About the Owner
(2 traveler reviews)
the right decision!
We rented this house for thanksgiving, as we do every year... The owner go out of their way to make sure that our stay is comfortable and easy. And you are in the middle of everything, with the beach a few minutes walk and a view of big boulder mountain from the backyard. The house has free WiFi, bikes if you need them, an ample deck with grill and provided propane, an outdoor hot tub, many conveinences, condiments, etc. already there, so you don't have to pack it.... Too many places make you bring everything, right down to your own salt and pepper. With plenty of parking, and a circular driveway, it also meant that nobody ever had to get up and move their car, just because another person wanted to run out. We love this house, and will continue to come back every year.
Activity and Interests
We are very near the split rock resort... in fact, you may drive thru it while coming to our house. Most of the outdoor amenities at the resort are open for use, such as the miniature golf, boat rentals, and the volleyball courts. There are nominal fees associated with each.
Additionally the Galleria (At split rock) has a bowling alley, a movie theater, game rooms, etc. This is all open for you to use, just pay as you go. There is also a spa in the Galleria that offers massage/treatments/etc... Their phone number is 570-722-3260.
We also have a beach that is part of our association, at the end of wood street & lake drive. We have 10 badges in the house you can use for access to the beach.
There are restaurants in split rock (i.e Bel'Lago, Bench Warmers, Galleria Restaurant) but we generally stay on the 'Lake Harmony Side' of the lake. All of the places you'll find up there are reasonable, but we generally do Breakfast at the Terra Cottage Cafe, lunch at home or at the beach (order your hoagies and sanwiches from the country peddler), and dinner at Nick's Lake House (out on the patio looking over the lake) or at Louie's Prime (make a reservation) which is an upscale steakhouse that challenges the Capital Grille. Shenanigan's also has a good menu, and surprisingly good food - the chef there does a great job!
Of course there are many other places - Piggy's (breakfast / lunch), Shenanigan's has karaoke at night, does a decent burger for lunch, and also has a dance club attached for the real late night crowd.
Other activities for fun:
1) Walk out the back of our house, straight thru the back of the cul-de-sac, and through the back neighbor’s yard (please be respectful)... there is a huge boulder field behind the house, left from a glacier that moved through the area in the last ice age. This is pretty incredible.
2) Hickory Run State Park (near Valerio’s Pizza) has great day hikes, nature center, etc
3) There are lots of companies that offer horseback rides, whitewater rafting tours, etc. We leave some pamphlets in the kitchen to get you started...
4) The Pocono raceway is nearby (south on 115 past woody's) and offers opportunities to ride and drive race cars, but you ~definitely~ need to schedule that head of time... call (877) 786 2522.
5) There are outlets in Tannersville off I-80 (not far from camel beach).
6) There is an indoor-outdoor flea market in the center of Blakeslee (intersection of 940 and 115) that you may find some interesting items. The flea market is on weekends only.
We hope this gets you started and that you & your family have a fantastic stay in the poconos, wherever you may go.
