About Chris & Jean Pettinato

My husband and I have owned rental properties in the area for 11 years. We handle all rentals personally. We are very excited about expanding and opening a second house now in The Hideout. We love this area and all it has to offer for incredible vacations!

Chris & Jean Pettinato purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Chris & Jean Pettinato chose Lake Ariel

We loved this house because it has 2 levels. Each level is complete with its own kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedrooms. Perfect for vacationing with extended family or friends! How great it is to have enough room to find some quiet space to relax while still having plenty of room for 12 to sit down and enjoy a meal together! 2 kitchens are wonderful when vacationing with a larger group! Property is located in The Hideout and is close to all the amenities. Skiing or snow tubing, basket ball courts, beaches, and out door pool all less than 1 mile away,

What makes this chalet unique

The master bedroom on the main level has its own private deck. It is perfect to sit out and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or stay out late and stargaze. The oversize deck on the front of the house has seating for 12 and is great for barbecues or sunbathing. The fire place in the living room is just perfect to get cozy and watch a movie or enjoy a romantic night in front of the fire.This house has no stairs to enter the main level making it very easy for anyone who has ambulatory issues.

Nice family holiday!

  • 4 of 5

Our family group had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with plenty of table space for 10. We had a one year old in our group and the owners offered us the use of a high chair. The downstairs area was great for baby nap time. The adults came upstairs and the baby had a nice quiet place to nap. The owners very communicative and helpful.

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the PA Chalet and once again, we had a blast. The outside deck is low to the ground making it great for our family consisting of small children and older adults. The large table in the dining room made it easy to have family meals together. There are two levels in the house with a downstairs which has another kitchen, bathroom, living room, dining area, and 2 bedrooms. This was great and provided a quiet area for the baby to sleep in while the rest of the family gathered upstairs. The owners are always easily reachable and respond to any questions or issues quickly. The Hideout is a perfect family vacation with so much to do. You will not be disappointed if you stay at the PA Chalet!

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth vacation spent at the Hide Out and the best house I ever rented. We were a family of 10 including two 15 month old twins and there was plenty of room to spread out. The owners really keep this house clean and were only a phone call away if needed. Called to ask where we could get gas for grill and in less than 15 min. Chris arrived with a full tank. Will definitely rent this home again.
