In colder moths, sit in the hot tub sipping cocoa while the snow falls, snuggle up in front of the gas fireplace or make smores around the large firepit in the backyard. Hike the dirt roads behind the property or bike along the historic Towpath Road. Many outdoor adventures are a short drive away. Well mannered pets are welcome.

The kitchen is large and open to the great room, with enough amenities to cook and serve a holiday feast. There is a spacious game room on the second floor. Complete with a pool table, 52 inch TV, board games and comfortable couches. There is another TV located on the first floor, so everyone can watch what they like.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Michael,

I wanted to send you a short note to thank you and your wife for allowing us to spend a great holiday weekend in your home. We had great weather, plenty of food, fun, and beverage. The home and property were exactly what we hoping to find , spacious, quiet, and private. Needless to say, we all enjoyed our stay tremendously. Thank you both again... maybe we can do it again next year ?

Beautiful property, very kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for the weekend and had a great time. The house was very kid friendly which was perfect for my 2 year old (baby gates on stairs, game room, large yard, etc.) lots to do in the area and owner was very receptive to questions and available to deal with any problems. We will definitely be back next year!

Relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

We are from Florida and needed a last minute place to stay to escape from Hurricane Irma. We have a 20 month old little girl, a dog, grandma, my husband and myself. Mike went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and was super nice and responded quickly to email and text messages while he was out of town for work, that said a lot about him. He was truly concerned we were comfortable. The house had plenty of room for my toddler to play and run around with our dog. There was a baby hate at the top of the stairs that gave me peace of mind while my hisband and I shot a game of pool and played foosball.

The house was well kept and clean, we mever felt we were in top of each other and there was 3 beds we didn't even use. The house is big and open and had huge outdoor space. We grilled and made a firepitt one night while our toddler played on the swing and slide area. During our stay we saw deers while taking a little hike ( just behind the house there's a trail) there were other neighbors hiking and they were very nice people, we even got invited to a birthday party! We couldn't go as we were leaving that day.

Beds were comfortable, there was Wi-Fi, washer dryer and all appliances worked great. There were 2 huge tv's and the couches were comfortable.

We didn't get to use the hot tub but it was clean and ready to go. We loved the screened in area just next to it. There is a riverboat across the road from the house. We enjoyed drinking our coffee from the front of the house and looking out at the river. If you walk just 2 minutes across the road There's a small set up so you can relax or fish from the river.

We bought some groceries, but other than that pots and spices were all there.

We really loved the home because it was private, safe, and clean. Note that your 15 minutes, maybe more form stores and restaurants. Be sure to check the little towns near by, the have cute little shops! Drivimg around didn't bother us one bit as we enjoyed the ride and change of scenery.

We googled farms, waterfalls, and restaurants in the area and were able to do so much. Be sure to do your research while at the house as you may lose signal once out, and just put you destination on you car navigation system.

Also, if you have a Netflix account you may log in and watch movies and play nemo all day like we did :)

Thank you Mike

Not happy

  • 2 of 5

It's a beautiful property but some of the amenities advertised for the house were not there or did not work. The hot tub never got hot, pots were dirty when we arrived and bed sets were stained, play house needs maintenance, and more.

Owner's Response: The vast majority of guests since 2010 have been delighted. Nevertheless, sometimes things do go wrong and we appreciate constructive criticism. Unfortunately, that was not the case hear since most of these comments appear to have been left because of a disagreement regarding this guests failure to follow the house rules. To be clear, the house is professionally cleaned (including linens and kitchen utensils) after each visit. In addition, the hot tub was functioning normally during this guest's stay, but apparently they had difficulty figuring out the controls. We agree, however, that the swing set is beginning to show its age and hope to have a new set installed in the Autumn of 2017. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. Mike & Geraldine

Beautiful home with a awesome view and so many things on property to offer!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this property!! So much to do around the property and on the property! We have stayed in the Pocono mountains 3 times now and this was by far the best house we've rented! We loved the privacy of the house and the huge yard for the 4 kids and our dogs to play in! The owner was so flexible with us in regards to bringing our dogs and they had a blast as well! We went tubing on the river and saw 3 eagles, one of them was fishing right in front of us :) beautiful! Awesome that the owner provided tubes, that was so helpful! We had a blast making s'mores around the fire pit and relaxing in the hot tub after the kids went to bed :). We also went to Lake Wallenpaupack public beach, claws n paws, Bushkill falls, and Camelbeach waterpark--all within reasonable distance from the house! The guys went fishing and caught a bass :). The house was huge and perfect for a large family like ours! Owner was always quick to respond if needed :)! Clean and well cared for property! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!
