About Stephen Benigni

Currently living in New Jersey found that the increase crowds, high cost of vacationing and the traffic at the shore made 'getting away' a real chore.

Stephen Benigni purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why Stephen Benigni chose Lake Harmony Estates

Purchased this home for our future retirement and a place to enjoy family and friends all year round. Traveled in the area for ski trips my whole life and never considered the Poconos both a winter and summer retreat. Exploring the many diverse year around activities of the Pocono area it is easy to see why many people are vacationing, living and investing in this area so close to our major East coast cities.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Search many properties in the Pocono region and found that this property was 'home away from home' close a lake and beach, in a beautiful wooded setting, peaceful and safe community and yet offered lots of diverse summer and winter activities for the whole family.

Cozy winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home. The homeowner was very easy to work with and the property was great. My friends and I had a great time over the NYE weekend and will be sure to look for this home for future vacations.

Great house, comfortable rooms

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed for the weekend. It's a very nice and comfortable house that feels very cozy. The hot tub is great on cool evenings and the beds are very comfortable. Multiple bathrooms make the morning routine easy. Great stay! Will come again.

Communal, Cozy, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I loved this home. All the rooms and kitchen open into the living room that has a fireplace providing a great communal, bonfire like experience with friends and family. Each room has it's own bathroom which was very convenient. A major plus for the in deck hot tub where we were able to fit 7 people in at once. The home is a few minutes from Jack Frost and about a 5-10 minute walk down to the lake. During my stay, the lake was frozen where we were able to walk on and have fantastic photographs. Stephen was very responsive throughout the entire booking process and I highly recommend a stay here.

Fabulous deck!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for the Split Rock Wine Festival. The location was perfect since it was within walking distance. The house is comfortable and the deck is fabulous. We loved the setup with a large table, grill and hot tub. The fire pit was very nice as well. There were plenty of comfortable beds.

Fantastic Time!

  • 5 of 5

The place is great, it is a home away from home. I have been coming for the past three years and I do not see that changing anytime soon. The home is in great shape, it is close to great places to eat, ski, and have a great time, Very family friendly. Thanks a lot for the stay!!

Home away from home (with a hot tub!)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home for a long weekend with a group of siblings, their spouses, and 2 kids. The outdoor sunken hot tub on the deck was awesome, it was perfect for relaxing after a day of skiing or tubing. The open floor plan on the main floor was really great for a large group, the ladies could be cooking in the kitchen and still interact with the guys watching football on the couch and the kids playing games at the kitchen table (we could never do that where any of us live in NYC!). The other big plus... 3 full baths and 1 half bath, perfect for a large group of people needing to get ready each morning!

The owner was really helpful and told us what activities and restaurants were in the vicinity and was quick to answer any calls I had while figuring out what we needed to bring to the home... which was basically just food! The house has all sorts of games (card and board) and he had stocked the firewood for the wood stove. The location is perfect: less than 10 minutes to Big Boulder and less than 15 to Jack Frost and route 80 and it's right down the road from the lake. Even though it was close to everything, it also felt worlds away... it was quiet and we saw deer each morning wandering around the property and crossing the street. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a home away from home in the Big Boulder/Jack Frost/Lake Harmony area.
