About Norma Phillips

My wife and I have lived on the east coast for years and prefer car destination vacations over airplane. We have been up and down the east coast searching for great places to stay. We have 2 young children and call Delaware our home.

Norma Phillips purchased this house in 2004

Why Norma Phillips chose Poconos

We were looking for a place that was within 3 hours of our home in Delaware, and we loved adventure. The Poconos was a great area

that still felt undiscovered. There were so many unique and small little towns that speckled the area and we loved exploring them all. We loved to be on water so we could paddle and fish and just enjoy the outdoors. After doing a lot of looking we found this house on Lake Carobeth back in 2004 and set it up to be a vacation destination that our friends and family would love. The rest is history.

What makes this house unique

The Pink house sits high above the lake yet close enough that you feel so close to is. The sun hits the deck in the morning and it is the greatest place to wake up and have coffee and plan your day,

Both downstairs bedrooms have small little deck areas and direct views to the lake. When the sun comes up it just draws you to want to get out on the lake. That's why we provide rowboats and canoes so anyone can start their day off with an envigorating paddle. At the end of the day one can enjoy the indoor jacuzzi tub to relax and unwind.

GREAT home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved staying at this home. The view was phenomenal and this home just made us feel like we were in our own home. Every single room gave us a sense of warmth and coziness. We were extremely sad to have to leave. We would love to return for the summer; it must be awesome to be able to use the boats and go swimming in the lake. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your home. :]

Thanksgiving weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family (7 of us) spend very nice weekend at the "Pink house". House was clean, roomy and kitchen was well equipped. We loved sitting by the fireplace and watching the lake while it was snowing. Kids had fun playing games and watching deers. One thing that I would like to suggest to the owners is to think about new mattresses.

Owners are very nice and organized people.

I would definitely came back but this time in summer to enjoy beautiful lake :)

Best experience we could've asked for!

  • 5 of 5

Dan was absolutely amazing in accommodating us on such a short notice--we decided the night before that we wanted to get out of town for just a night, and he answered all of our questions and got us booked in less than 12 hours. We were able to arrive pretty late, and he was able to work with us for a later check out the following day so we had more time to enjoy the beautiful home. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience, and the house was perfect--before we even left we started making plans for the next trip back to the lake house, this time longer than one night! Thank you again Dan for everything, this was just what the four of us needed to unwind, relax, and have some fun! (The guys even got to experience a bear!)

Lovely Poconos Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fall weekend at this house. It was comfortable and suitable for our group of seven. Weather was not optimal for exploring the area so I can't comment on local amenities. The check in process was smooth and easy. Would highly recommend.
