“Amazing house!”

Reviewed 11 Dec 2013

This house was amazing! Not only was beautiful but it was spacious and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook which is extremely convenient. We loved the fact that there were two living areas, both with televisions. We booked the house in December but we fell in love with the wrap around deck so we plan on coming back in the summer so we can actually enjoy hanging out outside. I would definitely recommend renting this house!

Look No Further
If you have found this house you do not need to look any further. Barry has not done it justice in his description - house really has it all. My group of 12 (3 families) could not have been happier with everything about the house and the area. Barry was a pleasure to deal with and returned our damage deposit right away. We cannot wait to come back again and again. KAB

Great house and location
I recently stayed at this house and it was perfect for our group. It was clean, had a great location with woods in the back, and is close to a lot of activities. Barry was very organized with the whole process and great to work with. The hot tub was a great way to relax after a whole day of playing paintball! I will definitely stay here again.

Great house- great vacation
My hubby and I rented this house with our family and invited my hubby' s parents, sis, bro, nieces and nephews..we had 6 adults, 5 young adults (20-24), 3 kids (10-14) and 2 dogs. Never once did we feel crowded. This house was great with lots of room..youngens loved being downstairs with pool table. we enjoyed the porch and hot tub..house was clean and Barry the owner was very attentive to any questions or concerns. Would recommend this home

Clean, comfortable and fun!
Great home - It was everything promised in the description. Barry and his wife are very helpful, responsive and made the rental process seamless. Everyone in my group said it was a great find (and one person said they have a coworker who has stayed at this exact house & loved it). I would definitely come back here and rent with Barry!
Stayed: April 2015

We arrived to a beautiful, clean, and massive residence. It was secluded, but not too far from convenience stores, bars, and a casino. The house was incredible...plenty of room to sleep, a fantastic deck, a grill, and hot tub. I'd recommend this to anyone, and will probably end up renting again.

Owner is very easy to deal with and home is exactly as advertised and very clean. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably, (there was 14 adults and one baby for two nights) great kitchen with everything needed for cooking, complete with a great prep area. The foliage was spectacular; the best I have seen in years. The hot tub is clean and roomy and was a lovely luxury that all the "older folk" enjoyed often. Great value and great house. We will return I'm sure. It would be a great location for skiing in the winter and water sports in summer too.

Great Family Vacation
Barry made the process very easy and worked with us every step of the way every detail was covered either via email or talking on the phone. There was never a no in the conversation he found a way to accommodate us in every way. The house is great for multiple families and has everything you need. Kids can be downstairs while adults are upstairs or everyone can be together. Great house and great getaway with the family. We will definitely rent again with Barry.

B & P Family Vacation
We had a family winter vacation this past weekend and had a fabulous time. We highly recommend this house as it is very clean, pet friendly, spacious and in a great location. We look forward to renting again and appreciate Barry's attention to detail and easy process for rental.

Lovely work retreat!
We had a girls trip this past weekend with about 12 of us total, and had a lovely time. The house had everything we needed, we went snow tubing which was very fun, and it was so nice to cozy up to the fireplace at night. Barry was very attentive and we look forward to coming back to Lake Harmony in the near future!

Excellent Home for a ski Adventure!
My cousins and I had an awesome weekend at this home. The owner was very responsive during the reservation process. There was plenty of space for all 11 of us to eat, sit, watch TV and enjoy the fireplace. The steam shower came in very handy after a day of skiing at Jack Frost. We look forward to another great ski weekend next year at this same location.

Perfect Getaway House
This property was just about perfect in every way! There was plenty of space for our group to sleep, but also room to spread out and relax. The location is great, not too far from shops and restaurants, and you can see the slopes of Big Boulder through the backyard trees. Not close enough to walk to much of anything, but definitely relaxing and refreshing. Great appliances and clean living/recreation space. Would recommend to anyone, and will probably be returning in the future!

I've been to Lake Harmony a few times and this was the best house I've stayed at. Very clean and modern. Barry was very easy to work with. I will definitely try to rent this house for our next trip to Lake Harmony!
Stayed: April 2016

Pictures do not do this beautiful home justice. The moment you walk in, it feels cozy. Barry is very easy to work with and was accessible when needed. All 15 of us are looking forward to the next getaway! Can't wait!

GREAT GETAWAY
First time to Lake Harmony. Went with group of friends and our kids and once we entered the home we knew we had made a good choice, the place was just lovely. Clean, spacious, easy to get to as well. We really were reluctant to leave. Updated and modernized. The owner, Barry, was wonderful, such a pleasure to work with. I certainly would recommend this rental. Thanks Barry.

The Best place to stay In Lake Harmony !
Its my 2nd time going to Lake Harmony and staying at Barry's Place. I liked it so much I had to come again. This time I spent Mother's day weekend there with mom. She loved it as much as I did. I recommend this rental, because Barry is the best host. He is very accommodating throughout the whole rental process and throughout your stay. He always makes himself available. The rental is spacious, Clean, modernized, and beautiful. Barry also is very informative on activities his renters can partake in, although the house is very cozy and fun on its own. There's a pool table, chess table , Three flat screen Tv's, DVD player, cable, and Hot Tub! You cant go wrong with this rental ! I will be renting with Barry again next year for sure :)

Outstanding Experience at Lake Harmony
This is my group's 3rd time at Lake Harmony and it was by far our best experience. The house itself is very beautiful and was perfect for my group of 14 people. The house has privacy but also located well enough where you can go out and explore the surrounding area without a hassle. Barry is extremely helpful and makes himself available to his renters. There was not one negative aspect to the experience and I look forward to renting with Barry in the near future. Would recommend for any large group. Thank you to Barry for his lovely property.

Perfect house !!!
LOVED this house. 11 of us stayed here and it was the best time. Very clean and well kept, perfect location as well, close walk to the beach. We rented kayaks and paddle boards during the day and got to explore the lake. Coming home to the hot tub and large deck was perfect. The owner had quick communication and was very helpful. Would recommend to anyone.

Great Time!
Went up to this house for a golf weekend with a group of guys, and we had an excellent time! The house was beautiful, and we made great use of the pool table and hot tub. Barry was extremely helpful and easy-going, and it was a pleasure to rent from him. I would definitely come back and rent this house again!

Great family vacation!
Our family of 4, plus our dog had such a great Lake Harmony vacation. The house was perfect- it was so spacious, clean, hot tub was great, wrap around deck was perfect and the location was awesome. There is so much to do and see. We saw so many animals around the property, which really enhanced our expierence. Barry is a terrific owner. He is extremely responsive and really cares about your expierence at his home. We will be back for sure!

A great trip!
I had a wonderful mini vacation with my family at Lake Harmony. There is a lot to do in the area for kids, teens and adults. We are a family of 6, with two babies and two teens and everyone had a great time. Barry was an excellent communicator and very personable which made renting from him a pleasure. The house fit our needs and was very spacious and allowed everyone to have his or her own space! The area is beautiful and offers a great variety of activities.

Excellent property! Great Vacation!
Loved this house. It was perfect for the 10 college age kids we brought. Close to rafting, biking and all kinds of other activities. House had everything we needed and was in great condition. Wild life was awesome around the house. Would definitely rent again!

Mother/Daughter Weekend
We had a group of 11 mothers/daughters and stayed at this great house! This is the second home that I rented from Barry and it did not disappoint. The house had everything in it to meet our needs. We had not been up the mountains during the summer months, so this was a little different for us. It was truly enjoyable to be able to use the outside amenities during warm climate. Even the hot tub was nice at night. Barry is a wonderful owner to work with. He gets back to you immediately and tries to accommodate all of your wishes if possible.
I highly recommend this rental for families with children of all ages and/or big groups.

Great vacation in Lake Harmony
3 couples with MANY young children found the perfect house to fit all of our needs. It contained all of the necessary essentials and the layout/space was absolutely perfect for all. Barry has been extremely accommodating and responsive and in general a true pleasure to deal with. Would definitely rent this property again in the future!

Perfect!
I've rented many houses in the Poconos area and I must say this has been by far the best house I've ever rented. The description of the house is perfect, no details were left out. Everything in the house is updated and nicely placed. We had a decent size group. There were 8 people total 7 adults and one small child and the bedding space fit everyone comfortably. Our group loved the house so much and felt like it had everything we needed for a bonding weekend that we never left the house.

Not only is the house great the owners were wonderful to work with. They were very understand and accommodating to all our needs. The couple responded to all of our inquiries really quickly. From a customer service aspect, it was a pleasure to work with them.

I highly recommend this rental, you will not be disappointed.

The best service you could ask for!
5 of 5
I held a workshop for my church youth group of about 15 people. We honestly could not ask for a better host. He was more than helpful regarding all my questions about the house. Every email I sent him was replied within the hour. When we arrived, my group was extremely pleased with the beauty and cleanliness of the house. It was exactly the way it was described and had everything we needed and more. The host was very thorough with the details of the property and very clear with the check-in/out instructions. He was also aware that my group was planning on going to Jack Frost/Big Boulder to snowboard/ski. There were several times when he would send me emails with deals he would come across online, which I found extremely generous. I HIGHLY recommend this house and if the house is not what you’re looking for, try to find another by this host. He will not disappoint. Truly the best service you could ask for!

Recently stayed at this house with some family and friends. There were 8 adults and 5 kids. Everyone slept comfortably and there was room for others if needed. Barry was a great host and great communicator. We've come to Lake Harmony a few times and this was definitely the best house. Would highly recommend for winter and/or summer visits!

A great time with friends
This cabin was perfect for our long weekend with friends for tubing & making memories. We were part of 4 families that came for the weekend - the house is big enough that we never felt like we were on top of each other. The hot tub was a great place to relax & unwind. Barry was readily available via text if we had any questions.

Great home! Great location!
Our group had an amazing time. Spacious, clean, well maintained home.

Simply a perfect long weekend. Everything was in perfect order including the hot tub, wifi, pool table, fireplace, flat screen smart TV and everything else that is listed in the features. The kitchen was well furnished with appliances, pots, pans and dishware. There was 17 of us and we all had a great time with no complaints. Barry and Kari are wonderful owners and very helpful. Looking forward to renting this place again in the near future. The location is great as well with many activities to do. VERY spacious.
If your looking for a place to have fun with your friends and family this is the place to be !!

Second year in a row staying at this house. Once again the owner Barry and the house did not disappoint. Open communication the whole time and the house once again was great. Hope to be back next year again.

Easily fit 3 families with elementary age kids and having 3 full bathrooms was nice. The kids enjoyed the pool table and large tv's. The house backs to open space and you can see Big Boulder looking out the back windows.
