The Pocono Mountain Vacation Properties Story
When you stay with Pocono Mountain Vacation Properties, you can expect clean and comfortable accommodations, detailed instructions and tips for your stay, rapid response in case you need assistance before or during your stay, and affordable prices. Our private rental properties accommodate everyone from couples to larger groups (up to 14 people). In most cases you can expect to pay less than you would for hotel accommodations.
Pocono Mountain Vacation Properties was borne from my simple desire to purchase a lake property where I could spend time away from the stresses of daily life with family and friends. (Those are my kids, Grace and Brendan, paddleboarding at Arrowhead Lake in the photo above). Hoping to find a home I could rent seasonally to help cover costs, I scoured the Poconos for months to find just the right spot. In late 2009, I finally settled on a two-bedroom cottage at Arrowhead Lake (now known as the “Tranquility Cottage”).
Three years later, having had so much success renting this property that there was rarely the opportunity to use the Tranquility Cottage for my own family, I purchased a second property at Arrowhead Lake (“Serenity Cottage”). Both properties now rent out more than 200 days per year.
In the meantime, a funny thing started happening in 2011: People began asking me to help them rent out their properties. I now manage 4 Arrowhead Lake homes (in addition to my own) as well as a townhouse at Big Boulder in Lake Harmony. A former writer/editor and digital marketing professional with real estate marketing experience, I now split my time between Northwest New Jersey and Arrowhead Lake.
An avid outdoorswoman, I have enjoyed exploring the area with my children and significant other. While I now spend most of my time tending to rental properties, when I do manage to escape for a day I am always astounded by the natural beauty of the Poconos region.
I truly love my new profession, helping travelers find clean, comfortable, and affordable accommodations in the Pocono Mountains. I have been pleasantly surprised by the graciousness of many of my guests, who often thank me for letting them stay at one of my properties. My response? Thank YOU for your support, which has allowed me to finally earn a living doing something I enjoy every day.
