My family and I enjoyed out stay tremendously. The house is lovely and well taken care of. All the amenities that where stated were there and in good working order. The lake is beautiful and we had a great time. I highly recommend this property.
Planned a family weekend getaway and this home did not dissapoint. My kids enjoyed feeding deer and geese by the lake as well as family bike rides with bikes provided we did not get to enjoy the lake Soo much because of weather but the view is simply amazing !! Karen def provides everything for your family to enjoy each others company from bikes and board games to fishing and and movie nights.. I was happy to see everyone talking and playing instead of texting and video games lol Thank You Karen
I booked this property at the last minute as a quick family getaway and I was amazing pleased with the results!! Looking at the pics drew my interest, but staying there made my family happy. The kids had a ball with their choice of bunk beds and the house all around is cozy and modern at the same time, along with lots of light, with lots of skylights to enjoy the stars. You have all the necessities available. The back porch overlooks the lake which will be beautiful in the Spring I'm sure. We will be back to enjoy that view and tranquility. Everything was easy and simple in reserving. Thank you Karen for allowing us in your home and making feel like ours. Perfect!!
I sit here with my mug of coffee enjoying a beautiful sunrise over the lake. This has to be the best vacation spot in the Poconos. The views are spectacular and the home is spotless with everything you could need or want -the owner went out of her way to make us feel welcome. I'll be sure to make this an annual vacation spot!
We stayed at this house for 5 days in mid-August. As others have noted, the picturesque lake and boats (2 kayaks + 2 rowboats) are the big plus of this house. Boating around the lake we saw several deer, which did not appear to be scared of us. If you throw some bread to the geese and ducks that come to the grass by the house, they will be your best friends! As stated, the place is very tranquil and serene -at night you only hear the crickets and in the morning the birds.
Overall the house was fine - plenty of room for a family of 5. The internet connection was excellent though we didn't have cellphone reception (which wasn't so bad since it added to the tranquility of the place).
There was one main issue which affected our stay - the dishwasher didn't work. The owner said to slam the door but that didn't help (and I wrote her that the problem continued). I understand that she has now taken care of fixing that. The other minor problem was that there was very little closet space for our clothes - the closets and dressers were filled with blankets, and other items. We also had to take down the microwave and put it on the counter. For some reason, it was on top of the refrigerator and connected (as if one could use it that way!).
The location was excellent. Tobyhanna State Park is located nearby and there is a very nice beach there (no admission fee) as well as hiking paths. A Walmart is about a 15 minute drive. The Crossings Outlet Center is a 30 minute drive away and there is a tree top adventure park near there for those so inclined. For those who like to bike, there is one usable adult bike (another one is flat) and many children's bicycles.
All in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for those who love nature.
Loved watching the sun rise over the marsh and lake. Completely clear view of the sky at night for star gazing. Enjoyed the kayaks and rowboat around the perfect size lake. Two herons, geese and many deer kept us entertained in the marsh and yard in front of the house. We took advantage of the basketball and tennis courts, a three minute walk away. Would definitely return
