Great Place for a Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say what a great time we had renting this place in March 2017. Had everything you need for a week away. We had 10 individuals, so there was plenty of space. This is our 11th year renting in the Poconos and by far, this was the best place. Owner was great to deal with. Responded quickly to several questions upon arrival and ensured that the plow person made it out in time for our second wave of attendees Wednesday after 24+inches of snow on Tuesday. Great location, close to Blakeslee and ski resorts. Even though there are neighbors, it seems like you are in the middle of nowhere...especially when there is 24+inches of fresh snow outside....No reason to go anywhere, kick back, watch movies on the projection screen and just enjoy the house.

Great for What We Needed!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! We had a group of 21 stay here and had plenty of room. Having decks on every floor really contributed to spacious feeling of the property. I think the only two downsides were 1) We couldn't figure out how to make the bathroom doors lock. Just had to be proactive to knock before entering. Nothing major! 2) There had been a misunderstanding regarding our arrival which prevented the cleaning lady from getting things in order before we arrived.

Michael was very easy to deal with, and we are definitely going to keep this on our radars as we do annual trips to the Poconos with our students every fall. Thank you!

The best house in the Poconos

  • 5 of 5

For 5 years I have been searching for the perfect house for my group's annual trip to the Poconos, this year I can happily say I found it. This place had enough beds for everyone. The entertainment room was great for watching sports and movies. The views from the decks were awesome. The house is a short drive to everything. The owner is great too. He gives you all the info you need and answers all questions quickly. We definitely will be back every year.

Roomy with a view!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this house in mid August . Place was convenient to everything. House had everything you need and then some. House was very clean and comfortable. The main living area is beautiful with all the wood trim only to be out done by the view off the 3rd floor deck. Incredible!!!

This home is WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

This home is WONDERFUL! The house is BIG so we were able to spread out and not be on top of each other which is great when you have 25 people. When we arrived we found it to be very clean and well stocked. There are 14 separate beds (we counted) including the pull out sofa bed. so those of us that weren’t a couple were able to get there own bed. The GIANT movie screen was great for Sunday football and the kids loved playing their video games on it.

The best though is the view at night from the fourth floor deck. AMAZING how many more stars there are in the sky when you leave the city!!!

The main floor is all wood as you can see in the pics. We found that there were permanent scratches in the wood floors. It didn’t bother us at all but, what a shame for the owner.

We highly recommend this home for any large group
