Pocono Lake House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8-10, Lakefront!

Welcome to our lake house in the mountains! This is our vacation home, so we treat it with care. We like to believe that because of that, you’ll find it nicer than the rental-only houses available.

Our house is directly on the public beach of the largest lake in our community. You literally walk out of the house, through a short path through the trees, and you’re on the beach! Besides the gorgeous lake, the beach has a playground, picnic tables, and bbqs for everyone’s use.

The 2000 square foot house is clean and modern with a nautical décor, and features brand new hardwood flooring. There are four bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and two full bathrooms (one with a shower/tub, one with a shower stall). One bedroom has a small sofabed so if you’re travelling with children, they can stay with you in your room. We have a large, sunny great room with an 8-person dining table and living room with a wood-burning fireplace and ipod dock. The kitchen is fully equipped with range, microwave, pots & pans, dishes, hand mixer, toaster oven, coffee maker, utensils and more. Sliding doors from the living room lead onto a large uncovered deck overlooking the lake. Doors from the dining room and kitchen lead onto the screened-in porch, with another 8-person dining table. Eat in the clear mountain air! There is a propane bbq on the deck as well for those summer cook-outs!

The top floor has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Downstairs, you’ll find the 4th bedroom (with the sofabed), and the 2nd bathroom. In addition, there is the large family room. Here you’ll find the 42” flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and Netflix. Also a wood-burning stove, an air-hockey table, a game table, and numerous books, board games, and family appropriate DVDs for your enjoyment. We also have high speed wi-fi throughout the house. Sliding doors from the family room lead to the beach, and your own private fire pit! Mmmm . . . s ‘mores . . .

We are family and dog friendly. We have provided a high chair, a pack and play (with an extra thick special mattress, not those thin cardboard ones that usually come with them!), a gate for the stairs, and baby/toddler books and toys. Feel free to bring your furry family members along too! Doggie bed and bowls available. But please note that dogs are not allowed on the beach.

The house is located in the gorgeous community of Locust Lake Village. This community includes 5 lakes, 3 with white sandy beaches and lifeguards throughout the summer. There is a snack bar, playground, and picnic area at each lake. The community has activities and classes planned throughout the year. Other recreational facilities in the community include: A baseball field, a basketball court, shuffleboard, bocci ball, and even its own skiing hill and ice skating. Also, Locust Lake was rated 'Best in the Country Trout Fishing' by Pennsylvania Game and Fish. The Village is surrounded by 21,000 acres of Brady’s State Gamelands—you’re truly in the woods!

Locust Lake is a perfect location to all activities and attractions, all year round. This property is conveniently 10 minutes away from Jack Frost/Big Boulder Ski Resort, which has tubing, downhill skiing, and snowboarding. Split Rock, a 10 minute drive, is a resort with the H2ooooooh water park, mini golf, a movie theater, and more. Camelback Ski/Water Park, horseback riding, paintball, whitewater rafting, golfing are all within 10-20 minutes away, in the Lehigh River Gorge and Hickory Run State Park. The 100-store Tannersville Outlets are also only a 20 minute drive. NASCAR Pocono Raceway and the Mount Airy Casino are also only minutes away! For a longer day out, head over to the historic and quaint town of Jim Thorpe, or even to Philadelphia, Sesame Place, or Hershey Park.

This village is adjacent to a main highway, Route 940, only 5 miles from Routes 80 and 280. It is close to a shopping center containing an excellent grocery store. There are numerous dine-in and take-out restaurants nearby. A short drive down Rt 940 takes you to a shopping center which includes a Wal-Mart and a Lowe’s.

Come enjoy our home and everything the Poconos has to offer.

Family Vacation Made Perfect At This Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this gorgeous house is absolutely perfect, directly off Pine Lake! The house itself is a real home away from home. We take a family vacation together every year with kids and grandkids. This is the first time ever that we actually used the items in the kitchen. Opening the cabinets here was like opening them at home...very clean! The dining table was large enough to accommodate all of us and there were also enough chairs for us to have our meals together.All the beds were very comfortable. It was a great bonus that linens were supplied...actually not just supplied...the sheets were on the beds when we arrived!! The washer and dryer appear to be brand new and large. What a bonus when traveling with kids!!

Outside the fire pit is almost right at the beach and Matt the owner was sure to have a hose available for us per Locust Lake regulations. Right outside the yard is the playground area and beach. Pine Lake has an inflatable iceberg for the kids to climb and jump into the lake. There's also a spacious front deck with the full lake view. And a large screen room on the side with two picnic tables. This came in very handy during a couple evening showers.

From start to finish working with Matt was a great experience!! We will definitely be back!!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Kids loved the beach and it's location right out back was super convenient. We saw a deer and turkeys right in the yard and caught a 4lb bass in the lake. We finished each night with smores in the fire pit. The house was clean and nicely decorated. The memory foam mattress was a dream to sleep on. The fast wifi and Internet was awesome!

Nice family getaway :)

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 2 toddlers stayed here for a long weekend. Snow remained on the ground and the lake was frozen over so although we did go out for some walks, we spent alot of time inside, hanging out together. With two sitting areas (the upstairs living room and the downstairs play room/family room), we were able to spread out nicely. We enjoyed a couple of fires in the upstairs fireplace...made it cozy as we all relaxed!

The home was clean and had all the supplies we needed (aside from food). With the cold weather, we did not have to pay any "beach tag/amenities" fees. Because of when we were there, there was little traffic, hardly anyone around which made it very peaceful :)

Homeward Bound

  • 4 of 5

The home was perfect for the holiday experience. Grandkids utilized the downstairs where the TV and air hockey table where while we enjoyed the living space upstairs which included a crackling fireplace most of our visit. Bedrooms were a good size and the view was grand, only steps away from the lake. The fact that we were blessed with snow our entire visit only added to the holiday.
