Memorial Day Weekend Disappointment

  • 2 of 5
My friends and I are part of a travel group. We like to take mini-trips with each other and plan fun activities. We do extensive research and planning prior to any trip that we go on. I am a firm believer of reviews as it gives a lot of insight into the places that are being visited. I felt it my duty to write a review on this location for any future travelers/guests. We picked this location based on the accommodations for our group of 10 adults and 2 children. On first arrival, I noticed a musty odor and it felt very humid and uncomfortable. The next morning the owner was contacted and admitted that she forgot to flip the switch the day prior. The humidity issue was thus fixed but honestly, that musty odor never went away. The house lists a BBQ grill outside. That was, simply put, false advertisement! Our group was very disappointed because we planned this whole weekend based on grilling. We had a bunch of marinated food for a "Memorial day" weekend. The grill was not functional at all! In fact, it was disgusting. It was old, would not even light, and was in terrible decay. We contacted the owner again but she was out of town. My question is, how do you NOT check on a grill for Memorial day weekend? Our group had to use a small flat iron cook top to grill our food and the rest went into the oven. The owner decided to charge our group for a misc fee for clean up (taken from the security deposit). Owner claims that "grill" was left unclean and greasy and we forgot to move the two twin beds back together. She's talking about the flat iron grill that we had to use because the "real" grill was non functional. Absurd! A "clean up" charge when we had no AC one night and no grill period! I am writing this review to let future renters know of this. Our travel group does not recommend this house. We would NEVER stay here again! Total Disappointment!

Owner's Response: Thank you, but I must respond to this review. First clarify the amount of people in your party. I counted 13 on the rear deck and who know how many more were inside. Secondly the ages of your party were not at all over the age of 25. The only thing you are correct in stating is that the grill was in poor shape, but there was also a back up grill and a charcoal grill for your use. I have since bought a brand new grill. The air conditioning worked fine once the switch was turned on which was corrected within 4 hours of notification. The reason for the extra charge was due to the fact that the kitchen was left with dirty dishes on the counter, stove and in the sink. The dish washer was not even turned on and if it had been there was no way the dishes would of ever came out clean because it was so over loaded. I would of dis reguarded all of the dirty dishes but after doing 3 loads of dishes through the dish washer while putting clean dishes back into the cabinets, the dishes that had been previously used and replaced as clean were not. They were covered in grease and hardened food. I sent you photo's of how our home was left.
I have only taken money 2 times from any previous guests in the last 4 years of renting our home and each time it was from the younger and too many people parties. That's why it states only families need apply. We have never been interested in being known as the animal house in our nice community. If anyone would like to see the photo's of how our home was left I can forward them to you.

Birthday surprise

  • 5 of 5
My name is ivan. I recently stayed in this house for my fiance's 30th birthday. The weekend could not have gone better. The house was very accommodating and confortable for all my guests. The kitchen and game area where a hit. I could not have asked for a better set up. Donna was very helpful and patient throughout the whole Process which I may add was a breeze. Thank you so much for the rental. If you want to get away on any event, look no further, I highly recommend staying here any time Of the year.

We enjoyed our visit very much. The house was even nicer than we hoped. It had a warm, cozy feeling. Everything was very clean. There was even unopened soap in the soap dishes. All the paper products were there. I even found matches for our birthday cake. The new Tiffany lamp over the dining room table was pretty. The beds and furniture were great. We fit five grand kids in the downstairs bedroom with the double and twin. Some slept on the floor on cushions and sleeping bags. I recommend this place.

What a Home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 days for the thanksgiving weekend and were pleasently surprised. Everything you could possibly need was available for your use. I mean everything!! The home is very nicely decorated and you really feel cozy unlike other homes I have rented. Also the beds are very comfortable and you could just tell that everything is clean. The owner provides TONS of linens so you really dont need to take any of that.The lake is literally right there and there is also a playground which was great for the kids!! There are 2 amazing fireplaces that make for a nice romantic evening. I would definitely recommend this home for anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway.

Perfect for Our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely home in August. Rocking on the porch, watching the fawns while sipping our wine was so relaxing. We felt like we were at our own home, not someone elses. We found the home to be clean and having coffee and tea already in the home was a nice touch. We didn't need any spices for our cooking and grilling. The central air was only needed 2 days due to cool breezes from the lake. The children loved the air hockey table, boat and the games. The lake area was very clean and the staff was very professional and helpful. There were 14 in our party and the home may look a little small but it is very deceiving. Lots of space and extremely comfortable. Tastefully decorated and had everything for the cooks in us. Would love to come again. We went white water rafting, sightseeing and shopping. Excellent location for all. Planning on a ski weekend with the family to enjoy the home in winter. Thanks for a Great Gathering Home.

Head North to Scranton Area to enjoy Coal Mine Tours. Camel Back offers Skiing in Winter and a Waterpark in Summer is only 17 miles or just Shop at the Crossings. Big Boulder and Jack Frost offer many different venues throughout the year. Penn's Peak is where you'll find concerts, just a 15 minute drive. 40 minute Ride and you're at Bush Kill Falls walk through the Water Falls or Shawnee Ski Resort. Wilks Barre is where you'll find Pocono Downs and Mohegan Sun Casino just a 25 minute drive at Pocono Downs. Mount Airy Lodge just Opened as the First Casino in the Pocono's and it's only a 20 minute ride away.

Sleds

Golf: Golfing is every where in the Pocono's. Jack Frost just opened a Public Golf Course. Split Rock also has one.. They say the Pocono's are North of Myrtle Beach with many champion Golf Courses, we have only played a few... Look for coupons in the local newspapers.

Ski: Jack Frost and Big Boulder are Sister Companies, so you can pay one price and ski both mountains. They both offer tubing for the non-skier. They both have bars and offer many different venues throughout the year... Jazz Festival... Celtic Festival...

Camel Back is a 25 minute drive. They have the best skiing in the area with Ultra Fast lifts. They have been running the best deals with Snow passes. Try to rent equipment off site for added savings.
