NOTE: We are heading back to Pocono Pines, Lake Naomi in about 4 weeks, and I happened to take a quick recent peek at the site and realized that our review from last year never posted! I found that I still had it in my file so am sending it on to Thomas and asking him to post it for us since I obviously failed at it last summer….I am pretty confident that this review will apply to the experience that that we are looking forward to having there in just a few more weeks!...
I began last February to find a place for our family to gather to celebrate my 65th birthday-my gift to myself. There would be my husband and me, our 3 sons and their wives, and our 3 grandchildren ages 5, 2, 1. We would be coming from Buffalo, Boston, Philadelphia and Nashville and the place had to be big enough and pet friendly. Searching through Homeaway, which we had successfully used once before, I zeroed in on the Poconos and discovered Pocono PInes. It sounded perfect and I began emailing Thomas with all kinds of questions. He was quick to answer and extremely helpful and always addressed any concerns I had. All sounded perfect so I booked a week in July and was excited when July rolled around. And then we arrived. Would it be all that we anticipated? In a word -YES!! It was all that we had hoped for and more! My kids commented several times during the week on what a great choice it was! The deck was wonderful, the house size was great, the kitchen large and well stocked, and the amenities (dock, kayak, pedal boat, pool table etc.) were all great and utilized by all! We also thought the counter and sinks in every bedroom were terrific and the master bedroom bathroom -wow! Plus, we did take advantage of getting a temporary membership to the Lake Naomi CLub and found it well worth it. It was a very hot week and the kids and the adults had great fun off the dock in the lake, at the small sandy beach just yards away, or in the huge Lake Naomi pool!.
We had only one regret...and that was that the week together ended and we had to leave! However, we liked it so much we have booked it again for next summer (2012)! Throughout our entire experience, Thomas was always very helpful and very accommodating and he is very receptive to suggestions for making it even more wonderful. Thank you, Thomas, for offering this wonderful property through Homeaway! See you next July!
