Great place for a guys weekend
Our group of 13 had an awesome time at Pines Chalet. Easy access to paddle boarding at the beach and fire pit in the evenings. We would recommend to others.
The property was beautiful, and extremely spacious even for our party of 16! Had pretty much all the essentials, needed to bring very little from home. Also a great location, plenty of entertainment and activities within a reasonable distance. Would absolutely recommend to anyone and I look forward very much to staying in this property again. The owner, Barry Katz, was more then helpful and if he didn’t have the answer, he was sure to get one as soon as possible. Excellent communication availability too, all around great experience!
House is great, Whether you are shooting pool or playing Monopoly on the huge dining room table or taking a steam shower and jumping in the hot tub (which my kids did daily as a break between skiing at Jack Frost and Big Boulder), you will have a great time. We have been renting from Barry for over 3 years now. All the houses he owns are wonderful, fully equipped with dishes, extra blankets, pillows, etc... each year we rent a different one. We always have a great time and we never have a problem reaching Barry if we need anything. I will only rent from Barry now, I have had problems in the past with different owners but Barry is great to work with and quickly addresses all my questions. I highly recommend all of Barry’s homes. Thank you for another great vacation! Trish I
My family and I rented this chalet over Christmas and had a wonderful time! Communication with Barry was great and he was very responsive and helpful.The chalet itself was plenty of room for the 13 of us (and a dog). We cooked all our meals - the pots and pans were plentiful! And while we brought our own games, they also had a number of games at the house to play too. We enjoyed the hot tub after a day of skiing/snowboarding at nearby Jack Frost, and on a rainy day, went to the casino that was about 30 minutes away. Everyone also enjoyed the foosball and pool tables at the house. It was a perfect space for a gathering and I highly recommend it. I'm hoping my family wants to rent a house again in the future so that we can come back!
We had a large group of 4 families.. 8 adults and 6 children. Layout of house encouraged family activities at any and all levels...kids didn't even focus on electronics, even on rainy days! Easy access to lake and other activities. Owner was quick to respond to any questions. Will definitely come back!
This was a great house for our crew: three families (six adults, seven kids, and two dogs). Plenty of room for everybody. On a quiet street a few blocks back from the lake front. Quick access to the beach area and other lake activities. Owner was very responsive to every question I had throughout the week.
I rented with Barry in the winter and had a wonderful time and it was the easiest renting process and there were no problems, so of course I came back to see what summer down there had to offer. There was a group of us and we were not disappointed. We stayed for the week and there was always something to do. The lake, tennis, volleyball, bars and restaurants all within minutes of our property. And when we decided to go a little further there was even more to do. We went hiking and kayaking with only a 30 minute drive. It is in a great location and it is a very nice place to stay. We never have a problem renting with Barry and with any questions he's always quick to answer. Definitely plan to come back in the winter again.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Barry was an awesome host, he was so quick to get back to us and made sure we had the best experience possible. The house was so close to both big boulder and jack frost. It was extremely private from neighbors around us. The description of the house doesn't do it justice! I would recommend renting with Barry and I will definitely be renting with him again!
Our group had an amazing time. Spacious, clean, well maintained home. Simply a perfect long weekend. Everything was in perfect order including the hot tub, wifi, pool table, fireplace, flat screen smart TV and everything else that is listed in the features. The kitchen was well furnished with appliances, pots, pans and dishware. There was 17 of us and we all had a great time with no complaints. Barry and Kari are wonderful owners and very helpful. Looking forward to renting this place again in the near future. The location is great as well with many activities to do. VERY spacious. If your looking for a place to have fun with your friends and family this is the place to be !!
This cabin was perfect for our long weekend with friends for tubing & making memories. We were part of 4 families that came for the weekend - the house is big enough that we never felt like we were on top of each other. The hot tub was a great place to relax & unwind. Barry was readily available via text if we had any questions.
I held a workshop for my church youth group of about 15 people. We honestly could not ask for a better host. He was more than helpful regarding all my questions about the house. Every email I sent him was replied within the hour. When we arrived, my group was extremely pleased with the beauty and cleanliness of the house. It was exactly the way it was described and had everything we needed and more. The host was very thorough with the details of the property and very clear with the check-in/out instructions. He was also aware that my group was planning on going to Jack Frost/Big Boulder to snowboard/ski. There were several times when he would send me emails with deals he would come across online, which I found extremely generous. I HIGHLY recommend this house and if the house is not what you’re looking for, try to find another by this host. He will not disappoint. Truly the best service you could ask for!
Recently stayed at this house with some family and friends. There were 8 adults and 5 kids. Everyone slept comfortably and there was room for others if needed. Barry was a great host and great communicator. We've come to Lake Harmony a few times and this was definitely the best house. Would highly recommend for winter and/or summer visits!
I've rented many houses in the Poconos area and I must say this has been by far the best house I've ever rented. The description of the house is perfect, no details were left out. Everything in the house is updated and nicely placed. We had a decent size group. There were 8 people total 7 adults and one small child and the bedding space fit everyone comfortably. Our group loved the house so much and felt like it had everything we needed for a bonding weekend that we never left the house. Not only is the house great the owners were wonderful to work with. They were very understand and accommodating to all our needs. The couple responded to all of our inquiries really quickly. From a customer service aspect, it was a pleasure to work with them. I highly recommend this rental, you will not be disappointed.
3 couples with MANY young children found the perfect house to fit all of our needs. It contained all of the necessary essentials and the layout/space was absolutely perfect for all. Barry has been extremely accommodating and responsive and in general a true pleasure to deal with. Would definitely rent this property again in the future!
I had a wonderful mini vacation with my family at Lake Harmony. There is a lot to do in the area for kids, teens and adults. We are a family of 6, with two babies and two teens and everyone had a great time. Barry was an excellent communicator and very personable which made renting from him a pleasure. The house fit our needs and was very spacious and allowed everyone to have his or her own space! The area is beautiful and offers a great variety of activities.
We had a group of 11 mothers/daughters and stayed at this great house! This is the second home that I rented from Barry and it did not disappoint. The house had everything in it to meet our needs. We had not been up the mountains during the summer months, so this was a little different for us. It was truly enjoyable to be able to use the outside amenities during warm climate. Even the hot tub was nice at night. Barry is a wonderful owner to work with. He gets back to you immediately and tries to accommodate all of your wishes if possible. I highly recommend this rental for families with children of all ages and/or big groups.
Our family of 4, plus our dog had such a great Lake Harmony vacation. The house was perfect- it was so spacious, clean, hot tub was great, wrap around deck was perfect and the location was awesome. There is so much to do and see. We saw so many animals around the property, which really enhanced our expierence. Barry is a terrific owner. He is extremely responsive and really cares about your expierence at his home. We will be back for sure!
LOVED this house. 11 of us stayed here and it was the best time. Very clean and well kept, perfect location as well, close walk to the beach. We rented kayaks and paddle boards during the day and got to explore the lake. Coming home to the hot tub and large deck was perfect. The owner had quick communication and was very helpful. Would recommend to anyone.
Went up to this house for a golf weekend with a group of guys, and we had an excellent time! The house was beautiful, and we made great use of the pool table and hot tub. Barry was extremely helpful and easy-going, and it was a pleasure to rent from him. I would definitely come back and rent this house again!
This is my group's 3rd time at Lake Harmony and it was by far our best experience. The house itself is very beautiful and was perfect for my group of 14 people. The house has privacy but also located well enough where you can go out and explore the surrounding area without a hassle. Barry is extremely helpful and makes himself available to his renters. There was not one negative aspect to the experience and I look forward to renting with Barry in the near future. Would recommend for any large group. Thank you to Barry for his lovely property.
Its my 2nd time going to Lake Harmony and staying at Barry's Place. I liked it so much I had to come again. This time I spent Mother's day weekend there with mom. She loved it as much as I did. I recommend this rental, because Barry is the best host. He is very accommodating throughout the whole rental process and throughout your stay. He always makes himself available. The rental is spacious, Clean, modernized, and beautiful. Barry also is very informative on activities his renters can partake in, although the house is very cozy and fun on its own. There's a pool table, chess table , Three flat screen Tv's, DVD player, cable, and Hot Tub! You cant go wrong with this rental ! I will be renting with Barry again next year for sure :)
First time to Lake Harmony. Went with group of friends and our kids and once we entered the home we knew we had made a good choice, the place was just lovely. Clean, spacious, easy to get to as well. We really were reluctant to leave. Updated and modernized. The owner, Barry, was wonderful, such a pleasure to work with. I certainly would recommend this rental. Thanks Barry.
Barry made the process very easy and worked with us every step of the way every detail was covered either via email or talking on the phone. There was never a no in the conversation he found a way to accommodate us in every way. The house is great for multiple families and has everything you need. Kids can be downstairs while adults are upstairs or everyone can be together. Great house and great getaway with the family. We will definitely rent again with Barry.
We had a family winter vacation this past weekend and had a fabulous time. We highly recommend this house as it is very clean, pet friendly, spacious and in a great location. We look forward to renting again and appreciate Barry's attention to detail and easy process for rental.
We had a girls trip this past weekend with about 12 of us total, and had a lovely time. The house had everything we needed, we went snow tubing which was very fun, and it was so nice to cozy up to the fireplace at night. Barry was very attentive and we look forward to coming back to Lake Harmony in the near future!
My cousins and I had an awesome weekend at this home. The owner was very responsive during the reservation process. There was plenty of space for all 11 of us to eat, sit, watch TV and enjoy the fireplace. The steam shower came in very handy after a day of skiing at Jack Frost. We look forward to another great ski weekend next year at this same location.
This property was just about perfect in every way! There was plenty of space for our group to sleep, but also room to spread out and relax. The location is great, not too far from shops and restaurants, and you can see the slopes of Big Boulder through the backyard trees. Not close enough to walk to much of anything, but definitely relaxing and refreshing. Great appliances and clean living/recreation space. Would recommend to anyone, and will probably be returning in the future!
We arrived to a beautiful, clean, and massive residence. It was secluded, but not too far from convenience stores, bars, and a casino. The house was incredible...plenty of room to sleep, a fantastic deck, a grill, and hot tub. I'd recommend this to anyone, and will probably end up renting again.
My friends and I stayed at this amazing house for a getaway weekend and had the most amazing time. The house was clean, big, and chock full of amenities. Barry, the manager, was easy to communicate with and very helpful. The location could not be better. Walking distance to the lake with amazing views from the crests. I would definitely stay here again when I visit the Poconos.
Owner is very easy to deal with and home is exactly as advertised and very clean. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably, (there was 14 adults and one baby for two nights) great kitchen with everything needed for cooking, complete with a great prep area. The foliage was spectacular; the best I have seen in years. The hot tub is clean and roomy and was a lovely luxury that all the "older folk" enjoyed often. Great value and great house. We will return I'm sure. It would be a great location for skiing in the winter and water sports in summer too.
If you have found this house you do not need to look any further. Barry has not done it justice in his description - house really has it all. My group of 12 (3 families) could not have been happier with everything about the house and the area. Barry was a pleasure to deal with and returned our damage deposit right away. We cannot wait to come back again and again. KAB
I recently stayed at this house and it was perfect for our group. It was clean, had a great location with woods in the back, and is close to a lot of activities. Barry was very organized with the whole process and great to work with. The hot tub was a great way to relax after a whole day of playing paintball! I will definitely stay here again.
My hubby and I rented this house with our family and invited my hubby' s parents, sis, bro, nieces and nephews..we had 6 adults, 5 young adults (20-24), 3 kids (10-14) and 2 dogs. Never once did we feel crowded. This house was great with lots of room..youngens loved being downstairs with pool table. we enjoyed the porch and hot tub..house was clean and Barry the owner was very attentive to any questions or concerns. Would recommend this home
This house was perfect for a bachelor party I put together. The deck was great with a beautiful sky at night. It's about a mile walk to the lake. Close to casinos, paintballing, etc. The owner Barry was very helpful with payments and communication. Would love to rent from him in the future. My only concern was the condition we found the pool table and BBQ. Pool table was not level so playing on it was difficult. The triangle and 1 pool stick was also broken. The BBQ was not properly cleaned from previous renters. We cleaned it ourselves which was not a problem. Those two things aside, the house was perfect for what we needed. Still so much more to explore right around that area. We hope to return.
We stayed here for a bachelorette party in early June and it was the perfect getaway for everyone. We had a great time grilling on the porch, going to the lake, hanging in the jacuzzi and experiencing the charm the Poconos has to offer. As the organizer of the trip, I was beyond appreciative of how communicative Barry was throughout the whole renting process.
After accidently putting an atv thru my back window of my brand new truck, having to leave midweek for work, it was nice to come back to this home. It was just as advertise! Great beds, pool table and big flat screens, everything you needed. As one reviewer said, yes there were stains on the carpet downstairs and the frig missing the shelves,but if people would show respect for other peoples property there would not be stains and probably shelves. How hard is it that if you spill something YOU clean it up! People need to take responsibility for there actions. BTW if you go fishing in the lake get a license, we got $400 in fines! But that's our fault.
This house is everything this website says and more. Barry and his wife were a pleasure to deal with from our initial contact all the way through arriving at the house and afterwards. House was perfect for our group - first class all the way. Had everything we needed and wanted. We all enjoyed the beach and the outdoors, and there is so much to do in the area that we could not get it all in. We cannot wait to come back again and again. A
We rented this unit for an extended weekend. The place was a disgrace. It was filthy dirty and not what was described in the listing. Stains on the carpet were disgusting. We actually had to clean this place before we could use it. The refrigerator was also disgusting and missing all the shelves on the door, not enough dishes and absolutely not one knife included with the silverware except for carving knives. Just a disgrace!
We encourage anyone reading this review to read the other reviews, especially the ones that follow this one. You will see repeated references to how responsive my wife and I are to our guests, and how wonderful our house is. This review was not posted until almost 6 weeks after the rental, was not posted by the person that rented from us (but was posted by one of the group) and the only issue of which my wife and I were advised prior to this review was the refrigerator gasket was off (but it functioned) and that the house was vacuumed, but that there was some dust. They also contacted me after 11 pm on a Saturday night to complain about the neighbors, and I immediately contacted the appropriate security service late that night. NO other guests before or after this one complained about dishes, silverware or knives - or noise. Had my wife and I been advised of any issues with cleanliness we would have immediately sent back the cleaning service, which has since been replaced due to other complaints from much more responsive and understanding guests. Please read our other reviews and you will undoubtedly agree that this one star review was not deserved.
Overall, I had a wonderful experience. Mr. Katz was very prompt in responding to all correspondence and provided important information that made the trip go smoothly. The house looked wonderful in the pictures, but was actually better in person. Everyone in my group loved the house. I had a great experience from beginning to end and will be back in the future.
I loved staying here. Barry was a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. He made himself available to us throughout the whole weekend in case we needed anything. There was a slight issue with the stairs due to the previous tenant, barry made sure to contact me and inform me so that no one would get hurt . That made an amazing impression on my party and I . The house is cozy and beautiful. The weekend was relaxing. Everything he stated on the website is accurate. We didnt get to enjoy some of the outdoor amenities ,such the lake and beach due to the season. But I cant wait to come back and visit. I highly recommend this home for a great and relaxing getaway.
Great home - It was everything promised in the description. Barry and his wife are very helpful, responsive and made the rental process seamless. Everyone in my group said it was a great find (and one person said they have a coworker who has stayed at this exact house & loved it). I would definitely come back here and rent with Barry!
This whole property is amazing but it really comes down to one thing and that is the owner. Barry is an amazing person to rent from. He is helpful with any questions you have and genuinely makes you feel welcomed. The house is 5 mins from big boulder which is nice and the hot tub is an amazing addition. House is stocked with everything you need to cook. I would definitely come back.
Great home with lots of room for all to spread out and enjoy. We were up at the house through a snow storm and although we were inside for a part of the time the house never seemed crowded or cramped. The hot tub and deck were great and added to the relaxing atmosphere. The owner is a true professional and made the rental process extremely easy and straight forward. We were very pleased with the entire house, the area and the attractions. Would definitely rent the house again in the future.
We took a group of 13 to this rental in December and had a fantastic time. More than enough bedrooms and space to accommodate our group, and very large living room for communal activities. Hot tub was great as well. Would definitely recommend to others looking for similar experience!
We had a great time during our stay at this house. It was our 12th year staying in the Poconos during Christmas week and the house well suited our needs. The kids (all teens) made their home base on the first floor where they played pool and video games. The kids skied while we shopped. We ate out almost every night then went in the hot tub. It was a fun time and we look forward to going back next year!
We stayed over labor day weekend and unanimously loved it. The cabin is large and has plenty of amenities for those who just want to hang out in the cabin as we did most of the time. We also took advantage of the nearby trails and did some hiking. There are a few restaurants near by if you don't feel like cooking and a grocery store not too far away.
We had a 5 star vacation. We (grandparents), and our kids, and grandkids (ranging in ages 2-14). The layout of the house was perfect. There are three large TVs - downstairs, main floor, and master bedroom. When the older kids wanted time to themselves, they could hang out downstairs. We spent quality time on the deck located off the living room, and enjoyed the hot tub most nights. For entertainment we went to Camelback Mountain Water Park; Hickory Run State Park; Boulder Field; went white water rafting (family style); and the older kids paid to have a motorboat pull them around the lake on a large tube. We enjoyed going to the small Lake Harmony beach, which was not crowded. There was a boat dock by the swimming area where we put our inflatable boats. We saw many deer around and we did have a bear get into our garbage. Yes, we actually saw the bear at the end of the driveway. The owner was very nice, helpful, and pleasant to deal with.
Great house in a really nice location. Our kids are older now (early 20's) and they have all declared this is their fave Pocono house. (We've rented alot of houses in the Poconos.) Great deck/hot tub/game room. I absolutely loved the master bedroom. The bed was extremely comfortable. We had lots of room and enjoyed the lake & hiking & bike riding. The tennis court was in great shape., Barry was very nice. One small suggestion- may want to look at replacing the pool table. There is a "curve" to one side of the table. No doubt a hefty tenant prob leaned on it too hard. All in All though, loved the house and the beauty of nature. Lots of deer and even saw a bear one night. Thank fully, my dog just barked. Whew!
This property was great for our weekend getaway for 12 of my friends and I (ages 26-32 years old). The house is modern and updated with all the amenities we needed. It was very clean and the description matched the house perfectly. It had the perfect blend of seclusion and activities that we were looking for. We made a last-minute booking, but the rental process was seamless and the landlord was extremely easygoing.
Highly recommended! From beginning to end our vacation was an overwhelming success.Barry was a pleasure to deal with,the house has all the amenities one might need,spacious hot tub,pool/ping pong table,3 flat screen tv's and steam shower in gorgeous master bedroom.Huge wrap around deck perfect for large group.I hope you have the house available for next semester.
I rented this house for a ski weekend with my three sisters and our families. We really loved the house. It was very large, open, comfortable and clean. We loved the location to the mountain, and we also loved the hot tub! The owner was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. We have rented many houses in the past but this one was the best!! We will definately be coming back to this house!! Thanks Barry for making our weekend so enjoyable!!
This house was a great setup for us. We had 3 families including 9 kids - 4 girls and 5 boys. The bunk bed rooms were great on the first floor and the kids spent most of their time there watching TV and playing games. The adults took over the top 2 floors and it was a home away from home. Close to Big Boulder and Jack Frost. We highly recommend this house!
The house is VERY close to Big boulder and less than 10 minutes from Jack frost. Plenty of good restaurants and grocery shopping nearby. The home is huge with space for 3 families, without getting in each other way. We have 3 boys from 9-16, a teenage girl and my 80+ year old parents along for a post Christmas ski trip. The beds were comfy, the hot tub hot and the steam shower was a huge hit....if not addictive. We had deer at the backdoor that would eat an apple out of your hand! Barry, the owner is extremely accommodating and takes good care of his properties. You can't miss with this one!
The house is just as described. Welcoming, comfortable, and spacious. Really well laid out. Barry was a pleasure to deal with and made sure that we were pleased with everything. A great time was had by all and we can't wait to go back next year! You will not be disappointed if you choose this home.
This house was amazing! Not only was beautiful but it was spacious and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook which is extremely convenient. We loved the fact that there were two living areas, both with televisions. We booked the house in December but we fell in love with the wrap around deck so we plan on coming back in the summer so we can actually enjoy hanging out outside. I would definitely recommend renting this house!
Enjoyed staying in this beautiful house. We came out for a weekend of golf in the fall and couldn't have asked for a better set up. Nearby are some excellent restaurants and wonderful golf courses. We relaxed and used the hot tub after a long day of golf. Perfect for our group and we will definitely be back next year.
Our family really enjoyed staying at this house, for many reasons. We had young children with us who enjoyed exploring in the woods and looking for salamanders and other critters. We enjoyed feeding the deer that came to the house daily around lunch time. We enjoyed the fact that the children could be playing in one area of the house or watching their movie while the adults could have time to play board games and laugh and have a good time in another area of the house. There was plenty to do while you were not at the lake. The house is very inviting and welcoming and you really feel as though you can live in the house while on your vacation and not be fearful of damaging anything. This is a good thing if you take young children with you:) We would love to visit here again!
