Great Pocono House for a Peaceful Trip

What a clean, nice, and peaceful house! We had a great stay during our trip. Plenty of space, nice and quiet, and the house was in perfect condition when we walked in.
A few simple instructions from the owner where written down, and opening and closing the house was easy.
The perfect spot to relax, and take a break, we will definitely be back!

What a great weekend we just had in the Poconos! Thanks Mike and Megan for such an easy rental. The place was MUCH more than we expected! The layout of the cabin was great and super clean! We wish we could have tried your restaurant recommendation for Trattoria, but we were too busy cooking and having a great time, that we never made it! We are already making plans to return in the Summer! We loved how the place was tucked away in the woods. All the bedrooms in the loft were PERFECT for the kids, and the big dining room table, awesome kitchen, and cozy fireplace kept us entertained downstairs for hours. The boardgames you had were great and made for some great family competition ;) We barely had time to even squeeze in a game of fusball downstairs! We did a whole day at Blue Mountain on Sunday (thanks for that recommendation too!) We tried skiing and the kids LOVED the family tubes.
Thanks again for an awesome time! We will definately be back!
Amy, Kevin and kids ;)

I stayed here last year & had to do it again! A group of 8 of use stayed for the long Labor Day Weekend & enjoyed White Water Rafting at Jim Thorpe all of Saturday. We cooked dinner & enjoyed the evening to do it all again on Sunday. We took advantage of the community pool which was semi-heated! The house was cozy, warm, & felt like we were at home. We are def. staying here again next year!

Thank you to the Romanos!

Perfect Getaway Weekend

Spent MLK three day weekend at this warm and inviting house in the Poconos. Fit two families easily and felt like home. Not far from the ski slopes in a quiet, safe community. We had everything we needed including a well equipped kitchen, laundry room, game room, and spacious living area. This was our second year renting the house and we've already inquired about 2013. Thanks!

Wonderful Mountain Retreat

  • Stayed: Feb 2012
We love this mountain getaway! Nestled in the Pocono mountains, we really have enjoyed our stays here, from going skiing at nearby Blue mountain to just taking walks around the lovely lake down the road. The house is very warm and cozy, with plenty of comfy beds for everyone. We especially love the big fire pit outside, a wonderful party site for everyone to sit around, share stories and toast marshmallows. This is the perfect house for a reunion of family or friends! We'll definitely be back!!
