Spectacular lake front houses on beautiful Lake Harmony. You will not find anything like this. These are two spectacular 4 bedroom houses on the same property right on Lake Harmony, with the cottage being about 30 feet in front of the larger house. They are rented together. Both have several large flat screen tvs (each house has a 43" smart tv), hot tubs (indoor in the larger house, the cottage has one outdoor), AC, outdoor fire pits, wireless, cable, wood burning fireplace in the larger house and gas fireplace in the cottage and the larger house has a pool table and jacuzzi in the master bedroom. There are two docks and a deck on beautiful Lake Harmony, and they are about a 5 minute walk to popular restaurants and night spots. The property is minutes from JFBB and Split Rock Resort.

As for the beds in the larger house, the master on top level has a king, the loft area with a single, two bedrooms on the main level, each with a queen and bunk bed (one bunk bed has a full on the bottom), the bedroom on the game room level has 1 bunkbed and one day bed with a trundle (so sleeps 4) and a pull out queen couch in the game room area.

In the cottage two bedrooms have queens, one room with 2 singles and one bedroom with one bunk bed and one single (so will sleep 3) and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchens are perfect for cooking for large families or groups, including breakfast bars with seating for 3, and have a stove, oven & microwave. The kitchens are fully equipped with everything you need to cook, eat and drink. Off of the kitchen is the dining room area that has a 8’ dining room table that can seat up to 10. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer for your convenience in each house.

The property is located about 1 mile to Big Boulder, 4 miles to Jack Frost and 2 miles from the H20 indoor water park and the Galleria at Split Rock. The property is minutes from numerous activities such as horseback riding, paintball, hiking, white water rafting, fishing, hunting, mountain biking, shopping, and golf. Lake Harmony is located 90 miles from NYC & Philadelphia.

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had me and 3 of my siblings' families for a total of 20 people in the house comfortably. The two house setup worked great for our needs. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. He was very responsive throughout the entire process.

Thanksgiving retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's fourth year having Thanksgiving in the mountains. The houses are large and spacious enough to accommodate the 20+ people in our family. The hot tubs are always a huge hit!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

20 women spent the weekend in Barry's two houses, with three days of sunshine when we could sit by the lake in bathing suits and then a snowstorm that brought 6" of snow -- PERFECT! The houses had everything we needed and were reasonably clean, and Barry gave us a good price for those of us who came an extra night early before the "mob." The "big house" had plenty of space for all of us to eat and play, including in the basement with its own hot tub and pool table, and the cottage was a good size, also, with a lovely deck, its outdoor hot tub, and a fire pit. The very good bar/restaurants and cafes are an easy and safe walk down the road. It was a great weekend, one I expect we'll repeat next year!

Perfect Spot For A Company Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My company, based out of New York City, was looking for a place where 25 of us could get of the city for a weekend. While finding a place proved to be very difficult, this property (including both the main house and the cottage) turned out to be ideal.

A few notable things:

--Barry was very easy to interact with and made us at ease about renting the property site unseen. You can tell he's a pro at this.

--The property is almost designed to accommodate large amounts of people. We were a little uncertain about how the houses would handle so many people, but it turned out that we had PLENTY of room.

--The common areas are actually fairly spacey. Some of the photos may lead you to believe that the three main rooms (two in the main house, one in the cottage) aren't that big, but that's not true. You can easily fit 25 people into each of them.

--Proximity to civilization is good, but not too good. If you're looking for a remote house, this is not it. If you're looking for a house in a lot of action, this is not it. But I would argue that this property is an excellent mix between the two.

One final note: Barry was unbelievably responsive in answering my questions and helping put me at ease about the property. So if you have any questions about the place, definitely just ask him. He was 100% honest with me about everything, and you just don't see that through sites like this very frequently.

Can not give this a higher rating!
