Great location, nice and clean!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and pleasant - we found everything we needed.

Right on the lake which is great.

The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was that the mattresses were on the soft side, and in my opinion too soft.. but that is my opinion.overall great house and very easy to deal with the owner!

Very unhappy with the overall experience.

  • 1 of 5

We were very unhappy with the experience. The gas grill had no gas and we were told if we wanted gas we should fill the tank ourselves. The beach and 2nd pool shown in the pictures is not included in the rental and required paying a daily fee. The pool that is part of the association was closed the day we tried to use it. Two of the TV's had no service, 3 remotes for each and we where told by the owner it was tricky and just keep pushing buttons until something came on. The need for bringing personal items included trash bags and soap for the dishwasher. Don't plan on cooking as the pans, silverware and dishes are minimal and very old. Because they are not local owners they don't seem to take care to make sure that the experience of staying at their unit is very pleasant.

Nice enough, but has some issues

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice condo in a lovely setting. The rooms were nicely sized and the view of the lake is lovely. It is nice being able to walk right out the patio door and down to the lake.

Some issues we encountered:

1.There appears to be a moisture problem. The dehumidifier in the entry hall ran constantly. We had to empty it twice daily. If it stopped running while we were out, we came back to damp floors and moisture on the windows.

2. This is a bring your own everything rental. The listing does say that you need to bring your own linens. However, we found there was no hand soap, no toilet paper, no kitchen towels, no books or games for a rainy day. There were 5 plates in the cupboard, so we had to wash dishes after every meal. There were not enough drinking glasses, but a stack of disposable plastic cups to use. The overall feel of the place is ungenerous.

3. The lake is lovely, but the lake club is not included with the rental. We had to pay a daily fee per person to use the beach, pool, and boat rentals. The boat rentals are on top of the daily fee.

4. During our stay, one of the units above us had an alarm go off. It was loud enough to be heard several buildings away. We called the security number and left a message to alert them to the issue. After two hours of no response we called the management number. They told us that they were aware of the alarm and had called the owner of the unit, but couldn't do anything else. The alarm continued to sound for at least five hours before the owner arrived to turn it off. One hour later security returned our call to see what we had called about. What if this had been an actual emergency? Is this all the response that management and security provide? This, of course doesn't speak to this unit and owner, but it does give an idea of the general state of the resort.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review. The following is the answers to the issues: 1. The beautiful view comes with the price: on the lake brings a lot of moisture, and mountain weather brings more raining days. To make the guests feel more comfortable, I bought the de-humidifier to dry the air for wet days. I believe this is a plus, not the negative issue. 2. On 8/13 /2017, the email sent to the guest with 5 attachments. The document listed the items the guest will bring, which specifically listed bath towels, toilets tissues, personal items are not provided and the guests should bring these items by themselves. On the another document named condo info, it was specified that the consumable supplies are not provided. Paying attention to the information owner provided will avoid such situation. 3. The lake club is included in the rent, if not, my quests will not be allowed to use it regardless. However a couple years ago when the management changed, the club requires the non-property owner to pay a small fee to use the club even the property owner paid a membership fee. The fee is very small: as of 2017 summer season it is $40 for total 4 days covering up to 6 people. The guest mentioned paying daily for each person is non-exist. The boat rent is not related, you rent a boat for your own use, or, you can bring your own. The boat rent is never free. 4. The situation described sounds a malfunction of alarm system, which deems a non-emergency situation. In the case of emergency, the guests should call 911, not the property manager. The resort has on-site security manager every day. Sometimes the security car is right on the gate entrance. The resort is well managed and HOA always put the security at the first priority. However as the property owner, I‘ll bring the alarm issue to the attention of HOA. Thanks to raise the issue.

Beautiful house right in front of the Boulder Lake. Loved the high speed internet, the cable and the activities at the lake club. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Great short stay at pocono mountain.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As always this Condo is everything that is stated. This is my 4th time staying here and this time it was for a small honeymoon with my new wife Liz. Liz and I feel like this condo is part of our relationship as we have created so many fond memories here. The view is truly amazing, the condo is clean, cozy, and everything you could ask for in the Poconos. It's simply the most relaxing place to me. Walks along the lake, great local restaurants, and ending the day in front of the fireplace is everything we could ever want. Lucy is so easy to work with the whole process is smooth and she really cares about her guests. I would recommend this place to my closest people. Liz and I can't wait to get back next year. Oh yeah one negative you have to leave and go back to reality :)
