About as close to perfect as you can get...

  • 5 of 5

I have rented a lot of vacation homes in many states and this one is just about the best. If you are looking for adventure or just want to relax this is the place to be even if your traveling companions include the newer "grands", ages three and one, plus their parents and a friend. Had the older "grands" been with us also, ages fourteen and eighteen it still would have been perfect. It is spacious enough that all needs are easily met, including "having to bring work with you" that so many of us now do.

This is not to say that this is a family only style rental, it is ideal also for adults only.

With the central location, all of the year round activities the area is famous for are within an easy drive. This trip we did not do our usual antique/junk hunting but did try out the new water park where you can buy a day pass and it was great for the youngest to the oldest, but leaves you too tired to think about making dinner. Luckily there is a restaurant, Dana's, just down the road from the community that not only is happy to see you, and has good food but they will deliver for those not wanting to sit up straight.

The lure of the outlet stores, which I believe is called "The Crossing", proved a little too strong and with deeply discounted prices we made a few more trips than we thought we would.

Speaking of lures, I forgot to bring my fishing rod and one of the neighbors told me the lake was great fishing for bass - next time.

I had planned on visiting the Casino which really is only ten minutes down the road but a warm fire and good few good books added to the comfort of the house was too much to overcome.

You do need to bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels - there are plenty of blankets but even with the washer and dryer it is easy to underestimate how many towels you will use but that is easily remedied at Wal-Mart where the bath towels are only $3 each.

Food shopping is a bit more of a challenge, quality and price wise at both the Wal-Mart and I think the other local store was a Stop and Shop. The fresh veggies at the Wal-Mart were over-priced but if you went to their "organic" section, they were cheaper and fresher. Neither store is a store for fish lovers.

I would suggest doing what I usually do but didn't this time, which is to ask a local where they shop.

Would I recommend this property to a friend, or even more frightening to a relative? With no question about it, the answer is a yes.

I rented the house in February for a weekend with a couple of friends and family and we absolutely loved it. Super spacious, amazing view of the lake from the first floor. I definelty recommend this house, and would love to rent it again for the summer, to enjoy more of the backyard and lake.

Thanks again Lisa & Jay Butler!!

More than a view

  • 5 of 5

On behalf of me and my group, I wanted to thank you for allowing us to rent your home. The views and central location made it an ideal rental property, and the house amenities made for a most enjoyable stay. The tall windows allowed for great views over the snow covered lake from both the main and second levels which was definitely a plus in the mornings. The fireplace and open floor plan of the living room kept my group of 30 something's close and cozy but still spaced out with ample room. Will look to return for another winter adventure.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a weekend getaway at the end of October. The house was well maintained, spacious and very clean on our arrival. There is a large kitchen, living room and basement, which has a pool table. It's right up on a beautiful lake with amazing foliage the weekend we were there. The owners were friendly and easy to reach. I hope to come back for another weekend, and definitely recommend this property for anyone looking to rent a home in the Poconos.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately the weather was poor the weekend I rented this house but other than that it was a very good time. The house is very spacious and well lit and right next to the lake. The hot tub is wonderful and the living room is the same. The basement was not finished yet but that was the only downside to this home. Overall it was a great stay and i'd recommend it to any group, of all ages

You'll love the views from the deck overlooking the lake in this private, gated community. Just 2 hours from Philadelphia and New York City. Cast a line from the private dock, take a leisurely paddle up the lake in the canoe provided with the house, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery on the private beach. There's plenty to see and do both in the community and the surrounding area depending upon the season. Enjoy skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing in the winter. The house is 16 miles from Camelback and 26 miles to Jack Frost/Big Boulder. In the summer enjoy the community beach and pool. Camel beach & Shawnee water parks are just a short drive away. Horseback riding & outlet shopping is available all year around. Ten minutes to the new Mt. Airy Casino. Don't forget the Nascar Pocono Races either! A Lot to do & see no matter the season. The fall and spring brings the splendor of the foliage. Don't forget your camera and hiking boots to fully enjoy nature at its finest!
