Great house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a multi family ski weekend. We had a wonderful time. The layout of the house was wonderful for us. A large ,well stocked, kitchen and kitchen table so we could all eat together. The kids loved the basement and the parents enjoyed playing their own music upstairs in the living room off of the kitchen. All the bedrooms are very comfortable and the house is very clean. It was an easy walk to the slope and a few drove ( 3 mins.)to the top of the mountain to start skiing there. The owners were very helpful answering all of our questions and always in a very timely fashion. Thank you for making our first trip to Wisp a great one. We hope to be back.

Best Views of the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was a most excellent location for our family Thanksgiving getaway. Judy and Tom, the owners, were great to work with and unbelievably supportive, answering any and all questions nearly in real-time via text. The house is perfectly sited on top of the mountain with a completely unobstructed view down to the lake with a huge rear deck and rear glass walls to take it all in. The kitchen was completely furnished with every possible dish and gadget imaginable, so all the things we brought to prepare our Thanksgiving meal just stayed in the car. The house is very comfortable with a wood burning fireplace upstairs which is great for adult conversation, a full game room down stairs with a nice flat screen for movies and a gas fireplace and deck to the hot tub, lots of bathrooms, and a most attractive floor plan. And, it really is a ski-in, ski-out location. We'll definitely enjoy returning to this location. The property, the owners, and the location really made our Thanksgiving retreat special.

This property is lovely and the view is wonderful.. but it is NOT wheelchair accessible! We spoke with the owner several times and she was adamant that it was. I can send you photos. First, to get IN to the property you have to go up two stone stairs. There is NO ramp. Thank GOD we had two wheelchairs for mom, because if we had only had her standard wheelchair and not her smaller one we would NOT have been able to get her up the steps and in the door (thank God, once again, that she only weighs 120 pounds). If you are wheelchair-bound, you can not get in and out of a bathroom without having the bathroom door open... and there are no railings or anything else to make the bathroom accessible and there is no way to shower or bathe unless you can get OUT of your wheelchair and step over the edge of a tub. We rented for family vacation with my mother, who is completely wheelchair bound. I checked with the owner and was assured that it was accessible. When I called with my concerns she assured me that she had just had renters in with several wheelchairs. If you are looking for handicap accessibility. Keep looking. do NOT rent this place. OH. And I made the mistake of having asked for photos of the 'handicap accessible' bathroom but she never sent to me. I do not wonder why. It doesn't exist. I'm, quite frankly, appalled that she still has it listed here as accessible. I thought for sure she might have had the sense to have taken it down by now after our experience. The ADA would be DISMAYED at this. Did I mention that the doors aren't even the handicap doors? They aren't WIDE enough for a wheelchair. At 81 years old, my darling dad somehow made things work... and my mom is an amazing trooper.. b/c it was crystal clear the owner had ZERO intent of allowing us to opt out after arriving since she had LIED and DECEIVED us. Yes, we could have gotten a lawyer involved and I do have photos.... but I didn't want to sabotage our time together as a family. Did I mention... do not rent?????!!!!

This rental was the perfect place to stay with the convenience of slope access and the coziness of the house after a cold day out. We really enjoyed coming in for the night with such a great kitchen to cook in and the great room with fire to relax. The views were breathtaking and the kids really enjoyed the spacious basement with pool table in the evenings. Not to mention a hot tub that helped our sore muscles! This house was enjoyed by all...highly recommend it! (Good tip: if you need rentals, head to the top of the mountain for a less crowded experience at the rental spot there )

Thank you again so much!

Must See

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was elegant. The view was breath taking. This home offers plenty of space and yet very cozy. We had a group of ten, who just enjoyed hanging out on the deck. Traveling from Philadelphia was worth the drive. The description regarding the property are accurate, its more beautiful in person.

The owners of this property were very accommodating and pleasant to work with. I look forward to returning to this magnificant property, it was truly wonderful.
