Successful Bachelor Party
Overall we had an excellent time at Mountain Vista. I was apprehensive at first as this house was our third rental after the first had a leak issue and the second was just not up to par with what we were looking for, however, poconos log cabin rentals hit it out of the park for moving us into this property immediately upon request. The house is beautiful and has every amenity we could ask for. We would rent again for future parties and get togethers.
I just got back from a weekend at the Mountain Vista cabin and we had a blast! First off, the PLCR people are extremely helpful with helping you organize a perfect party weekend. The activities that they offer are endless. They were able to book cab services to/from the bar and golf, they booked tee times for golf, and they helped get me a catered meal for dinner one night. The cabin itself sits perfectly on the mountain so that it overlooks the Pocono landscape for miles. Inside, everything was very clean and it contained everything you would need to have a comfortable stay. My friends and I liked it so much that we are thinking about making it a yearly trip!
Just spent a weekend at "Mountain Vista". Poconos Log Cabin Rentals was extremely helpful in helping me organize everything. They were ready and available to help me with all questions any time day or night. The cabin itself was amazing. Great view. Plenty to do around the area to keep you busy. I will definitely be planning a rental with them again.
Had my brothers bachelor party at the house. Spacious and clean. View was amazing. Neil was great to work with. Can't wait to rent again with my family!
Great to hear Dominick! Glad you loved your weekend! We'd love to have you back any time! Cheers!
Along with a large group of friends, we rented Neil's property for a Fall weekend escape from the city. The house was perfect - a great size with plenty of space for 10 of us, without us ever feeling crowded. The house and specifically the kitchen was fully equipped, we were able to grill outside both nights and all fit around the big dining table, and we made good use of the hot tub. The deck has incredible views and the whole place was everything you see in the pictures and more. I look forward to returning here.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with me and my friends. The Amish-Built Chalet was so relaxing, very clean and so comfortable. It was everything we hoped it would be. The surroundings were peaceful and tranquil. The house was fully stocked with everything needed to make a delicious meal. The big screen TV was spectacular! Owner was very helpful and provided quick responses to any questions that I had during our stay. Don't hesitate to choose this home for your vacation stay. Thanks again !
We had a wonderful weekend at the Chalet. The view was amazing. The weather was rainy but the house was so spacious we had no problem spreading out and relaxing. Plenty of space and everything was in good condition. Neil was very friendly and quick to respond to any questions we had. Ken (maintenance) came to turn on the fireplace before we arrived so the house was nice and cozy! Would absolutely visit again!
Thank you so much for the review - greatly appreciated. The chalet is an excellent place regardless of weather conditions - rain, sleet, snow or sunshine. I am completely relaxed when arriving here - just looking out over the Lehigh River Gorge. The gorge has a 40-mile bike and walking trail along the Lehigh River. A whitewater rafting, kayak, and fishing which is peaceful and exciting at the same time. A place to escape from the mad rush! Neil
My family (including two dogs) had the opportunity to stay for a long weekend over the New Year's holiday at Neil's beautiful log home in the Poconos. We had a great time and Neil made us feel right at home. We enjoyed the hot tub, the rec room, the nearby ski resorts and hiking in the state park. The mountain views from the deck were stunning and peaceful. Neil's spacious home is truly a mountain retreat for all ages at any time of year. I would highly recommend this property for your next vacation.
What a gorgeous view! Neil, the owner very pleasant and easy to contact and prompt to return call. The cabin was clean, kitchen had all you needed and space to accommodate what is stated in description. Activities were within a 45 min drive. Shopping, casinos, historic towns and plenty of natural places to visit. Oh,and the Fork restaurant on 940, delicious. Did I mention the view.
The listing and pictures are accurate and YES the view is that good. The house was clean, the beds were comfy, the jacuzzi was at 104, the fridge was cold, what else could you want! The house is huge and despite having 15 guys there was plenty of room. Tons of privacy with the town just a few miles down the road. We went swimming and hiking at Hickory Run State Park which is about 15 minutes down the road. The value of his the house is great and I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway. Most importantly Neil is a straight shooter and very easy to work with!
Thank you for your kind comments Tim - they are greatly appreciated. We try to have all guests have a positive stress free time in the chalet. If things are not right we will try to make things right. Hope you return and explore the many places and activities in this 4-season area. Neil
We all absolutely loved this chalet! I set up a "Mountain Weekend" for my boyfriend's welcome home party because we love the country and being with our closest friends. We live in NYC so it's such an amazing quick trip for some peace and quiet and getting to see a sky full of stars! We all had such a great time between the hot tub, relaxing on the porch with those beautiful mountains in front of us, building a nice fire for some s'mores, and playing games in the house. We did some local attractions as well while we were there to get into the spirit of Halloween, like going through a corn maze and getting pumpkins. We've definitely decided to make this an annual thing here at the chalet because we know how amazing the views are, the amenities are, the sleeping arrangements (which we had a whole house full of people but we still had some room), and the best part is Neil! Such an easy person to work with and helped me from the start... before I even decided on this Chalet. I would like to try the other amazing cabins he has, but I already love this one too much! Such great times and memories that'll last forever! Thank you Neil! See you next fall!
I am very pleased and grateful that you had a wonderful experience in the Poconos and the chalet. There is a wide array of things to do and see such as the Lehigh River Gorge - a 28-mile bike trail leading to Jim Thorpe. Skiing opportunities are available at 3 areas - Jack Frost, Big Boulder and Camelback. If you just want to relax and not do anything this is the place to do it. It is great to hear that you had a nice time - thank you!
This house HAS IT ALL. Pool table, big screen TV's, Hot Tub (clean and was 104 degrees our entire stay), 2 fireplaces, all the kitchen supplies you could ask for, and THE VIEW. The view is breathtaking, the pictures on Homeaway do not do it justice... We were fortunate to have clear skies, and were blown away by the stars! And it really does SLEEP 16. Some homeaway ads count pull-out couches and sofas for number it sleeps. Not this one, there were 14 of us, and beds to spare! The outdoor fire pit is a plus too. Neil (the owner) is such a nice guy, and you could tell he takes great pride in his Chalet. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Neil is an incredible host. He answered every time you needed him with no wait. His house is absolutely amazing, the view is incredible and cannot be topped. The house itself is awesome, completely beautiful and rustic/log cabin looking from the actual house to all the decorations, etc. It is the perfect place to get away and hang out, like my and my buddies did for the weekend. There's always something to do, and it's minutes from even more entertainment. Neil is first class all the way and I would recommend this house or any of his other houses to anyone.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable week! The house has an amazing view, is clean, and has plenty of space. The hot tub, grill and fire pit were great additions! Neil went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of, and he was a pleasure to deal with. Looking forward to maybe returning in the winter. Top notch all around, would highly recommend!
The cabin was in great condition and ready for our family's arrival. The views from the deck were absolutely great. Neil was a great host and was very quick to respond to questions and even gave recommendation to restaurants in the area. A 5 star experience and would definitely stay again.
This was the perfect spot to celebrate my birthday with the crew! Everyone had such an amazing time! The home is beautiful, spacious, & fully equipped. We were all blown away by the gorgeous views. The fall foliage in the valley was breathtaking. We really enjoyed hanging out at the fire pit, relaxing in the hot tub, and grilling up a storm! What a great spot for a weekend getaway. Thanks for the hospitality, Neil!!
The cabin was beautiful, huge, very clean, and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We loved the multiple fireplaces, outdoor fire pit, and hot tub (although the hot tub is a bit small for the number of people the house sleeps; we tried to squeeze 5 adults in there and it was too tight!). The kitchen had everything we needed to cook big meals. We loved that it was dog-friendly and a short drive to Hickory Run State Park for lots of hiking. Neil was very responsive and easy to contact for setting up the rental. Overall, a great experience and would rent here again!
My friends and I had an amazing experience at Neil's beautiful house with its great view. The house is very nice and spacious. The hot tub is really great and you can enjoy your time staying in it and benefiting from the great view. Also Neil is very available and friendly. Finally, he refunded the deposit right away after the trip which is very nice of him.
I had my 30th birthday party at Neil's amazing cabin last weekend, and the cabin could not have been more perfect. It's spacious, well decorated, and clean, and it had everything we needed and more! Also the views were awesome, and we really enjoyed the hot tub and grill. And Neil was a pleasure to work with! Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend!
This was our third year In a row my Family has rented from Home Away. The cabins are beautiful, very spacious and clean. I/we feel that the attention given to the layout is outstanding. We had 11 people with us and there was plenty of room. As far as location to the Ski Resorts, they are less than 15 minutes away. Perfect. Also the Owner made sure that the driveway was plowed and the steps going into the cabin had salt, It was never an Issue getting to the Cabin no matter what the weather. Large bedrooms with plenty of closet space, 2 fireplaces and electric heat, made it cozy with the temperature outside being in the teens.
You're headed to the semi-wilderness with a bunch of friends in the dead of winter. Place stays warm with sub-freezing weather for three days. A handy liaison to the owner pops in to poll you on our experience thus far. It is dope, because you are living in someone else's house which happens to be a log cabin, for the rest of the weekend. Three stories, real wood, high ceilings, full kitchen, so many bathrooms. Nothing went wrong but the handy guy is next door. Reasonable price for 15 and even with so many bodies in one space it never felt cramped. Seems like they may have been only a handful or possibly just one builder as the houses look similar from the outside; in fact, we stayed in an identical version of this house 3 years prior just down the street. Can't go wrong with another is my theory but this one is empirically NOICE. 9/9
My second stay here was just as good as the first. The house is very spacious and easily accommodated our group of fourteen. Plenty of room to gather or separate as needed. We hung around the house all weekend and only left for a quick grocery run. Great hot tub that comfortably fits four. The house has a great view, privacy, feels woodsy, but is still close to civilization.We will absolutely be back for round three next year! Neil is great to work with, provides the essentials, and is very accommodating. No surprises. Fourteen satisfied adults and a very happy pooch.
The negatives I have for the property are the closeness to other cabins. Cabin was only about 50 feet away. Also had a large party some didn't bring towels for showering not many there. Plenty of positives. The view was unbelievable from elevated deck with hot tub. As I said had a party of 16 but never felt that way plenty of space for everybody. Property and cabin were very clean upon arrival. Also kitchen had all things needed for cooked meals. I would recommend and rebook if need a place in the future
My family had a fantastic stay at the cabin. The place is very clean, well-kept and well- equipped. This cabin, thus far, has been the best! The view from the upper deck was amazing -- overlooking the mountains. The kitchen is well-equipped. Toilet papers are provided. Little things that you need are there. Our family from Canada and Maryland really enjoyed their stay. Neil, the owner, can be easily contacted and will make sure your stay is the best as can be! I highly recommend this place and we would love to, again, stay there in the near future.
This was the perfect home for our friend reunion. The house is wonderful and the exposed wood really added to the mountain experience. We had 10 guys there for the weekend, and everyone was able to have a bed to themselves. The house was stocked with everything we needed, and Neil even brought us extra pre-chopped firewood after we went through the first batch. We took advantage of the hot tub with a beautiful view overlooking the mountain. The house is very conveniently located. We went hiking one day and whitewater rafting the next--all within a short drive. I would definitely recommend this for any large groups and families, looking for a relaxed stay in the mountains.
We were hoping to get a quiet weekend away with a beautiful view and that is exactly what we got. The mountain view chalet was exceptionally clean with stunning views. I highly recommend this property as well as Neil. He couldn't have been more accommodating and professional. We will surely be back next year!
This house had plenty of sleeping options, more than enough for our group of 8. The hot tub was used a lot and the views never disappointed. We cooked all of our meals in the kitchen, which had plenty of prep space and ample pans. Make sure you bring your own salt / pepper / olive oil! The house was very close to the Turnpike / I-80. It was very easy to get to. We did our grocery shopping at the White Haven Market and they had everything we needed. We did some hiking at Hickory Run State Park which was about 35 min away. We would definitely rent from Neil again!
We are one in four families who had the pleasure of staying at Neil's house for thanksgiving weekend. We had a wonderful time. The place has everything from clean sheets (and lots of extra blankets) to a fully equipped kitchen. We brought so many things with us we never used since all is in there. The jacuzzi is so much fun and clean. the views are breathtaking and everything works (two tv fireplace and so on) We would love to come back there and would defiantly recommend it to our friends Neil texted us the whole time making sure all is ok and if we need anything - much appreciated.
This is the ultimate family getaway! While it was a little further away from camelback then we would've liked, it was still an enjoyable stay and an easy ride to get to where we needed to go. Absolutely gorgeous & spacious home, with stunning views. We had 7 adults & 7 children staying and we all had a GREAT time! Thank you Neil for sharing your beautiful home with us.
You owe it to yourself and your friends/family to rent this magnificent house. We only got to spend a weekend here, but it exceeded our every expectation (even my two teenaged nephews were surprisingly impressed). I guarantee you will not be disappointed with the furnishings, the view, the wild "visitors" and the many amenities here. Get up to Mountain Vista ASAP!! Life is too short!!
Another great weekend at this home! This is our second annual trip staying here and it was perfect. The house is exactly what you want for a weekend in the Poconos - tucked back a bit with a beautiful view. Plenty of space for a group and stocked with everything you'd need. The house is clean and well laid out. Looking forward to next year.
Everything was better than expected! Lovey cozy warm cabin. The cabin/house was larger than it seemed in pictures! The view were spectacular! We really made great use of the hottub and fire pit. Any question or any thing we needed Neil was right there for us.
We came for the long thanksgiving weekend with our extended family (12 of us). We had such a perfect weekend. The House was clean, comfy and large! With fun amenities and great stuff nearby. But we honestly barely left the house. Used the fire pit the hot tub the TVs, played games etc etc!
8 adults and 8 kids stayed for a long weekend and found the house to be in excellent condition, comfortable and with everything that we needed. The owner was very responsive to a few questions we had during our stay and offered an early check in as well as an late check out. It snowed about 4 inches overnight and we awoke to find the porch step shoveled and salted. Ample firewood for the fire pit. Hot tub was nice with excellent views. We will definitely rent again.
Our group of six couples stayed here in February and this house was everything we expected and more! There was plenty of room - two open spaces for people to gather if you have a large group, with bedrooms and full bathrooms on every floor. The kitchen had everything we could have needed, all of the appliances worked without a problem. Everyone I communicated with was incredibly accommodating and responsive, we truly could not have asked for a better experience! Now our group is looking forward to summer so we can enjoy the deck a little more and use the fire pit at night. If we are back in the area, we'll definitely be booking this house again!
We could not have ask for a better weekend away in the beautiful Mountain Vista. The house was very well appointed. All of the beds were made when we arrived and the home was very well taken care of. The view from the deck was amazing and we relaxed in the hot tub - the nights were cool and it was perfect! My one recommendation would be to bring aluminum foil for baking/cooking and a clean sponge for the kitchen sink.
