Guestbook comments from the owner
Exactly as depicted in the ad: a very nice rental, a very friendly owner!
Our first time renting here, for 4 nights, just as spring begins coming to the northeast after a brutal winter.
The best surprise is no surprise: everything was exactly as depicted in the photographs. It's a charming chalet, smallish but just the right size for 4-6 people or so, with a nice layout featuring one upstairs bedroom with an internal balcony overlooking the kitchen and living area below. (Two more bedrooms on the 1st floor). The house is extended by 3 porches: one, enclosed with mosquito netting, has rocking chairs. Another, open to the elements, has the gas grill (which we didn't use because we didn't want to have to clean it afterwards) plus a dining table and chairs, and a third, fully-enclosed area for the hot tub.
The enclosed hot tub alone was worth the price of admission! Who wants to jump into and out of a hot tub that's outdoors in cold weather?
The view outside is amazing, and the windows provide plenty of sunlight. The sound of the waterfalls goes away when you close the doors and window if you want it to, but who'd want to -- it's very relaxing!
I rented directly from the owner and paid via PayPal. He then e-mailed me a contract to sign which included information to provide the homeowner's association -- this property is in a gated community. I scanned and emailed him back and everything was good: the guards at the front gate had my name and info, and getting in was never a problem.
The house was clean, with dishware and linens in place. Baseboard heating (even in the bathrooms - Yea!) kept everything pleasantly warm day and night. The owner includes tags you can borrow for access to the community pools and exercise facilities.
We came to shop in the Pocono outlets and to check out the area. The only complaint (from a New York City dweller's POV) is that the house is a half hour's drive from anything interesting. Then again, getting away from it all may be the point!
Great value: I'd definitely rent this place again.
