You will enjoy your time spent in this uniquely furnished and decorated Euro-style home. It's not an investment property, but a well loved home and that feeling is conveyed throughout. Nestled into the woods, we offer cozy charm and privacy plus lots of wildlife and hiking trails. Ceiling fans are located throughout the home. The refrigerator is stocked with common condiments. We also keep a binder with directions to nearby restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, etc for your convenience. While we do not allow smoking inside of the home, both decks are equipped with ashtrays. The rear deck includes a retractable Sunsetter awning so you'll never have to smoke in the rain. Evenings tend to be cool even in the Summer months. Be sure to bring a light jacket/sweater

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful Time.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year vacationing at this lovely home with our teenaged grandchildren. The community grounds, amenities and house are absolutely wonderful. The wildlife too is most enjoyable to see and photograph. Quiet and peaceful retreat if you wish to simply lay back and relax but the option to travel and visit a variety of venues is within a short travel. Camelback, local Zoo, SteamTown, and local eateries to name a few are within reach. The lake, pool and canoe were enjoyed by all. We will return again next summer.

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Donna is super nice and very easy to work with. The house itself was lovely and even more spacious than the pictures show on the site. It was perfect for hanging out and close to the mountain for skiing & snowboarding. Would love to come back in the fall or summer as I'm sure it's beautiful then!

A wonderful place that feels like "home".

  • 4 of 5

Our appreciation for this property started when our host called to let us know we could arrive early which allowed us to get settled and shop before the rest of our party arrived. This home is welcoming and comfortable and the sunroom and porches wonderful places to relax. When we discovered a problem with the grill caused by previous renters, our hosts were quick to respond and fix the problem. We loved the quiet, the wild turkeys, the deer that roam about. We have rented homes in many locations over the years and this ranks among the best we have experienced. Should we decide to return to the Poconos in the future we would definitely check the availability of this property first. Thanks Donna and Hans for allowing us to be your "guests"...we had a great time!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed yourselves. It is a beautiful and peaceful place. You and your group were such wonderful guests. You left the house looking the way it does after a good cleaning. Unbelievable! I yelled for Hans to come into the house right away. He was speechless. We both appreciated it so much! You were wonderful with the grill situation. Very understanding and gracious people. I do hope you come back and would highly recommend you as a renter.

The sonnenberg house was clean. Had open windows to see the nature all around you. Multiple deer sightings. Access to the lake and pool was great. Direct access to trails in the forest. Loved this place. A great time. We had 8 people comfortable.

Absolute Gem - So happy we found this home

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent the entire 2015 Memorial Day Weekend at this house, and it was phenomenal. We are all basically city dwellers and were looking for a serene, country getaway. The woods and wildlife were fantastic. We had SEVERAL deer come right up to the back deck. Swimming in the private lake off the center peninsula island was my favorite part. The home was clean, well-maintained, cheerful (huge family room had sunlit windows all around). All the modern technology you'd want: like fast WiFi and an HDTV =) Surrounding stuff to do in the Poconos was awesome too. Owners were a delight to deal with. Would recommend and can't wait to go back.
