About Ruth & Steve Haines

Our family currently lives in Jamison, PA. We have 5 children and thoroughly enjoy spending time at our beautiful vacation home in the Pocono mountains! We love skiiing, kayaking, laying on the beach and relaxing in the hot tub! The deer come up to us on the deck and will eat out of our hands if we are very gentle and quiet! Our 16 yr old son hangs out in the game room playing Playstation and Wii! We have loads of board games, DVD's, CD's and books for you to enjoy during your stay. We try to keep the kitchen stocked with some baking essentials, condiments, spices, coffee and tea. We welcome phone calls at anytime with any questions.

Perfect long weekend up the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house for four days, three nights in June of 2016. We booked this vacation a few months ago and Ruth was extremely responsive to emails and texts. We arrived on Friday evening and were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. The house was clean and tastefully decorated. Everything was in working condition. The hot tub on the deck was a nice touch! It easily fit four of us in there at any given time and it was nice to relax in it after a long day running around after the toddlers! The kitchen was well-equipped. This house was in a perfect location as well, close to everything. We are looking forward to booking again next year! Thanks!

Fun Relaxing Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Overall the house was great! We used the recommended person "Kerry Clean" to provide linens and towels for our stay. They were in he house upon arrival and all freshly sealed and clean. The house had plenty of space for the 5 adults and 2 children during our stay. The house was clean, nicely located, and easy to access. The hot tub was also a nice touch. There was also 3 bathrooms which made getting showered and dressed a breeze! There is not many restaurants in the area, however the 2 we went to were great. I would recommended Big Boulder Tavern only 5 mins from the house and Van Gilder Jubilee Restaurant about 15 minutes from the house. The food was great at both locations. I would also recommend going to AHARTS for food/drink shopping, as it is just like home and has good prices and large variety. It is about 12 minutes from the house. I would also recommend bringing toilet paper, garbage bags, and paper towels as the house did not have any when we arrived, however we assumed this and brought our own anyway. The house location was safe and there was community security that patrolled the development day/night. Locals were very nice and helpful. I would recommend this rental to others Thank you very much Ruth and Steve!

A bit of a let down..

  • 3 of 5

Not the same experience as a year ago.. paid more and got less. No WiFi, faulty tv remote, no music player. A bit disappointed overall, but still had a good time.

Owner's Response: Our home was listed higher this Peak Season as I realized during my research that we were waaayyyy underpriced for December seeing other listings of same quality home from $333 - $950 per night in our area. Last year this renter was able to rent at $257 per night, this year we raised rates to $505 per night. Renter asked for discount so reluctantly, I rented it at $362.50 per night (I never normally give discounts, the price is the price). We replaced all the batteries in the t.v. controls just 2 weeks before so not sure what happened there. We removed the music player as it was an older CD player and didn't think it was of much use anymore. I did feel badly about the wifi. I called the cable company upon renters notification of issue and they said there was no problem with the signal in the area (so normal cell reception was available). I then called the router company and they said they performed a system wide update which rendered our only 2 yr old router ineffective! I ordered a new one and had it shipped within 3 days, so wifi is even stronger than ever. I also informed renter there was a direct wire USB cord available there so they could plug laptop in directly if need be.

Great Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting with HomeAway and Ruth & Steve made the process easy. The property was amazing and there was plenty of room for the 5 of us. The hot tub was a plus!! I would definitely stay at this property again.

Cute house - great for a girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

Very cute and well kept house. We had more than enough space for 9, and the entire process of renting was a breeze. My only reason for 4 stars was there was definitely an ant problem ( which I'm sure is common in this wooded area), but the owners had already had an exterminator out previously and I am sure will be following up with them again. The kitchen also did not have a couple basics such as salt or hand soap, so those are things you may want to consider bringing ( we did leave some salt for the next renters) .
