About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 1/2 Baths, sleeps up to 6

Our quiet two story chalet, on two secluded acres, is centrally located to numerous Pocono attractions and is available for all four seasons of the year. Relax at our chalet on the huge deck, or upper balcony, overlooking Pine Run Creek. Take a walk on the private paths through the rhododendrons to your own picnic area or on a meandering trail on the property crossing three bridges over two streams leading into a untouched forest, where wildlife is often seen. Roast marshmallows at our fire pit, or grill some of your favorite foods on our gas grill.

Our Chalet will accommodate up to 6 people. One upstairs bedroom has one queen bed and one twin bed while the other has one full size bed with a half bath. A long hallway closet runs between both bedrooms. The lower level bedroom has a full size bed with closet. The downstairs offers a full bathroom and an open concept kitchen, dining area and family room that lead out to a large deck overlooking the stream. A 42' Flat Screen TV, DVD/Blue Ray Player and WIFI make this the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the secluded beautiful surroundings.

Visit Beltzville Lake State Park, only one mile down the road with its sand beach, wooded picnic areas, boat launch and miles of marked hiking trails. Enjoy fishing, hunting, water skiing, and cross country snow skiing. If you have a boat, bring it along, we have plenty of parking at our home.

Nearby attractions also include Penn's Peak, Historic Jim Thorpe, Lehigh Gorge, Pocono International Raceway, Blue Mountain Ski Resort, Pocono Whitewater Rafting, Skirmish, Pocono Biking and many more.

About Glenn and Crystal

We have grown up & lived in this area all are lives. We enjoy the area's natural beauty, wildlife, scenic views, events and freindly people.

Glenn and Crystal purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Glenn and Crystal chose Beltzville Lake

This property was in our family for over 30 years and gives you a sense of tranquility by being surrounded by trees, wildlife, natural streams and all the things that Mother Nature can offer for this area.

What makes this chalet unique

The open concept of the home and double sliding glass doors in the living room make you feel like you are outdoors your entire stay. The view and the sound of the stream running through the property is especially soothing to the soul.

Fantasy forest retreat

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect.. it was me and my boyfriend staying here super cozy and the amount of space was just right.. you could absolutely fit more people for sure, we ended up not really using the top floor but it was nice to have being there, which defiantly added to the vibe of the place.. the deck is fun, got lots of use out of the BBQ.. games in the front were a sweet touch. We absolutely spent hours playing.. the backyard though is what really got us. The trails ended up being so amazing and it was so fun to get lost in them. Everything is only 5 minutes away. Really great location.

Best rental I've ever had - honestly

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the house perfectly cozy and incredibly clean, the property immaculately manicured, and the fire pit by the river absolutely enchanting; but Glenn and Crystal go above and beyond to make sure your stay is as comfortable and worry free as possible. The house is fully stocked to keep you from feeling like you have to lug all your own supplies for a weekend getaway. When I met Glenn for the walkthrough I mentioned my friends and I were doing a Spartan Race at a nearby Sky Resort, the morning that we were checking out he stopped by to pass along a local newspaper article about the race that we might be interested. They pay attentions and earnestly hope that whoever stays at their cottage has a fantastic time, and we did.

Cozy Chalet in a Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for a peaceful weekend getaway. The house was comfortable and clean. I absolutely loved sitting on the porch in the morning with my coffee. We went for walks on the backyard trails and the land is beautiful. We had a wonderful time, and we are very thankful for Glenn and Crystal's hospitality. Thank you!

Why stay at a Hotel when you can just stay here?

  • 5 of 5

We saved a good amount of money and had 10x more fun by cancelling our 3 Hotel rooms and booking this great house last minute for a two night Blue Mountain snowboarding trip. The owner, Glenn, was very accommodating to our late arrival time. The house was great, can't say one bad thing. Kitchen was well stocked with all supplies needed for cooking. I realized I forgot paper towels but Glenn had them there. Shower had good hot water pressure. Firewood was already stocked by the fire pit which was great, I thought we were going to be without fire since no one in my party brought any. The creek is flowing right there next to you as you sit by the fire, and makes it easy to get water to put it out. The private nature walk through the woods was beautiful, even in the middle of winter. I would love to see it in the summer. 20 minutes to Blue mountain. We were even able to easily get an Uber when needed which we did not expect.
