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!
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!
We just loved staying at this house and the owners were so very nice. The location was great...close to restaurants and activities for the family. Our family spent one day at Split Rock Water park and another horse back riding. The lake was right down the road with a snack bar, grills for barbecuing, and a playground for the kids. The house was perfect and was comfy. We especially loved having dinner on the outside porch. We really had a great time. See you again next year!!
Thanks Lucinda for all your help. We had a great weekend. Really liked the location to attractions and restaurants. The house was very clean and comfortable for the gang. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. See you next year!
Thanks so much for accommodating our family. Your house was really clean and comfortable. We loved how close you were to the ski resorts and good restaurants. One of the perks in your house was the loft area with games and foosball table. The kids were up there every night! We will back again next year!
We had a great time at your house. It was very comfortable and super clean. We also liked how close your house was to the ski resorts. We were able to come home for lunch each day, then head back to the mountain. Thanks again for sharing your house!
Had a great time at your cozy Pocono house. Amenities were great and we loved sitting by the fire every night. We cooked one night and grilled the other. We found your home to be very comfortable and in a prime location. Also loved that your home was in a quiet area. Thanks again for your hospitality!!
