About Perri

We purchased this home in the spring of 2010 and have enjoyed lots of hot summer days hiking and swimming and cold winter days tubing and skiing. We currently live about 1 1/2 hours from our home in Bucks County PA. Our dream was to always own a vacation property in the Poconos and this townhouse has met all our expectations and has created many lasting memories. We hope it will do the same for you!

Perri purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Perri chose Lake Harmony

The inside of the home has been professionally decorated and meets all the requirements of a fun country home. If you like to spend time outdoors, there is a wonderful porch off the dining room with steps leading to a common grass area where you can start your hike. The view of Big Boulder from the back of the house and porch is truly unique.

What makes this townhome unique

This home is centrally located.....there are several restaurants, all within 3 to 4 miles. The restaurants are located in a little town with an old fashioned ice cream parlor (our kids love going for ice cream every night!!) Split Rock Resort is close by and offers a fabulous indoor water park for those cold winter days. Jim Thorpe and Hickory Run State Park are also within a 15 minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For the second straight Summer, we traveled all the way from our year round home in Florida and stayed at "Perri's Pad" for six weeks. We found everything excellent once again and were very pleased with some of the upgrades she accomplished. The arrangements she made at the beach club for us and our Grandchildren were smooth in every respect and her designated go to person was very helpful.

We also traveled around the area more this year than last and found her suggestions for fun things to see and do most constructive. And the charming way she has decorated her house made our almost weekly guests most comfortable and relaxed.

Staying again next Summer is on our schedule and she has been very accommodating in that regard, once again.

Thanks for helping us enjoy your place and our Northeastern family for the Summer, Perri. Looking forward to seeing again next July.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our good friends had the most fabulous and relaxing weekend at 8 Beachwood Court!! We were only there for 3 nights (June 15 to June 18, 2017) but, we are definitely planning to stay longer in the fall when we return with our kids!

The unit was very clean and spacious with plenty of room for our group of 6. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups and utensils. The décor was warm and inviting in addition to comfortable beds, couches and chairs. My husband and I and our friends loved sitting on the back porch at night, listening to the sounds from all around, and viewing the lake and mountain.

We also had a fabulous time taking exploring the area. There is so much to see and do within a short distance of this townhome! The quaint town of Jim Thorpe is a short 15 minute drive, Hickory Run State Park is great for hiking, and the beautiful Bushkills Falls is worth the half hour drive. Just outside the Big Boulder community are several great restaurants, but the unit comes equipped with a BBQ grill and picnic table and chairs so we were able to enjoy a few relaxing meals at home.

The owners were wonderful as well. They answered all my questions in a timely manner before our trip and followed up to make sure we had a great experience after our vacation.

Thank you for a wonderful getaway and we are looking forward to coming back again for an entire week!

I stayed here for three days for a girlfriends getaway and it was five of us. We had a fabulous time. Perri was so informative and helpful the entire weekend. The place was so beautiful and very clean. It snowed the weekend we stayed there and the scenery was stunning. I plan on returning for sure.

Autumn weekend

  • 4 of 5

This property was clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. It was the perfect place for our ladies weekend. Enough beds for all and TV's in every room. Everything was comfortable and cozy. Nice location for Jim Thorpe, wineries, hiking or just relaxing. We really enjoyed hiking in Hickory Run State Park which is very close. Perri was easy to reach and responded promptly.

Pleasant surprise!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was like a home away from home! Very spacious and clean. Full kitchen and cozy bedrooms were a hit. Master bedroom is spacious with a shower and tub. Kids enjoyed the extra sofa in the loft. My wife and I loved the deck out back which included a grill and a beautiful view of the woods. The area is nice and quiet at night and close to both lakes (Big Boulder and Lake Harmony). Home is close to many restaurants and locals' favorite ice cream place (Hog Heaven ice cream shop). Commnication with Perri was easy and quick...very attentive!! We can't wait to go back soon.

Lake Harmony is located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains and enjoys 4 distinct seasons that provides endless fun for the whole family. During the winter, this property is overlooking Big Boulder Ski Mountain and is close to Jack Frost and Camelback. Come out to enjoy skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing!! There is also great cross country skiing in many of the nearby state parks!! During the summer, enjoy swimming in the lake, hiking, biking, animal watching and tons of other fun outdoor activities. Come on up during the fall when the leaves are changing color and the scenery is beautiful and lots of fun fall festivals and events are taking place all the time. The spring is quiet, but this is a great time to relax, start to enjoy the outdoors and shop before it starts to get crowded for the summer!!

During the day, please spend the time outdoors enjoying all nature has to offer. Spend the evening enjoying theater concerts and performances. You will have a fabulous experience whether you are a hiker, biker, skier, snowboarder, botanist or water park lover!!
