Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 bathroom chalet with two large fireplaces and game room(sleeps 12)

Welcome to our vacation ski chalet which we affectionately call Feels Like Heaven. Feels Like Heaven is a one of a kind, unique, spacious and comfortable 5 bedroom chalet equipped with all the amenities & a sense of ‘being at home’ you would never get from a hotel room. This home away from home has been decorated with our guests needs in mind. We are constantly striving to update the chalet so that our guests have the best experience possible.

The ski chalet is located in the Lake Naomi Country Club Community, in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. Because of Lake Naomi’s central location in the Poconos, you’re never very far from any of your favorite winter activities.

Our house is close to three of the Pocono’s main ski resorts, Camelback, Jack Frost and Big Boulder. Whether you’re into alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing or hiking, this house is the perfect getaway. After you had your fun outdoors you can warm yourself by the two large natural stone floor to ceiling wood burning fireplaces, located in the living room and great room.

Snow bunnies can also enjoy reading a book by the fireplace or take a break from the ski slopes and go shopping at the Crossings Premium Outlets. You can really get a workout visiting the 100 outlet stores.

You’ll be a short 15-20 minutes from the Crossings Outlet shopping, Mount Airy Casino and horseback riding.

Another activity that’s fun for the whole family is snow tubing. You can race each other in single or double tubes. No experience necessary.

If you are looking to escape the cold, Feels Like Heaven is also 10 minutes from the Kalahari indoor waterpark and 15 minutes from H20ooohh, both have indoor water parks that are open year round.

During your stay at our vacation chalet you can relax on the over-sized deck that faces the greenbelt. Or, just take a short 3 minute walk to Deer Trail Beach, on a quiet private trail surrounded by huge evergreen pines and Rhododendrons. After a snow fall, it is the perfect trail to go cross country skiing right out of the chalet.

You’ll find Feels Like Heaven is both away from it all and close to everything, depending what you are looking for. Whether you and your family want to do everything or nothing at all this is the perfect place to have your winter getaway.

MASTER BEDROOM & BATH HIGHLIGHTS (3rd Floor)

The chalet’s master suite is located on the 3rd floor, on its own private level of the house. The suite features a 14′ queen sized Novaform memory foam mattress, 32′ LED TV with Blu-ray DVD Player, ceiling fan and your own seating area.

Enjoy the openness of the master suite with its vaulted ceilings and PRIVATE BALCONY facing a mature pine tree with a bird house at eye’s view. It’s the perfect spot for you to sit outdoors and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon tea away from it all.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 4 GUEST BEDROOMS

DEER & FOX ROOMS (Both on the 2nd Floor)

Both the deer and fox rooms are the perfect rooms for kids. The rooms are next to each other and each has a bunk bed (twin over full). The full bed is a futon that can also function as a sitting area where you can sit and comfortably watch the 32′ LED TV. For your comfort both bedrooms have a Dyson blade-less oscillating fan.

SQUIRREL ROOM (2nd Floor)

Adjacent to the fox and deer rooms, the squirrel bedroom is warm and full of character. The room features a comfortable 14′ queen sized Novaform memory foam mattress, 32′ LED TV and a ceiling fan.

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 stay at this house 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.:-)

What makes this chalet unique

The combination of the perfect location and a house with ooodles of character.

Truly a unique house, everywhere you look there is character coming out of this house. No other house in Lake Naomi is anything like it.

We felt the location was perfect based on the short walk to deer trail beach, the deck facing the green belt, and being walking distance to both Lake Naomi and the indoor community center this house is centrally located close to everything.

The house itself has a layout that allows your extended family to stay here without feeling like your on top of each other.

When guests stay at Feels Like Heaven they feel at home, we have added many little touches to help our guests feel comfortable. It’s a great blend of being a large house and a fantastic sense of coziness.

Guestbook comments from the owner

10/23/13

This was our first time to this area. I was looking for a gathering spot for our 3 adult children, 2 spouses and 2 grandchildren (5 & 3). The house worked well for 9. Everyone enjoyed having access to the community center. The convenient location allowed the NY & Philly families to get home easily and arrange their work schedules. As a multi-generation family vacation, the house and location worked quite well. We will consider it for another family vacation.

A charming Swiss Chalet

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, charming and made it easy to hang out all weekend. The bedrooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. The house had fabulous giant stone fireplaces on the 1st and 2nd floors that we used all weekend. .Oh, and LOVED the pool table -- we played all weekend while watching football on the 60" TV downstairs. We would definitely come back again and strongly recommend this as a great rental especially for a big family group!

spacious, delightful, well-equipped, comfortable, loved the fire -pit!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend here celebrating my husband's 75th birthday with our two adult children and their children (5 of them, ages 22 months to 16 years) and Peter's sister from Michigan. We all had smiles from the beginning of our stay on Friday evening to our departure on Sunday. We fully used almost everything available- fireplace, fire pit, grill, televisions, pool table, eating on the deck, walking to the lake. Delighted to discover that the bed and bathroom linens were provided, which we didn't expect. Highly recommended!!

We loved this trip. The house has everything you could possibly need and the owners are so responsive and helpful - a real bonus when you're traveling with young kids and don't have a ton of energy. :) We enjoyed the lake and the amenities and would love to visit again.
