About Maureen Martino

I was born and raised in Jim Thorpe & Lake Harmony and absolutely love the area, specifically for its beauty, versatility, and history. I currently reside in central North Carolina but travel home as often as possible to visit with family.

For many years, before moving to NC, I lived in the house full time and I must say that I truly miss living there and being amid mother nature’s beauty that she offers throughout all 4 seasons!

Each of my siblings have property in Lake Harmony area as well and they would all agree that no matter how far away from the Lake we eventually settled down, we all always end up gathering at Lake Harmony and will always call it home.

Maureen Martino purchased this house in 2003

Why Maureen Martino chose Lake Harmony

This property was originally a 2-unit concrete block apartment building that I purchased and completely renovated in early 2003.

Renovations included adding an addition to the original structure which now houses the main entry way and foyer area and staircase to the upstairs living area as well as the lower level full bathroom & master bathroom upstairs.

I designed the home to be comfortably, cozy and welcoming to all.

What makes this house unique

This home is on a beautiful property which is very private, nestled in the woods and off the beaten path. There is plenty of parking and the large deck is perfect for grilling dinner or just chilling out in the evening. The gas log fireplace is awesome for keeping warm on a snowy winter night & fire pit is perfect for roasting marshmallows and sharing events from the day with the rest of the family. Don't forget to take pictures of the deer that will most likely appear for a visit to say hello!!

Enjoyable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice last minute find in a good location that was also very private. The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond to any of our requests - we even decided to extend our stay by a day. Be advised though a "gang of deer" will come calling in the morning and evening...:) Very enjoyable stay.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a long weekend in Feb (10-12) and we had a wonderful experience! The home is just lovely, with beautiful touches throughout! Our two children (and dogs!) loved seeing the deer right outside the back door each day and the house is right in the middle of all the activities one would want to enjoy--both Big Boulder and Jack Frost are minutes away and the restaurants are less than half a mile away! We will absolutely be back! Thank you Maureen!

Home was super clean, updated and close to the slopes.

  • 5 of 5

We have been skiing in the Poconos for about 8 years, and this was the most well kept and clean home we have ever stayed in. It was perfect for our family of 4, but it could easily accommodate a couple more people. The decor was very nice and updated. From the granite countertops to the gas fireplace this place did not disappoint. Super close to Big Boulder and about 15 min from Jack Frost. The owner Maureen responded to questions quickly.

We will definitely stay here again.......

Another Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to Maureen's Lake Harmony home, and it was terrific. Our children had a blast with the daily deer visits. The house is perfect for a Pocono family getaway. We love that it is secluded and off of the main road. We plan on coming back in the summer.

Awesome Home and Great location

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I stayed here for a long weekend and we had the Best time. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. The location of the house was great, we were close to the lake & state parks yet it was so peaceful. We had deer that would visit us everyday. Just a great place all round and Maureen couldnt have been easier to work with. We will most definitely be staying here again.
