About Mary and Ed Scharr

My parents bought the home in 1978 for our family and as a rental property. At the time, I was 10 and my brothers were 8 and 5. We all have enjoyed 35 years there becoming good friends with our neighbors and creating many fond memories. My parents had made it their own; my father built the brick 'fire place' which proudly displays the wood-burning stove, and the addition which now houses the large kitchen and owners' quarters (soon to be an additional bath and laundry room!) My mom was always busy painting, decorating, and taking care of the lawn.

As my parents have gotten older, the travel and maintenance of the house became burdensome for them, so my youngest brother and I have inherited the home. My husband and I have updated several aspects of the chalet, yet have kept the original charm.

We take great pride in our home and visit there frequently with our own children, aged 11 and 8.

We live in southern NJ; I am a sixth grade teacher and my husband owns a pressure washer repair for commercial units business.

Why Mary and Ed Scharr chose Poconos

There are many things to do yet plenty of time to RELAX and enjoy the rustic area. Our home is clean, cozy, centrally located within the community, and great for families or adults.

My parents had rented the house to people they knew for many years and MANY have been repeat renters with them stating it was 'a wonderful get away', 'very charming and comfortable', 'great skiing', etc. We hope to have the same experiences with our renters.

Great house! Can't wait to come back next year!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of four. While we stayed the weather was rainy so we couldn't have a campfire but the fireplace in the house did the trick. It was comfy cozy for sure. The owners were great to work with and very responsive. We look forward to coming back up next year!

Quaint, cozy home. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I are from Tampa. We wanted the kids to see snow, go skiing, tubing and have a winter mountain vacation experience. Our stay at the chalet was more than we could have hoped for! The home was warmly decorated. It was very clean and comfortable. The loft and the fireplace were a big hit for the kids. The Arrowhead lake location was conveniently located to the resorts and area attractions but nestled just far enough away to give it that secluded feel. The owners were great to deal with throughout the entire rental process. I would definitely recommend the chalet to my family and friends and are very much looking forward to our next trip!
