Property description

This charming 4 season cottage is located on Lake Henry,(about 20 minutes from Lake Ariel) in the Northeast section of the Poconos. It is renovated throughout with many amenities inside and out.
During the SUMMER, enjoy our two person kayak, paddle boat or canoe. The yard slopes gently to lake. Safe for little ones. Swim to the swim dock and just lounge and gaze at the trees and the lake in the rope hammock. There is a grill and a FIRE PIT for evening campfires (wood provided). The lake is popular for fishing and you can be guaranteed a catch right off the dock. Take the canoe out at dusk for a real treat in tranquility. Its very quiet and relaxing. GOLF courses just 10-15 minutes away. Horseback riding/waterparks/zoo are w/in 20-30 min. away. Be ready to be outside all day and enjoying the cool breezes to get away from the heat of the city.
In the Fall, the country is serenely beautiful in the with all the leaves changing colors and farm stands to visit. There are cider mills and pumpkin patches, horseback riding and a terrific zoo.
In WINTER, we are within 20-30 min of skiing (Elk, Camelback, Montage). Iceskate and icefish on the lake. Retreat inside w/ the cozy fireplaces and a pot of chili. Have a campfire if there's no snow. Watch the amazing sunsets over the mountain or cross the lake.
Play Wii listen to music on ipod dock. The Smart TV makes movie watching easy...just download thru NETFLIX for free. This affordable vacation property is designed for a small family or a romantic getaway. The interior is clean and updated. Also, ask about linens. House has 2 gas fireplaces.

WARM, COMFY, CLEAN & COZY!: This Mountain side / lakefront cottage is a renovated, very clean, romantic getaway. It is secluded enough for a peaceful, uninterrupted get together yet it is only 25 minutes to the nearest Starbucks and malls. The living room has a gas fireplace that makes it a perfect gathering place for some serious heat and the den has a gas fireplace unit that keeps the rest of the house at a constant temperature. The bedroom has an electric fireplace that makes for the most romantic setting. The weather outside might be frightful but inside the cottage it is as warm and bright as a summer day! CABLE TV/ DVD/FREE HIGH SPEED CABLE WiFi INTERNET /iPOD DOCKING STATION

The kitchen is modern, with a large built in microwave, a blender, toaster, toaster oven, gas oven, can opener and coffee maker,
There is a large air conditioner built into the living room and a window A/C for the bedroom. This cottage is well insulated so the temperature is cool and constant.

It is a great place for young adventurous kids. they can catch fish with a net at the shore, or learn to fish. There are 'swimmies and life jackets for everyone in the plastic storage box on the dock.

HAMMOCK, FIREWOOD, FIRE PIT: There is a large two person hammock for resting and a two person swing seat on the deck. There is a BBQ grill, with a side burner, so you can cook a meal for everyone. The firewood is supplied, cut and ready for you. The water is warm, and the Adirondack chairs are perfect for watching the kids in the lake.
There is a large picnic table on the lawn for lunch and an outdoor table on the rear deck for an outside sunset sit down dinner.There is a driving range/mini golf and a golf course for dad nearby. There are some great places to go to see some of the most unique antiques I have ever seen.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are from Philadelphia and own a small business. Our life is very busy. Frank is the pizza man and Mary is a freelance graphic artist. The Lakehouse is our 3rd child. We love it that much and hope that visitors will too. Its humble and serene and our savior from the busy loud city.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Ariel:
The Lakehouse is a beautiful peaceful escape for those seeking that sort of thing. The sunsets are spectacular. It is open 4 seasons and each season treats us to its own unique experiences. Depending on the time, you can swim, boat, fish, sled, ice-skate, walk the lake or paddle it. Always cozy inside and relaxing outside in the hammock or not he couch gazing out on the lake. There's tons of different birds to watch as well as great fishing both ice and regular. Its just a great place to clear your head, breath clean air and escape. We all need to escape once in a while right?

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The most amazing sunsets you will ever see as well as the most dramatic weather and weather changes. Its truly a beautiful place.
