About Anya

We are Laszlo and Anya. We love the outdoors, hence our fondness of Lake Harmony. Also, we enjoy cooking and eating :), adventures and traveling, photography, sports, and in general we lead a very active lifestyle. This home allows us to explore the outdoors while relaxing and cooking delicious meals for our family and friends. Come visit!

Anya purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Anya chose Lake Harmony Estates

Our family has a home in Lake Harmony which we often enjoy. We weren't planning on purchasing our own until we saw this specific home for sale which we've loved ever since we started coming to Lake Harmony in 2010.

It is cozy and lovely in many ways.

Awesome place to relax

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to unwind!!! The home is in great condition. It's not the latest, greatest, newest place - but it makes up for that with plenty of space and tons of character. Our family absolutely loved it. The kitchen is big enough for us to enjoy cooking together (a favorite pastime). The table was big enough to seat 9 adults comfortably. The living room was big enough for all of us to hang out and relax. The first level made movie night a blast. The proximity to Lake Harmony was terrific and there are plenty of restaurants close by - so while we like to cook together, sometimes it's nice to leave that to someone else:). But the best part of this home? The owner. Anya was happy to help with any questions, any concerns and helped us out immediately. If you're thinking about the Poconos, stay here. You'll be happy you did... and you'll be writing your own glowing review.

Perfect retreat in the mountains - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Lake Harmony and at Anya's house. We especially enjoyed the large and well appointed entertainment area downstairs with the pool table and huge TV. We went on a neighborhood walk (super peaceful) and roasted smores over the firepit. The house had everything we needed, and we look forward to coming back! Perfect for families or groups of friends, and make sure to get out and enjoy some of the local amenities in the area that are all easily accessible from this house!

Beautiful, large vacation home

This place was perfect for a large group -- beautiful home, plenty of games and a pool table, great grill and fire pit, and plenty of space for everyone to relax. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful house in a great area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a company retreat. There was plenty of space to just hang around the house, and it seemed very clean and well maintained. There's plenty of things to do in the house. We took advantage of the games in the basement as well as the barbecue on the deck. And the description of the house does not exaggerate the distance to the lake either. It really is a short 5-10 minute walk. The owner, Anya, was a pleasure to communicate with, and there were no issues at all, both during the reservation process and during our stay. We would definitely recommend this house for anyone looking for a nice and convenient place to stay in the Lake Harmony area!

We had a great time @ the Pocono house!!

  • 3 of 5

Our overall stay was very comfortable, and we had a great time, however, there were a few disappointments. I'll start with the good stuff, since it really was a great vacation!!!

We had 10 adults & 2 young children and there was plenty of space for sure, and the location couldn't be better. The area was in close proximity to many great adventures, including Camelback Resort, Split Rock & Hickory Run State Park, which had amazing hiking in the areas of Hawk Falls & Boulder field. It was also close to amazing options for golf, like Mountain Laurel Golf Club, we played this one & it was breathtaking!!!

The things we were not so happy with included the kitchen & the outdoor area, it was very dated & not very well stocked, at least for us, not exactly what I would have picked for a kitchen, when we were cooking for 10 plus every night, but we managed. I would have liked to see more outdoor furnishings, only 1 picnic table & these lame metal folding chairs that were laying around was not very nice, but again, we made due.

I will say this, if you need plenty of space, and you want to be close to many great things to do in the Poconos, this is the place for you!

The owner Anya was always very helpful when we needed something, she was a pleasure to deal with before during & after our stay!!!!

All in all it was a fantastic trip & family gathering for our 2017 Family vacation!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We have an additional 6' folding table and wooden folding chairs for extra seating outside, the metal chairs you mention are a 'last resort' for groups that have 'day guests' for over 14 guests. As of 7/31, the kitchen stove top is being upgraded. Thanks again!
