiling living / dining area to watch the 47 inch LCD Satellite TV, enjoy the propane fireplace, or look out at the lake through the ample windows or 2 sets of sliding glass doors. Full kitchen with brand new stainless appliances including a smooth 5 burner cook-top and dishwasher.
4 great sized bedrooms. Master on first floor with Queen bed AND daybed AND pack-n-play 3 bedrooms on second floor including one with queen bed, one with full-size bed, and one room with 2 sets of bunk-beds (4 beds). Televisions in the master and upstairs queen bedrooms with satellite access.
Bathroom on second floor, full bathroom in master complete with shower unit and bidet. (that's unexpected!) Another complete bath on first floor with tub / shower and another bidet. Half bath right off the entrance next to an indoor, cedar-sided hot-tub room with in-ground hot-tub spa that seats 2-3 easily, 4 if you are really close.
Separate game room that offers a full-size air-hockey table, Foosball and big 55 inch TV. A propane fireplace / stove keeps it very warm, and the room is air-conditioned for the summer. Sliding glass doors and windows provide lots of light and fantastic breezes. Plus seating and a kitchenette table for gaming or snacking. This room is attached to the house but separated by a door so the games won't disturb anyone watching the satellite TV or a DVD, reading, or relaxing in the main living area.
Spacious deck features a fantastic view of the north lake. Built-in benches provide ample seating and the outdoor dining furniture with umbrella provides shade when needed and a great place to have a drink while watching the sun go down. Gas grill available for use. (we can't guarantee full propane, but refill places are close by or bring your own tank)
In-home washer / dryer so you don't have to go home with dirty clothes (unless you want to).
The house is definitely kid-friendly and has a high chair and pack-and play on site for you to use.
Free wi-fi also.
Unfortunately, our niece and nephew are allergic, so we cannot allow pets. Sorry, but the kids come first.
We're a young family from Montgomery County PA with small children who love to spend time with each other and our extended family. We enjoy skiing / snowboarding and spending time at the beach and lake, so we want the opportunity to spend time at the house as much as opening it up for other families to also enjoy it for their vacations.
The Pressman Family purchased this house in 2012
We absolutely love the location of this property. Across the street from the lake, a short walk to the beach and playground, and not even a far walk to the island pool. That pool area is the best one in the development for kids, with the mushroom waterfall. Picnic benches there as well as tennis courts make it a great place to hang out for the better part of the day.
After spending many a Christmas / New Years holiday in a small timeshare with other family and going skiing and outlet shopping, we love the area and everything there is to do, but we needed more space as our families grew. The size and space in this house is fantastic and should be able to accommodate plenty of guests. If the bedrooms don't provide enough space, there is good room for air mattresses in the main living area also. Combined with the fantastic view and the wooded property that the kids love, the game room space is awesome and just works for us.
The house is definitely 'funky' with the bidets in the bathrooms (you know you want to try one), the 70's colors and mirrors there, the crazy master bedroom and of course, the indoor hot tub / spa. It has just the right amount of funk to make it interesting and enjoyable, and gives it a touch of personality. But when we walked in after seeing about 30 houses in person and lots more on-line, it just felt like home to us. And we'd love for you to enjoy it too.
7 of us (2 adults, 5 kids) stayed at the Arrowhead property last week and we really enjoyed the house. Kids loved the air hockey and Foosball, as well as the large playroom. The owners could not have been more responsive and caring. The house was well maintained and very close to the lake.
We had a great week at the Pressman house "Blended Bliss." The house was clean, well organized and spacious. The large deck, well equipped play room, and large living room gave us and our grandchildren plenty of space. The location is outstanding, with a view of the lake, and close to the beach and beautiful pool and playground. The Pressmans responded quickly to a few general questions that we had. We highly recommend this house. For us, it was especially attractive because we found it to be so very "child friendly."

We really enjoyed our stay at this house, which is located perfectly near a beach and at a walking distance to Island pool. The place is very cozy, spacious, and well-maintained. We loved the lake front terrace and often had our meals there. Owners were very responsive to our needs. We would absolutely recommend this property to others.
Clean, comfortable, spacious house with everything you need to keep kids busy and happy. Perfect location -- it was so great to be able to just walk to the beach. Had a couple of questions before and during our stay and the owners responded right away.
We had a wonderful time at "Blended Bliss"! The house is perfect for kids to have fun as well as the adults. This home is great for multi-families to stay without being on top of each other.
The house layout was good for multiple families. Kids loved the indoor hot tub. Nice location across from the lake. The furniture and paneling were the only negative . The furniture needs to be updated . The house was very clean and great having 4 bathrooms . Thanks for sharing your home with us.
Arrowhead Lakes is a private, gated community that is family focused and offers great value and options for vacationers. Swim or kayak in the lake (rent or bring your boat), sun at the beaches, playgrounds for the kids, swimming pools (heated), basketball and tennis courts. Brand new lodge and additional clubhouse offer daily activities such as bingo, crafts for kids, dancing, exercise classes, and something unique every day. Easy community to bike, and you'll be sure to see more than your fair share of wildlife.
In the area, skiing is very close by (Jack Frost is 8 minutes, Camelback is 20 minutes tops, and the other pocono resorts aren't far. For summer, Jack Frost and Camelback both have water parks, there are several close by golf courses including split Rock Resort. There are local places to go tubing / rafting or play mini-golf.
Outlet shopping is close by, and the kids will love a trip to the 'Candle Shoppe' which has every kind of candy imaginable by the pound.
State game lands are near if you are into hunting, and the lakes are great for bass fishing we are told. Right off the beach.
Split Rock has a fantastic spa, and Mount Airy Casino is also close which offers some adult entertainment and pampering as well.
