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 (22,18 & 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!!

a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

When I was looking for a property for a weekend getaway with my friends and daughters, I initially was just looking for a place that allowed pets and could accommodate our large group.

It was an added bonus to arrive and find such a fantastic place!!!! This home was conveniently located across the street from playground and had plenty of parking for our group. Inside we felt instantly invited to a nice, warm living space where everyone-including the dog felt like we had visited before :-) The beds were super comfy and there was plenty of space for all to spread out throughout the house.

The kids spent most of their time playing in the playroom with the pool table, ping pong and video games. It was nice to have it on a separate level so the adults could enjoy conversation as well!

I was especially thankful for all of the supplies I needed from the kitchen-every time I thought I forgot to bring something, I opened a cabinet or drawer and it was there. We have rented in the past and there always seemed to be a mish-mash of utensils/glasses/mugs etc but this kitchen was very impressive! Thank you!!!!

Chris and Shelby were easy to work with and very accommodating down to explicit instructions upon check in and check out.

This property was very close to CVS, Grocery store, and not too far from snow tubing. Everyone was in agreement that this will be an annual event

This is truly a home away from home!!!!

Great get-together house for any occasion!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at this house with our families for Christmas. We've used a lot of HomeAway and AirBNB properties, and are often disappointed. But not this time! The house had plenty of space for all the kids, and we loved that it was pet-friendly. The house was in great condition with comfy bedding and towels, and everything was very well stocked. It was decorated beautifully for Christmas so we didn't have to worry about anything! The owners provided clear instructions on everything and were very responsive before, during, and after our stay. We would definitely stay here again, and I highly recommend it!

The perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were looking for equal parts relaxation and activities, and we got both this weekend. First off, the cabin is amazing. It's so beautiful, warm, comfy. Between the spacious living room, the grill area, and the fire pit, we were able to get in some really quality leisure time. We also spent a good amount of time on the tennis courts, basketball courts, and community pool. This rental really had everything we were looking for. It was the perfect choice, and we're already looking forward to booking it again in the (hopefully) near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying. We are excited to hear you were able to use so many of the amenities. The pool, tennis and basket ball courts are so close to the house our family use then all the time too. Glad the fire pit was enjoyable too. We look forward to seeing you again.

Perfect family week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Black Bear Home in celebration of my mom's 60th birthday! The house was gorgeous and spacious for our 6 adults and 2 kids--plenty of space to get away from each other and very good acoustics that let my niece and nephew wake up early, but left this sleepy auntie to snooze. The game room(s) were awesome for rainy days and the fire pit was great for nice nights. A/c worked well and kept us cool, location right by the pool/playground was key, and we love Indian Rocks' nearby lakefronts, too. We even got to do a little kayaking with the house boats! Had a great time, lots of relaxation, and we already can't wait to go back :)
