For your convenience there is also a full sized, brand new washer and dryer.

The great room awaits you, with a wall of windows overlooking the lake. Gather here for your cozy evenings at home.

In the Fall - The beautiful colors of fall are reflected in the lake. Go canoeing or kayaking on the lake, the days are still sunny and warm. The nights are wonderfully crisp, and you can use the firepit outdoors for a wonderful evening under the stars. From November on cozy up indoors in front of a stunning gas fireplace and end your evening resting on the flannel sheets in each bedroom.

In the Winter - The home is spectacular! As the lake freezes over, skating or ice fishing is a wonderful way to spend your day. For snowy days, there is a sledding hill a very short drive away. Walks on the frozen lake are an adventure. Skiing and tubing is available at nearby Shawnee Mountain. Whatever the weather, warm yourself indoors by our freestanding gas fireplaces.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our Daughter calls this home 'Sparkle Hut', because of how the sun sparkles on the lake each morning. We spend lots of time outdoors with our family, and take advantage of all of the fun things to see and do in the Delaware River area.

Why the Owner Chose Milford, PA, USA:
Owning a home on the lake was important, and this is a stunning natural lake. Our family loves to canoe and kayak, and the lifeguarded beach down the street made this home a great choice for us. When this property became available, we jumped at the chance to restore it to the beauty we knew it could be. The grounds and setting were so nice, we made it so the lake could be viewed from the many, many windows in the home. We added all modern appliances, upgraded the bathrooms, and made the house as nice as the nature that surrounds this unique property.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Sparkle Hut is situated on a rare, triple size lot that is wooded and unbuildable on both sides for complete privacy. 180 degree views of the lake are unobstructed. A full lawn of grass lakeside provides a near level access to the lake. The house fronts the center of the lake at its deepest and widest part which offers the best views and boating opportunities. Community amenities including the beach, rec room, and restaurant are just a two minute walk. Sparkle Hut's privacy and location can't be beat. Why rent the Sparkle Hut? - privacy...no direct neighbors on either side! - 180 degree unobstructed lake views - 2 minute walk to the beach, rec room, & restaurant - basketball & tennis courts plus ballfields nearby - a level, green lawn right to the lake - one fee only (passes, cleaning, etc... .) - huge lakeside sunroom for lounging, games, or reading - 'birdhouse' is a smaller upper level sunroom w/skylites - located at the widest and deepest part of the lake - huge private dock complete with kayaks, rowboats, sailboats, and canoes - a clean house, top to bottom w/modern appliances - ample lawn chairs and hammocks for outdoor living - firepit with wood available - gas fireplaces provide comfort on chilly nights - ample board games, puzzles, and toys for all to enjoy - located in a quiet community within minutes of NJ.
