CHARLES "Chick" HATTON purchased this chalet in 2009

Why CHARLES "Chick" HATTON chose Blakeslee

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.

Fun Winter Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 adults and 9 kids and everyone had plenty of room to spread out, have fun, or settle down if need be. The bedrooms are towards the back of each floor, so the young ones were able to nap without everyone having to be super quiet. There's a door at the top of the stairs separating the first and second floors, so we didn't need to worry about the little ones and the stairs and it also helped control the noise. The kitchen was well stocked, the pool and shuffleboard tables were a big hit, and we were able to watch playoff football, kids tv, and non-sports shows all at the same time. Everyone was happy! Owner was excellent to work with. Will likely be returning!

Amazing Home for Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We, group of 8 adults and 5 children, rented this home for a getaway and get together in December 2018. We all loved the home. This is a perfect home for people like us to enjoy the home away experience.

This is home is very well maintained, that we have never seen this kind of rental home that is so clean and neat. Very spacious bedrooms, kitchen, family and living rooms. There is no place for boredom in this home, as you find either games, books, movies or TVs at every corner and room.

Home owner "Chick Hatton" is very professional, courteous and prompt in communications. We would surely choose this home for our next get away.

Although it was far from many attractions, we had no problem driving to places as it was close to interstate 80.

Pleasant , Neat and Accommodating Home

  • 4 of 5

Our overall our stay at this property was enjoyable. The home provides all needed materials as

advertized. Our second family reunion went as smoothly as it can be.

The only issue was the internet connection it kept going off and on.

Chalet in the Poconos

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful chalet met all of our expectations. For a family vacation for 22, it was ideal. The seven bedrooms and loft accommodated us nicely and everyone slept well after a day of exploring the area. Located in a quiet community close to great hikes and wonderful waters, we enjoyed each day there. We BBQ'd on the deck while 14 children played in the yard. The pool table was the biggest hit with the kids. It was hard to get a game in, as they each tried to outdo each other.

The beach, just across the lake, was very nice and the water warm enough to swim in.

We worked up the courage to hike the "Shades of Death Trail" and were rewarded with beautiful scenes along the river. We ventured to the "Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm" and were transported back 150 years in time. The kids loved it and a couple adults didn't want to leave.

It was a wonderful vacation! The owner was fabulous to deal with, with timely communication, advice on things to do and was very welcoming from the moment we made our reservation though the end of the trip.

The perfect home for a large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

I can't possibly say enough wonderful things about this home! The layout of the house is perfect- with bedrooms in the back of the home and living space in the front. Early risers didn't bother those who wanted to sleep in and those that stayed up late laughing and hanging out did not disturb the kids who were already in bed! The downstairs room with the pool table and shuffleboard gave us hours of entertainment and fun. The second refrigerator in the lower level of the home was so beneficial to our large group! The community the house is in is beautiful! The beach was the perfect setting for our group. The men enjoyed fishing in the lake while the kids swam for hours. Because of the amount of wooded area in this community, the home feels secluded and private despite its close proximity to the beach and tennis courts. The owner of this home, Chick, is a delight to work with and is helpful every step of the way! We couldn't have felt more welcomed in this home! I highly recommend this rental to anyone considering a stay in the poconos area!
