About Bud and Kay Macnew

I was born in Tokyo Japan. I met my husband when I was studying in Germany at the same university.

I have now 2 children who are happily married and also 3 grand children.

Bud and Kay Macnew purchased this house in 1994

Why Bud and Kay Macnew chose Pennsylvania

My husband used to come here for golfing since he was attending Fordham University in NY. Our favor vacation place has been always Poconos.

Finally we decided to build one instead of renting.

That how we got this beautiful comfortable house here in Shawnee.

What makes this house unique

Most of guests enjoyed that we have 2 living rooms( one we call a family room or den), as their children could watch own TV shows although each bed room has a TV or playing games etc.. while the adults enjoyed chatting with family or friends or watch their own show. Also, they liked the idea of having 2 bed rooms and a full bath on the 1st floor as some times they had older people who do not like stairs.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to thank you for letting my friends and I use your amazing

house! It was by far the best house I've ever rented in the

poconos!!! Your directions were very clear and i appreciate you being

so available for all my questions. I will definitely be looking to

rent from you again in the future as it seems many of your guests have

become returning friends.

Thank you so much

Accurate Descriptions & Even Better Than The Photos!

  • 5 of 5

We breathed a sigh of relief when we first opened the doors to this great House! It was clean, smelled good, and very open high ceilings with lots of sky light!

The house turned out to be very conveniently located a short walk to the slope of Shawnee Mountain where we watched the fireworks. Very close to a supermarket and other shopping. And there is a movie theater a few minutes away that came in handy during a couple hours of rain.

The bedrooms are divided between the upstairs and main level so that two families felt very comfortable.

Kay was easy to get in touch with as we planned our stay, and answered all of our questions. That was also very appreciated. Thank you for helping us to enjoy the Delaware Water Gap.

We will re-book this house in the future.

Owner's Response: George and the guests. I am so glad to hear that you had a nice July 4th weekend at our vacation house All what we want is that our guests to be comfortable and enjoy their stay, there. Although we are away from there ( 7 hours' round trip), we try to go there as often as possible to inspect the house before the guests arrive, because many things happen just for a few days guests'stay , you can't imagine !, and also the cleanings have to be inspected. It was a rainy weekend,, But you found something to do during the rain, that was good , because I was always sorry for the guests when I saw the rain coming down. Did you see wild animals from the deck ? We see often a deer family with 3 baby deer. You have been good guests. Looking forward to hearing from you, may be ski season ? Thanks again for staying . Kay

Great Pocono's Week - Again

  • 5 of 5

Dear Kay:

I just wanted to let you know how much we thoroughly enjoyed our week at your vacation home and, as you know, this was our second visit. The house, which is so well located was clean, comfortable, and well appointed with ample room for our group. We particularly enjoyed the size of the home and the large deck from which we were able to see lots of local fauna including deer, wild turkeys, ground hogs and a myriad of birds. For the last ten years it has been my pleasure to organize a fall golf outing for our group and I can assure you that staying at your vacation home has made my job, not only easier, but has for the last two years made a great getaway even better. We all look forward to our next visit.

Once again, many thanks.
