The property was neat and clean and just as described in the listing. There were four of us who stayed along with our dog who had a great time on her walks in the quiet gated community! There was plenty of room for us all and we enjoyed spending most nights at home near the fire. When we did want to go out we were provided with a book of the owners favorite places which was very helpful not knowing the area! We also enjoyed how close of a drive Jack Frost was for skiing. I would recommend this place!
Our family really enjoyed our stay in this Getaway Chalet. The owner Dominic and Nancy were very welcoming, providing recommendations to make our vacation more enjoyable. The house is very nice and clean. Kitchen is fully equipped to cook and eat at home, and its important with kids. House is conveniently located in the community. Walking distance to the beach, to get to the pools we usually used bikes. There are three different pools and the one of them with a beautiful view on a lake and kiddie pool, rental boats and kayaks. Community is close to different attractions and shopping areas.
Would glad to recommend this house to a friend and looking forward to spend another vacation here.
My girlfriend and I were looking for a quiet weekend where we could just kick back and relax. We found exactly what we were looking for at the Getaway Chalet.
The cabin is absolutely beautiful with all the amenities you would need to feel right at home. The first thing we always worry about when sleeping out is the cleanliness of the place. Make no mistake when I tell you that the Getaway Chalet was absolutely spotless. You feel right at home the minute you walk through the doors.
We enjoyed the full kitchen the first night of our stay which included the use of the stove, oven, and refrigerator. Having all the appliances and cooking options helped us save money from having to go out and eat. All the utensils and cookware were clean and everything was easily accessible. After dinner and drinks, my girlfriend and I enjoyed the downstairs living room watching our favorite shows on the cable supplied TV. One feature of the Getaway Chalet that made our stay even more enjoyable was the heat option in each room. Every room had a thermostat that heated the area perfectly and within minutes. It made for a very relaxing and comfortable night's sleep.
The grounds surrounding the Getaway Chalet were nothing short of beautiful. With a light snow that had fallen the night before it made the scenery absolutely breathtaking. The pictures supplied on the renter's page do not do this place justice. We took several walks around the area which was very peaceful and quiet. It really felt as if we were tucked in the woods with acres and acres to ourselves.
Although we were absolutely thrilled with our stay, what really put it over the top was Dominic's communication all throughout. From the time we first contacted Dominic inquiring about the Chalet to him checking in throughout the weekend to ensure we were comfortable, you could really get the feel that he and his wife, Nancy genuinely took pride in their home and truly cared about our stay. Their "Welcoming Binder" made it easy for us to locate stores, activities, and adventures.
During the weekend of the 8th, our goal was to be relaxed and just have some time to ourselves without the daily stresses that come our way. The Getaway Chalet certainly did not disappoint. We look forward to our next visit which undoubtedly will come sooner rather than later. To anyone looking for a clean, pleasant, and relaxing home away from home; The Getaway Chalet is a must!
Please don't let the review below scare you. We just had a wonderful week at Getaway Chalet. It looks just like the pictures on the website. The owners were extremely helpful and prompt answering questions by email leading up to our holiday. The cabin was comfortable and cozy and felt like home when we returned from daytrips each day. Deer and wild turkey visited us regularly. Yes, there were other cabins around - if you want amenities like pools, tennis courts, boat rentals, etc..... you are not going to find total privacy. The cabin was central to all of the places that we wanted to visit in the Poconos. My son loved the foosball table!!! No, it doesn't have air conditioning but there are fans in every room. After viewing pictures of the cabin and our trip, my friends at home were jealous. I forgot my keys at the cabin and the owners went to the trouble of mailing them to me. This was a very reasonably priced cabin. If earlier reviewers are looking for luxury, then they should be prepared to pay triple the price.
We have been renting this house for the past three years, and each time we have stayed there, we have had great experiences. The house is always spotless when we arrive, and we always find it to be cozy and inviting. Dominic and Nancy are great to deal with, always easy to reach and always quick to respond. Whenever we stay there, we arrive to a binder full of ideas for places to go, activities, recreation, brochures, menus and directions to many activities both in and outside the community. My kids are also always thrilled to find a bowl of candy there waiting for them too! It is a lovely home, located in a beautiful gated community. While not situtated on a heavily travelled road, it is just off the beaten path enough to be able to enjoy the surroundings in peace and quiet without feeling too isolated. We have enjoyed staying there so much, that we recently bought a fixer-upper at Arrowhead and are always thrilled when their house is available to rent for weekends when we are there to work on renovating our own house. So much better than staying at a hotel or motel! Thanks Dom and Nancy for providing me, my husband, our two kids and our dog a wonderful place to enjoy out vacations!
We were so excited when we found this so called "Getaway Chalet" It is on a gravel road. It is Not Private at all, it is completely surrounded by other houses. We walked into a House that smelled. There is no Air Conditioning, not that the lease tells you that. Screen door was broke, so couldn't leave the door open, because of all the bugs etc...The B-Q's were old & unusable. All of the TV's, DVD, etc... were outdated! The Beds were extremely uncomfortable. The carpets were dirty. Truly a "Huge Disappointment" The community amenities are fair. We did see a deer & had some fun at the Casino & some of the surrounding restaurants. Beware the pictures & description is very deceiving!
