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!

Perfect rental spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our group loved this house! The heated pool was great and we used it every day, went whitewater rafting nearby, and had a great time on our last day just watching movies, exploring the nearby area on foot, and hanging out in the house playing cards at night.

The photos definitely do not do the rental justice, it was much bigger than we expected and was very well kept and really had everything you needed! The bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable, and even the sun room was nice to take an afternoon nap in. The balconies are a nice touch and it was great to all sit around the pool or balcony chatting.

We hope to come back next year for our annual group get together, as everyone in the group agrees that it was the best house we've rented so far!

We didn't have to contact the hosts at all because there were no problems. The manual they leave you really gives you everything you need to know, including some local spots to check out. Thank you again for letting us use the place!

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!

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.
