About Donna

Our family purchased this home for our families vacations to escape lifes hustle and bustle, and as the kids got older we find our selves not using it as much. So we decided to rent it out to families like ours that need a little family time. Family is just you and your best friend or it could be you and 15 friends all of which could sleep here and CELEBRATE LIFE! LIFE is so uncertain just enjoy NOW for NOW and believe me later will come... ;)

Donna purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Donna chose Lake Harmony

We were blessed with this home after spending the last 4 winter seasons in pa skiing, There is so much to do in Lake Harmony from fishing to skiing water park and horse back riding. Our favorite season is fall when the leaves are changing and the rivers are full and the music from the fall festivals are playing.

What makes this chalet unique

The best is when the sun comes up in the morning and pokes through the windows, to feel the rays of sunshine on your face, grab a patio chair and sit on the deck and enjoy with a cup of coffee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome, wonderful time, loved the fact that the house had 3 floors and we could seperate my husband and my inlaws as well as the kids family my elderly parents who sleep early... it was time we were all together but had our privacy, it is in the woods so we did have to pull in firewood, fix a fire and get a few branches from trees to light. All the previous items had been fixed except someone took all utenils, went to piggys and got some from them at breakfast.. Highly recommended

Not as Advertised-Not well-maintained

  • 1 of 5

The house needs A LOT of work and has not been maintained well for years.

The house was not clean and had dust, grime, cobwebs and filth everywhere. Had to re-clean bathrooms-toilets were moldy/hair in tub. The ceiling is falling apart in many of the areas around the home, and the windows are dirty, old and drafty.

The vinyl flooring is lifting up in all of the rooms and is so dirty we had to throw away all of our socks! The lamps had dirt and cobwebs on the lampshades that made my allergies worse! The bedroom door frame splintered when closing the door! The counter tops are stained with burn marks in the formica. The picture is conveniently cropped online.

The bedroom closets are filled with junk and are not usable for renters. Available are stained flat pillows and dirty and stained blankets. The closets have not been cleaned in years. The pantry closets are filled with junk and are filthy and I would not trust putting food in them.

The microwave did not heat food well. It’s from the 1980s. The kitchen drawers had mouse poop in them and were filthy and all of the drawer covering is coming off. We did not use the silverware or dishes for fear of diseases.

The vacuum must not have been used in months, since it had a mouse nest in it and no bag, we tried the downstairs vac that emitted a terrible stench.

The sliding glass door in the family room does not close all the way properly, or lock, and it is shifting off of the upper track so there was always a small opening in it. It was very cold in the family room without a fire.

The master bath shower faucet is broken, so 6 adults had to share the main floor tub/shower. The water pressure has problems and hot water "bursts" when using.

Regarding the amenities...could not use the downstairs TV by the pool table or one in the main floor bedroom TV, because they are too old for digital cable and need adapters, which were not available. None of the DVD players had cables and could not be used. The backyard does not have a swing set mostly made up of boulders, very unsafe for small children. There is a Playstation 2.

There is no feasible way that a handicapped person could use this house. The downstairs bathroom has a shower, it is very small and wouldn't fit a wheelchair- no assistive bars in bathrooms.

LOVE the AREA!! Hiking, water pk, and paint ball and shopping nearby. Nick's Lake House great food and Shenanigan's fun- karaoke and dancing!

The area is beautiful. The web site promised many amenities that were not at the home. Could not use the hot tub, needed to clean the grill in order to cook, two forks for 12 guests, problems with beach access. Animals invaded the trash and made a mess twice.
