Great clean place to spend some relaxation moments

  • 5 of 5

Pros - Great fishing spot - never caught so much Pike.

Cons - Make sure you have all guests in paper as community security is worst than visiting NASA

Stunning views and great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for our annual family winter getaway and it was absolutely perfect! Worked great for 2 families (6adults 3 kids) with downstairs playroom for kids and upstairs was perfect for hanging around the fire and having dinner as a family! Cabin was clean and views where picture perfect! Owner was great to deal with directly and super accommodating and helpful throughout entire process! Would definitely recommend to a family looking for a nice place to spend quality time together and still being within 25min drive to Camel back resort for lots of family fun! Great time and memories to last a lifetime!

Great Thanksgiving weekend at Big Bass Lake

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at the lake house for Thanksgiving weekend. My kids and their cousins had a great set up on the first floor and had fun exploring the woods near the house. Great views of the lake from the deck and from the living room area. Good restaurants nearby. Staff at Big Bass were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend for a relaxing getaway trip.

The property was better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean and very well maintained. We enjoyed the large deck with great views of the lake. The row boat was fun. The grill was high quality and we loved cooking on it. If you are looking for a quality place to stay to relax and enjoy don't pass this one by. The owner Don was great to deal with and everything went smoothly. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this home!!!

My family (myself, husband and three children-14,12 and 10) stayed for a week in August. The home is very clean and well maintained. All cooking, plates, utensils, etc. supplies are there. We had plenty of room and enjoyed the lower level for the kids (small ping pong table plus an air hockey table. A TV is also on the lower level-although limited channels compared with the LR TV).

The deck has a fabulous view of the lake! Adirondack chairs, plastic chairs, a grill and a picnic table are on the large deck. Additional picnic table in yard closer to lake. The view of the lake is also fabulous from the dining and living room. Aside from the lake, the home is set among trees so it's private and beautiful! We never saw/heard any neighbors (house is set back only one neighbor you would possibly see anyway). Every morning I walked and it was so quiet and lovely! Little to no traffic except for the wild turkeys I saw daily. There is a rowboat available for your use. In addition we brought an inflatable boat so we had something extra-we used it in the area closer to the dock but ventured out across the lake in search of fish in the row boat. Two fishing poles are in the home to use. We caught many fish every day! All were catch and release but had a fabulous time trying to catch a "whopper".

You can NOT swim in the lake off the dock (it's very "lake weedy" you would not want to) the community does have a beach area where you can swim (we did not go but it's at the main entrance). There is also a pool available at the community for an additional daily cost but we did not go--too busy enjoying the home, playing board games, fishing, boating! The WIFI worked well, cell reception was decent and TV in LR had numerous channels. The grocery store was 10mins away (Shoprite-Daleville--also had several other stores, restaurants in the plaza if needed).

We went to Camelback Beach Waterpark (25mins) one day and Jim Thorpe and Numer 9 coal mine tour(about 50mins) another.

We ordered the linen service for an extra $35 otherwise plan to bring your own sheets--towels (beach, bath and kitchen) must be brought with you.

This house was a dream! It's modern yet cozy-nicely decorated and everything worked perfectly! I miss it everyday and will definitely return soon! If you are considering a lake home vacation in the Poconos, I highly recommend this home!
