About the property

Sleeps 12. 4 Bedrooms. 3 Baths.

Come stay at our, 3 story, chalet in Big Bass Lake, a private gated community in the Poconos. We rent weekly, weekends and holidays.

Start your morning off with a cup of coffee on your very own private deck off of the master suite. On a cold wintery day spend your time in front of the fireplace or in our 6 person hot tub. Enjoy your summer swimming in one of the three beautiful lakes in our community or at the in-ground pool.

This 4-bedroom chalet sleeps 12 adults and features 3 full baths, central air and heat, 2 gas fireplaces, wireless internet access, basic cable connected to 3 televisions, and ceiling fans in every bedroom. Three of the bedrooms have queen beds, and one bedroom has a twin size bunk bed and a trundle bed that pops into a king. The loft (there is a full size futon in the loft) and the master bedroom are on the upper level. The kitchen, living room, dining room and laundry room are on the main level with a large deck right outside the front door and a screened-in porch right off the dinning room. Downstairs you will find a second living room and a game area with a ping pong, air hockey and foosball tables. The house also provides DVDs, board games, and video games for you to use as you please.

The house is within walking distance to the Big Bass Lake beach area and is a short drive to the community outdoor pool, indoor heated pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, as well as ice skating area, ski slope and snow tubing hill in the winter. Skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, water parks, horseback riding, and shopping are all within 25 minutes of our house. Some of the major ski resorts in the area are Camelback, Jack Frost and Big Boulder, Elk Mountain, Shawnee and a host of other ski resorts. We are also close to Pocono Raceway, Tannersville Outlet, Mount Arie Casino, Bushkill Falls and many other attractions of the Pocono Mountains.

Awesome House!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Hatala Chalet, it was a group of 9. Everyone was very much pleased especially the fact that the house was so very spacious and extremely clean. I will definitely be booking this house again. The pictures don't do this house any justice! The realtor was so welcoming and easy to do business with.

Great House and Location! Big Bass Realty is very helpful and easy to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

I went up to this house with a group of 8 and it was great. The location is perfect and there are plenty of stores around to buy necessities (Dollar General right at the corner.) It's a great location to all activities and everything is a short drive. The house itself is very neat, clean, and entertaining. We used the ping pong table most, but it also has air hockey, foosball, and video game consoles. There is plenty of room to sleep and enough room in the house for 10+ people. The hot tub is a great addition for the nights when it gets a little cooler. It is located at the end of a cul de sac, and it's a good distance from the other homes around you (with a long driveway for plenty of parking). There is security gates in the community, but once they issue you a badge, you're all set. I'd highly recommend this house to anyone and would stay here again. Donna was very helpful and answered any questions I had regarding the property. Great weekend vacation

Beautiful home - but needs updating

  • 4 of 5

The house was really cozy and gorgeous. My group of 8 people all couples stood for two nights and had so much fun together. This was our second time staying at a home in big bass lake. Donna is really nice and great to work with. The house was just the right size for all of us. The hot tub was a little small for 8 people only a few of us could fit at a time but it was really relaxing. Big bass lake had the snow around he hot tub removed as well as the drive way which I thought was great. The air hockey table worked great we had a lot of fun playing that and ping pong. The game systems play station 2 and Nintendo 64 really really great to have with the games that actually worked. Me and one other girl were so excited to see they had guitar hero until we realized the disk wasn't working because it was cracked in half. So dissappointing!! Another big thing for us that didn't work was the DVD player in the living room. It worked but then every DVD we watched would glitch and it would rewind itself and start from the beginning! We couldn't get through any movies and the house had so many good DVDs in the closet!! It was frustrated not to be able to watch any of them. We tried taking the DVD player from one of the bedrooms but we couldn't figure out how to hook it up right and just ended up watching Netflix. We also didn't bring any hand towels with us and had nothing to take trays out of the oven with because the home didn't have oven mits or anything! We burned our hands a few times but we should've brought something just in case but we assumed the house would have even a crappy old mit somewhere! The bedrooms weren't big but a fine size for all of us. I stood in the master bedroom but the comforter wasn't really comfortable we were really happy they had extra blankets in the closets that I found in the middle of the night! Overall, the house itself is really beautiful we all loved it but not sure if I would pick it again unless those several things were for sure going to be changed.

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear that your group enjoyed the house, I'm very sorry for any of the troubles you ran into and we really appreciate you letting us know so we can remove the DVD player and the one broken video game. It's really disappointing to get part way through a movie for it only to be interrupted and restart. I know there​ are three other DVD players in the bedrooms but I understand that you don't want a whole group to gather into a bedroom. We do check through all the video games every couple weeks to make sure they aren't broken but that must have just happened so we will definitely remove that straight away. I was surprised when you said you couldn't find any oven mitts because we have one or two oven mitts, an oven glove and several silicone pot holders that can also be used to remove things from the oven. I did double check with the cleaning crew and they confirmed they are all still there in the kitchen drawer. And yes the hot tub is a 6 person hot tub which you can comfortably fit 7 people, beyond that it gets crowded. Best of luck with your next trip where ever it may be. Thanks, Sarah

Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 friends stayed at this GORGEOUS house this past weekend. When we walked in, we were stunned! The photos don't do this place justice. Endless fun with games provided, video games and hot tub! The house is on dead end which made it so quiet and serene. The kitchen was a big enough for us all to gather around. The house had more than enough space for us to enjoy! We are already planning a returning trip~
