                        I've rented from Tim for a number of years now and always come back. We love the view from this home and the location is perfect for walking to and from the hot spots around the lake. Tim has always gone above and beyond to help us have the best stay ever. The quality of the home is so much better than many others in the area.

                        WOW What a relaxing a FUN place to stay and way a gentleman Tim is! He was super all along the way giving us everywhere to go, do, see and explore. It is clear that he is well loved around town. When we met him, he is this giant of a man but his heart is that of an even bigger teddy bear! He helped us unpack and settle in then wrote out for us a map since our GPS broke. He called ahead to a restaurant and they took great care of us. We had rented another of his homes and then used this one for a wedding. When one of our caterers was running late for a rehearsal dinner and we were starving he surprised us with Pizzas from Nicks. Such a great Chalet but an ever great host. We locked ourselves by accident out of the hot tub screen and Matt one of his engineers showed up in 15 minutes to reprogram the screen. These guys are good! Don't rent from any one else but Tim!

                        Let me start by saying that this is the quintessential chalet that has everything to make it the perfect getaway. Perched on top of the hill, it has a large deck with beautiful views of the valley and Lake Harmony below. The location is the best part about this property - Lake Harmony is the perfect place to be in the Poconos as it is in the middle of everything. You are within 15-30 minutes access to most major attractions in the Poconos and only 5 minutes from Jack Frost - Big Boulder ski resorts. We got lucky and had 5 inches of snow on Xmas eve - and enjoyed the perfect white Christmas. Being so close to Big Boulder allowed us to be first in line for Snow Tubing at the ski resort. The Chalet has all modern conveniences to make your stay comfortable and keep you entertained. The icing on the cake was the brand new hot tub with bubble jets and LED lights. The owner was so kind as to instruct cleaning staff to keep the hot tub ready for use upon check-in. It usually take 3-4 hours for hot tubs to heat up and to have it ready for use was so awesome after nearly 3 hours of travel. Trust me, a hot tub experience in -5 degrees F temperature is like heaven on earth. A wood burning fireplace, large beautiful deck and a pool table complete the chalet experience. The property was thoroughly clean and the place was perfectly in order upon arrival. The owner was very polite, soft spoken, nice and accommodating during the negotiations and gave very helpful tips on dining and activities in the area. All in all, a wonderful experience. Looking forward to renting the property again during the summer months.

                        Wow this Chalet had it all for us. We had stayed in other neighborhoods before but Bear Hugs Chalet was in the middle of it all. Location, location, location! Our kids loved the fuzzy deer with their winter fur on coming right up to the home welcoming us. The fireplace was super cozy and we took tons of family pictures unwrapping gifts!! Tim is super nice and the best owner we've worked with before. We booked in the summer too at the same house. The house is SO close to Big Boulder Ski Resort and the H20 Indoor Water Park! The Game Room was too much fun, the guys played until 4 am one MORNING! We loved the kitchen with very nice appliances. Much better than so many other rental homes.

                        My family and I stayed here and rented through Tim for now our 4th time. We originally rented with him as he made us feel so comfortable being that he said I could call him immediately when I sent an email at 1:30 am. He picked up on the first ring as he was building a home. We love his craftsmanship in the homes and in his customer service. We loved al the hiking trails that he directed us to and going to The Crossings Factory Outlets for shopping. We loved skiing Big Boulder and Jack Frost Ski areas as well as tubing. The adult kids and young alike enjoyed the H20 Water Park that is indoors no less in Lake Harmony! Shennanigan's, Louie's Prime Steak House, Piggy's for Breakfast were all recommended by Tim and he knows good food!. My husband's legs were sore after snowboarding and he was like a new man after relaxing in the hot tub with the jets on, so much that he went the next day open until close. We all loved the fact that the great room is so open to the living area, dining and kitchen and all of it has such a great view. We already booked for the summer to come escape the heat of The City. Lake Harmony is so much better than any other area we've visited in The Poconos and we love all the fun over at The Split Rock Lodge and Split Rock Golf Course.

                        What a great place to stay for Turkey Day! Had we known we'd see 50 (YUP FIFTY) Wild Turkeys at once in Tim's backyard, we'd a saved the $70 on a turkey!!! HA! It's as if they are in a wildlife show, deer walk right up to us in the yard. My wife loved the kitchen and the family loved playing "Life" in the family room upstairs while the games were on and we watched the Macy's Parade on the Movie Screen. By Friday night we ate all of our leftovers so Tim recommended Robert Christian's Restaurant. He is friends with the owner and they took excellent care of us. We had a Turine of soup that was so delicious. We have rented from Tim before and he gave us a repeat renter discount and loved his Chalet.

                        So we really needed a break from The City and called up Tim about his Chalet "Bear Hugs". He spent so much time with us on the phone easing our minds that Lake Harmony is a relaxing and fun family place. We had been to a number of "neighborhoods" (emphasis on "hoods" in the Pokes) but Lake Harmony is more elite and has a security patrol as the homes are much nicer! He needs to put a photo of the view from the house because it is spectacular, but he says he likes the surprise people get and buy was it a nice surprise! Tim spent time with us mapping out fun outings all over as half of our group wanted to ski and the other half wanted to explore. We did Paint Ball right down the street!, We loved thew indoor water park and got so much stuff at the outlets too. He knows a lot of business owners and pointed us in all the right directions. We loved working with him and will come again!

                        Owner response: I love the Paint ball park! The rafting in the summer they do is equally as fun but it sounds like you all played hard at the water park, Probably a better choice when the river is cold! See you soon!!

                        Lake Harmony says it all. We had a family reunion here and the nieces and nephews all got along famously! The adults watched baseball upstairs on the big screen and the kids played pool downstairs in the other living / game room. We all went to Bushkill Falls at Tim's suggestion and we loved it. They have a waterfall like a bridal veil so all the girls took photos with the veil behind them, super cute ;-) we liked the walk home from the water park and the lake as it tired the little ones out and the adults got to bond and reconnect. My sister made pancakes in the kitchen and we ate breakfasts out on the deck each morning watching the deer. We ended up leaving it super clean so the owner gave us discount coupons to rent again and we rented another one of his homes for a romantic getaway. Tim gave us service that was above and beyond, we love working with him!

The owner recommended Hickory Run State Park to see the largest boulder field in the world which was outrageous. Then we went on an epic hike up the seven waterfalls of Glen Onoko and even our photos don't do that justice- you gotta see it for yourself. We loved the Pool Table and watching games while shooting pool then relaxing in the private hot tub. The beds were the nicest we've ever had in a rental -so much that we'd probably return just because of such a good nights sleep. The kitchen is fully stocked and the TV in the great room is awesome with really good sound from the surround. We've stayed at another home this same owner has closer to us and we used it for a wedding instead of booking hotel rooms... the whole family loved having a little reunion and we saved from having to pay $1,600 a night from renting 6 hotel rooms, and had a kitchen/ big screen/ pool table/ hot tub/ massive deck/ grill and great views to boot.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                        Owner response: Thanks for the kind words guys, you didn't tell me about the DOUBLE rainbow! Send me a photo, I'd love to see it! Thanks again for the referrals as well! See you soon.

                        We had such a fun and relaxing time at this warm romantic chalet. There are windows all around from the great room that give 180 degree views of nothing but serenity. We went on walks right out the front door and ran into a HERD of deer. We loved the owners suggestions for breakfasts and dinners out around the lake, it's clear that he is well loved in the community as we got discounts at a few restaurants and for bike rentals. We will be back!
