About Anya

Our family fell in love with Lake Harmony after visiting it in summer of 2011. We love the neighborhood, swimming in Lake Harmony, and skiing at the numerous local ski resorts.

Since we are still working full-time, we decided to share the home with travelers, hoping they would enjoy it just as much as we do. However, we do hope to retire here in the coming years and share it with our kids and grandkid(s).

We had an option to sign our house into some big real estate company rental program but decided against it, and currently our daughter, Anya is working with all guests. While a rental company provides guaranteed revenues and no hassle, we want to know who lives in our home and look forward to establishing repeat customers through attention to detail. We have filled the home with our art and will continue to invest in its coziness and comfort.

Your comments and feedback on how we can continue to improve the home and encourage you to vacation with us will be highly appreciated.

The Kroupnik Family Welcomes You!

Anya purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Anya chose Lake Harmony

Unlike the many Lake Harmony properties run by large real estate management companies, we are a family that love and take care of our home. There are special touches such as paintings, various accessories, and books and games that makes guests feel at home. You will enjoy this home like we do!

What makes this chalet unique

This home is positioned with a direct view of the slopes- beautiful in every season. Our home is far off of the street and both decks face the woods, not the street. This is a perfect getaway home from the hustle and bustle of the city!

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We went away for a girls weekend. We are all Mom's and do our getaway once a year. This was our first time in Lake Harmony. The house had enough room for all of us. The back deck was the main hang out place. There is a brand new hot tub too! It was close to the lake and all the main hot spots. The house was clean and the downstairs had a pool table, foosball table and air hockey. We would rent again.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for an adult getaway and a family getaway. The house was amazing. Brand new huge hottub was such an nice feature! Bottom Floor was a great party room to play games and hang out. The deck was our favorite place to relax and enjoy the view and pocono air. As for location....the lake was so close, the restaurants were 2 minutes away. Great nightlife!

Thanks again Anya and family for a wonderful stay!

The "girls getaway" crew!

Not what it was advertised as!

  • 1 of 5

Pictures on VRBO must have been taken 10-15 years ago! The place is worn out, and very dirty. The entire house smells musty and moldy.

The gas grill and burners are so encrusted with grease and dirt, it took 45 minutes to cook burgers, and that was after we spent 30 minutes trying to clean it. The dials on the grill just spin around. We had to light it with matches, as the igniter does not work either! The "2 full tank of propane" were empty and we had to go out and get one filled before we were able to cook.

We paid extra for bed linens and towels ($200.00 extra) and we did not get washcloths. We bought some when we went to get the propane.

The "full" kitchen has barely any cookware.

There was no TV cable service as advertised, so we could not watch anything late at night after our daytime excursions.

One of the showers is only tall enough for a child, so we couldn't use it, as we were all average size adults.

We made the best of it, but would never recommend this rental to anyone!

Owner's Response: Dear Mary, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our home. I apologize for the dirty grill, it was missed. A serious conversation took place with the manager of our cleaning service.  We specifically bought a top of the line Weber grill in April 2016 so that our guests can enjoy the outdoor grilling experience. There is no excuse for a dirty grill.    Musty smell does happen in Pocono houses around this time of the year. And probably nothing can be done. This smell happens when the house is empty for a week, but it goes away after a few hours of opening windows/doors and/or turning on fans/air conditioning. Any Pocono homeowner or realtor can confirm this.  They even have a special word for it: "The Pocono smell". The house is all above ground, which helps; and, 6 months ago we also removed old carpets from the ground floor and installed new floors to alleviate this problem.    The "shower for kids" is in the top floor bedroom that does not have space for a full size shower, but we decided to install it, because we felt it is important to have 3 full bathrooms in the house. This is my parent's bedroom; yet my father, who is 6' tall and not of slim build, has not had any issues fitting into the shower. This may be due to the fact that he loves the house and goes there whenever it is not rented, so it does not bother him. Throughout the many years of owning the house, this is the first complaint we have ever received about it being an issue.  Best, Anya For anyone reading this review- please feel free to reach out to be directly or see other review for reference purposes.

Great, as expected

  • 5 of 5

Anya is a great landlord and runs her property professionally and well: we met her grounds/property keeper and she's fantastic! The layout is ideal for entertaining groups (we had 12 people) while still having little areas to get away and enjoy some time alone. Everything went smoothly and we were very happy with our time at her place and would consider it again! My nieces loved blowing bubbles off the deck! If you have younger kids you'll want to drive to the beach (2 mins?) versus walking. It's a bit hilly.

Something to keep in mind is that as it stands (Aug 2016) the property is a little bit worn from being a professionally rented property: deck could be stained, basement floors and gaming tables have obvious use. If you've rented a bunch of places, don't let this deter you. This is in MUCH better condition than most units. BUT, if you're looking for a pristine property on the upper level of luxury, you might want to keep looking. My opinion is you won't find better for this number of bedrooms and price range in Lake Harmony. We knew what to expect and were quite happy: set your expectations accordingly as we did and you'll have a great time. Highly recommended!

My brother wants me to share that he beat the Mortal Kombat game in the basement and challenges you to beat his high score.

Very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

Six adults and 3 grandsons, aged 3 to 8 years old, had a great time. The house was clean and comfortable. We all had fun in the game room throughout our stay. The house was convenient to swimming, boating, fishing, and a nearby water park. The boys were wowed by a herd of deer on our walk to the lake. Very enjoyable.
