Amazing Cottage for an Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My seven friends and I absolutely loved staying at this cottage for a weekend getaway from New York City. The accommodations were spacious and clean. The kitchen was stocked with all the gadgets, utensils, dishes, and glassware we could possibly need, which was incredibly important because our group loves to grill/cook. The living room was great for relaxing while watching some TV, but we spent most of our time hanging out on the wraparound balcony enjoying the scenery and gorgeous weather. Four acres was more than enough land to make sure our stay was quiet, but the sound system, which worked with all of our iPhones and iPods, had indoor and outdoor speakers and ensured that when we wanted music, we had it. We stopped by the Indian Rocks community area to play some half court basketball and take a dip in the pool (which was very clean and was not incredibly busy). The house came stocked with board games for downtime. The WiFi worked flawlessly - which was important since many in our group are email and instagram fiends. Also, my boys and I became pretty competitive on the ping pong table in the basement (Forrest Gump competitive, at least in our minds). While it's best to bring all the groceries you need, there are a few convenience stores not too far off, and we found a great supermarket about 20 minutes away. It was 50-55 degrees at night, which was somewhat cool for a summer night, but the chiminea kept my group toasty while we enjoyed some drinks in the outdoors. On our way home, we stopped by The Crossings Outlet in Stroudsburg (about 25-30 min away). I can't wait to go back to this cottage!

Beautiful and Accommodating Getaway Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying at Jules' beautiful cottage with 7 friends and we had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. The cottage is cozy, comfortable, private, and basically has every amenity you can ask for. I would recommend her place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway trip in the Poconos.

Perfect relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 7 people stay for the weekend. Everything was perfect. The house was just the right size for all of us to feel comfortable. We could all hang out in the living room without feeling crowded. The yard is great for exploring, and we even saw a group of wild turkeys. We are a group that loves to cook and the kitchen really was fully equipped with everything we needed. Thank you Jules for sharing your home with us. We loved it!

Relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the cottage. The cottage is set in a woodsy area so it was nice and cool through out our stay. The cottage is decorated very tastefully, artsy and is very warm and inviting. The stairs and the deck had gates which was perfect for our smallest toddler. The basement is unfurnished and very cold so we did not really get to use the ping pong table but every other aspect of the house is fabulous. The kitchen has everything for the serious cook! The community pool, tennis court and playground was great. The pool was heated so we enjoyed it even on cool days. The supermarket is only 10 minutes away so that was very convenient too. We all had a great time and would like to thank Jules for letting us stay!

Cool, cozy & comfortable

Eight of us, 4 adults & 4 children spent Memorial Day at this great cottage. The cottage location could not be better! Lots of privacy & places for the kids to look for rocks, sticks, etc. It's located far enough from the road that having the kids roam free outside wasn't an issue. The cottage itself could not be more comfortable. It's small, but there is plenty of room for everyone and at no time did we feel in each others way. The owner is clearly well traveled & very stylish. This is not your run of the mill rental with big, ugly furniture. This cottage has got style! It's a place for foodies - who like to cook. The kitchen had virtually everything you can think off. If its not there, you don't need it to cook. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. I could have spent a few days lying on the bed upstairs staring at the cool ankles of the ceiling and the beams. The washer/dryer in the basement was very convenient as well. I was excited to see the cottage when I saw the photos, it's much much better even in person!

Romantic Retreat - The Perfect Getaway from Busy NYC!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I and another couple were looking for a romantic weekend getaway from NYC this winter - one that we could get to in under 2 hours and that would provide a quiet retreat where we could hike, relax and generally recharge our batteries. I can safely say, this was one of the best getaway holidays I've ever been on.

Immediately after we got there, my boyfriend got to chopping fresh firewood (trust me, there was plenty of it already available - he just wanted to wield an axe and feel manly in the woods!), we docked one of our iPhones into the stereo system, and my girlfriend and I found ourselves almost instantly melting into our better selves in front of a roaring fire in the living room.

The owner left a bottle of wine for us (how cool is that?!) and we promptly opened it and toasted our fantastic decision for a getaway. Every part of the house paid such attention to detail and we had lots of options for where to sleep since we were only 2 couples and there are 4 bedrooms. It worked out perfectly. The rooms were so cozy and the decorations are fantastic. The owner has themed the rooms, one has amazing photographs of NY, the other has photos of the place called Grossingers' (where Dirty Dancing was filmed), and another has great artwork of animals (one painting, when we asked about it over e-mail afterward, turns out to have been painted by the owner's father when he was a child! We loved that!)

While we did do our own cooking most of the time (we stopped in Milford on the way up and picked up tons of fresh meat and cheeses at a place called Fretta's and there is a super easy to use gas BBQ outside on the covered porch), we also took advantage of a few drinks one night at a bar down the road called The Totem (indescribably perfect)- where we played pool, drank beer (2 for 1 compared to NYC prices!) and then were treated to a crayfish dinner by the locals. It was awesome.

We spent the days hiking (there are several great hikes nearby - including one to a glacial lake), reading, eating, and watching films on the t.v. in the living room that connects instantly to Hulu, Netflix, etc.

My girlfriend and I have been comparing dates for when we can go again this summer and do some more hiking - this time in the warmer weather. I strongly recommend it to other NYC based couples like us. It's like the getaway home you wish you owned in the country, but don't have to, because you can rent this one!!
