About Anya

Our family fell in love with Lake Harmony after visiting it in summer of 2011. We love the neighborhood, swimming in Lake Harmony, and skiing at the numerous local ski resorts. We purchased this home in 2013 and are making it our own!

We had an option to sign our house into some big real estate company rental program but decided against it, and currently our daughter, Anya is working with all renters. While a rental company provides guaranteed revenues and no hassle for us, we want to know who stays in our home and look forward to establishing repeat customers through attention to detail. We are filling the home with our art and personal touches, and we will continue to invest in its coziness and comfort.

Your comments and feedback on how we can continue to improve the home and encourage you to vacation with us will be highly appreciated.

The Kroupnik Family Welcomes You!

Anya purchased this house in 2013

Why Anya chose Lake Harmony

Unlike the many Lake Harmony properties run by large real estate management companies, we are a family that love and take care of our home. There are special touches such as paintings, various accessories, and books and games that makes guests feel at home. You will enjoy this home like we do!

Great amount of space, not overly fancy

  • 4 of 5

For a getaway for three couples, one with a dog and a child, the amount of space is great. There are plenty of places to be together (and separate if need be). The kitchen took a little getting used to with the older stove/ oven as well as the tightness, but we did it. The spiral staircase also took some getting used to. The outdoor decks/ porches however didn't take any getting used to, they are amazing!! Anya was great to work with from beginning to end!!

Perfect for family ski trips!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in the Lake Harmony area. Large in part because of the gorgeous house we stayed in. Our daughter twisted her ankle just days before our ski trip and still had fun playing ping pong and pool while the rest of us hit the slopes. Perfect getaway property for our family. Great response from owner and answered all of our questions quickly. Thanks Anya!!!

A good place to relax and enjoy the area

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a long weekend in May, overall experience was very good. I dealt with Anya for most of the initial questions etc and she was great !! Always followed on questions, very pleasant – overall communication was great. The house itself was as described will go over some of the positives and also some things to note. For the positives each room had their own AC and heater. Both worked well, we only used the heat a bit, but that worked really well and really fast if you plan to spend time there in the winter. AC also worked well and it is really nice that each room had their own as everyone varies in how hot or cold they like a room. The loft was great – nice pool table and great deck. The ping pong table was in good shape but the hot tub was the best. A true 8 seat hot tub, worked well, was clean, that was great during the day and at night. Had a sauna, looked very nice and clean, we didn’t use it though but appearance wise it looked very good. The kitchen area and table was large can get a lot of people around that for meals. Kitchen appliances were good, coffee maker, mixer, toaster and toaster over, dishwasher no issues. And the gas grill on the deck is a good size and worked well – had to clean it prior though but that happens at rentals. Started right up, got very hot and they had 2 propane tanks.

A few things to note. The main item and not a criticism is the spiral staircase to the loft. Looks very nice but if there is someone that is elderly and not good on steps this may prevent them from getting to the loft. Also people with bad legs or a bad arm as there is the need to use the railing, just something to be aware of if anyone has those limitations the staircase may prevent them from getting to the loft. Also another thing to be aware of is the TV channels, basically NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and some local channels. TVs worked well and no issues however if you have young kids that plan to watch a lot of TV, might be good to bring a connector for a computer or a Roku. Again not a criticism of the house as much as just something to be aware of in your planning – none would have prevented us from signing on nor doing so again in the future.

Again experience was good, really nice area plenty of places to simply walk around.

WaWa, Dunkin, CVS, State stores are all about a 10 minute ride if you forget anything. Plenty of good restaurants to eat at all within a few minutes car ride.

Cardboard Classic

  • 4 of 5

Our group had a good time. There was enough room for all of us to spread out. The house was very clean (specially the bedrooms and the bathrooms). We enjoyed the hot tub and the sauna. The house is very close to both Jack Frost and Big Boulder. The owners directions were helpful. We were able to be comfortable and relaxed on our mini vacation.
