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.

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.

Cozy and clean, just like our home

  • 5 of 5

The weather forecast was for a heavy snow on the day of our arrival and Donna, the owner, was so kind as to offer me to come a day earlier at no charge. I wasn't expecting such a warm-hearted gesture. The house was in a gated community with tranquil surrounding and lots of trees. Snow covered everything and was so pretty. The house was very clean, cozy and warm throughout. We wanted to stay inside and enjoy a peaceful time with friends and this place provided just that. I'm sure that there are other nice houses, maybe even better ones. But, what sets apart this place from the rest is the owner. She is not greedy like so many other renters whose focus is only on making as much money as possible by taking advantage of situations. I searched many places and almost all of them were asking way over the listed price on the website-so much so that it made me angry. Some were worse than others. The price was beyond reasonable, to a point of robbery, just because of this being a holiday period. I'm glad to see that there are still down to earth kind of people. We stayed 2 nights and we will definitely come back when time permits. Hope this review helps somebody looking for a getaway place. Donna, don't change and you'll have a steady of people renting your place.

Gorgeous and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home sits back in a gorgeous wooded lot with deer you can view right off the deck. The development was full of bucks that were so calm its like they were tame so for the hunters such as my husband he was in heaven. The home itself was immaculate and is 1/2 hour away from everything including Mount Airy Casino, Camelback mountain, Outlet mall, horseback riding, etc. This time of year was absolutely breathtaking so the drive was enjoyable! Awesome customer service-professional but very easy to communicate with and everything was done in a timely manner! We highly recommend and definitely plan to return ourselves!
