About Kim


Thank you for taking a look at my site.

I am a mother of three,, 1 boy, and two girls,,

ages 19, 17 and 13. I have my hands full!!

Live in Skillman, NJ (just north of Princeton) with my hubby Bryan on 7 acres.

I grew up in Ithaca, NY,, where my father was a professor at the Hotel School at Cornell,, for 40 years..

'Prof Chase'

I attended Goucher College, met Bryan skiing at Hunter Mountain...

We have lived in Mahwah, then Montville, and have been on our 7 acres in Skillman for 15 years!

Love it!

I am a wife, mother, chauffeur, room mom, trustee of the Historical Society, member of the Sourland Conservancy, Friends of Open Space, member of the Princeton Elks Lodge, and teach at the Blawenburg PreSchool.

Kim purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Kim chose Lakeville

We chose this property for its location... situated halfway

between Ithaca, NY (my parents) and Skillman, NJ (us). It's the perfect spot for the grandparents to enjoy spending time with their grandchildren!

Large enough, that everyone can be comfortable,, and the kids can bring a friend or two, to enjoy vacation.

We also chose this home for its 'beach'...

Most homes we looked at, had many stairs,, or boulders to climb over, to get to the water...

From June on,, we have a lovely pebbly beach, that the kids can romp on, and get into the water.

Perfect for all to enjoy!

What makes this chalet unique

Our home is breathtaking!

When you walk in the front door,,

The blue water of the lake is within your reach, and the log architecture is amazing!

The floors were imported from British Columbia, and the

chairs and dining room table made by hand in Stroudsburg, Pa. Plenty of space for families to gather together,, or spread out,, and do their own things.

There's NO better place, than on the dock at Sunrise!

With a coffee or tea in hand, sitting back in a 'beach' chair.

Mist is rising from the lake, the sky is a magical mix of red, white, pink, purple and blue...

It's perfectly quiet,, except for the Loons and ducks 'talking',,

'Sunnys' are jumping for bugs

The small birds and chipmunks are making the woods come alive behind you. If you're particularly lucky, you'll get a glimpse of an Osprey or Bald Eagle,,, silently flying overhead. Nature at its best! Beautiful!

Fourth of July weekend

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property to spend the Fourth of July weekend with a close knit group of friends. I have spent many summer weekends on the lake and for those unfamiliar, it's an absolutely beautiful area perfect for water sports, fishing, and boat rides. The waterfront property really takes advantage of this with a dock right in one of the most popular coves.

The house itself was even better than we had imagined. It was a cozy but yet very spacious layout. Extremely clean and well maintained with a modern log cabin feel on the inside. We only had 9 but for families you could very comfortably fit 15. There is also a loft with pool ping pong table and air hockey. While we only spent a little time in this area it would be just another reason families would enjoy this house. It rained almost the entire day Saturday but we had almost just as much fun hanging out inside.

The owner was also very easy to work with. We were able to communicate throughout the weekend very easily as she made herself available from the beginning of the weekend.

Overall we couldn't have been happier with the house and property and will hope to return in the future.

Couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

The house is truly amazing. It was bigger and had more amenities than I had even imagined. All 14 of us slept very comfortably and truly had an incredible weekend. The master bedroom is very large with a beautiful private bathroom, balcony and king sized bed. Most of the bedrooms have windows or balconies which look out over the lake. The property is gorgeous and sits right on the lake. We were able to rent boats and tie them up right on our private dock. The lake itself is beautiful and the perfect size. Big enough to explore all day by motor boat, yet small enough not to get lost. The dock is great although can't fit too many people and is covered by shade around 12-1 PM.

Kim was very quick to respond to any requests or concerns I had. She made us feel very welcome and truly enhanced our overall experience. My only issue with the property is the gravel driveway. It is very steep and the gravel makes it difficult to enter and exit, so be careful! I'd recommend backing down the driveway to make it easier to get out. Overall, everything was perfect. I highly recommend this rental and would certainly rent again. It was tough to leave.

Owner's Response: Greetings Brooklyn! Thank you for visiting, and for your kind words! So glad everyone had a fabulous time! There are plans for the driveway to be paved in the Fall! I've been waiting for that ,,, myself! A paved drive will make it easier for guests to visit in the winter months too! The lake offers a whole new experience,, when it's frozen over! Come visit us on Lake Wallenpaupack!

A Little Bit of Heaven.....

  • 5 of 5

We're still basking in the afterglow of one of the best family vacations we've ever had. This beautifully appointed, spacious home on the largest cove in Lake Wallenpaupack is truly a little bit of Heaven. The first class, rustic interior can accommodate a large group of all ages. The master bedroom, with a king sized bed and spacious bath, which includes a jacuzzi tub and a stand-alone tiled shower, is fit for a king and queen. Three other bedrooms, one of which is on the kitchen and patio level and suitable for parents-in-law, and full baths within short steps, provide plenty of privacy. A third floor loft, with two sets of bunk beds, a ping-pong and pool table, board and video games, is a perfect setting for kids indoors where they can make all the noise they want without annoying the adults. A large picture window in the dining area provides a panoramic view of the lake. Add the patio, fire-pit area below, and the lake-front dock and swimming area suitable for young children, and this vacation home is perfect for making family memories. We'll be back next year; can't wait.

Lakehouse vacay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the week we spent here. There are quite a few stairs, which was fine for the ages of our party. The lower level was fine for our elderly guest with limited mobility, once she got there, as there was a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and entertainment area all on that level. The water for the shower and bath had an unpleasant odor. There was a water filter on the fridge, although it ran slowly, but we mostly used bottled water for drinking and cooking. The location was fantastic with fairly easy accessibility to grocery stores. The view was tremendous and we spent much time on the patio communing with nature and enjoying the lake view.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliments! It IS,, a truly magical place! Eagle sightings, chipmunks and squirrels chatting, birds singing and children laughing and squealing in the Lake.. Our home is perfect for young and old,,, Everything is on the main level,, ( Queen Bedroom, 2 Kitchens, dining room, family room, laundry, full bath, step on to the patio to enjoy the lake)no need to go anywhere else! Let the young ones run upstairs to bed. And the water,,,We have the freshest, coldest, most delicious Pocono Mountain water! Totally harmless, and 20 min in a pitcher in the fridge will make that bouquet disappear! Ac's have been installed in three of the four bedrooms... Come enjoy Lake Wallenpaupack at our lovely home! Sincerely, Kim

beautiful house & location

  • 4 of 5

We rented this lovely lake house for a week & it was in most aspects, terrific. Lots of room for everybody, with a large kid's area on the 3rd floor & nicely appointed bedrooms & common areas on the lower 2 levels. It is in a cove on the lake so its quiet as compared to the main part of the lake, which is good. the owners are very pleasant & helpful, should anything come up during the stay( one morning we awoke to no water, called & they were right on it, advising that it was a town issue ,not the house & water came back on it 20 minutes). The biggest drawback is that the house has NO AIRCONDITIONING, which we ASSUMED it would, since it was big & spaciously appointed. Luckily,it

wasn't so blazing hot for our week, but thats a problem for older folks. Also, it could have been a little cleaner, we found cobwebs on the walls in several of the bedrooms, if they use a cleaning service, they need to have them "step it up", but all in all, a good place to rent & we're thinking about renting it again, maybe in the off-season.

Fabulous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting house for as long as I can remember and by far, this has been the BEST home we have ever rented. Beautiful, clean and well appointed. We enjoyed our quiet winter weekend on the lake. Our intention was to head over to Hawley or Skytop for some winter activities (ice skating, skiiing, snow shoeing, etc) but we never left the house. We enjoyed ice skating on the lake out back and sledding down the driveway. It was a winter wonderland. Both kids and adults had a wonderful time. It was a memorable 60th birthday weekend for my dad. We are hoping to return to the house for a week this summer.
