About Steve & Sandy
While living and working in New York City, we started our search for a vacation house that would offer us an escape from the daily hustle & bustle. We knew we wanted someplace that was close enough so that we could get there quickly and yet far enough away so that NYC would feel like the other side of the world. So in 2012, after a lot of searching, we decided on the community of Lake Naomi. It was an incredibly well-established vacation community (over 50 years) located in the heart of the Poconos. Its location in the Poconos and the amazing amenities that Lake Naomi provides made our choice — a no brainer. We looked at a lot of houses in Lake Naomi but didn’t seem to find that special something that we were looking for in our city getaway…until we came across Feels Like Heaven. The house was incredibly unique. The true chalet look that Feels Like Heaven has makes you feel like you’re in the Alps, not the Poconos. The gigantic deck was the perfect place to spend evenings with family and friends, from spring through fall. The two huge stone wood-burning fireplaces had the mountain retreat feel we were looking for.. we were hooked. After enjoying the house ourselves and sharing our mountain retreat with our friends and family, we decided to start renting the house to others so they could share the experience of staying in Feels Like Heaven. The name Feels Like Heaven may sound cheesy to others, but when the time came to name our house, it was the best way of capturing what this house felt like to us. Whenever we do any improvements in the house we always ask ourselves “Would that feel like heaven?” When the answer is yes, then we go ahead with the improvement. Nothing that you find in Feels Like Heaven is an afterthought; everything that we put into the house needs to live up to the Feels Like Heaven name. Making our choices based on that question gives us the confidence to say that this is one of the best houses to rent in the Poconos.
Steve & Sandy purchased this Chalet in 2012
Why Steve & Sandy chose Pocono Pines
Once you set foot in Feels Like Heaven, you will know why this is the house we chose. First the community, Lake Naomi is the best vacation community in the North East – bar none. No other vacation community offers the amenities with the quality that is found in everything Lake Naomi offers. For that reason, we specifically wanted a house in the Lake Naomi community. And once we saw this house, it’s size, charm, and character, not to mention it’s proximity to everything – we knew this was the house we wanted. As soon as you pull into the driveway you can tell this is not your typical chalet house. The details found in this house are not found in any other house in Lake Naomi, those details give you an incredible feeling as soon as you pull into the driveway, it really feels like you step into a fairy tale. The longer you stay here the more details you notice in the house and the more you fall in love with the house and Lake Naomi. I promise you that you will not want to leave once you and your family stay here.:-)

Awesome getaway house!
We loved the house and our time at Feels like Heaven! The house was well equipped and had all the amenities and more than what we needed. We loved the coziness of the house..really made us feel like we were at home. The owners were extremely responsive and helpful in making our weekend perfect! We look forward to planning more trips back. Thank you!
Class of 83 Trip
We had a fabulous time and would rent it again. Everything was provided for you from the stocked kitchen and all the amenities in bathrooms. Couldn’t have ask for anything more from the owners. Owners where very quick to answer any questions we had about the property or the surrounding area. We really enjoyed the game room. The guys loved the big screen downstairs to watch football!! Was extremely windy and cold so we didn’t get to take advantage of the hot tub(maybe next time). Loved our getaway!! Thanks!!
Feels Like Heaven is the Perfect Name for this House
For years, We’ve been coming to the Poconos for Columbus Day weekend. This year was by far our best visit. This house is perfect for a a large family of different ages to bond and hang out. The game room is terrific and there is enough living space to ensure everyone is satisfied. Listening to leaves rain down from the hardwood deck made for a peaceful afternoon. The hot tube is spotless. The linens and towels are superior quality for a rental and the kitchen is well equipped with everything. When you visit pay attention to the small details- there are so many- it’s what provides such charm! The owners are responsive, extremely thoughtful and kind. They truly want you to enjoy their home. Lake Naomi is stunning and the ability to purchase a temporary membership to the Lake Naomi Club is key! We would highly recommend this property and plan to book again soon.
It was a 40th bday weekend with the guys and it was perfection. The owner communication and all the little things that made it awesome. Can’t thank you enough Steve. Will def be returning...
Gracious hosts, cozy accommodation, great location
The chalet is very homey. The deck is enormous and helps navigate the generously size chalet. A dip in the hot tub is life changing after a day of activity. Time flies in the game room and the basement allows for the perfect place to watch a
Movie or the game. The rooms are super cozy making it hard to get out of bed. Everything you want to do is within a 20 minute drive. Sandy and Steve are eager to help and extremely understanding (lost my key and had to wait for a spare.) great experience and well worth the price! Thanks again for a little piece of heaven!
My group had an absolutely wonderful time at this property! Anything and everything we needed was available at the house, and the entire reservation process was very easy. Steve and Sandy provided us with all the information we would need in a very systematic and organized way. Thanks for a great time!
