About Kathleen M. Barbone

I am a Native New Yorker, who moved to North Eastern PA/Pocono area due to my husbands job transfer....yes almost 28yrs ago! At the time we had 1 daughter, who was born in New York, & had our 2nd child here in PA. We raised our family here, which BTW, is a Greeeeat place to raise children! Our family has expanded to the next generation, which is an exciting part of our lives now!

Since then, we moved from The Hideout, but are not far off from the beaten path!

It makes for a great location, especially to accommodate the needs of our guests, if need be.

Kathleen M. Barbone purchased this house in 1987

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend in this beautiful, very, very clean and spacious home. We had three families sharing this house and it had loads of space for everyone to disperse but enough space for when everyone was together as well. Kathleen was great to work with and she had a lovely welcome gift for us when we arrived. We utilized the ski area since it was a short driving distance and the prices were very inexpensive for the kids to tube, ski and skate. Thank you so much for a great weekend.

Owner's Response: This leaves me literally speechless! I am sooo happy when I hear such lovely things. It only tells me that I was a success in fulfilling the needs of another guest/group. Mary was a pleasure to work with. In our communications, she stated that her children really enjoyed the community, & they would like to come back in the summer. As they enjoyed our winter sports , I am sure they would enjoy the summer ones here as well, with such an array of things to do. We look forward to Mary, her family, & guests visiting with us again in the future!

Beautiful home in a beautiful community

Spent a long weekend this winter at this lovely home. . Everything from booking to check-out was very smooth . . Everything inside the home was clean and comfortable. The amenities of the community are pretty nice too .. we were a group of 8 and everyone found something fun to do either in the house (ping pong, fooseball, pool table, wine) or outside (skiing, ice skating, tennis). Overall a wonderful place just made better by all the host who is very co-operative and responsive.

Owner's Response: This young gentlemen, (Ankit), was a pleasure to work with. The inquiry came in on Tuesday, January 13th. As indicated by the guest in his review, everything went smoothly. With such a short time frame, with arrival for Friday, the 16th, I must say that this couldn't have gone any smoother! I guess when your out to have a get away, with limited time to complete the transaction before arrival, response time is of the essence! & this couldn't have been any Better! We hope to have Ankit & his guests again in the future!

Very nice, clean, spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for a few nights in the summer, with our extended family, ages 4 till 65, 9 people in total..

It is exactly as described. Super clean, spacious, organized. Has all the amineties you need. The owner Kathleen is very friendly and helpful. It has comfortable beds, clean sheets and towels. Basically everything you can ask for.

The house has plenty of areas to hang out and relax, such as the living room, sun room, out door deck and of course the basement.

Unfortunately when we were there it rained so we didn't end up using the pool or lake.

It's highly recommended!

Owner's Response: What a lovely review! I don't always have the pleasure of meeting all of our guests, but from this review, I can only have great thoughts of who this family is. It is always wonderful to hear nice things, which shows to future guests the credibility I/we have, in hope that they will stay with us too. I am glad I have met the expectations of Mireille & her family, & I hope if they choose to stay again with us in the future, I will have the pleasure in meeting them, & they get to use the pool & lake!

great family rental!

Beautiful home with plenty of accommodations!!!

Our family spend thanksgiving at this lovely home. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked for our needs. The game room was a big hit with the kiddies. The owners are very helpful and kind. We went during a snow storm and the home was cleared out when we arrived. We are looking forward to renting again. Wonderful experience!!
