Eagle's Cove

July 21, 2015

Soaring above the calm waters were two beautiful Bald Eagles ready for fishing! We watched them every day while sitting peacefully on the deck or dock of this conveniently located home. At night we had a clear view of the stars as we sat around the camp fire and sang songs. The owners are just a phone call away if needed, and answered my silly questions. The canoe, paddle boat and row boat got used each day and the children enjoyed watching the turtles poke their heads out of the water. There is plenty of sleeping spaces and tables and chairs to accommodate a large group which makes packing so much easier. This is our second family reunion at The Boathouse and no one is ever disappointed! It is a safe area and is just a short walk to the sandy beach and built in swimming pools. Thanks so much, we had wonderful time.

Family Vacation Fun

February 10, 2015

Nice home with plenty of beds. Kids had a great time with vintage arcade-style video games. Large-screen TVs perfect for family movie night. Nice deck with beautiful view of lake. Everything was in good, working order and John was very responsive to one small problem that developed during our stay- it was solved by the time we returned later that day. Quiet, gated community has many terrific amenities, indoor and outdoor, just minutes away. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Thanks John!

Amazing lakeside views

June 9, 2014

The views were great from the deck. We used the boats and fire pit everyday. Caught a few fish relaxed on the hammock. And the game room in basement was awesome. Plenty of room for ten guys.

New year at the Poconos

January 22, 2014

We had a very enjoyable time at The Boathouse. The kitchen was equipped to satisfaction, even wine glasses. The location of the house is perfect offering beautiful views of the lake, it is a great summer rental since it even comes with boats & canoes. There is a nice gas fire pit outside and lots of chair for the decks and fire pit, even a hammock. The game room is fantastic and the grandchildren (and adults) had a blast. John and Scott are very attentive to requests and return calls almost immediately. Very nice landlords.! Their maintenance person, Louie, is also very nice and quickly took care of a small issue. There are a couple of things that need to be taking care off but I am addressing those with John & Scott, nothing major. We rented for 16 people but ended up with 14 which provided us with more room. In the future, we would like to rent this place in the summer. We only need to get our deposit back to make this winter vacation complete.

Awesome Experience..

December 4, 2013

We stayed at the Moondance. OMG Where do I start, First of all the location was just next to the lake so the morning view of the lake was breathtaking. Everything was already there in the house, we just needed to take the food and tissue rolls that's it. The whole house was so very clean and well maintained. A definite place to visit with a crowd since the basement pool table would keep a crowd entertained. So many positive things to say and really I don't have any negative points. But am sure about one thing, I have already decided to book this location for summer...

Beautiful Lake View Property

January 20, 2013

This 4 bdrm property sits high above the lake with a wrap around deck that offers beautiful views of the lake. Upon entering the home you notice the rounded structure with windows all the way around to offer great views from inside as well. The open floor plan living area, dining area, and kitchien all offer the beautiful views of the lake. The owners touched off this family area with a real nice modern gas fire place with a nice size mantle that held a 50i nch flat screen with a nice picture. Across from the kitchen in the hall way is a full bath and then there are two bedrooms with the main bedroom having a half bath in it. However, upon driving through the development you quickly realize that Lake Ariel is huge and there are an abundant of homes that sit on the lake with great views. This leads us to the LOWER LEVEL OF THE BOATHOUSE WHICH IS THE ONE MOST DISTINCT FEATURE OF THIS HOME: The lower level is any family's vacation dream with the room centered around the pool table and a large flat screen TV. To add to this room is 4 more video games one of which offers an unlimited number of different games to play. Then there is a descent size cutout within the room that has 2 couches that can also pull out into queen sleepers that face another large screen TV. To top off the room there is a large juke box that offers a great selection of music. In the back of the lower level is two bedrooms. This lower level makes this home more desirable than any other home in the development. For those of you who may have young children, it should be reassuring to know the development is gated with 24 hour security.
