About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 bathroom chalet with two large fireplaces and game room(sleeps 12)

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.

Ski, wander, and breathe in the great outdoors at 3 nearby resorts—there’s plenty of opportunity for adventure just minutes from Feels Like Heaven. But you'll also have the chance to relax and make memories in a warm setting that's all your own. Unwind and curl up near the fireplace while sipping a hot cider or watch the winter birds from your heated treetop deck.

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.


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

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 as the snow falls.

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.

Snow bunnies can read a book by the fireplace or take a break from the ski slopes and go shopping at the Crossings Premium Outlets.

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. After a snow fall, it’s the perfect trail to go cross country skiing right out of the front door.


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. Relax and sink in the incredibly comfortable large leather sectionals while staring at the fire.

Or, whip up a batch of hot cocoa 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. All while enjoying the warmth and flickering of the stone wood burning fireplace.

Pass evenings in the heated 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.


Each of our five bedrooms feature warm furnishings, LED TVs and large windows for morning views of the natural scenery.

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.

High quality hospitality lines and towels will be provided during your stay.


Have your pick of slopes to ski or snow tube nearby: Camelback, Jack Frost, and Big Boulder are all within a 20-minute drive. In the evenings, catch a show or try your luck at Mount Airy Casino, a 15-minute drive away. Find splish-splashing fun in the heart of the winter at Kalahari and H20ooohh! indoor waterparks—both within a 15-minute drive.


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.

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.

Here are some of the other items also available during your stay:

Pots & pans in multiple sizes

Toaster oven

Cookie Sheets



Dinnerware Settings and flatware for 14 people

12 Cup Coffee Maker with reusable filter

Coffee Grinder

A Single Cup Keurig Coffee Maker

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


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.

Highly recommend this Home.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a full fun weekend with our children and grandchildren at “Feels Like Heaven”. Beautiful home, plenty of big spaces to be together. Due to the freezing weather we didn’t get to use the decks, or the grill, but the big wall of windows allows you to enjoy trees, snow, birds at any time. Everything is provided, including a full spice rack which was extremely helpful. Can’t wait to stay here again in warm weather to take advantage of the lake. We would highly recommend Steve and Sandy’s Home

Fantastic Place to stay in The Poconos

  • 5 of 5

The owners go to great lengths to ensure everything is just about perfect for your stay. Any/all information you need is laid out for you and everything is labeled in the house which makes everything simple and easy. More vacationing, less worrying about other stuff. The house itself was very clean and everything in it was as advertised. Highly recommended.

Wonderful get away

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great experience for me, my children and grandchildren.

A Taste of Heaven is so fully equiped with any thing you would need to enjoy a wonderful stay. There was plenty to do with out leaving the house, my grandsons had a great time playing pool, shuffle board, pig pong, darts and fuse ball. The kitchen had every thing you would need to cook wonderful meals. All in all it WAS A Taste of Heaven.

A charming Swiss Chalet

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, charming and made it easy to hang out all weekend. The bedrooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. The house had fabulous giant stone fireplaces on the 1st and 2nd floors that we used all weekend. .Oh, and LOVED the pool table -- we played all weekend while watching football on the 60" TV downstairs. We would definitely come back again and strongly recommend this as a great rental especially for a big family group!
