amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home that made our vacation in Pennsylvania really wonderful. The house is spacious and comfortable and the pool is clean and refreshing as well. Mr. Wicklow always made sure everything ran smoothly. Aside from the fact that we were not allowed to keep lights on unless we were currently in that room, we had freedom to do what we wanted in the house. We would definitely recommend this stay for a nice family vacation.

Gorgeous home! Perfect escape!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for a 4 day getaway for four families. The house is beautiful - it's stately yet warm! The bedrooms are large and the beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen/family room space is perfect for hanging out. You don't need to bring anything - the house is FULLY furnished (except for a few things like curtains, bathroom garbage cans, TP holders).

The house is located in an upscale, quiet neighborhood, but there are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby if you want to go out. Plenty to do in the house - the kids spend their time swimming, playing croquet, and running around in the open, unfurnished basement.

The owner came by every morning and evening to test the pool and check in on us. He genuinely wants to make sure you have a great time. I recommend this property!

Absolutely gorgeous estate

  • 5 of 5

We came together for a summer family get together in this gorgeous home! The house was very spacious, beautifully appointed in Restoration Hardware style ... great for our entire family including the children too. Mike, the owner, was very helpful, attentive and met all of our needs. Our time couldn't have been any more enjoyable -- whether playing games on the lawn, cooling off in the pool or curling up in the sumptous family room to watch movies and play games! Everyone raved about what a fabulous time we all had! Quiet, beautiful upscale neighborhood - tucked away, yet close to everything! Thank you Mike for making our family get together So special! I can't say enough .... Holly B. and family

Simply, the Best!

  • 5 of 5

No words to describe this place. It was the perfect getaway house for my group. Very spacious, it accomodated us all and there was still a full basement level with room. The house was furnished beautifully - bathrooms, kitchen and entertainment space all had amenities one could want in a vacation home. And the location was perfect too. Nice, quiet secluded neighborhood.

Mike the Owner was very helpful and made sure our needs were met. He even allowed a later check out time.

This is truly a great place and the pictures here, nor my words above do it justice. I felt like a King staying here. Better yet, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air!

Villanova Naval Commissioning/Graduation 2012

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our son's Naval commissioning and graduation with our families. What a spectacular property and accommodating owner, it does not get any better than this. We have been using VRBO for family vacations for nearly 15 years and this property has to be the best we have experienced. The pictures do not do it justice as they are not enough to get a feel for this well-appointed home (recently professionally decorated with brand new furniture). You will not be disappointed!

Fabulous Home - Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from a 5-day stay at this french-style mansion...and yes, it is a mansion. My guests and I were thrilled by the grand home, manicured grounds, lovely pool with spa and the location. I rented the home for my husband's surprise retirement party and invited our daughters, sisters and their children. We all fit comfortably with room to spare. Our champagne toast was in the lovely side garden and dinner was under the trees overlooking the pool and the grandly lit home. We all felt like we were in a fairy tale. Mike, the owner, was great. He checked on us every day to be sure all was well. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return for another week.
