I live in NYC and like to travel. I enjoy fishing and the outdoors but NYC seems to lack those qualities but it makes up for it in other ways.

Our vacationing party of 2 adult couples had the distinct pleasure of staying at the Poconos Lake House. We couldn't have been more delighted. William anticipated every need to make our stay completely relaxing and enjoyable. He provided detailed driving directions as the location is hard to find at first...but we found the house easily thanks to William's careful directions and photos. He even suggested a stop at the market, where we found all our groceries. Very clever! The house is perfectly located on a quiet, picturesque lake. It is located in a tree lined neighborhood of homes both on the lake and across the road. William's home in our opinion is the best location. The other home residents greeted us warmly. The house is immaculately clean and stocked with absolutely everything you need to settle in. As we all enjoy cooking, grilling and long talks over candlelit dinners, we found all the dish ware and incidentals we needed to seamlessly enjoy ourselves. There was even a fully stocked wood pile for evening fires in the fireplace. The beds are very comfortable, linens and towels freshly cleaned and thoughtfully placed on the beds. All the windows open easily allowing in fresh breezes. The 3 season porch overlooks the lawn and lake and was our preferred setting for our fabulous meals. The row boat was easy to use and made for lovely early morning and evening quiet time on the lake. We all love to hike and given we only had 2 1/2 days, we easily found ourselves on a great 3 hr hike about 1/2 from the house, right on the Appalachian Trail. The clubhouse pool was acceptable; it could use some attention...but it was only a 5 min. walk from the house and good for a dip or laps. We went for morning wake up walks on the road around the lake. Virtually no traffic. Just the sound of bird calls, and happy children playing outside. All in all, this house is obviously cared for and loved by it owners, the Ackerman family. They clearly take pride in their vacation home and I hope they draw like-minded people who will appreciate their willingness to share their treasure with us vacationeers. We plan to return in the future...and I only hope that William will have an opening when we do. William, thanks so much for lending us your home. It was more than any of us could have hoped for and just what we needed after pushing hard at our respective jobs in the hot, humid city this summer.
We had the house for a month and had a really wonderful time. Will is a fantastic host. The house was spotless and Will sent us tons of information and maps about the area, where to shop, things to do. The house itself is very comfortable and spacious--we especially enjoyed the screened-in back porch looking out over the pond. It's quiet and peaceful, and very lovely. We were there in summer, so we could row across the pond and collect wild blueberries! There's a ton of activities within a half hour drive. Our favorites were two swimming holes at Hacker Falls and Raymondskill Falls. This is a great place to relax!
The Poconos Lake house has everything you need for a weekend getaway, a lake with a boat and fishing rods, a bbq, a firepit, and beautiful scenery. The house is nice and comfortable too. It was the perfect weekend escape from New York.
The lake house very comfortably hosted 5 people, each with their very own bed. The lake was beautiful and the boat a nice amenity; definitely bring your fishing gear! Our hours at the house were spent mostly in front of the grill and the fire pit. The proximity to fun Pocono things to do is very convenient. Our group went to Sunset Hill Shooting Range, minutes away. I would definitely recommend staying here for anyone looking for a relaxing Poconos weekend getaway.
Had a great weekend with some old friends in the Poconos, couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Really enjoyed having a lake, dock, and rowboat right in the backyard at our disposal. Great home and a very pleasant and helpful owner to boot. Would definitely recommend
The lake house was exactly what we needed for a little weekend getaway and had everything we needed from an internet connection to seclusion from the outside world.
William was a very generous and considerate host. He provided us with all of the information we needed for our stay and followed up to ensure that we got into the house without any problems, and that we enjoyed our stay. The lake house is beautiful and we will certainly be returning for another stay soon. Thank you for having us!
Great place..very relaxing long weekend....secluded and plenty for kids to play/run around in....place is very well maintained
This is a lovely house on a lake in the beautiful Poconos for a great price. Excellent host contact!
This is a beautiful house in the Poconos, and family/kid friendly too. There's a lake right outside for fishing or rowing the boat. You can relax in the outdoor space in the back of the house, make some bbq, or even roast marshmallows! If you'd rather stay indoors, there's the sunroom where you might catch a deer or two roam by! There's cable and wireless internet in the house which makes it very convenient to look up all the activities going around the area. Highly recommended.
Will is a great friend to travel with. He's full of energy and his love for the outdoors is infectious. He takes good care of his guests at his lake house and even special care of his property. I rented his lake house a couple of times and just love it there. It's such a beautiful, peaceful, safe, and affordable getaway. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
