About Laura

We are newlyweds with an expanding family from the NYC area. We love the outdoors but work in the city. We hope you enjoy our mountain lake home as much as we do!

Laura purchased this house in 2017

Why Laura chose Blakeslee

We love the location and layout of our home! We are close to all the fun things to do in the Pocono Mountains! But more importantly our home has the character of a lake cabin downstairs while having the sunny windows and open concept we were looking for our growing family. We love to have our friends and extended family visit and are looking forward to you joining our clan! We love the community, it is warm, small, and friendly and we have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors through all of the community activities.

I loved having towels and blankets already at the property. I appreciate the kitchen utensils, pots and pans being there and clean. Hot tub was very nice. Pool table was a nice touch. The fact that there was an upstairs and downstairs was nice. Fireplace was great and super easy (gas)

Beautiful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few nights here with friends before a Wedding in the area. The place has a wonderful lodge feel with plenty of space and sleeping quarters. The home is very well kept, with 2 fireplaces, pool table, hot tub, and large deck. Since the weather was cold, we spent most of our time indoors, but there is plenty to do! This is a wonderful place for a relaxing getaway with friends. Would definitely come back. Laura and Jabree were great hosts, friendly, prompt and accomodating. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The lodge was very comfortable. Nice open space. Great place for three couples to share a weekend getaway. Beds (3 queens) were all comfortable. Lots of space downstairs for family with kids to play. The owner was very responsive and provided lots of info about the area.

Absolutely Perfect for our Ladies' Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything from start to finish was just perfect, this place is amazing! Communicating with Laura throughout the whole process has been a dream.

The weather prevented us from taking advantage of the lake and other community amenities, but the house itself was so amazing we didn't miss the outside world. We especially enjoyed the pool table, the grill, and of course the hot tub. There has been a tremendous amount of thought put into this house, and it really shows.

We had a lovely and memorable weekend here, I wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you for your excellent hospitality Laura!

A lovely getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time at time at this fabulous home. The kids loved having a "forest" right outside and then also being able to walk to the lake in a few minutes. The owners gave us such wonderful information about the area and it was perfect being so close to short hikes to waterfalls and the incredible Boulder Field. Every time we remembered something we forgot to pack, we found it conveniently in the cabinets (coffee filters, etc.). The home had everything we could have wanted (adults: cozy fireplace in the evenings; kids: hot tub) and more. Every detail was embracing its cabin nature and it was a wonderful escape from our normal routines. We would highly recommend this place! Thanks.
