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.

The perfect home for a large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

I can't possibly say enough wonderful things about this home! The layout of the house is perfect- with bedrooms in the back of the home and living space in the front. Early risers didn't bother those who wanted to sleep in and those that stayed up late laughing and hanging out did not disturb the kids who were already in bed! The downstairs room with the pool table and shuffleboard gave us hours of entertainment and fun. The second refrigerator in the lower level of the home was so beneficial to our large group! The community the house is in is beautiful! The beach was the perfect setting for our group. The men enjoyed fishing in the lake while the kids swam for hours. Because of the amount of wooded area in this community, the home feels secluded and private despite its close proximity to the beach and tennis courts. The owner of this home, Chick, is a delight to work with and is helpful every step of the way! We couldn't have felt more welcomed in this home! I highly recommend this rental to anyone considering a stay in the poconos area!

Beautiful Property, Furnishings & Locale

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Everything is beautiful, accommodating and comfortable in this home. Large pots for cooking, a surplus of dishes, glasses, cups, and cutlery, comfortable mattresses (a big plus for me), good cable service and acceptable WiFi, and easy access to the beach and lake. The owner is also very pleasant to deal with and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Overall just a lovely vacation getaway for a large family like ours.

Perfect place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine adults and two small children were more than comfortable in this well-appointed and spacious home. There was plenty of room for everyone to be together to relax, play games, enjoy meals, etc. If you wanted some time to yourself, there was room for that as well. Our group had fun fishing in the nearby lake, relaxing lakefront, biking around the community - and our kids looked forward to daily walks to the playground. We loved how close we were to nearby attractions and took advantage of the many things that there were to offer (like boat rentals and lakefront dining). Prior to, during, and after our stay, Chick was gracious, responsive and hospitable. We were all so appreciative of him and thankful for having the opportunity to stay at his family's beautiful home. We look forward to our next visit!

Amazing home for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our second visit for an annual family reunion in this beautiful home and will definitely be going back! Our family has rented many different homes over the years and this is one of the nicest we've stayed in. It's spacious and clean, very well-maintained, and the kitchen is fully stocked. We had 13 adults and 8 kids (from ages 4-80) and there was something for everyone. The front yard had a large grassy area for games of spikeball and corn toss (we brought our own), and the deck had two large comfortable tables with plenty of chairs to hang out in all day long. We also liked walking to the lake for fishing and/or swimming and the neighborhood streets were great for biking and walking. We were stuck indoors because of rain one night and the pool table and shuffle board were perfect entertainment for kids and adults alike.

Chick, the owner, was incredibly responsive and great to work with whenever I had questions. He even had a welcome basket on the table when we arrived with basic essentials. All in all, I would highly recommend this beautiful home!!

Remote area to rest and rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Chick was an incredible host and even prior to the stay, was back and forth in rapid communication with me. Any issues that arose were quickly handled. His kind and concerned way of handling everything felt that he truly cared about not just his home but how the guest experience was. I highly recommend!
