Ferncrest is a 4-bedroom mountaintop chalet with a game room. It is located in Lake Harmony Estates on the crest of the mountain. Although it is too heavily overgrown to walk through, our neighbor to the back is the Big Boulder ski facility. In the winter after the trees have shed their leaves you can see the lights of the ski trails behind us. Named Ferncrest after the abundance of ferns and the location on the crest of the mountain, Ferncrest is a favorite vacation destination for our family owing to it's true 4 season vacation qualities.

The house prominently features a large wrap around deck covered with an awning for shade making it my favorite place to eat breakfast and watch the various wildlife go about their day. We keep a BBQ grill with a stainless steel prep table of the deck along with a fire table. Propane for the BBQ and the fire table is provided. We call Ferncrest a Chalet because of the traditional A frame shape of the house and it's location in the woods near 2 ski resorts. The house is also part of Lake Harmony Estates so our family and our guests are entitled to use our 10 passes to the beach, the picnic area and the parking facilities lakeside at the base of Wood Street and the tennis court. The beach is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Ferncrest is in walking distance of the beach facility and tennis court being less than a quarter mile away.

Key among the features of the house is our livingroom fireplace, backyard fire pit and our deck fire table. Whether you like to relax on the couch in front of a cozy fire, huddle around a fire pit making Smores or relax on the deck around the fire table with cocktails. We have all scenarios covered. My favorite is the Smores as I am kid at heart. The home is located in Lake Harmony Estates. Rental includes 10 beach passes. The lake is great for canoes, kayaks and tubes and there are 2 businesses where you can rent boats and other water sports gear.

To make room for our gameroom we renovated our garage into a combination bedroom and gameroom. In the gameroom we have a 65" smart TV with a subscription to YouTube TV. You Tube TV is a terrific internet streaming service that provides local channels, cable channels, free streaming channels and paid streaming channels. We also have a poker table and 8 chairs and a professional foosball table. When not in use as a game room we have a queensize murphy bed that folds down to allow for very comfortable sleeping. This room is not attached to the house so you need to come into the house to use the bathroom.

Meet The Host

Our Pocono Vacation Rentals is a small family run company with the goal of providing an amazing relaxing mountain vacation experience. We want to provide what we look for when we are vacationing. Clean and affordable with all the amenities you need on vacation. We love the Poconos and I have been coming to the Lake Harmony area since I was a little child. Our houses are big enough (4 and 5 bedrooms) for a family or groups of friends to vacation together but small enough to still get the mountain cabin experience. My son Russ and I look forward to hosting your vacation.
