About James and Wendy Jansen
We are NYC public school teachers. We enjoy playing sports, hiking and living an active lifestyle.
James and Wendy Jansen purchased this House in 1995
Why James and Wendy Jansen chose Hawley
The home has been in our family for over 20 years. We have fond memories gathering as a family over the years to celebrate birthdays and other occasions. It is always a great escape from the city, as we love to spend time outside hiking, swimming, and barbecuing. We hope you can also create some long-lasting memories during your getaway.
What makes this House unique
We love sharing meals on the deck while looking out onto the lake, taking a swim just steps from the house whenever we feel like it from the private dock, sipping hot chocolate in front of a burning fireplace, and venturing out into the community to partake in the numerous amenities like swimming, hiking, golfing, and fishing.

5 star family vacation
This is a great rental for a family looking to relax on a lake. The pictures do not give it justice!Lots of space for everyone. We enjoyed all the extras. Boats,bikes,fishing poles and private beaches and pools .All the beds were extremely comfy. Well stocked kitchen,towels and supplies. Jim gives a quick tour,which is helpful and answers any questions. We had the best time and look forward to renting again next summer.
Great place for a getaway ... enjoyed the fireplace all weekend long
Nice spot overlooking the lake, very comfortable for our group (three couples + a baby); everything was clean and easy and gave us the space for a lovely time together. Would certainly recommend for a gathering of family or friends, with much appreciation for our hosts
An above and beyond vacation!!
Exceptionally clean with all our needs met. Beds were very comfortable. Lake view can be enjoyed from the house and all the lake equipment was easily accessible. Very friendly owners and we lacked nothing to enjoy our visit. We highly recommend this house. Also easily accessible to Watchtower facilities.
We had a wonderful family week at James and Wendy Jansens lake house in Hemlock Farms.
This house is very well laid out for large groups and extremely well stocked. Lots of supplies are provided: sheets, towels, beach towels, fully equipped kitchen, games , toys, kayaks, life vests, bicycles........ I could go on and on. James and Wendy met us there and showed us around; both are very friendly and welcoming. Our adult children enjoyed the amenities that Hemlock Farms provides as well as the boats and fishing equipment - also provided. The highlight to our days was to sit around the campfire and the Jansens had an ample supply of wood and kindling for us to use. We chose this location for several reasons but mostly because it is near all of our extended family. The absolute only reason I did not give a 5 star rating was because we did not know that we were limited to only 4 vehicles at the house due to Hemlock Farms being a gated community. Our sons came from Texas, California and South Carolina and only visit twice a year. We wanted to be close to extended family so they could all get to see them but we spent a lot of time shuffling in and out to pick them up since they had to park off site. Otherwise this vacation stay was perfect and i would highly recommend this lakefront house for you next family vacation !
Great place to vacation
My whole family, sons, daughter in-laws, and grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our vacation stay at the Jansen's lake house. The house had all the comforts of home with a beautiful lake in front. FYI James: There are big fish in the lake. My son caught a 3 lb bass with several big hits. The community park and pool was very close and source of good fun for the grandkids.
The close proximity to grocery store , gas, and restaurants was very convenient. This includes a pizza parlor where "NY" style pizza was served. We were able to start a bonfire in the front yard fire pit with all the pizza boxes that were accumulated. Pizza in Ohio is just not as good.
Hope to stay again next year.
Thank you to the Jansen's.
The Sherman Family
We had a wonderful family vacation at James & Wendy's Pocono retreat. So many things to do at the house, in the Hemlock Farms community, and in the Pocono area. I highly recommend this rental property - James & Wendy were great.
