Great property for a big group

  • 4 of 5
I had a large (~12 adults) family reunion at this house. We had a great time on the property. There are plenty of bedrooms and lots of space for sitting and laughing both indoors and out. I really liked the screen porch on the side of the house. Also, it was great to have a ping-pong table in the basement - we got a lot of use out of that.

Also, the property was isolated enough that it felt private, but it was still easy to get everywhere within the community.

The Big Bass Lake security guards were a little too serious for my taste during the check-in portion of our stay, but after check-in we didn't hear anything from them again, so it was not the issue that I thought it would be.

In addition, the owners were very easy to work with and accommodating to my requests (I travel frequently for work so didn't have easy access to an international fax machine, for example).

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have been to the Poconos many times, nothing like this house, it has everything you need. We definitely recommended, the house is perfect for a family vacation. With a lot to do while you are there. Sad that next year we may not use it, because it will be more people some family member stay behind on this one.

I rent this house with my friends every year and we love going there. It is spacious, has nice porch with the lake view and hot tub, pool and ping pong table in the basement and sauna.
Easy to deal with the owners.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had 4 families get together for a long over due reunion. We couldn't have asked for a better spot. The house was spacious, immaculate, comfortable & cozy. The kids had their own floor for recreation, we barely knew they were there. Plenty of seating, kitchen fully stocked. Jacuzzi, sauna, hot tub, pool table, ping pong. We never needed to leave the house. There were instructions posted for any emergencies, the owners were easily accessible for questions and we've already booked for next year.

Map

Our house is located in a gated community that has three lakes, two pools, tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds and two rec centers with game rooms, snack bars, and a small ski slope. Within twenty minutes, you can find a variety of fun things to do for all ages depending on the season.

Skiing, tubing and ice skating at several ski areas, including Camelback, and holiday shopping at the Crossings Outlet make great winter fun. Camelback turns into a water park in the summer. Whitewater rafting, kayaking and boating can all be done nearby. The autumn brings the beautiful changing of the leaves, along with hay rides, horseback riding, pumpkin and apple picking and the annual balloon festival. For the spring, there is fishing and hiking and over 20 golf courses to choose from.
