Wonderful is an understatement

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a house for a getaway and as the tittle says...wonderful is an understatement. The house is and the surrounding areas are as beautiful as the pictures themselves.

When we arrived we were greeted with lots of information about the surrounding area, food for breakfast, and lots of small things that one might overlook when vacationing somewhere you've not been before. The finishing touch was the birthday balloon left for me. It was the perfect personal touch.

I would, will, and have reccomended this home to all of my friends, family, & loved ones. It is definately worth the drive out.

Cozy, Quaint, Clean, and Organized

  • 5 of 5

I was so fortunate to be able to have my family and I stay at this lovely cozy and quaint home. Upon arrival, retrieving the key was easy and they were lovely folks. Bonus: they lived right around the corner. Upon entering the home, it was so clean and organized! There was a binder filled with tons of information about the surrounding area and contacts. Appreciated that. Loved the fireplace, the french doors (event though we didn't open them), the kitchen and warm floors! I'll miss the bathroom floor being warm. The house was exactly like it was in the pictures. I've always been in love with the country french style and this captured it. During our stay, it snowed and the property managers came by and shoveled the driveway. Thank you! The only thing that we weren't used to was the smell of the water. I'm guessing it was well water? Never experienced that before. But other than that, everything was there and had a place. House was dog friendly and kid friendly. Such a lovely home. Would definitely recommend to others for a rental. Camelback was only 30 mins away. Everyone came back well rested and had a grand ol' time. Thank you for accommodating us! :)

Very nice house in the Mt. Bethel area

  • 5 of 5

As always, we were curious to see the home we choose via internet. We found everything exactly as described in the listing. Kathy was very helpful when she handed us the keys to the house. The house was well maintained, very clean and spacious. We stayed 8 (relaxing) nights and have absolutely nothing to complain about. The house is set in a quiet wooded area. We would always rent again when in the area.

Beautiful country living

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at Maureen's home for a week since my son was getting married in the Pocono's. The home was roomy, comfortable, and stocked with essentials until the next day when I was able to go shopping. Plenty of linens, kitchen ware and the master bedroom was spacious. Loved sitting on the deck and enjoying my coffee in the mornings. I love to hike and walk and there were so many opportunities in the area. Would recommend to others.

A lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely time at this private retreat in the hills of Pa. The house has everything you need. I loved that Colomcille is right around the corner.

There are endless activities in the area. Ski or snowboard at any one of five plus mountains in the winter, or check out the local water parks in the summer. We are less than 30 minutes from The Crossings, an outlet mall with over 100 stores. Area restaurants and shops are minutes away in Stroudsburg. Check out the new Mount Airy Casino, only 35 minutes away or the just opened Sands Casino which is just over 30 miles away. For the outdoorsmen (and -women) Minsi Lake and the Appalachian Trail are both under 5 minutes away. For lovers of racing & fast cars, visit Pocono Raceway, less than one hour away. Drive less than 30 minutes to visit multiple vineyards and wineries. However, for those of you looking for a more spiritual vacation, Columcille Megalith Park is right down the street, less than half a mile. We didn’t forget the kids either, The Land of Make Believe is only 30 minutes from our home and the Crayola Factory is only 40 minutes away.
