Our home is less than a 1/4 mile from the lake where there is a private beach, picnic tables, and a beach volleyball court. The property is located near year round activities which includes swimming, boating, tennis, golf, paintball, white water rafting, outlet shopping, water parks, biking, and gambling casinos. A variety of winter activities -- there are two ski areas located near the home as well as an indoor water park, movie theater, bowling, indoor tennis and other indoor activities for children and adults. There are several restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual fare. It is a lovely and safe area to take long walks and enjoy the scenery and the abundant wild life.
There is something for everyone -- young and old -- you can enjoy all the physical activities or you can relax in the yard on a swing or on the deck with a book and enjoy the peace and quiet and the wildlife that roam the area. Nightlife is located in the community and throughout the seasons there are special events for guests to enjoy: May--Irish and Celtic Festival; June--NASCAR Pocono 500, Wine Festival; July--Pocono Blues Festival; August--NASCAR PA 500 Cup, Tribute Fest; Sept.--Goodguys Rod & Custom Assn American Nationals; Columbus Weekend--Arts and Crafts Festival.
The home was so beautiful, and the location was also perfect. This house had everything to offer from an awesome game room, clean hot tub and perfect little fire pit. Also, it was so close to the lake which was great. My friends and I rented out kayaks and went banana boating at the lake which ws super cool! (Less than $20). The house was also in a perfect location for morning runs. Overall a really great experience, not to mention the owner is super kind and willing to answer any questions you have. Will definitely be renting again!
Loved the hot tub and the deck. House was very nice and clean. Pool table was great. Lots of room for all our guests. John was very nice and easy to talk to. Gave a lot of information to help us enjoy our stay. Would stay there again.
We just came back from a week long stay and loved this house! The location of the home is great....close drive to the lake, restaurants, and recreation but also perfectly nestled in the woods. Overall, we had an amazing time!
Positives: The pictures online do not do the house justice! It is even better than the pictures lead you to believe (new deck, new furniture, beautiful new bathrooms, new appliances, etc). You can tell the owners are in the process of updating the house a bit at a time. I can only imagine how beautiful it will be in a few years! Plenty of space for sleeping and for the kids to play. The AC unit worked great during the 90+ degree days. The kitchen was totally stocked with anything we may have needed.
Room for improvement: TVs in every bedroom would be nice. We arrived to a driveway filled with trash from a bachelorette party that must have been there before our stay. The dishwasher was also filled with dirty dishes and a few of the beds had grass and dirt between the comforter and the sheets, so we had to wash them. There were no spare keys in the house, just the one in the lockbox. I also sent multiple emails to the owner between the time of booking and the actual stay that went unanswered, which may be a fluke because all the other reviews state that the owners were quite responsive.
This was my first rental on homeaway. We enjoyed our stayed. The house was beautiful and spacious.The listing was accurate the house was extremely spacious. The owner, John was accessible by email and text. The hot tub way relaxing. Everyone enjoyed the pool table and the dartboard. We wanted to a getaway from the city and that is exactly what we got. We enjoyed the sitting by the fire pit. We look forward to staying there again.
15 of us stayed in this home for a long weekend in July 2015. We had an excellent time, and all of us fit comfortably. The pictures and description are accurate. We loved the fire pit, hot tub, and the kids especially loved the pool table! We had an issue with the hot tub while we were there, but John responded to our concerns right away, and had the issue resolved. We were very pleased overall with our stay and will likely stay again in the future. Only recommendations are to add tvs to all bedrooms, and add another AC unit. While the AC unit worked well enough to certainly get by, we would have preferred it to be a bit cooler. Looking forward to visiting again!
There isn't much to say about this other than perfect. We absolutely loved the house, a great "home" feel. The kitchen had just about EVERY appliance you can imagine, fully-stocked. I have to say, the hottub and the firepit were two of my favorite things, especially during the snow showers! The owner, John, was one of the most accommodating owners i've ever rented with. I will definitely be renting again!
