Overview

About the property

Enjoy The Fresh Mountain Air & All The Lake Naomi Amenities - Linens Included!

Picture a storybook chalet in the woods—but one with vaulted ceilings, a two-story stone fireplace, and uninhibited forest views. That’s what you’ll find at Feels Like Heaven, a 5BR, 3BA vacation rental tucked among tall evergreens in Lake Naomi, a five-star Poconos community.

Splash, paddle, hike, and breathe in the great outdoors. Lake Naomi has everything you could ask for—including 7 beaches. Take the short trip to trails or the lake, or watch the birds from your treetop deck. Every moment here really does feel heavenly.

Rough cut oak construction makes the home feel like a Swiss chalet that's been outfitted with modern-day luxuries: perks include a game room, a fully equipped kitchen, and lightning fast Wi-Fi.

A WOODED HIDEAWAY

Put down that smartphone and pick up a s’mores stick!

Escape to the beach and spend days paddling across Lake Naomi, Timber Trails or Deer Trail lake. In the summer & fall, you’ll find two tandem kayaks and a rowboat onsite for your use.

Catch some fresh mountain air on the second-floor deck that looks out over the greenbelt. With room to dine, lounge, and grill, this space is your group's own private treetop haven. Propane heaters keep the deck toasty, even on chilly fall days and cool spring evenings

Pull up a stump at the outdoor fire-pit and keep the conversation going long after the stars come out—you’ll always find a full stack of firewood waiting for you. Or, simply take a brisk walk on a quiet private trail right outside of the chalet. You’ll be surrounded by huge evergreen pines and Rhododendrons that lead to Deer Trail Lake.

A PLACE FOR EVERYONE

We know vacation is about togetherness, so we’ve designed our home with a lot of heart.

Share stories around the two-story stone fireplace in the living room, where floor-to-ceiling windows look out over the trees. Or, pour a drink and make your way to the Great Room, where you can cue up on the pool table, show off your skills on the Xbox (Kinect) or have a movie night on the flat-screen.

Pass evenings in the game room with friendly competitions of shuffleboard, ping pong, foosball, or darts, all while catching the game on the flat-screen TV.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook up a fantastic meal, including all appliances and extras like spices, a waffle maker, and a crock pot—plus plenty of cookware and glassware. With a four-seat bar and an ample granite counter space, you’ll spend as much time laughing and chatting here as you will cooking.

Share your culinary creations in the dining area. With a stone accent wall, wood farm table, and charming rustic chandelier, this welcoming space invites everyone to settle in and spend time together hours after the last dish is cleared.

SLEEP LIKE A DREAM

Each of our five bedrooms feature warm furnishings, LED TVs, a ceiling fan and great windows to catch morning views of the natural scenery.

High quality hospitality linens and towels will be provided during your stay so no need to bring your own.

The Deer and Fox Rooms—both located on the second floor—each sleep 3 with a twin-over-full bunk. This floor is also home to the Squirrel Room, which has a memory foam queen bed.

Hibernate in the Bear Room, a private downstairs escape with a queen bed. Or claim the enchanting third-floor master, where you’ll wake in a cozy queen bed. Open the suite's French doors to a private balcony high in the trees. Both of these bedrooms feature Netflix and Blu-Ray players, ideal for quiet evenings in.

Tiny guests will feel at home here, too—our house is stocked with a portable crib, baby gates and a pack n’ play.

Three full bathrooms—a master en-suite with shower/tub combo, a second-floor bathroom with shower/tub combo, and a main floor bathroom with walk-in shower—make it easy to refresh after a day on the slopes.

ADVENTURE AWAITS

Seven beaches, 3 pools, 23 tennis courts, a 9-hole golf course, archery, kid’s summer camp, trails…we could go on. No matter the time of year, Lake Naomi is full of fishers, boaters, golfers, and adventure-goers having the time of their lives—join them!

You’ll find everything from mountain resorts to water parks (Kalahari and H20ooohh!) to NASCAR racing within a 15 to 20 minute drive. Try your luck at Mount Airy Casino, a 15-minute drive away, or stay in tune with the wild by spending time by the lake.

PERKS INCLUDED

Firewood is always available; we have a full cord of wood that is stacked in the front and the side of the house for your stay.

High quality hospitality linens and towels will be provided during your stay so no need to bring your own.

To enjoy a little outdoor warmth while taking in the fresh mountain air, we provide 2 commercial outdoor propane patio heaters on the deck and a 3 burner propane BBQ.

For those who need to stay connected, or check their e-mail, we have WIFI available throughout the house powered by Eero. You’ll have reliable Wi-Fi in every nook and cranny of the house, including the decks. Should you need to connect to the office, there is a private office area right outside the Bear bedroom with a PC that has a full HD LED 24” monitor with an extra-large desk so you can spread out to do your work.

The laundry room has a shiny red front loader washer and dryer along with a pureWash professional grade Ionic laundry purifier – as a result there is NO NEED FOR LAUNDRY DETERGENT! We also provide laundry pods should you need them.

Our kitchen provides all you’ll need to make your meals. You’ll have dishwashing pods, liquid soap, a starter pack of paper towels & scrubbing sponge, kitchen garbage bags and kitchen towels.

About Steve & Sandy

While living and working in New York City, we started our search for a vacation house that would offer us an escape from the daily hustle & bustle. We knew we wanted someplace that was close enough so that we could get there quickly and yet far enough away so that NYC would feel like the other side of the world.

So in 2012, after a lot of searching, we decided on the community of Lake Naomi. It was an incredibly well established vacation community (over 50 years) located in the heart of the Poconos. Its location in the Poconos and the amazing amenities that Lake Naomi provides made our choice -- a no brainer.

We looked at a lot of houses in Lake Naomi but didn’t seem to find that special something that we were looking for in our city getaway...until we came across Feels Like Heaven.

The house was incredibly unique. The true chalet look that Feels Like Heaven has makes you feel like you’re in the Alps, not the Poconos. The gigantic deck was the perfect place to spend evenings with family and friends, from spring through fall. The two huge stone wood burning fireplaces had the mountain retreat feel we were looking for.. we were hooked.

After enjoying the house ourselves and sharing our mountain retreat with our friends and family, we decided to start renting the house to others so they could share the experience of staying in Feels Like Heaven.

The name Feels Like Heaven may sound cheesy to others, but when the time came to name our house, it was the best way of capturing what this house felt like to us.

Whenever we do any improvements in the house we always ask ourselves “Would that feel like heaven?” When the answer is yes, then we go ahead with the improvement. Nothing that you find in Feels Like Heaven is an afterthought; everything that we put into the house needs to live up to the Feels Like Heaven name. Making our choices based on that question gives us the confidence to say that this is one of the best houses to rent in the Poconos.

Steve & Sandy purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Steve & Sandy chose Pocono Pines

Once you stay at this house you will know why this is the house we chose. First the community, Lake Naomi is the best vacation community in the North East – bar none. No other vacation community offers the amenities with the quality that is found in everything Lake Naomi offers. For that reason we specifically wanted a house in the Lake Naomi community.

And once we saw this house, it’s size, charm and character, not to mention it’s proximity to everything – we knew this was the house we wanted.

As soon as you pull into the driveway you can tell this is not your typical chalet house. The details found in this house are not found in any other house in Lake Naomi, those details give you an incredible feeling as soon as you pull into the driveway, it really feels like you step into a fairy tale.

The longer you stay here the more details you notice in the house and the more you fall in love with the house and Lake Naomi.

I promise you that you will not want to leave once you and your family stay here.:-)

What makes this chalet unique

The combination of the perfect location and a house with ooodles of character.

Truly a unique house, everywhere you look there is character coming out of this house. No other house in Lake Naomi is anything like it.

We felt the location was perfect based on the short walk to deer trail beach, the deck facing the green belt, and being walking distance to both Lake Naomi and the indoor community center this house is centrally located close to everything.

The house itself has a layout that allows your extended family to stay here without feeling like your on top of each other.

When guests stay at Feels Like Heaven they feel at home, we have added many little touches to help our guests feel comfortable. It’s a great blend of being a large house and a fantastic sense of coziness.

Guestbook comments from the owner

10/23/13

This was our first time to this area. I was looking for a gathering spot for our 3 adult children, 2 spouses and 2 grandchildren (5 & 3). The house worked well for 9. Everyone enjoyed having access to the community center. The convenient location allowed the NY & Philly families to get home easily and arrange their work schedules. As a multi-generation family vacation, the house and location worked quite well. We will consider it for another family vacation.

Beautiful home with lots of character.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Everyone in the group loved it and would recommend staying there. The warmth from the fireplaces in the large living rooms offered comfort and relaxation. The pool table and game room were also a hit. The house is nestled in a quiet wooded area. All in all I would recommend this home and would absoutely stay there again.

Fun and Relaxing weekend with Family

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in Steve and Sandy's home - Feels Like Heaven. We love the home! It is clean, well stocked, has two amazing fireplaces, and plenty of games and entertainment factor! We love the Swiss Chalet style to the house. Steve and Sandy were very responsive with any questions we had. The new game room was great and the addition of supplied sheets and towels was also a great convenience factor. We highly recommend this property and will return! Thank you both for a great weekend.

FEELS LIKE HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5

We all walked in and there was so much to soak in. The decor was up to date, clean and yet very cabin like. We really felt at home. The 3 different floors provides enough privacy. We had plans to go out but we really just wanted to enjoy the house as much as possible. 3 days too short.

Wonderful house with lots of character!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights with 6 adults and 6 children. The house had everything we needed, was clean, and quite charming! Our kids played out in the snow, hung out in the bunk rooms, and loved the game room! We all had a very relaxing weekend and would highly recommend this home in a nice community...looks like summers are great here, too!
