We had a great time over New Year's Eve! The pictures don't do it justice. The home is cozy, clean and centrally located. We took the short trip to spend the day skiing at Camelback and then enjoyed sitting by the fire each night. We booked close to our travel date and Geri was great to deal with. We had two families and there was plenty of space for us all. I would definitely rent again!
I spent my labor day weekend with my friends here. The house is cozy and clean so I felt like I was at home. There is a big lake where you can swim with basketball court and volleyball court just about 2 blocks from the house. Also famous paintball place, Skirmish was just 10 minutes from the house. BBQ grill was a old charcoal grill, but it got the jobs done. The owner Geri is kind and helpful throughout the renting process. I will definitely go back to this place for my next vacation.
We spent a weekend there. I felt myself separate from the rest of the world, 'cause this place was so quiet, calm and beautiful. Around a house you could see deers and turkeys. The house is cozy, tidy and homelike. Very soft couches and fireplace make your environment really restful and serene. Geri ( owner of the house) left a lot of prospects of all attractions, activities, restaurants and stores, so you would have a chance to visit them. We spent approximately the hole day in the "Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark". There is a spectacular lake in a five-minute walk with children's playground. So, if you want to have a great time- try this place, personally I believe, you won't be disappointed.
This is our first time renting a home. Thanks to Geri everything went smoothly from start to finish! We had a wonderful wonderful time! The house is beautiful, well stocked with dishes etc, and conveniently located to everything. The deer and turkeys came by often. It was so peaceful. We had a wonderful vacation!
This home had all it promised and more. Conveniently located to all the area attractions. We stayed during the June Nascar Events at Pocono's Speedway.
Home is warm, inviting and charming. With the deer in the yard to greet us and the wonderful fireplace to snug up near in the evenings, what more could we ask for.
The Owner was very easy to work with, great communication and very helpful
We would definitely stay here again
We recently stayed at the home - while attending the June Nascar events at Pocono's Speeday.
Conveniently located, easy to reach from many directions. Home was clean and the scenic view of nature all around us was relaxing and inviting.
I found the Owner to be more than willing to accommodate our needs and request. Easy to communicate with, proper with communication - both from and to.
