Are you looking for a year-round Poconos hideaway?

This home is located on the shore of the largest of The Hideout’s three lakes, the 198-acre Roamingwood Lake. It is also directly across Lakewood Court from the Tiki Bar, one of the many restaurants offered by The Hideout and one of the Hideout beaches. And the ski resort and the lodge are not far either.
All of this means you’ll be seated well no matter when you choose to go on vacation if you make this home your own. And when you consider all that the house itself has to offer, you’ll look even prettier.
The house consists of a three-story main structure with a two-story side wing attached to it. The front door, in the side wing, takes you into the main kitchen and casual dining area.
This sky-lit space also boasts a gas fireplace and a wall of windows overlooking the side yard and the lake.
The kitchen has ample storage space, a wine rack and a peninsula with bar seating.
It also features true professional-grade appliances: a Viking fridge-freezer and a Garland professional range with four burners, two ovens, grill, griddle and salamander.
Beyond this space you will find a guest bedroom, the dining room and the living room. These three spaces have access to the lower deck. The dining room and the living room are one, and the living room has a wood fireplace.
The same goes for the master bedroom, one floor up. One of the two master bedrooms in this home, it features a wood-burning fireplace and its own wet bar.
It also has its own private terrace. Like the one below and the downstairs patio, it overlooks the backyard and steps down to your own private dock.
His bathroom – and all the others in this contemporary Lake Ariel home for sale, while I’m at it – is very sleek and well-equipped. This bathroom has a bathtub with a rain shower head, a high-end toilet and a separate bidet. (The bathroom in the second master suite and the bathroom on the lower level have decorative stained glass windows.)
Also on the top floor is a side room that can be used as a child’s bedroom and a home office overlooking the entrance forecourt.
Beneath the ground floor, the ground floor contains a den with yet another wood-burning fireplace next to the patio. The lower level also contains a bonus room, a wine cellar and a fourth bedroom and bathroom. A boudoir and a full bathroom are located in the finished basement, one floor lower.
Steps lead down the sloping back yard from the patio to the boat dock. You will notice that the dock is surrounded by another large deck, which allows guests to be entertained right on the water. (You can even serve food, though it would be a bit difficult to bring it from the grill to the lakeside terrace.)
The second master bedroom is located on the ground floor of the side wing. Stairs from the hall lead to an in-law/guest suite consisting of a bedroom with sitting area and fireplace and a second full kitchen. The in-laws suite also has its own separate entrance from the forecourt.
All of these features and amenities make this contemporary Lake Ariel home for sale the perfect year-round hideaway for anyone (a) has a large family (b) likes to invite guests over to spend time with them (c) likes live big, period.
