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.

About Jesse & Wendy Huestis

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. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Jesse & Wendy Huestis purchased this house in 2012

Why Jesse & Wendy Huestis chose Poconos

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.

What makes this house unique

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?

The fishing here is wonderful on a fully stocked lake with only 1/2 hp motors allowed. In the winter, ice skate or ice fish in front of the property. Keep warm in the evening, sitting by the firepit making smores. The whole house is air conditioned with individual controls in the great room, master and main floor bedrooms. Linens and towels available for an additional charge (they even make all the beds!) It is a really nice touch to have and the quality is better than hotel quality! The lodge offers billiards and a full fitness room for adults. The nearby community offers all season activities from skiing, water parks, white water rafting, golf, racing, casinos, outlet shopping and more!

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Serendipity Lake House. There were 10 adults and 2 children. Tons of room for everyone. We cooked all our meals in and spent many hours in the dining room overlooking the lake. We tried to take advantage of everything you could do on the lake - canoeing, kayaking, swimming, paddle boat, the beach and pools. We used the hot tub and fire pit. It was a terrific week and we all would go back in a heart beat! JT week of 7/22/17

A little bit of paradise...

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Jesse and Wendy are amazing hosts. Even though we never got to meet in person, I felt like they were there with us the entire time. Had one minor issue after arrival and Jesse's response was fantastic.

The property is amazing. They've done a very nice job inside and we lacked for nothing during the stay. It felt more like a stay in a resort than a lake house. My grandkids loved the nearby beach and the Island Pool area, not to mention the spacious backyard for lawn games, fishing off the bank. The hot tub got plenty of use during our stay :)

The lake is so quiet since there's no motors allowed. I've never been so relaxed after a week away. We had such a good time, the family vote was unanimous that we should come back next year!

Perfect for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at arrowhead and our first time at serendepity and we couldn't have been happier. Jesse and Wendy are so responsive and accommodating! The bedroom set up was perfect for us! We had people from 18 months - 77 and there was something for everyone! The fact that they provided linens and towels made packing so much easier and less stressful! They had plenty of life jackets and water activities which we definitely took advantage of! We will definitely be back next year!

Absolutely perfect vacation home with a beautiful lake view!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is perfect! We stayed here with our 7 grandchildren for 5 days in June. There was never a dull moment! Everything you could ask for in a home is available to you. There is the obvious...a beautiful, well-decorated home, a canoe, a paddle boat, a hot tub, a quiet beach within walking distance, and of course a spectacular view of Arrowhead Lake from your back door. The children loved running around the backyard playing bean bags and fishing all day long. The adults could actually relax because we could sit on the wrap around deck and watch the children play. The kitchen is well-stocked and the grill works like a charm. The rec room downstairs with a foose ball table was such fun!

Jesse and Wendy are so great to work with. They make you feel like family. Arrowhead Lake Community employees are also very helpful and cordial. I can't say enough about this property to really express our complete satisfaction with our experience. We felt so at home from the first moment we arrived. Don't hesitate to book this property. It is worth every penny!! You won't be sorry!

Amazing home with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Jesse was wonderful with communication from the very beginning. He and Wendy graciously sponsored us at the Lodge for our wedding, and Serendipity was absolutely perfect for our wedding party to stay. Between all the amenities, the friendliness, and the views on the lake, we could not have asked for a better place to stay for our wedding weekend. Thank you so much!

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered here for my mother-in-law's 60th birthday. It was a wonderful weekend location, not far from our home state of Connecticut. We enjoyed grilling outside, playing games, and boating. The kids loved the nearby beach and playground. The view was spectacular and the house was spacious and beautiful. We appreciated everything from the skylights and the comfy beds indoors to the boats and fire pit outdoors. My kids are already asking to go back!
