About Jean


My name is Jean and my husband and I live in Harrisburg, PA. I grew up in Northern Pennsylvania and still have family there who help me manage and prepare the chalet for our guests. When the chalet is not rented, my family and I try to travel up to the chalet to visit, repair, clean and have a little fun!

My husband and I bought the chalet two years ago in an effort to get closer to my family and find a retreat away from our city lives.

Actually, one of my hobbies is construction and home decorating, so I had a blast finishing the chalet with my sister, Jane.

I hope you get the opportunity to visit the beautiful poconos and enjoy nature at it's best!

Jean purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Jean chose Poconos

relax, have fun and unwind!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It has been very hectic since returning from our weekend retreat. I wish we were still there. We had a great time. The house was gorgeous and we only wish we could have stayed longer. Time went way too fast!! Thank you so much for the wonderful basket of goodies! What a nice surprise!

We will probably be in touch to see about availability sometime in the late spring or summer. I would love to see how different everything looks when there are leaves on the trees.

best pocono vacation !

  • 5 of 5

When our first granddaughter was born in 2001, we decided to start an annual tradition of spending 2 weeks doing fun things together and just bonding with family. So, this is our 8th year renting a house in the Poconos, and we have never stayed at such a lovely home, with such accommodating hosts. It was really more like being in a bed and breakfast. It’s not just a

house; it’s a real home, in fact, more like staying in a friend’s home. The house is decorated and maintained beautifully, and everything they advertise about it is true (and even modest). We had the best time we’ve ever had, and our extended family members who came with us were impressed that we finally found the perfect vacation home (they’ve stayed with us at the other houses we’ve rented). We cannot thank Jean and Dan enough for sharing their getaway with us, and are already making plans to return next year. Honestly, I cannot say enough about it, I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and in fact, have already told several friends about it.

As far as things to do, because our 'kids' are small, they are very happy at the pool and beach (and arrowhead lake pools and beaches were great); and also going out for ice cream and 'jumping' at the arcade/mini-golf/ice cream/etc entertainment place not to far away on Route 940. A bit further, but worth the trip, is the lovely town of Jim Thorpe, with sightseeing, train rides, shopping, restaurants ... very quaint for a day out.

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to relax and vacation. Many things to do in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and all it had to offer. The hot tub was pristine and perfect temperature. The house itself has a very open feel to it, which is great for everyone to be together. Plenty of bathrooms for all. Our favorite was the deck swing and the firepit. We made a point to spend most of our time whether morning or night on the deck. A must rent!!

We can say we were extremely pleased with our stay at the Wiest Chalet. We arrived to a spotless well maintained home, that had more than everything you need to enjoy the stay. Jean kept in touch the whole time leading up to our trip. Ran everything by us to make sure we had a clear understanding of everything before we got there. The pictures don't do the house justice, once you get there the house is 5 times better than what you see in pictures. Every room was a comfortable setting, the pool table kept us all entertained, the deck with the grill and fire pit had everyone wanting to stay in and not go out. There are a few trails to go hiking in, everything is fairly close to the house without taking up your whole day to get out. It was truly a great all around experience wish I could put everything into words. Our group of 8 enjoyed the stay and we are already planning another trip back which will be at this amazing home.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This chalet was absolutely perfect for our weekend ski getaway! There was plenty of room for the 8 of us to be comfortable, my only suggestion would be to have more seating in living room. The house comes equipped with everything you may need to cook a large meal (pots/pans/spices/utensils/dishes). Jean & Dan were very responsive, we had an issue and Jean responded very quickly to solve our problem. It was a cold weekend so the hot tub was a plus! We will definitely be looking to rent this home again next winter!
