Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home...fully equipped. SO close to the water with a very nice fire pit area. Great deck and love that he allows pets. Only wish the deck was better lit because we were out there so much! Would definitely rent again! Thanks Mark!

Beautiful lake location! Property needs TLC.

  • 2 of 5

House needs updating. Bathroom was nothing like picture. MB bed covers not clean, closet dingy with a bunch of old pillows on the floor, no chair, broken window closer. I could go on and on. Ripped screens on sliders. Addt'l laminate flooring standing in corner of dining room, broken faucet. Very disappointing. Lousy weather so we really coudn't enjoy the nice features which were the deck and beach by the water. Wished we had stayed home.

The deck and fire pit area by the lake were the best!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! We were kind of disappointed that the lakefront beach was extremely rocky and we couldn't swim. The recreation beach was really nice though and the kids loved swimming there.

Great Spot to Relax with Friends

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here to celebrate the end of our college careers and could not have had a better time!!! We used the outdoor space a lot - meals on the deck and evenings by the fire pit. We spent a lot of time in the lake and took the boat out a couple times as well.

The kitchen was reasonably stocked with cookwares as we prepared all our own meals (fajitas, risotto, pancakes, etc) and even used the gas grill. The coffee pot a bit on the fritz - leaked everywhere no matter what we did - but we still got our morning coffee!

I will say that the pictures make it look a bit more spacious than it really is but there was plenty of space for 6 of us to eat, sleep, shower, and relax. We are all introverts and there was no lack of available space to relax alone.

I was relieved that the grocery store, ShopRite, was only 12 minutes away and Walmart is about 20/25 minutes away. I have been to places that are great houses but basic goods require a drive - not a problem here! We took advantage of a mini golf place near by and also went to Tobyanna State Park for part the day to enjoy the sun, grass for bocce, and picnic tables. We would have swam, but the beach was closed at the time.

We loved all the nature!! There were deer everywhere, geese and their goslings, ducks and a loon. The deer are not afraid of people at all. They get rather close (w/in 20ft) and hang out while we grilled or relaxed by the fire.

Mark was great to work with. Any questions were dealt with in good time and he is very organized regarding instructions and his expectations of renters. I also appreciated that he rented to young people and trusted us. It was hard to find a reasonably priced place that disregarded our ages.

WOULD RENT AGAIN!!
