Trip from Hell
Well where to begin! We were set for a 4 day mini vacation that my wife and I desperately needed. When we got there the outside of the home looked fairly rundown but that didn’t make us entirely apprehensive. When we got inside the first thing we noticed was there wasn’t a lot of furniture. There were dead bug carcasses smashed on the walls, the carpets were dirty and there were holes and screws on the walls in the bathroom where there should’ve been towel racks. We then noticed the linens were dirty and stained some with cigarette burns, there was an open hole into the attic with no way to close it or guarantee there was no wildlife up there. The bathroom had small insects and was clearly dirty. We went downstairs to check the basement and there was cobwebs on the stairs, the distinct smell of mold and mildew, a television sitting on the floor as well as game systems and games, a broken bed/futon and the downstairs bathroom barely had a door. It was at this point we decided we could not sit down nor could we stay there for fear of contracting bed bugs. We called the owner who said to us “I’m at work in South Jersey there’s nothing I can do to help you.” So we got a hotel room half an hour away, sent photos and texts to the property owner. We have dealt with HomeAway customer service though the home owner seems to be content trying to take advantage of renters so that he doesn’t need to refund for these issues. DO NOT RENT HERE. Again it felt like we’d get bed bugs if we’d sat down or stayed more then the few minutes we did before the mold aggravated my wife’s sever mold allergy. I’d give this place 0 stars if I could. I would also gladly provide photographic evidence of all this if the review and app would let me
Great for a Family Weekend or Quiet Getaway!
Stayed for a few days for bonding time before my nephew and his family left to be stationed overseas. Nice quiet area with lots of family activities. Loads of swimming - community has a couple of very nice pools and a lake, and is just a few minutes from Tobyhanna State Park where you can rent kayaks, pedal boats and rowboats at reasonable cost. Kids enjoyed the playroom after dinner and the clubhouse hosted movies as an activity. If it's quiet time you're after, the house itself is off main roads and very serene. Breakfast on the back porch overlooking the wooded yard was very relaxing and deer roam the entire community, one stood in the yard and seemed as fascinated with us as the kids were with it. House was clean when we got there and has the essentials - pots, pans, utensils, plates. Owner is very attentive and responsive - what a great time we had at your house. Thank you!
Very kind host, always a call away. The house had a few little issues like not enough sheets and a small things like that. Overall a fine place
Great place to stay
A great place to enjoy with your family. They made everything easy and enjoyable. Close to everything and the community has everything you need. I would definitely use them again. My new vacation spot.
The Great Escape
This place felt like a home away from home. It was a wonderful escape full of fresh air and wilderness. Wild deer literally walk all over the exclusive neighborhood, as well as the backyard. My kids absolutely loved the game room downstairs!!!! There were tons of stuff to keep the kids busy all day. If you need a break from the normal life, this is the great escape!
