When staying at the house we spend most of our time out on the deck with our coffee in morning hours and a glass of wine in the evening hours watching and feeding the deer. It's truly wonderful!

In the summertime, Whitewater rafting and Mountain Biking along the Lehigh River/Gorge is great fun. Horseback riding or Paintball is also close-by for the more adventurous. Hickory Run State Park offers many different hiking trails for every member of the group. Nearby Camelback has the most amazing water park for endless water fun.

Other recreational facilities in the community include: A baseball field, a basketball court, volleyball beach courts, shuffleboard, boccie ball, playground, and picnic areas.

In the fall, the Pocono Mountain foliage is unlike anything your see anywhere. The colors are never ending!

Did not want to leave your house!! We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at your home and can't wait to come back again next year. Thanks again for your hospitality!! Your home was very clean and cozy. And what I nice most is we could have a quiet day at the lake, or head out and do one of the many activities around you. Hiking was the best,,,,the views were amazing. Thanks again!

GREAT VACATION HOUSE AND AREA.

  • 5 of 5
Thanks so much for all your help. We had a wonderful time in the Poconos. The house was wonderful and like I said on the phone, it felt like home. We especially liked the two separate areas for entertaining. The kids were in one area and the adults in another. My mother wants to know where you bought the mattress in the downstairs bedroom because she never slept so sound. We will be in touch for next year - thanks again.

WONDERFUL LOCATION! GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We had family travel from Texas to meet us in this winter wonderland! They had never played in the snow and they had the best weekend! The house was perfect for two families with kids. There was room for everyone and playroom loft could not have been better. The kids hung out and loved their own "space". The owners were helpful from beginning to end (which lasted a little longer because my son left his nintendo ds. Lucinda FOUND IT after much searching and mailed back to us. He was thrilled) . The house was more than comfortable ,the neighborhood was perfect and it's close to everything from restaurants to great skiing. Thanks for the wonderful vacation!

Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your mountain retreat with our family. We've been coming to the mountains for 20 years now and I have to say...your home was the nicest!

"LIFE IS SOOO MUCH BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS."

"Life is sooo much better in the mountains."
  • 5 of 5
Hi Lucinda,

I received my deposit refund today, thank you. "Life is sooo much better in the mountains." Carl and I had such a wonderful time at your home. It was cozy, perfect and we appreciated all the ammenities. When Carl's sister called from Delaware County to see how we were handling the extreme heat, we told her that we were sleeping with a quilt.

I read two books, rested, enjoyed your screened in porch, and loved the lakes and the deers. I only wish that my children would have been able to visit, because I know they would have enjoyed it too. Maybe next time.

Next summer I would like to reserve the last two weeks in July. Could I send you a deposit to hold those weeks?

Thank you again,
Barbara

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Hi Lucinda

We had so much fun in the Poconos. Your house is so charming and the kids really liked the bunkbed room. The upstairs loft with entertainment area and games was also a big hit with the little and big ones! We went horseback riding and spent the day at Camelbeach (highly recommend this!). The kids loved the lake and playground, and we were there almost every day.
We had some four-legged friends visit us every day - the kids loved feeding the deer and turkeys. They couldnt way to see them.
Thanks again for being so kind through the whole process - we will be back next year!
