About Denise or Jeff Traub

My husband grew up in Richboro, PA. He graduated from Council Rock and Bucknell University.

I grew up in Fairless HIlls , graduated from Pennsbury and attended Rider University.

Denise or Jeff Traub purchased this house in 2000

Why Denise or Jeff Traub chose Poconos

Since my husband's family had a property in Lake Harmony, and he had fond family memories, we wanted to pass that along to our family. Our first house we built on Sky Drive, but wanted to be on the lake. So we bought the Lake House property, which was just an old fishing cabin. We eventually tore down the original house, and built the home that stands today. We are now retired and live here full time.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like being on the lake. Just wonderful to sit on the covered porch in the morning while it is calm and watch the sun rise. Or to sit on the porch during a rain storm. We have a beautiful yard that leads to a covered dock. You will feel like you have come home the moment you walk in the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We re so glad you had such a good time. Being right on the lake makes it so easy, especially for the kids. And as you found out , it's nice to be able to walk to restaurants.

We are very happy that you will be returning next year.

Perfect lake front home for relaxing family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this location in the winter (three adult couples) that we returned this summer with our children and their grandparents. The lake was beautiful and clean. The house was a perfect layout for everyone to spread out and yet come back together at the large kitchen table or many couches. We used the extra office space as a play area for our young kids. We loved the dock with the table and the bar and ate most dinners there. We loved the covered porch for relaxing after the kids went to bed. We enjoyed taking the kayak out every morning and fishing throughout the day. We also had Rob from LakeHarmonyWatersports take us out for some activities and rent us a SUP. We also drove to the nearby park for some hiking. As my 5 year old said: It was the best vacation ever!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was a huge success this year thanks to this wonderful Lake Harmony home. The minute you arrive you feel welcomed and at home. It has everything you could ask for and more. We all enjoyed sitting down by the lake at the outdoor bar area, playing horseshoes, smores at the fire pit, and fishing at the dock. The weather didn't always cooperate but that didn't matter because the house had so many amenities that we kept ourselves occupied all the time. We all can't wait to return. Thanks Denise for everything !!

Fabulous and Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren joined us for a weekend at the Traub's beautiful home. We had the pleasure of meeting them the day before...such warm, friendly people. Fabulous setting by the lake and the back yard was beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching an occasional boat go by the first evening..so peaceful looking out over the lake with the fall foliage. Unfortunately, it rained hard the next day, but we all had great fun anyway..the little ones found the toy box, we played games, watched a movie and the older ones enjoyed the wonderful finished basement, playing shuffle board and watching football. We were all felt very comfortable there...just like home! My husband and I had a great breakfast at Terra Cottage Café and Gifts and proceeded to do a little fun shopping there the day before the kids got there. Of course, a big family breakfast at Piggy's was a great way to wrap up the weekend. Thanks, Denise and Geoff!!

Great Anniversary Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as pictured. Very open, well appointed and comfortable. The house is definitely the cleanest I've ever rented. Denise was fantastic. She even left champagne for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary. The property is very nice, the deck down by the lake was perfect for relaxing and having a drink. The deck on the main level has a great view of the lake. The house is perfect for a family get away. I have rented homes from North Carolina to Maine and this is definitely one I will go back to.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We work very hard at trying to make our guests feel at home. Our home is a little bit different, in that we do live here and rent when we are away. I am so glad you had a nice anniversary weekend and look forward to your return.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful relaxing week for our "lake house" family vacation! The Traub's home was exactly as pictured but even better in person! Beautiful, clean, cozy home. Fabulous setting overlooking the beautiful lake. Perfect location to walk to Piggy's for a great breakfast and Nick's for a dinner overlooking the lake. We appreciated all the care taken to make the home comfortable for the guest, the kitchen was well stocked, the home was clean, everything we needed. Loved the covered deck at the lake for playing games during the day, the quate pit and fire pit made for some fun times! Appreciated being able to bring our family pet. Denise was always attentive but never intrusive. Loved spending time looking at all the pictures of the Traub family adventures.

Already have booked for next year! That says it all!!
