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 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 2,800 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 counters (2017), new Kohler sink & faucet, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, wine cooler and a large island. 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 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 lounges, and a 6 person HOT TUB! Enjoy gorgeous lake views from the hot tub!
There is a fifth bedroom on 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 a 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 15-25 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 Locust Lake Village
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.

Perfect getaway with all the essentials
Despite a chilly weekend, we had an amazing time relaxing at this gorgeous home. As promised, the kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessities to cook dinners for a large group (and the wine fridge in the kitchen island was big enough to chill wine for 14 people for the whole weekend!). Allison made booking and staying in her home so easy and enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub, and relaxed around the fire pit as we watched the sunset over the lake. Five stars, hands down. Thank you Allison!
Excellent Pocono Vacation Rental
This house was perfect for our two-night stay in the Poconos with 10 adults. The spaciousness, cleanliness, and amenities within the house made for a very comfortable weekend spent mostly indoors. The location was perfect with beautiful views of the lake. The owner was very nice to deal with. We hope to be back next year!
We have been coming to the Poconos for several years. This house had everything that we could need. The house was stocked with all of the little things you could think of- tissues, toilet paper, hand soap, just to name a few. The house was very clean and well taken care of. We really enjoyed the design. The eight of us had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Allison was wonderful to work with- from the moment we booked the property till the morning we left. Mother nature decided to visit us on our vacation with a blizzard- making the vacation a little more interesting- but we had a wonderful time regardless. Our group is looking forward to staying at the Lakehouse again next year.
Beautiful house, clean and cozy!
This house exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and comfortable with fantastic views. We did not get to ski as planned due to the rainy weather but we were content to stay in and play games and spend time with family. The owners were very easy to work with and quick with responses to my questions. We would love to come back again in the future!
Beautiful Home, pack your toothbrush, b/c almost everything else is provided! Spacious, clean, well stocked. Nice Hot tub, amazing view! Owner, Allison Very responsive. Nice spot to get away with family & friends!
Perfect girls weekend away!
We absolutely loved this house! It was the perfect size and location for our girls weekend! The open kitchen to the dining room and living room suited our big group for meals and catching up! We all talked about how wonderful it would be to come in the spring or summer and enjoy the lake house even more! A big thank you to Allison for accommodating us!
