Perfect home with all the details!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience! The homeowner was very responsive with my email inquiries which helped kick off a great rental experience! The home itself was beautifully appointed and charming. And the details were all there! The kitchen included everything you needed, the linen closet was stocked with plush towels, and the firewood was plenty! This is a great home for a Pocono retreat because it's close enough to the ski resorts, but situated in a rural area that's nestled in the woods. PERFECT!

beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

House was absolutely beautiful, with all the amenities you could ever need! Had a slight minor mishap during our stay and Kathy was absolutely wonderful about it! The house was so homey and fulfilled our every need! The übermensch were a little expensive to downtown Stroudsburg to take advantage of the restaurants and bars easily, but yet we booked the house knowing it was in Bangor so certainly our own fault on that. Any season this house it definitely a catch to stay in!

Excellent vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures didn't do this place justice - such a comfortable and thoughtfully laid out and stocked house. If you have children it's even better. There's a wooden playset in the yard with a slide and swing and plenty of toys in house. A dollhouse with lots of furniture and accessories discovered in a closet was a highlight for our 3-1/2 year old daughter. Lots of new doors and windows to open and breathe the forest air. Couldn't recommend this place enough - we'll be back for sure!

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were coming back to PA to visit my family in Stroudsburg. I wanted a place without the hustle and bustle of Stroudsburg but was still close to get to places. It also had to be secluded - and this was it. One day I remember reading on the front porch and in one hour, only tow cars drove by. I like my quite time during vacation. :) The house had everything you could think of including toys for my 4 year old to play with and a swingset outside. You just need to supply food. The care taker, Kathy, is awesome to work with. She noticed on the day of our arrival that the grill needed a new grate. We went out to town to shop and when we came home it was there on the front porch for us to use. Also we forgot a very sentimental teddy bear for our daughter. We called her after returning home, and she went over and found it and put it out on her front porch (in a plastic bag to keep it from getting wet) for my friend to send back to us. The home was maintained inside and out. There was fresh firewood for the fireplace right on the front porch ready for you to use. Also wifi for my wife to use for her schooling.

Perfect house and area to stay

  • 5 of 5

I really loved the place. I will definitively come back, as the house and rooms were mint. We used the gas grill, and the tank was full. The deck was huge, and yard was huge enough so my 2 small dogs have space to run and play.

Perfect stay in my and my friends opinion.
