CHARLES "Chick" HATTON purchased this chalet in 2009

Why CHARLES "Chick" HATTON chose Poconos

Our eldest son and his wife had been coming to Brier Crest for years . They loved the area so we both decided to build. We now get to enjoy this area with our entire family.

What makes this chalet unique

The community is small and safe with a security team and one entrance/exit. Our grandchildren take off for the lake to fish, the beach to swim or just take a hike. We feel comfortable that they are safe and having fun.

Amazing home for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our second visit for an annual family reunion in this beautiful home and will definitely be going back! Our family has rented many different homes over the years and this is one of the nicest we've stayed in. It's spacious and clean, very well-maintained, and the kitchen is fully stocked. We had 13 adults and 8 kids (from ages 4-80) and there was something for everyone. The front yard had a large grassy area for games of spikeball and corn toss (we brought our own), and the deck had two large comfortable tables with plenty of chairs to hang out in all day long. We also liked walking to the lake for fishing and/or swimming and the neighborhood streets were great for biking and walking. We were stuck indoors because of rain one night and the pool table and shuffle board were perfect entertainment for kids and adults alike.

Chick, the owner, was incredibly responsive and great to work with whenever I had questions. He even had a welcome basket on the table when we arrived with basic essentials. All in all, I would highly recommend this beautiful home!!

Remote area to rest and rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Chick was an incredible host and even prior to the stay, was back and forth in rapid communication with me. Any issues that arose were quickly handled. His kind and concerned way of handling everything felt that he truly cared about not just his home but how the guest experience was. I highly recommend!

Perfect Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

This home was simply magnificent. Perfect set up whether for multiple families, men/womens weekend, reunions or just a simple quiet getaway. Perfectly located from major highways and tourist attractions. Having 2 coffee makers and 2 toasters was a big asset for our large group. Property was well maintained and very clean. Will definitely rent again.

Clean, spacious house in a great location; perfect for big groups

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a group vacation. Our group consisted of adults and small children. We spent 4 days, 3 nights in this beautiful home. From the beginning of the process, the owner was a pleasure to work with - very responsive and helpful. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish.

When we arrived, the house was immaculate. It had everything we needed with space for everyone to enjoy. The owners left a thoughtful welcome basket with instructions and some basic supplies.

The location was great. During our stay, we visited Kalahari, the indoor waterpark and arcade (about 20 minutes away) and Jack Frost Ski Resort for some snowboarding and snow tubing (about 10 minutes away). The supermarket (Ahart's), liquor store and CVS were just a short drive away as well. It snowed while we were there and the kids were able to do some sledding right outside the house.

I would highly recommend this home and this owner. It was just what we needed for our large group. The kids are already asking when we can go back!

Perfect Porperty

  • 5 of 5

We rent two or three vacation houses every year all over the United States. I can say without any hesitation that this house was perfect. We were a group of 20 and everyone had their own space. It did not feel crowded at all. The kitchen was very well equipped. The house was spotless. The pictures do not do it justice. It is much prettier and comfortable. The community is absolutely gorgeous. The owners were very helpful and on hands. The neighbors were very friendly. Plenty of activities to do. We had an amazing vacation. Thank you.

A Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family was very impressed by the Hattons' home and had a wonderful stay this past weekend. Mr. Hatton provided great customer service during the entire rental process. He was accessible and answered my emails promptly. He even checked in via text during our stay in case we needed anything. The home was beautiful and very bright. I love how the kitchen was fully stocked. There were lots of pots and pans, plates, cups and enough utensils for our group of 17. There were 2 coffee pots and even ground coffee in the cupboard. The Hatton's left us a nice basket with a lovely note to welcome us and some essentials: toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning wipes, etc. The house was immaculate and well maintained. Location of the home was perfect as it is situated on a quiet street. We spent a lot of time outdoors on the large deck and on the large front lawn. We also took a walk to the lake and played volleyball while the kids played nearby on the playground. In the evening, we sat around on the deck and played cards and just enjoyed the cool evening air. We felt so comfortable in the home. On Sunday, we drove to Terra Cottage Cafe for breakfast and dined outside on their covered deck since it was raining. Food and service was superb. I just called ahead and they accommodated our large group. By the time our food came, the sun had come out. It was just a perfect weekend! Looking forward to going back again! Thank you Mr. Hatton.
