While living and working in New York City, we started a search for a vacation house that would offer us an escape from the daily hustle and bustle. We knew we wanted someplace that was close enough so that we could get there quickly and yet far enough away so that NYC would feel like the other side of the world.
So in 2012, after a lot of searching, we decided on the community of Lake Naomi. It was an incredibly well established vacation community (over 50 years) located in the heart of the Poconos. Its location in the Poconos and the amazing amenities that Lake Naomi provides made our choice — a no brainer. We never knew such a place existed so close to home.
We looked at a lot of houses in Lake Naomi but didn’t seem to find that special something that we were looking for in our city getaway….until we came across Feels Like Heaven.
The house was incredibly unique. The true chalet look that Feels Like Heaven has makes you feel like you’re in the Alps, not the Poconos. The gigantic deck was the perfect place to spend evenings with family and friends, from spring through fall. The two huge stone wood burning fireplaces had the mountain retreat feel we were looking for… we were hooked. 🙂
After enjoying the house ourselves and sharing our mountain retreat with our friends and family, we decided to start renting the house to others so they could share the experience of staying in Feels Like Heaven.
The name Feels Like Heaven may sound cheesy to others, but when the time came to name our house, it was the best way of capturing what this house felt like to us.
Whenever we do any improvements in the house we always ask ourselves “Would that feel like heaven?” When the answer is yes, then we go ahead with the improvement.
Nothing that you find in Feels Like Heaven is an afterthought; everything that we put into the house needs to live up to the Feels Like Heaven name. Making our choices based on that question gives us the confidence to say that this is one of the best houses to rent in the Poconos and we’re happy to share it with you.
When we stay at Feels Like Heaven we usually end up just enjoying the house and relaxing, but Lake Naomi has A LOT of activities to offer.
3 lakes, 7 beaches, 3 heated pools (2 outdoor, 1 indoor), golfing, tennis, basketball, volleyball, kids camps and lots more! They really do a fantastic job of offering a top notch vacation experience.
One last note. While we’ve been offering our unique Poconos mountain chalet to our guests for quite a few years, you may also find us on VRBO Poconos Pines Pennsylvania and HomeAway Poconos Pines Pennsylvania.
