Owner Supplied Testimonials

Relaxing and enjoyable weekend with my partner :-)

Exactly as stated. Really clean and maintained. Received security deposit 2 days after checking out, that never happens! Would definitely rent again in the future, as well as recommend to friends and family! --Tara K.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ June 3, 2016
My husband and I stayed at Lisa's "cottage" with my aunt and uncle. My uncle continued to call it a quaint cottage with everything. We relaxed on the deck in the evenings and the deer came right up and just walked around. Having a grill to cook out on made for easy dinners. If you think you may have forgotten something, Lisa has it there. All you need is your food. We had some rain showers and just relaxed inside and enjoyed watching it rain on the skylight. We got to enjoy the beach at the lake. The guys found a lobster tangled in fishing line and freed him. The water was so clear and the fish swim all around you. It was just peaceful to sit out on the deck and hear the noises of nature. Everything Lisa states about her property is true. It was very clean and she was available if needed. -- Tracy H.

Lisa is a very responsive and helpful host. And her place is a lovely 'hideout' in the woods. The house is decorated modern and equipped with all you need to enjoy a few days with your friends in the nature. Fire pit in the backyard is a big plus for barbecue. It's located not far from the main road but in a quiet community. If you're looking for exploring the Pocono, and Delaware river area, this is the right choice! -- Liu Y.

Dear Lisa,
My husband and I (Wayne and Nancy Anderson) rented your home in June of this year. We were so delighted with not only your home but the area was wonderful. The quality from new beds, one King and one Queen, spacious rooms, everything except food was furnished. This home is a wonderful place to get away and the comfort and cleanliness was top notch. You had thought of everything to make our stay a joy.

In the colder months there was a beautiful fireplace to use, large super comfortable living room furniture, the kitchen was stocked with all dishes, silver ware, cooking utensils, there was nothing lacking. To have a washer and dryer was such a plus. The bedrooms were very spacious with plenty of closet and dresser space. We had the use of a grill, fire pit and lovely deck.

The peace and quiet was so nice and having deer in the yard at times was such a thrill. You had put so much effort in making this feel homey it was like coming home every time we walked back into it after going to so many wonderful places near by. Plenty of restaurants, stores and sights to see. The kitchen island (with a beautiful dishwasher) is one of the nicest I have ever seen.

You have a wonderful beach and swimming pools close by, this is one of the best vacations we have ever had. It is perfect for two couples or a couple that have children. Every inch of space was created with effort to make us feel at home. We would love to be snowbound in this house and enjoy the winter time here. It is decorated to make anyone happy. The linens were plentiful and the sheets and comforters were so comfortable and cozy.

This is a treasure and the price was so economical, if you stayed in a hotel you would easily have had to spend more. There is absolutely nothing about this house that is less than excellent. We give it such a high rating that we hated to leave. This is definitely a jewel that we recommend with 10 gold stars.

Thank you for sharing your home with us and we would definitely return, anyone who stays here would only be happy, relaxed and so glad they chose this home for their stay. One last point we need to let others know is that the owners are such friendly and wonderful people and want you to be happy, and that we were.

Sincerely,
Wayne and Nancy Anderson

Cozy retreat is correct !!!

The house was perfect for what we were looking for . It was extremely clean and had everything you could possible need and more!!The beds were super comfy and plush . The yard was perfect for roasting marshmallows or even a BBQ . We used the Lake daily and I have to say it was amazing. The people we're so friendly . When we checked in it was quick and painless ... Overall we had a great time.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Perfect relaxing and fun getaway!

My family LOVED this house and all the benefits! The house and outdoor space is clean and have everything you need to just bring your clothing and unwind. There's clean towels and big comfy beds with soft sheets, pots, pans, dish soap, board games, movies, books... Everything. The back yard has great privacy to sit and enjoy the scenery and wild life while you grill or toast marshmallows at the fire. We had three deer walk right in the yard and hang out eating for a bit. But the wonderful house wasn't even the best part. The beach at the lake is beautiful with area to swim, a large pavilion with tables, a playground and a dock to take out a boat. The pool was our favorite though! Huge and very well kept. The club house by the pool has a great little cafe with burgers and fries and hand dipped milkshakes along with lots of other yummy treats! The hot tub was great! The pool stays open into the night (8-9 pm in summer) so you can enjoy the hot tub under the stars. The house is so close to everything that we were able to take our 1 yr old back to the house for naps and then right back to the pool when he woke. Everything about this house and the perks make relaxing easy. 
I also really appreciated the responsiveness of Lisa the property owner. She is so pleasant and made the rental process painless and easy. 
We just got back from 4 days of vacation here and we are already trying to find another free weekend in our schedule to go back! --Rachel D.

great getaway ★ ★ ★ ★

Thank you Lisa for sharing your cozy home with us. We had a very relaxing 2 days at your home. The king size bed was greatly appreciated as we are not so small people. We enjoyed the outdoor area, eating meals on the deck, burning a fire at night and having the opportunity to see the deer,( one night there was 10 of them), we also saw 3 turkeys. We definately will be come back and will recommend the home to our friends and family.

Thank you,
Gwen and Ed

This home is so cozy and has all the amenities needed... The description is correct, just bring the food! It was comfortable, deer were all around, friendly and docile. The home has a very special vibe to it. It didn't feel strange, it felt like we were home! It was nice to drive around and visit the lake, the community center. The owners are very hospitable and eager to provide any help you need. I definitely will be renting again. Hopefully this time I can go for a week instead of a long weekend. Thanks Lisa!!

My wife and I always spend a long weekend during the “leaf-turning” time of year, and this year we stayed at Lisa’s wonderful home. First and foremost, the place was very clean, had every modern convenience anyone could want, and on top of that the bed was very comfortable. For my wife these three are a must if she is going to truly enjoy herself, and Lisa’s home had all three. For me it is also important to be reasonably close to things to do, restaurants, etc., and this was also true. I would not only have no trouble recommending this place to a friend, but would easily stay here again myself.

Cozy cabin
★ ★ ★ ★
Exactly as advertised....great wooded surroundings and convenient to great outdoor activities. Towns like Milford, Hawey, Easton and Bethlehem are within an hour's drive, too.

Cabin is clean, tidy and well equipped for cooking all meals if desired, with plenty of extra linens and good TV access. Two options for dining outside if the weather is warm enough.

Lisa was the best host I've had the pleasure to e-meet. She was responsive, she answered all my questions in a timely matter, and was extremely gracious. The space itself is exactly how it's pictured. It's extremely quaint & quiet. The four of us enjoyed the escape from NYC to this cozy cottage! We cooked dinner, warmed up by the fireplace, even started the bonfire! Her cottage is equipped with little necessities that we forgot to bring, like butter, a Brita water filter, and condiments. We are more than grateful for our stay at Lisa's! If you are so lucky to get a night's rest there, you will not regret it!
