Description of the Lake Shangri-la vacation chalet rental

Lakefront on tranquil LAKE SHANGRI-LA, with over 33 five star REVIEWS! tri-level wall of glass,contemporary chalet, set in light wooded setting, for privacy, yet minutes to all the Poconos is known for. This home is the sharpest home and setting in the small, quiet, safe community of Briar Crest woods.Located about 7 minutes to Big Boulder, Lake Harmony, Split Rock lodge complex, with all the amenites of the area, from swimming, boating, fishing, skiing, dining, etc, and all the Poconos is famous for.
This pristine, tranquil 46 acre mountain lake, is a "postcard", as one past tenant stated, The home is set back in a light buffer of woods with a beautiful view, while sitting on the 2nd level oversized wrap deck, and what a place to sip your a.m. coffee! Or have a glass of wine while sitting in the 3rd level loft, or balcony with a good book, while overlooking the lake and nature. In the winter you may not see a soul, yet go a few minutes for anything!
The custom built home features 6 inch walls, the largest Anderson glass available, 4 skylites, 2 -3rd floor balconies, 2 person jacuzzi with skylite over and sliders to balcony in master bdrm, (overlooking woods),3rd level loft and sliders to balcony facing lake, 2nd level oversized wrap deck facing woods and lake, cathedral ceilings,fieldstone floor to ceiling fireplace, and paddle fans all rooms with custom stucco imprinted medalions. A total class act, completely redone in 8/2012, ss appliances in remodled kitchen, new carpet, flooring, bath fixtures,beds, furniture,brushed nickel electric and plumbing fixtures, art work hanging on all walls, designer paints, ( I bought in a stager!) all 1990 old brown trim is now cloud white, and house is full of natural light. Dish tv and ping pong, with washer/dryer in first level rec room. Awesome, OMG, and beautiful were a few of the reactions of past tenants, followed by , "we will be booking again!"

Nascar is 7 minutes away. There is so much to see and do in all the seasons, this is a place you will want to escape to again and will constantly find new interesting places and things to do. Yet many people tell me that its such a beautiful, tranquil setting, they divide their time between the deck and the loft/ balcony, and never leave the house! Its a cut above all the homes you will see, and I dont beat or milk the home with large groups or young kids. Only responsible parties. There is 24/7 roving security in this very safe community.( I had a home a few years ago in another community in the mt. pocono area, but sold it as gangs and drugs came into the area). This home is quiet and the area safe, and a great escape from the rat race! The community is surrounded by state gamelands .

Home is also for sale at 299,900,
