I had my bachelorette party here and we feel absolutely in love with this place! It was very spacious, very homely and fun! It accommodated all of us girls- 12. The game room and the jacuzzi was icing on the cake! We even want to make an annual trip here called - girls getaway! Please do yourself justice and try it out!
Great location, walking distance to the lake and restaurants! We came down with a group of friends for the weekend and had a fantastic time. The home has been well maintained and Anya was quick to respond to any questions or comments we had. Overall it was a terrific experience and would recommend to anyone considering renting!
Pros: - Very friendly, responsive host - House has pretty much everything you would need - In an area with a lot to do including hiking, water sports etc. - Was easy for us to get to (NYC) - Great value Cons: - The only thing I can think about is that some of the bedrooms are slightly on the small side but we spent so much time enjoying the outdoor activities, the large living room and the game area on the first floor that it wasn't a huge deal I would definitely go back so I have no hesitation in recommending the place. Thanks for a fun stay!!!
My friends and I decided to book a weekend getaway for a fun reunion in the Poconos. We couldn't be more happier with our decision. We loved the house and all it had to offer. We were a large group but fit very comfortable, with plenty of beds and seating around a large table. Everyone agreed that it was the house that made this weekend a success. A big thank you to the owners, who are very nice and accommodating and made us feel right at home. You can't go wrong staying here. It's perfect for a large group or even just a cozy stay for a family.
We loved staying at lake harmony. The location of the home is perfect and you can see big boulder from the deck. The amenities and appliances are all up to date. We really enjoyed our stay. We have young kids and this house was super kid friendly. The owner was also very nice and flexible. Would definitely stay here again!
This is a clean, well-stocked house that is a perfect base for either exploring the area or just staying put and enjoying the amenities. The large, immaculate hot tub is a great way to end your day either way. The owners were very accommodating and the house was in great shape when we arrived. The game + TV room downstairs is a great way to spend some time if the weather is not cooperating. We will be back!
The Game room is awesome. We were a group of 10 and a place having 5 bedrooms was a huge plus. Had an initial hiccup where in the towels we had paid extra for was not in place. However, Anya did get someone to drop it to off later in the evening. The Hot tub was nice.. but the one thing that stands out the most in the house is the Game room.
Stayed here for a long weekend with myself and six friends and it was an awesome time. The house was perfect. Plenty of room to hold 7 dudes and plenty of things to keep us entertained: hot tub for 8, pool table, air hockey, 2 tvs, and a large upstairs living room with a decent sized kitchen. An easy drive to mount airy casino and also a short drive to Jim Thorpe. Anya was reachable at all times before, during, and after the trip. She made the whole process very easy and was extremely thorough so there's no guess work with what to expect. Overall great stay!
We went away for a girls weekend. We are all Mom's and do our getaway once a year. This was our first time in Lake Harmony. The house had enough room for all of us. The back deck was the main hang out place. There is a brand new hot tub too! It was close to the lake and all the main hot spots. The house was clean and the downstairs had a pool table, foosball table and air hockey. We would rent again.
Perfect place for an adult getaway and a family getaway. The house was amazing. Brand new huge hottub was such an nice feature! Bottom Floor was a great party room to play games and hang out. The deck was our favorite place to relax and enjoy the view and pocono air. As for location....the lake was so close, the restaurants were 2 minutes away. Great nightlife! Thanks again Anya and family for a wonderful stay! The "girls getaway" crew!
Pictures on VRBO must have been taken 10-15 years ago! The place is worn out, and very dirty. The entire house smells musty and moldy. The gas grill and burners are so encrusted with grease and dirt, it took 45 minutes to cook burgers, and that was after we spent 30 minutes trying to clean it. The dials on the grill just spin around. We had to light it with matches, as the igniter does not work either! The "2 full tank of propane" were empty and we had to go out and get one filled before we were able to cook. We paid extra for bed linens and towels ($200.00 extra) and we did not get washcloths. We bought some when we went to get the propane. The "full" kitchen has barely any cookware. There was no TV cable service as advertised, so we could not watch anything late at night after our daytime excursions. One of the showers is only tall enough for a child, so we couldn't use it, as we were all average size adults. We made the best of it, but would never recommend this rental to anyone!
Dear Mary, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our home. I apologize for the dirty grill, it was missed. A serious conversation took place with the manager of our cleaning service. We specifically bought a top of the line Weber grill in April 2016 so that our guests can enjoy the outdoor grilling experience. There is no excuse for a dirty grill. Musty smell does happen in Pocono houses around this time of the year. And probably nothing can be done. This smell happens when the house is empty for a week, but it goes away after a few hours of opening windows/doors and/or turning on fans/air conditioning. Any Pocono homeowner or realtor can confirm this. They even have a special word for it: "The Pocono smell". The house is all above ground, which helps; and, 6 months ago we also removed old carpets from the ground floor and installed new floors to alleviate this problem. The "shower for kids" is in the top floor bedroom that does not have space for a full size shower, but we decided to install it, because we felt it is important to have 3 full bathrooms in the house. This is my parent's bedroom; yet my father, who is 6' tall and not of slim build, has not had any issues fitting into the shower. This may be due to the fact that he loves the house and goes there whenever it is not rented, so it does not bother him. Throughout the many years of owning the house, this is the first complaint we have ever received about it being an issue. Best, Anya For anyone reading this review- please feel free to reach out to be directly or see other review for reference purposes.
Anya is a great landlord and runs her property professionally and well: we met her grounds/property keeper and she's fantastic! The layout is ideal for entertaining groups (we had 12 people) while still having little areas to get away and enjoy some time alone. Everything went smoothly and we were very happy with our time at her place and would consider it again! My nieces loved blowing bubbles off the deck! If you have younger kids you'll want to drive to the beach (2 mins?) versus walking. It's a bit hilly. Something to keep in mind is that as it stands (Aug 2016) the property is a little bit worn from being a professionally rented property: deck could be stained, basement floors and gaming tables have obvious use. If you've rented a bunch of places, don't let this deter you. This is in MUCH better condition than most units. BUT, if you're looking for a pristine property on the upper level of luxury, you might want to keep looking. My opinion is you won't find better for this number of bedrooms and price range in Lake Harmony. We knew what to expect and were quite happy: set your expectations accordingly as we did and you'll have a great time. Highly recommended! My brother wants me to share that he beat the Mortal Kombat game in the basement and challenges you to beat his high score.
Six adults and 3 grandsons, aged 3 to 8 years old, had a great time. The house was clean and comfortable. We all had fun in the game room throughout our stay. The house was convenient to swimming, boating, fishing, and a nearby water park. The boys were wowed by a herd of deer on our walk to the lake. Very enjoyable.
Had a great stay with 8 other guests. Plenty of space, the upper level deck was our hang out spot. House was very clean and as expected as described from discription. Played paintball 15 minutes from house. Restaurant and local bars within a 10 minute walk. Great views, highly recommend, will return in the future!!
The home is great. Big open kitchen that is very usable and well stocked with all the necessary cooking supplies- we cooked pretty intensively both nights we were there. Deck and backyard are beautiful. Grill is nice. Hot tub is hot and big and the pool table is of good quality. Everything was clean and as expected. Short walk from the lake which is idyllic. I definitely recommend this home.
We celebrated my husband's 50th here with a bunch of family, and couldn't have picked a better location! The house is in beautiful surroundings, very well maintained and extremely comfortable. Anya was very helpful and responsive during the booking process and with our preparations for the weekend. She even let us check out late with no problem so we could enjoy our last day a little longer. We loved the hot tub, the little beach where we played volleyball and kayaked on the lake, and we loved relaxing on the second story deck, BBQing and taking in the view. It rained while we were here, but the house was comfortable enough that being indoors was no worry. Thanks Anya for sharing your place with us. It was a great experience, we will definitely come back and do it again sometime!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Anya's house. It was a beautiful house with fantastic views. There was tons to do both in the house and just a short walk away at the lake. The house was well maintained and the welcome packet contained all the information we needed. Anya was prompt in responding to any questions we had while at her house. Highly recommended.
We had a group of 10 stay from Friday to Sunday. The house was great, though the jacuzzi was not operational during our stay. The house fit everyone and was great during our down time to hang out. We loved the air hockey table, pool table and arcade game! The location is great as well, we were within walking distance to the restaurants!
Thank you for your stay! We have purchased a new hot tub to replace the broken one.
We stayed only for a couple of days at the end of April and although the weather didn't cooperate much, loved every minute of it. There were 12 of us (10 adults, 2 kids) and the space was more than enough to accommodate all. Although the house is very big, it is still very warm and homey. We got the fireplace roaring and gathered round to talk and play games. Everyone loved it. Any food shopping is just a short drive away. We stocked up the beautiful kitchen and cooked delicious dishes. Everything you might need is right there in the house. We played many a pool game on the ground floor and enjoyed the hot tub even though it was pretty cold outside. The lake is a few minutes away. We walked there just to enjoy the view but I bet that in warm weather it's a delight to go canoeing or kayaking. The owner, Anya, was a really nice person and very prompt at answering any questions and even extended our check out time - no problem. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Good location for the house. We were able to hit both Jack Frost and Big Boulder as well as some local restaurants. We also thoroughly enjoyed watching the DVD of "Hardball" that was provided for us. The game room was a nice touch as well, which included pool and Mortal Kombat. Although we never could get past Scorpion... Anya was very accommodating and made sure everything was in order by the time we arrived. The property was well-maintained. Thanks
My friends and I had a great weekend at this house. The house was clean, well-maintained, and in a great location. We were unlucky with the weather (it rained most of the weekend), so the fact the house was so inviting was really clutch. Little details like providing a Y-cord for the stereo to hook up our phones to play music was a really nice touch. Also, Anya was a great host who provided quick responses to all of our questions. She also provided a welcome packet that was helpful throughout the weekend. Would definitely recommend this house.
My friends and I had such a lovely time at this house. It was nice, cozy, and was able to accommodate a 10 person group with plenty of room to spare. The house is well maintained. It's definitely a great place to head to if you want to sneak away from the city life. Additionally, Anya was an amazing host. She was so quick to reply to my inquiry and she provided us with everything we needed (activities, food, etc) in her welcome packet. I will definitely be going back sometime soon!
We had a family reunion party with 8 adults and 4 kids starting from Sep 27 to Sep 29 2015. To start with, the owner of the property Ms Anya was very courteous and responsive. She was quick to respond to my calls & mails and made sure we had a great time at this property. The property is well maintained and had all the facilities for a family to enjoy. My picks : 1. The gaming room was great. 2. The outdoor patio with barbeque and dinning table was the best to spend the afternoons. 3. Had a great kitchen with all the required amenities. 4. Bedrooms were decent enough to have a good night sleep :) Overall we had a great time and enjoyed our stay. It was truly comfortable & cozy :)
Several of my friends from college all got together for labor day weekend. The house was beautiful, the surrounding area was peaceful, and Anya was extremely helpful! During the day we played beach volleyball and went swimming at Lake Harmony (the beach area was a little small but still fun). For dinner we went over to Nick's Lakehouse, which is only a five minute drive from the house, and enjoyed a fantastic dinner accompanied by a live band. The house itself was a little pricey, but well worth it if you're looking for a nice getaway along with fun outdoor activities!
Went to the house with a group of my friends and we all had a great time. The house is very nice and is also very well kept and it made the vacation even more enjoyable! I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking at this House to definitely do it! It is well worth the money you pay and I look forward to staying in this house in the future!
A group of friends and I have been wanting to try out whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River, so we scheduled a trip on a dam release day and boy was it fun! During our trip, we wanted to stay locally and we wanted to all rent a house together. We found this house and all had a blast. This house has it all - pool table, flat screen TVs (We were able to watch the Women's World Cup matches), old school arcade game, windows with a great view, a hot tub, and to our benefit, a brand new grill that was added to the back deck the week before we got there! The weather did not cooperate during our trip (it was rainy and a high of 57 degrees in late June), but it was okay because the rafting trip went on and we were able to come back to a fun house to take shelter in the evening when we were done. Anya is wonderful to work with. She communicates well and responds to your questions quickly. She is very reasonable and wants everyone to have a great time so that they come back. In the contract is says to inquire about late checkouts (and we did!) because if the house is not booked on your day of departure, Anya is welcome to the late checkout so that you have time to get everything in order and complete the checkout list without rushing through the cleanup tasks. Thanks for everything Anya!
My group and I had an amazing time during our stay. The house is spacious but also cozy, which was an important factor in my bringing different friend groups together. The lower level was a hit due to the game room and hot tub outside; not to mention, we were conveniently located near a grocery store and at a walkable distance from the lake among other amenities; the parking was also convenient. Our stay was definitely a memorable one. In addition, Anya was very easy to work with; she is very responsive, understanding, and responsible -- all qualities I sought in a homeowner before making an official transaction. For those looking to book for the summer, I recommend bringing bug spray as bugs are naturally rampant near the house due to the greens and humidity. Nonetheless, I would definitely recommend this house to a friend and gladly book for another stay.
We stayed at this home during April 17th weekend. The accommodation was as expected and very good. Personally I would like to give lot of credit to Anya. Anya was very helpful and she was very quick respond to the emails and phone calls even during the weekend. The house is spacious and very close to nearby attractions. I would definitely recommend this home to everyone!
We stayed in this home over Thanksgiving week with four adults and four children. The home was inviting and warm with lots of space. Our kids all had fun in the basement/game room and loved playing outside in the snow. There are lots of beds and the kitchen is spacious. We went to a nearby indoor water park and had a ball. I would recommend this holiday home!
Stayed in this house for 3 nights with a group of 8 friends. Anya was responsive and great to work with while setting up the arrangements. Once we arrived, the house was exactly as pictured. All the kitchen appliances were clean and up to date. Great location with the patio facing the backyard (as opposed to the road). All in all, a great house to stay at for a weekend getaway! One note: linens are not included in the rental, so you will need to arrange for towels/linens through a separate linen company (Anya can provide a recommendation).
We were a group of ten (8 adults and 2 children). Stayed 5 nights. Everyone had a great time. The place was very clean and we'll kept as advertised. The owner is very nice and accommodating. Instructions were clear and the booking process very simple. It is very well equipped. They have all the essentials, just bring your personal stuff. It is a beautiful place to spend with family and close friends. Highly recommend it.
Thank you Anya for making our Summer vacation a memorable one. This is our first time in the Poconos and certainly will not be our last. The house is beautiful and located in a private area of the neighborhood. The house is spacious for three families and we enjoyed all it had to offer. We split our time in the kitchen, the game room, the deck, and the jacuzzi. We are already planning to come back next year. Anya has been great from the start of the planning process as she had answered all our questions within 24hrs. We would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for a quite time away from the City and looking to unwind and recharge you mental and physical batteries. Thanks again Anya for sharing your wonderful and practical house with us!
We rented this place for the Easter Weekend .... we were 3 families with a bunch of energetic kids planning a spring break and as we were browsing we chanced upon this property. Of the many choices, we went ahead with this one based on the reviews. And it turned out to be just perfect .... its a very cosy house [my daughter has taken a fancy for the bedroom in the attic - she thinks it looks straight out of Goldilocks]. The view from the deck was awesome - overlooking the ski slopes! The house was very well kept, all appliances in perfect working condition and the owners were very professional and courteous - they have it all figured out for the guests after the reservation. The initial plan was to spend the whole of Saturday at the Splitrock Waterpark and the lakefront but eventually ended up being home most of the time :-) We are already looking forward to going back for our next vacation .....
My friends and I rented this home for three nights. There were only six of us and there was so much room. With the two couches upstairs and the two couches downstairs you can definitely fit a larger group. The homeowner, Anya, was easy to work with. She also sent a great welcome letter that explained everything you'd need to know. The hot tub overlooking the slopes in the back was great! There's a nice size kitchen with a large table to eat at that was open to the living room. There are two decks with great outdoor seating. We loved the house and would definitely come back again.
What a pleasant stay at this cozy home! We had a large group and the house accommodated comfortably with room for everyone and common areas that were perfect for large group dinners and gatherings. The home was clean, well maintained, beautifully decorated and a pleasure to enjoy. The location is quiet and peaceful and we even saw baby deer come by in the morning!
My friends and I stayed here for a weekend to go skiing. The house was big, beautiful, and had everything we needed for comfort! The location was perfect, with access to the slopes, diners, and bars. Anya was super helpful from the beginning, with constant access for questions and communication. My group had such an amazing time, and intend on coming back and staying here!
This home was BETTER than the listing! Clean and ready to go the minute we walked in...We were a family of 8 with kids from 9 - 25, and each one of them enjoyed the house and it's offerings. The layout and amenities offered out family much enjoyment together and we would definitely recommend and visit this home again! Thank you Anya for being so helpful and thorough. 5 STARS!!!!
I echo others' reviews about this pretty, clean, and well-situated house as well as the rental process. We had a great weekend away at this house that accommodated everyone nicely and had a layout that facilitated cooking and socializing. Highly recommended!
We are a very busy family, always on the run, working, school, etc. I would like to sincerely thank you for opening your home to us! From the moment we walked in the door it was like a home away from home! Everything was Great! The house was gorgeous. The whole family was there. We did a whole lot of nothing and enjoyed every moment of it. The Escape to your home was just what we needed. We would not hesitate to do this again.
The house was impeccable upon arrival, everything was working and well maintained. The listing description was very accurate. We loved the hot tub and the pool table. In addition, the location of the house and its closeness to the lake is a PLUS. Also, the availability of Anya to quickly answer all our questions and concerns made our experience exceptional and wonderful. We really enjoyed our summer getaway! My group is definitely coming back!
My family had a wonderful time in Lake Harmony at this beautiful home. The house was clean when we arrived and we were very happy with the layout. We enjoyed the game room and hot tub. It was just a short walk to the lake. My kids want to come back during snowboarding season to enjoy the view of the slopes from the deck and hot tub. Anya was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for an awesome week!
My friends and I rented this awesome place for my birthday. It was an incredible time and experience. The house was in great shape, neat, and organized. The kitchen is huge, for those who love to cook, and a grill on the outside deck makes the experience even better. The neighborhood itself was very peaceful and quiet. The location was also great. Nearby was a indoor water park, lake, shopping centers, and even a movie theater. If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would. We enjoyed ourselves and had a blast. Will be coming back before the end of summer!
My family and I rented this house for a long weekend filled with golf and relaxing. This house was perfect for us! The downstairs has a perfect room for hanging out. There are a couple of couches, TV and a great pool table. There is a big deck complete with a hot tub. The upstairs was nice and open and allowed for watching movies, playing cards and cooking elaborate dinners. The view from the top deck was fantastic.Altogether, this was a perfect house to rent and we are already planning on grabbing this house again next year!! I/We highly recommend renting this house for family trips, weekends with friends or just to get away from everything and relax.
Had an excellent time at this house, excellent location, very close to bbjf and spilt rock, short ride to parkway and all the poconos has to offer. The house was very nice, pool table was great, hot tub was ok, had everything we need except firewood and hand towels.
We all really enjoyed our weekend in the poconos. The house was very nice and clean when e arrived.The older children enjoyed the basement with the pool table and the big screen tv. The view from the deck was amazing and every night at dusk we enjoyed watching families of deer. Anya was a pleasure to deal with. Hoping to return next year.
Amazing location in the heart of lake harmony. A stones throw away from Big Boulder Ski Resort and a 5-10 minute drive to Jack Frost. Great for groups or families. The hot tub was a plus and the game room was an added bonus. House was clean and comfortable and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable as well.
Really enjoyed our stay at this great ski chalet. Was everything it was advertised as. My wife wanted all our 5 kids and their spouses together for her birthday at a beautiful location, and that's exactly what she got! Wonderful weekend and wonderful house. Recommend this property to all!
This was our first time as a family renting a home. We did not know what the experience would be like, we figured we try this and all spend New Year's Eve weekend together. The experience turned out to be a great one. I initially emailed Anya via vrbo.com and she responded back right away answering all of my questions. She thoroughly explained the entire process of renting her home, what activities would be available within the area during the time we wanted to stay at the home, and so forth. Working with Anya was a pleasant experience as she made sure that any questions and/or concerns we might have as a family renting the home were answered. The house: It is a very nice home, spacious and comfortable. We had 9 adults and 2 children and it was perfect. The 5 bedroom house easily accommodated our entire family. The house was super clean when we arrived and it felt like we just walked into our home. Everything was as described by the listing description. The neighborhood: We came up during a bad snowstorm, and it was nice to see that the roads were plowed pretty fast within the entire area. We took walks to the Lake every day, and everyone we ran into was super nice. Overall experience was a pretty good one. Everyone got a chance to relax and enjoy each other's company as we as a family rarely all go on a vacation together. I thank Anya and Pavel for making this experience a good one. We look forward to coming back to Lake Harmony and staying at this home again in the future.
We stayed here with a group of friends over a weekend and the place was amazing. The house was perfect for a larger group and came furnished with just about everything you could want. Everyone in the group was impressed with the home. Great location - 10 minutes’ drive from Jack Frost Ski Resort, walking distance to the Lake Harmony and nice restaurants. Very impressive view from the window – ski slops and mountains. Very clean and beautiful house with a modern kitchen, sunny living room and deck, perfect game room! Made for a great weekend and it will be at the top of my list to stay at again the future.
My extended family arrived Friday night and could immediately relax and enjoy each other's company. The kids naturally gravitated to the lower level with pool table and big screen TV. We adults enjoyed the hot tub at night with a view of Big Boulder. No need to constantly load the dishwasher as there were plenty of dishes to feed our party of 12!
The place was very nice and comfortable and the owner Anya was very friendly and responsive to emails. The place comfortably fit 8 people and there was another room on the bottom floor that we did not use. Our only disappointment was not even about the house, but that the boat rentals on Lake Harmony were not open. It is very difficult to find someone to speak to at Lake Harmony / Split Rock and get answers and almost impossible to find information online. We were really looking forward to fishing on the lake, but were not able to go without a boat. As a substitute, Hickory Run State Park nearby was very nice for hiking and stream fishing.
This place was great! Very clean and spacious. We stayed here with a group of friends for a long weekend (would also be great for a family vacation). The owners are amazing and very helpful with providing all of the details/any assistance you need. There are several great restaurants in the area, and the house is in a great location right near the lake and slopes. We will defintely rent again!
The house was spacious and comfortable- a great place to unplug for a long weekend. Our group enjoyed cooking dinner every night and relaxing by the fireplace. Anya was great to work with, she was extremely quick and thorough with her responses. She made booking and checking out simple and easy.
We recently went to the Poconos for a Family getaway and this house was perfect for us. We loved the open layout of the main living space, which made it great to be in the kitchen but still be part of the party. The house was so clean and had everything that we needed. The kids loved the downstairs area and the adults enjoyed the view off the deck. It was an easy walk to the lake. Anya was so easy to work with and our only complaint is that we didn't stay long enough. We hope to return soon and stay longer. Thanks for opening your home to our family, we had a memorial weekend!!!
Me and five of my friends recently stayed at this property to play paintball at skirmish. We had a wonderful time. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean and well stocked, the ac worked great and the hot tub was an awesome addition. Best of all skirmish was only a twenty to thirty minute drive away. The decks had a great view and the house came with plenty to do. The owner of the property was extremely helpful and easy to communicate with. She really made the stay an easy thing to organize. All in all we had great time and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Thanks to Anya and her family for such an amazing wedding experience! Our family had a small wedding on the property and it was absolutely perfect. The house and scenery were breathtaking (the pictures on this website do not do it justice) and we couldnt have asked for a more perfect week. My family and my husband's family from England stayed and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. (the boys LOVED mortal combat) Any help we needed during the week was met straight away as well as preparations for the wedding the month before hand. Thanks again for going above and beyond what was required of you and taking care of us so well. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone seeking a great family vacation.
It has become somewhat of a tradition for my friends and I to travel to the Poconos for weekends to celebrate special occasions. Many houses we have come across have seemed sub paar, but not this one! Not only was this house extremely clean and well put together, the small decorative peices made us feel like home. Having mortal kombat and the pool table definitely gave the men in our group something to do during the odd hours of the night. The location of the house was great. Although we never left the premises there were many things to do in the area and the small town nearby was very cute and accessible. Anya, the homeowner, was always quick to respond to the many questions that I had and her small touches such as the welcome gift made me feel very welcomed. In all I would recommend this property to all of my friends.
Our group of friends had a fantastic time here! The house is beautiful and big enough that our group never felt crowded, but not so big you feel like your on separate vacations. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool table, grille, and the many deer sightings! Anya was very friendly andanswered all of our questions promptly. We will definitely be back.
We stayed at this beautiful house for 4 nights over New Years. The house is perfect - and the pictures are what you will see. It's spacious and comfortable. We had 9 people in our late 20's early 30's spend the holiday together and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect house to be together in. The house itself is comfortable where we didn't feel on top of each other - with a family room and a living room and pool table on separate floors. The hot tub was a huge selling point - and you will not be disappointed! We were 10-15 min away from Jack Frost - which was great! Overall, the house comes with everything you need - and it's spacious where you can enjoy time together or get alone time if that's what you need. The owners were super nice in accommodating our needs and answering our questions. It was our first time renting a house through VRBO and we had such an incredible experience that we are looking fwd to doing it again. If you're looking to get away to the Pocono's with friends or family this house is really everything you need...we hope to visit it again soon!!
We had a great weekend. The five bedrooms and 2 different spacious living areas worked well for our family! The house was very comfortable and clean. We were all excited to see deer each day, coming to within a few feet of the deck! The owner was wonderful to work with- very pleasant and eager to answer all of my questions!
First thing that comes to my mind is the beautiful view of Big boulder from the deck. We visited this place in Dec 2011 for a family get together. It is a well kept place, fully equipped for a vacation getaway. The house is split in 3 levels which I feel is awesome, all the kids can occupy the lower level where there is a gaming area, pool table, outdoor view, hot tub etc with great sense of privacy. Good restaurants open till late night, conveniently located near the house. To top it, the owner is extremely responsive to any queries and thrive to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
We stayed at this comfortable and spacious chalet in December of 2011, a party of 10. Skiing is in a short distance. Even those of us not skiing could enjoy watching other people going down the slopes of the Big Boulder until the lights went off late at night. The neighborhood is great for walking and has quite a few restaurants. However, we enjoyed spending time at home playing pool, watching the fireplace and a bit of TV. The owners have two large sets on different levels. Bedrooms and bathrooms are conveniently located and offer enough privacy for a quiet time, if needed. Will definitely come back.
We stayed in this beautiful house with a couple of friends, and really enjoyed the time spent there. The house is very comfortable, lots of sun in the living/dining room area. Apparently, the owners want to make sure that guests have all they need: I was pleasantly surprised that the bathrooms are provided with hair dryers, toilet paper and even body wash. The view from the house is stunningly beautiful. Although I am not a "winter" person, I enjoyed beautiful scenery of nature, lakes and mountains. Would love to go back in spring and summer to enjoy the lake.
