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 snow fall on lake Shangri la. . In the winter you may not see a soul, yet go a few minutes for anything! Pls read my 40 tenant reviews and Ask for site where you can also charge your stay. PET MAY BE CONSIDERED.

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 . Can also see additional pics and over 40 actual tenant reviews .

This house was everything we were looking for and more. The kitchen is gorgeous and well stocked. The living area is comfortable and inviting. The loft is an added bonus room with a large screen TV. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms, yes that's right there are two were very spacious and the showers were great. I loved having laundry right at our finger tips. We enjoyed everything that this home had to offer. The dining table on the large deck and the fire pit were both used to their full advantage. It was nice to have my whole family with me. ( dog too) WE enjoyed pizza on the deck, smores by the fire pit and even the night chill was welcomed after a long sunny day in the POCONOS. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again. It lives up to the pictures and description. Lake Harmony is a little gem and the restaurants ( Nicks, Shenanigans and the Boulder View Tavern)were great. A must if you are visiting the Poconos. I only wish we had time to use the fireplace inside the house. again, this house is very well maintained and clean. No dog smell. Floors were very clean and bathrooms, bedrooms, living area were all clean and tidy. Maureen the owner is great. Not intrusive and not absent. She doesn't live near the property but her family does and they can help if anything goes wrong or needs attending to. Again RENT RENT RENT this home. You will NOT be disappointed.
