Awesome Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of 10 people. The house was immaculate, very spacious, and has everything you need. The driveway has enough space to park several large vehicles, the basketball court was awesome, and the porch had enough seating for 10-15 people. The house itself is in a very nice area, and there is a small convenient store just outside the community for anything you may need last minute. The dining room space was also nice, with a table that seats 10 next to a smaller table that seats 6. This house also has smart TVs everywhere, which was perfect for movie night. The game room was also an awesome addition. It had a poker table, pool table, foosball table, plastic darts, and a Wii in the den next to the game room. Overall, this house exceeded our expectations by a lot. We rent every year from different areas in the Poconos, and this is by far the nicest house we stayed at. Definitely would consider renting again for our annual trip!

Comfortable, clean, excellent Poconos getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a terrific week at John's house in the Hideout. While we could relax as much as we wanted - chill on the deck, watch tv on any of the many flat screen tvs complete with access to Netflix and Amazon - we had so many opportunities to be active. The beach and main pool were not overly crowded and tons of fun for the kids. The pool table and basketball court at the house were a huge hit, and the house is located close to a wide variety of activities. We went on a treetop adventure and zip line course, played mini-golf, spent the day on a boat on Lake Wallenpaupack, and visited the nearby Claws & Paws - all were within a 30 minute drive. Back at the house, we enjoyed cooking dinner or bringing takeout back home. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a great meal. We would have stayed another week! Only complaint... pool chalk needed to be replaced :-)

Beautiful, clean house with plenty of space!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend with close friends and family (7 of us in total in our 30s). The house was beautiful, well-kept, and we had plenty of room to spread out with room to spare. John is very easy-going, helpful, and great to rent from. The house itself has a ton of entertainment value. We loved the game room and the fireplace. Had a blast grilling and cooking together! Definitely will look to rent here again in the future!

Great house, so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Hello John,

Everything was great! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your wonderful house! We had four teenagers and they were never bored! With the pool table, foosball, game system, basketball hoop, card table and dartboard, they were able to pair up and have fun, and that is when we weren't at the beach!! We had a great time, and hope to come again, only for a longer stay.

We had wildlife in sight everyday from the deck!

On a side note, I have to tell you about this. Your neighbor across the road, with the red Dodge truck, I may have saved him from further damage to his truck. A turkey walked across the street and walked by his truck, saw his reflection I'm guessing and started pecking the truck!! I was cracking up, because he kept walking back and forth, pecking the truck. I could hear it hitting the chrome bumper, the red paint and the rims. I was sitting on the deck drinking coffee and walked over and tried to chase him, without scaring him.
