About Bud and Kay Macnew
I was born in Tokyo Japan. I met my husband when I was studying in Germany at the same university.
Bud and Kay Macnew purchased this House in 1994
Why Bud and Kay Macnew chose East Stroudsburg
My husband used to come here for golfing since he was attending Fordham University in NY. Our favor vacation place has been always Poconos. Finally we decided to build one instead of renting. That how we got this beautiful comfortable house here in Shawnee.
What makes this House unique
Most of guests enjoyed that we have 2 living rooms( one we call a family room or den), as their children could watch own TV shows although each bed room has a TV or playing games etc.. while the adults enjoyed chatting with family or friends or watch their own show. Also, they liked the idea of having 2 bed rooms and a full bath on the 1st floor as some times they had older people who do not like stairs. Also the guests like to have a TV in each room. Wd have total of 7 TVs in the house.

Met all our expectations
Great location, we walked to slopes. This house was perfect for our group of nine. Comfortable, roomy, had everything we needed i.e. kitchen items, very clean as well. In spite of rain we had fun staying in front of fire, playing board games, some took advantage of jacuzzi tub. Owners kept in touch which we appreciated. Short stay so did not get to take advantage of Shawnee Inn discounts.
Thanks for staying. We are so glad that you enjoyed your vacation at our house. You are very responsible and well prepared guests.
We appreciate your thoughtfulness and good manner.
Looking forward to hearing from you again.
Bud and Kay
A great weekend stay, thanks Kay!
As always, Kay & Bud's home near Shawnee Mountain gave our family the perfect place to stay for a fun filled weekend ski trip. We have rented this home numerous times over the past 15 years or so and we keep coming back! Aside from the rain (which no one can help) we had a blast. We still were able to spend hours on the slopes and look forward to staying here again!
A great family ski vacation home
The home is a minute away from Shawnee Ski Mountain which has an excellent ski school program. Skiing is available for beginners to experts. The home provides a card for considerable saving at the mountain. The home has an open floor plan with kitchen, dining and rec room with a beautiful fireplace. There was plenty of space for our three generations to enjoy, bedrooms are plenty. The many towels are plush. Dishes, glasses and silverware are more than adequate. The jacuzzi, new kitchen appliances, numerous tv’s and deck overlooking the woods make for a wonderful stay. The home is minutes from food and clothing shopping, restaurants of all type, tourist attractions, historical sites and churches. The owner responded to my one call within minutes. I would (and have) recommend this home to anyone. You have to try the Minisink Hotel, food is delicious and the atmosphere is friendly.
Thank you for coming back for so many years.
You have been wonderful guests.
my cleaning girls love to clean the house after you leave as the house has been always so neat.
By the way, thanks for the next year's booking
I will mark off the calender.
See you next year !
We had a very good time in the house. Home owners Kay and Budd are very good and responsive. The house is very specious and equipped with all amenities. I would only recommend and upgrade in the kitchen counter and some equipments in the kitchen and require carpet wash in the ground floor.
It is walking distance to Ski area and 5-10 mins drive to restaurants and super market.
I would definitely make my summer vacation home.
Cozy Home! Perfect layout for our family.
Great location. Convenient to our favorite pocono activities like the Village Farmer & Bakery, the Deerhead Inn & Bushkill Falls. There were 10 of us but the house could easily accommodate more. Kitchen well appointed to prepare meals and snacks. Home owners were easily accessible if we had needed anything. My 6 year old grandson said that the house is even nicer in person than in pictures!
Outdated house and communication with owners not great
My family and 2 other families stayed here about a month ago. No foosball table (description states there is), grill didn't work well at all, took over an hour to cook burgers, jacuzzi tub didn't work and weren't told ahead, shower curtain rod in upstairs bathroom is broken, downstairs shower door doesn't shut all the way, window shutters in bedrooms are broken. Should update the description of the house to include there is a Keurig machine. We think the owners should visit their house for a weekend and take a look at its condition and make some repairs/updates to make the house a better offer.
Thank you for staying at our vacation house.
Other Activities: Downhill/Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, Tubing, Wildlife Viewing, Basketball Court, Miniature golf, shopping, and kayaking
