Why Marina chose Towamensing
This beautiful log house speaks to you, it beacons you to stay, relax and enjoy. No stay at the hotel feeling. Property is quite and secluded, yet close to all the activities the Southern Poconos has to offer at your fingertips. Beltzville Lake and State Park are truly beautiful and peaceful, and yet are only 1.5 hours from Philadelphia, and 2 hours from New York City. The lodge is such a short drive away from many major cities, and yet, so far removed from the hustle and bustle of every-day life. Beltzville lake is part of my happy memories of picnics, swimming, hiking, boating, and fishing at the lake!
What makes this Lodge unique
Serene setting. Feels like a waterfront and yet far enough from the lake that the motor boating noise does not bother you. The lodge has six guest rooms and a suite, each very private, with their own bathroom, balcony, fireplace, and cable TV. All bedrooms are located off of the central great room, which has a 26-foot stone two-sided fireplace. The house is ideal for spending lots of quality time together with family and friends, and yet allows for alone-time if that is what you are looking for. The dining room opens to the back deck, which overlooks the 8-mile long Beltzville Lake. There are hiking trails all around the lake, and you can walk to the lake right from the house. The State Park and swimming area are just two miles from the house, and there are picnic areas, swimming areas, and boat rentals available during the summer months. In the winter, Blue Mountain Ski Area is just 8 miles from the house, and Big Boulder and Camelback are just a bit further. The scenic, historic town of Jim Thorpe is just 11 miles from the house, with an abundance of restaurants, art galleries, and museums. For the nature enthusiast, there are biking trails, white water rafting, kayaking, and paint ball all within 15 minutes from the house.

WARNING it is NOT a 7 Bedroom house! House is great/Homeowner & amenities are why it got 2.5 stars
As I write this review I'm still waiting for my security refund BUT I’m risking what she might blame me for now that I am writing this review but I feel other travelers should be aware. DON’T deal direct, pay the fees & let vrbo / HomeAway fight your battle. The fireplaces: some work & some don’t, we couldn’t get the living room one to work & when I called the response I got was well it worked last weekend?!? Her husband who was very nice than helped us out & got it working & we ended up not calling her re: the others not working because it was fine without it. Bedrooms have TV's, HOWEVER only 2 TV’s (living room and king suite) have cable. The rest are smart TV’s that you can login into your personal account BUT the WiFi is so poor all they do is the buffering circle. FYI: some bedrooms DO have a VHS options & others have DVDs. House has a lot of flies in it which I thought was weird for the time of year, fridge & stove top didn’t work correctly. THIS HOUSE IS A 6-bedroom house that you can pay additional $$ for the 7th bedroom king suite. Our group was 21 people & if I hadn’t noticed the little red line around the 7th room picture online stating this was an additional fee we would have been screwed. When I requested info, it was through the app, the app only goes to 13 ppl BUT in my original info email I said how many we were BUT she didn’t see that & she quoted it with 6 bedrooms (which I don’t see how that is legal, whether I am 13 ppl or 21, your listing says 7 BEDROOMS: I want 7 bdrm). 2 wks before we came out I asked her to confirm we rented the whole house, she said NO. After showing endless evidence that I said we were 21, in the end we compromise on the additional fee she charged me cause we had no choice we had pain in full already. Trash: U R allowed 8 bags per stay & they charge $$$ for each added bag. The trash was over flowing, I took a pic to show her when we got there so we didn’t get blamed. She still gave us a hard time. We put our trash on the curb as directed & even took some home with us (gross) so she didn’t charge us. This is absurd! We are 21 ppl worried about how much trash we are producing. We were staying for 4 days & when u pay over a thousand a night trash shouldn't be a worry on vacation. I'm a vrbo user & owner & we take pride in treating others home with how we would want our house to be treated & I’ve never dealt with so much nonsense in a rental EVER!

All these statements are lies. This person was one of the worst tenants. Left a big stain on the carpet, furniture damages, left tremendous amount of garbage throughout the house and outside, was very rude, got upset about loosing $200 from the deposit and sent unfounded threats.
This vacation home was very clean and neat. It was in very good shape,.
We were group of 19 people including children and we all enjoyed a lot. Temperature setting and options were excellent. Clean air, clean home, beautiful landscaping and view. I recommend this to people who like to enjoy as a group. Kitchen was equipped with all appliances and set up. Utensils.
Pulling up to the house it I knew this was going to be a great weekend. Beautiful sight
I rented the lake house for my 30th birthday with 18 of my closest friends. The sleeping situation was perfect for everybody, the house is gorgeous inside and out. The house is fully stocked in everything and the setup is great for a large group of people being in one area. The views from the deck you can see the lake and the property. We stayed here in November but it was suited for year round activities. I would recommend this house to anyone that wants to get away and breathe some fresh air. Everyone of my friends are still talking about how great of a time it was. I would definitely rent this house again once in every season to get the full experience. Thank you
Wonderful House, Perfect for Families & Big Groups
We were a large group of six families (12 adults, 7 kids ranging in age from 1 1/2 years old to 12) and this property was perfect. The house is exactly as advertised, well appointed and situated - plus having a bathroom attached to each room was particularly helpful. It is a short walk to the lake and there are tons of activities nearby for adults and kids to include (but not limited to), golfing, the zoo, an enormous indoor waterpark, a brewery and strawberry picking. Marina was incredibly responsive and a great host. Def want to stay there again!
Beautiful and Spacious Log Home
Stayed here with siblings/spouses, total of 12, and had a wonderful weekend. The common areas - living room and dining room - was plenty big enough for 12 of us. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans. Each of the six bedrooms have a gas fireplace and spacious bathroom. There is a nice grocery store, Shop Rite, about 10 minutes away, to stock up for your stay. Marina responded quickly to any questions we had. Would definitely stay here again.
The home is beautiful.
The home was beautifully appointed and the owner, Marina very helpful.
