Lords Valley house description
Defined by woodland seclusion and the natural beauty of its setting, this mountain retreat is an escape from the madding world. Multiple sliding doors and tall windows invite the outside in; a broad, wraparound deck provides plenty of outdoor living space. The recently renovated kitchen adjoins a screened porch; a wood-burning stove with stone hearth in the spacious common living area is the gathering spot on chilly evenings. In addition to two bedrooms and a full bath on the main level, the second-floor loft—accessed via a spiral staircase—has two more bedrooms and a second full bath
As part of Hemlock Farms, a gated community, the house offers a variety of recreational opportunities. Amenities include four lakes, a swimming pool (with lessons provided for children), tennis and racquetball courts, and trails for hiking. Outside the community there are venues for whitewater rafting, horseback riding and paintball. Winter recreation includes skiing, snowmobiling and tubing.
Just a half-mile from the house, the Steer Barn Recreational Center features an Olympic-size indoor pool, fitness center, hot tub, sauna, pool and ping-pong tables. A Teen Center offers chaperoned events for teenagers.
Wood for the fireplace MUST be purchased and is available at the following prices. $50 for 1/4 cord, $75 for 1/2 cord & $150 for a full cord. Please contact James Anderson (570 470-1059)in advance so that the wood can be delivered.

Perfect Retreat House
Perfect Retreat House
We had been searching for a place to go away, relax and retreat for a few days. After searching several places we found this house and let me tell you it was great. The rental process was simple and owner was very amicable, helpful & attentive to our needs. The drive from Philly was good, the scenery was beautiful and the view from the house was awesome. The house is very accommodating & spacious, It has all you need for the weekend stay and if you forgot something the shopping center is only 5 minutes away! (Loved that too) We also loved the fact that it included 6 passes to the community's recreational building where they have a big indoor pool, jacuzzi, steam room & game room. This was a huge plus for us!! We highly recommend this house to everyone, Trust Me, You Will Love It!!

Owner response: So glad you liked it Julio! Thanks for leaving the place in such a clean condition!
We just returned from staying at this rental last week. It was a great place to spend a week in the summer. It was a good location in the community; close to workout facility,pools and beaches. My kids went to the Fawn Hill Day Camp each day which gave my husband and I time to explore hiking outside of Hemlock Farms. There are lots of great waterfalls close by to explore. As for the house, it totally met our needs.The kitchen and bathrooms were updated. I would recommend it for families with kids.

Great Ski Weekend !!!
Great Ski Weekend !!!
Cindy Thank You So Much for all you've done for us. The house was really magic. Especially at night , as if you look from the bottom of the hill and see it all lighten up on top & hidden in the woods (looks like castle) !!! It is really magic. Inside was nice and clean . The brand new kitchen and all the kitchen ware came in handy! The fireplace made it nice and warm. The location of the house is also perfect.. About 3 minutes drive from the main community gate, 5 minutes walk to recreational center. All the grocery , food & pharmacy shopping is just outside the main community gate as well. We had a lot of fun at Ski Big Bear @ Masthope Mountain community , which is only 25 minutes drive from Hemlock Farms(ask Cindy for directions). Ski Big Bear has a great ski trails, brand new lodge, the rental equipment is brand new. Overall the weekend was great. Looking forward to coming back there in the summer. P.S.: Also wanted to mention that it was really easy to deal with Cindy. She has great communication skils. She was always there for us when we needed her. Thanks again.

Perfect fall weekend getaway
Perfect fall weekend getaway
The beautiful fall colors were the perfect backdrop for a stay at this wonderful property. The location gave us the ability to take local walks to explore, as well as to nearby Lake Wallenpaupack and Promised Land State Park. The clubhouse was there if the weather didn't cooperate. The house was large, clean and very homey-and I could see where it would be ideal for all seasons, and would comfortably accommodate a large family. How wonderful to wake up to deer in the front yard! I would highly recommend this property as the perfect place for a Pocono vacation.

The house is very easy to locate once off the highway. It was very close to the recreation center that has the indoor pool, internet cafe, game room, and gym. The house was neat and clean and the kitchen was a delight. Very new and bright. The driveway is steep. Put the car in low and drive slowly. It is a short walk to the cove; very cozy and serene lake. It was a short drive to the beach which is perfect for children. I liked the hot showers and the enclosed porch. We drove to Claws n Paws Zoo. The girls absolutely loved it. We also drove to Apple Valley for dinner. Overall a nice place to stay, clean and comfortable, great kitchen, lots of towels and linens, fully stocked kitchen utensils, short drive to McDonalds and grocery shopping.

About the owner: Cindy Ramsay is both a realtor & mortgage banker in her work life. This home has been in her family for 30 some years. She remembers going there every summer learning to swim & play tennis. She & her family still use the house themselves from time to time.
Why the Owner Chose Lords Valley:
My mother originally chose this house as something different than the beach. She felt it had alot more activities to offer in the private setting of a gated community. We would bring all of our school friends up to the mountain house & teach them to swim, dive, ski & snowmobile. We have very fond memories of this house :)
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The feeling of being in the middle of the woods yet still having the safety of a gated community is one of the unique features of this house. The house is perched high on a cliff with 3 sliding glass doors overlooking the view. The house is far away from the street so there is extreme privacy.
