completely renovated this lakefront home last summer! Because we spent so much redoing this house, we do not want young groups. Our preference is for families or mature couples. The summer of 2018 we will rent a 3 night weekend(Fri, Sat & Sun) 4 midweek nights Mon, Tues, Wed & Thurs) or full weeks (Friday to Friday)rentals. The house sleeps a maximum of 8 adults or a family of up to 8 adults and 4 pre-teen children (We do not rent to 10 or 12 adults, however.). We have all new furniture and not cheesy stuff, either! There are 2 large flat screen TVs, 1 in upstairs family room and another one in the downstairs rec room. Both rooms have sectional sofas that are usable for sleep areas facing the TVs. The shuffleboard is in a large ground floor room with a bonus second refrigerator (great for storing all those sodas or beers without hogging valuable "main" refrigerator space. Upstairs, the kitchen is brand new and we have plenty of storage space in the kitchen. We stay at our places with our own families and we do not like living out of bags all around the place! We have done this (renting vacation homes in Poconos) for almost 20 years now. We know that you need storage areas (including 2 refrigerators), air conditioning (this house has Central Air!) , free WIFI, easy access bedrooms and baths for Grandmom/ Grandpop. There is a full size washer and dryer in the master bathroom. Stop bringing your dirty laundry home!
We have a new 6 person hot tub, too! Great for winter weekends. It is on the back patio facing the lake so you can enjoy the view while relaxing after a day on the slopes!
In every season, except summer, we rent for just weekends (you can stay 2 or 3 nights), midweeks, or full weeks or longer. Weekends run Friday at 4pm until Sun or Mon at 11am. If you can stay a full week, it will be cheaper overall.

Just email us and we will verify the total rental cost and give you directions on how to proceed with the lease (we email to you) and payments.
There is also a $400 damage deposit and a $100 cleaning fee.
Because we have refinished the wood floors and are avoiding any damage from scratches, this is our only house that is not pet-friendly. Please check our other homes if you are planning on bringing a pet
In the summer, we rent by full weeks---Friday to Friday, and the rent is $1550 a week (the rate will show larger and I will change before you pay). We will also rent a 3 night weekend(Fri to Mon) and or 4 night midweek(Mon to Fri). Plan ahead for summer rentals--2018 is already filling in!
Lakefront houses are hard to come by--we have several, so if your dates are filled, find the link for "All my Rental Properties" if you want to see our other homes.
We sometimes have a tiny trickle of water that runs across the yard, so we put a cute little bridge over it! Great place for picture taking! Another cool feature we have is a spiral staircase to the 3rd floor loft! Ground floor has the master bedroom (king bed) and bathroom, shuffleboard room with refrigerator and bar stool area, family room with a sectional sofa and flat screen tv, and the back door to back yard area.
The shuffleboard is 9 feet long, easy to learn and play, and will keep your kids entertained for hours! We also supply DVD players for each TV and about 30 DVDs---all genres, including kids shows--but feel free to bring any you want! And if that isn't enough to do--you are lakefront, and we supply 2 boats--a pedal boat and a flat bottomed boat for fishing. And the fishing is great--but yes, you do need a fishing license in PA (although not for under 16--check the state website first to be safe!) The lake has lots of sunnies and large mouth bass, and even a first timer should be able to catch one! In addition to the 2 boats, we also have a large dock if you just want to hang out onshore--and we have chairs and tables by the lake so you can really relax.
Back to the house---2nd floor has 2 bedrooms (both have queen beds), a full bathroom, the kitchen, dining area, and living room with another sectional type sofa (can be used for kids to sleep) and another flat screen TV there. There are sliding glass doors from the living room/ dining area onto the deck, and the deck has furniture for sitting/eating outside if you want.
Outside the 2nd floor bathroom is a spiral staircase that leads to the enclosed loft, which has 2 double beds. Kids love this area (which is why we enclosed it--safety first! The only way down is down the stairs--no open overlooking areas!
