“Awesome View”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2015

The view in the backyard and from the deck is amazing. The benches at the end of the dock are a nice touch of romantic and relaxing. The house itself is massive with 3 floors and plenty of space. Plenty of bathrooms and showers (good pressure). The heaters work great, even if you don't want to use the fireplace. I definitely recommend this house to others and I will rent from them again.

“family time”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house! We love the Big Bass lake Community and enjoyed taking part in the activities that were offered. 3 of us even won in bingo! Our car broke down on the way up to the house so the vacation didnt start off well but relaxing in the hot tub was a perfect way to sooth my stress. Every morning brought deer and turkeys and we loved sitting on the huge deck and enjoying the view. There was lenty of room for everyone to spread out and the pool table was a very popular item during our stay. we lloved the house and highly recommend it

“rustic relaxation”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2015

Wonderul week in a natural setting.....loved the tree shaded canopy of the deck from which we viewed turkey, deer, blue heron and even an eagle! The pool table and air hockey were big hits with the whole family of ten. we all were so content that we rarely left this cozy home, but we did "do" the outlets in Tannersville and marveled at the awesome beauty of Bushkill Falls. The lake was peaceful and the water very clean.....we brought our own inflateable 4 man boat and felt very safe with the non-motor restriction. The home itself is rustic and cozy with plenty of "elbow room" for our family of 4 teenagers and 6 adults. This is not a luxury home but if enjoying nature, fresh air, breathtaking views,and convient locatation is what you are looking for we would highly reccomend this special home.Be sure to bring dish towels and dish cloths along with your personal towels...there are convience stores just outside the gated community for any needed items. Most any kitchen utensil you would need is there and the dishwsher is very effecient. The gameroom TV is super and the whole family was happy together with lots of fun things to do in that room. Some evenings we had special close up views of deer just outside the large windows. The fishing was not good for us. We did not see anyone catching anything while we were there. The heron and the eagle may have had better luck :) All in all...everyone of us had a very speial week in Big Bass Lake

“Mountain weekend”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2015

My husband and I booked a weekend getaway for our family. We had a great time, the location was beautiful, the house is on the lake. We had plenty of room (3 levels) to accomodate us. The row boat was a big hit with the kids and the guys fishing. We also enjoyed the hot tub. The house was very clean and the owner was very nice to work with. Hoping to return next year!

“Great Family Vacation”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2014

The owner cares for this home, and it shows. My kids had a great time in the lake fishing, swimming, and riding on the boat. We definitely would like to re-book for next year.

“great place”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2014
