About Nick and Jill Frezza

Jill and I live in New Jersey, have 2 kids and have been married for 24 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 2012

Why Nick and Jill Frezza chose Poconos

This is our second house on this lake(check out HomeAway #202448). When this house came up for sale I knew we had to have it. It was foreclosed and empty for 2 years. But had a lot of potential. Almost every part of this house is new... furnace, hot water heater, stove, refrigerator, paint, carpet, roof, etc

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.

Property was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first lake house rental so the description and amenities really helped us decide to stay here. The property was clean and well-maintained. Customer service was great. Our family had a wonderful, relaxing time. We enjoyed everything about the property, including the kayaks, and rowboat, the ping pong and air hockey. There was plenty to do for everyone including our grandson who especially like the electronics. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and family and look forward to returning again.

We absolutely loved staying at Nick and Jill's lake house. It's everything we were looking for: a house on the lake to do some fishing, with use of boats, kayaks and peddle boat. All my husband has been asking for was to rent a house on a lake and go out the back door and do some fishing, well he got his wish and we loved every minute of it.....he caught over a dozen of fish, mostly small and large mouth bass and a pike. The sunsets are stunning on the lake, like they were made just for us. The house itself is beautiful and very clean. There is a community pool, just a short walk at the end of the street. We had such a great vacation with family and friends. Thanks Jill and Nick, I think we'll be back sometime soon! :)

We love it!

  • 5 of 5

There were deer roaming around the house that kept us busy for the rest of the first day. Nick was quick at responding to all my questions and needs, like my last minute booking. The house is clean and has all that we needed and more. We spent times kayaking and row / pedal boating in the calm lake.

The lake has been very therapeutic for me, personally. I enjoyed kayaking into the middle of the lake and just hang out there. I can provide a long list of all the fun we had, but it could be exhausting for the mind. So, in brief, it’s a lakefront house that I love to come back in the future.

My family had a wonderful time.

Thank you Nick!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for posting such a wonderful in depth review. At the risk of sounding corny, I totally know what you mean about the therapeutic effect of the lake. It is very calm. No noisy jet skis or power boats. We rarely leave the property when we go up. We would love to have you back and we are so pleased that you enjoyed it! Nick and Jill

A great house and getaway

  • 5 of 5

The time we spent at the lakehouse was amazing. The accommodations were great. Nick was very attentive and responded right away. You could not ask for a better house, location and people. We will definitely look into staying here again.

Relaxing and Peaceful Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as depicted in the photos. Lovely spacious home with hammock and a fire pit with breathtaking views of the lake. We had the added bonus of visiting during the peak season of the leaves changing colors. We took a daily walk at Tobyhanna State Park, visited the casino, and even began our Christmas shopping at the outlets nearby.

Unfortunately our car broke down during our stay but Nick was super responsive and offered to look up local auto repair shops through his Angie's List membership. The homeowners are super responsive and attentive.

You had me at Baking Powder!

  • 5 of 5

As I said, when I panicked and needed an ingredient to complete a dish- it was there!!!! thank you for many thoughtful provisions of necessity to fun. Experienced 3-D glasses , Bambi deer passing by, and ducks that somehow knew when we were there. Plenty of local sights to see but mostly enjoyed the lake and the huge bass that got away !
