Photos and Description of this Locust Lake Village holiday chalet

Cozy, Comfortable And Convenient. 2BR Chalet With Sleeping Loft. Sleeps 8.

Perfect for family vacations, hikers, skiers, hunters, adventure seekers, or for those who just want to get away from it all. Features a new kitchen with granite counter tops, back yard, wraparound deck, wood burning stove, and fire pit with Adirondack chairs. Flat screen TV with cable and free WiFi for your convenience. The entire interior has been painted and updated and includes a new laundry center.

The community of Locust Lake village has much to offer. Take a 4 minute walk to Pines Lake beach, or step outside your back door into state game lands #127. There are four lakes with lifeguards, concession stands, bathrooms and playgrounds are available as well as weekly activities, most of which are free for families. In the winter, enjoy the village's two ski slopes or the sledding hill. Badges are required and available at the main office.

There is so much to do in the Pocono Lake area. A short drive takes you to major ski resorts, championship golf, hiking, and adventure. Kalahari indoor water park is 15 minutes away. Experience the excitement of the Pocono Raceway, the Mt. Airy Casino, or travel to Scranton or Wilkes Barre for sporting and cultural events. The area also features numerous farmers markets and antique shops, as well as outlet shopping.

The Chalet is nestled among maples, oaks, and beeches. A vast state game land borders the backyard. We love our secluded mountain home and we know you will love it too! Browse the photos and request a booking when you're ready.

About Craig and Sue Snyder

Craig and Sue Snyder live in Garnet Valley, PA. We are both music teachers who enjoy the outdoors.

Craig and Sue Snyder purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Craig and Sue Snyder chose Pocono Lake

We always wanted a place in the mountains where we could hike, golf, kayak, and most importantly, just relax. This property is perfect for us and we hope it will be perfect for your vacation. We have renovated the chalet from top to bottom and continue to make improvements.

What makes this chalet unique

This home could not be in a better location in the village. For families, being able to walk to the beach on the largest lake in the development is amazingly convenient. For hunters, you are able to step right off the property into the state game lands. And for skiers, the village boasts two private slopes as well as proximity to the greatest skiing in the Poconos.

But it's the property itself that is the real attraction. The pine paneled ceiling with its recessed lighting and skylights creates that "vacation home" feeling as soon as you walk in. The main room is a wonderful place to gather and play board games. The sleeping loft is great for the kids, while the adults can enjoy the privacy of two downstairs bedrooms. Our kitchen has all the conveniences of home, and you can do your laundry right on the premises.

Outside, we are proud to have one of the few grass backyards in the development, with room to throw the ball or frisbee around. Our fire pit is yours to use (wood not provided) and includes 8 Adirondack chairs. The deck is a great place to relax and eat your meals in the crisp mountain air. Sit outside in the early morning or dusk and catch a glimpse of white tailed deer in the woods, or just enjoy the absence of lawn mowers, street and air traffic, air conditioners, and other noisemakers that invade our lives. When you spend your vacation at our chalet, you will only notice the quiet, the fresh air, and your proximity to nature.

Let me say that if you are organizing next year's family reunion with Uncle Billie Bob and Cousin Emma Mae headed in from West Virgina along with your brother in law, recently divorced, and his twelve kids, then this probably is not the place for you.

However, if you are a couple, with or without a youngsgter or two, who just need some quiet and serene moments in a beautiful sylvan setting, look no further. You are simply not going to find a warmer, cozier spot than this chalet nestled in the heart of the Poconos with stuff to do aplenty right there in the community and all of the great attractions of the Pokies just minutes away, regardless of the season of the year.

The chalet is beautifully maintained and scrupulously clean, right down to games to play and wood to burn. While we were there in the Autumn for a quick getaway, it would be equally delighful at the height of the summer or ski season for a very reasonable price, less than a motel with its exciting four walls and a desk. Highly recommened for all of the above, but please don't try to book the same dates that we are planning for our next visit. H. Lee 9/30/2016

Clean, Tasteful, and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I went here with my boyfriend and his parents for a little vacation and all I can say is thank you so much for taking care of this house and making it nice, clean comfortable, and cozy for vacationers like us. All of the furnishings were updated and the decor was just so cute! This was a super relaxing place! Right around the corner from the Lake and behind the property is state game lands which makes it nice for watching wildlife. The bathroom is a bit small so it would be hard if you had a larger group staying here but it was fine with smaller group like ours.

The pictures don't do this property justice. It's beautiful and the location couldn't be better.

Craig and Sue went above and beyond to make sure my stay went well. Any questions I had were answered immediately and they couldn't have been nicer. The house was cozy and had everything I needed to feel comfortable. I can't wait to go back!

My girlfriend and I spent our very first week long vacation together here. The location was absolutely perfect and the house was well kept and very clean. Sue and Craig were awesome to work with. They even checked up on us during the week to make sure everything was going smoothly. We can't wait to go back!
