Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Having rented several properties at different Pocono resort communities, I have to say that this is unquestionably one of the best. Everyone in our group, young (and no so young), absolutely loved it!

The house was impeccably clean and in excellent condition. As others have said, the pictures really don’t do it justice. The kitchen had everything we needed (and more) and was large enough to accommodate several of us at once. The furnishings were ample and comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone to gather together for “family time” as well as to spread out when people needed a little space. From early morning breakfasts on the beautiful, private deck, to game time downstairs at night, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute there.

As for the community, the teens and young ones loved the heated pool with slides and kiddie area, and the grandparents appreciated the ample poolside seating with shade. There’s a playground adjacent as well as a small general store and a community center with an arcade, planned activities, and a restaurant serving everything from steak and seafood to pizza. Down the road a little way there’s a lake with a fabulous sandy beach, snack shop, and small watercraft (kayaks, canoes, paddle boats) that are available free of charge to enjoy. There’s also a stable where pony, arena, and trail rides are offered. We were impressed by the cleanliness and condition of all of the facilities and the friendliness of the staff. We truly didn’t want to leave and are already trying to find a way to make it back next year.

Finally, Gina was absolutely fabulous to work with. She was extremely responsive and not only answered any questions that came up, but went out of her way to offer suggestions to make sure our trip went as smoothly as possible. I have no qualms about highly recommending this property!

Would Definitely Stay Again!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely go back to this property and recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful home! It is even nicer than the pictures and well maintained. Both the first floor and basement are spacious areas great for big groups. Stocked with games/ping pong/pool table to keep everyone occupied. The location to Big Bear couldn't be any better - no more than a two minute drive to the slopes! Great stay for all ages.

Great family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family just got back from a Christmas vacation at this location. We were through impressed with the house and its location, although we went there to enjoy the skiing at Big Bear, there was no snow at all during our week,however that didn't hinder our wonderful time at Masthope. The house is comfortable,entertaining, all fully stocked with essentials. I highly recommended this place for families the game room is a lot of fun and keeps the younger ones busy.

Awesome for families!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a weekend trip (6 adults, 3 kids) and the house was perfect for all of our needs. Plenty of beds that were all very comfortable and a game room and loft that kept the kids busy all night! The house was literally a 2 minute drive to the mountain where we snowboarded and snowtubed all day. Gina was a great host and allowed us to check in early and check out late which matched our schedules perfectly. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great ski house at a great price.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful chalet was perfect for a weekend getaway. We loved the game room in the basement with Ping pong, Billiards, and Air Hockey. Great beds. The mattresses were wonderful! Loved the Summit Restaurant which is just a couple minutes away. Best of all our Dog, Rico was able to come with us and he loved it. Had a wonderful stay. Highly recommend!

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Gina was very responsive to any questions during the preparation for our trip. The two toddlers in our group got a real kick out of looking at the deer up close. The house looks even better in person than the pictures, especially the basement. There is a lot of natural light! Thanks Gina and Scott!
