About Chris & Shelby Clayton

My husband and I are from Southern New Jersey. Even though we are close to the 'Jersey Shore', the crowds were never our speed. We have 3 wonderful children (22,19 & 17) and have raised them to enjoy the serenity of boating and other activities on this beautiful fresh water lake.

Chris & Shelby Clayton purchased this house in 2012

Why Chris & Shelby Clayton chose Lake Ariel

After vacationing for years at Lake Wallenpaupack, we knew this is where we wanted to retire. We are not quite at the retirement point but we will live here full time one day!

We hope to share our home with our children and their families for years to come.

What makes this house unique

We searched for homes here at the Lake for a quite a while. When we walked into this home and saw such a beautiful open floor plan, with big windows and natural lighting, we knew this was the one for us. The abundant bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, were just icing on the cake. The large parking area certainly makes having family,friends and the boat at the house, a breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop you an email and thank you for a great weekend at your home. You have a beautiful home and it had everything we needed for an enjoyable visit. We had a great time and we look forward to planning our next visit. Thank you again !!!!

Full House

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at the Clayton's home and had such a wonderful time. When I say my family there was a lot of and sisters and dad and significant others and some children.. we filled the house. With that being said there was plenty of room for all of us without being on top of one another. The downstairs game room was perfect for the kids....and the adults as we spent many late nights down there playing Wii. When we weren't downstairs playing Wii we were all sitting around the fire pit. The house has the best location in Indian Rocks as you cant get any closer to the pool. When many people have to drive to the pool we just walked out the door and across the street and at the pool.....very convenient. The beach and access to the lake are just a few minute drive and there is a little restaurant that we were able to walk to from the house...located at the entrance of Indian Rocks. The Clayton's home is clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The pictures do not do the house justice. I would recommend this property to all friends and relatives. On top of a great home, Shelby is just a wonderful person and so easy to set things up with and answered every questions I had. We have already booked our winter vacation and plan on vacationing there again next summer. Shelby thank you!!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations were clean and comfortable. House was well stocked with everything we needed. Lots of space indoors and out to relax and enjoy the Pocono weather. Distance to the pool made it an easy respite. We enjoyed the kayaks and had good success fishing.

There is plenty to do and plenty of comfortable space if you just want to lay back and relax. We will be back.

We all really enjoyed it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described in the ad. It was very clean and was in a great location. It was stocked well and the items were all in good condition. Often times when you rent a house it has mismatched kitchen stuff and many things that you really can't use. For example pots that have been abused or broken appliances. I was very happy with this house. Everything was in working order and was in great shape. I usually bring so much of my own stuff with me and I really didn't need that this year. We all enjoyed the pool and playground and even played tennis.We brought our boat and used the boat slip and enjoyed the lake. The kids loved the family of deer that visited each night as well. Overall it was a wonderful time and we would definitely come back again. Thank you very much!

Great house for a great price

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Black Bear Lodge went off without a hitch. It was cozy and comfortable for our group: 4 adults, 5 kids, and one dog. The neighborhood is super quiet and low key. The pool, which was never crowded, was literally steps from our door. The layout of the house is open and inviting. The owners were a pleasure to deal with.

One suggestion I would make is maybe a few more cooking utensils in the kitchen (i.e. rubber spatula, wooden spoon). Otherwise it had everything we needed.

Thank you Chris & Shelby!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We will have to take a look at the cooking utensil supplies when we are there in a few weeks. Unfortuntely things sometimes get misplaced. Thank you for letting us know we will certainly take a look and add more as needed. We hope to see you again soon. Shelby & Chris
