About the property

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 paddle board (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 – King size bed, top level, lake view

Family Suite – King size and double size beds, main level, wooded view

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 paddle board are included with the rental for you to get out on the lake.

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.

We could not have found a better place to stay in the Poconos. The views were amazing, the property was clean and organized. I loved the kitchen. I do wish there were more pots and pans. Overall just a great place to stay. My family and I are already talking about a trip back next summer.

Beautiful Lakefront Vacation Home with Great Sunset Views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week at Jim and Lisa’s lovely lake home (8 adults + 6 kids ages 10 & under). The kitchen is large and we were able to have several adults working in it at the same time. It is well stocked with everything you need. Cabinet space is at a premium but we found using the nearby countertop over the washer & dryer made cereals, snacks, etc. easy to get to. We were able to seat all 14 of us at the large dining table using the 10 dining chairs and the 4 folding chairs. The deck right off the kitchen/dining area was a favorite spot for everyone to enjoy the lake view. Having the steps from the deck down to the waterfront and the fire pit seating was also a huge plus. We didn’t watch a lot of TV but the seating areas both upstairs and downstairs were very comfortable. The kids loved the shuffleboard table downstairs and everyone enjoyed the ping pong table in the garage. Family members thoroughly enjoyed kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding - using crafts (and life vests) provided by the owners! The kids spent a lot of time at the nearby pools, the beach and swings just a short walk away as well as in the lake right at the property’s edge (something that made us nervous when we first saw it but which turned out to be very shallow and we made sure the younger kids always wore their “swimmies”). After watching beautiful sunsets while enjoying the fire pit, some of us would sit out on the dock and just look up at the's an amazing sight. Add a solar eclipse at the beginning of our week and it turned out to be an absolutely perfect vacation.

More info (because these are things we wanted to know): There are lots of stores are only a few miles away. There’s a deli right outside the entrance of the community for quick items or even sandwiches and wraps. Dominic’s Pizza on Rt. 940 was great (no delivery). There are a couple of dollar stores; a Wawa; a Dunkin’ Donuts; a CVS; and a liquor store (wine & hard liquor only). For beer, you need to go to a beer distributor, also not far. There is a food store near the Rt. 115/Rt. 940 intersection but we chose to drive out to ShopRite for our main food shopping trip.

Beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate my parent's 50th Anniversary. Our family had a wonderful time. Our kids loved being on the lake fishing and using the kayaks, canoe, and paddleboard. The yard is absolutely beautiful and we loved sitting outside just relaxing and watching the kids. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. There was plenty of room for all 16 of us!

Avery nice house in a very pretty setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice house. It comes with small boats. It has a fire pit out back on a very spacious lawn.The deck that overlooks the lawn and lake is comfortable and big enough for the whole crowd that stays there. If I need to make a complaint then the sliding door on the lower level is a bit hard to push.

Owner's Response: We have tried to better lubricate the sliding door, and we will see if some more attention is needed.

Great spot for a quiet family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My extended family of 10 recently stayed at this beautiful home. Upon arrival, the house was spotless and after unpacking, we realized how well appointed it was as well. The kitchen was well stocked with nearly everything one would need to prepare a large meal. Paper products were provided. The bathrooms were large, very clean and updated. The dining area/table was perfect for our group of 10. The living room area was a bit small for our large group but we managed fine. There is a large family room in the lower level that was great for the kids. The bedroom downstairs has two large beds that worked well for our three kids to have their own space.

Outside, the deck was a great place to relax and eat with the nice breeze and great views of the lake. The large rear yard was nice as the kids could run around and still be a good distance from the edge of the lake. One of the nicer features was having use of 2 kayaks and a paddle board. We used these daily. There was an easy spot to launch the kayaks into the water and a nice dock to stand on as well. The lake is not overly large, but nice for a reasonable paddle.

One minor issue we had was when we wanted to build a fire in the fire pit down near the lake, the wood provided seemed quite wet and did not want to burn well, even with a starter "log" we purchased.

Some previous reviews mentioned issues with the association and the strict rules in the development. We had no problems at all. The speed limits are reasonable given there are lots of people on bikes, walking or in golf carts. The rules at the association pools are quite strict and they are enforced, but are not unreasonable.

Overall, this was a great house for our group. It is probably one of the nicer houses in the entire development. Nearly everything has been considered and made easy for rental guests. I would highly recommend this house if you want a quiet getaway for a large group with kids, who like kayaking and paddle boarding, swimming, biking, etc.
