"Two families, four adults and eight children, stayed in this amazing home for a week. We had the most amazing time. Thank you so much for allowing us time in your wonderful home. Also we are still talking about the amenities. My sisters and I played bingo! The best! The kids LOVED the private beaches, and we took the opportunity to take a drive to NYC and Philadelphia for a day! We will likely be staying again this year!"

"My friends and I have an unfortunate habit of deciding a week before major holidays that we want to get out of town. This always leaves us scrambling to find a place to rent. Frank's home in the Poconos was available and Frank was prompt in his responses. He was even willing to accommodate our potentially oversized group! The house was located within 10 minutes of a grocery store, a liquor store, a beer mart, great pizza and an amazing butcher shop, which was well suited for our plan to spend the weekend vacillating between drunk and food coma. Which we did. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely come back!
Some pros and cons:
-Enough beds for an eight-person group, including two single people
-Great front porch with charcoal grill
-Lots of natural light from front windows
-Nice backyard seating area with benches and table
-Large kitchen table accommodated our whole group
-Kitchen was well stocked with appliances and tools
-No nearby neighbors
-Beautiful back yard and neighborhood (fully half the group went on walks or runs because it was so nice)
-Nearby lake had activities and was a great area to spend an afternoon
-Ceiling fans in the bedrooms!
-There wasn't enough light in the living room after dark. We had a lot of crafters and board gamers in our group, and it got difficult to see our work and fight for table space in the well-lit kitchen area.
-Downstairs with pool table and additional TV was very humid, even while running the dehumidifier. We only used the space on the first night but slipped so much on the slick tile that we ended up going outside instead.
-There was a fire pit in the back yard that was expressly forbidden from use. I don't know if it was a stipulation from the owner or a local ordinance, but we would've really liked to have been able to use that.
-As we were leaving on the last day there was a distinct sewage smell from the downstairs bathroom. We hadn't had that issue the entire weekend, and it could have just been from one of the guys not admitting to a particularly pungent bowel movement, but we were concerned."

"The house was a nice size- and a big plus was that is was pet friendly- my family really enjoyed their stay. Interactions with the owner were good- he responded fast and was very easy to work with. I'd recommend this house to friends and family!"

"Perfect time of the year to visit the Poconos. Lisa and Rich have really made this home one of the best places we have stayed. The gift basket and wine were truly a nice touch. The home is very large - there were just two of us for the week. The home is spotless upon your arrival. TV's in just about every room. The sunroom is so peaceful with the skylights. Kitchen has everything you need to cook. Lisa called us upon our arrival to make sure we were settled in and if we needed anything else. And we could ask the neighbor if we needed anything too. Our days were filled with walks around Locust Lake and short sightseeing excursions around the Poconos. This home is definitely one that people should consider to rent if visiting the area. It is close to the lake for summer fun activities. Will be back to rent this home."
