About Veronika and John Ackerman

Our family lived in this home for many years and no expense was spared when we totally renovated the home in 2009 and 2010. Often called the "Treehouse" because of the large trees that surround the house.

Veronika and John Ackerman purchased this house in 2009

Why Veronika and John Ackerman chose Beltzville Lake

We chose this house because of it's close proximity to so many activities and we love to take walks and swim at Beltzville Lake. There is complete privacy yet close to many amenities.

What makes this house unique

Our home is unique because it has a resort feel with the large inground heated pool, very unique construction, and priceless views from the large wraparound deck. This isn't your typical rental house!

Great house for large family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Nice and big so it gives the kids a space in the basement area to play while adults can chill on the main floor. Only 20 minutes from Blue Mountain. John was very responsive and nice. Might have to go back when it is time to open the pool!

Great home, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying at this home. Our family had a great time once again. House is very large, plenty of room for the family to spread out, very clean. The deck and pool are magnificent. The owners are terrific, very responsive and get back to you very quickly if you have any questions. Looking forward to returning next year.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have hoped for a better house or better hosts than John and Veronika. The house is huge with plenty of space for everyone to spread out and relax. We spent about 80% of our weekend out by the pool. My group has rented houses once or twice a year for the last five years and this is the first property that we all agreed we must return to. Can't wait for next summer!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome. There was plenty of space for everyone. The pool was very enjoyable and everyone enjoyed swimming. The kitchen had everything we needed. The kids as well as some adults enjoyed the game room. Overall our stay was wonderful and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. A must place to go to was Jim Thorpe, Pa which was only around 8 to 10 miles from the rental house. We never had to contact the owners for anything as everything we needed was there.

Beltzville Lake
Car: necessary

The home is located a short drive (or walk) to Beltzville State Park, which is a 3,000 acre park with a 949 acre Lake and 525 foot long sand beach. You can enjoy excellent trout fishing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, and picnicking at the park. There are also modern restrooms and a concession stand at the park.

Take a short ride to historic Jim Thorpe for shopping, train rides as well as white water rafting, paintball. The small town offers horse drawn carriage rides, endless shopping, great restaurants, and walks along Main Street with historic houses. Several museums and tours are available including the ASA Packer Mansion, The Old Jail tour and ghost walks.

Also nearby are many ski resorts for winter skiing as well as summer water park activities. These include Blue Mountain Ski Resort, Camelback, Shawnee, Big Boulder, Jack Frost, Montage and Alpine Mountain Resort. All resorts are within 30-40 minute drive with Blue Mountain just 20 minutes away.

A must see is Penn's Peak and Roadies Restaurant. Enjoy 50 mile views from the deck while you eat or see concerts and shows at the large theater. Penn's peak is just a 10 minute drive from the house.

The area has a large number of wineries that offer tours and samples. They include Big Creek Vinyard, Galen Glenn, Blue Mountain, Cherry Valley, Mountain View and Vynecrest wineries. Take a tour and visit them all in an afternoon!

It is a short drive to many other attractions including Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom, The Crossings Outlets (100 stores), The Crayola Factory, or the Da Vinci Science Center.
