About Barbara and Menno Good

We're retired and always dreamed of owning a lakefront home. We are grateful to realize our goal!

Barbara and Menno Good purchased this house in 2013

Why Barbara and Menno Good chose Blue Mountain

It only takes us an hour and five minutes from the Lansdale interchange of the northeast extension of the turnpike. For those living near this interchange, friends and family can easily come for day visits during vacation.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing deck chairs watching geese, ducks, birds, deer, an array of rhododendron and mountain laurel around our home and throughout the community. Lake sparkles with ripples most of the time (unless covered with ice and snow in the winter). Many hummingbirds and other birds and wildlife. The open floor plan with lake views from the great room, kitchen, master bedroom is breathtaking. It's wonderful watching the fire in the fireplace (electric insert). The full basement is 2110 sq. ft. is a game room with skee ball, foosball, air hockey, pool, ping pong, regulation shuffleboard, and a number of other games.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is such a beautiful house! We enjoyed the view of the frozen lake, and the deer each morning as they slipped and slid across it. Spent all of our time tubing/snowboarding around Blue Mountain--we had an amazing time! Thank you so much!!!

I would like to thank you for letting us rent your home. We loved it, all of us. It was very spacious and clean. Ample bathrooms, the view of the lake, the deck, the games in the basement, the large dinning table was a plus for us for we like to play lots of card games, the kitchen was well equipped we love cooking. It was a great stay and Ms. Barbara was always avaliable if we needed anyting during our stay. Great place and we will defintely return again!! Thank you.

Bad

  • 1 of 5

Had the worse experience ever! When you get in the house make sure u leave the house in the same condition like nothing is touched. Otherwise she will charge you for not putting the dishes back, not putting the pillow back or the chair anything to not give you your deposit back. Be careful.

Owner's Response: We allowed the group to rent the house even though they were under the age of 25 years old. It took us days to clean up after them. The game room was in shambles, the living room swag curtains had been pulled out of shape and had to be taken down and washed, ironed and put back, lamp shades were broken and put back with aluminum foil, dishes all over the kitchen counter, refrigerator with food left on every shelf, blankets pulled out and left in a heap. Our guest limit is 8, but they had extra people come without approval as evidenced by the chairs around the dining room table and dishes left out. The kitchen tablecloth had spaghetti stains on it and evidently people were eating on the hearth which had food and beverage rings on it. I do believe that the group did not read the information sheets I forwarded to them before they came where I stated that the cleaning fee was for 3 1/2 hours cleaning and that anything more than that would be deducted from the security deposit. I think young people do not have the understanding of how much time it takes to clean a house. We had allowed young people to rent a few times in the past and they were wonderful, but this time it did not work out. It is very seldom I have to deduct from the security deposit.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful! The view of the lake in the morning when you wake up is just breath taking. We went the past weekend for a snowboarding trip, only 30 mins away from Blue Mt Ski (failed, because there was no snow), but we made the best of it. The house is wayy bigger than it seems on picture. It was clean, fully furnished, equipped with all cooking necessities. My friends and me will definitely come back during the summer :) Thank you Barbara!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable home. Much more spacious than the listing description and photos indicate. We had a relaxing stay. Very peaceful setting and quiet neighborhood. No traffic noise at all. Very easy home for two sixty-somethings and one 80-something to get in and out of and move around in. Our cell phones worked fine even with this home being quite a distance out into the country. The Wi-Fi worked fine for our laptops. Cable TV quality was excellent with a full range of channel choices. We came to sit and relax, and this home was perfect for that. The home is quite some distance from shopping and popular Poconos outdoor attractions. (This is the only reason we can't give the home five stars.) The owners were very responsive and timely to questions and in communicating with us in general. (Special note: We drove to Nazareth, PA one day to take the free tour of the Martin Guitar Factory. Fantastic! Not to be missed by adults or kids! And we don't play the guitar and are not employees of the company.)

Beautiful lake house has everything a house needs.

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property is accurate, the place is beautiful, clean, cozy and well equipped, has everything a house needs. The owners were great, helping and resolving any issue in seconds, they provide a list of indications to help customers so you know what to find, where to find it and how to enjoy the house since minute one.

The porch is perfect for adults to enjoy the view and the quiet atmosphere while the basement is fantasy land for the kids. We will definitely repeat visit next time we get to Pennsylvania.
