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.
We are located in Locust Lake Village - one of the few communities in the Poconos that does NOT charge guest parking fees AND provides 8 Guest Passes for use of community amenities at NO COST to you!
Our 2,800 sq. ft., luxuriously furnished home is beautifully decorated, 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 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 Blueray 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 propane grill for your use. The fully updated kitchen features newly installed granite counters, updated appliances, 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. 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 6 person HOT TUB! Enjoy gorgeous lake views from the hot tub!
There is a 5th 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.
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 kayak, 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. 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.
