About Louise Zimmerman

My Grandfather build our home on the lake about 60 years ago..We all have enjoyed being being able to share our home over the years....Because of recent passing of family members I have become the sole owner now...I recently started leasing my home because of the decline in the economy makes it difficult to be able to afford the costs of up-keep and taxes, etc..I hope my visitors will take great care of my family home as we did throughout our lives..

Why Louise Zimmerman chose Lake Harmony Area

Lake Harmony has been a beautiful retreat for our family to share for many decades..We have a very quaint, tight knit community at the lake..Many of us have lived here a long time in which we passed down our homes for many generations..Lake Harmony is one of the first established lake communities in the Pocono mountains..You will feel heart-warming upon entering our community!

What makes this house unique

My home consists of all hardwood floors and walls made of knotty pine..We spend alot of time on the front sun-room in Summer as well in the Winter...We have a glimmer of the lake located across the street...Our property consists of huge Hemlock trees, rhododenderon trees, mountain laurel. ferns, etc...The deer are soo tame here you can hand-feed them out in the back yard! They come begging anytime, day or night...Don't forget to bring some extra snacks for them..I also provide corn on the back porch for them..It doesn't get any better than this!!!....I promise!!

The pictures really don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had considered some more modern alternatives but settled on here because we wanted a real cabin experience. We were far from disappointed.

The first thing you notice when you walk through the front door is that the place simply radiates rustic charm. You can tell it's a cabin with real history, and that adds a lot to the atmosphere. Louise has also done a tremendous job of keeping it clean and well-maintained.

The kitchen is fully stocked, which was great for us since we ended up doing all the cooking there. We spent most of the time alternating between cooking, playing board games, and telling stories out by the fire pit in the back. It's worth noting that while we were there Louise had some piles fire wood in the garage that you could buy instead of having to run out to the store. They went completely unnoticed until the last night we were there.

There are quite a few shops within walking distance, all of which are locally owned. You'll have to venture a little further out if you're looking for produce, but they've got pretty much anything else you might need.

Louise herself was a pleasure to rent from. She's friendly, honest, and really rather generous. She came by at one point to collect the payment and we all just fell in love with her. I'm sure we'll be looking to rent again next year.

Oh, and it's true. The deer really do eat out of your hand.

Cozy place, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here! The house is located right across from the lake with many restaurants and shops in walking distance. The highlight is the deer that come to visit you in the serene backyard, allowing you to feed them out of the palm of your hand. Very exciting for animal and nature lovers! Also, the pool table and dart board in the game room are a fun way to pass the time with family or friends, and the fire pit in the backyard is perfect for roasting marshmallows. We had a great time making smores!

The owner is great to work with and very quick to get back to guests in need of anything. I would recommend this rental to families or to couples traveling together, there is a lot of room to spread out here and enjoy!

Perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Before renting this home, I never stayed anywhere but a hotel when I traveled because for whatever reason, the idea just made me nervous. However, for my husband's recent birthday I wanted to do something a little different, so I figured I would give it a try & rent a home for us to spend a long weekend in - I'm so glad I did!

I was looking for a place that was a bit on the rustic side, dog friendly, and close to a lake. Louise's home fit the bill perfectly! The home was a bit larger than what we needed (it was just us & our dog), but the price was so reasonable - and there were so many amenities beyond just space - that I couldn't NOT book it.

Re: location, it was perfect. The home is right across the street from Lake Harmony, and we had access to the dock so that we could go boating (love that Louise supplied a variety of boats to use!) We were able to walk to a number of local bars/restaurants, but if we felt like driving, we could hit a bunch of different spots within about 5 minutes (Dollar General, bait store, beer store, etc.). Hickory Run State Park is also close by (maybe 20 minutes), and so is a handful of lakes/streams.

Re: the house itself, my husband & I loved it! It definitely had a rustic feel, and it offered just as much entertainment as the local attractions. We loved that Louise provided board games (& that the basement had a pool table!) for us to use once we were in for the night. The kitchen was stocked with all the cookware/entertainment gear we needed to make meals at home. And the backyard had a pretty perfect set-up - multiple seating areas, a large fire-pit, a grill, and a huge umbrella that came in handy for us on the night it rained - we were able to keep sitting outside without getting wet! (An added perk of the backyard was the curious deer that stopped by for some food - we weren't expecting any to come near us because of our dog, but as soon as we put him in the house for the night, a deer showed up! It was awesome to feed her from our hands with the corn kernels Louise supplied!) The house also came stocked with adventure supplies for us to use - fishing gear, beach chairs, firewood, etc.

Re: Louise, I can't say enough great things! She responded to my multiple questions within about ten minutes each time, and was available during our whole trip in case we had questions or something came up. I had such a great experience booking with her.

My husband & I can't wait to rent this home again!
