Why Dave chose Poconos

We absolutely love the location of our home and enjoy going here with our two children, 6 and 3 years old, as often as we can. Its secluded feel is balanced with its proximity to the community center which is filled with activities and amenities including beaches, swimming pool and playground. Some days we just stay around our house and allow the kids to entertain us on the playset as we take in the beautiful views and fresh air.

What makes this house unique

We are conveniently located near Larsen Lake and a short bike ride to the outdoor pool. It's great to wake up early and take an early morning stroll around the community and take in some of the wildlife, including deer and wild turkeys! When the weather is cool, at nighttime we make smores on our outdoor fire pit or cuddle up by our indoor wood stove.

Great stay, would come back

  • 5 of 5

The four of us (2 adults and 2 small kids) had a great week here. As others have said, the listing is very accurate, the house was clean and inviting, and David (the owner) is responsive and reasonable. It's really close to two community lakes with kids' activities, the outdoor pool, and the rec center; a quick drive to the state parks; and within 30-60 minutes of a ton more activities. Plenty to do for a week, could have kept the kids entertained way longer than that. Plus the weather in the Poconos (in August) was way more comfortable than we expected -- I don't do well without A/C but was totally fine in this house and in the area.

And the backyard playset? So great!!!

Overall we had a wonderful time and are hoping to return.

Amazing House in the Poconos!

  • 5 of 5

The listing describes the property perfectly. The house was clean, well-maintained, and secluded. Our group enjoyed the large collection of VHS movies after our trip to Camelback (25 minute drive). Would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Poconos.

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house. The kids enjoyed playing on the swing set. The house is new and very clean. Everything is well thought out. Kitchen is stocked with cooking wears and utensils. Loved the video library too. We also liked community. They have outdoor and indoor/sauna pool. Lake is also near by.

Thank you Dave to sharing your home with us.

We can't wait to rent this house again!

Had a peaceful time in this wonderful home and community

  • 5 of 5

My first time renting a home in the Poconos and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the home and the community. It was short 2-hr drive from Philadelphia area so we hit Camel Beach on the way up (largest water park on the East coast an 1/2 hr from this house). The house is very clean and private with neighbors barely visible through the trees. Skylights and high windows let in lots of natural light during the day. Deer and wild turkey were a daily occurrence either in the front yard or on our quiet street. I brought a telescope which I had to take to the beach to get out of the trees but it was worth it because this area has DARK skies. Other nights I just sat out by the cabin's fire ring and stared up at the Milky Way.
