House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps
You could not ask for a better location! So much to do onsite and within just a few minutes of the house if you so choose! But there is no pressure to do so, just the availability of many options if you are so inclined!
Of all the vacation properties we own, this one is THE most relaxing!
And now with our recent upgrades it is the undisputed winner hands down! We love the brand new kitchen, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, hardwood laminate flooring throughout (I thought it was the real McCoy at first), and the new baths are luxurious! Freshly painted, new carpeting in the first floor bedrooms, it looks and lives great!
This beautiful contemporary home with cathedral ceilings features 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, two story stone wood burning fireplace, loft, garage, decks (front and back), a screened porch, foosball table, darts and so much more. Winter, spring, summer or fall you will find this haven like no other. A place to unwind, privacy and close proximity to pools, walking trails, recreation, ski slopes, fine dining - you choose the pace and on your terms. We've created the perfect back drop for you to cook waffles and pancakes on a Sunday morning, or to roast marshmallows and make smores over an open fire in the back after a day at the beach, to get caught up on your summer reading list, to watch the newest release, to relax, to unwind after a day at the slopes, to celebrate a glorious day with a cocktail or sip your favorite cognac in front of a roaring fire - the choice is yours.
Lake Naomi is Like No Other!
Our home is conveniently located just steps away from the Lake Naomi Clubhouse and pool. Be sure to check out the Logan Steele Community Center which opened May of 2007 with a heated indoor pool, state of the art exercise facilities, steam room, sauna, hot tubs, kids rec area, indoor tennis, gym and so much more! It's wireless with a nice cafe'!
Lake Naomi, a 277 acre lake community has been designated a Platinum Club of America, a prestigious honor bestowed to only 235 clubs of the 6000 that apply. It is also listed in the 99 Best Resort and Recreation Communities, according to J.B. Wiley and Sons.
The endless walking trails, access to the lake and guaranteed relaxation all come with the house at no additional charge! For an additional fee, a temporary membership to the Lake Naomi/Timber Trails Resort can be arranged giving you unlimited access* to all pools (indoor and out), platform tennis, dog park, sauna, steam room, fitness, tennis, golf, club restaurants, kid's clubs, the fabulous new rec center and so much more! Rates vary depending on the time of year. Whether you want to golf, hike, sail, swim, ski or just lull the day away, there is no place in the Poconos more beautiful and relaxing. *Green fees and court time may be additional.
The two pools are open starting Memorial Day weekend and remain open until a week or so after Labor Day, weather depending. The pool is closed during the week until mid June and after Labor Day weekend. The HUGE indoor pool is open year round. We are situated within a 7 minute walk to the FABULOUS Lake Naomi pools which overlook the lake with views that are simply breathtaking! You can't beat our location if the Lake Naomi pool is a frequent destination while vacationing!
In the winter, this home is minutes from some of the best ski resorts in the Poconos - Camelback, Jack Frost, and Big Boulder. Not to be overlooked, is the neighboring Pocono Raceway. And the brand new super duper Kalahari Indoor Waterpark, open year round with day passes, dining and shopping all available on site! Fine dining, Pocono 500, Pennsylvania 500 Sprint Cup races, theatre, concerts, culture, you name it!
The new NASCAR retail shop is one-of-a-kind with all the latest NASCAR merchandise. Lake Naomi is only 14 miles from the Pennsylvania Turnpike. It is very convenient for local shopping and the outlets which are less than a twenty-minute car ride. And don't forget gambling and the casinos that have recently come into the region - if you need a little excitement, risk and reward are just a short car ride away!
Although during the summer months the community is quite popular, the spring is a great time for hitting the trails horseback riding. Smell the aroma of mountain flowers... kayaking, fishing, bird watching, white water rafting, horseback riding, hunting, paint ball......YOU CAN DO IT ALL HERE!
And then come autumn? A favorite destination for leaf peepers with its abundance of color and you can do it all over again! So visit us in the Poconos, 2400 square miles of mountains, lakes, rivers, waterfalls and woodlands. The community boasts 25,000 acres of surrounding forest and game lands. Don't miss Bushkill Falls (the Niagara of the Poconos), the Delaware Water Gap, the Appalachian Trail, Lehigh Gorge, whitewater rafting and SO MUCH MORE!
Poconos - the stream between the two mountains!
About the Owner
We own a hand full of vacation rentals and we pick our properties based on whether we would enjoy vacationing in a certain region and if the house would create a meaningful and memorable backdrop for friends and family to gather. We try to create an environment that offers more personality, comfort and coziness than a sterile hotel room or a home that is void of any warmth or homey feel.
My husband jokes that some day he would like to actually use the homes we work so hard to maintain and update, but our children are younger and very active so our free time is not our own.
My husband is from the Buffalo area and I grew up in the Philadelphia area, although college, grad school and our early careers took us to various places across the country. We returned to the Philadelphia region to start our family and our home base is a suburb of Philadelphia.
Welcome to our home away from home!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time at the house. Lots of fun had by all at the L_____/G______ wedding! Buck provided lots of laughs and we loved the porch. Thank you for allowing us to use your home.
(4 traveler reviews)
We had a fabulous time in this beautiful house in Lake Naomi. Wendy (the owner) was very helpful and accommodating to our needs. We rented the house for my mom's 60th birthday with my whole family and it was just perfect. The kitchen was roomy and great to cook in, the living room was cozy, the beds were comfortable, and the dining room table was great to have the whole family around for a nice dinner. If you rent this house, you won't be disappointed! Thank you so much!
Pocono Retreat !
A recent visit to this wonderful home confirms everything which is described in the web site. The layout is excellent and the house is easy to live in. A renovated kitchen opens onto the dining room and living room. The flow of traffic is terrific. Two bedrooms and a bath on the first floor provide private quarters!
A loft on the second floor allows for separate activities, TV, games, etc. And the two bedrooms and bath on this floor again provide private quarters.
Outdoor living is also part of the plan! There is a delightful screened porch off the kitchen. An outdoor patio with lounge chairs is a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful mountain air.
This house offers complete privacy. But Lake Naomi and its club are nearby as are popular attractions for young and old.
Our visit was a completely satisfying experience.
Great Place for the Family!
An awesome place for the whole family! There was always something to do for the kids. The Community center was perfect for not only the kids, but the parents too! There was an arcade, an indoor pool (with lifeguards always on duty), basketball courts, tennis courts, and even racquetball courts! For the parents, there's an awesome fitness center! Also at the pool there was a relaxing hot tub. And when all the kids got hungry, we went to the delicious cafe! We spent some time at the community center, but we also went to the lake. It was perfect for the kids because it was like going to a beach, but safer and smaller. Me and my husband were able to relax without having to worry too much about the kids. Great place for the family, HIGHLY recommend!!
Beautiful but at a High Unexpected Cost
The house was great, we had a fabulous time. I would love to give this place at least a 4, but dealing with the owners left a very sour taste. The woman is a handful to deal with, to say the least.
To begin, I practically went through an interview before I was considered, where do I live, what do I do for work, who do I live with, it became a bit inappropriate. I had an uneasy feeling about in the beginning, but it was 1 month before the new yr and we were getting desperate. The rental is priced very well, but beware b/c she will try to get as much money out of you as possible. First there is a cleaning fee. When we left she complained at how dirty the kitchen was. The place was not left in disarray, everything was put away, deck was cleared. I'm sorry, but if I am paying a cleaning fee I will not be wiping down the counter tops. We were all very careful to keep the house in tip top shape, b/c I sensed the owner was quite particular. In the contract it states not to move any of the furniture. And by that she means inches! The table was literally moved 6in to make room to pass, there were 10 of us! The fooze ball table was moved also a few inches so that we can use it "moving charge". She also complained about pillows moved from one room to another. Which I doubt was true b/c we did not spend much time in the bedrooms, let alone moving stuff from one bedroom to another.
There is also one other thing. We were supposed to turn on and off the power switch to the water heater or something like that. Accidentally we turned off power to the whole place, and a few pipes froze. We admitted our fault, even though it was not clearly marked for which one to turn off. And if not familiar with the switches it can be confusing. Anyhow the supposed damages were to be subtracted from the deposit, and she stated that the damage would be significantly more. So we rightfully asked for proof. Pictures and estimates were requested and when they were finally sent they were very vague, the picture was of a corner! Furthermore her stories weren't completely lining up. First it was a professional, then it was her husband, then another professional doing the work. Reviews from other sites have sited similar difficulties with this couple. They own a construction company and close associates of theirs are plumbers. Coincidence? maybe. Needless to say we didn't get our deposit back. Its really unfortunate, the place was great. But the trouble afterward was not worth it.
From the Owner
“When I was between jobs and our children were very young, my mother convinced to get away for a few days and suggested the Poconos. 'The Poconos???!!!' I said...immediately heart shaped beds, champagne glass hot tubs and all that is tacky is what came to mind! Lake Naomi could not be further from what came to mind. We stayed with friends in Lake Naomi and quickly became hooked! An avid tennis playing family, you have fabulous facilities, high level competition, not to mention the gorgeous lake and pools - we loved our time there! We own places at and on the beach and this is the place we relax the best, year round! You can choose to be solitary or find a pick-up game if one felt like venturing out. We fell in love with Relaxation 101 when we pulled up to the house! Steps from the Lake Naomi pool, we were instantaneously struck with the open floor plan and the two story stone fireplace as soon as we opened the front door! We loved the fact that if you are in the kitchen you are still a part of what may be unfolding elsewhere, enjoying a roaring fire or just hanging out after dinner either sitting around the large DR table or outside in the screened in porch. When we need to get away, this is where we come, year round and so close to home! Rarely is traffic an issue and if we want to shop the outlets, ski or check out Camel Beach the opportunity is there!”

From the Owner
“Last year we renovated the kitchen, the two baths, and replaced all the flooring on the first floor with an engineered laminate that really opened up the space. The bathrooms are so much more luxurious and kitchen is so much more functional. Don't forget to check out the fusball table - a favorite hangout for my kids, and likely yours too! We love the stone fireplace that runs two floors, the open space floor plan, the screened porch, the brightness of the house even though we are in the woods, the wonderful cross breezes and the single car garage which provides protection when the weather is not cooperating. Again, we have tried to decorate in a manner that is comfortable, tasteful and inviting. We hope you agree!”
