Relax on the lake with our private dock or hangout by the lakeside picnic table with some friends. In the winter, enjoy the snow wonderland right at our back yard--view is just amazing with the snow covered trees and lake. Surround the fire pit at night or count the stars while soaking in the tub...

Largest indoor water park (Kalahari) is just next door to us and Camelback ski mountain is also short drive from us (book mid-week dates and pocket the mid-week ski lifts specials).

WELCOME to our well loved and cherished lake house in the heart of Poconos! We are close to all Pocono attractions like Camelback ski, Kalahari(largest indoor water park), outlet shopping, etc. Just because you are away from home, doesn't mean you should be less comfortable than being home.

We also have a crib and high chair if you bring a baby (just like us!).

Professional cleaning crew will make sure all are clean and ready for you.

Two levels of living provide your group plenty of room to spread out. Both levels have double glass door walkouts to the private, beautifully landscaped backyard with amazing lake views! Upper level walks out from dining room to a deck furnished with another dining set and gourmet BBQ grill. And the lower level walks out from game room to a covered patio with hot tub and many outdoor seats-- nice retreat area to spend quality time with family and friends while enjoying watching others from your group playing on the water. Paddle boat, canoe, kayaks and life vests are provided and free for you to use. Fish on our private dock, camp around fire-pit, chill on the hammock, or go out to swimming in the middle of the lake, your choice:)

Our 50 acre lake is private and quiet, with crystal clear water for pure relaxation. Start a fire up in the lakeside fire pit while lounging comfortably toward the the amazing, glass-like lake...let time slow down and let the evening fall on you.

This is the place where your family and friends will make memories and talk about for many years to come, so we will make sure everything goes right and smoothly for your stay. All we ask is please respect our house and our neighbors, and take the responsibility to remind your group when needed (especially when you have a large party). Please take good care when using what we supply so things stay new and clean for the next group of guests and for us too when we are getting ready to unwind.

Lovely Lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on the lake very much. The home was very comfortable and clean. The lake was beautiful and peaceful. We did see the eagles, one swan and a very friendly cat. No bears! There were plenty of outdoor seating choices. The outdoor pillows did help make it more comfortable. The lake, fire pit, and dock were great to sit by and use. The paddleboat was leaking by the pedals, but the canoe and kayak were used multiple times. We were surprised we didn't catch as many fish as the other reviewers mentioned. However, a local on Lake Wallenpaupack, where we rented a pontoon boat mentioned that the weather had been very warm prior to our arrival and that may have been why the fish were not biting. It was fun using the X-box, board games, and pool table. It was very helpful to have two refrigerators. Also having access to the Wi-Fi in the house was convenient. The air conditioning did not travel through the first floor very well, but luckily it wasn't too humid outside. The front door handle was faulty, and we contacted Sharon shortly after. She had the maintenance worker come out the same day, but the handle was still broken. We managed to make it work. However, the maintenance man did take out our trash which was very nice. Overall we had a great time at the house. We loved looking out at the lake from the deck and down by the water. Thank you Sharon for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Hi Milly, thank you so much for taking the time to write about us, and we are happy to hear you enjoyed many things our lake house had to offer. Yes, the lake is very peaceful for relaxing purpose...catch some fish and watch the wild (and not so wild) life go by. Maybe the fish didn't like the heat, but I heard summer guests caught big fish too. I alologize for the inconvenience of door handle fell off. We have changed to new door handle and is looking into paddle boat(we didn't know about leak or we'd fix right away). Leave bedroom doors open during day helps the cold air to travel through rooms. We are here to listen and improve all the time. And we are always available whenever you need us during the stay. Thank you again for treating our house like your own, and we hope to have your returns soon. Best, Sharon

The property was well kept, clean, fully accommodating for multiple generations of our family. Access to the lake and equipment were good. A great place to spend the week in the Pocono Mountains.

All that it was supposed to be & more!

  • 5 of 5

This home was immaculately CLEAN! I was so impressed with the upgrades the DeWitt's have made since we had booked in September.

Recommendations made by former renters had been addressed and the home was just more than we could have hoped for.

The fishing - which they don't mention - was also excellent, Perch, Bass, Pickerel, Sunfish & Fat Catfish (they love chicken livers) 2 Swans with 5 babies,

a Bald Eagle that made the daily rounds and so much more - what a GREAT vacation! Thank you also Sharon for your quick responses and also for opening

your beautiful home to our dog - so rare to find that feature in a truly wonderful vacation rental! Kayaking & the firepit were also family favorite events. We were 6 adults, 6 children & a dog and never had an issue with space. everyone was comfortable & happy!!!

Thanks again, you are a five star destination!
