Guestbook comments from the owner

NOTE: We are heading back to Pocono Pines, Lake Naomi in about 4 weeks, and I happened to take a quick recent peek at the site and realized that our review from last year never posted! I found that I still had it in my file so am sending it on to Thomas and asking him to post it for us since I obviously failed at it last summer….I am pretty confident that this review will apply to the experience that that we are looking forward to having there in just a few more weeks!...



I began last February to find a place for our family to gather to celebrate my 65th birthday-my gift to myself. There would be my husband and me, our 3 sons and their wives, and our 3 grandchildren ages 5, 2, 1. We would be coming from Buffalo, Boston, Philadelphia and Nashville and the place had to be big enough and pet friendly. Searching through Homeaway, which we had successfully used once before, I zeroed in on the Poconos and discovered Pocono PInes. It sounded perfect and I began emailing Thomas with all kinds of questions. He was quick to answer and extremely helpful and always addressed any concerns I had. All sounded perfect so I booked a week in July and was excited when July rolled around. And then we arrived. Would it be all that we anticipated? In a word -YES!! It was all that we had hoped for and more! My kids commented several times during the week on what a great choice it was! The deck was wonderful, the house size was great, the kitchen large and well stocked, and the amenities (dock, kayak, pedal boat, pool table etc.) were all great and utilized by all! We also thought the counter and sinks in every bedroom were terrific and the master bedroom bathroom -wow! Plus, we did take advantage of getting a temporary membership to the Lake Naomi CLub and found it well worth it. It was a very hot week and the kids and the adults had great fun off the dock in the lake, at the small sandy beach just yards away, or in the huge Lake Naomi pool!.

We had only one regret...and that was that the week together ended and we had to leave! However, we liked it so much we have booked it again for next summer (2012)! Throughout our entire experience, Thomas was always very helpful and very accommodating and he is very receptive to suggestions for making it even more wonderful. Thank you, Thomas, for offering this wonderful property through Homeaway! See you next July!

I wish it were my home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family wanted a weekend getaway on the water. A group of us separately searched homeaway and the majority of us individually selected The Red House! When we arrived we were blown away, the house was even more amazing in person! We were a party of 11 and there was enough room plus more for us all and we felt very relaxed and comfortable! The house is huge and nicely laid out with the perfect bedroom/bathroom layout and having sinks in every bedroom were an added bonus. The bedrooms were all big especially the huge master with deck access, so there were no typical arguments over who would get the smallest room haha. The open kitchen was huge and perfect for multiple chef's at the same time without having to take turns cooking. There were also lots of odds and ends in the kitchen just in case you forgot certain spices and condiments, they were there! The outdoors decks, both upper and lower were very nice and pretty much where we spent the majority of the weekend overlooking the water and private boat dock with boats for the house! There was no shortage of things to do here and the water views were amazing, perfect to watch sunrise/sunset on the private dock. We loved the house and had even decided after being there for the first few hours that we were definitely booking it again for our next trip! The owner Tom was very nice, helpful and a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. He showed me anything I wanted to know about his home, we thank you again Tom for our amazing weekend!

Wild about The Red House!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my mom's 80th birthday with a weekend in the Poconos. Family from all over came down to have meals with us in the Red House. We had 9 people staying at the house and comfortably entertained a crew of 26.

Here are some highlights:

- Sinks in every room - everyone commented on that.

- Lots of parking (we had 6 cars in the driveway at one point and there's an additional loop with more parking).

- 3 bedrooms on the main floor. 4 bedrooms in the lower level.

There are 4 steps down from the driveway and 4 or 5 steps up once in the house. Some of our guests had trouble with the stairs, but once in they didn't have to do them again until we left.

- POOL TABLE

- Deck - it was a rainy day, but that didn't keep people off the deck - lots of seating as you can see from the picture.

- Master bed - my mom wants to know what the brand and model was, she said it was the most comfortable bed she'd ever slept on.

- Sheets and towels included - no need to strip the beds afterward - I am a frequent HomeAway renter and this was a nice change for me.

Thomas and Leslie were very nice and responsive. Thanks for helping us make this a weekend to remember.

Perfect house for family and friends faraway!

  • 5 of 5

First of all the booking process is quick and easy - Thomas is a pleasure to deal with. The house exceeded our expectations from amazing lake views to plenty of space for everyone big or small. Clean fresh linens and towels were a great convenience. As were flexibility of early check in and late check out. Would love to come back to the Red House and highly recommend it! Thank you again for letting us enjoy your wonderful lake house!

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

Our large extended family was thrilled with this house! We spent a long holiday weekend here and were able to really enjoy everything the house has to offer. First, Thomas was extremely helpful and accommodating. He was very relaxed about check-in/check-out time, which helped us fully enjoy our entire stay and not feel the urgency to rush out the door. He answered questions quickly and thoroughly during the planning process. Second, this house is large and open. The pictures do not do it justice. With many smaller families combining to stay in one place, this house made it easy! We could all gather in the large sitting area upstairs or downstairs. It was really nice to have two central locations for playing games or being together if kids were sleeping in some of the rooms upstairs or down. Having a sink in each bedroom kept the bathrooms cleared of clutter. Each bedroom has plenty of space and nice storage to really be able to unpack and settle in. Linens are fresh and clean and there are plenty of towels, pillows, blankets, washcloths, etc. Finally, the house was well-stocked with more than just linens. It has plenty of books for adults and children. It has games, a player-piano, a pool table, a bar with mini-fridge, 2 TVs, DVD-player, wifi, comfortable & clean seating, etc. This house was our third try for a Fall getaway in three years and it was a perfect fit! We will definitely be booking again in the future!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family would highly recommend the Red House for vacation. We rented three houses for a family reunion and the other two could not find anything on the lake. We rented through HomeAway and Thomas could not have been more helpful. He was quick to answer any questions, fast to respond and provided a lot of useful information. The house was perfect on the lake - even included linens and was well stocked in the kitchen. Thomas even picked up our club packet and had it at the house for us when we arrived. Our family spent the week rowing the kayaks and pedal boat and added some rented paddle boards to the mix. Great get away!!
