About Janet Hollingshead
Our family has been enjoying varrious areas of the Poconos for over 30 years. True water enthusiasts, we had rented properties in search of the perfect property for our family to enjoy year round and we have found it in this property we call Treetops. We also enjoy snow skiing and love the fact that there are a number of great mountains locally for winter time fun including ice skateing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and ice sailing right on the lake. This property allows us to enjoy summer and winter activities and we are happy to share with those that will enjoy and respect a wonderful family get away.
Janet Hollingshead purchased this House in 2012
Why Janet Hollingshead chose Greentown
Situated on one of the largest lake in Pennsylvania, this property has the feel and charm of a lake house cabin with the ample space and conviences of your home. This is a private community of 135 homes with only 6 homes available for rental. The neighborhood feel and serenity provides the ideal place to get away and recharge. You will be hard pressed to find more beautiful views of this part of Pennsylvania with the adventure and fun of being on a lake and near to so many activities year round. Summer boating, winter skiing, fall golfing, and spring hiking/biking make for a lot of family fun. Some like snowmobiling on the lake in the winter. If you don't own a boat, you can rent one from the local marina situated on the lake. For kids, you might consider having them take wake-boarding or skiing lessons. Note to our Guests: 1. There are two cameras placed in the house, one in the kitchen facing the door and a second on the lower level, facing the fire pit and lake. The cameras are in full display. They do not record and we have them in place to periodically check on the house when vacant. We do not look at the cameras when guests are there and you are free to unplug them during your stay. 2. We have 2 Labradors who we bring to the house when we visit. Our cleaning service vacuums and cleans the house well however if you have a child with allergies, you may want to bring Benadryl. For anyone with severe allergies, we would not recommend this house as an option for you. We do not allow pets on the property, only our own dogs when we are there. Please feel free to call Janet if you have any questions.
What makes this House unique
The front of the house is modest and quaint and yet as you enter the front door, the spacious layout and breathtaking views out each of the bed rooms provide an ambiance of relaxation with access to complete fun. Two of the rooms have sliding glass doors and access to the outside deck overlooking the lake. The home is shaded during spring, summer, and fall seasons with a 'tree fort' collection of beautiful trees which provides for some of the most beautiful views in the fall as the leaves change. The fire pit provides for a wonderful family experience for those who enjoy roasting marshmallows or having a 'fire side chat'. Put your boat or canoe in at our private dock for short a canoe ride away to a small island which has charcoal grills perfect for an afternoon adventure and cookout. Fishing is bountiful and the lake holds many variety of fish. Improvements in 2016 : Enormous new dock with Twin Waverunner floating docks (waverunner not included) allows for easy parking for two boats and waverunners/canoe/kyack. New hardwood floors and furniture in upstairs family area. New Master bedroom windows and new sliding glass doors for all rooms and game-room allow for a beautiful look at the lake.

Amazing spacious home for getaway
Great home with many amenities. Our family and friends had a wonderful time hanging out on the huge deck and lounging in the sun on the big dock watching boats go by. Our kids had a blast in the loft area and basement win games and movies, adults relaxed and enjoyed the time away from work. The homeowner was extremely helpful and responsive to questions in advance and has a beautiful home at the lake, we didn't want to leave!
Can't beat this place for a wonderful family vacation
We loved it. Wonderful lake and the house is awesome. Only bad thing I can say is that my foosball skills have gotten pretty bad as the kids kicked the adults butt in the downstairs game room. We will return and thanks for all the wonderful family memories.
First class property!
Beautiful lakefront property with nearly every amenity. Clean and comfortably spacious with perfect water access. I look forward to returning!
Thank you so much for the complement and we're delighted that you plan to return. The Fall is a perfect time to enjoy the lake, relax in the hammock or sit by the fire and enjoy the serenity. We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you again!

The home is beautiful and well appointed. Janet communicated clearly and her directions were spot on. There is a large dining table with ample seating. The beds were very comfortable as well. The dock access to the lake amazing and wished the weather cooperated a little more. Would book again and recommend it highly.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the lake and hope to have you back again - hopefully with better weather! I think it's important to have comfortable bedding (from my own experiences when not so) and upgraded when I purchased them for the house. We just purchased the new aluminum dock this year and are thrilled with it. It really expands the outdoor living space. We are continually making upgrades each year and so thankful to have guests that appreciate it and take such good care of our beloved home.

Beautiful lakefront house
I came across this listing as I was looking for a lake front home for a family reunion I was planning. The house and property was beautiful and accommodated multiple families with plenty of space and privacy. The brand new dock provided the little ones with hours of enjoyment whether fishing or swimming as well as providing plenty of room for boat/ canoe/ kayak and jet ski storage. The boating right off of the dock was so convenient and that area provided a lot of excellent kayaking- We saw multiple bald eagles as well as herons and other wildlife. The owner was excellent to deal with staying in touch to make sure there were no problems or concerns.
So glad that you enjoyed the reunion with your family. The new dock really does make a difference in providing lots of outdoor space for boating, kayaking, fishing and simply relaxing. We love to watch for the bald eagles and have sighted several as well. Our kids love to fish as well and the smaller cove is great for kayaking. We love hearing stories of our guest families and their kids enjoying the lake. We also just discovered (for the nostaglic) that Woodstock (yes, the site of the infamous festival) is only 40 minutes away!

We had a great time!
This home was great! The owner was always available and helpful! The home was clean and there was plenty of room. The kitchen had everything you could need. The dock was great! Very easy to dock the boat, swim and fish from. The kids had a great time! Love the swings under the deck!
Nadine - It really gives us joy to hear of good times and memories created at our Lakehouse as that is what we hope for. So glad your family had a great time and enjoyed the new dock. It really provides so much more outdoor space to enjoy and that's why we purchased it. We hope you and your family come back again next year as we have that week open for you!
Warm regards, Janet
