Pets are considered if they are house broken and clean, protected with flea, tick and lice treatments. The house is clean and there is never pet odors. I have allergies and need it to be clean. There is central vacuuming so daily upkeep is easy.

Great vacation stay in the north PA Poconos

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just had a great week at this (Roger's) Damascus, PA vacation house. We had as many as eight people for two nights and we were all comfortable with no inconvenience. The property is very close to cool Callicoon, NY and the historic Woodstock music festival area & Monticello. Lower half of property is one big family recreation area and all the bedrooms are upstairs. Beautiful Delaware River overlook view with outdoor fire pit. Hopefully we'll be back next year.

Very good weekend at the beautiful house !

  • 5 of 5

We were 9 and stayed one weekend. We loved did !!

Staying away from NYC in this house was the best: it's in the middle of the mountains, very calm and relaxing. The hot tub with the view is incredible. Lots of things to do: pool table, ping pong table, barbecues, hiking, kayaking.... it's perfect !

Thanks again Roger.

Quiet, peaceful, romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time at the house, so we had an idea of what to expect, and we were not disappointed. There was one small glitch with the TV on our first night, but Roger took care of it right away and it was a perfect stay there for the week, just the two of us in our late '60s looking for some quiet downtime. There was hardly a sound to be heard outside of bird calls. The house is clearly a place that can accommodate any size group and need not be simply a quiet getaway. I can see how a group could have fun there with the entertainment options, hot tub and all that. Just wanted to say it worked well for us as a couple, too. The picture of the woods and river is a view from the master bedroom, as well as other rooms on that side of the house. We woke to the view every morning, sometimes watching the fog lift from the valley as the day began. Wonderful way to start the day.

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend at the Damascus house to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday and did we all have a blast! The house was able to accommodate all 10 of us without bumping into each other. It was the perfect space and layout. It rained one night so we used the fireplace instead of having an outdoor firepit which was a plus. Also, the hot tub was amazing rain or shine, especially with that amazing view. It was such a pleasure communicating with the owner, Roger. Would definitely go back and rent this property.

Special place

  • 4 of 5

Roger's house is perched in such a beautiful and peaceful spot. Loved watching the hawks riding the thermals above the Delaware. House is pleasant, clean and comfortable. Roger is an accessible and warm host. Hot tub puts it over the top!

Map

Car: necessary

Northeastern Pennsylvania borders the foot of the Catskill Mountains, and is a host to year round activities, including auctions, antiquing, shopping and museums. Activities in New York are also easily assessable.

In the summer there is a host of outdoor activities such as fishing, rafting, canoeing, swimming, bicycling, horseback riding, golfing, hiking, country fairs, live theater, and concerts at Woodstock Concert's original 1975 performing site, known as Bethel Performing Arts Center.

In the winter the area is transformed into a magical wonderland with some of the best skiing in the North East.

When the fall comes, no one should miss the vibrant colors of a Pennsylvania Autumn or the chance to explore our vast wild life.

For a quiet romantic getaway or vacation for the adventurous family, Pennsylvania has a lot to offer. Why not make it your next vacation destination?

Other Activities: spinet piano, yoga studios, Himalayan Institute nearby, art and theater classes

Ski: Elk Mountain and Big Bear are both in reasonable distance
