Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I recently spent a week at the Lake House. We are three generations, and we range in age from 8 to 82. All of us had a great time, but especially the kids. The house itself is extremely comfortable, with the communal rooms spacious and inviting. It is wonderful how the kitchen flows into the dining room which flows into the upper floor living room. There is another living room, actually a TV room, directly below it. Both rooms feature huge comfy leather couches. The lake is great, and we kept the paddleboat busy every day. Weather while we were there maxed in the high eighties, but the airconditioning worked flawlessly. If you go, be sure to take in the Bushkill Falls. Do not miss the town of Jim Thorpe, which is about 40 miles to the south. Jim Thorpe is a perfectly preserved nineteenth century town, and is a gem. In it, visit the mansion of Asa Packer. About ten miles to the east of Jim Thorpe is the small town of Lansford, where you must visit the No 9 Coalmine and Museum. You have never seen anything like it. Not to be missed. Re restaurants, the town of Tannersville is about 20 minutes away, and has the standard assortment of restaurant chains. But something special there is the Tandoori Palace, with wonderful Indian food to enjoy there or take out.

Our vacation

  • 3 of 5

The house is a wonderful size right on the pond with beautiful views and very peaceful! It did seem though that the house has been a bit neglected, and it appears a bit shabby. The dining chairs and couch in kitchen are filled with stains and the outside and deck need paint and grass needs a good cut. The amount of money that's required to rent this home is too much considering that it's not in excellent condition. However we did enjoy our vacation there and had plenty of room for our family!

Fun in the Poconos

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and spacious and nearby to the things we wanted to see and do. Very large and well-equipped kitchen area made it a nice and easy place for our family to cook and gather. The small dock and little beach nearby were used frequently. There were a number of little inconveniences about the house that made it less than perfect (e.g. the ice maker did not work, the garage door entry key pad did not work) but overall a nice house for our family vacation.

Great family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We just spent the week of July 4th at the lake house. It is our annual family gathering, we choose a different location each year and this year we landed in the Poconos. There were 13 of us, 8 adults and 5 children under 6 yrs. The house fit us comfortably with plenty of space for the kids to play. I especially liked the large island with comfortable seating for the kids in the kitchen. The kitchen had everything we needed with lots of silverware, pots and pans and dishes for our large crew.

The owner was very responsive when we had an issue with a paddle boat. He was traveling but contacted this maintenance person and the boat was fixed the next day.

We spent an awesome day at Camelbeach Waterpark, another day renting boats at Harmony Lake and saw a great fireworks show at Shawnee Mountain.

The lake near the house is a bit overgrown but the small beach at the boat launch next door was a great place for the kids to play and to try to catch fish with their nets. Our dog was with us and she loved being able to swim there everyday. We took several trips to the playground beach by boat; the area is clearer and everyone had fun playing and swimming there.

Thanks for a great family vacation!

Family reunion/getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect size for our group of 8 adults and 4 children. It was comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen was well supplied, efficient, and spacious. There are plenty of places to sit comfortably indoors and out. The porch is a real plus. The setting is beautifully rustic and feels very secluded. The lake is small, but we took full advantage of the paddle boats and canoe. This property was exactly what our family was looking for in a get-away/reunion. We would definitely consider a return visit.

Not bad, not great

  • 3 of 5

Overall the house was ok. Definitely dated from when the photos were taken. Still clean. Enough room for a large crowd. Large kitchen to have a lot of people cooking at one time. The real down side was the outside area. Definitely needed some tending to. We payed extra for the boat rentals and were very disappointed in them. The peddle boat was filled with water which we sank the first time we got on it. We had to drain it which was quite a project and luckily my uncle was there to help us. The canoe had splits on it we had to go buy duck tape so we didn't sink that, also. The location was good. The house is right next to a small beach excess that worked out well because you could not get in the water off the dock very easily. If you have children, the beach excess was necessary. It seemed as if the property manager did not check in on small details and it seemed as if the owner was not around at all. He was also non responsive when we expressed our concerns about the boats.

And last the trash has a cost. One last thing, Was the trash. It was not explained well on the note on the refrigerator. You have to buy vouchers per trash bags. $5 a bag!! If you are with a big group and eating all your meals there, you make a lot of trash. Overall we had a great time but that is because we don't always have opportunities to get away as an entire family and the house did give us that. And the neighborhood was great! Quite!
