Emerald Lakes chalet description

Cozy Lakefront in the heart of the Pocono mountains that offers the perfect mix of relaxation, fun and nature! Within 7 short miles of Camelback Skiing, Camel Beach Water Park and Camelback Mountain Adventures, Mt Airy Casino, Pocono Raceway, Tannersville Crossing Shopping Outlets, many State parks and hiking trails, fine dining and supermarkets. Jack Frost/Big Boulder is only 20 minutes away. Swim, fish and play right out the back door or jump in the canoe or take the kayak for a spin, sit around the fire pit, play in the game room or just relax and take in the views from all lounge points in and out of the home (there are many). Even the cook has wonderful views.
The A-frame design, coupled with the open floor plan between the main kitchen, dining and living areas, offers maximum benefits: sharing memories with your family and friends while experiencing a Pocono mountain hideaway. Our home is designed to take you away from your everyday. All new comfortable and quality mattresses, hardwood floors, appliances and new gas stoves that operate with a flick of a switch. Also includes a First level kitchenette (stove, microwave, small refrigerator), giving our guests greater convenience and options to vacation with friends and family. There are lots of supplies on hand for our littlest guests: high chair, booster seat, pak n'play, baby gates, toys, games and books for kids.
You can take comfort in the fact that your vacation rental is regularly maintained and professionally cleaned prior to your arrival.

Located in Emerald Lakes community, this lovely three story Chalet can sleep up to 9 guests. Our private community offers an indoor and outdoor pool, beaches, community clubhouse, sauna, basketball and tennis sports courts. Besides our lakefront, there are 4 other lakes for swimming, fishing, kayaking or canoeing and all in walking distance from the home. The outdoor pool is a couple doors away.

Check out Camel Beach Water Park or Ski or Snow tube their slopes. Shop the Crossings Outlets or test your luck at Mr. Airy Casino, both are close by. Dine at one of the many restaurants in the area or enjoy a meal in, the house is close to many supermarkets.

We put together a 'Things to Do in the Poconos' book and a 'Local Hikes & Local Preserves' book w/ trail directions, info etc. to give you ideas.... if you want to leave the house!

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: My husband and I, and our three kids, love the Poconos! We enjoy spending time together, hiking, kayaking, fishing, swimming, relaxing... anything to be together and away from the complexities of life .

                      Why the Owner Chose Emerald Lakes:
                      It is directly on the water, the house is steps from the water and the views are unobstructed and beautiful. It is a quick drive in the car to what feels like a different universe.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      The shape and feel of the house is an experience. And it's peaceful, yet close to everything ... our favorite parks, mountains, the pool is walking distance from our home, as is a beach, and I like scenic variety... and can take my kayak and go to all the lakes in the community. The outlets are 10 minutes away (I'm always up for good shopping).
