Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Every year my family and my sister's family sneak away from the city to the Poconos for a few days. Every year we look for a new place b/c the year before the house wasn't right. Not anymore, we've found the perfect place.

The kids disappeared downstairs the entire trip, adults upstairs...ultimate peace!

The house was very clean, kitchen is up to date, great location, and ton of space inside. Not to mention the hot tub! We were lucky enough to get snow and we were able to do some sledding right behind the house. It was great.

One thing to note: If it snows you will NOT be able to get up the driveway without Four Wheel Drive. (Even with my Jeep with 4 wheel drive I couldn't get up the driveway in the foot of snow). Wasn't a big deal, just parked the 2 cars at the bottom of the driveway and made the 50 yard work up/down the hill. House is so great and secluded it's worth it.

Owner is really friendly and always available to answer any questions.

I rented this chalet for an adult-kid-free-weekend and that is just what we had. Michael was great from the very beginning and very, very patient with me and my 100 questions I had for him. He arrived at the house to make sure everything was ok and even made sure that hot tub was on its way to steamville. :) This was my first time renting a property like this, and I am definitely looking forward to renting from Michael again.

Great Getaway with GReat Friends

  • 5 of 5

We had such a blast at this house for New YEars Eve weekend., What a relaxing, clean and fun house to be in. We took full advantage of the new kithcen and cooked each night. The bedrooms were spacious and there is alot of sleeping space. The owner was very patient with all my 100 questions and was very helpful. The only thing that stunk was that it did not snow :( so we could not take our kids tubing or skiing. We took advantage of the crayola factory and the outlets which were all within a half hour to 45 mins away. We would def rent this house again and reccomend it to anyone!!

Great house in great location!

  • 4 of 5

We were searching for a vacation home that could accomodate three generations of our large family in a location that would be convenient to all the attractions we were planning to visit. This house certainly did not disappoint. From the spacious lower level where the grandkids (ages 8, 7, 4, and 3) could play to the lovely master suite which was large enough to accomodate a travel crib for our newborn grandson. The open kitchen/great room area made it easy for all 13 of us to be together without being overcrowded. Another perk for us was the large parking area with more than enough space for our four vehicles. There is tons of deck space with plenty of outdoor seating, a family sized gas grill, and a great hot tub; all situated on a very private wooded lot. With this home as our base; it was an easy drive to the animal park, the casino, the speedway, rafting, the water park, and more. It is mere minutes to the lakes, the playgrounds, and mini-golf! We would most definitely recommend this house to other large families looking to rent a clean, spacious vacation home.
