In the fall, winter and spring you will have the warmth and comfort of a cozy fire with a touch of a button or remote control, gas fireplace. 46' LED TV with Wii, and DVD will help you enjoy your downtime. Plenty of seating in the dining room with 6-7 at the table and 3 at the bar. Create your own meals in the well equiped remodeled kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances.

You will find the view from our 175 square foot deck to be peaceful. Each season brings a new view! There is a dining area and seating area for you to enjoy as well as a new infrared gas grill.

A 42' swivel, LCD TV with PS3/DVD/Netflix makes this a family friendly hangout. This lower level suite is complete with a full bathroom and laundry area which includes 'he' detergent.

Enjoy four seasons of year round activities. In the winter we are .4 miles (many other rentals say it is walkable however it is .4 miles downhill in winter not to mention uphill on the way home) from the Big Boulder Ski Lodge which is open day and night on the weekends and holidays and nightly during the week. You can also enjoy Jack Frost Ski resort is minutes away and Camelback is nearby. All locations also have snow tubing.

About Nicole Salayda

This is our family vacation home.

Nicole Salayda purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Nicole Salayda chose Lake Harmony

We chose this property because of its great location in the Poconos. Close to all the fun things in PA and only a short ride from family.

What makes this townhome unique

End unit townhome with great views of Big Boulder and lake which change with every season. Includes pillows and comforters. We like to think we provided anything you may need but if a question just ask and we will see if we can accomodate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 stars go to Nicole and her husband's property. This was a last minute deal and Nicole was very flexible and accommodating in regards to checkin/out times and payment methods. The house was very clean, neat, the furniture relatively new, and the surroundings very quiet. Nicole was always available and helpful in answering any questions. All in all a 5 star stay. Thanks Nicole and Andy!

Our stay here was great!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was great! The house was extremely comfortable. It served as a great Columbus Day weekend retreat from D.C. We had plenty of room to ensure that the four adults in our party were comfortable. The house is well furnished, spacious, clean and organized. And, fortunately, the furnishings have been well taken care of. Everything in the kitchen was easy to find, labeled and also in good condition. And we were grateful that the owner, Nicole, gave easily understandable and detailed instructions.

Great time in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our long weekend here! The house was terrific and accommodated 6 adults and two children with plenty of space to spare. Boulder Lake and its excellent club was less than a mile away and we spent most of the time there.

Would definitely recommend and hope to make it back ourselves some day.

Nicole Salayda's Vacation home in the Poconos

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay in this upscale property. The home slept 10 as advertised. It was clean. The kitchen was up to date. There was a nice deck with a grill. All of the bedrooms had TVs. There were games for the TVs and also board games. The master bath had a Jacuzzi tub. The rental came with passes to the beach club. The club has a pool, beach area and you can rent kayaks, paddle boards. There was a restaurant associated with the beach club. The beach club was within walking distance. The home comes with 2 parking spaces.

There is a lot to do in the area. You are close to hiking, biking, outlet shopping and indoor water parks.

We enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the home. Nicole was pleasant to work with.

Amazing vacation and amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with another family and in total there were 9 people! (4 adults and 5 kids) As we prepared for the long weekend in the mountains, the communication from the home owner was incredible. The home was SO clean and much larger than we expected. All 9 of us fit in the home with lots of extra room! We had an amazing time and so many memories were created! In regards to the home owner, I can’t say enough positive things about them!!! We have rented a lot of places over the years and this was the easiest and best experience we have had. The communication before, during and after our stay was well above expectations, the home was spotless (SO clean), instructions for check in and check out were easy and explained in detail, and the atmosphere/location of the home was just perfect! We shared so many smiles and the laughter echoed through the home, so thank you Nicole for such a great experience! We will absolutely rent this place again in the future!!!
