Overview

About the property

Beautiful 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom Lakefront property, with 200 feet of shoreline

Retreat to the natural beauty of the Poconos Mountains with this lakefront property.  Located in the desirable Arrowhead Lake Community, this 2-level vacation rental offers a private retreat with all the amenities.  With 200 feet of lakeside property, guests can take in the stunning views or venture out on  Arrowhead Lake on a kayak,  canoe, or paddle board (all included with rental).

Breathe in the fresh air of the mountains at this Poconos rental. Located on a large lot in the Arrowhead Lake Community, this 2-level lakefront property offers a quiet retreat with tons of amenities.

Enjoy stunning lake views from almost every room in the house. We encourage you to open the windows to let in that fresh mountain air. You’ll catch the scents of the water and the various trees around the property, encouraging you to linger and enjoy a slower pace during your stay. In the evening, relax near the wood fireplace or outdoor fire pit, and reminisce about your day.

With fresh renovations in the kitchen and bathrooms, you’ll be pampered with the best! The full kitchen boasts granite counter-tops and new cabinets, plus a 70-inch picture window with tremendous views of the lake you just won’t be able to get enough of. Imagine lingering over breakfast here with your family as you watch the sunrise together. Perfect!

Plus, all of the bathrooms are new or have been completely redone. The master bathroom has a double shower with a built-in seat. Each bathroom on the upper level has heated floor tiles to keep your feet nice and warm. In fact, all tiled and hardwood floors have radiant heat.

This vacation home is perfect for any family or group. Up to 14 people can sleep here. Each bedroom has been decorated in its own style, and all of the beds feature Memory Foam mattresses (even the sleeper sofa), so you’ll all get a great night’s sleep!

Private Master Suite – King size bed, top level, lake view

Family Suite – King size and double size beds, main level, wooded view

Queen Bedroom – top level, lake view

Queen Bedroom – top level, wooded view

Double Bedroom – top level, wooded view

Queen Sleeper Sofa – lower level, lake view

Visit the lower level to discover a multitude of entertainment options for those afternoons or nights you choose to relax indoors: ping pong, movies, TV, and more. But don’t feel like you’ll be closed off here; you still have great views, plus an entry door right off the lake.

Enjoy the Outdoors

With this lakefront property, it will be hard to stay inside, though. With a large, double lot property, there’s a great grassy yard for you to play on. Outside, you can see across the entire lake. You can find shade and sun on the property. Every evening brings a stunning and unique sunset. Two kayaks, a canoe, and a paddle board are included with the rental for you to get out on the lake.

Did you know that the best fishing on the lake in all seasons is right out back off your private dock? Bring your fishing gear and get ready to catch some big ones to brag about when you get back home. And when the lake is frozen sufficiently, you can go ice skating.

The deck out back offers you the perfect place to sit and stare at the stars, or even the fireworks from the Island Pool. You’ll be able to see some wildlife from here, including hummingbirds that visit our deck-mounted feeder. Sip on an iced tea during the afternoon, play board games with the gang, or get lost in a good book. The possibilities are endless!

In the evenings, you can relax and sit by the fire pit and roast some delicious marshmallows for a sweet and gooey end-of-the-day treat.

Explore the Community

Arrowhead is a private community with 3 heated swimming pools and 4 separate beaches. It also boasts a ton of other amenities, including tennis courts, volleyball, bocce ball, and a new lodge with a fitness center, billiard room, banquet room, and library. The lodge is also Wi-Fi accessible, so feel free to bring your laptop or mobile device with you.

Guests can picnic throughout the Arrowhead Lake Community. Tables and grills are provided; just bring the charcoal! Plus, there are some great wildlife to discover: whitetail deer, turkeys, chipmunks, bear, turtles, foxes, owls, woodpeckers, and more.

It’s a 1-minute walk from the vacation rental to get to the closest beach and playground. Visit two beaches or the lodge with a short trip on the kayak or canoe.

Great spot, beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spot on Arrowhead Lake. Easy to use kayaks and paddle board. House was very clean, super comfortable and we truly had a wonderful weekend there. The only negatives I would say had nothing to do with the house- only regarding the lake association fees- they really added up! Otherwise we would definitely come back to this house!

Perfect Lake Front Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation, your house exceeded all of our expectations. Beautifully decorated, walls, the master bedroom was over the top, the view amazing. We had everything we needed, blanket, pillows, hand soap, dish detergent, washing powder, fabric softener and more. We had a few rainy days so the ping pong table in the heated garage was awesome. At night sitting by the lake with all the lights was a breath-taking view. Thank you for the use of your canoe and kayaks. We will be booking next year also.

Thank you,

Jim, and Lisa McKnight

Amazing Weekend Getaway Right by the Lake!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the first weekend of April 2018 and it was amazing! Anyone who knows me, knows I can't just stay anywhere and I was truly happy at my stay. Lake is directly in the backyard and is very beautiful to watch the sunset. The house is in a gated community which makes it very safe. As we arrived, we loved how modern the rooms and furniture were and the house was very clean and smelled refreshing in each room. All beds were very comfortable and clean. To the point, that my husband wants us to upgrade to the same mattress in our own home. House comes with all the necessities and a very nice surround sound music system. The family is already planning another stay in the summer. We definitely want to rent again! Thank you Jim and Lisa!!
