About Mary and Ed Scharr

My parents bought the home in 1978 for our family and as a rental property. At the time, I was 10 and my brothers were 8 and 5. We all have enjoyed 35 years there becoming good friends with our neighbors and creating many fond memories. My parents had made it their own; my father built the brick 'fire place' which proudly displays the wood-burning stove, and the addition which now houses the large kitchen and owners' quarters (soon to be an additional bath and laundry room!) My mom was always busy painting, decorating, and taking care of the lawn.

As my parents have gotten older, the travel and maintenance of the house became burdensome for them, so I have inherited the home. My husband and I have updated several aspects of the chalet, yet have kept the original charm.

We take great pride in our home and visit there frequently with our own children, aged 14 and 11.

We live in southern NJ; I am a sixth grade teacher and my husband owns a pressure washer repair for commercial units business.

Why Mary and Ed Scharr chose Pocono Lake

There are many things to do yet plenty of time to RELAX and enjoy the rustic area. Our home is clean, cozy, centrally located within the community, and great for families or adults.

My parents had rented the house to people they knew for many years and MANY have been repeat renters with them stating it was 'a wonderful get away', 'very charming and comfortable', 'great skiing', etc. We hope to have the same experiences with our renters.

Quiet and cozy. Perfect for a birthday weekend.

  • 4 of 5

6 adults rented for birthday weekend ski get away. Perfect location and atmosphere. Plenty of sleeping area and the fully stock kitchen was helpful for meals. Unfortunately no coffee for the pot and filters. Brought everything but the coffee. Fireplace looked great but cold wind blew the fire out and pushed all the smoke into the house. Over all fantastic get away.

Awesome! clean home and friendly owners😊

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Our questions where always answered in a timely fashion. The home was clean and the owners were wonderful to deal with! The community offered many things for families to do. We had a great time reconnecting with our children. Fishing, renting boats and kayaks. Or even just hanging at the game room playing pool. On rainy days we spent watching movies, playing board games, and cards that the home provided. 😊? We even sat at the pool on a rainy drizzly day, under an umbrella while kids swam..making the best of a situation.

We had a great time at the scharr chalet. There was plenty of room to sleep, the kitchen was well stocked with pots, plates, etc. A beach and playground we're a block away, with two other pools within walking distance, too.

Very cozy & comfy! 15-20 to JF, a little more to BB and a little over a half hour to Camelback

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this little chalet. We were 4 adults and 4 children, perfect fit for us! The drive to the Jack Frost is not bad. Enough parking. Well stocked kitchen, we couldn't find a blender but otherwise had everything we needed.

Directions and info given by the owner was spot on.

Overall, great place! We had an excellent time and would rent again as well as recommend!

Thank you!
