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.

Perfect getaway for us

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults and 5 kids ranging from ages 1-5. Our stay was perfect for the Memorial day weekend! There was plenty of space. The layout of the house allowed each family to have their own area for naptime/alone time. And, I didn't need to bring a pack-n-play or a high chair. The fire pit area outside was a great hangout spot for the adults at night when the kids were asleep. We had lunch and/or dinner outside on the deck. During the day, we took a leisurely walk to the park/pool area. Thomas was thorough, accommodating and flexible. He was a pleasure to speak with and helped in making our stay truly relaxing.

We stayed at this property for two nights in Feb 2017, I was there with my sister, total 4 Adults and 5 kids . The kids love it since we get there, specially bc there is a nice game room wich the loved. At time to go to bed , the space were enough for everyone. We went to Montage Mountain for snow tubing and the experience it was BEAUTIFUL. Mr Thomas it was always a big help with any questions that I had , before and during the trip. I highly recommend this place if you're thinking in havin a wonderful family vacation.. PS My Daughter still tell me that she really miss that place, and that she wants to come back to that house!!

Perfect place, location and host

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly what we were looking for in a Poconos retreat. Thomas, one of the owners, could not have been more thorough and helpful. As soon as you pull up you can see that it is picture perfect. Plenty of space for people to sleep. The kitchen, dining room, den has plenty of space and allows for the family to hang out over meals, watch some tv or just sit by the fireplace. You cannot beat the game room downstairs if you have kids or even adults who play Wii. The geographic area is the right mix of not too far from restaurants and other daily destinations but far enough that you can feel like you got away. Great location for all winter activities. We will absolutely be returning. You cannot go wrong with this house any time of the year.

Review for property #3633518 at Lake Wallenpaupack, PA

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time over the New Year weekend. We came up from Baltimore and a couple other family members came over from New York City. The house was very comfortable, clean and easy to find. The kitchen had everything needed for our group to stay in and prepare meals. The game room was a big hit with the kids. The owner was available to answer questions and give us access to firewood. Sunday was an easy trip to Montage Mountain for skiing, snowboarding and tubing. It was a fun weekend and we would recommend this destination to anyone.
