Guestbook comments from the owner
Wow, what a drop dead gorgeous home and setting! A wall of glass overlooking this pristine ,serene mountain lake, set in a backdrop of nature. A perfect end of summer escape and from the rat race, and local to all Pocono activities . We opted to stay at the home ,set In a private setting, with no one around, dead quiet, and sat up in the loft, read a book and sipped a glass of wine, looking out thru the woods at the lake. Only minutes to lakeside dining in lake Harmony, and big boulder action. ( we are already planning a ski trip to big boulder and Jack Frost, minutes from the home.) split rock resort is also here and many activities , including indoor water park, movies, hike, etc, are open to the public. Casinos / all shopping / horseback,golf, camelback were also about 20 minutes.
The home was immaculate and upscale, and Andrew was a pleasure to deal with. We took good care of his home( we do want to be able To escape" again), and true to his word , returned all our deposit monies.! I would recommend this home to anyone who wants a cut above, and In a nice safe community, as they have 24/7 security. We had read prior to booking that some of the communities especially up by Mt Pocono, did not have safe reputations. This home had it all, we will definitely be returning !! A five star home for sure!!
