Read on for the full description of this one of a kind property:
This fully air conditioned and newly renovated 5 bedroom / 3 bath home provides an incredible view of Arrowhead Lake. The main floor of Serendipity is an open concept, allowing you to enjoy being together and the beautiful vista at the same time. Whether you are enjoying a family dinner in the bright dining room, sitting by the fire in the great room, cooking in the kitchen, relaxing on the deck or even doing laundry, you are never away from the view or the camaraderie of family and friends. The dining room also closes off so the adults can enjoy a relaxing or romantic meal, while the kids watch TV, a DVD, or play one of the many provided board games. The kitchen has been totally refinished with new cabinets, granite counter top seating 3, and a 70 inch picture window. Serendipity’s new lower level, with entry right off the lake, includes two bedrooms with lake views and a large bathroom, plus the family game room with bar, wine fridge, Foosball table, Queen sleeper sofa, Smart TV with WIFI laptop connect, and a Blue-Ray player.
Sleeping 15, each of Serendipity’s 5 bedrooms has its own unique style. The private Master suite boasts of a King bed, double shower bathroom and deck on which to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee while watching the sunrise. The second King bedroom is on the main floor with two large windows providing a wooded view. The double bunk bedroom on the main floor sleeps 4. Both of the two lower level bedrooms have lake views: one with a Queen bed and one with both a Queen and a Twin. The sleeper sofa in the family room pulls out into a Queen bed with a memory foam mattress, as comfortable as any of the other beds. Everything on the lower level is brand new.
All bathrooms are either fully renovated or new, with both upper level bathrooms including heated floor tiles. The double shower in the master bath includes a built in seat and grab bar. The tiled lower level bath also includes a grab bar. Each bathroom has low flush toilets.
While fully air conditioned, Serendipity’s many windows let in the fresh, invigorating mountain air and provide a nice cross breeze. It is unlikely that you will need the air conditioning on most days, but it is a most welcome feature on those few days that you do.
Picture your family and friends here, relaxing on the deck, enjoying the view, fishing or playing in or on the water with the kayak, canoe or paddle boat included in the rental. Boat or walk to the nearby beach / playground, less than 5 minutes away. Sit by the fire pit roasting marshmallows and enjoying the multitude of stars. Watch the hovering hummingbirds from our very active deck-mounted feeder. Early morning kayak rides on the glass-like lake are a personal favorite, watching the mist rise off the lake, listening to the many varieties of birds and basking in the peace and quiet. And, in winter, when the lake is sufficiently frozen, you can ice skate or fish right in front of the house or even walk to the lodge across the frozen lake.
We are on the quiet section of the community with minimal traffic. Our large two lot property boarders a large undeveloped wooded area, creating a quiet, peaceful retreat. You can create lasting memories as you enjoy the open space, the peaceful beauty, and the inviting, relaxing setting offered by Serendipity Lake House.
Arrowhead is a quiet, private community that requires card key access and boasts of 3 pools, 5 beaches, tennis courts and a new lodge, easily accessible by boat, where you can use the gym, billiard room and library. And, if you need even more entertainment, you are only a short distance from mini golf, water parks, ski slopes, waterfalls, hiking, white water rafting, paint ball, golf courses, casinos, car racing, wine tasting, shopping and more.
Just 2 hours (or less) from Philadelphia, North Jersey and New York we are close to home, but a lifetime away.
We have been married more than 20 years!
This house has been a dream of ours realized and it is our pleasure to share it with you.
Jesse & Wendy Huestis purchased this house in 2012
Ever have a moment of true serendipity? When you make a fortunate discovery purely by accident or fate? That's exactly what happened when this house found us. Owning a lake house in the Poconos had been what we always thought was an unattainable dream...until the summer of 2012. While staying at a friend's house which was for sale on North Arrowhead Lake, a realtor came by to show the property. Being curious to check out my friend's 'competition' we talked to the realtor about other lakefront properties for sale. Thinking we were interested buyers (which we weren't); she gave us her card, which we quickly tucked away. We went about enjoying our vacation until it began to rain and rain some more. As the boredom set in, we thought it might be fun to just look at some of the listings the realtor had mentioned. So off we took in a torrential downpour to look at houses. We were having fun, just checking out various home styles and furnishing choices, but nothing peaked our interest. When we first pulled in to what was to become Serendipity, we were less than enthusiastic. The front entrance does not do justice to what awaited inside and on the lake side. I can't explain the feeling, but it was mutual and instantaneous. It felt like home, like the “Miracle on 34th street”, just waiting for us to discover it. We spent the next two days talking about it, telling ourselves we were crazy, but feeling as if, for some reason, this house was meant for us. And, as they say, the rest is history. We have spent the last two years giving our moment of serendipity our own unique personal touch. And the serendipity continues in so many aspects of our home, the people we have met and the renters who have made memories in this very special house. The journey continues to astound and amaze us with positive energy. We hope that you too feel the special spirit that lives within these walls.
The openness of the home, and the amazing view of the lake are what sets Serendipity apart. Over time, we have come to appreciate additional benefits of our location and of the community itself. The house is situated such that it does not get the direct western sun, meaning that it is cooler in the summer. You won't be blinded by the late afternoon sun as you relax or barbeque on the deck. The house sits on a double lot and next to a large wooded property which affords much space and privacy. We are on the quiet side of the big lake where the only cars which pass are those going to the surrounding houses. We are centrally located in the community, close enough to walk across the frozen lake to the lodge in the winter or quickly boat to 2 different beaches in the summer. And need I say more about the view in any season?
This place was amazing! Fully equipped, spacious, comfortable, and host was extremely helpful and accommodating.
The scenery is beautiful, the home is warm and inviting and the community is well organized and secure. Our stay was with 9 adults between the ages of 17 - 64, and the place was perfect. The layout of bedrooms, the quantity of bathrooms and the living quarters served us perfectly. There was not a dull moment to our vacation! Jesse and Wendy were responsive in organizing our stay and met every need. The pictures, listing description and amenities were exactly as described; and upon our arrival there were no surprises. Clean and well-maintained, we would recommend this property. They are wonderful individuals who have opened their home for others to enjoy and we are grateful!
Booked this home for the Christmas holiday weekend and everything was exactly as stated. Beautiful mountain home on a lake with all of the amenities my family wanted. Totally stocked kitchen - all we needed was our clothing. Definitely would rent again perhaps in the summer to utilize the lake and the rest of the resort.
We spent the weekend in this beautiful house in October. The house is well kept and contains all the necessary items that you can think of from games, boating, and full kitchen. The owner was very accommodating to all our needs throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend this house whether with friends or family. Thank you for a great weekend!!
Our ten-member family of three generations spent a week at Serendipity in August - what a delight for all of us! Everyone had the sleeping accommodations that they needed, plenty of towels, and space to spend lots of together time, as well as the opportunity to be alone for quiet reflection. The kitchen had all we needed for a variety of meals, as well as plenty of crockery and silverware. The little one loved swimming in the pool as well as the lake and had lots of fun on the sandy beach. We were lucky to have cooler weather which allowed us to spend a lot of time outside without the tiredness that draining heat and humidity can bring. We love coming to Arrowhead Lake because of the variety of activities and the beauty of the area.
Jesse is very easy to work with; he is quick to respond to questions and very knowledgeable about the Pocono Mountains area. We have already booked our return visit for next August!
Celebrated my fathers 70th birthday and we all had an amazing time. The owners of this place really did a wonderful job and make sure your stay is everything you hoped for. The view is absolutely amazing. Truly is a hidden Gem!
We will be back. Thank you so much!!!
The Poconos offer a wide variety of fun. Hiking, boating, being in the mountains, skiing, water parks, Gambling, good dining, golf and almost anything else.
