Lake Agmar house description
Sorry---the pool is closed for the winter and spring, but we still are lakefront with a dock and boats, a private lake view, and a firepit for those chilly fall evenings! And we charge by your group size until mid May--this is our off season, but our low prices are even good through winter skiing time, so why stay in a cramped hotel room when you can have the comfort and ambiance of a lakefront home! We are close to Jack Frost and Big Boulder, right off Route 80 in White Haven (by the Powerhouse restaurant).
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. 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.
Skiing, water park, horseback riding, outlet shopping and the Mohegan Sun Casino are all within a half hour (or less) drive. There is even an indoor water park (H2000) at Split Rock, which is about 10 miles away. 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.
For next summer vacationers, this is one of the only lakefronts with an inground pool that we know of! 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.
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.
We have great off season prices! This house is perfect for a romantic weekend, 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 medium sized dogs at most.
Now the rules---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, you can still enjoy the lake, boats and firepit, and the rental price goes way down!
We charge by the group size from the beginning of October until Memorial Day (only New Years Eve is extra). Here are the prices:
2 people---$300 a weekend (2 or 3 nights) or $500 a week
Or take the 4 nights midweek for the same price as a weekend!
3 or 4 people--$400 a weekend or $600 a week
5 or 6 people--$500 a weekend or $700 a week
Up to 2 younger children can stay for no additional price
Sorry, but the house is really not large enough for 8 adults.

My family and I (5 of us and 1 child) spent 4 wonderful days at this home. Everything was perfect! Owner was extremely helpful and easy to work with. Master suite was HUGE (mattresses were nice in all 3 rooms) Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Outdoor area including deck was peaceful...use of boats was great! We will be back next year!!!

My husband and I and our two young children have been renting this property for years. The place is immaculate on the inside and very well maintained on the outside as well. The swimming pool is a bonus for a house that offers just the amount of peace and tranquility that you need. There are many recent improvements to the house which quite frankly was just fine without them but is a testament to how Michael and Celeste are constantly finding ways to make it more appealing and comfortable. I would highly recommed this house!

My husband and I stayed for a week to visit with family. The home is very clean and the beds are so comfortable! We loved sitting out on the deck watching the stars at nite. Everyone enjoyed going out on the boats and riding around the lake and then cooling off in the pool! Michael was very helpful and patient as we were very late arriving there. The boys liked that they had a basketball court just a couple of blocks away and our dogs loved the smells of the deers in the yard! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

DO NOT MISS OUT!
DO NOT MISS OUT!
Totally a relaxing getaway! Home is very comfortable, clean and very well maintained. Enjoy the fall foliage views, spacious backyard, serene lake, boating, fishing and the rabbits! We only missed out on continuing the fun in the pool...to cool. During the summer bring your pool gear it is spacious and you can even dive off the deeper end. Remember a telescope too, watching the shooting stars from the deck was special. Hope to return with our family.

Perfect vacation home
Perfect vacation home
Our family recently returned from vacationing at this home. We had a wonderful time! The home is clean and well maintained. There are a lot of things to do in the area, but the pool was a godsend for those steaming hot July afternoons. We even had the pleasure of watching fireworks from across the lake on a couple of evenings. Michael was great - he met us when we arrived and came back right before we left to return our security deposit. The next door neighbor was also kind enough to bring us some kindling to start our fire in the firepit. We will definitely be coming back! Thanks Michael & Celeste.

My husband and I absolutly loved this home. We did not want to leave. It is beautiful, cozy, quiet, clean, and has everything you need to feel at home. It was certainly our best vacation ever. We just returned home today and already talking about when we want to go again next summer. I would recommend this home to anyone who likes to vacation in the mountains. We also would like to say that Mike (the owner) is so very friendly and was very helpful when needed. Thank you Mike, we will definitly be retuning.

Great family vacation spot
Great family vacation spot
We had the best time at this property. It is VERY quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed gorgeous sun rises over the lake every morning from the deck. We saw wildlife in the yard like deer and rabbits. The pool is pristine and even has a diving board--nice fenced in patio with comfortable loungers. We used the row boat every day for fishing and pedaled around in the pedal boat. Bon fires at the dock every night for relaxing and making s'mores. Our dog had a great time too, relaxing in the huge yard and going out on the boats with us. The house is newly redone , very comfortable and well appointed. We had absolutely everything we needed. We had the best nights' sleep with the plush beds and pillows. Huge closets in the bedrooms for great storage. Large TV with extensive cable channels. We didn't feel the need to leave the property much for outside entertainment since there was so much to do right there. Food stores, restaurants and gas stations are 5 minutes away in town. This is the perfect spot for total relaxation, family bonding, and outdoor fun. We definitely plan to return for another vacation at this location.
