We had a blast. The place is great, sat around fire pit everynight and ate smores,and drank beers. Relaxed in the cool Pocono air. The deck and patio are gorgeous, we grilled and had family meals on the big table. Everyone was comfortable, plenty of blamkets and sheets. We played our acoustical guitars at night. Went to Lehigh Gorge and hiked the falls, went swimming in the river and cool lake and hung around the house being lazy and relaxed. WE plan to return soon.
This is my favorite spot to stay! Close to the skiing, Jim Thorpe, and much more. The house is always clean, and has a ton of space to move around. Love the fire place!! Highly recommend.
Warm, comfortable, quiet property that was perfect for our family. Would only have been better if dryer and dishwasher were a bit speedier.
The outside firepit was awesome and the inside gas fireplace and living room were very cozy. The kitchen had all the amenities you could want if you like to cook. This property is very close to the town of Jim Thorpe so the location was perfect. I highly recommend this house.
You can't beat what is provided for the price. I booked this as a 40th birthday getaway with my childhood friends and two brothers. We grilled, used the awesome fire pit and laughed about the good old days. The area is quiet and secluded. We took a short walk to check out the lake and beach. The view was spectacular. Mike's neighbor John even gave us a hacksaw to cut some wood. You'll find it all over the place. Nice deck and kitchen and dining room table served as an area to play some card games. I was also amazed at how many beds were provided in the home. My friends want to make this a yearly event now. Thanks Mike, I'll definitely be contacting you again.
It was a nice time! Very private and lake and pool are a block away.
Mike was very helpful with any questions we had prior to booking the property.
It was a fabulous girl weekend getaway. Lots to do in Jim Thorpe. The home was clean and inviting!
Looking forward to going back next year and planning on using the same home if it's available.
My great nieces loved it.
