My wife and I have 5 children between us. They have blessed us with 11 wonderful grandchildren!!! Our family also enjoys spending time at our home. Our goal is to provide our guests a home that is clean and comfortable with fun things to entertain everyone. Our community is small, safe and inviting. We hope you decide to join us soon...

Thank you,

Dolly &Chick Hatton

CHARLES "Chick" HATTON purchased this chalet in 2009

Why CHARLES "Chick" HATTON chose Lake Harmony Area

Our eldest son and his wife had been coming to Brier Crest for years . They loved the area so we both decided to build. We now get to enjoy this area with our entire family.

What makes this chalet unique

The community is small and safe with a security team and one entrance/exit. Our grandchildren take off for the lake to fish, the beach to swim or just take a hike. We feel comfortable that they are safe and having fun.

A Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family was very impressed by the Hattons' home and had a wonderful stay this past weekend. Mr. Hatton provided great customer service during the entire rental process. He was accessible and answered my emails promptly. He even checked in via text during our stay in case we needed anything. The home was beautiful and very bright. I love how the kitchen was fully stocked. There were lots of pots and pans, plates, cups and enough utensils for our group of 17. There were 2 coffee pots and even ground coffee in the cupboard. The Hatton's left us a nice basket with a lovely note to welcome us and some essentials: toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning wipes, etc. The house was immaculate and well maintained. Location of the home was perfect as it is situated on a quiet street. We spent a lot of time outdoors on the large deck and on the large front lawn. We also took a walk to the lake and played volleyball while the kids played nearby on the playground. In the evening, we sat around on the deck and played cards and just enjoyed the cool evening air. We felt so comfortable in the home. On Sunday, we drove to Terra Cottage Cafe for breakfast and dined outside on their covered deck since it was raining. Food and service was superb. I just called ahead and they accommodated our large group. By the time our food came, the sun had come out. It was just a perfect weekend! Looking forward to going back again! Thank you Mr. Hatton.

Spacious house. Kitchen was very well equipped. Deck is big and there were extra chairs which we could use. Instructions for everything were very clear. Kids loved it. Thank you for a lovely time and wonderful memories with friends and family.

Perfect House for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It isn't always easy to find a vacation rental that pleases everyone. When you factor in spouses, in-laws, siblings, toddlers and parents, the odds of getting the perfect place are pretty low. This house however, was perfect for everyone. First, and foremost, it was extremely clean. It even met my mother-in-law's exacting standards. Secondly, there was soooooo much space! There was room enough for everyone to get around and not be in each other's way, while also plenty of room to gather as a group and enjoy meals and fellowship. The kitchen had everything we needed and we made great use of it (and the grill as well). The bedrooms were very well furnished and the layout made it possible for us to have enough quiet and privacy for the kids when they went to bed.

There were a lot of great things to do nearby. We pretty much went to the small beach at the lake every day with the kids, but we also took side trips to Jim Thorpe (which I highly recommend, particularly for the train ride), Camelback Adventure Part and the Boulder Field at Hickory Run Park. When we weren't out and about, we let the kids run around in the yard and just enjoy the wonderful and abundant sights & smells of nature.

The house pretty much was everything we were looking for. Chick was extremely responsive if we had any questions or needed any information. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a good, spacious and clean vacation rental.

Large home, everything we needed, lovely lake community

  • 5 of 5

We rented for one week with our family, including young couples and now a couple of babies. The house slept 13 of us with ease, even the babies had their own rooms. The bedrooms are in the back of the house and very quiet. The kitchen was very easy to work with, including space for all of us to sit together both inside and out on the deck. The game room in the basement was great: pool table, old-time shuffleboard, and large screen TV. The house had absolutely everything we needed and is represented well in the photos.

The community is very nice, with a lake for boating and swimming, including a sandy beachfront with a playground. We enjoyed walks around the quiet neighborhood. Bring your own bikes - nice smooth roads. We also brought our own canoe, really enjoyed the afternoons on the quiet lake. Several of us went whitewater rafting one day, about 10 minutes away- a great family activity, not too challenging and a lot of fun. Hickory Run State Park is very close, we hiked a couple of times (boulder field, waterfall), and played their excellent disc golf course three times! The rest of the general area is kind of quiet- a little remote from the "action", but perhaps that's exactly what's needed for a mountain get-away.

All arrangements were very easy, Chick is very quick to respond, a real professional. Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us!

Nice house for big group, lovely area, great owner

  • 4 of 5

We vacation every year with a group of 12-14 adults (early 20s - mid-40s).

We found the home as described for the most part. Pros: lots of space, two different living/gathering areas, with the thoughtfully provided folding table we could all eat meals together (even outside too!), the well-stocked house (welcome basket was great with starters for essentials, house had some spices, soaps, etc. already there). The folks who cooked liked the kitchen - they thought there were plenty of pans and bowls and there were actual decent knives (sometimes hard to get in a rental!). The community was lovely - we saw so many deer, even a few other cute critters on our nightly walks. The lake was super clear, sandy, calm and great for swimming or relaxing. We had fun in the basement, with the big TV and pool and shuffleboard.

I do want to say how NICE it was that a house actually had enough chairs and dishes and etc for the number of people it slept. We always seem to rent places and then find out that it sleeps 20 but has 8 dinner plates or we can only fit 6 people around the dinner table or something. This house had table space, chairs, dishes, glasses, etc. all scaled up appropriately for the number of people. It was really refreshing to be able to eat at the same table together at the same time.

We had a few different interactions with the owner and he was universally responsive, respectful of our schedule, and kind. (He was really nice, even when we locked ourselves out by accident!). The A/C started struggling mid-stay and he requested to have folks come out a few times for part #s and rechecks and such and he was great about making sure their visits were OK with us and worked with our schedule, etc.

Before I mention the next thing, a disclaimer - most of us are the type to keep our noses in our phones or tablets during downtime, streaming video or gaming or something. So, we did notice the WiFi struggled to keep up with our admittedly very heavy usage. Cellular coverage for most carriers was spotty too.

The owner's recommended linen rental company worked perfectly, everything was waiting in the house when we arrived. I would say for anyone planning to rent linens - the house did include kitchen towels and bath mats, so just get the washcloth/hand towel/bath towel combo for each person and you should be set.

The house was clean, well-kept, roomy, and in an awesome little community with a responsive owner. We would recommend!

Excellent Home for Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in this home and we had such a great time that we already booked it for next year! We used it for our family reunion with 22 family members ranging in age from 3 to 79 years old. We all fit very comfortably, the house was SUPER clean, the kitchen was well-stocked and an added bonus was the 2nd fridge in the downstairs area. The kids had a ball either playing in the yard, hanging out in the cool basement and/or fishing & swimming down at the lake. The adults spent 90% of our time hanging out on the spacious & private deck. The owner was very responsive throughout the entire rental process, even bringing us shade umbrellas for the deck because it was a very hot weekend. All in all, I would highly recommend this home!
