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.

Great Stay for Summer Family Fun!

  • 4 of 5

We were two families with 5 children between us and we fit very comfortably into the home. It was very clean and very well taken care of and . . . there was so much to do between the extensive movie collection, the game room downstairs, the fire pit/deck/patio area and the back yard with the creek and little bridge. The kitchen had everything we needed plus more and we loved cooking out on the grill! There were plenty of towels and usual stock items, really made a difference between working on vacation and enjoying our vacation. The area is fantastic, so close to so much for all kinds of interests. We were busy every day! Really want to give a shout out to Sugar Maple Stables!!!!! This is the PERFECT place to go horseback riding, the BEST horses and the Sweetest guide!!!! My kids and I had an experience of a lifetime :-) We would love to come back to this wonderful home, Brian was GREAT about sending us all of the details and specifics before our trip so we could plan and enjoy, this really was a great stay!!!!!

The only area of improvement we could see was the lack of air conditioning upstairs where it gets hotter than the rest of the house even with the fans. We stationed our resilient children up there so we definitely made it work! ;-)

We would love to come back in the winter to try some skiing!!!!! Thank you so very much Brian and Vincenzo!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Keri, Thank you so much for an amazing review. There really is alot to do in the Poconos, in both the winter AND summer. This summer has been exceptionally hot and we are aware of the situation. We are planning on getting air conditioning up to cool the bedrooms as fast as we can. We are both so happy your family enjoyed so much. Contact me directly and we will get you set up with a great rate for next time.

Stunning Well Maintain Property! Lots of Amenities. Like renting from family.

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Vinny were a pleasure to work with during the rental process. They made sure everything was in order and took the time to answer any and all questions thoroughly. Truly caring individuals who really care about making your family stay at their home a great and memorable one! The property was very well maintained, it was welcoming and had all the comforts of home with plenty of amenities. My family and I really enjoyed gathering on the patio cooking up some good food on the grill. Also, the downstairs "game room" was great. At night we sat around the fire pit for hours; great size for all to enjoy. Overall, the house was perfect! Plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the stay with comfort and peace of mind. Brian and Vinny are great; I would absolutely recommend this property and my family will definitely be looking to return in the future!

Beautiful lot, well maintained, very minor updates needed.

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our experience. The property accommodated our group very well and inconveniently located near several nice outdoor attractions. We would absolutely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Brian, thank you for the kind words, I do think we are "conveniently" located near several outdoor attractions. Plenty to do in the Poconos year round, right outside our door. To follow up, we are currently working on the updates you mentioned, we have been replacing windows this month and last, we layed down great new flooring in the master bedroom, and we are currently taking care of the small repair to the sink that had an issue while you were with us. We really appreciate your feedback, we work hard to make the house and property better each year for our guests.
