Family Ski Trip to Poconos

  • 5 of 5

My wife, children, and grandchildren (5 boys ages 10 to 15) spent a too short ski trip to the Poconos staying at Elk Lodge. It was perfect for our needs: plenty of room for all to spread out without feeling crowded, good cooking and food prep area, dining room table that comfortably seated all for meals and those for Risk or other board games, comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, a second food area (frig, microwave, etc), several tv's (although we didn't watch much), game room with pool, foosball, ping pong, spacious hot tub, and close to ski slopes and restaurants. The owner was very responsive answering questions via e mail almost immediately. All in all very nice. If we return for future Poconos trips we will certainly try to rent here again.

Excellent service and repeat business

  • 5 of 5

The house is great and in a very desirable location. We were very happy with everything offered and available to us. It has a large game room, several bed rooms, a nice sun room, great deck, two kitchens, and great master bedroom. We had stayed previously with another property in the area, both times they were taken care of by Barry. The services and accommodations he provides are perfect. We did our research prior to both trips and the reviews tell the truth.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

A big house with lots of rooms for privacy and great game room with pool table, air hockey and smart tv. We were happy to find a ping pong table on an enclosed porch on the main floor off the kitchen. It was our first time renting from Barry and we definitely will again. Very professional and courteous owner that responds quickly to phone calls.

Multi family .... adults, kids and dogs! Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi family vacation every year was great thanks to staying in this house. There's plenty of room for everyone to hang out together and also lots of rooms for everyone to have their own space when needed (since there's so many of us). This is our second time renting. Barry is great with getting back to you and checking in. Would definitely recommend and rent again!!

Love this house

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this house several times and have always enjoyed my stay. House is huge, well maintained. We love using the hot tub, pool table and ping pong table and were pleasently suprised to see the addition of a air hockey table.

THIS IS THE HOUSE YOU WANT TO STAY IN

  • 5 of 5

Date of arrival April 17

Cannot wait to get back to this house for our third time. It was perfect for our family group. Plenty of common space, the large game room with new air hockey table and pool table is amazing and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. Beds were comfy and the house is very large so there are separate spaces for everyone to go - family room, game room and main living room to name a few. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and extremely responsive. The Lake Harmony area is also great for those that love the outdoors.
