This chalet has been recently remodeled with all new floors, paint and many new appliances. The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed, the second bedroom has a full/queen hand hewn cedar bed and the third bedroom is known as the kids' room. The third bedroom has tons of videos, board games, and nightlights. The chalet is fully equipped with silver ware, cook ware, two coffee pots (one keurig), a washer/dryer, two showers, a large private lower deck, and a full complement of firewood. There is also a tailgating grill outside and a one person kayak can be available upon request. The lake across the street is electric motor or paddle only and the fishing is catch and release as the idea here is to protect the environment. Less than half a mile down the street is a playground, a basketball court, and tennis courts that are included in the rental price. Plenty of listed amenities as well as the famous Poconos raceway, ski resorts, water parks, golf courses, and tons of scenic hiking and biking. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

About Sandra Clevenstine
We purchased this property last year because we have always wanted a mountain place with a real fireplace that was located in a natural setting. We enjoy geo caching, eating good food, shopping and taking scenic drives. While our main home is in Delaware, we are originally from Pennsylvania and something has been drawing us back home for years. We thought the winter would be our favorite time in the Poconos because we had visions of hitting the slopes, eating at the local brew pub, drying out by the fire, and then getting a relaxing supper at one of the local fine dining locations. The winter was fantastic, but this past summer we also had a blast playing tennis, walking the dog, mountain biking, and exploring lots of local trails. We will probably move up there after we retire, but until then, we would like to share our home with you. We only hope that you enjoy it as much as we have.
Sandra Clevenstine purchased this Chalet in 2011
Why Sandra Clevenstine chose Tobyhanna
We first fell in love with this area as we were biking through the nearby Tobyhanna State Park. We loved the lake, the beach the hiking, the biking, the fishing, the bird-watching and the many opportunities to photograph local wildlife.
What makes this Chalet unique
The great, private, yet central location is what truly made us fall in love with this property. Our neighbors are friendly, we are smack in the middle of multiple ski resorts and we can take advantage of both the local restaurants as well as take in a Broadway show. The location offers a multitude of options with something for everyone.

Property does not match the description
This was a nice property - clean and well stocked, however, it did not match the description that was given. The property is listed as lakefront, but it's actually across the street from the lake and in the back of a cul-de-sac. There were no lake views from the property and access to the lake was difficult without getting in the car and driving. The property was also listed as having a washer and dryer, however, when we arrived the washer had tape over it and said "do not use" and was dated Jan 2017. We contacted the owner who was aware that the washer was not in working order. She did refund us a small amount to make up for our inconvenience, however, we would not have selected this property had we known that we would not be able to do laundry. The other disappointment was that the grill was not usable. A previous renter mentioned that there were issues with the grill and it seems as if those issues have still not been addressed. The grill had been put away very dirty and as a result was rusted and not usable. This property would be suitable if you are looking for a place near local ski attractions, however, if you are looking for lake access/views as we were keep looking!
Sometimes problems arise. I called two plumbers to address the pipe issue and still refunded $50 for any inconvenience. Fifty dollars more than covers a load of laundry, right? There are two grills on the property. This is the first I am hearing of this problem but you can believe it will be addressed with the cleaning service. Apologies but I can't help you if I don't know there is an issue. I thought everything was great. In the future, please be fair and let me know if there is a discrepancy so it can be properly addressed. Good luck in your search for a property that better meets your needs.
Cozy and comfortable !
Our family had a wonderful weekend at this cozy home. Everything we needed. Beautiful decor!!
Thank you for your review! It was a pleasure doing business with you as well.
Nice little cabin hidden in the woods of this gated community.
Being it was the first visiting that area, we did not know the “check in” procedure with the gate/ main office. Those people were not the happiest or friendliest. But the chalet made up for it. Lots of space and only a short drive away from the retail stores. We did need to use the washer machine, so it was unfortunate that we couldn’t. However the chalet has lots of space for a family of four and we did enjoy playing board games and watching movies all weekend. We had a good time.
Was just as we expected & plenty of room for our family
Was within reasonable driving distance to all the ski resorts & other attractions. The owner was great at getting back to us quickly in regards to any questions we had.
Great place for cozy Thanksgiving weekend
My family and our two dogs stayed over Thanksgiving weekend. We loved the house. It was so warm and cozy with just the right amount of rustic. Sandy is amazing. She answered every question I had within hours sometimes even minutes of me sending off emails. We went for a short walk around nearby Tobyhanna Lake where there are trails and boat rentals, even a swimming beach if you visit during warmer months. The chalet is in a gated community which we thought was weird since there are no actual gates around but either way the house was exactly what we wanted. We did see deer everywhere around the property. Several walked along the road and grazed at the house across the street. I highly recommend this place for a cozy winter getaway and I see no reason why we might not return ourselves.
We took the kids and the dog and had a fantastic time. This property is well maintained and stocked so you can relax and enjoy. We were close to the activities we wanted to check out and able to run to the local supermarket for items we forgot. We had a few deer come right up to the deck and visit us. Really cool. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your cabin. We had a terrific time.
This location is prime for relaxation not only with the ski resorts nearby, but this chalet is also close to the Great Wolf water park, outlet stores and a nice complement of both casual and fine dining. The small nearby town of Mount Pocono has all of the living essentials such as banks, drug stores, grocery stores, liquor stores, a movie theater, miniature golf, miniature golf and most importantly, good pizza. This location is well known for deer and turkey sightings. If you like the eating, golfing and excitement that is associated with casinos, both the Mount Airy and the Mohegan Sun casinos are close to your temporary home. The local town also has affordable bus transportation into New York City if you wish to see an enchanting Broadway show. The quaint villages of Jim Thorpe and Shawnee are about 30 miles away and they both contain great pubs, arts, hiking, and whitewater. The Poconos have been a highly sought after vacation spot for generations. Come visit and you will see why our customers come back year after year. Enjoy!
