About Chris & Shelby Clayton

My husband and I are from Southern New Jersey. Even though we are close to the 'Jersey Shore', the crowds were never our speed. We have 3 wonderful children (21,17 & 16) and have raised them to enjoy the serenity of boating and other activities on this beautiful fresh water lake.

Chris & Shelby Clayton purchased this house in 2012

Why Chris & Shelby Clayton chose Poconos

After vacationing for years at Lake Wallenpaupack, we knew this is where we wanted to retire. We are not quite at the retirement point but we will live here full time one day!

We hope to share our home with our children and their families for years to come.

What makes this house unique

We searched for homes here at the Lake for a quite a while. When we walked into this home and saw such a beautiful open floor plan, with big windows and natural lighting, we knew this was the one for us. The abundant bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, were just icing on the cake. The large parking area certainly makes having family,friends and the boat at the house, a breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop you an email and thank you for a great weekend at your home. You have a beautiful home and it had everything we needed for an enjoyable visit. We had a great time and we look forward to planning our next visit. Thank you again !!!!

Full House

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at the Clayton's home and had such a wonderful time. When I say my family there was a lot of and sisters and dad and significant others and some children.. we filled the house. With that being said there was plenty of room for all of us without being on top of one another. The downstairs game room was perfect for the kids....and the adults as we spent many late nights down there playing Wii. When we weren't downstairs playing Wii we were all sitting around the fire pit. The house has the best location in Indian Rocks as you cant get any closer to the pool. When many people have to drive to the pool we just walked out the door and across the street and at the pool.....very convenient. The beach and access to the lake are just a few minute drive and there is a little restaurant that we were able to walk to from the house...located at the entrance of Indian Rocks. The Clayton's home is clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The pictures do not do the house justice. I would recommend this property to all friends and relatives. On top of a great home, Shelby is just a wonderful person and so easy to set things up with and answered every questions I had. We have already booked our winter vacation and plan on vacationing there again next summer. Shelby thank you!!

Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well decorated for our family Christmas vacation. The rooms were very clean. Very quiet area. Television in almost every room. I do have one thing to say. There is just too much to do when checking out. I understand about taking out the trash but about switching off the hot water and dryer breaker and making sure ever room's thermostat is on 50 and placing the key in a locked box with a code. I just think it's too much things to do especially when they want you to leave@ 10 a.m. Overall my stay was awesome.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 spanning four generations that spent a long weekend at this great vacation home. The house is beautiful, cozy and well stocked. We enjoyed everything from watching the deer each morning to evening campfires. It was great having the pool and playground so close. Indian Rocks was holding their Summer Olympics that weekend so Mimi and her great grandchildren participated in the fun. The owner, Shelby, was very easy to communicate with and quick to respond to any questions. We hope to return to Black Bear again.
