Comfortable and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 were comfortable and had the best Memorial Day Weekend (despite the rain) at this home. There are plenty of board games, ping pong and fooseball to keep you occupied if you are indoors. The outdoor furniture was up to date and super comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect place for friends and family get togethers

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable nice scenic view of the lake,

The accommodations were great .nice gas fire place that worked and gave us warm heat on the chilli night. The website should be modified where it states linens provided and there is a hidden link that needs to be clicked on to the details for a fee! This should be exposed to see without the hidden link.. Great weekend away Thanks Anne and Jim.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being our guests and leaving our home immaculate. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Anne and I are very sorry about the confusion with the linens. We have been renting for 11 years and never had this issue before. When working with Home and Away we simply click a "yes" or "no" button regarding the linens. We have never included the linens and I am not sure from where the confusion stems. Again thank you, and sorry that this detail was not better reflected on the site content. We welcome your return at anytime as you were wonderful guests. Best regards, Jim and Anne Sykes

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Happy New Year. We arrived Friday of New Years weekend with snow on the ground. Your home is beautiful with all the comforts of being in our own homes.

Was very warm and cozy. Friday night we enjoyed the game room. Had so much fun with ping pong tournaments. Sat we went tubing at Jack Frost and rang in the New year on the lake with a nice fire while watching neighbors fire works. Sunday the weather was absolutely perfect. Sunny and warm. Spent a lot of time on the lake walking, watching people ice fish and playing football. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your home on the lake. Will definitely be repeat renters next year.

Our first experience up the mountains was great.

Had a 3 day golf weekend here with 8 guys. The house was plenty big enough. Very comfortable and immaculate! Has a big screen tv for those who wanted to watch college football games and a great back yard for those who did not. The fire pit was the best part. The basement also included a dart board and other games. I've been staying in the Poconos for years now and this is by far the nicest house I've stayed in. Highly recommend this house and would not stay anywhere else for future golf trips!
