“Good value and well-appointed pet friendly rental”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2018

We were very satisfied with this rental. The area is beautiful and the home is well cared-for with lots of amenities. Especially appreciated the large living room flat-screen (one of 5 in the house!) and the excellent internet and wi-fi. The home is near grocery shopping and take-out style restaurants, and there are finer restaurants and good breakfast choices nearby. Everything was in good working order (though we agree with a comment that the game room is musty) and the owner provided very clear and extensive instructions for check-in/check-out, as well as a comprehensive guide to nearby attractions. We enjoyed biking and white-water rafting on the Lehigh, and twice took advantage of the free-for-guests nearby tennis courts. You will find many deer nearby and an ample backyard. It is a beautiful, typical Pocono's location. Our dog loved it as well (especially the many squirrels he chased, in vain.) We encountered a small issue with one of the TV's and Dave responded by text immediately and then called to make sure we resolved our problem. Also when we had a power hit due to a tornado in the area, Dave called us right away after he had been alerted by the local power company. We appreciated his concern. There were a couple of very minor maintenance items that we relayed to the owner; by and large the home is clearly well cared for.

Owner's reply: We appreciate the 5 star review and have addressed the minor maintenance items. We hope to see you back soon. Thank you!

“Thanksgiving in the Poconos”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2017

Stayed for three nights and enjoyed a full course Thanksgiving dinner in this house. The home was very clean, comfortable and accommodating. My grand-dog was so contented in her dog bed in the great room and enjoyed several walks a day experiencing new woods smells.. We all enjoyed the game room and all the amenities there. Especially enjoyed watching all of the deer in the back yard. Shopping in Blakeslee and Blakeslee corners was only eight miles away. We even visited a local butcher store in Blakeslee to buy venison strip steaks and jerky to take home. Great time, wonderful location!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the great review. We appreciate your staying with us.

This house was fantastic. The location is great being walking distance to the lake. The house was fully stocked with anything you could think of while on vacation. The game was an excellent addition for the kids when we had down time from our daily activities. Would love to stay here again!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the terrific review! We'd love to have you stay again!

“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

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review - It was great to have you stay!

“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”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2016

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
