About the property

4BD+ loft 2 bath with washer/dryer - Secluded location perfect getaway

Situated on a quiet, semi private block this 4 bedroom + loft and additional walkthrough room with bunk beds is the perfect place for a family getaway. This cozy and comfortable chalet-style home seems charmingly remote, but in fact is within the private Arrowhead Lakes community. The home is surrounded by trees which can be viewed from every window, yet also gets a surprising amount of sunshine. It is a perfect nature getaway, offering a quiet retreat for sipping your morning coffee and relaxing. The large kitchen table is ideal for a family game night. The deck has a table and chairs as well as a nice gas grill. Besides the charming home, the amenities of the Arrowhead Lakes community are many. With 2 large lakes, clean beaches, and numerous events throughout the year, this charming Pocono community is the perfect destination to escape the stresses of everyday life. The house sits on the end of a cul-de sac with limited neighbors, so you really get the feeling of privacy. However, just about two blocks away is the Clubhouse, where family events take place and the best sledding hill in the region can be found (also horseshoe pits, basketball court, softball field, and playground in warmer weather). Beach #3 is the closest, and is just over 1/2 mile away at the other end of Towanda Trail.

Some of the other amenities you can expect to find at Arrowhead Lakes are:

* 3 swimming pools

* 2 fully stocked lakes

* Stocked trout creek

* 4 beaches with boat docks, playgrounds, food concessions, and fishing areas (Beach 3 is the closest, and is just over 1/2 mile away at the other end of Towanda Trail.) All pools and breaches have parking available. Bike and boat rentals available.

* Tennis, basketball and volleyball courts

*Horseshoe pits and bocce ball courts

*Grills and picnic areas

* Numerous community activities throughout the year

*New Lodge (a separate building from the clubhouse), with billiards, fitness room, library, lounge area, and many social events throughout the year, such as family movie nights.

Good house + Good Amenities + Good Location + Good owners = Great Time

  • 5 of 5

The house is at the end of the street, so it's a quiet, virtually untraveled road and backed up to the woods, so you get more of a secluded feel than you would from most other houses in the community. The house is stocked with things that I didn't even realize. So I brought a Roku....they had one. And I brought beach chairs....they had them. Something that is really unusual for a vacation home, they actually had really nice knives (if you like to cook). Best of all they have a huge stockpile of fire wood for the firepit/fireplace. The house is listed as a 4BR, but really it's a 5BR + plus a loft, so plenty of space for people.

Even more important than the house/amenities are the owners. We ran into a very minor issue upon arrival and the owners were very incredibly/immediately responsive and we had someone come and take care of the issue in about 15 minutes.

Very cozy and well-stocked.

  • 4 of 5

I especially like that the home is at the end of the road which means there's no one to really drive by. I love the secluded feel. It gives me the opportunity to really get to immerse myself in my natural surroundings which is truly peaceful.

President's Weekend Delight

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable house for the whole family. Lots of room for the kids and the adults, plenty of games and movies on hand for the renters to watch on multiple TV's. WIFI was good just a little slow at times but maybe due to all the adults and kids have wed enabled devices, a little overload here maybe. Plenty of warmth with a real fireplace and an automatic wood pellet burning stove. The listing was accurate, the house clean and neat. Nice and quite dead end street. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, beautiful home. You won't regret it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house the moment we walked in! The pictures were lovely but the home is even lovelier when you stay here! We were a group of 8 and still comfortably stayed in this home. We probably could've brought more people. Each room is filled with everything you possibly need to have a nice getaway. The kitchen was filled with condiments, pots, pans, dishes, cups, etc. for us to use. The living room and some rooms had TV's if you wanted to watch or play games. There were plenty of video games and board games, if you have any children, I'm sure they won't get bored. Even us 8 adults enjoyed them actually. Everything was fully stocked. Linens, towels, sheets, pillows, blankets, etc. were all clean and folded and ready for use. We had a light go out in one of the rooms during our stay, but there were lightbulbs in the closet as well.

We were there for a weekend that unfortunately happened to be during the big snow storm Jonas, so we were worried at first, but Russell and Juliet made it very comfortable for us to be able to enjoy the snow both in and out of the house. The nice fireplace and pellet stove heater keeps the house very warm. The snow was plowed very nicely so that we were able to move both SUV's and sedans comfortably out onto the main roads. Camelback, Mount Airy Casino, and the Outlet Mall are both about a little less than 30 minutes away, so that was nice that we were able to get out even while it was snowing.

Juliet and Russell are very responsive and helpful prior to and during our stay. I highly recommend this home! We would actually love to come back in the summertime as well :) Hope that was helpful!

A great home for a wonderful stay! Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house for a stay. We were a group of 8 and enjoyed the house very much. Every one was comfortable and there was plenty of place. The kitchen is fully stocked, and we enjoyed cooking our meals every day.

Very close to Camelback and other ski attractions.

Russell and Juliet were very responsive and answered all of my questions prior and during the trip.

If you want a great trip, book this wonderful home.
