About this listing
This beautiful chalet style home is a short twenty (20) minutes and change from Camelback/Jack Frost/Big Boulder Ski Slopes and has 3 bedrooms, 1 den, 1 and a half baths in a gated community high in the Pocono Mountains. (Please note prices for the home differ depending on the time of year due to heating, holidays and sometimes days of the week, kindly consult the calendar.)
The upper level is a peaceful space sharing the den, master bedroom, a half bath and a sliding door that leads to a small deck area. There is a desk and sitting area in the den/study room. We have an airbed for the den area which plugs into an outlet to inflate and deflate easily. The air mattress is stored in the closet on the upper level. The master bedroom has a queen size bed that is low to the floor, along with a chair and sofa for comfortable conversations.
The main living level is an open space to the kitchen and living room areas with two sliding doors that open to a larger deck, two bedrooms (one full size bed and the other with two twin beds) and a full bathroom. The living room has a queen size sofa-bed.
The larger deck has a dual (gas/charcoal) grill all year round for grilling pleasures and during the Spring, Summer and Fall, a table and chairs for a grand outdoors eating experience, and the greatest hammock ever for a lazy afternoon nap!
This private community with 24 hour security, has 2 swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball courts and 5 lakes (stocked yearly with fish) for fishing, canoeing and kayaks (no motorized boats permitted). Two of the lakes with sandy beach areas are roped off for swimming and have picnic tables and playground for the children. The roads have very little traffic so bicycles, scooters, rollerblading and skateboards are a bit safer to use. Guests have full access to all the community's amenities.
Small pets allowed.

2. If you notice that something is running low or runs out (for example, toilet pater or dish-washing liquid), kindly notify us so we may replenish the item upon our return.
3. We usually keep wine in the house, if you should want to have some, please do so, just remember to replace it.
4. We have a septic tank which can overflow - a messy and expensive ordeal. In order to avoid this, we ask you and your party to take the care to not flush baby wipes, cleaning wipes or hair in the toilet.
5. We further ask you to not dispose of used oil, bacon drippings, and grease in the sink as it will clog the septic tank. Kindly place these oils in a jar kept and marked under the kitchen sink for proper disposal.

We have a larger lower deck for grilling,eating and swinging on the hammock and a small upper deck for sitting, reading or quiet conversations.
Tania the host was very welcoming and great with communicating back and forth. We really enjoyed our stay. We hung out on the patio for most of our stay, loved the hammock, and the deer who also call the surroundings of this home their home. However, there were a few things that were not available to us that I only mention to make future stays of others on airbnb more pleasant. Gas bbq was very low on propane therefore, we had to make a run out to get charcoal (no big deal). Wifi was not working but Tania called the cable company and got it sorted and working. Futon in the den upstairs was broken so Tania has placed an air mattress there in lieu of.
This has nothing to do with the house itself but the private community in which the house was situated was very disorganized and the people working there were very rude. On the first day, our family arrived in three different cars at different times. Minus my car, they gave the other two cars a very had time getting into the community saying that our names were not on the list (even though Tania had emailed them prior with all the driver's names- Tania warned me that they would be really strict about it). In the middle of the night when the last car arrived, they wouldn't let them in until I drove to the gate myself and proved that they were staying with me. Also, the public pools (or any public facility) you need a badge to use them. They wouldn't let us go into the pool because we did not have badges. Despite these things we had a great time and I would recommend this house to others.
Tania's house was as described with plenty of room for our bachelor crew. The location is in a guarded neighborhood with lots of privacy and wildlife around. It is a great place to spend a weekend close to the outdoors.
Tania has a very welcoming personality. She made the house feel like it was ours. She is a very cool and sweet lady. I would definitely recommend a friend to stay at her place! There were eight of us and my friends and I had a great time!
Tania was wonderful! She was very attentive and made us feel comfortable! We had a great time at the chalet for the weekend!
Tania was a great host and was very easy to get into contact with to arrange a wonderful July 4th weekend getaway. I stayed with seven friends and there was plenty of room for all of us. Unfortunately it rained for half the trip but we had a great time indoors bbqing on the deck and relaxing in the large living room. The community is very large and we had a great time at the lake . I would definitely recommend renting Tania's chalet
The home was great and Tania was an extremely gracious host. The house was in a perfect location that was fairly close to most of the attractions in the area. The house was extremely clean and tidy for our stay, and it was perfect for 6 people and could definitely host more. Would definitely book this again!
Our group of 10 stayed in Tania's home for a fun weekend trip. We were about 25 minutes from Jack Frost, which was perfect. Tania's home was an awesome place to stay, with ample sleeping room and big enough kitchen to cook and eat in. There simply isn't a better place for the price, and everyone was extremely satisfied with the house. Tania was readily available and very helpful throughout the whole process. Everyone in the group had a fantastic time, and we can't wait to rent Tania's home again. I would recommend this house to anyone!
