Amazing Family Vacation
This was a wonderful home and had amenities for every member of our family to enjoy. The game Room and hot tub were great, as well as the fire pit. The home is even more spacious than it looks in the photos. There is also a small park with swings and a basketball hoop just steps away. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. We definitely recommend to those with school age kids and adults!
Very Pretty & Homey!
We had a really nice time. The restaurants and attractions, outlets/snow tubing are approx. 20-30 min drives, but that was ok. The house has everything needed and the hot tub was a big plus! Everything was very clean. Thank you for having us.
Super clean, comfortable & relaxing!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary and loved it. We had fun relaxing in the hot tub, sitting by the fire pit, playing games, and cooking out. The entire house was very clean which is very important to me. We were a little disappointed about the lake size but it turned out to be ok! We took a little walk around the lake and watched a huge snapping turtle come out of the water which was pretty cool. We were only an hour or so from Bushkill falls so we ventured there one day and went to the country junction afterwards. Overall, we had a great stay. The place is also great for families as it has a playground within walking distance. Thanks again Billy & Mary Jo! Your house is beautiful!
Awesome weekend getaway!
Amazing time at an amazing home. Loved everything about this property will definitely be coming back. I highly recommend this rental. You will not regret it.
We are so happy you love the house as much as we do! We would love to have you come stay at our property again.

Beautiful, fun, relaxing Lake House!
I was very happy with Bill and Mary Jo's lake house. The house and property looked to be a nice size online, but I was surprised how much space we had in person. The house was in perfect, clean condition when we arrived and the living room/kitchen/dining room had a great open floor plan, the outdoor deck was a nice size with an outdoor patio set and a picnic table downstairs in the yard for eating after bbq-ing. The hot tub was the main attraction of our weekend, and the sliding doors walking out to the hot tub in two of the bedrooms was a very convenient feature. The fire pit was our favorite evening activity as well; great for roasting marshmallows! The lake was a nice view and we enjoyed walking around it, but it was too mucky for swimming and a few attempts at fishing proved unsuccessful. The only initial disappointment was the game room; the pool/ping pong table was child sized and the fooseball table could use some fixing. We quickly forgot about that, however, since all of the other amenities made up for it. We did bring our own board games and cards, only to discover they had great options to choose from in the house already also.
We didn't ventured off the property much, but one day we went on a walk through the woods on an adjacent block and found a stream that we hiked around for a few hours. The house was also a quick 20 minute drive to Barley Creek Brew Company-our favorite restaurant near Camelback. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend in the woods; I could see this house appealing to people of all ages. Thanks for a great weekend! When looking to rent again in the future we would love to come back!
We are happy you enjoyed our house. We love sharing it with others so they can enjoy the beauty and serenity of the house and location. We do list on the description that the Pool/Ping pong table is a child size and we will look into the foosball table to see what needs fixing. But we are happy you were able to enjoy the other many amenities of the house. Our favorite is the fire pit, it is a nice time with our family sitting out there roasting marshmallows and telling stories. We would love to have you come back and visit again. The winter months are also beautiful with the snow on the ground and we are only 15-20 minutes away from 4 skiing/tubing locations. Camelback is the one 20 minutes away. So we will be looking forward to hearing from you again soon to come back to our Lakehouse!
Great place to stay in the Pocono's
Mary Jo and Billy have a great place in the Pocono's The week we stayed was very hot even for the Pocono's. However we were very comfortable. My wife especially liked the bird that was nested in the flower bed on the deck and the chip monks that would eat some of the bird seed we provided. Sitting out on the deck on the mornings with our coffee was one of the best parts of our stay. My wife and I have rented through VRBO many many times and we found Mary Jo and Billy's place to be one of the best we have stayed at. . Highly recommended.
