Photos and Description of this Tobyhanna holiday chalet

Single Family w/ 3 Bedrooms - 1½ Bathrooms - Sleeps 8

Come and relax! Lakefront Chalet in a Natural Quiet Setting, Lots of Grass and Shade. Sit on your

private dock and read or watch the canoes go by on the 188 acre non motorized lake. Fish right off

the dock or take out the row boat with its 12 volt motor, relax on the paddle boat, take a morning

lap around the lake in one of 2 Kayaks, or just float about in an inner tube.

New Outdoor Sauna with view of the lake.... come make some Sauna Snow Angels!

Plenty of wood for chilly nights by the fire place and relaxing by the fire pit.

Four flat panel HD TV's (2 w/ Internet, free Netflix + Blu-Ray).

Wireless Broadband Internet.

This house is great for family vacations. Whether it's throwing stones in the lake, or enjoying

all our community has to offer, there is plenty to do to keep the kids busy.

About Nick and Jill Frezza

Jill and I live in New Jersey, have 2 kids and have been married for 26 years. We believe vacations are precious and want you to stay at a 'home' not just some vacation house.

Nick and Jill Frezza purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Nick and Jill Frezza chose Poconos

We've owned this house since 2008 and we've tried to make it a home away from home. There is something about this house that just makes you kick back. I don't know if it's the style, the beachy-country feel or what...I'm not sure. It's just that way. Our other house(check out HomeAway #3499507) has a completely different feel to it.

What makes this chalet unique

Location, Location, Location. Whether it's boats in the summer or just not having houses in your back yard have a house on the lake makes all the difference.

A perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect way to spend our 18th anniversary. Total peace and quiet. We should warn you that the lake can hypnotize you and make you not want to go back to work!

Everything we needed was there and we were completely comfortable. We had a blast paddling the kayak around and our dogs were fascinated by the ducks and geese and loved wading in the clear, clean water. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises over the lake and evenings by the fire.

The owners were warm, welcoming, and responded promptly to all email inquiries. They shared photos that gave a complete view of the property and all amenities. So it was an easy decision to choose this rental.

I'd highly recommend this wonderful property to family and friends. Don't forget to check out the nearby Tobyhanna State Park as it is one of the nicest state parks we have seen.

It is often hard to book a vacation spot based on just pictures so it is often a leap of faith...this place did not disappoint! Everything was immaculate and exactly as described. The deck and other outside amenities were awesome as well and we had a perfect stay. Once we discovered the right lure/bait and spots on the lake, we even had a successful fishing trip!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the place! It unfortunately rained while we were there luckily the owners had plenty of things for us to do. From board games to movies we had so much fun! We had one day of good weather and were able to fish and have a fire outside which was wonderful! I highly recommend staying here, the owners were great and very informative on things to do and places around the community to visit. We are already talking about next year staying here again! Thank you again for renting us this wonderful house!

We loved it here !!!

  • 5 of 5

We went on 3-21-16 until 3-23-16. The house was very cozy ! I went with my husband and 3 kids ages 9,8 and 4. We didn't use two of the three bedroom. We stayed in the upstairs bedroom and slept on the sofa bed. There was plenty of sleeping spaces. There was only five of us but I'm pretty sure the house can accommodate about 10 people. We used the fireplace the whole time we were there! My husband was so excited to start a fire and the kids sat next to it the whole time. We love the view of the lake ! The kids enjoyed play fishing on the dock. There is nothing bad about this house at all. I would totally stay here again.
