Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 5 of my friends rented this house. It is clean, comfortable, and has plenty to do. You never have to leave the house. I reccomend this house as a vacation getaway.

Depends on what you are looking for...

  • 2 of 5

We recently stayed here for a family/friends vacation over the holiday. The house was in a very nice, secure gated community and the proximity to amenities (skiing, tubing) was great. The house sleeps 16, but the kitchen is not equipped for a large gathering. You’ll need to bring your own mixing bowls and large pots if you are cooking for a large group. There are no rugs in the entry way, so be prepared with a large group to have wet socks unless you supply your own entry way doormat. Also, don’t forget dishtowels. The mattresses are old and not very comfortable and guests should make sure to bring their own blankets or sleeping bags. The arcade games were fun for the kids, but not all of them worked. Also, there’s no complete instruction manual for anything – we got there and struggled to figure out how to turn on the water and we had to go digging behind the TV to find the Wi-Fi code. All in all, it was fun if you’re expecting something closer to a camping cabin, but did not meet our expectations for a resort getaway.

Fun was had but the sleeping conditions were bad

  • 2 of 5

The space and all the games made our trip good but the bedrooms and sleeping conditions are horrible. Mattresses and pillows are old, stained and uncomfortable without top sheets provided for most beds, The back bedroom smells of septic and the rugs are stained and ripped, The drawers in the kitchen will fall out if opened more than half way. I don’t like giving a bad review but I wish someone had told us before we rented

Most fun I've had yet in the Poconos!

  • 5 of 5

Every year I help organize a vacation for me and 13 friends. Up until now, no place has had everything we could hope for. Then I stayed at "The Gameroom House". We've been doing this for 5 years and this is easily the most accomodating, spacious, and clean place we have ever vacationed at. The kitchen was large and had all the appliances we needed. The jukebox in the basement kept the good vibes going. The Tetris arcade machine brought me right back to being a kid again! Oh, and the hot tub is amazing... It is big and shielded from the elements, but with plenty of windows to make you feel like you are outside in the woods. The community is very well run with a ton of ammenities to take advantage of if you leave the house.

Finally, John was so great about communication. I never had a problem I needed to contact him about, but I am not the best organized person and I asked him a million questions before we got there and he answered each quickly.

Incredible house, lots of space, great game room!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and i stayed here for a bachelor weekend and we could not have been more thrilled. The open layout lent itself so well to hanging out, big meals, a friendly poker game. The deck was great for grilling and seeing deer (which we did!) and the hot tub, nestled inside a little nook, was right off the game room and in a warm environment.

The game room itself was perfect, so many great options (and a childhood throwback for me with Road Blasters!). Everything was so comfortable and clean and roomy, and for a great price. We'd recommend this place in a second.
