The SpaceOur home is in exclusive Lake Naomi. We are a 2 level, 3 bedroom contemporary but rustic house with 2 bathrooms, one of a with a candle-lit soaking tub. The house includes all the linens necessary for your stay and a fully equipped kitchen. We also provide a minimal amount of fresh towels. All you have to do is bring your favorite foods and toiletries. We also have an extra room, our loft which has a flat screen TV and is a great family room to gather. We offer game-cube (with cartridges) and a DVD player. Our home sits far back from the road and is very quiet. Our home is very quiet as we back up to Deer Trail Park. It's simply woods that go on for miles. It's a block from Deer Trail Lake (our favorite lake) and 3 blocks from Lake Naomi's West Beach. Our row boat and 2 junior kayaks comes with the rental and sits on West Beach. Life jackets are in the closet. Feel free to enjoy all of it when you stay at Swept Away!
We are 2.5 blocks from the Lake Naomi's beautiful Logan Steele Community Center, meaning, you can safely walk there on a newly built path directly across the street from our home. The community center is an 11 million dollar facility. 48,000 square feet, it features an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna, state of the art fitness center and aerobic studio, arcade, cafe, senior citizens recreation, fire place, two indoor tennis courts, indoor basketball court, outdoor paddle tennis court and an outdoor pavilion! The center has wireless internet access. The Lake Naomi Club is private, however you have full access to all the facilities as our guests if you choose to purchase a Temporary Membership. Using the amenities are optional, however you can't use amenities or lakes without them. Many of our vacationing families opt out of purchasing the TM and rather take advantage of the many activities the Poconos has to offer. Many change their mind once they are there. It's entirely up to you. The process is seamless.

In summer if you are interested in more then 1 week, just ask for pricing for Temporary Membership. The fee covers a family (or group) 2 parents, 6 children.
