Why Barry Katz chose Lake Harmony
This is a modern well kept house. I purchased it in May 2017, but I own 4 other properties listed on VRBO that each have from over 50 to over 70 five star reviews. My wife and I are very hands on and we have a full time person that helps to take care of our houses. You will not be disappointed if you rent this spectacular house.
What makes this House unique
Located at the Big Boulder ski resort with access to Big Boulder lake and outdoor heated swimming pool and club. Walking distance to ski slopes. Indoor hot tub in sun room. Pool table, foosball, dart board, plenty of space for everything you want to do. Views are amazing for you to just sit back and relax and enjoy the 7 flat screen tvs.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Terrific family reunion at Big Boulder Lake in 2 houses
This is one of the 2 houses owned by Barry that we rented for a family reunion of 11 adults, 6 young kids and 1 newborn. The houses were well configured and located almost next to each other and a close drive to the beach. The Boulder Lake Club was a must for our family as the kids really enjoyed the beach and pool. The food was good at the convenient Boulder View Tavern on the beach, and the area was just over an hour from our family's favorite amusement park, Knoebel's. The adults enjoyed a short drive to Jim Thorpe on a rainy day. The house was well supplied, and Barry was exceptionally responsive in our communications. I know our kids and grandkids would love to return to this beach community next summer.
Beautiful home that fits a crowd!
We came to this home in early May with a group of friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. The house had plenty of bedrooms and beds, bathrooms and open space to hang out. Plus that hot tub! The kitchen was well stocked with the basics but if you need casserole dishes bring those as well as all paper goods etc. Barry let us know tris in advance so we were good to go! Also recommend bringing Saran Wrap, foil etc if you need to!
The house had a few very nice TVs, comfortable beds (love the double bunk bed), a porch with large grill, two refrigerators (beer fridge!) and a game room!!
The neighborhoos was great and right next to boulder lake - we could see the slopes from our window. What a gorgeous area.
The owner was extremely communicative and gave straight forward clear directions. No issues at all and i appreciated his positive and kind tone throughout the process. Hope to be back and would recommend this home to anyone!!
We appreciate all the positive comments in the review and look forward to hosting Hillary again. We were disappointed with only 4 stars considering all the positive comments, but most people view 4 stars as very positive. However, we strive for 5 stars each and every time.
Unfortunately, Hillary did not tell me about the few minor issues she raised until after she left. We supply glass Pyrex baking dishes and sponges. However, sometimes guests will break or burn things and throw them out and we cannot do an inventory of everything each time. We do have a storage facility in the area where we keep extras of these things, and someone that usually can deliver them. Also, if a guest is missing a kitchen item that they need, and we cannot deliver it for some reason, our standard practice is to tell them to buy it when they are out shopping and we will reimburse them. We also supply one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom and a roll of paper towels.
We’ll definitely be back!
This house is fantastic with plenty of room and it’s right across the street from Jack Frost Big Boulder! We had a blast two years in a row and we’ll definitely be back!
Great Mountain house
We stayed at this lovely home for a 3-day ski vacation with 8 adults and 2 children. It was a great layout with a big family room and wood fireplace; the hot tub was off the kitchen in a large, comfortable porch/room which was great for the kids as you could still watch them while you made dinner! The rooms were nice and big with plenty of space and beds were also very comfortable! Game room in first floor/basement was nice to hang out in as well! Being so close to Big Boulder was also a big plus. We skied at Jack Frost for first part of day then went to Big Boulder for night skiing so got plenty of skiing in! The property owner, Barry, was so accommodating. We actually had to change houses from our original booking due to frozen pipes and he was great to work with to make sure we got into a property that we were happy with! Cannot say enough about Barry! :) We did not end up using the grill as it seemed a bit low on gas and we did not want to take time to get it filled up but Barry has it so you just have to go to a local merchant and get it filled up on his account. Had all the necessities to cook with which made everything easy! We will definitely come back maybe for a summer vacation as the area is beautiful and there is lots to do in the area! Thanks again Barry! Best, The Erickson family
Nice family experience. Barry is an accommodating host.
Great getaway house for entire family!
We wanted to get all our adult children and their significant other together for a weekend at Lake Harmony, to catch-up on each of our busy lives. It was all that and more! Great weekend and the house was awesome! Large area, hot tub in sun room, game room and nice bedrooms. So close to Big Boulder, had a blast tubing, dinner at shenanigans, everywhere we went was so close.
Can’t say enough about the owner, Barry. Always accommodating and made the experience a great time, we will definitely come back. Just what our family needed!
