About Thomas and Sandra

My wife and I enjoy boating, camping, paintball, and white water rafting. For me, an occasional skydive hits the spot. After many years of travel to the Poconos, we purchased the home to be in the middle of all the action. Our family enjoys extended stays and an opprtunity to 'get away from it all'. Our kids enjoy the frequent sightings of wildlife, including deer, frogs and woodpeckers.

Thomas and Sandra purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Thomas and Sandra chose Lake Ariel

Easy access to local roads, interstate 84, and area attractions. Only minutes to access the shoreline. Calm 'no wake' waterfront areas abound, perfect for kayaking, fishing or swimming.

What makes this chalet unique

Wonderful sunrises and warm glows through out the morning hours.

Great lakeside getaway from the city

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days at the home during the July4th weekend.

The home was very clean, cozy and welcoming. The grill was very clean and in good working condition. The children enjoyed fishing and roasting smores in the backyard - firepit. The boat launch/marina is a very short walk and the community has private beach access.

The owner was very accomodating, and was always very prompt in responding to our questions. Also, the deposit was refunded promptly after our stay. Overall would highly for a great family getaway and look forward to visiting again.

Thanks again for the great time !!

Clean, quiet, good location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed seeing deer while eating our breakfast. It is very peaceful and serene. The kids were excited and entertained by the games at the property. The layout provided ample room for our blended family. The location was close to the lake and other amenities. Our only wish is that our vacation wouldn't have been so short!

Perfect getaway for us

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults and 5 kids ranging from ages 1-5. Our stay was perfect for the Memorial day weekend! There was plenty of space. The layout of the house allowed each family to have their own area for naptime/alone time. And, I didn't need to bring a pack-n-play or a high chair. The fire pit area outside was a great hangout spot for the adults at night when the kids were asleep. We had lunch and/or dinner outside on the deck. During the day, we took a leisurely walk to the park/pool area. Thomas was thorough, accommodating and flexible. He was a pleasure to speak with and helped in making our stay truly relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for two nights in Feb 2017, I was there with my sister, total 4 Adults and 5 kids . The kids love it since we get there, specially bc there is a nice game room wich the loved. At time to go to bed , the space were enough for everyone. We went to Montage Mountain for snow tubing and the experience it was BEAUTIFUL. Mr Thomas it was always a big help with any questions that I had , before and during the trip. I highly recommend this place if you're thinking in havin a wonderful family vacation.. PS My Daughter still tell me that she really miss that place, and that she wants to come back to that house!!
