Perfect for our family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Was exactly what we were looking for! The rustic feel with modern amenities, including a state of the art jacuzzi, was great for us and our kids. Very comfortable stay!

The property was better than expected and had everything we would ever need!

  • 5 of 5

The Kegelman’s cabin was amazing! The space was lovely and gave you a true cabin feel. It was also only a short drive to the mountain and had decent amenities in the area. The hot tub was a perfect complement to the house and served us well after snowboarding all day. Natalie was incredibly responsive and very helpful. We had absolutely no complaints at all with anything involved with this stay. It exceeded our expectations in every way and this cabin will always be our first choice when staying in the Poconos!

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here! The home was absolutely perfect and was just what we needed! The hot tub was a dream! Wish we had more time to fully enjoy the lake and the kayak we could have borrowed. Natalie was very considerate and was available, although we didn’t have any problems at all! Thank you for letting us stay here!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend and had a great time. Plenty big enough for our group of five and would easily fit a group of ten. Relaxing, cozy, clean and very well equipped. Hot tub was great for everyone and enjoyed the fire pit. Owner was very easy to work with and the instructions for everything are very detailed. Will stay again.

The whole atmosphere was lovely and romantic.

  • 4 of 5

The house was cozy and welcoming. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub. The property was secluded enough with lots of privacy. The lake was beautiful. The choice we made when we rented this house was perfect for our anniversary. The only things we found lacking were the pans were warped and difficult to use, unable to get the stereo to work, and no pot holders. Other than that we had a blast and would stay there again!!! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. thank you James and Natalie.

Beautiful log cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in the log home. The Kegelman's were wonderful hosts and were always there when we had a question. The Cabin was rustic yet very clean. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys the outdoors because there is so much to do. Truly a great weekend.
