Overview

About the property

5 Beds, 3 Full Baths, 2,700 Sq Ft, Sleeps 14

Welcome to our exquisite lakefront home in the mountains! Although we rent on a limited basis, we call this a home; because it’s a place we spend a lot of time making memories with family and friends. The benefit to you, our potential guest, is that you will be staying in a well cared for house that truly feels like a home... not a rental. We rent to responsible couples/adults, and families who will treat our home with care. We do not allow events, large parties or prom groups). Please note, the minimum age for renting our home is 27 years & older.

Our 2,700 sq. ft., luxuriously furnished home is professionally decorated and sleeps 14, and is located in a very private setting. Please read on for a detailed description of our home.

The upper level features a large, open-concept living space, with living room, dining room, and custom kitchen. Beautiful, vaulted pine ceilings, and field stone propane fireplace give the living area a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Two large leather sofas, combined with a massive dining table with seating for 10, and 4 bar stools in the kitchen, allow ample space for everyone to gather. The living room has a 55” flat screen TV with Direct TV and DVD player. Two oversized sliding glass doors provide gorgeous lake views and open up to an expansive deck overlooking the lake. On the deck there is a dining table and chairs for 8, plus a brand new gas grill to enjoy. The fully updated kitchen features newly installed granite countertops (2017), new Kohler sink & faucet, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, wine cooler and a large island with seating for 4. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need!

Also on the upper level is a full bath that is open to the living area and the “children’s” bedroom. This bedroom features a twin-over-twin bunk bed and a full bed; it is beautifully decorated in a nautical theme. Across the hall is the large master bedroom with lovely king bed. The master bath features updated tile and new vanity & mirror.

The lower level includes a family room with a 46” flat screen TV, an electric fireplace & an electronic dartboard. The room has a large bay window with breathtaking views of the lake. It also has pocket doors so it can be closed off from the rest of the house, providing extra sleeping space and privacy if desired.

Two spacious bedrooms down the hall have new queen beds and large sliding glass doors, which provide stunning lake views and open onto the large lower-level deck. This deck has a table and chairs for four, two chaise loungers, and a 6 person HOT TUB! Enjoy gorgeous lake views from the hot tub!

There is a fifth room in the lower level that includes a 2-person sauna, and provides access to the laundry room. This room has a full bed and a twin-over-twin bunk bed.

The lower level has a full bath that has been completely renovated, with tile shower and walls, and Kohler fixtures.

And the best part of the property is… the lakefront. Step off the lower-level deck into the gorgeous wooded yard, which allows for beautiful lake views, but maintains privacy at the same time. Follow the lighted, level, rock path down to the lake. Sit at the lake’s edge and enjoy total privacy. Relax on your own private beach and dock; swim in the crystal-clear, shallow water or sail away on the canoe, row boat, or pedal boat available for your use. The lake is extremely quiet as it is limited to electric motors only. It has great fishing. Delight in the majestic sight of bald eagles and blue heron flying over the lake. And on top of all this, our home has SUNSET views! End your day by watching spectacular sunsets as they reflect off the lake! After the sun sets, start a fire up in the lakeside fire pit and enjoy the amazing, glass-like lake at night, and the sight of countless stars above.

We are very family friendly (we have small children ourselves). There is a play set on the property with swings, glider and slide, as well as toys and books, a pack & play, and booster seat with tray.

Our home is located in Locust Lake Village. This community includes 4 lakes, 3 with white sandy beaches, lifeguards, snack bar, playgrounds and picnic areas in the summer. Skiing can be enjoyed at our association slope; it has a T-bar operation and skiers can warm themselves in the adjacent Chalet. Ice-skating and ice fishing are available at designated lakes, and there is a designated sledding hill. Other recreational facilities in the community include: baseball, basketball, shuffleboard, bocce ball, volleyball, horseshoes, and 4 tennis courts. The community also boasts some of the best fishing in the Poconos. You can visit the community's website here: http://locustlakevillage.org

Our home is conveniently central to all Pocono Mountain attractions: 10 minutes to Jack Frost/Big Boulder Ski Resort, which has tubing, skiing, and snowboarding. The brand new Kalahari Indoor Water Park is a 15 minute drive. Split Rock Resort is 10 minutes away, and features the indoor H2ooooooh water park, mini golf, a movie theater, and more. NASCAR Pocono Raceway is less than 15 minutes. Camelback Ski/Water Park, the 100-store Tannersville Outlets, and Mt Airy Casino are all under 20 minutes away. Horseback riding, hiking, state parks, ATV rentals, paintball, kayaking, whitewater rafting, zip lining, golfing, antiquing, and wineries are all within 10-20 minutes. For a longer day out, head over to the historic town of Jim Thorpe, or even to Sesame Place or Hershey Park. This is the perfect getaway for numerous activities any season of the year!

About Allison Foley

My husband and I purchased this home in 2014 and have been pouring our hearts into making it our dream vacation home. We have done many, many updates and improvements over the past few years. We fell in love with this property right away and have been cherishing our moments here, making memories with our small children and extended family and friends.

Why Allison Foley chose Pocono Lake

We chose this property because of the lakefront! It is gorgeous and we love the sunset views and afternoon light on the beautiful lake. We love how clear the water is and that our little ones can just wade right in. The kids have such a blast playing in the sand, going in the water, and fishing on the dock. The main living area of the home, being open and spacious, with pine vaulted ceilings, was another big draw. As well as having plenty of bedrooms for extended family. The fact that there is year-round recreation available, and that the home is centrally located, is another huge plus.

Great!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just super. Wonderful view of the lake and extremely well stocked.

Even the beach was wonderful if you have smaller children. The one thing I would have liked would be a bar in ONE of the bathrooms. I am older and if I have nothing to hold on to in the shower it is scary. Everything was in good working order. We all had such a great time I am going to talk to the owners about renting next year for the same time slot Weather was also great Just 1 day cool and damp.

Pictures don't do it justice, this house and property is perfect and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the most perfect place to throw a surprise 30th birthday weekend for my boyfriend and our 13 other friends. There was enough room for everyone to sleep IN BEDS and no one felt on top of each other. All the bedrooms are nice and beds are super comfy! The kitchen/dining area and deck is where we spent most of our time when we weren't down by the dock. There's a beautiful living room with comfy couches and a big screen smart TV but we didn't even use it!

We went Memorial Day weekend so it wasn't super warm. But we spent each day hanging out on the dock and using Alison and Sean's boats they provide! (The paddle boat was my favorite) There was also a rowboat and a canoe. There was a shed filled with lots of foldable chairs to sit on the dock, enough for a

everyone!

After we'd make dinner on the grill every night we built a fire in the fire pit! There was tons of fire wood on the property, but it was wet from previous rain so we bought our own starter log. The hot tub was also a major plus!

I highly highly recommend this property to large groups of friends and families. You truly can't beat it, it has everything to offer and Allison is super helpful and attentive. I asked her about 900 questions while getting ready for this weekend and she quickly answered every one. Hoping to make this a tradition and come back again!

Wonderful for a lovely weekend getaway. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a weekend getaway with eleven ladies and we had a blast. The house is beautiful and very accommodating. The owner Allison is a dream to work with when booking your trip. All restaurants and skiing resorts are only 15 mins away. I highly recommend Allison's home for a nice getaway with friends and family. Thank you Allison!

Beautiful Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

Allison was very responsive to all my questions. The house was beautiful! Right on the lake and the view was amazing. My favorite part of the trip was probably the fire pit. We sat down at the fire pit all night - Ahart Market sells firewood. Very clean and nice decorations too. The house was close to the beer & food market as well. I would definitely recommend staying at this lakefront home.

Beautiful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything seen in the pictures and more! The view was breathtaking. The house was very clean and well stocked with anything we needed. The owners were responsive with any questions we had. Everyone we stayed with was very comfortable. There was plenty of space and things to do in the area. We definitely utilized the hot tub! The house was perfect for entertaining a large group.
