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 Albrightsville

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.

comfy and cozy Thanksgiving week 2017

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home. The location was perfect. Near many state parks and historical places to visit. The owner decorated the home with festive thanksgiving and christmas decorations but nothing over the top.. That was so thoughtful. Well kept house in an extremely quite neighbor hood. There are plenty of safe roads to walk and lots of wildlife to enjoy. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need, My wife made a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for all,even my granddog had a plate. I very highly recommend this property to any one who likes comfort, cleanliness and quite. Thank you, we will remember 2017 Thanksgiving at your home for a life time.If we are ever in this area again we will rent this exact property.

we Loved our stay at Wanda’s Dream. Christine could not have been more helpful with letting us know what to bring on our stay . She also gave a great layout of where to shop , eat , etc. . She made sure everything was perfect-when we got there and texted to make sure we settled in ok . Also to see if we needed anything . We are looking forward to booking again during the summer or fall . Definitely a must do again .

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Truly a home away from home. So comfortable and warm. We had a very relaxing stay - sorry we couldn't have stayed longer. Christine was so friendly and easy to talk to. She answered any question. This is one house I will continue to return to when we need a quick getaway.

Such an amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this amazing home for a long weekend getaway. Our family of 4, plus our Fur baby. We did not realize how much it would make such a difference. We are workaholics. Literally we work all the time. We arrived Thursday and unpacked. The kids went to the waterpark. We went to the store and hung around the area. Nice and quiet, Deer just walk into the yard. We sat out on the deck , enjoyed many coffee and snacks. We didn't want to waste a moment. We didn't work the rest of the time. Which almost gave the kids a heart attack. We needed this so much. Just a nice relaxing, no worries weekend.

This place is way more then beautiful, it feels very homely. I felt welcomed as soon as I walked in. View's are amazing, Lake was beautiful and right around the corner. There is a pool, but, we never made it to there. Too much to see and enjoy in just one weekend. We will return again soon.

The Owner - Christine is such a great pleasant person. Answered all my questions. We talked on the phone, emailed and texted. She was very responsive, quick to answer and calls or text. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us, we are already planning our next visit.

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that my home was comfortable and enjoyable for you and your family. The fact that you relaxed totally made me feel like I've done my job to do the best to make your feel at home. Glad you had the opportunity to visit various places around the community and glad you had some time to just sit on the deck and enjoy nature and the deer. Our home is always open to you and your family. - Christine
