About Christopher Lerario

My wife and I live south west of Philadelphia I am a Facilities Manager and my wife, a Pharmacist. I went to school close by (Bloomsburg State University) and my wife, Lyn graduated from Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. We worked hard to purchase our mountain retreat and are very proud of it. We take good care of it and pride ourselves on it's cleanliness. My favorite spot in the house is the rear upper deck where you can hear and see the activity at Big Boulder or else sitting in the hot tub doing the same. The skies are usually clear and the mountain air crisp and rejuvenating.

Christopher Lerario purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Christopher Lerario chose Lake Harmony

We wanted to find a market niche. An affordable six bedroom house where guests can let their hair down and have fun and not have to shell out a fortune.

What makes this chalet unique

The open kitchen adjoined by a breakfast bar into the living room and dining area make this an ideal gathering place for familiy and friends. The downstairs is the party place while the upstairs is quiet if you want to get away from the crowd. The home is warm, comfortable and welcoming.

Nice for a Weekend Getaway

  • 3 of 5

We spent 2 nights with another family during the week between Christmas and New Years. This is a clean, comfortable house convenient to Jack Frost and Big Boulder ski areas and Lake Harmony. Home is older with small bedrooms and bathrooms but was more than sufficient for our short stay. The owner was quick to respond with one or two questions we had upon arrival. We enjoyed ourselves and would consider returning.

Nice place for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 people in the house for a golf outing and it fit everyone comfortably. The house had everything need to cook and grill. It had a hot tub, which was nice and relaxing. It was an overall good experience and I would return to this house next time I am in the Lake Harmony area! Thanks Chris for making it a painless experience.

Charming, large, well-equipped. Delightful

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a summer weekend with some old friends; what a lovely home! It had everything we needed, it was not too stuffy in the summer heat, and the hot tub was lovely.

The owner was very responsive regarding the rental and with questions.

5/5 would stay again!

Not bad

  • 3 of 5

Nice big house with a lot of space. But it was hot without air conditioning. Kitchen well stocked but the knives were blunt. We had problems visited the beach because Christopher did not pay for this. We had to ride on a private beach and pay. That coasted us another $200. I called to Christopher about this issue he said that there some mistake but he hadn't phone of management so I went to the beach try to resolve this problem but there no one want to speak with me. So finally we decided go to the Split resort beach.

Owner's Response: Alexandra, I do apologize for the problem you encountered at the beach. I am addressing that directly with the Property Owners Association and I guarantee future renters and you that it will never recur. I have replaced the steak knives with sharper knives. Insofar as the air conditioning is concerned: I do not have central air conditioning in the home. It is contained in the website. I have considered installing it but in that case I would have to increase my rates dramatically. There are normally only 3 to 4 weeks in the year where air conditioning might be needed but usually evenings are cool and there are plenty of fans in the home. I pride myself in being able to rent this home at a reasonable rate for larger families. I would like to keep it that way. Alexandra, if you would like to rent again in the future, I will give you a good discount to help remedy your concerns with beach staff and the dull knives. Sincerely, Christopher Lerario, Owner

Nice, well maintained house with plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for the weekend with several friends, the house was in very good shape and had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The bar area next to the deck downstairs was a great spot to hangout. The house was also located close to several restaurants and bars, and for skiers Big Boulder was around the corner. I'd recommend this house to anyone looking.

Car: recommended

This home is private but close to everything. Restaurants, Children and Adult activities. Pocono Raceway is a few minutes away. Private beach tags are included with rental as is a tennis key for courts near the lake.. There are plenty of restaurants and bars close by. 100 store Tanger's outlet is close by. Nights are starry, crisp and clear. You will feel great just being there. Wildlife is abundant. Galleria at Split Rock Lodge (less than 1 mile from house) has large game room, indoor water park, bowling alley, movie theater.

Please be mindful that there is no central air conditioning in this home. It is rare in this area that it would be needed since the evenings are usually cool. There are a number of fans in the home however in the event you would like a cross breeze in the summer months.
