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 manage four others as well as a lakefront townhome at Lake Harmony/Big Boulder – and I take great pride in keeping them as clean and comfortable as possible for my guests, as well as my family.

Sally L purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sally L chose Poconos

The house is in a great location. Fell in love with the view, beautiful knotty pine paneling and the vaulted ceilings, not to mention the location 2 blocks from the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Partial lake view, gas fireplace, walk to beach in minutes, full-size appliances and washer/dryer on site, storage shed for swim/ski equipment storage, close to community entrance (very convenient because there are many STOP signs in the community).

All that we could have asked for!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent two nights up in this beautiful cottage by the lake. We were more than satisfied during our stay! The owner is extremely organized, and everything was as described. What I loved most about this cabin was its woody and cozy feel. The living room has sofas, a dining table, a smart TV, and a cozy gas fireplace – which warms the cottage up in no time. Outside, there’s a firepit with chairs around it and a grill with a nice deck. And the best part – an amazing view of the lake which we walked to during our stay.

There is also a big dining room and a kitchen that has everything – literally! (pots, pans, coffee maker, toaster oven, wine/beer opener, baking trays, and all the spices you can imagine). There’s also plenty of plates/mugs/glassware. The owner graciously provides you with paper plates too, for those lazy days :)

We did not use the washer/dryer – but both are present. The beds were comfortable – with memory foam as promised. The owner provides plenty of blankets and pillows – but definitely bring your own sheets. Everything was super clean!

The cottage is in a gated community that not only makes you feel safe (while feeling like you live in the wilderness), but also has 24hr access to a lounge where there are games and other amenities – my friends and I enjoyed playing air hockey and table tennis. Overall, this place was very affordable (and this is coming from someone who’s still paying her student loans). The only downside to this property is the $25 parking fee per car – but try your best to carpool. In the end, the fee was worth it for the beautiful property and nearby amenities. My friends and I also went snow tubing and skiing, which was only a 30 min drive away at Camelback. I have already recommended this place to all my friends and can’t wait to come back in the summer!

Owner's Response: Leena, many thanks for the very detailed and effusive review! Just want to note that I do provide a start-up supply of laundry detergent. Also, sheets and towels can be rented with free delivery & pickup from two local companies. The $25/vehicle fee (which is for registration of renters and issuance of gate entry cards, not parking) is a community charge, and anyone renting a home in Arrowhead Lake must pay it. So glad to hear you enjoyed everything else about the home and the area. Sounds like you packed a lot into a weekend, but there's so much more to do in the Poconos so do try to get back this summer. Just be sure to book ahead as it's the most popular time of the year for visitors. — Sally

The house was great, very nicely decorated, and has everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the serenity cottage. It is beautifully located close to lake and children's park. The property was very quiet which we enjoyed a lot. The house was clean and very comfortable.

Family had a great time in the lake!

  • 3 of 5

Room for everyone, but when we got there it was soooooo hot. Ceiling fans (2 in main common areas) can only do so much and one window unit in one the bedroom(on Eco, Low.......). Arrived late in the evening and needed to cook dinner, dishes had to be washed again by us! The community wrist bans "required" for everything. We never saw another person with one, at the park, beach, the store...... . The one thing we probably need the wristband for, the pools. Once we found out they were at the complete other end of the lake, that is not very convenient Now the convenience of the kayaks location could not have been better. We are a traveling family(tent camping, RV, motel, hotel and resorts) and there appeared to be a lot of restrictions. From the temp to the fire pit to the flood lights to shoes.....oh the check-in process was the best ever!

Owner's Response: I was very surprised to receive a 3-star review of this home as it has never been rated less than 4 stars, and 30 out of the 38 previous reviewers rated it 5 stars. It seems your main complaint was with the community amenities bracelets. These are in fact required for anyone over age 11 for access to all community facilities during the summer season. I have forwarded your review to the lake association to bring this matter to their attention. As for the distance from the pools, the nearest of the community's 3 pools is less than a mile from the house, not across the lake. The nearest beach is just two blocks away. I do own or manage other properties closer to pools and had you expressed your interest in being close to a pool when you reserved I would have been happy to refer you to one. Guest reviews are intended to be focused on the property, not things out of the owner's control. In addition to monitoring of community facilities, I also cannot control community and county regulations about firepits, which must be kept covered with a firescreen and ashes disposed of in a supplied fireproof container. As for the house temperature, I don't have rules about this; I merely request that guests be cognizant of the cost of utilities and help me keep my rental rates down by keeping temperatures at a reasonable level and turning off when not needed. Also, the property listing indicates the availability of A/C in the master bedroom only. I also ask that guests remove shoes so carpets can be kept as clean as possible for my guests and so I can keep cleaning fees in check. As for dirty dishes, I am very sorry that you found some dishes hadn't been properly washed. Unfortunately every dish cannot be checked by the cleaning crew after each rental. I rely mainly on renters to clean up after themselves per my house instructions. However, I appreciate the feedback and have mentioned this oversight to my cleaning people. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, but I do wish you had mentioned your dismay to me during your stay so I could have provided an explanation or tried to make things right. Since your review did indicate your family enjoyed their time at Arrowhead Lake despite the few issues mentioned, I hope you will return to the Serenity Cottage or stay at one of my other properties in the future. — Sally

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for the Easter weekend, and had such a good time.

The cottage was a very warm, cozy , Sally is very detailed in decorating it - it makes you feel like home.

The kitchen has everything you need :)

But the thing I love it's the personal touch the owner gives to it...

Would be happy to come back again :)
