Fabulous rental for week or weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house with 2 other couples. The house was absolutely perfect. Plenty of room for 6 adults. The rooms were a perfect size. 2 of the 3 rooms lead out to a balcony overlooking the lake. Hot tub is clean and well taken care of. The Pool table is perfect for relaxing at night. The Fireplaces are gorgeous and keep the downstairs warm. Walking into the house you can tell it is well maintained and that it is extremely clean. You receive a warm and homey feel while staying here. Very close to Jack Frost (15 mins). White haven diner, liquor store, food market 3 mins away. Plenty of restaurants just minutes away with great food. Owner is extremely polite, friendly, and accommodating. The only down fall is having to leave and head back to reality. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who wants to recharge and have a relaxing getaway. I will be returning in the fall to attempt some white water rafting in the area!!

Will not stay here again

  • 1 of 5

This house was perfect, however the owners were quit rude at the end of our stay. I rented this house the end of the weekend back in February with some close friends. We had a wonderful stay. Pool table was well maintained and ready for use. Fireplaces made it very homey. Some disappointments were that the rooms were quite small but it did its part. Hot tub was nice but only for like 2-3 people and not seven and didn't get hot at some moments. Shower was a little weak in pressure. It was very icy walking to and from the house which they should've taken care of before we arrived since someone fell. We were very satisfied with the house being it's our first time and had a very relaxing stay. However, a month later I receive a letter in the mail stating they are withholding half of the security deposit which we were all appalled. They have some nerve and stated such absurd accusations of how we left the house; we would never breach a contract since we are all mature adults. I wonder if they do this to everyone and accuse them so they can keep extra pocket money? We WILL NOT stay here again and rent elsewhere for our next stay.

Owner's Response: As owners of the property reviewed please allow us to reply to the insinuations and allegations of this guest. May we point out as stated by this reviewer the house was perfect. This house is and always was spotless with everything in working order at check-in. Either one or both of us are always present at check-in; making us available for any questions or comments on the house. No complaints or disappointments were voiced either at check-in or any time during their stay. HOT TUB: Pictured at site, seats four (4) and was never meant or advertised to seat seven (7) was clean and in proper working order. Instructions are always given to our guests with respect to its operation. If instructions are disregarded the computer does not function properly, thus possibly throwing off the water temperature. DRIVE WAY AND PATH LEADING TO HOUSE: As we were in the midst of several snow storms both were maintained, shoveled and salted right up to the time of their arrival. WATER PRESSURE: Never a problem in all the years house has been rented. Now to the crux of the complaint - holding of 1/2 of security deposit. This is a non-smoking house and advertised as such. At check-out, ashes were observed on the coffee table by both me and our cleaning personnel. The hallway walls and stairway leading to the second floor had been freshly painted a week before this guest arrived. Upon departure there were numerous black marks the entire length of the wall going to the second floor. Scrubbing the walls did not alleviate the marks and the entire area had to be re-painted. Even with the damage to the walls and smoking, as a courtesy to this guest 1/2 of the security deposit was returned to her. We find it ironic that no problems existed with this rental until partial security was withheld; even though we make ourselves available to every guest. Security was returned ten days after departure. Most importantly, to accuse us of being dishonest and intentionally withholding security is to say the least malicious and inflammatory. We have never nor would we ever contemplate taking such action. In the years we have been renting our properties our integrity has never been questioned. Many of our valued guests have repeatedly rented year after year from us. We would assume that speaks for our honestly. In closing, we respectfully ask that when making a decision about our homes that you read the 5-star reviews on both the homes and us personally.

Great Place to Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home. Very clean and inviting. The owners were there to great us, making sure the house was nice and warm, and gave us a quick tour to be familiar with everything. Not being familiar with a hot tub, we must have pushed a wrong button and it wouldn't warm up for us. When we called Mike and Marie, Mike was over within the half hour to fix the issue. There were 4 of us who stayed that weekend. There was plenty to do and plenty of room of all of us. We will definitely stay there again and would highly recommend this house.

Thank again Marie and Mike!!!! We had a great time!!!!

Pocono Perefect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The owners are amazing people. I can't stress that enough. My wife and I went for our honeymoon, and 3/4 of the way there our vehicle caught fire, the owners PICKED US UP so we could rest for the night and take care of the rest in the morning. The house was clean, pool table is well kept, every kitchen utensil you might need is available, hot tubs hot, cold waters cold. Their attention to detail is fantastic. They even got us a bottle of wine to congratulate us on our marriage!

The grill looks to be 10-12 years old, but they have kept up with the maintenance of the unit, no rust, spotless inside, even the ignitor has been replaced a few times, but it works. Those NEVER work on older units. The people who own this house truly want you to enjoy your stay, and it shows.

Bedrooms are smaller than I expected, but large enough that we shared a single room with clothes, shoes and all our amenities for a week with no proiblem. The front porch swing became my haven in this quiet little neighborhood, and although we didn't use the boats, honeymoon remember, they did look to be in excellent condition, and very well maintained.

My new wife and I have already decided to return next year for another honeymoon, This time we'll rent a car.

This house is a little ways from everything, but a half hour drive will get you anywhere. There is a multitude of things to do and see in the area, we ran out of time ourselves. And the bakery in town is killer, from breakfast muffins to pizza, they do it... well.

If you are thinking about staying here, do it!

To "Owners": Thank you very much for all your help and consideration, thank you for the house, it was beautiful. Thanks for the wine, first wine I've ever had that I actually liked. Just... Thank You.
