About Roy and Jennifer Minnix


We are Roy and Jennifer Minnix and want to thank you for taking an interest in our home. We recently just purchased the home and look forward to assisting you in making this a wonderful vacation!

A little about us...

We live in New York, right outside of New York City. We have three wonderful children and understand the importance of getting away from it all. Whether it's relaxing with a good book or creating lasting memories with your family, we know you will find that peace here in the Big Bass Lake community.

Roy and Jennifer Minnix purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Roy and Jennifer Minnix chose Poconos

We chose this home not only because it can comfortably accommodate a large group of people, but most importantly because of it's location. The Big Bass Lake community offers an abundance of activities for all ages. From our backyard, walk two minutes on a guided path through the woods to the outdoor heated pool, clubhouse, various courts, playground and recreational center. Within a 20 min drive, you have access to some of the best skiing, golfing and outdoor activities the heart of the Poconos has to offer!

What makes this chalet unique

Recent upgrades to the home include new carpet all throughout the upstairs, additional cable outlets with tv's, free wi-fi and high speed cable internet, and a new water heater.

Beautuful area

  • 3 of 5

This is a good place for a lot of people of all ages. The area is beautiful and the house had everything we needed. Many of the older people would have liked a lot more lighting in all of the rooms. It was nice that so many little things like toilet paper, dish soap and towels and trash bags were provided.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this vacation rental. Jennifer is great to deal with. She replied to my inquiry promptly, and the process to rent the home was very smooth. Upon arrival, I found the house to be everything as advertised. The house itself is very clean and well maintained. There is everything you could want in the home, as far as dishes, silverware, cookware, towels, blankets, pillows, pantry items, a grill, and more.

The location is great. It's a short walk to the clubhouse, where there's an outdoor pool and tennis courts. The wooded area surrounding the house is very nice.

The lake is also very nice. You can drive there, but it's also a nice walk. We went boating and hung out around the lake, which was very fun!

I would definitely recommend this vacation house to anyone. My friends and I were all in our 20's, but I believe it would be a nice house for adults and families alike.
