About Sally L

A native of Chicago and now resident of Central New Jersey, I enjoy spending time in Arrowhead Lake with my children, who love to ski & swim as well as hike in some of the spectacular nearby state parks. It's also a great spot for a girls' or couple's weekend. I own two properties in Arrowhead Lake, and I take great pride in keeping them as clean and comfortable as possible for my guests.

Sally L purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Sally L chose Pocono Lake

This home appealed to me because it had great 'bones,' and because the property is heavily treed and feels very private.

What makes this cottage unique

The home has lots of beautiful Andersen windows and a French door leading to the very private rear deck. The house is set back from the road, making it feel secluded. I added recessed lighting in the kitchen and living room in 2011, wallpapered the kitchen while living here as a refugee from Hurricane Sandy (I reside in NJ), added new carpeting throughout in June 2015, and continue to make improvements as the budget allows!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time, it's a very nice place.

We will be calling in the future to rent it again.

Quaint home in wonderful community w/lots to offer

  • 5 of 5

The home was a little small but matched pictures etc. It was just me and my 9 year old grandson. We had a great time. The community had a great deal to offer (surprisingly huge and driving needed if you wanted to visit other pools/amenities). There was a pool in walking distance too which we visited. Grandson loved the playground there. The Lodge was lovely. We took advantage of the breakfast they offered. Lots to do within driving distance, so we did a few day trips: Bushkill Falls, Camel Beach Aquatopia, Parasailing. In the community, we did kayaking and paddleboarding. Workers at the rental shack were very flexible and let us trade kayaks for paddle boards - my grandson wanted to try it again. Great experience at the home, area and with Sally.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review, Kelly! Always happy to hear my guests enjoyed the cottage, the community and the Poconos region. Looks like you packed a lot of activities into your stay! As for the size of the house, the square footage of 950 ft is including in the listing information, but most people find that the home feels larger. Hope you can bring your grandson back to stay in one of my cottages again soon! — Sally
