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 Tobyhanna

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.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a lakefront home to spend a week with our daughters and their husbands. The location of this house was perfect. It was on a beautiful lake that only allows electric motors, eliminating the hum of boat motors and jet skis. It is also located near many state parks providing endless hiking trails. Our one daughter and husband were lucky to see a black bear at the Delaware Water Gap, and unlucky to see a rattlesnake at Promised Land State Park. There were also many deer in the gated community. One several occasions we saw a pair of bald eagles fishing in the lake, and sitting in the trees along the lake shore. Driving in the area around Tobyhanna we also saw deer and wild turkeys.

More about the house. We have stayed in many mountain and lake homes. We have always had ants or bugs or spiders. We had none of that at this house. The house was clean and had everything you would need. They also advertise a gas grill. Again, in most of the places we have stayed, the grill was a disaster. In this case, they have a Weber grill and again, it was very clean, worked very well, and had a full tank of gas with more in the garage. There is a nice deck out back overlooking the lake and a nice grassy area to play yard games. The fire pit is down towards the water and there are plenty of chairs to sit around the fire, as well as all the wood you need to have a fire. The dock is nice, and they have a paddle boat, three kayaks (one with a nice fish finder), and a boat with an electric motor.

The fishing was pretty good. You could drift just about anywhere and catch yellow perch, the biggest of which was about 15-16 inches. We also caught several pickerel during the week. And the best part about the lake was it was never busy or full of boats and kayaks.

We can't say enough about how Nick and Jill take care of their property and want their guests to have a wonderful time. We want to thank them for sharing their house with us and for providing such great accomodations.

Very comfortable stay while we skied locally

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable had all the necessities and extras. Having the teenage boys in their own space on the first floor was great, added privacy. They went to the basement and played table tennis ALOT. House was clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed our little weekend.
