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.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at our 2nd time at this property. There was plenty of room and the house gave a warm home feeling as opposed to some other homes we stayed at that were plain. We look forward to renting this property again. Great communication with the owners.

Good clean house

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained, the location is secluded enough to feel private, at least in the winter. The lake is frozen, so we couldn't do any fishing, but the views are great. There are even fishing poles in the garage. We couldn't reach the fire pit, but ended up cooking on the grill, which maintained temperate rather well considering the weather. The firewood is well stocked so we used the fireplace every day as well.

Overall we loved it!

Couple of notes to the owners: the freezer might be having issues. It wasn't able to freeze Texas toast. I adjusted the temperature dial, but that seems to only affect the fridge. Also, you may want to have whoever is taking care of the property, salt the stairs on occasion. There was a half inch slab of ice on each step front and back. I was wearing sneakers on arrival and ended up on my behind:)

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this rental for a short getaway to celebrate our anniversary last weekend. The house is perfect; comfortable and very clean. The view from inside is great. Our first day was rainy, windy and cold, so we enjoyed sitting in front of the fire on the VERY comfortable couch, just reading or watching movies. We spotted deer passing by the yard twice that day.

Our 2nd day was much nicer. Spent a lot of time out on the deck and down by the dock, just enjoying the beautiful scenery. Went out to eat a few miles away, then returned to take the kayak out to catch the sunset on the lake.

Really loved the fire pit and spent several hours enjoying the fire for our last night.

Couldn't ask for a nicer rental and Nick was extremely easy and great to work with. Very fast responses. Wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely try to rent again in the spring.

Thanks, Nick and Jill, for sharing your wonderful property with us. It was just what we needed! I think our pup was even sad to leave!

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
