"My family and I stayed in this beautiful chalet over the 2015 July 4th weekend, and it was PERFECT!!! First, my husband and I (and our 2 dogs) stayed in this beautiful home in 2008 and we had a GREAT time then - in the house playing games, pool, grilling on the back deck, enjoying the lake beach, fishing, white water rafting, horseback riding, it was a PERFECT getaway for a young married couple with no kids. This year, we decided that our 3 & 6 year old children would be old enough to really enjoy it. We were a little nervous about how the kids were going to like it & whether we could keep them occupied and entertained. First, they've made a lot of updates since the above pictures and our last visit. New pillows, new bed linens, wi-fi accessibility, a flat screen with HDMI hookup in the main family room. We took our Apple TV with us, so on the few rainy days we had we were able to access our digital movies and rent movies at our expense. Second, the lake now has a huge playground that the kids absolutely LOVED! It was really nice being able to relax with my husband on the beach while our kids got to play on the playground and then play in the sand or in the shallows of the lake. Heavenly! We took a day trip to Bushkill Falls, fished our hearts out (Lisa and Rich dropped off the village beach/fishing passes, so we only needed to get our PA fishing licenses), relaxed on the beach, had family game nights. The kids were surprisingly comfortable in the new environment and, for anyone who has young children, you know that says a LOT! My only recommendation is do NOT bring a lot of snack foods with you! Lisa had a beautiful welcome basket for us that was just amazing! They really haven't missed a thing! There was a small leak in the downstairs bedroom bath under the sink. This caused us absolutely NO inconvenience AT ALL, but we called to let her know just so that she didn't incur any damage. Even over the holiday weekend, she and her amazing neighbor got a plumber right out, we didn't have to stay at the house (her angel of a neighbor was just as amazing as Lisa is), and it was taken care of and done before we were actually ready to leave the house. She is attentive in every way, kept us informed of all of the local festivities, the house was immaculate, had everything you could ever need in the kitchen and beyond, comfortable, and none of us wanted to leave. Both of our kids have already asked, no - INSISTED, that we make this an annual trip for our family."
