Lake Information: The home is on Deerfield Lake in the Hideout Ammenity filled community. Deerfield Lake is reserved for non powered crafts. There are 2 paddle boats and a canoe included with the property and can be launched from your own private dock. The water is good quality and you can swim in Deerfield lake at your discretion. Most swimmers go to either of the 2 pools or 2 community beaches located on Roamingwood Lake about 5 blocks away. There are many fish in all the lakes. Large mouth bass for the serious angler and plenty of easy to catch Sunny's for the kids. Also, inside the Hideout is Roamingwood Lake which is for power boats and is accessible as an ammenity. Nearby is the 60,000 acre Lake WallenPauPack. There are many amenities, restaurants and boat rental venues on this lake. You can also find information by doing Google Search for nearby Lake Wallenpaupack.

Advice to Prospective Renters in this Area: This home is a vacation home and is rented by the owners only a few weeks each year. We have invested over $60k in the home since purchasing it in 2004. It is a nice place to spend your vacation and the fact that all levels look out on the lake ensure that every moment feels like a vacation. In this region there are homes which are offerred as rentals which a) are constant rental properties and are subject to wear and tear associated b) have not been updated since the 70's or c) have enclosed layouts which some could find confining. Make sure you ask these questions and understand the condition of the homes you consider. Vacation time is valuable so it is best to ensure the property you are renting is going to ensure a good time.

Amenity Fees Explained: The home is in a private gated community named The Hideout. The community has over 30 major amenities. The community charges renters and owners an amenity fee which supports the amenities, security and provides each rental group with a welcome package upon arrival to ensure a smooth entrance to the facility. The Hideout fee as of 2009 is $90 per 3 day weekend and $115 per week per rental (not per renter). In many ways renters typically recoup this cost by taking advantage of the many free amenities (beaches, outdoor tennis) as well as cost subsidized fee amenities. (ie. round of golf is about $17 versus $40 outside the community) The owners have made arrangement with the community to expedite the registration process in advance so you are ready to go when you arrive. The amenity fee is in addition to the rental fee and is a pure pass thru to the association. More information on the community can be found on www.hideoutassoc.com

We purchased the home as our personal vacation home in 2004. We invested over 75k in updates and expansion. We use this home when you are not using it, so its not a 'beater' rental. We have had success renting it, so others can enjoy when we have to work. We have never had an unresolved dispute with a renter and work to ensure that you have a nice stay and that damage deposits are returned promptly.

James purchased this house in 2004

Its the closest to the Lake and views from every level make it enjoyable. You feel like you are on vacation all the time, even while making dinner or watching TV. Just lift your head, see the sun sparkle off the water and exhale your stress away.

Views, ability to hold 3 sub parties within your group on 3 separate levels so that you have privacy and your own full bath from each other.

Screened in porch with BBQ, allows for grilling/views while protected outside dining table for enjoyment.

Kids can easily catch Sunnies from dock with simple pole and grub worm. Great picture moment and they never fail to bite.

Blueberry tree in summer can add healthy freshness to your morning cereal.

EXCELLENT VIEWS AND UPDATED HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The house is situated so close to the lake that it brings the lake into the home on every level. Being on the lake was a big difference versus past experiences. It makes even your "get ready", eating and downtime seem relaxing. The house was recently renovated and it was evident in the bathrooms and kitchens. Previouse rentals were dated, old or lacking. House, had internet access though we did not use.

GREAT LAKEFRONT WITH AWESOME VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
The home was so close to the lake and had such great views from every level that we felt like we were in paradise every minute of our vacation. The home was very private as the neighbors were set back from us and we never saw them. Having Wi-Fi access was a plus, as we were able to stay in touch with family, work and also get information on all the great things to do. We found the community website also helpful, as there is a lot to do in this gated community. 2 community beaches and 2 pools supplemented our time interacting with the lake that was right in front of us. The kids caught a ton of fish, with simple poles and grub worms. That made the vacation for them and was easy for us as they seemed to jump on the hook every time. The owner pre- arranged our community badges and they were waiting at the gate. They were well worth it as we made the $90 one time badge fee back easily by using just a few amenities in the community. Best part was picking blueberries from the bush by our own dock and putting them on our cereal.

NY EVE WAS WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the NY holiday and had a great time. The wood fireplace was a great feature and the property was stacked with plenty of pre-cut firewood at no expense. Of course the home was fully heated systematically as well. The ski hill was a few blocks away and the prices were great for our party, which included kids and newer skiers. We went ice skating and roasted marshmallows. All while watching wildlife interact with the lake, which is visible from ever room. Owner was a pleasure to deal with and made the process simple, even providing 3 pages of personal information about the area, things to do etc. Great place for all seasons. Received our refund deposit in full and on time.

NOT QUITE AS EXPECTED

  • 1 of 5
The house is nice, well-maintained and clean, however it is a little small for a 4 bedroom house. You probably will need a 4x4 to enter the property as there is a steep incline down from the main road. The house is also surrounded by a pebble-rock pathway which is not pictured that goes almost all the way to the lake. We had a 1-year old with us that is just learning how to walk and we didn't think it was safe for her to walk on that pathway. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our stay. The owner was not sympatetic to our concerns. He refused to give us a full refund and still hasn't given back our security deposit. I would not recommend this house for families with toddlers. I think this house is more suitable for singles or families with older kids. And I would suggest asking the owner for a clear cancellation policy before signing the rental agreement.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the reviewer’s comments regarding the home being “nice, clean and well-maintained”. This home is our personal vacation home which we rent a limited number of weeks per year. We have invested over $75,000 in renovations since purchasing it. We have rented it on HomeAway since 2004 to couples and families alike with not a single complaint. We ourselves have 3 children, several of which we have raised in this home from infancy.

The home is nearly 2,000 square feet on 3 separate levels, each level with sleeping accommodations and full bath (3 total) which allows renters to maintain some privacy between couples, etc. for maximum comfort. There are 3 Queens and 2 singles plus some pull out couches and is ideal for parties of 10 or less.

This is a lakefront home and like many lakefronts it is elevated above the lake and below the street. This ensures that the lake stays outside and not in your living room ? It is unique in its’ overall proximity to the lake which provides exceptional views and privacy from other homes. While many families and couples have rented comfortably from us for years and we remain comfortable with our young children at the home, this home may not be best suited for parents of very small children who do not own a playpen and do not plan to closely watch and monitor their toddlers.

The confirmation letter sent to all renters prior to them sending funds clearly states that rentals are non-refundable and not cancellable due to the perishable nature of vacation time. Despite this policy, given ample notice, we have always voluntarily sought to seek alternate dates or relist the property to accommodate renters who run into unexpected scheduling problems. However, renters should assume that they are committed to the rental period and we have no obligation to do so. In this reviewer’s case, the party did not attempt to cancel until the midst of their stay at the home, making any accommodation impossible. We have a long history of quickly returning the reservation\damage deposits of all our renters and have fully communicated the process to this renter.

We are happy to openly and transparently discuss the property details with all renters to help determine if it is the best fit for your family. Please call 646-843 0462 x2.

FUN AND RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We shared this lovely lakeside house with another couple last August and had a great time. It was small enough to be comfortable yet big enough so that we had our privacy, too. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake while relaxing and sipping cocktails on the deck. We also had fun on the lake with the paddleboats and canoe. We hope to return again soon!
