This is a great home to rent in the summer with the pool and lakefront location, but during the rest of the year (when the pool is closed), we drastically cut our prices and charge by your group size--so this becomes a wonderful alternative to a hotel room for a couple (or two) or a family who wants to go hiking, biking, or skiing or tubing. We have a new 5 person Thermospa hot tub on the Trex deck overlooking the lake--very private location and great lake view from the tub! Check our very reasonable prices under the "Rates" section--and there is no extra charge for up to 2 younger children. We are close (about 10 miles) to Big Boulder and Jack Frost Ski Slopes, and even closer (4 miles) to the White Haven access area of Lehigh Gorge State Park, which has a 26 mile multipurpose trail right next to the Lehigh River. Our weekend prices are the same for 2 or 3 nights, so you can stay the extra night, or just enjoy the convenience of checking out as late as you want on Sunday (watch your games before you go!) This house is within 3 miles of the upscale Powerhouse restaurant if you are planning a romantic getaway, and there are several other restaurants in the immediate area to meet any of your dining needs from pizza to diner to basic American to special occasion.
Now, back to those summer renters--we usually are pretty well rented by May, so please remember to contact us in the spring if you want particular dates!
This is the only lakefront Pocono rental we know that also has a full size inground pool! The pool is open from right before Memorial Day until the end of September. And the pool has a passive solar heater, so the temperature is always 5 to 8 degrees higher than it would be otherwise---It gets into the mid 80s during the summer!
Great house on one floor, with a 16' x 12' master bedroom with a large (60" x 78") window overlooking the pool and lake. That bedroom has a roomy 11' x 12' bathroom--and there are 2 other bedrooms and another full bath! The house will sleep up to 6 adults and 2 children (or other combinations that total 8 EXCEPT not 8 adults---it really isn't large enough for that many adults, and we don't like to cram people in). We do have other houses that sleep more on this same lake, so please find the link to our other homes on this same site.
This house is very nicely done, with new furnishings, carpetting, kitchen cabinets, countertops and appliances! We also have expanded cable TV and internet access with free Wifi. There is a large Mitsubishi wall mounted A/C in the living room which cools the entire floor. The house has a great view overlooking the lake with a mountain backdrop, so this is a perfect spot for relaxing on the deck or by the pool. And even though it is located in a lovely residential neighborhood, the house was built so there is complete privacy on the large deck---you can have your morning coffee or romantic drinks and dinner without feeling spied on! No one can see you when you're on the deck (unless they're in a boat on the lake). We are right by both the Lehigh Gorge Trail and Hickory Run State Park for hiking and biking enthusiasts, or you can spend a day discovering lovely Jim Thorpe, the Switzerland of the Poconos. If you like to just hang at the house, you can cook your meals in the new kitchen, or on the stainless grill on our full deck (with outside table and chairs) overlooking the lake. We have a new 55" LED TV in the living room, along with a 37" flat screen TV in one of the bedrooms, and we supply plenty of recent DVDs, too!
The pool has a passive solar heating system that raises the water temperature, and we have chairs, loungers and side tables for around the pool, too. Past the pool in the yard is the dock and the lake, and you have a pedal boat and a canoe for your use, too. We supply life jackets--both child and adult sizes. You will need a PA fishing license, but you will catch fish--the lake has mostly sunnies and large mouth bass, and plenty of them! There is also a firepit on the way to the lake with a nearby picnic table.
There is an upscale and historically interesting restaurant less than 2 miles away (The Powerhouse--click on the link on this site for their story and menu) if you're not into doing the cooking yourself. If you are, we have a top of the line stainless grill in addition to the all new kitchen. Conveniently located less than 2 miles from the Route 80 White Haven exit , so none of that backroad driving. You can spend your vacation relaxing instead of motoring around! We are near Lehigh River white water rafting, Jack Frost/Big Boulder and Split Rock's indoor H20 waterpark. and within a half hour's drive to Jim Thorpe, Mohegan Sun Casino and the Outlets at Tannersville.
There is a new full size washer and dryer in the master bathroom and there is a driveway with room for 2 cars, with another parking spot on the street in front of the house.
