Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is that this is the second year in a row we rented this house. It has a great layout for large groups, 5 bedrooms, and the game room/TV hangout in the basement is awesome. Also love the fireplace, woodburing stove and fire pit! Everyone we went with this year and last year really enjoyed it.

Brian is great to work with. Super friendly and responsive. Highly recommend staying here!

Thanks again!

-Jeff

Wonderful Family Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our early December getaway with 10 family members and two dogs was memorable and enjoyable. We used the indoor fireplace one night and the outdoor fire pit the next. The table extended to accommodate us for dinner, the kitchen items were helpful with enough settings for everyone, and the furniture and beds were cozy. Bathrooms were clean, the den had really big windows making it feel bright and open, and the access to the home from two driveways was great for loading and unloading the cars. Our highlight was hiking the Tumbling Waters Trail at the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC), which was challenging, but doable for everyone...and the falls were beautiful. We recommend the home and thank Brian and Vincenzo, who were responsive to our questions and needs.

Owner's Response: Michael, we sincerely appreciate your kind words. We are both glad the puppy is ok! Fall is definitely a great time to enjoy the Poconos weather and I'm glad your family was able to get out and hike the trails and enjoy the scenery. Looking forward to having you back soon.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful. My group of friends and I were able to spend an awesome weekend, kicking back, and relaxing. We came up to the house with about 15 people and we all had a place to sleep. The house was very warm, welcoming, and overall comfortable. We appreciate everything that the house and the home owner had provided for us, being 3 stories tall, the house has a game room with a pool table, board games, and a 60 inch tv. The patio by the fireplace was a great addition to the house, we were able to chill outside in the freezing cold, yet still able to enjoy ourselves by the warmth of the fireplace.

I want to give a huge thank you to the home owner, for being so patient and respectful. My friends and I owe you for a wonderful weekend experience. Awesome House! Thank you.

Owner's Response: David, we're so glad your group had fun. We wanted to thank you for keeping the house in order. With so many people in your group we appreciate the fact that everything was still in its place and there wasn't too much clean up. Enjoy the rest of your holidays!

Spacious, well equipped, clean and comfortable - perfect spot for family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, plenty of room for everyone to sleep and play and eat. The house is three floors and there is a bathroom on each floor which was extremely convenient for us because we had people of several generations with different mobility needs. The door to the downstairs could be closed off and the stairs going up were carpeted and easily visible - this was a great comfort to those of us with toddlers. There were 12 of us in the house, 13 if you count the dog, and everybody could spend time together or find a quiet place to relax, an ideal set up.

Beautiful outdoor area and a little creek running behind the property was a fun little romp for the kiddies and the pup. I really can't say enough good things about this property, it had everything we could ask for and then some. It made a large get together run a lot more smoothly then any of us anticipated.

Owner's Response: Jillian, thank you for the kind words. We are definitely set up for families, with plenty of room and a fun property. I'm glad we could accommodate your parents mobility needs, there are a few levels to the house but you can walk right in from the driveway with no problem. Thank you again!

Great house for an awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. We stayed with 3 adults and 4 children. There was more than enough space for everyone, we even had some bedrooms not used. The house was very well equipped with everything we could have needed. There were some minor issues prior to our arrival, which we were notified about and we're resolved quickly and efficiently. The air conditioner cooled off the entire house quickly. Our preteen girls loved playing pool and utilizing the board games available. Thank you for sharing your home! We would love to come back again!

Owner's Response: Christine, yes unfortunately the summer is a busy time and it's hard to get to issues that arise when they occur the day prior to your arrival. I wanted to thank you for your ease of communication and understanding while we got those issues fixed for you. We certainly stay on top of things but there are bumps in the road on occasion. We would love to have your family back soon.
