About Ron Morasse

My wife and I raised 3 awesome kids in Long Island, NY. We decided to build a house in the Poconos to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. We enjoy spending time as a family, whether it's kicking back and relaxing, playing games, horseback riding, or skiing.

Ron Morasse purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Ron Morasse chose Delaware River Valley

We choose to build in Masthope because of the wonderful ammenities. We have always loved the outdoors and all nature has to offer, and Masthope has lived up to all of our expectations.

What makes this chalet unique

We have enjoyed heading down to the Delaware where it is common to see Bald Eagles diving for their food, or perching in the nearby trees. We always get a kick out of the deer that come right up to the house and eat right out of your hand. Be sure to bring plenty of bread or carrots.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Morasse Family home during my children's 2017 winter break and we truly enjoyed each day. My sister came up with her 3 children too and we all had a great time. The house was perfect, plenty of room for each of us, and the house is simply beautiful and very very clean! Ron, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful, which made things much easier and gave us peace of mind! We will certainly be back again :)) Thank you Ron and family!

Great cozy gateway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely gateway between Christmas and New Year's (a party of 8). The location is beautiful and quiet. It snowed for 2 days but the roads were kept impeccably clean. The house itself is very spacious and comfortable. We particularly liked that each level had its own thermostat so everyone could find their comfort level. The community is pleasant to walk through and the friendly deer are a delight. The lake is also close by and very pretty, even during winter. Thoroughly recommend this property.

Fantastic house with lots of games

  • 5 of 5

I will list of out all the positives we thought was good,

- We were given code to enter the house in advance. So no need to wait for key or anything.

- The day we traveled (in February), it was snowy and crazy cold/chilly outside, but when we entered the house first time it was PRE WARM. The heater was ON and we were extremely delighted that we don't have to wait in he house in jackets to be warm.

- The house was neat and clean with beautiful hangings and decorative pieces.

- The best part of house was the loft on top floor & game room in the bottom. Really glad we chose this house.

- We were 13 adults + 3 children (2 toddler and 1 infant). Everyone had great time, kids enjoyed and adults enjoyed too.

- There were 4-5 TVs in almost each room/floor. Main floor TV had chromecast as well.

- The only thing that was missing from instructions was - Wifi password, but i just called owner and he gave password of Wifi over the phone.

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and surely will consider again to stay here sometime in summer.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. We strive to always have the house pre-heated or pre-cooled. Thanks for the feedback on the Wi-Fi password, I will add that into the information packet we send pre arrival.

Wonderful trip

  • 4 of 5

For our large group this house was perfect with plenty of group space on every level. Ron was easy to communicate with during the entire process from reservation to check in. Would highly recommend to others.

Peaceful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 9 children (ages 11-9 months) were very comfortable in this lovely house in the woods. The children had a great time playing on the rocks in the yard. The children loved seeing the deer in the yard and named all of them. We enjoyed both the pool and the lake. Nearby Fort Delaware was a great place to visit. We also had some great hikes at the Minisink Battlefield, the towpath and bridge area, and the Zane Grey property in Lackawaxen. Lots of good hiking nearby. Our only complaint is that the people at the office where we got our passes were not very friendly or welcoming.

Owner's Response: Very glad to hear that you had a great time and that the kids loved it. Now that you named the deer you'll have to let us know their names! Sorry to hear about the difficulty you had with the front office..
