About Thomas and Sandra

My wife and I enjoy boating, camping, paintball, and white water rafting. For me, an occasional skydive hits the spot. After many years of travel to the Poconos, we purchased the home to be in the middle of all the action. Our family enjoys extended stays and an opprtunity to 'get away from it all'. Our kids enjoy the frequent sightings of wildlife, including deer, frogs and woodpeckers.

Thomas and Sandra purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Thomas and Sandra chose Poconos

Easy access to local roads, interstate 84, and area attractions. Only minutes to access the shoreline. Calm 'no wake' waterfront areas abound, perfect for kayaking, fishing or swimming.

What makes this chalet unique

Wonderful sunrises and warm glows through out the morning hours.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home for our family vacation. It fit our family (8 adults 2 children) perfectly. The house is beautiful and the 2 decks are perfect for hanging out and eating meals. The kids loved going to the pool and there is a very affordable marina in the campground right down the road. We couldn't have been happier with this home not only for all the great amenities but you can't beat the price! Would highly suggest this home!!

Enjoyed our stay @ Indian Rocks

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family had a good time staying together in this house, age range 2 to 56. Our 6 yr old grandson liked the game room. Our granddaughters 2 & 3 liked playing around the large coffee table. The kitchen had necessary items to cook meals. We all enjoyed making smores & mountain pies over the fire. There were plenty of family-oriented things to do locally; biking, hiking, boat tours, swimming, fishing, ect. This house is only a 5 minute walk from Lake Wallenpaupack. I was pleased that we didn't have to bring linens & towels from home and that there was a washer & dryer avaliable. The house is well maintained, neat & clean. I would recommend this house to anyone who enjoys vacationing in a wooded area. Kim S, PA

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described and perfect for our large family. It had all the necessary amenities and was clean and welcoming. The deck and beautiful wooden tables were great for dinners in the evening following by time to relax around the campfire. The beds were clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the hospitality of the owner and their quick response to the few questions we had. The lake is a great place for fishing and family fun. We also enjoyed how quiet and peaceful the community was. We would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the area.

A New Yrs stay was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for New Yrs for a few days. It was a perfect place for a getaway. The chalet was extremely clean. The carpeting is in perfect condition. There is no musty smell even in lower level. The beds are comfy. They are memory foam mattresses. The owner was always a phone call away if we had any questions. It was winter so we didn't get to use pool in development but we did go for a walk . We saw some deer laying around in people's yards. Overall I recommend this property especially if you have kids. The lower level is a teens dream. Video games, air hockey, and wii games.
