Description of the Lake Harmony vacation condo rental
Why stay in a cramped motel room when for the same price you can stay in a luxurious, half-million dollar, lakefront penthouse? Police Officer, “Great Rates Tom” and retired school teacher, “The Lovely Alice,” provide the Pocono’s best rentals. In the beautiful Pocono mountains, you and your family can enjoy skiing, swimming, hiking, boating, fall foliage, and mountain biking in a tranquil setting at a great price.

The View This bright, beautiful European-design 4-bedroom, 3-bath Penthouse Condo will make Big Boulder Lake part of your living room. Even from the upstairs Jacuzzi, the lake is viewed from the windows that reach up to a cathedral ceiling. Privacy is built in with the angle of the building, which places you nearly “in” the lake.

Unlike many other accommodations in the Pocono’s, this retreat is air-conditioned and has an updated kitchen with dishwasher, trash compactor and washer/dryer combo. There is plenty of room for the family if you care to share this vacation with them. Two bedrooms downstairs each have a full bath. One has two full beds, the other a king. The loft contains a sitting area with TV; two twin beds; and a bonus room with a queen-size bed; as well as a Jacuzzi room and full-bath. The kids can play games while waiting for dinner. Listen to your favorite CD in the living room while conversing with the cook, or watch TV. The gas grill on the deck will keep the mealtimes simple. Step out onto the deck to feel nature and immerse yourself in it. Deer and ducks and chipmunks will entertain you, and sailboats and kayaks will add to your view. Throw a fishing rod into the stocked lake. The heated pool for summertime use is viewable from your deck as well. In season enjoy the hot tub there while watching the picturesque lake and mountains. You will feel as though you have been transplanted. Also in summer, there are 2 beach areas and another pool and with a restaurant within a short walking distance. At this Lake Club, you can rent boats,sit on the beach, or fish.

The View house has Wireless Internet!

The View House

This was our second stay at this beautiful penthouse and each time it gets harder to leave....The view of Lake Harmony is spectacular!!! The View House is very clean, spacious, and quiet making it the perfect retreat... As always, Tom is a generous, easy going man which makes planning our vacation there so much easier, and speaking with his daughter Jackie was just as pleasant. They truly want your stay there to be happy and relaxed, and that's exactly what it was. Looking forward to next October unless we can get there sooner!! Thanks, Kathy

Just as described-Even Better!

We chose this condo after clicking on many other sites, because of the beautiful lake view and the decor style and neatness of the condo. We were all completely impressed with how clean, lovely and that "home away from home" feeling we felt as we settled in. The view could not have been more spectacular from the morning sunrise to the gorgeous colors of dusk. It also provided everything we needed to prepare our meals, including grilling. The hot water was ample for all four showers and the jacuzzi was divine!! Loved the comfort of the beds. But will bring my own pillow next time because I'm more attached to it than I realized:) We already want to book same time next year, and hopefully many more years to come.

Tom Eldred

Owner's reply:

We are so glad that you had a great time! We would love for you to come back, anytime you like! We very much appreciate your kind words & we too love our "The View" Property! Happy to hear that you enjoyed all that the our home & the great resort has to offer! Looking forward to working with you again! Best regards, Jackie & The Great Rates Tom Team

We want to go back!!

Just returned from a long weekend at the View and my family and I can't stop raving about it. This was a family trip with parents and young children. We needed a quick getaway relatively close to where we live. The unit was so spacious, private and clean. TVs and bathrooms in EACH room were such a nice touch, and the house had everything we needed to cook a full dinner – pots, pans, dishes, appliances, grill, etc. Never once heard a neighbor! The loft area was perfect for my sister, her husband and their two young daughters. It was like their own suite up there! The community's amenities were more than we had hoped for - beach area is perfect with chairs provided and the second pool area right on the beach offered my nieces a chance for both beach and pool play! Enjoyed the kayak rental and boat rentals are a nice option for a group. Both the unit and the community were so well maintained. We went to the onsite restaurant and enjoyed a good meal right on the lake with live music. This was our first time doing a personal vacation rental, so I was a little unsure of the process. But Jackie, Tom and Alice were incredibly responsive and helpful. All in all – a perfect family trip that was way too short! Highly recommended!

Owner's reply:

Katie, thank you very much for your kind words and very nice review of our property! We too love to go there & spend time with our family & friends. You really can't ask for more than what is offered in this great resort & the upstairs of the home is like having a private suite.. works well for a small second family or somewhere great for the kids to watch their tv shows and play while the parents can enjoy downstairs catching up, grilling or having a few drinks! Thank you again, Jackie

beautiful place and beautiful location

We enjoyed our stay at the View House tremendously and we hated to go home! We really enjoyed sitting on porch and overlooking the beautiful lake and pool and watching the ducks and chipmunks in the morning while having our coffee! Everything was so quiet and peaceful and private which is what we were looking for on this vacation! We would love to come back in the Fall for a long weekend as I am sure t\it is just beautiful there on the Fall! Thank you for giving us a wonderful , relaxing vacation and hope to come back in the Fall! Sincerely, Ellen, Dan, Kathy, Gene

Just Beautiful..

This is the second year we've stayed at "The View" and we just love it. The location on the lake is the best and it's very quiet and relaxing. We hope to make it back next year or maybe in the fall.

Tom Eldred

Owner's reply:

We are always happy to have repeat customers who know the place ,and can appreciate the effort we try to put into the penthouse so families small and large can enjoy themselves, and the lake and pools etc.

We hope to see you Julia in the fall or next year, and we appreciate your continued loyalty and business.

beautiful location and amenities

Really enjoyed our stay in View 2 on Lake Harmony. Lake view was great, and we enjoyed the heated pool, beach and sailing. Only downer was the sofa bed - probably the most uncomfortable we've ever experienced - the frame was warped and the mattress lumpy. We finally put the mattress on the floor. I also felt having to supply our own linens was inconsistent with the rental fee - linens have been supplied in other rentals we've experienced. Otherwise, it was great!

This is a beautiful condo, the owners were accessible any time The view of the lake is so peaceful and tranquil. My wife and I will definitely return, I have told all of my friends about the wonderful condo. I’m sure they will be in touch for their vacations. We went to the shopping at the outlets in Tannersville ,horseback riding in New Hazen ,and zip lining at camel back mountain. At night we relaxed and enjoyed the condo, it’s so quite, no hustle and bustle. See you again soon.

Tom Eldred

Owner's reply:

We are happy to have renters like Brian and his family, we try to treat our customers like we would like to be treated, and we hope to hear from Brian and his family in the future .

Alexandra Velazquez


Tom and his wife are amazing

I had to bail last minute on going and he offered us a great rate, but i had things to do for the military. He was such a sweetheart and with only a month in advance of canceling the trip he did everything in his power to give me my security deposit. Such honest people. I hope to stay here in months to come before i go away to basic!

Tom Eldred

Owner's reply:

Hi Alexandra,

This is Jackie, Toms daughter. It was a pleasure speaking with you and sorry that you weren't able to make it up to the Poconos prior to going off to basic. We were of course happy to be able to help in anyway possible. We wish you safe travels during your journey and that you are able to go to the beautiful mountains soon! Thanks for your kind words, we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers, thank you for your Service to Our Great Country!

Blissful Week

My husband, son and I spent a week at The View at the end of August. We were impressed with the open feel, cleanliness and welcoming ambiance of this beautiful lakeside condo. The owners have been accessible and helpful throughout the rental process including having a binder with all condo and local information in the living room. The layout of the bedrooms allowed for our teenager to have his own separate area in the loft which has a bedroom, bathroom and sitting. The name 'The View' says it all! My 'me time' was spent sitting on the terrace overlooking the lake reading. The pool next to the building is clean and inviting and the local condo owners were welcoming as well. We recommend this condo to those looking for a serene comfortable stay as well as those looking for the perfect family vacation location.

Judy, we are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time in the Poconos and the lakefront property! We hope to see you again soon,

I stayed in this unit for a 3 day errors and enjoyed every bit of it. Although there was some early morning fog almost every day, it warmed up nicely and was very pristine. The unit was very roomy and accommodating! I will definitely stay there again! Matt

Owner's reply:

Dear Matt,

We're always glad to see people enjoy the property as much as we do. (We'll have to have a talk to the Man up above about that "morning dew" situation! We will look forward to hearing from you again.

This was an excellent getaway for my wife's birthday. The house had plenty of room for myself, wife, and 5 kids. The view from the deck was beautiful and the house is located conveniently to many attractions and the home owener is very accommodating. I would highly recommend the View House as a perfect place for a vacation.

Tom Eldred

Owner's reply:

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your review, Mark. We work hard to keep our place in good condition. We have found this location to be the "best" in the poconos; and we would love to rent to you again in the future.

The view is magnificent and the accommodations are beautiful. Quiet and serene. Best mini-vacation I have every had. Thank you Tom! Can't wait to return soon!

"A great place to stay in the Pocono Mountains!"

Our first visit to the Pocono’s, and as luck would have it we found this amazing place. The House was beautiful and the location/view was great. It's hard to beat our rocky mountains but, this place was close. Tom was the greatest; He accommodated our every need, and was helpful with suggestions of where to eat and making our stay restful and relaxing. If we are ever back in the area our first call will be to Tom to see if this place is available.

Gail Lange

Harrisburg PA

They don't call it "The View" for nothing!

If you want a classy and comfortable home but still in touch with nature and a beautiful view of Lake Harmony, this is your place. And, Tom is great. He was so prompt in getting back to us via email or phone. Everything went so smoothly. We want to go back! Many Thanks!!

Nicest place in the Poconos. Tom and Alice were excellent. My anniversary was perfect. I reccommend this place to any and everyone.

Miriam Horn

perfect 12 year old birthday

Not only was this condo perfect for our daughter's birthday sleepover -- close to snowtubing and the indoor waterpark; lots of beautiful outdoor lakeside space for nightime hide and seek; a great comfortable upstairs for the kids' slumber party far enough away from the master BR that the grownups could actually sleep; a comfy spot for movie watching; and everything in the kitchen we might need. But Tom is also the nicest host ever! he put up birthday decorations, supplied ice cream to go with the cake, and left a funny card for my daughter with a birthday gift. Wonderful!
