Guestbook comments from the owner

Tim was exceptionally responsive to all of our needs and was very helpful in helping us with things to do around the lake. The house is very well maintained, high end appliances, new TVs, and full of every game we wanted to play. Bedding was beautiful. The views and property are excellent, can see for miles and the privacy was superb. The kitchen was high-end, nicer than we've had from a chalet. We litterally fed the deer apples from our mouths! We have videos of the deer that will be posted. Tim is a joy to work with and will take great care of you. 5 stars

We will be renting from Tim again!

Bear Hugs Chalet is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Bear Hugs Chalet was the perfect getaway for our college reunion. The house ended up being much nicer than the photos and we always appreciate the detail that goes into making sure the home is very clean. We had rented this same Chalet in 2015 then Tim closed it down for a year to remodel and the upgrades were awesome. We had 12 people and the games kept everyone occupied as 4 people can play shuffleboard while 4 shoot pool and 4 play foosball. The games are completely top-notch, super sweet for a mountain rental. The hot tub seats 6 which we never had that many in because the guys and girls ended up splitting up throughout the week as we played Paintball at Skirmish while the girls went to the spa for massages and whatever else girls get done.

The kitchen was very nice with brand new everything from pots to every appliance which also seem almost too nice for a mountain Chalet. The deck is massive which is nice for grilling out and watching all the wildlife, it is also super private with no homes below the property. The property is actually quite large, Tim said it's like an acre but it seems larger because we can't see any homes below his house.

We walked home from the clubs and restaurants, Big Boulder is 2 minutes away and Split Rock Golf Courses are just on the other side of the lake. We already booked for one of the races at Pocono Speedway as we're huge into NASCAR and we're going to mountain bike that same week. He has Lakefront access for boating and playing beach volleyball as well as swimming which we enjoyed the second to last time we rented. No one is more helpful and he gave us a repeat renter discount which was cool because his rates are already more fair than the rest of the homes in the same area.

We'll be back, 5 stars for sure!

The chalet was recently updated, central to everything and very entertaining

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came here for a weekend to celebrate a bachelor party. I was the best man and staying at the Bear Hug Chalet made me look like a genius.

To start, Tim the owner was very attentive and helpful throughout the process. He would regularly call or email to make sure we were all set. This included thorough instructions on how to get to and get in the property. He also provided excellent suggestions for outdoor activities, dining and nightlife.

The chalet was the perfect size with the amount of sleeping space at this property (7 total guys). When we weren't out and back at the property, the game room kept everyone entertained and competitive. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking, the hot tub is a nice touch and the deck is huge for everyone to hang out on.

I would highly recommend this property. It helped make a memorable weekend.

Lake Harmony Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Lake Harmony vacation home was amazing! My girlfriend and I were looking for a quiet place to get away and just enjoy the mountains. When we arrived the hot tub was clean and ready to go which was a huge bonus considering the traveling we had to do. The inside of the home was very clean and well kept. All we had to do was drop our bags, kick our feet back and relax! Fantastic game room downstairs, we played pool and shuffle board and everything was maintained very well which was great because a lot of rental homes are missing pool balls, sticks etc.....We reached out to the owner for recommendations on where we should eat and he picked the phone right up and gave us two restaurants without hesitation. I would recommend this home to couples looking for a retreat, skiers looking to be close to the mountain or quite frankly anybody who wants an easy and affordable getaway in the Pocono Mountains. Thanks Tim!!!!!!!!

This picky operating room nurse actually unwound in the view of the lake, mountain, and serenity.

The organization within the home, brought a sense of compassion and peace from the internal to the now.It is good to be able to relax away from the hectic work scene of patient concerns for safety and reliability upon us.Leaving the OR is akin to get off from a merry go round, and walking in concentric circles before being able to go straight again.Being in this environment of absolute peace and order, actually was therapeutic.Clean surroundings, calm, quiet, and ability to turn away from the exterior world and to find the interior, is the basis for Ignatian Exercises and to reflect, which is a gift.

lovely get away

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for a quick last minute holiday get away. it was a lovely place that met our needs well. we were 4 adults and 5 children age 10-16. Nice to have two bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor. We loved watching the deer in the woods off the deck and playing pool on the first level. The owner was very informative with lots of tips for attractions and restaurants. Lots of hiking nearby. Nicks lakehouse was our favorite for family friendly and nice view of lake and fabulous waitress Haylie:)
