Lake Agmar house description

Sorry--booked for the summer, but please check the calendar for any September or fall dates!
The pool is open through the end of September (and we have a passive solar heating system that raises the water temperature about 5 to 8 degrees). As of June 9th, the temp is already at 75 degrees--and it goes up fast with sunny days, usually staying at 80 to 85 in the summer!

This is one of the only lakefronts with an inground pool that we know of! This great home is newly renovated with great views of the lake--and in the off season, we lower our prices and charge by group size--so it is affordable for even a couple for a weekend getaway!
We will take up to 8 if it is a family with children, but the house is really not large enough for 8 adults.
Very nicely furnished with a roomy master bedroom and full kitchen, this home has great lake views from 2 bedrooms and the kitchen (with sliding doors to the full deck). There is a quiet high efficiency Mitsubishi in wall A/C unit that does the whole floor, so no heat wave worries! In addition to the inground pool, you also have the use of your own dock with 2 boats (life jackets provided) and a private firepit with a picnic table right by the lake. We are on Lake Agmar, an approx 25 acre lake (no motorboats) with great fishing---mostly sunnies and large mouth bass. The lake is within 5 miles of the Poconos exit of the PA Turnpike, and within 2 miles of Route 80 (White Haven exit), so it is easy to get to, and has no backroads driving. We are also very close to the town of White Haven, so you do not have to travel far for a food store, gas station, drugstore, liquor store, pizza, restaurants, etc. We are right off Route 80 in White Haven (by the Powerhouse restaurant), and close to the PA Turnpike Pocono exit---so you will not spend all your vacation time driving!

More about the house---this is a modern home with an upgraded kitchen with quality cookware, brand new furniture including an 55' LED TV with upgraded cable and a collection of recent DVDs. One of the bedrooms also has a 37' flat screen TV. And we recently added a very roomy master bedroom (king bed) with a large private bath. That bedroom has a large (78' x 60') window overlooking the lake, so you can really enjoy the view! We have broadband internet (so don't forget your laptop--cables are set up already for you). If you bring your own wireless router, you can have Wifi. The large deck overlooks the pool and the lake, and is the perfect place for morning coffee, a romantic nightcap, or any outdoor meal when the weather is warm enough. It was designed so no other homes can see you while you are on the deck, so you will have privacy.
We are near the Lehigh Gorge Trail and Hickory Run State Park for hiking or biking. You can spend a day exploring lovely Jim Thorpe (Switzerland of Pennsylvania), and save money by cooking at the house, either in the new kitchen or using the grill on our full deck overlooking the lake. But if you want to go out to eat, there are plenty of restaurants in the area, ranging from hamburger hangouts to special occasion dining.

H2OOO indoor water park, horseback riding, outlet shopping and the Mohegan Sun Casino are all within a half hour (or less) drive. Great special occasion restaurant (or just for a nice lunch or dinner) less than 5 minutes away. Click the link on this site for the Powerhouse restaurant. You can even enlarge the directions map and find Lake Agmar (our location). We are located near the Pocono exit of the PA Turnpike, right off Route 80 just outside the town of White Haven. If you want to find Lake Agmar on Mapquest, look for the intersection of 940 and Lakeside Road in White Haven, 18661.

There are loungers and other chairs around the pool for sunning, in addition to outdoor furniture and a top of the line stainless steel grill on the very roomy deck. Only 2 steps out front to get into the house, so it is easily accessible for those who have difficulty climbing stairs. There is a driveway that holds 2 cars and an additional space for one car in front of the house on the street.

This house is perfect for a romantic weekend or base for a frugal or sensible honeymoon, a girls' getaway, or just a quick vacation for singles or couples with pets (We have found pet owners to be very responsible, and pets love all the roaming room out back). But since this is a smaller house, we allow only 2 dogs at most.
We do not rent to young groups (proms, etc.). There is a $300 security deposit and an optional $75 cleaning fee. If you leave the house as clean as you received it, there is no cleaning charge. And this house was designed to be easy to clean and keep clean!

When the pool is closed in the spring and fall, you can still enjoy the lake, boats and firepit, and the rental price goes way down!

PLEASE NOTE!!! For YOUR protection, we only accept payments by check sent to our home address (not a PO Box), through Paypal, or by cash paid directly to us--only at check in! And we never, ever ask for a wire transfer or use MoneyGram--there are scammers trolling VRBO sites who ask for payments through them.
