About Joe - Please send an email - I will get back quickly.

I am a New York professional working in the banking industry and living in the suburbs. I built a beautiful home in a community which I love. Unfortunately, I am often too busy to enjoy this little piece of heaven. So, I share it. It is for rent.

Why Joe - Please send an email - I will get back quickly. chose Lackawaxen

We built this house to enjoy family vacations in one of the best kept secrets in the PA vacation region. This house is in new condition and located on an elevated building lot. Views of the surrounding mountains and nearby wooded property are available from the front and back upper decks.

These decks are on the second floor with BBQ and other facilities. Most of all, the deer visit daily. They love Cheerios.

What makes this chalet unique

This community is the best in the region. Renting this house entitles you to pools, beaches, riverfront, horseback riding, outdoor sports, play grounds, gym and restaurants. All included with the price.

During the winter, the community becomes a ski resort. It is the third highest vertical drop in the Poconos. Ski School, ski rental, etc. It is all here. Woodloch Pines and the other communities all send their skiiers to our resort. If you stay local, you will have convenience which is not available elsewhere.

Also, renters in this home receive a 25% discount at the ski resort.

All of the other facilities such as the pool and beach are free. Others like horseback riding have nominal fees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us."

"We spent most of the weekend indoors and enjoyed the large open space."

"Cooking for all of these people was not an issue at all. We loved the experience."

"The beds were comfortable and it is so quiet at night. I got such a wonderful sleep."

"The views from the windows and the wrap around deck are really inspiring. Thank you for making my weekend such a pleasure."

"We will be back!"

(Tip : Joe, add more games in basement and fire place in basements is not working)

Owner's Response: Amisha, Thank you for staying with us! We loved having you as our guest. Yes, the house offers all of the comforts of a modern home but in a country setting. The deer visit daily and the ski slope is just 3 blocks away. The gas fireplace in the living room works well but we have shut off the one downstairs. (Guests often leave their kids alone in the large game room.) We advertise beds for 12 but we actually have a few additional. Three bathrooms makes it easy for several families to share t he house. Please come back...we hope to see you again.

Owner's Response: Ed, Thanks for your review. Short and sweet. Yes, the community offers many amenities such as pools, beaches, boats, horse rides, gym. All are free! Wow! Very well maintained and updated community. Renting this house amounts to a vacation resort more than a house rental. Thanks for staying with us, Ed. Please come back soon!.

Well appointed, sun filled home in super location!

  • 5 of 5

We again selected this home because of its superior location, it's open floor plan and spot-on decor. We love that it is open enough to enjoy each other's company, but we know we can retreat to our rooms for a sense of privacy. We loved sitting by the fireplace after an evening barbecue on the deck. Even the utensils were well organized and easy to find! Once again, a fantastic stay with no worries!

Awesome community and house

  • 5 of 5

This house looks perfect. The carpets, furniture and the rest look almost new. Someone loves this house. Windows! So much sunlight with beautiful views of the nature outside. We also spent time on the deck which also has great views. Plenty of chairs, a picnic table and BBQ all provided by the owner.

The community is not too developed but not camping either. The community is maintained very well. Not a thing out of sorts. The main building is beautiful with some restaurants,etc.

Beach is great. Lifeguards, showers, restaurant, boats (free to use). Shuffleboard and other outdoor activities are available at no cost. Also a petting zoo and horseback riding! (almost no cost)

In addition to a beach, it has pools and a river where you can swim.

We ate in the restaurant. Friendly service. We also ventured outside to the local towns for a couple of meals. Also great.

I highly recommend this house and community. The house is awesome. Includes everything needed for a family vacation.

Fantastic Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a winter weekend getaway that is in walking distance to the tubing and ski slopes, this is it!

We planned for a quiet winter getaway with family and that's exactly what we received. Besides being a very nice guy, Joe was very responsive and available, contacting us via email and phone whenever we had a question or concern.

The house is brand new and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies - glasses, bowls, utensils, some pots/pans, full spice cabinet and a refrigerator with an ice maker. There is also a huge kitchen table with seating for 10+. The large family room was a focal point as we all had plenty of room to sit around the gas fireplace and watch television. Each of the 4 bedrooms was very neat and clean, with comfortable mattresses. The loft area was the perfect space for the kids to sleep - futon bed and plenty of floor space.

The basement had another set of comfortable couches with a game room area, including foosball and a ping pong table. The large TV in the basement was perfect for our Wii video game.

The skiing area is within walking distance or a 30 second car ride. You will receive a 25% discount on all ski and rental tickets as a resident. The lodge was clean and has a very nice restaurant. We all went tubing and it was a blast! The ski resort is sized perfectly for a weekend getaway. There is horseback riding nearby but we did not get a chance to visit.

Every morning and night you will receive a visit from a group of resident deer looking for cheerios and bread - the kids got such a kick out of this, feeding them from the deck.

I would recommend this house to anyone and will definitely return!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a wonderful time. We love this community! Masthope Mountain Community and Ski Big Bear offer great recreation in both the winter and summer. Our family would spend every free day in this vacation resort destination but life's commitments get in the way. So, we do the next best thing...we rent it to others. Your great experience makes us happy. Thank you and please come back. Joe

This house is located in a beautiful private community. The house is new and most of the community facilities are also. During the winter, it is a public ski resort. During the summer, it is a private vacation playground. Pools, beaches, outdoor sports, horseback riding, hiking, a gym, 4 restaurants and other facilities are located in the private community. Nearby are antique shops, small lovely towns and 2 rivers. The more well known is the Delaware. It is beautiful because the federal government strictly controls development.

The Delaware is full of fish and fun. Several companies nearby rent canoes and other watercraft. Fish are abundant and so are other wildlife.

There is a small waterpark nearby and other amusements.

The resort community Woodloch Pines is also nearby so guests may easily visit their facilities.

Other Activities: resort facilities are new and beautiful

Golf: Excellent golf courses nearby. These include Woodloch Pines Resort. Just 10 minutes away from the house.

Ski: Public ski resort. Never crowded. Plenty of lifts. Lines are no more than 5 minutes.

Family friendly ski resort. Excellent ski school. Beginner trails available. Great for kids.

Advanced trails also. Ski shop and rental shop are awesome.

Ski lift is 3 blocks from the house! You can walk or drive.

Restaurants are great as well.
