This property is great! Right on the water with beautiful views. I loved waking up in the master bedroom and looking outside at the lake. This house has everything- location, space, views and tons of amenities. My kids loved the game room and spent the whole week fishing off the dock. The owners were very kind and helpful. My family and I had a great week outdoors. Highly recommend!!!

Eagle's Nest a Beautiful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything for our large group; enough sleeping places, a kitchen with all the essentials, boats for enjoying the lake, internet for those that want it, and views of the lake through autumn leaves -- just like being in an eagle's nest.

Simply HEAVEN: More than we could have even hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had a very stressful year, and with our parents "on the mend" from various illnesses and surgeries, we weren't even certain we could TAKE a vacation this year. When everything sort of stabilized, it was nearly August already. We knew we DESPERATELY needed to get away, but thought most great places would be booked at that late date. Then we lucked out and found THIS house and grabbed the last week available! Nothing less than a GODSEND. We booked without ever having seen it. When we walked into the house, and looked straight through to Lake Fairview: I was almost in tears: FROM RELIEF! We ran around the house checking everything out, and we were just THRILLED. The house has SO much character, and so many fabulous "spaces" to enjoy. The views of the lake are nothing less than astounding. The house, large and immaculately clean, has clearly been extensively "updated", but retains a "rustic" cozy charm thanks to the thoughtful and lovely decor...just terrific, right down to the soft fleece throws provided for our enjoyment pleasure! We LOVED the layout of the house. A fabulously outfitted kitchen made my life so much easier...The bedrooms were so spacious: My daughter had guests stop by for an overnight, they were AMAZED at the size of the house and that they "got beds!" We all enjoyed the game room downstairs, though getting my butt kicked at ping pong and foosball got a little old for me, lol...We had fires in the main fireplace, it was amazing on the terrifically chilly Pocono nights. The location couldn't be better: Fairview Lake is a lovely, more "intimate" lake than Lake Wallenpaupack, which is RIGHT up the road. So we experienced the BEST of both worlds: Enjoying canoeing and kayaking on Fairview Lake, (boats provided by our gracious hosts!) and Wallenpaupack right up the road for any water sport you can imagine! From the screened porch (where I had my coffee every morning!) to the gazebo overlooking the water, to the deck OFF the screened in porch...knockout views and beautiful breezes were EVERYWHERE in this house. Kurt and Maura were incredible, efficient, communicative hosts: I hope we can sneak up to the house this winter and sample some wintertime fun as well. I would not hesitate to rent this home again, and I don't have to "tell" many friends about it: I posted photos every day of our vacation of Facebook, and DOZENS of friends and relatives want to know: WHERE IS THAT HOUSE!? Thanks again, Kurt and Maura. :)

Amazing sunsets

  • 5 of 5

This home is beyond beautiful. When you walk through the front door the view of the lake takes your breathe away. The home is perfect. Has a really big kitchen and a table that sits many. There are so many different places to sit and look at the lake! An enclosed patio. A wrap around deck on the top floor. The bedrooms are all huge and so comfortable. Big bathrooms too. Than you go outside and has a gazebo with a table and chairs and more chairs in front of it where you can sit and watch amazing sunsets. You can fish off the dock or swim ou to the swim platform. There is a canoe and kayak. The home is great and the ownes are so helpful and kind. Will rent this house for years to come I hope.

Great place to stay with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We spent our new years weekend at this place and it was one of the best places we've stayed in - ever! Great location, right at the edge of the lake with beautiful view. Clean house, awesome game room and the owner was great too. He answered every questions and took care of any concerns we had right away. The place is about 45 mins from camelback mountain where we did our snow activities and about the same distance away from an awesome thai restaurant where we had dinner after skiing (10 miles from camelback).
