About Sally L

A native of Chicago and now resident of Central New Jersey, I enjoy spending time in Arrowhead Lake with my children, who love to ski & swim as well as hike in some of the spectacular nearby state parks. It's also a great spot for a girls' or couple's weekend. I own two properties in Arrowhead Lake, and I take great pride in keeping them as clean and comfortable as possible for my guests.

Sally L purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Sally L chose Pocono Lake

This home appealed to me because it had great 'bones,' and because the property is heavily treed and feels very private.

What makes this cottage unique

The home has lots of beautiful Andersen windows and a French door leading to the very private rear deck. The house is set back from the road, making it feel secluded. I added recessed lighting in the kitchen and living room in 2011, wallpapered the kitchen while living here as a refugee from Hurricane Sandy (I reside in NJ), added new carpeting throughout in June 2015, and continue to make improvements as the budget allows!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time, it's a very nice place.

We will be calling in the future to rent it again.

This was a last minute rental due to the storm and the owner was great on making our stay comfortable. The home is as described, clean, and in a safe location. Many amenities and home is in a quiet area - very relaxing. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Leslie, I was so happy to be able to accommodate you during your power outage and the many closed roads during back-to-back nor'easters! The fact that your family was able to relax and feel at home is just a bonus. I hope you can return under less dire circumstances in the future to enjoy the year-round amenities and events in Arrowhead Lake and the surrounding Poconos region. — Sally

we attended a local conference so didn't spend a lot of time there and it rained so we stayed indoors. It was a comfortable spot to rest and regroup!

Owner's Response: Brigitte, Thanks so much for the stellar review. It was great to hear that your family enjoyed the comforts of the Tranquility Cottage. As for your initial difficulties, I stress to all my guests the importance of reviewing the detailed house instructions provided prior to arrival for directions, house entry code, information on how to turn on water, WiFi password and more. But all’s well that ends well, and for your next stay you will know the drill!
