I was a little nervous because I found the house online and rented sight unseen. Luckily, it all worked out great! 4 families rented this wonderful home for a week and we were all so very pleased. Kids ranging from 3-12 spent most of the time hanging out on the lower level in their own space: they loved the the bunk bed room, playing air hockey and shooting pool. The adults spent most of their time on the deck or in the hot tub. We made a fire in the pit a few times and we looked forward to feeding the deer twice a day. There are two fireplaces but we didn't bother. I'm sure if it had been cooler weather we would have had them both going.
Although we drove to the lake with the kids, the walk to the lake is approximately 15 minutes long. The roads are great for bike riding. Split Rock water park is a mere 5 minute ride. The lake itself was wonderful! We brought rafts and inner tubes with us. The kids loved it. The shore is a little rocky near the edge but once you walk a few feet out it's fine.
We had a wonderful experience with this rental and the owners had a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us on the dining room table when we arrived. It was perfect for a group our size. We would definitely rent here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a Pocono vacation.
