Do Not Waste Your Money!!!
January 30, 2014
From the pictures & descriptions this home had everything my family ( husband & 2 children) wanted in a vacation rental. The moment we arrived I knew it was a mistake. Upon exiting our car we were greeted with the horrific smell of sewage. The alarm on the sewage tank was going off & sewage was spouting from the top of the tank. The owner had informed us right before or arrival that some work was being done on the house and the basement game room was suitable for use but not for sleeping. She gave us a number to call if anything was wrong. She neglected to mention there was a sewage leak prior to our arrival!we immediately called the number and had to wait a few hours for a maintenance worker to come out and drain the tank. He informed us that there had been a leak in the tank that went into the game room/ basement. He told us he informed the owner she needed a new sewage tank. Upon walking into the house we were assaulted with the sewage smell that no amount of window opening, scented candles (which we purchased) or air fresher could dispel. The carpets in the house were filthy with visible spots throughout. The mattresses were dirty & bloodstained. The deck was filthy and equipped with an old patio set that was ripped and stained. Do not let the pictures fool you! The deck barely fit the antiquated patio set, probably 8x 10 feet at maximum. The pretty couches shown in the pictures were nowhere to be found! The grill shown in the pictures was a table top grill with a small propane tank that was parked in the dining room. The creek is located down a long slope and not easily accessible. I did not want my children in it because the sewage spouting out of the tank was running down the hill into the creek. There is a jacuzzi tub in the master bath. My young daughter wanted to try it out. After filling the tub with water I turned on the jets. Immediately foam appeared. I got her out of the tub and drained it. The ring of filth that was left was absolutely disgusting. Amenity passes were supposed to be left by the cleaning person. They were nowhere to be found. We had to purchase them ourselves. When I contacted the owner to ask where they were, our phone call was never returned (she was out of the country) we contacted the owner and detailed all the problems with the house & asked for a refund of some money since part of the house was not habitable. She offered to reimburse us for the amenity passes and hinted she would discuss reimbursement. She did neither!

This House Is Disgusting. Do Not Fall For The Pictures They Show Because They Are False. The Rugs, Sofa And Beds Were Stained . Also This Property Is Not Flat And There Is No Way Down To The Creek Unless You Are Brave Enough To Try Togo Down An Unsafe Steep Path. The Grill Was Not Working And The Property Wasnt, Even Landscaped.the Basement Was Flooded From Sewerage Back Up And Smelled Horrible. On Top Of That They Actually Accused Us Of Damaging The Septic Tank. The Tank Was Actually Overflowing And Running Down The Property The Whole Time We Were There. Also The Bathroom Was Leeking From The Backed Up Sewarage From The Time We Got There. If You Are Looking To Fish Forget About It. You Are Not Allowed To Fish In The Lake And The Creek Is Not Even Accessible. The Kitchen They Show In The Pictures Is Only Half Right. There Is 4 Brown Chairs And 4 Folding Chairs. Also There Is No Outdoor Furniture Like The Pictures Show. Just A Beat Up Table And Four Broken Chairs. There Isnt Any Bunkbeds Either, In Fact There Is One Twin Mattress And One Fold Out Cot. So Basically We Spent One Week In A House That Wasn,t Fit For An Animal. And We Had To Deal With The Smell Of Urine And Feces. We Actually Had To Buy Candles And And Air Fresheners To Get By. And The Owner Actually Has The Nerve To Say She Is Billing Us For The Septic Tank. What Nerve.also These Shady People Had The Nerve To Tell Us 2 Days Before There Was A Leak Downstairs And We Couldn't Use It. Do Not Rent This Place.

Great vacation home!!!!
February 24, 2013
What a lovely home to stay at! My three children and myself loved the decor, privacy, fireplaces, and being able to spend some quality time together in such a lovely home. You could not have asked for a better facilitated house from gameroom, hot tub, bedrooms, dining and living areas. All amazing! Will definitely stay again! Five stars from this family! Thanks again Manny for sharing your beautiful home such a pleasure!
October 3, 2012
We enjoyed our vacation very much. The house had every-thing we needed, pooltable, table tennis, hot tub, all kinds of board games. The beds were great. The kitchen was equiped with eveything you would need except large bowls. Watching the deer and wild turkeys was a bonus. The house was in a beautiful setting. Even though there were houses close by you still felt like you were in the country. I would highly recommend this place for your next vacation.
Nice house, but beware
September 16, 2012
We were very excited to see such a nice house when we arrived. However, soon after we noticed that the tv in the basement was not working, so I notified the owner. She said someone would come and take care of it and that never happened. Sharing one tv with 12 people for a week wasn't very pleasant most of the time. The "twin beds" that she has listed are actually cots, which is very misleading. They were very uncomfortable, so we had to purchase 2 air mattresses. Throughout our stay we attempted to clean the carpet, but both vacuums also did not work. The only thing available was a tiny broom. Before we left the house, my family and I left the house neat and organized and dishes cleaned. However, the owner claimed that the house was left in the worse condition possible. So bad that she claimed she had to hire extra people!! This owner is a liar so beware. Her claims were lies in order to keep the deposit. So if u do rent this house, I suggest you take pictures before you leave and be prepared to lose some or all of your deposit.
Not As Advertised!!!
September 2, 2012
Look elsewhere. Sleeping accommodation was not as posted. We had to buy inflatable mattresses and the TV in the basement did not work. The owner said she would send someone to repair it but never did. After our departure, she said she was not going to return our deposit claiming she had to hire a second cleaning lady because we left the house so filthy and she had to hire moving men because we had moved furniture. These claims were completely false. I think this is how the owner scams renters out of they're deposit. BEWARE!!!
THIS PROPERTY IS NOT WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE...
July 30, 2012
We recently stayed a week for vacation at this property. When we arrived to the house, the AC was not working at all. It was 96 degrees outside and inside was unbearable. In addition, there was a flood previously in the basement and the odor of must/mold was overwhelming. We intended on using the "gameroom" for the four children to spread out and have fun. Even the kids could not tolerate the smell. The furniture downstairs was torn, filthy and also smelled of must. Actually, the entire house smelled bad, it was a very humid week. We had to buy candles and air freshener, carpet fresh, etc. to mask the odor. The TV downstairs did not work, after 5 minutes it would overheat and shut off. There were only three chairs to the dining room table, not eight as shown in the picture. The deck was very small, we could barely walk around the table. No patio furniture as shown in picture. Although the creek in the back of the property was nice, we could not enjoy it. It was very far down from the house, with no stairs or easy access. We had to climb up and down the hill to enjoy the creek. We were able to do so but some people may not. There was a very unruly neighbor who apparently did not like renters. He insisted that the kids could not be in the creek facing his property. He had the rocks marked and became very hostile, and said that we were intruding on a residential area! Not a pleasant experience to say the very least. We were under the impression that there was a lake for swimming and a beach as written in the property description. There was NO swimming in the lake and there was NO beach. Very disappointing. We did a lot of research and carefully chose the property to fit our needs based on the website presentation. We will never do that again. There are far too many beautiful homes in the mountains and we feel cheated! Family time is precious and a horrible vacation can not be replaced. The development of Saw Creek Estates also needs to be made aware of this situation. I hope that this review will help others when they see this property. It looks great on the website, probably staged for photos. It is absolutely not worth the money and quite frankly, it is disgusting. We are laid back, easy to please people that just want what we paid for.

Was told wheelchair accessible Had 3 large steps we had to lift our daughters chair up really bad. Basement where some were to sleep was all mold all over everything. Chair was broken. NO AIR CONDITIONING.. carpet really dirty, internet did not work. Garage floor real dirty alot of other little things. Put a damper on our vacation . tried to get manager to help. was of no help at all. Owner tried to help, She got someone to come and clean mold down stairs but no one slept down there smell was too bad. She tried to get air conditioner fixed. Repair man came 3 times and still wasn't working Sunday when we left. Weeds were pretty high to get down to creek without sliping.

The house was beautiful and clean. The owner is very accomodating and a pleasure to deal with. Plenty to do in the home and nearby.
March 23, 2011
It was more than I expected it. The house was beautiful inside out. Very spacious and cozy. You will love it !! Loved the game room, which was one of our favorite places besides the living room. Great place to stay with friends and family. Owner was very nice and we would gladly come back next time around. Got our deposit back within 2 days without even asking! Not the cheapest house but worth every penny!!!
Peaceful--yet fun house right on lake
March 8, 2011
My group of friends had a great time in this house. It is so peaceful to sit out on deck and listen to the running stream below. It has lots of fun things to do as well..with a great basement filled with entertainment
Not what was expected
March 7, 2011
This is actually a 4 bedroom 2.5 bath house. Only 1 bath on second floor with 3 bedrooms. Other 2 baths on the first floor where there is only 1 bedroom. 5th bedroom is really the very cold basement where the queen bed is on floor. there are only 2 twin beds (bunks), 2 were unsleepable cots and 2 were tables with outdoor lounge chair cushions on them covered with curtains (seriously) . Bring a blow-up bed instead. If you go, take pics before you leave...owners charged for damages we did not do.

Very embarrass for my family!!
March 2, 2011
This property i will not recommend to anyone, This place was very dirty and dusty, You can tell that the owner has not been there to check on the place. She also stated she has 3 bath but only has 2.5 bath imagine 7 adult trying to take turn using one full bath. The grill was very nasty and molded.most of the dishes was caked on food from someone elses meal. Did not have enough face cloth or bed sheets for the rooms. the refrigerate was dirty, ceiling fans and light fixture with 2 inches of dust.One of the bedroom with books holding up the bed from the last client that rented the house. The owner has not been here to check this house, the cleaning person is a joke!!. My advice to folks who wants to rent out a private home, check it out closely. The pictures on the internet is not what you see when you get there. I have rented private homes before, this is d- worst i have ever came across. I have never had private owner who don't call the tenant to make sure everything is ok. I would not RECCOMEND THIS PROPERY TO NO ONE!!!

Never rent this property!
January 29, 2011
This woman told me that the weekend we wanted (first weekend in August) was available. After several emails back and forth to set up the trip, she said that she always uses that weekend for her family. It would've been nice of her to tell me that in the first place. It wasn't "unavailable" in the Availability section. She was short with me throughout her emails, and I spent a lot of time working out the payments between the other people going, all for nothing. I also turned down other rentals once she said this house was available for the weekend we wanted. She is nasty, and I strongly advise people not to rent from this person. I wouldn't be shocked if she paid people to write all the positive feedback.

The "Modern" home does not have air conditioning. We had to search for the hammock. The creek front swing was broken and propped up on cinder blocks. Ping Pong table present but no balls. The Modern home does not have closets or dressers in 3:4 bedrooms. The "Beautiful Deck" is so small a family of 6 cannot all sit on it. The toilet "ran" constantly and the property manager never returned our call. But most maddening was the fact that we were not expected and "held" at the gate for 4o minutes until the owner could be contacted. Our kids were told to be quiet while they played in the "Beautiful" creek. Do not rent this property. Awful stay.
Brooklyn, New York
Not so relaxing vacation.
August 16, 2010
the biggest disappointment!!!!! Lets start from the beginning. The house location is really bad - it located somewhere low - it is really dark and not aired, especially air is bad in the basement. THERE ARE 4 BEDROOMS, not 5 as advertised, THE 5th mattress is in the basement which do not qualify for a bedroom from any standards. You better bring your own linens - there are not enough of them, even you pay money for it, and they all pretty used. Toilet upstairs did not work and was running non stop, affecting our sleep. The refrigerator was dirty upon our arrival THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING - AND DUE TO HOUSE INCONVENIENT LOCATION it was unbearably hot and humid in the house.

If your looking to have a great time with your family and loved ones in the Poconos, then I recommend this beautiful, clean, spacious and secured home. My family had an awesome time. Kids had fun in the play room,internet and t.v. Everything was nearby and conveniant. Will be back in the winter for sure! Homeowner is a real sweetheart! Hope everyone else enjoys as much as we did. Thank you Ella for sharing your home with our family.

To drop $1000 for a mere weekend and arrive to find the entire house stuffy and warm is ridiculous. The AC wasn't working properly and made for two nights of very uncomfortable sleeping. Had the windows been left open in anticipation of arrival may have alleviated some of the issues. Be sure you tell homeowner how many guests you'll have so that there will be passes/badges ready upon your arrival. Also be sure to notify homeowner how many cars will need to be allowed into the gated community to expedite that process. It would also be nice if both gates had the SAME information to help with coming and going into and out of the estate. Avoid Top of the World pool and stick to the smaller ones to avoid the crowds. There is no recycling so know that if you wish to you have to pack it out. Be sure to but your own paper towels, toilet paper and trash bags too as there wasn't adequate supply. The sauna was broken, the air hockey table had no puck, there was only one ping pong ball. It was odd to feel that for that kind of money we were "roughing it". The location could have been an excellent backdrop to our family reunion, rather it made us all uncomfortable, hot and miserable. Better to stay at Fern Wood nearer everything worth seeing, no gate, and they have AC!
July 14, 2010
The home is really nice. Lots of space and we easily enjoyed our time inside. The air conditioning was key b/c it was very hot outside. Owners information is vague about the inclusion of the amenities passes... they are NOT included and that costs an additional $75. The Masthope Community was VERY disorganized. Lots of odd times/days where offices were closed. Personaly was not very friendly or helpful. Terrible signage for the location of the lake, pool, and other amenities. Information on the location of local grocery could have been better.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!

The house was very clean, comfortable, and in very good condition. My family and I had a great time. The play room was fully renovated, and a lot of space. The teens enjoyed the play room very much. I would really recommend this house and it would be great for any family. Owner was easy to deal with. Only 2 hours away from New York. Nice pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, etc. in the community. I would rent this place again.

The house was beautiful, clean and well-appointed. Plenty of room for our 3 families. The teens enjoyed the lower level game room and bedroom but BRING EXTRA BLANKETS for those areas! Ella told us we should, and we should have listened! We would love to return in the summer. BEAUTIFUL location.
January 19, 2010
My family and I had a wonderful stay. The owner was very pleasant and accommodating and the house was very comfortable and very clean. The location was excellent. You are minutes from all the amenities that the Poconos has to offer. I would highly recommend this house to anyone wishing to stay in a very well kept home in the middle of all Pocono activities.

Thank you Ella, for making your lovely home available! I had a wonderful time and especially enjoyed the deer and wild turkeys that visited me each evening. I never knew turkeys could fly!
