About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8-10, Lakefront!

Welcome to our lake house in the mountains! This is our vacation home, so we treat it with care. We like to believe that because of that, you’ll find it nicer than the rental-only houses available.

Our house is directly on the public beach of the largest lake in our community. You literally walk out of the house, through a short path through the trees, and you’re on the beach! Besides the gorgeous lake, the beach has a playground, picnic tables, and bbqs for everyone’s use.

The 2000 square foot house is clean and modern with a nautical décor, and features brand new hardwood flooring. There are four bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and two full bathrooms (one with a shower/tub, one with a shower stall). One bedroom has a small sofabed so if you’re travelling with children, they can stay with you in your room. We have a large, sunny great room with an 8-person dining table and living room with a wood-burning fireplace and ipod dock. The kitchen is fully equipped with range, microwave, pots & pans, dishes, hand mixer, toaster oven, coffee maker, utensils and more. Sliding doors from the living room lead onto a large uncovered deck overlooking the lake. Doors from the dining room and kitchen lead onto the screened-in porch, with another 8-person dining table. Eat in the clear mountain air! There is a propane bbq on the deck as well for those summer cook-outs!

The top floor has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Downstairs, you’ll find the 4th bedroom (with the sofabed), and the 2nd bathroom. In addition, there is the large family room. Here you’ll find the 42” flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and Netflix. Also a wood-burning stove, an air-hockey table, a game table, and numerous books, board games, and family appropriate DVDs for your enjoyment. We also have high speed wi-fi throughout the house. Sliding doors from the family room lead to the beach, and your own private fire pit! Mmmm . . . s ‘mores . . .

We are family and dog friendly. We have provided a high chair, a pack and play (with an extra thick special mattress, not those thin cardboard ones that usually come with them!), a gate for the stairs, and baby/toddler books and toys. Feel free to bring your furry family members along too! Doggie bed and bowls available. But please note that dogs are not allowed on the beach.

The house is located in the gorgeous community of Locust Lake Village. This community includes 5 lakes, 3 with white sandy beaches and lifeguards throughout the summer. There is a snack bar, playground, and picnic area at each lake. The community has activities and classes planned throughout the year. Other recreational facilities in the community include: A baseball field, a basketball court, shuffleboard, bocci ball, and even its own skiing hill and ice skating. Also, Locust Lake was rated 'Best in the Country Trout Fishing' by Pennsylvania Game and Fish. The Village is surrounded by 21,000 acres of Brady’s State Gamelands—you’re truly in the woods!

Locust Lake is a perfect location to all activities and attractions, all year round. This property is conveniently 10 minutes away from Jack Frost/Big Boulder Ski Resort, which has tubing, downhill skiing, and snowboarding. Split Rock, a 10 minute drive, is a resort with the H2ooooooh water park, mini golf, a movie theater, and more. Camelback Ski/Water Park, horseback riding, paintball, whitewater rafting, golfing are all within 10-20 minutes away, in the Lehigh River Gorge and Hickory Run State Park. The 100-store Tannersville Outlets are also only a 20 minute drive. NASCAR Pocono Raceway and the Mount Airy Casino are also only minutes away! For a longer day out, head over to the historic and quaint town of Jim Thorpe, or even to Philadelphia, Sesame Place, or Hershey Park.

This village is adjacent to a main highway, Route 940, only 5 miles from Routes 80 and 280. It is close to a shopping center containing an excellent grocery store. There are numerous dine-in and take-out restaurants nearby. A short drive down Rt 940 takes you to a shopping center which includes a Wal-Mart and a Lowe’s.

Come enjoy our home and everything the Poconos has to offer.

Awesome Spot! Convenient for Families/Kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property July 2nd-5th, 2017. The owners were terrific. Matt responded and took care of our issues immediately. Upon our arrival we had an issue with a portable AC unit in 1 of the bedrooms and the ceiling fan in the other and both were fixed/replaced in a matter of hours.The location is perfect for families with little kids. You are literally 10-15 steps from the beach. Little kids need to nap so you can put them to sleep and be back at the beach within a few minutes (an adult was always at the house for precautionary reasons of course). The back deck has a gate so we didn't have to worry about the kids escaping us and could roam freely wherever. The screened porch was awesome keeping the bugs out. The Locust Lake village community was the best one we've stayed at and this is our 4th year going to the Poconos. Access to events, disposing trash and of course the beach couldn't have been easier. The water temperature was great, lifeguards on duty, playgrounds/floats for kids and the folks all were very nice. Weather couldn't have been better, was 80-82 degrees all 3 days. We hope to return to this house next year and make it our annual spot!

perfect area

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time on our vacation at this location. What a convenience having the beach with all activities right outside your yard. The house had plenty of room for extended family. Everyone in the community was friendly and helpful. The kids had a blast with the activities that the lifeguards include them in each day at the beach.

The porch in this house is a homerun, nicely decorated, screened in and large enough for our big families to eat all together. Having it come with sheets, pillows and towels is a home run. We loved it so much we are already talking about booking for next summer.

Excellent vacation home for a group of families

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was fantastic. It was clean and provided every amenity that we could've ever needed (children and dog in tow). The proximity to the lake and playground made our stay even better since it was a minute walk to the beach. The multiple outdoor areas created fun spaces for all to enjoy. I would highly recommend this place to any family, group of families or friends.

Great spot for families

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a GREAT location for families. You are footsteps from the water and a little playground. There's also a sledding hill within the community should you stay here in the winter. The house, itself, is well-maintained and provides plenty of room for multiple families to spread out. We let the kids sleep in the 3 bedrooms upstairs while the adults continued the fun downstairs, and outback around the fire pit. This was a great vacation, overall, and I highly recommend this home.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

The house is in the perfect location, close to everything and lake view amazing. Screen porch is where we ate every evening for dinner and the deck perfect place to just relax. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. Matt answered questions promptly. Thank you Matt & Abbie for offering your house to rent.

Beach home in the Poconos!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental, steps away from the lake/beach. We enjoyed the nautical decor which is not common for a Pocono rental. The enclosed porch for eating was also a really great bonus! It was helpful having the baby gates, pack n play, and baskets of toys for our 1 year old. A playground for all ages is just steps away.

We stayed over labor day weekend; there were many activities going on down at the beach (bbq, lobster bake, boat race, bonfire w/ dj). The beach was crowed and the DJ was loud until 11pm on Saturday night. If you were looking for those activities, this would be THE best house out of all of the rentals in this community. I'm sure other weekends are much more quiet. We did not use the tennis courts, but passed them when driving in and they were in excellent condition.

We would stay here again in the future.
