'WOW, What a beautiful house! / OMG, this is way past the pics on line!/ This is really well kept and classy, there is even beautiful artwork!/ Its much larger than the pics look, gorgeous, very custom home/ Stunning home with great privacy/ The setting on the lake and serenity is more than we hoped for ,the perfect getaway/ Its magnificent now in winter, must be incredible in the summer, with the lake. etc./,It is an amazing home and we had a fantastic week!/ When we left we pulled the car over and got out to look back at the house and said, this isnt goodbye, only , until we see 'our' house again./ Absolutley adorable!/ Awesome home- we are pumped!' And all these folks ended the conversation with 'we will be back'. The old time builder who built this masterpiece, said he never put so much glass in one house. This is not a cottage, claustraphobic condo or modular pop up/tract house with 'a walk to the lake'. Its a 10! Serenity with everything you could need , minutes away.PLEASE READ over 30 REVIEWS!

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!!
I was looking for a relaxing getaway from the hustle of everyday life in the city, and this house was just what the doctor ordered. The house was clean and quiet. I think I spent more time relaxing on the deck than anything else, though it was nice to get back out on the tennis court! Andrew was very responsive to any questions I had, and I'd highly recommend this house to anyone looking to escape the daily grind for a bit.
Family and I recently stayed here over the weekend, and couldn't agree more with the other reviewers! The house had everything we needed, and the accommodations were clean and comfortable for our large group (and small dog!). Very large wrap-around deck to enjoy the spectacular views from every angle. Since the weather was picture perfect on Saturday, we traveled to a fishing lake nearby, and spent the morning catching trout! After we did some grilling, it was onto the outlets! Both attractions were only 20 minutes away! The large basement was perfect for some downtime, or to play some competitive ping pong.
Andrew was a pleasure to work with, and extremely helpful with any questions I had. I would highly recommend renting this place!
The house is so beautiful so peacefully My family and I just love it is so perfect the every morning when We wake up and take our breakfast We see that river outside to the windows and my two kids just love to play outside and see the water and see the tree the house is perfect every room is beautiful the kitchen is so pretty for sure We came back again for our summer vacation I hope so We can fine something available for the summer time because I guess every guess love the house and like to came back again
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this beautiful house. The water views are breathtaking, the house is immaculate with wonderful furnishings and we had so much fun using the ping-pong table. The kitchen is well appointed and the pictures don't do it justice - it's new and looks like it came out of a magazine. The location is ideal for skiing, outlets and sightseeing. Jim Thorpe is a quick drive and skiing is literally around the corner. After a fun day out it was nice to come back to a beautiful and relaxing lakefront home. The oversize jacuzzi and fireplace make this the perfect vacation house. The lake has a beach, playground, rec center and it's a great place to bike. Loved it and can't wait to go back!!
Had a wonderful stay!! The house was beautiful and clean. The owner was very accommodating and helpful with travel information since this was our first trip to the area. We can't wait to go up again I would love to go up in the summer since the home sits right on a lake it would be alot of fun to just stay and relax!!
We staid in winter, contacted the owner with some tips to improve the property instead of writing a sub-par review, as he was asking for a stellar one and we felt none was better. He wrote back saying he ''never opened the reply'' later saying ''he thought it was a personal reason we didn't want to give him a 5 start review, so he figured none of his business. We should send the reply to VRBO". Odd reply, but once I heard this was the reply I decided to now write.
The house is beautiful, the yard is unsuitable for humans as it's filled with downed trees since hurricane Sandy. (at least in November 2013, perhaps cleaned since) I would not like to be there in summer with the snakes, etc. The only path to the lake is the one you see pictured, all to the left is downed trees covering the yard 4 foot high. It's a great house that lacks in good furnishings, whicker garden furniture upstairs overlooking lake, not comfortable. Downstairs couch is old and failing, a set of 2 end tables were purchased and split between 2 bedrooms, leaving one side of the master bed empty, things like this. It could be a great rental, like add central air (or any) for summer users, upgrade the furnishings, etc. 3 stars generous is based on how nice Jim Thorpe is, and how nice the house and views are. 5 stars it simply isn't.
