Fabulous Fun and Relaxation!

We stayed for 5 nights at the Mountaintop Cottage in early September. It was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we've had. With 3 young children, a vacation can sometimes turn into more work than anything else, but here, there were so many things for the kids to do from the time they woke up to the time they went to sleep. I don't remember them getting bored once! We were able to enjoy coffee on the patio in the morning while we watched the kids play on the swingset and in the sandbox and run around in the spacious open grassy fields. We absolutely LOVED the heated pool - no maintenance, the owners had everything on timers, so we could enjoy the 85 degree water whenever we wanted. We explored the adjacent hiking trails and meadow paths. The nights were cool enough to build a fire, which my husband has mastered both inside and out, so we got to roast marshmallows and sit by the fire. The kids loved the toy chest, games, movies, puzzles, and books that were provided. There is enough space to store your belongings, so long as you don't overpack. The washer and dryer were a huge bonus, especially for drying towels for the pool. Plenty of plates, glasses, pots, etc were provided, as well as towels and linens, which was a pleasant surprise. Even some toiletries were provided as well. The extra bathroom that was just installed on the first floor was also an added convenience. The location was close to many attractions - we especially enjoyed Holly Ross Pottery, Bushkill Falls, Lackawanna Coal Mine, and Twin Oaks Family Restaurant. Everyone was sad to leave and we look forward to another stay next year. Thanks Eileen and John for providing this wonderful spot for others to enjoy!

Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear our guest ( Natalie, Chris & children) had such a great time. This is our first year renting the Mountain Top Cottage and by the stories in our cottage guest book and by what our guests have told us they all have had such a wonderful vacation. It makes us very happy and so excited to be able to share our little piece of paradise with other families. We look forward to seeing Natalie, Chris and family next year as well as the many other wonderful families we were able to meet this past year.
