Photos and Description of this Pocono Lake holiday house

Beautiful 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom Lakefront property, with 200 feet of shoreline

Retreat to the natural beauty of the Poconos Mountains with this lakefront property.  Located in the desirable Arrowhead Lake Community, this 2-level vacation rental offers a private retreat with all the amenities.  With 200 feet of lakeside property, guests can take in the stunning views or venture out on  Arrowhead Lake on a kayak,  canoe, or paddleboard (all included with rental).

Breathe in the fresh air of the mountains at this Poconos rental. Located on a large lot in the Arrowhead Lake Community, this 2-level lakefront property offers a quiet retreat with tons of amenities.

Enjoy stunning lake views from almost every room in the house. We encourage you to open the windows to let in that fresh mountain air. You’ll catch the scents of the water and the various trees around the property, encouraging you to linger and enjoy a slower pace during your stay. In the evening, relax near the wood fireplace or outdoor fire pit, and reminisce about your day.

With fresh renovations in the kitchen and bathrooms, you’ll be pampered with the best! The full kitchen boasts granite counter-tops and new cabinets, plus a 70-inch picture window with tremendous views of the lake you just won’t be able to get enough of. Imagine lingering over breakfast here with your family as you watch the sunrise together. Perfect!

Plus, all of the bathrooms are new or have been completely redone. The master bathroom has a double shower with a built-in seat. Each bathroom on the upper level has heated floor tiles to keep your feet nice and warm. In fact, all tiled and hardwood floors have radiant heat.

This vacation home is perfect for any family or group. Up to 14 people can sleep here. Each bedroom has been decorated in its own style, and all of the beds feature Memory Foam mattresses (even the sleeper sofa), so you’ll all get a great night’s sleep!

Private Master Suite – top level, lake view

Second King Bedroom – main level, wooded view, plus a double bed

Queen Bedroom – top level, lake view

Queen Bedroom – top level, wooded view

Double Bedroom – top level, wooded view

Queen Sleeper Sofa – lower level, lake view

Visit the lower level to discover a multitude of entertainment options for those afternoons or nights you choose to relax indoors: ping pong, movies, TV, and more. But don’t feel like you’ll be closed off here; you still have great views, plus an entry door right off the lake.

Enjoy the Outdoors

With this lakefront property, it will be hard to stay inside, though. With a large, double lot property, there’s a great grassy yard for you to play on. Outside, you can see across the entire lake. You can find shade and sun on the property. Every evening brings a stunning and unique sunset. Two kayaks, a canoe, and a paddleboard are included with the rental for you to get out on the lake. Plus, a pontoon boat is available for you to rent during your visit in the summer months.

Did you know that the best fishing on the lake in all seasons is right out back off your private dock? Bring your fishing gear and get ready to catch some big ones to brag about when you get back home. And when the lake is frozen sufficiently, you can go ice skating.

The deck out back offers you the perfect place to sit and stare at the stars, or even the fireworks from the Island Pool. You’ll be able to see some wildlife from here, including hummingbirds that visit our deck-mounted feeder. Sip on an iced tea during the afternoon, play board games with the gang, or get lost in a good book. The possibilities are endless!

In the evenings, you can relax and sit by the fire pit and roast some delicious marshmallows for a sweet and gooey end-of-the-day treat.

Explore the Community

Arrowhead is a private community with 3 heated swimming pools and 4 separate beaches. It also boasts a ton of other amenities, including tennis courts, volleyball, bocce ball, and a new lodge with a fitness center, billiard room, banquet room, and library. The lodge is also Wi-Fi accessible, so feel free to bring your laptop or mobile device with you.

Guests can picnic throughout the Arrowhead Lake Community. Tables and grills are provided; just bring the charcoal! Plus, there are some great wildlife to discover: whitetail deer, turkeys, chipmunks, bear, turtles, foxes, owls, woodpeckers, and more.

It’s a 1-minute walk from the vacation rental to get to the closest beach and playground. Visit two beaches or the lodge with a short trip on the kayak or canoe.

About Lisa and Jim McKnight

This is our dream vacation home, which we purchased in late August.

Lisa and Jim McKnight purchased this house in 2015

Why Lisa and Jim McKnight chose Poconos

Located 2 hours or less from Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York for those of you who want to head into the city. There are a ton of adventures waiting for you at this lakefront rental.  This popular community is the perfect four-season destination.

What makes this house unique

This Poconos rental is situated on a large double lot, with a large back yard and multiple seating areas on the extra-large lakefront and gravel beach. This getaway provides a quiet backdrop for your vacation with plenty to do… or nothing at all, relaxing on the extra-large hammock.

Great house, beautiful lake, perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth year my friends and I go to Poconos for a getaway weekend. We stayed at three different houses in the prior years, they all had hit and misses. But this year we all loved Lisa and Jim's house, not a single complain. The house is beautifully furnished inside and out. Cleanness is five out of five. All the necessities and more (even band-aids) are provided. We really enjoyed our stay and will go back for the next getaway.

Perfect! Beautiful home and wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying at the McNight's home. The house was able to accommodate both of our families quite comfortably.

There was more than enough room, plus plenty of bathrooms to avoid "shower lines". The kitchen was fully stocked and we were able to cook up big family meals and make memories around the dining room family that sat 12!

Having morning coffee on either deck was just what the doctored ordered. Our teenagers loved having use of the kayaks, canoe and the paddle board. They also spent hours competing on the ping pong table while the adults caught up.

This was our 5th time renting in the Poconos and we can't say enough wonderful things about the experience! Both the home and the McNights are just AWESOME!!!

Probably the most perfect family reunion house on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

First, it is so clear that the owners have put a lot of thought into making this the perfect house for a family reunion! The children spent almost all their time on the dock and paddle board or swimming and fishing in the lake. Everyone agrees that the beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. We loved all the different areas we could eat and hang out. The ping pong table and hammock were also a huge hit! Oh, and the house was so clean when we arrived and we LOVE that we're not expected to thoroughly clean the house before checking out (which is why we are actually checked out early!). The house was so spacious, that our family of 20 could comfortably fit and we never felt on top of each other. It really is the best house on the lake. Thank you so much for being such caring and thoughtful owners!

Great house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about this house. It is a beautiful home with plenty of space, a great view, and a lot of enjoyable amenities. The pictures truly do not do it justice. We easily fit 4 small families here. The kids and adults all enjoyed taking rides in the kayaks, canoe, and paddle boat that the house provides with the necessary life vests. Sitting out on the huge back deck or in the yard just looking out over the lake was one of our favorite pastimes. We also enjoyed being so close to the beach- only 2 houses away! And everyone enjoyed taking turns in the hammock out back. We would love to rent th is house again and would highly recommend it to anyone. It is well worth it.
