About Anya

We are Laszlo and Anya. We love the outdoors, hence our fondness of Lake Harmony. Also, we enjoy cooking and eating :), adventures and traveling, photography, sports, and in general we lead a very active lifestyle. This home allows us to explore the outdoors while relaxing and cooking delicious meals for our family and friends. Come visit!

Anya purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Anya chose Lake Harmony

Our family has a home in Lake Harmony which we often enjoy. We weren't planning on purchasing our own until we saw this specific home for sale which we've loved ever since we started coming to Lake Harmony in 2010.

It is cozy and lovely in many ways.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start!! Anya is a beautiful person, very easy to deal with. She responds to your emails or texts in minutes. Every time i texted her or called her i felt like i was talking to my best friend. Great lady, very friendly great personality!! The house!! Sooo beautiful, very cozy , super cute. The second We walked in felt like home. It's like grandmas house :comfortable and homey . Loved every detail of it. Juliet balcony that is coming out of the bedroom and looks down the living room was my favorite. I felt like princess in the castle waiting for her prince. Lol

The house has everything that you might need .

Great deck, beautiful fireplace, fire pit outside. I loved the old wood stove in the basement. I can talk about this house forever. I would highly recommend it to everyone . Its also in a very nice small town. Walking distance to everything. The lake, bolder field (thanks Anya for telling me about it) very nice restaurants . We ate almost in every one of them and there was not one thing that we tasted wasn't delicious.

We will definitely go there again on out next vacation. Hopefully it will be a longer one:)Thanks Anya for this amazing experience, we really appreciate everything you've done for us.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Pocono house was very enjoyable. It was a short drive away from Nick's lakehouse--which had very delicious burgers and outdoor seating with a beautiful view of Lake Harmony--and other locations for our daily needs. The house itself was stunning with a beautiful decor; all of the amenities provided made our stay very comfortable. Anya was always accessible when we had any questions or concerns. In addition to the fun had at Nick's Lakehouse, the private beach was a great place for tanning. Horseback riding was another activity we explored, and the crew at the ranch provided great customer service and an overall good experience.

Coming from New York City, this retreat serves as a wonderful getaway for those wanting a break from the urban jungle. Overall, it was a new and exciting experience for all of us, and it goes without saying that I'd highly recommend this retreat to anyone looking to enjoy nature for a weekend.

Great time in a lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house. Together with a large group of friends, I visit Lake Harmony every summer, and this was my favorite rental so far. It was the perfect size for a large group of friends. Plenty of space to spend quality time together and also get some me-time when anyone needed it. The house was stocked with everything we needed to cook our own meals, and we loved the big TV and pool table in the basement. We also really enjoyed spending time on the porch, plus the beach at Lake Harmony is beautiful. It was great to be so close to the lake this year.

The only minor issue we had was with the air conditioning. We didn't realize the place didn't have central air going in, and it took a while to cool down some of the bedrooms on the upper floors. Otherwise, we loved this place and will probably rent again in the future. Anya is so nice and responsive, and we appreciated her giving us an early check-in and late check-out!

Beautiful, fun getaway in the Poconos

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great getaway in the Poconos! Right around the corner from Lake Harmony, and not far from lots of fun adventures -- hiking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, etc. We had a great time exploring the area and doing stuff outdoors, but we're happy to hang out at the house as well. It easily fit 11 adults, and catered to all of our needs. We grilled, ate on the beautiful deck, relaxed in the spacious living room, and entertained ourselves with pool and music in the furnished basement.

Anya is a superstar host! She answered promptly with all of our questions, and was extremely friendly and patient. A+ owner who I would absolutely go to for our next trip!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this Lake Harmony residency. There are so many pleasures to share that this evaluation will most likely not due

the home justice. We were a family of 11, 5 of which were children ages 4 to 12 years. The home is well maintained with clean, up to date

kitchen equipment, out door large grill and picnic table, 4 bedrooms and a top floor containing 5 single beds for children. The basement was so much

fun with a pool table, a bumper pool table, comfortable couches and a large screen TV (which we never used as we preferred the games and reading).

Also in the basement is a large size washer and drier as well as a toilet and sink.

The main living area has leather full size couch, love seat and large comfy chair in front of a gas huge fireplace. We did not use the fireplace as it is summer, but the directions are provided. The dining area has a large table that accommodated all 11 of us to enjoy an evening meal together. There are lots of extra chairs if one has visitors too. The bathrooms were great especially with constant hot water. Every bathroom has a large bottle of hand soap provided by the owner which helps reduce soap residue and reminds us all to frequently wash our hands.

The home is an "A" frame design with an outside porch on two sides - beautiful! The home is nestled in a wooded area a short walk to the tennis courts and

to the sandy swimming beach. We enjoyed both of these locations. In addition we walked to a nearby hotel to rent kayaks and a paddle board. Our athletic grandson of 8 years paddle boarded for one hour and loved his first paddle board experience. We rented double and single kayaks for one hour and paddled

around half of the lake, cutting across the calm lake to return. We did not eat at a restaurant, but there are many within easy driving distance as well as a small grocery store and coffee/ice cream shops. We went to 3 nearby waterfalls to take photos and enjoy the beautiful area. We rode the 70 minute round

trip "READING" train ride initiating and returning to the town of Jim Thorpe. We investigate 2 museums, one in Jim Thorpe and another in the nearby town where miners use to enter the famous anthracite coal mines. We want to return to experience the actual coal mine tours when we have warmer clothing. Finally we hope to enjoy the bike trail along the river after being taken up stream with our bikes on the Reading Train. There are so many activities yet to enjoy!
