Thank you very much for the use of your house. We had a great time. The location was the best for a get-a-way from anything but especially the city.
The living room was decorated beautifully and sofas were very comfortable.
We especially loved the TV and the surround sound with the extended channels and music.
And the personal touches like the card from Mom saying congratulations!!
We only used the one bedroom and closed off the rest of the house so that the dogs could not roam freely (thus being less that I would have to clean).
The Big Bed was my favorite and I loved the way it was dressed.
The kitchen was very accommodating and it was great to have such a clean refrigerator with lots of ice.
We eat-out during our stay so we didn't use the kitchen (other than storing cold beverages).
We just got back from the best vacation we ever had. The house was roomy and very clean, and well taken care of. We hand fed the deer from the back deck. The bedrooms were big and comfy!! We can't wait to come back next year!!
This was our second time staying in this & this time was even better than the first. Greg is awesome to work & very prompt in answering questions. We hope to stay here again!
We loved staying at Greg's house...everything was perfect. We even saw a bear!
Ill start this review the same as I start every review: I am a LONG TIME renter in the Lake Harmony Area, almost 2 decades between Jack Frost and Lake Harmony. In that time we rented, well, just about EVERY home in Jack Frost, and quite a few homes in Lake Harmony, and have only strayed off that path once or twice. We were renting a home long term, almost 6 years, twice a year, until the owners decided to cut ties with VRBO and Pocono Resorts Realty.
This was the 4th cabin we have rented since we were forced out of the 6 year home away from home, and I will say this was one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had. I am always concerned renting a new home, given some of the dumps we have come across in the past, but THIS cabin was amazing. Spacious but not TOO big. Nice sized deck we enjoyed to its fullest extent. The local wild life was VERY friendly, we got a late night visit Sunday night by a huge bear who decided to tare apart our garbage. Picture 3 guys, who are NOT in the best shape, 1 who was sleeping until the bear attack, trying to clean up garbage at 2 am with Paintball Guns as protection. It was quite the scene. The neighbors, who are the owners parents, also got hit that night by the same bear, and he TORE through their garbage worse.
The cabin was absolutely perfect for what we needed tho, BBQ was great, kitchen was just the right size to cook, great dining area and living spaces.
I WILL rent this unit again, providing it is available in the future!
We had a very relaxing enjoyable vacation at Claret Escape. The house was well equipped and spacious. Restaurants and shopping nearby were easy to locate with the owner's directions. Our grandchildren got to spend time on the beach and our dog got to see his first deer. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.
This quiet & wooded property is part of the Lake Harmony community high in the Poconos. The four bedroom setup was perfect for our three generational family & two dogs. The house was very clean, linen were fresh, and the kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans, utensils, silver wear, and glasses. The living room was large enough to let us all gather, but it was really underused since there was plenty to do inside the community, and outside at state parks, museums and a wide variety of commercial water parks. The grounds of the house gave us a large amount of space to eat-in-the woods, and cook smores in the fire pit area. Parking was ample for four cars and three tricycles on paved macadam. The children really enjoyed watching the chipmunks and does/fawns graze within 20 feet of the house each morning.
