Bachelor Party

We had a great stay. The grill broke and the owners drove up the next morning to replace it with a brand new one. Extremely friendly and very accommodating!

Wonderful Experience for our Annual Golf Trip

  • 4 of 5

This was our annual golf trip and first time staying in a gated community. We stayed with 6 guys in the house and played at Water Gap Country Club & Glenbrook Country Club. The drive to the house had a lot of curves and turns to get to and narrow streets that could be dangerous at night.

We arrived at the welcome center to receive the passes to park the cars on the property and no problem. We enjoyed the space of bedrooms on multiple floors and the comfortable surroundings as the house was spacious. We brought our own food and bbq each day and lots of fun playing fooseball & billiards when we weren't having a good card game. The house has a bathroom on each floor and was quiet when we wanted to get some sleep. It was a great time and I recommend families as well to stay here as they have a lot of activities for the kids to enjoy near by.

Farrah the owner was a pleasure to deal with and very easy to speak with in setting up the trip. I like the communication that we had in case I had any questions and directions for the maintaining the house.

Will most likely continue our golf trip next year here as the convenience was great!!

Thank You!!

The pictures do not do this place justice!

  • 5 of 5

My family do not really get much time for family vacations and when the stars finally aligned we scrambled for a place for a nice ski trip. We stumbled upon this gem while scouring the internet. The place looked decent enough so we decided to book it. Long story short, the place was AMAZING. The pictures really do not do the place justice. I still remember my and fiance and my reaction when we turned the corner into the driveway. Our jaws literally dropped in awe. Inside the house was beautiful, clean, and cozy.

Our family arrived at different times so it was nice to see their shocked faces when they pulled into the driveway. The scenery was pleasant and very peaceful. The drive to Camelback was very quick and there were grocery stores conveniently located right at the bottom of the mountain. (This place is up in the mountains) The drive back to the house was always a delight because of the scenic view of nature. My family enjoyed the place so much we are actually planning another adventure out to these parts to view and experience the different amenities this place offers during the summer and fall. (This place has 3 ::THREE:: lakes and apparently a beach!)

The owner, Farrah, was wonderful to us! (She threw in a complimentary bottle of wine!) She was very helpful and very informative. Communicating with her was not a hassle at all. She responded promptly and always made sure it was convenient for me.

The only thing I would mention that might be a problem for some people is that this place is in a gated community, more like a town (This place is HUGE), and there are two entrances. For guests, like me, there is a back entrance or welcome center that you have to basically circle around the mountain to enter the community. There are hardly any cars so you don't have to worry about traffic. So that adds maybe about 10 minutes to your drive, but if you're from an urban area like the NYC area that extra 10 minutes may be a nice break to enjoy nature. You'll also find that there is a Sonic Drive-In and a Red Robin right next to each other at the base of the mountain where you would enter to get to the welcome center, another AMAZING PLUS.

All in all this place was amazing and my family had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this place. And REALLY the pictures are nothing compared to the place in person. If you do book this place I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
