The property we stayed at exceeded or expectations

  • 5 of 5

my family and I had a wonderful time staying at this lovely home in Lake Harmony. The house had every amenity we could think of. It was obvious that the owners put in a tremendous amount of thought into how they supplied their home for their guests. We would definitely come back again.

Perfect cozy mountain house for a great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need for a great mountain experience. All the modern amenities you need in a clean, extremely comfortable home. Each bedroom has its own thermostat to control your comfort level. We enjoyed skiing and tubing during our stay at Big Boulder which was 2 minutes away. You can see the slopes from the back deck. The owners were great to deal with and I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. We look forward to our next stay.

Very nice property overlooking Big Boulder

Owners were very easy to work with when obtaining key and overall communication. The property does not feel like a rental, nice furniture and well maintained.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in late July. Two adults and two girls (8) and (11) from Havertown PA. We absolutely loved the place. During our week it was very quiet with no neighbors (Yeah)except for 2 doors down on the 1st night 10 or so early twenties renters very loud partiers (think Rave music). At around 9:00 I went over and asked them to turn it down and they did and thankfully it was their last night. Could have been a different experience if it was their first night (sigh of relief). My wife and girls loved the furniture fixtures and decor. Very new and high end. Beds and linens were great and comfortable. Everything very clean. No A/C in the place and no worries. Every room has ceiling fans plus the breeze and it actually got cool when Phila was in the low 90's!. Plus this is a corner unit higher up on the hill so it is shaded and get a nice breeze. The Big Boulder Club access included in the rent was the activity of everyday. We rented a boat a few times to fish (actually cought a few). My kids love to swim so they were out in the lake mainly (pool a couple times) on the large bouncy ponton right off the beach for at least 4 hours a day. The beach side bar was used often and they almost give away food and drinks at happy hour the prices are so low. Food is pretty good too and drinks pretty strong. The Austin T Blakslee natural area down the road is a really neat place to hike and fish. We went to Camelback Water Park for a day (kids loved it Dad not so much). Great pizza / pasta place on route 940 (unfortunately forget the name) on the right hand side before you get into Blakslee. The condo owners are very friendly. You can see that they really care about their property. They gave us some really good recommendation for dinner places they frequent, we got to 2 of them and were not disappointed. Just a fun relaxing place. We hope to rent again! Four satisfied "customers".

Owner's Response: This review was great and thank you for sharing all the great places to eat and have fun so close by. We also do try to constantly upgrade the interior of the home. We do wish you just call security to handle the noise a few doors down. We have 24/7 security may not be at the gate but just a phone call away and phone numbers posted on the fridge. We do hope you do return again.

Summer 2014 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I would like to thank the owners for allowing us to use their home. We've vacationed in the area for several years, and enjoyed this the most. The place was very clean which my wife appreciated, and our two sons ages 4 and 22 months had a blast at the lake club. Thanks again and we will definitely be back. Id highly recommend this home and area to anyone and for all ages. There is litetally something to do for everyone. Thanks again. - Dave.
