Place was OK

  • 3 of 5

Property Manager was great and very helpful with attending to some issues that occurred with our stay.

Room for many people. Kind of old home but suitable enough for a large party.

Great place in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

For the past 15+ years, friends from Philadelphia who now live in or around their hometown (I'm in VA) get together for a long weekend to Ski, Snow Tube, play games, and of course...eat! We often find a place that can accommodate the group as it has grown from friends, to friends with significant others to, married couples with kids. While we have found good places in the past, we hadn't found one in which everyone had their own room, coupled with a dining room table that could match the size of our extended friend-family...until now. Ths place is ideal with its bedroom and bath count, along with easy access to the lake or to myriad places to ski and snow tube.

Awesome Pocono retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Large, spacious, well-kept house served myself and 8 friends for a fun-filled retreat weekend. Great location, close proximity to several outdoor activities (hiking, climbing, paddling) and overall a great value! Highly recommended!!!

Nice property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for a long weekend in the beginning of September. The house was clean and there was plenty of room for everyone. The owners were great! We could not figure out how to work the AC at first, but soon figured it out...they contacted me immediately to assist. We played volleyball at the nearby beach court and swam in the lake as well. Perfect for large groups who are just looking to relax. I would recommend staying.

Comfortable lake house for a large family.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great house for our group-a family of 18 people together for a long weekend. Rosanna was a very friendly and helpful host and the house had plenty of open space and bedrooms for all of us. The house is an older house and parts of it were dated. However, much of it had also been renovated, with new floors and comfortable, clean furniture.

We were a little surprised that there was no air conditioning but that was our fault, since it is not mentioned on the description. We were fortunate to have a comfortable weekend and never missed the air conditioning. The only other issue we had was that the screened in porch looked like it had not been swept and was covered leaves and spiderwebs.

There were no lack of activities in the area. We took advantage of boating and fishing on the lake, the beach and volleyball and basketball courts. It was also an easy drive to Jim Thorpe and the rail trail. On the whole, it was a wonderful place, and if I could have given 4.5 stars instead of 4, I would have done so.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the valuable feedback, really appreciated! We just installed AC in the house two weeks ago. Also we addressed sun porch cleaning issue to our cleaning company to make sure they cover that area thoroughly. Thanks again for staying at our lake house and hope to see you soon in the near future!
