“Wonderful Stay”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2017

Our stay was great and basically everything was provided. The owner responded fast which was great because it made it so much easier for me. I have stayed at other places but this was the best. My family was very happy with the it. Taking my dog felt was super easy, no one gave me any trouble for it which was great! We do this every year and now we know where we are going next year! Amazing stay.

“Excellent Experience !”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2016

The house was very clean and everything was in place which was mentioned.We were 10 people and we found enough space. The game room was one of the most which we like. You can spend complete day there as there are lots of options to play with family. Good for family vacation and beautiful location. The owner Mr. Dave provided responses within a min after I text him or mail him. We got the refund of deposit within 2 days of time which was awesome ! Overall I will like to stay again there if I get a chance.

“Beautiful and all around great time”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2016

My family and those of my sister-in-law spend last weekend and we just had a great time. This is a perfect location to enjoy the beautiful fall weather and I was just thrilled to reconnect with my family and enjoy nature. We spend very little but got a lot out of this weekend great-away.

“Awesome home”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2016

Family of 8 plus 12yr old dog had plenty of room with lots a fun stuff to do. The beds were clean and comfortable. All furnishing and appliances are up to date especially the 50" TV in the living room. Several state parks within a reasonable distance, but shopping and restaurants a longer drive. Dave was easy to work with and prompt with refund. I could go on, but it's getting late

“Great stay!”

Reviewed 29 Feb 2016

We rented this house for a small group retreat, and had a great stay. It was an unusually warm winter weekend, so we drove about 20 minutes for a beautiful hike in the Lehigh Gorge. House had everything we needed, and let everyone have there own space. Thanks for everything!

“Great Family Getaway”

Great little house for our family weekend. Our kids loved the game room, and the TV with Netflix in their room. Plenty of space for 1-2 family - Great location to visit Jack Frost or H2O Water Park

My family and I had a great experience. It's really cozy and comfortable and Paul really helped with everything that we needed. The game room was our favorite room. We will definitely be planning another trip in the future.

“Excellent Stay”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2016

I had the opportunity to stay in this property along with some of my friends. The house was clean, cozy, and close to Jack Frost/ Big Boulder. Paul, the owner, was tentative and very helpful through out the entire process. I definitely recommend this house!

“Nice vacation”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2015

If you call gutting and remodeling a kitchen including floors and cabinets, and painting the great room and bedrooms a vacation. Of course, since I am the owner, this IS how I spend my vacations LOL

Owner's reply: Thanks for your hard work Paul. I appreciate it. Paul

“Great Family Getaway”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2015

Our family enjoyed staying at this home. We particularly enjoyed all the games in the game room. It was an excellent opportunity to grab quality family time. We also enjoyed eating out on the deck, especially breakfast time, where the little ones were able to chase the deer. Having the beach and the pool, nearby was nice. Additionally, the owners were easily accessible. We definitely recommend this house to friends and family.

Owner's reply: We're glad these folks had fun but to future guests...Please don't chase the deer. If one decides not to run, it won't be fun. Bucks in the fall, does with fawns in the spring and summer, they will stand their ground and fight back.
