“Mountain house”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2016

First time I stayed there, awesome house. Lots of room. Needs a little updating but still nice. The only thing I was bummed about is in master bedroom has only a tub and no shower. All and all its a great house where you can fit a lot of people and have a good time. The owner Mary is very nice person.

Owner's reply: Thank you for staying. We make every attempt to make your stay comfortable and am constantly updating each room. Maybe we should consider converting the Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom into a shower also. Great idea - 3 showers in the house would be nice; but would hate to lose that Jacuzzi.

“Nice Pocono Home”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2016

This house was very typical of Poconos style homes. It was located on a nice piece of property and had everything we needed. We would like to rent this again. Enough beds for family and friends. Clean. You could stay for an entire week and be very comfortable here.

“Family get together”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2015

This is a very large house. lots of living space and plenty of beds. close to all attractions and town of Jim Thorpe. The kids and adults spent much time at the house as it was so big and comfortable, with lots of games to play. Mary is a very conscientious owner who was easy to communicate with.

“Great time in winter”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

The house was nice and spacious, all beds were comfortable, the game room(s) had all the games as promised. We were a family company, 8 adults and two kids. We had a great time hanging out together, and skiing at Big Boulder and Camelback which are both nearby. Everything is great about this house, except a couple of minor things that I hope the owners will take care of soon, for the sake of future visitors: (1) Outdoor gas grill needs to be fixed, some of the elements there don't work, perhaps clogged; (2) Sauna doesn't work; (3) One or two of the burners on the electric stove in the kitchen didn't work. But these are super-minor details which may even be fixed by the time this review is published. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, the house was clean, all games functioned and (surprising for rental property) all games' parts were in place and nothing was missing, so we could truly enjoy the air hockey, and the billiard, to the delight of the kids and the adults. Mary (the owner) was great at returning our calls, answering questions, and giving helpful advice. We're sure to return next winter!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the update. All is in working condition now. I do appreciate all feedback from renters as it allows me to keep the house in great condition.

“Great Fall Get Away”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2013

Our group enjoyed a relaxing weekend in this HUGE home. Enjoyed games, pool and air hockey tables, walks to the lake and a trip into charming Jim Thorpe. The home was tidy with a well stocked kitchen. There was plenty of room for group games and movies but also space for quiet reading and relaxation. It did take a while to warm up so be patient and bring a few blankets. Our group of 13 had a wonderful time and would recommend for large family gatherings.
