Dark and sort of creepy
Let's start with the positives. The location of this cabin is great. You can walk along a busy road to get to Split Rock and it is under a mile. Jackie, the contact person, is prompt in response and lovely, but she's not the owner and simply cleans the cabin. You have no access to the owner. Okay, now the negatives. The house could be awesome, but it is so dark and poorly kept that it comes off as creepy. Some examples: there were stains on the linens that looked like blood, there's a significant hole in the window in the main bathroom near the lock (large enough for someone to put their hand through and unlock the window and climb in), everything outside is filthy and overgrown, so there really is no option for sitting, as the chairs are disgusting. Disgusting, as in accumulated dirt and grime from years of neglect. You would not be able to wipe things clean- it would be a project. I don't know who would possibly use that grill. And you do not have access to Split Rock resort- there is no membership- that is an outright lie. You have to pay to swim and use the courts. $20 for an hour of tennis. Honestly, with the hole in the window and the lack of lighting, I did not feel safe. I did not sleep two out of the three nights and it was sheer exhaustion that allowed for the third night of sleep. The fact that they said it was a well stocked kitchen is a complete misrepresentation. I didn't want to use what little was provided. Also, the majority is stored so high that you need a step ladder to reach, but I'm short, so I still couldn't reach with the provided step ladder. It indicates that you have no access to the basement, which is true as it is nailed shut. That added to the creep factor. I kept wondering if there were bodies down there. I took pictures of the stains, the broken window, the filth and level of light, but there is no place for me to upload photos. The only reason why I didn't give this a one is because there is such potential with this property and Jackie was great. We had a nice time in the area, but I would dread coming back to the cabin in the evening. If you decide to rent, definitely bring linens and towels. The towels are old, small and very thin. I would have definitely brought all of my own linens had I known I would be sleeping on stained sheets and using old towels. Overall, I was very disappointed.
It was a great cabin for our stay for the Pocono race. Loved the uniqueness inside. Close to everything you need and to the lake. It was very convenient in getting to the raceway. Very large inside. Would highly recommend it.
Easter Family Vaca
This cabin was just what we needed for our family getaway! Peaceful, tranquil and rustic. It does not disappoint! Very clean and everything that you needed from bathing to cooking was provided. The kids enjoyed hiking in the backyard and the H2O waterpark. We made lasting memories and plan to book again in the future.

Great quiet cozy cabin
My girlfriend and I needed a reprieve from the madness of Manhattan, so we found this cabin in the woods listing and it was exactly what we were looking for.
The home was very easy to navigate to and placed in a central location accesible to major shopping centers which were roughly 20-30 minutes away, however there is one market that is about 5 minutes away for any grocery needs.
When we arrived the house was super cozy and really had that cabin in the woods feel. The home was clean and it was easy to get comfortable and relax right away. The home can easily sleep 8-10 guests, but it was just the two of us with out little pup.
It also has a back to the 80's/90's feel. The fire place is great :)
Theres probably more things to do in the area during Spring or Summer but for us it was the perfect peaceful winter place. At night its very dark outside, but hey its the woods.
Overall the trip was super relaxing and we would go back again, we definitely recommend it.
