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 Poconos

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.

Perfect! Had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had such a great time at your home Sally. The kitchen was fully stocked, plenty of pillows and blankets, and such a comfy clean feeling once we walked in. We loved the firepit that's in the backyard, and loved the fact the trees surrounded us. No complaints at all about your home..You kept in contact with me through email and answered any questions I had quickly. Only thing was the weather, the day we got there rained, the next day was cloudy and the day we had to leave was sunny! We still had fun and enjoyed ourselves But now we know for next time to book in July or August instead of June! Thanks so much Sally for letting us stay at your home. We will look forward to staying again soon maybe in one of your other spacious rentals! Take care

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear the weather didn't cooperate but so glad you enjoyed your time at Arrowhead Lake. FYI, there is a minimum one week stay starting the third week in June until Labor Day and I frequently book July and part of August the prior year, so if you want to come back next summer I suggest you book by January latest. Thanks for the great review and hope to have you back next year... Sally

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was clean and well equipped when we came. The beds were all comfortable, blankets were warm, we loved the little touches like the board games and books. We would definitely come again!
