About Christine and Steve

Since my son was very young, we rented houses throughout the Poconos for skiing. They were some of the best memories of our lives and we cherished the day that we could own a home of our own. Now we would like to share that world with you so that you may create wonderful memories with your family.

Christine and Steve purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Christine and Steve chose Poconos

The Poconos has always been a refreshing vacation spot, with even more activities than the Jersey shore. Towamensing Trails, near Big Boulder/Lake Harmony, has wonderful amenities for adults and children. The beach area is large and the lake is stocked with trout and very clean. Many people enjoy the large swimming pool and there is a special pool just for the kids. The community is close to Big Boulder, Pocono Raceway, many lakes and parks, golf courses, shopping, antiquing, horsebacking riding, and hiking and biking trails. We enjoy boating, so we make use of the community lake and nearby Beltzville State Park.

What makes this chalet unique

You will find all the comforts of home and numerous personal decorative features in the spirit of country living.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Feels like you just came home from a long week at work and are ready to put your feet up and "veg". Everytime we thought Christine missed something, we found it within five minutes. Everything you could need. Wonderful comfy beds (already made up when we got there), towels, hair dryer and everything you could need in the kitchen. Christine is always just a phone call away to answer any questions. Best part was the multiple seating areas in the livingroom. We went there with my sister and her husband for Superbowl weekend and had plenty of comfortable places to sit and watch the game.

Thank you for everything! We will definately be back.

Great retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days in the Poconos and stayed here. The house is very clean, quiet, and well-kept. Great deck! The owner is friendly and helpful. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Connecting with the owner was quick and felt instantly as I have known her for years. My sister's family and mine all gathered together for a really nice mid-week ski vacation. We were able to bring our dogs and I think the labs loved the place as much as we all did. Beautiful setting in the woods and a short walk to a very picturesque lake. We skied Camelback which was an easy 30 minute drive.

Christine suggested bringing groceries which we did and any little things we forgot could be picked up at the Dollar General on the corner (very true). We ventured out to the closest Shop Rite (10 miles), sorta far but totally worth it. Great store!!

We played games (well-stocked) and even a little puzzle! Movies, books, well-stocked kitchen, towels, nice relaxing jet-tub...pretty much has it all.

Perfect Choice!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. The area is wonderful for families looking for a quiet weekend away, or the avid skier looking for the next great weekend on the slopes. This home provides everything you will need, including easy access to and from the highway. Conveniently located near Big Boulder and Split Rock. Mt. Pocono is just a hop on the highway and only 15 miles down the road is a small town that has an absolutely breath taking view during the Autumn months.

The owner is a pure pleasure to work with and is readily available if you have any questions or concerns during your stay. The owner made my family and I feel truly welcome in her home and treated us as if we were all family. We will definitely plan to stay in this home again and strongly encourage anyone looking for a Pocono getaway to stay here.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was just the vacation spot that we were looking for. The house was comfortable and accommodating for our family four and our two small dogs. We especially enjoyed the back deck and view of the trees and wildlife every morning, and the community provided the perfect blend of activity and peacefulness. There were plenty of areas to walk the dogs, stroll around or ride our bikes withing the neighborhood, and we were close enough to several mountain hiking trails to take on some higher adventure. The beach and lakefront areas were inviting and uncrowded on the weekdays.

The kitchen was well-stocked and organized with everything that we needed to prepare and eat family meals. The stacked washer and dryer came in handy throughout the week. The master bathroom has a very large hot tub and plenty of towels provided. The owner is very easy to deal with and seems to go the extra mile to ensure that her renters have everything that they need, including information about restaurants and shopping. She was only a text message away when a question arose about the wifi password. We would definitely go back if the timing works out next year.

Perfect Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wanda's Dream is a perfect location for a girls retreat!! My close friends and I plan a long weekend getaway every year and this trip was certainly one of our favorites! I was extremely impressed with how much Christine went out of her way to make sure that we had all the information we needed for our stay. She provided us with information concerning locations of shopping centers, activities, popular spots- along with directions, restaurant suggestions and so much more! All this information certainly contributed to our trip being such a success... so a HUGE thank you to Christine!

When arriving the home was spotless. There was one issue with the front rugs having a very strong odor however that was easily explained by the carpets just being cleaned and the extremely humid weather. We were able to quickly remedy that with products available in the home and the odor was gone in a day. Other than that one small hiccup... the home was perfect. It had everything we needed. Our favorite part was the quiet back deck where we able to enjoy our morning coffee while visiting with a large number of deers.

It was the perfect home for a relaxing trip! My Mom has already a suggested a Mother/Daughter get away to the Poconos... so we will most likely be back! Thank you!

Owner's Response: To Carrie and friends: It gave me joy to know that our home helped make your special time together a good experience and mostly, that you had lots of fun. Hope you had a chance to savor some of the great activities that the Poconos has. I know that you travelled a great distance, and I am honored that you chose our home above all others. Glad that you enjoyed the deck and the plentiful deer that wander by. Please feel free to return at any time. You are always welcome. - Christine
