About Susan Sims

We're a blended family from Maple Glen, PA (suburban Philadelphia) with 6 kids, ranging in age from 15 to 27 as of 2017. We love both the beach and the more family-oriented mountains.

Susan Sims purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan Sims chose Pocono Lake

We did extensive research into the various Pocono communities. We wanted lake front, within a reasonable drive from Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York, where we have family; a good/established community with a lot of amenities at a good value; and at least 1 heated swimming pool within walking distance was a MUST. There also needed to be a variety of attractions both within and near the community that would be of interest to kids of all ages.

We love our home, which is officially on wetlands with natural moss and plants in the wooded back yard. If it rains, the yard always got wet, but it's been bad so since the community crowned the road the wrong way. (I have assurances that it is supposed to be fixed before the summer rental season, but . . . . ) So, bring boots because the flooding has been very bad.

What makes this house unique

No 'old house smell' in our home! We're trying to create a contemporary but warm and comfortable decor, that's family-friendly, and that takes full advantage of the lake year round. Although our home is pet-friendly to well-behaved pets (we have 2 dogs) and owners, absolutely no smoking is allowed. To maintain the new carpets and furnishings and ensure that the house remains at its best, we prefer renting to families and will not rent to groups of college-aged individuals.

Wonderful house on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

My family of seven had a wonderful time at this house for two weeks. Being able to go out onto your own dock and kayak, paddle boat, float in the lake and fish is wonderful. The house is well-suited to a large amount of people and very comfortable. It was nice to have smart TVs also. Susie the owner was very easy to work with and pleasant. We hope to return to this house again.

Plenty of room for 3 generations of our family and we loved the private dock.

  • 5 of 5

Homeowner was very responsive and helpful. Suzie went above and beyond to help make our family vacation enjoyable. Beautiful sunsets on your own private dock & home owner allows you to access 2 person Kayak and 2 person paddle boat... This is a major plus as we used both a lot! All in all we enjoyed the property, hiking, boating and restaurants.

VoloVista July 2017

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our week at VoloVista. The house is spacious and well-equipped. It is only a couple of doors away from the beach and playground, so it is a perfect house for guests with children. We used and enjoyed the games, boats and the dock. Suzie was great to work with. We'd happily return.

Great Communication and Wonderful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Suzie was amazing to work with. My family and I went to the Poconos during Memorial Day Weekend. We rented two homes during our stay and this home blew the other home out of the water. Throughout the entire planning process Suzie was very accessible and accommodating to make this process as seamless as possible. Her home was stocked with cooking tools and utensils we may have forgotten which was a plus. This home was very beautiful! I wold recommend.

2nd time staying. Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Volovista. The house is warm and cozy and comfortably fit our group of 13. We loved being right on the lake and enjoyed evenings outside around the fire pit. The owner, Suzie, is very accommodating and accessible. We had a last minute addition to our group (after we'd already checked in) and I was able to reach Suzie and she informed the gate house of the additional name to the list. We plan to come back next year, or maybe this summer!
