A lovely week at the lake, with a few "quirks"

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this property with my family and 2 other couples, one of whom had a toddler. Overall, the week was lovely. The house is in a fantastic location - the house looks over the beautiful lake and is located within walking distance of a few restaurants. The house provides 2 kayaks, and there's a paddleboard rental right next door for $20/hour. The house was clean and in pretty good condition. There's a great deck with rocking adirondack chairs and a nice big table for eating al fresco.

The thing we wished we had known before booking the house is that there is no air conditioning upstairs where the bedrooms are. Because the upstairs has so many windows and very high ceilings, it is difficult to cool it down when it gets hot. Though the temperature certainly drops at night and there are several fans (both ceiling and portable), sleeping was not always comfortable.

Some other "quirks" to note:

- The 3rd bedroom, which holds a full bed, is very, very small and dark. With our belongings and a small portable crib for our baby there was barely room to walk around. We wound up folding up the crib nightly and ultimately swapping rooms because it was just too cramped and warm.

- The bunk beds in the 4th bedroom (which is also very, very small) are actually flimsy cots, not real beds! Thankfully we did not need to utilize those beds, but if we had, there would have been some discomfort.

- Other than the one in the master bedroom, there is only 1 bathroom in the house and it is located on the 1st floor, downstairs from the bedrooms. This can be a little frustrating for those not staying in the master bedroom, especially for middle-of-the-night bathroom trips. Additionally, there is no bath tub in either bathroom, which proved difficult for bathing the 2 young children we had with us.

All of this said, we really had a lovely week. As long as you know the home's "quirks," and they don't deter you, you can enjoy your time in this beautiful lakefront location.

The best view in lake harmony

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was great. The view was out of this world! We had four children along with us and they kept busy the whole week. There was always something for them to do either inside or outside. I would recommend this house to everyone. We had a great week!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The location on the lake is perfect. There are great views with calm water. The location in the neighborhood is perfect. It is down a quiet lane and very private. However, it is within walking distance to numerous places to eat or get a drink. The owners were perfect. We had a little problem with getting the internet to work and they were very quick to get it working again and they were very apologetic. The house itself is perfect. There is plenty of room to sleep at least eight people and the main living area is large enough to comfortably hang out. I can't wait to go back because as you know, it is absolutely perfect!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome time on Lake Harmony. The house is very private, clean, and well maintained. The owners are very responsive and friendly. Used the two Kayaks all the time, our daughter loved this. Spent a lot of time fishing off the dock, caught tons of perch and sunfish plus a 12 inch bass. We also went horseback riding, spent a day at the camelbeach waterpark, did the 25 mile rails to trails bike ride down the Leigh Gorge, and then went to the outlets for back to school shopping. The Perseid meteor shower reached its maximum while we were visiting and this was a real treat. We sat on the dock and because the skies are so dark I have never seen shooting stars this bright.

We have been coming to the Poconos now for a few years and I like it a lot better than the beach for summer vacation. There is stuff for everyone in the family to do. I highly recommend this house, you can’t go wrong.

Awesome home, even better location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Lake Harmony. The home, as others have said, is absolutely wonderful and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. After touring around Lake Harmony a few times during our stay we can not imagine a better location. Our two children (8 and 5) spent the majority of their time in the water (perfect depth for both kids) using the kayaks provided, fishing, or swimming. The home is nestled in a "no wake" zone. That was HUGE so that our children could enjoy the water without having to worry about boats and waverunners zipping by.

We (the adults) spent most of our time on the porch and waterside enjoying the views while being able to watch the children play at the same time. We also enjoyed walking to breakfast, getting coffee, ice cream, etc. Lake Harmony Watersports, next door, was great to try new things (new to us anyway) like stand up paddle boarding, tubing, and wakeboarding.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Pros: The house is nice, spacious and clean. The views and location are absolutely beautiful. There are a few restaurants, an ice cream shop, a cafe and a little convenience store with in walking distance. There are also some bigger stores a short ride away. The lake is great for fishing and boating. Close to a lot of things to do. Horseback riding, rafting, golf, and Paint ball if your into that. The owner, Candace is really nice.

Cons: The Beds in the master bedroom could be upgraded with a better mattress and a headboard. The cable/satellite provider should be upgraded and a better package with more channels should be selected. Also, the TV in the living room should be upgraded to at least a 40 inch flat screen HD Tv. Its hard to watch anything on that old tv. The Wifi strength should also be increased. When you have a full house using wifi it slows down to a crawl.

Overall we had a great time and would recommend this house to other people who like a calm relaxing place. It gets super quiet here at night. Our cons might not be cons for a lot of people. We just like watching tv and movies at night.
