Great vacation spot for families!

  • 5 of 5

We recently vacationed here with our two adult children and families, which included four toddlers. The camp had loads of space for all. We enjoyed not only the lake for swimming, fishing, and kayaking, but also the game room amenities. Whether it rained or not there was plenty of space for all to be happy. Our grandchildren especially enjoyed seeing multiple deer in the yard each day. The camp is close to the outlet mall, water parks, and other activities if you choose to do them. Overall the camp provided a great spot for our summer vacation get away!

Wonderful home fulfilling all of our vacation needs

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the home. In terms of my criteria for spending a winter weekend in the Pocono's, I really wanted a home that was clean and nicely laid out. It definitely met those needs. And my friends and I really wanted a home that had a pool table and a hot tub. Well, the pool table was in perfect condition......we played a lot of pool.......and I think the hot tub was very recently purchased. It seemed brand spanking new. And it easily fit 4 to 6 people. The jets worked with just the push of a button. Other very nice features of the home included a large, sprawling living room, 4 large king beds that really accommodated us, and an air hockey table that we had some good fun with.

The location of the house was really nice. It was 15 minutes from Camelback Ski Mountain, so it was easy to get to the mountain for our 2 days of skiing. And it was close to some very good restaurants. Our favorite one was the Barley Creek Brewing Company. The house was located off the beaten track, so it was nice and quiet. Very bucolic, which we liked. And even though there was a lot of snow on the ground, and it was hard to make out the lake, I could easily tell that if we had been staying there during the spring , summer, or fall, we would have had a beautiful view of the lake. I think I'll be going back again in the summer. Several times when we walked outside of the house (2 or more times) we saw deer no more than 10 yards aways from the front door. I've seen a lot of deer in my life, but never so close. That was really neat!

The owners quickly addressed all of my questions before I arrived at the house. They were very helpful and very amenable.

I obviously give big kudo's to this house. If your criteria and desired amenities for searching for a rental house are similar to mine, I think this one should definitely be on your list.

Great house in great location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house, very clean and was nice having king size beds. The downstairs area was really nice to hang out in and shoot pool or go in hot tub. Fireplaces added a cozy feel.

Plenty of room for everybody

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 3 nights in September. 2 adults and 5 kids. Plenty of room for everybody. Dowstairs was an entertainment center for all my kids, pool table, air hockey table, poker table, plenty of board games, books and hot tub which was all ready before we got there.

House is very clean, all 4 rooms (3 upstairs, 1 downstairs) have a very comfortable king size mattresses. Kitchen is fully equipped.

Indoor pool which is located not far from the house was great, has a bar and mini restaurant too! Best thing was Saturday night bingo where we met so many nice people, kids had a blast.

Watching kids hand feeding deers is priceless. We were not very lucky with fishing unfortunately but we cought few catfishes at night.

The owners are extremely nice people, very helpful, right on top of answering all questions, making sure we have all we need and are comfortable.

The only two things I would suggest is getting a gas grill and maybe making a firepit bit nicer and supplying some chairs to sit around. Besides that it was a perfect late September weekend with a great weather.

Thank you Rita and John for letting us stay at your lovely property.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Went there over 4th of July with a group of 8 friends and their kids. From the beginning John and Rita were great. Any questions I had were answered very quickly. The house was awesome - large, spacious, and very clean. We loved the downstairs game room with pool table and air hockey. Loved hanging out in the backyard, grilling, and had our own private lake access complete with row boat and paddle boat. We are already making plans to stay here again in the future!

About John or Rita

We live just outside of the City and enjoy being able to escape the city life to the woods with such a short drive. We love the seclusion & Privacy of the 'being away from it all' feeling our home gives you. Our home is just 1 and a half hours from NYC and Phila.

John or Rita purchased this house in 2006

Why John or Rita chose Long Pond

We Loved this location when we first saw how the beautiful & Private it is along with being right on the lake sold us the first time we saw the area. We have a huge backyard & welcome dogs as well.

Our Lake house sits on a wooded lot where many deer frequent. We are greeted by our 4 legged friends every morning! One of our little guests named the deer 'LuLu' and ever since she's been a popular addition to the family! Since we love to fish, we both enjoy the luxury of walking out of our door and the convenience of having our boats right in our own backyard. We also love being able to use the Pool in Summer and enjoy the Indoor Pool & Sauna all year round, never running out of things to do to keep us occupied. We also love the convenience of being close to Camelback Ski Resort, Kalahari Water Park, and the Crossing's Shopping Outlets as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful White Christmas! We loved feeding the deer in the morning

and the evening. We found they like dried fruit and nuts. Spent Christmas eve at

Camelback & Christmas night at Big Boulder Snow Boarding. Went tubing on the

26th had a blast but long lines since it's a Holiday Week. Camelback is the Best

place for Snow Tubing for the whole family! We came all the way from Texas!

It was a nice visit and we'll miss the deer!!
