Located in a luxury all-year round resort community of Masthope, two hours drive from NYC or Philadelphia.

Masthope community also offers beach with swimmable lake including boating, fishing, volleyball court, snack bar. That is not all : Masthope community also offers tennis and basketball courts, horseback riding, private access to Delaware river with picnic area. In the winter: downhill skiing, snow boarding, tubing at Ski Big Bear. Brand new lodge with fire places, restaurant, bar, game room, ping-pong, billiard and a stunning views of the mountains. The community is within a short distance from scenic towns.

Horseback Riding and Beach: Horseback riding for adults and pony rides for kids are available for a small charge ($10). Brand new private community facilities. Plenty to do. Beautiful relaxing community.

The house being rented is an eye-catcher. There are aren't any others as nice for this price. It is new and has all of the modern comforts.

The beach is on a beautiful lake. Like all facilities here, it is safe and secure. Community guests only.

At the pools, there are 3 restaurants. One of them is an outdoor Tiki bar/grill. The others are full service restaurants. It is a pleasure to visit and yet the prices are reasonable.

At the beach, there is an outdoor snack bar and grill. Otherwise, there are charcoal grills available at both the pool and beach for family use.

Of course, lifeguards and security personnel are in abundant supply.

The lakes are stocked. The kids will love fishing here. Adults may want to borrow one of the canoes or other boats to fish offshore.

Delaware River: Barryville is very close. So is the famous Robling Bridge. There are plenty of small restaurants nearby. There is a fine steakhouse in Hawley, which is 10 miles away. You must dress. It is a surprisingly fine restaurant for the area.

There are antique shops and plenty of outdoor recreation.

Outdoorsmen: Fishing is great nearby. We have private property on the Delaware River. The Lackawaxen River is a favorite with the locals. Two lakes are each within walking distance. The state park is 5 minutes by car. The reservoir is well stocked. So is the large lake which is 10 miles away in Hawley.

Whitewater rafting is big during the spring and hunting is popular in the fall. However, you must travel to the state parks. Firearm may not be used in the community or in the nearby vicinity.

Hope to see you there!

About Joe - Please send an email - I will get back quickly.

I am a New York professional working in the banking industry and living in the suburbs. I built a beautiful home in a community which I love. Unfortunately, I am often to busy to enjoy this little piece of heaven. So, I share it. It is for rent.

Why Joe - Please send an email - I will get back quickly. chose Delaware River Valley

We built this house to enjoy family vacations in one of the best kept secrets in the PA vacation region. This house is new and located on an elevated building lot. Views of the surrounding mountains and nearby wooded property are available from the front and back upper decks.

These decks are on the second floor with BBQ and other facilities. Most of all, the deer visit daily. They love Cheerios.

What makes this chalet unique

This community is the best in the region. Renting this house entitles you to pools, beaches, riverfront, horseback riding, outdoor sports, play grounds, gym and restaurants. All included with the price.

During the winter, the community becomes a ski resort. It is the third highest vertical drop in the Poconos. Ski School, ski rental, etc. It is all here. Woodloch Pines and the other communities all send their skiiers to our resort. If you stay local, you will have convenience which is not available elsewhere.

Also, renters in this home receive a 25% discount at the ski resort.

All of the other facilities such as the pool and beach are free. Others like horseback riding have nominal fees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us."

"We spent most of the weekend indoors and enjoyed the large open space."

"Cooking for all of these people was not an issue at all. We loved the experience."

"The beds were comfortable and it is so quiet at night. I got such a wonderful sleep."

"The views from the windows and the wrap around deck are really inspiring. Thank you for making my weekend such a pleasure."

"We will be back!"

Classy Pocono Retreat

  • 5 of 5

After some "campy" experiences in vacation home rentals, we finally found one that was everything we were looking for. From the sunny dining area to the warm, gas fireplace living room with sitting area, we found this the ideal contemporary home to unwind in. Its modern amenities and spacious, scenic layout made this experience wonderful for our family. Nestled just minutes away from the ski area, we found this to be just the right fit.

The bedrooms were perfectly sized and the kitchen was perfect for preparing a family meal. We just love the idea of a clean, modern vacation home located so close to skiing!! We look forward to our next stay with you.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented the house for a Ski Weekend. Luckily the weather held out and skiing was available this weekend. We had a great weekend. The house was just as it was stated in the details on Home Away. Would definitely look to return again next winter if not before.

Large Amazing Beautiful Home - Awesome Community

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for Christmas. We loved the experience. We have never staying in such a nice vacation property although we have rented houses previously.

The house offers large open spaces with lots of sunlight. We sat in front of the fireplace and out on the 2nd floor deck. Deer visited us every day so we tossed breakfast cereal to them. The house has plenty of beds and space. It is comfortable with everything needed.

We celebrated Christmas but this was not a good year for skiing. The ski resort was closed so we were a little bored. This has been the warmest winter ever!

We caused a little trouble I am afraid. My brothers caused damage to the sheetrock while horsing around in the game room. We also knocked over wine and candles in the living room so the rug needed cleaning. If that is not enough, a bat flew into the house. The owner arranged for a professional to remove it but we chased it out before he arrived.

Wow, this owner was very helpful! He understood our problems and tried to help.

I would definitely recommend this home and owner.

It is perfectly reasonable for the owner not to guarantee ski conditions or road conditions. I appreciate all of his help and regret that we caused his house some problems.

We will see you next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you for appreciating our vacation home. It is beautiful and offers everything needed for a full vacation. It is unfortunate that the ski resort was closed due to warm weather. We do appreciate your understanding. Some guests have demanded their money back because of the lack of skiing. That is very unfair since we clearly indicate that this is not our responsibility. We cannot refund anyone's money if we are not able to "re-rent" the dates. Thank you for making the best of your visit. Not everyone is as appreciative. Owner

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Location and size of the house are nice. Kitchen is not well stocked and the house is very worn. The carpet is stained and there were holes in the walls. The owner was very friendly prior to our arrival but unavailable since then. Still working on getting security deposit back. Would not recommend

Owner's Response: Dear "Disappointed Guest", We had multiple conversations. I am aware that the guests just prior to your visit caused a hole in the wall and stains on the carpet. As I explained, these things cannot be corrected during the 5 hour turnaround between guests. Since your visit, these issues have been addressed by our handyman. In addition, we also discussed the true source of your dissatisfaction...no snow. Yes, it has been a warm winter which resulted in disappointing ski conditions. However, I am not responsible for ski or road conditions. You cannot get a refund if the ski resort is closed. One more thing. You gave the house a "1" star. This is very unfair as we discussed. It is unfortunate that the rating system is a simple average of all ratings. Frankly, a more sophisticated system would discard outlying ratings. I hope that all future guests will consider the many "5" star reviews. This guests review does not represent our many satisfied visitors. Owner

Great NYE Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The place was great for 6 couples. There was enough room for us to sleep and plenty of room for all of us to hang out. Its very open and spacious which we all loved because we never felt cramped. We would absolutely rent this house again and the pricing was fair for the time we stayed there.

Owner's Response: We appreciate having you as our guest. This home is a special place for us but we are usually too busy. So we love to see others enjoy it. Thank you for appreciating the rental. Our vacation home is located in a beautiful ski community. The ski lift is just 3 blocks away. The public areas are all decorated for the holidays. This resort is great for skiiers of all skill levels. It includes a ski school, tubing, pro shop, rental shop, beginner hill and magic carpet (alternative to ski lift). For experienced skiiers we have intermediate and advanced trails in addition to a terrain park. During the summer this community is a summer resort with lots of activity. Beaches, pools, riverfront, lakefront, fishing boating, outdoor sports, horseback riding, gym and restaurants all make this a great summer destination too. In addition, the community provides lots of staff for administration and security. The buildings and grounds are all in new condition with plenty of services. This is a safe place for your family. Please share your experiences with your friends. We would like to have them as out guests too.

This house is located in a beautiful private community. The house is new and most of the community facilities are also. During the winter, it is a public ski resort. During the summer, it is a private vacation playground. Pools, beaches, outdoor sports, horseback riding, hiking, a gym, 4 restaurants and other facilities are located in the private community. Nearby are antique shops, small lovely towns and 2 rivers. The more well known is the Delaware. It is beautiful because the federal government strictly controls development.

The Delaware is full of fish and fun. Several companies nearby rent canoes and other watercraft. Fish are abundant and so are other wildlife.

There is a small waterpark nearby and other amusements.

The resort community Woodloch Pines is also nearby so guests may easily visit their facilities.

Other Activities: resort facilities are new and beautiful

Golf: Excellent golf courses nearby. These include Woodloch Pines Resort. Just 10 minutes away from the house.

Ski: Public ski resort. Never crowded. Plenty of lifts. Lines are no more than 5 minutes.

Family friendly ski resort. Excellent ski school. Beginner trails available. Great for kids.

Advanced trails also. Ski shop and rental shop are awesome.

Ski lift is 3 blocks from the house! You can walk or drive.

Restaurants are great as well.
