Incredible home inclusive of all that we had hoped for!!!
For the past 20 years, my college brothers and I go away once/year to enjoy some time away and with one another. We contacted the owner of this property, Barry, who was extremely responsive and helpful in optimizing both the home and the local area.
The home had all of the amenities we could hope for including a pool and ping pong table! Everything was incredibly clean and updated. The fire pit out back was spacious and private of which enabled us to enjoy some great fellowship!
I plan a vacation with my family each year and will be utilizing this home for this purpose too.
Thank you for such a great place of which afforded us such a memorable time! I highly recommend it...
Great smaller house for a weekend getaway. 12 people comfortable
The place is just being finished up so has some ruff around the edges aspects but overall a very nice house. Nice pool table and ping pong area. Fire pit is very nice. Location is nice, in the woods but quick access to food, stores and entertainment. Great time in Camelback doing the roller coaster and zip lines. Fire. Jacuzzi. Owner was responsive with the few issues we had. Would recommend to anyone who wants a nice, clean place to stay with plenty to do while your inside or out. Thanks
Our short stay was a fantastic experience With the hot tub games pool and the 3 bathrooms made a difference. We are looking forward our return trip to the Poconos oh and you have to eat at the terra cottage!
Great time and price.
Early Fall vacation was everything we hoped it would be and more. Just needed to get a away to relax and enjoy
some peace and quiet, but we also ended up doing many of the fun things offered in the area. A lot of which are free. Spending money to go away (even though the price was great) is expected ,but finding so many things like Frisbee golf , boulder field hiking and strolling around Jim Thorpe PA cost nothing was an added bonus.
Some in the group never wanted to
leave the house since the kids had everything the needed to have fun without stepping outside and let us relax in the hot tub while they entertained themselves for large portions of time. We now plan on making this an annual trip.
Would give more than five stars if we could. And as a plus, Barry the owner is very helpful in providing tips
on things to do in the area and promptly answered any questions we had.
Short Notice Family Vacation
Nice, clean house with access to a private beach and good restaurants nearby. This was the first time I had rented in the Poconos. Barry was very helpful with information about the local area and answers questions promptly.
We had an amazing week at Barry's house. We were 4 adults, 2 infants and a dog, and had much more space than we needed. The house was clean, had everything we needed, and was located right near the Lake Harmony beach. The grill was used every night, fire pit was great, and there was pool, ping-pong and a PS4 to keep the adults busy during downtime.
The Lake was amazing, and we were able to explore a lot of the area from Barry's suggestions that he provided upon booking. He was incredibly fast to respond with any question (literally within 5 minutes to any email or text) and the entire process of check-in and check-out was seamless.
Would definitely visit again and highly recommend this house or any other of Barry's accommodations - he is a great host!
