This was a fabulous spot for our family of 4. Each kid had their own bedroom, as did Mom & Dad. We had everything we needed except food, clothing, and personal toiletries, just as advertised. The location was within walking distance to the beach for swimming and boating. We were able to rent a canoe from the community association for a nominal fee and had assistance from the lifeguards who were on the beach in getting ready to go out on the water. We didn't even need the community association's life jackets since the cabin had them available to us. When we arrived, we found a clean cabin and written directions on the counter to the nearest grocery store so that we could purchase the food we needed. When we called the owner on our last morning to let her know we were checking out, we told her that we expect we will probably book here again when we go back to the area for another stay. We spent one day enjoying relaxing on the porch, swimming at the beach, playing mini-golf at Gouldsboro's Fun Station, grilling and eating on the porch, and snuggling to watch a DVD (provided by the owner). We spent the second day travelling to Bushkill Falls and to Lakota Wolf Preserve (in Columbia, NJ). Both of these stops were within an hour of the cabin. On our third day, we travelled less than 45 minutes to get to some of the Pocono's famous shopping locations including House of Candles, Callie's Candy Kitchen, and Holley Ross Pottery. On the way back from these stops, we visited Comet Books in Gouldsboro - a science fiction, rare book, comic book, and pulp fiction bookstore. Sunday morning, we travelled a short distance to Tobyhanna UMC for worship. After church, we dined at Cook's Corner.
Views of wildlife could be found just outside the cabin, where we saw a doe grazing just a few feet from the driveway. And, we saw a mother hen turkey and her young crossing the road just a few hundred yards from the entrance to the community.
Flex scheduling and packing light was a huge selling point to us. We were extremely appreciative of not needing to book a full week like many other places required. And, if we had needed to bring kitchen items, we would not had enough room in the car. The owner quickly responded to our request for info and was pleasant to speak with on the phone during the reservation, check-in, and check-out processes.
