House is as advertised and Janet was just a phone call away, if we needed anything. We had a great time and would go back. Maybe in the Summer next time, so we can enjoy the Lake.

Last minute Getaway
What to say... from the host to the accommodations to the area... Incredible!
We decided, 4 adults / 2 children, on a Monday that we needed to get away to recharge the batteries before kids started various camps. We searched VRBO and found Janet's house. After a couple of emails we were scheduled for a mid week getaway to begin that Wed.
When we arrived the house was exactly as pictured; warm, comfortable and clean. Great views from all windows and incredible breeze from the lake. We were able to see a lot of wildlife from the deck and screened in porch; many deer, fish jumping in the lake, turkeys and even a black bear came walking by! The kitchen was well stocked and the game room was a great place for the children to hang. Definitely recommend using the kayaks to cruise around the lake especially if a novice or child.
The swimming lake is nearby, about a 15 minute walk. Bring an apple as there are plenty of deer that will accept your offering from your hand. A small area is roped off for you to swim, great for children. Our pre-teen boys loved this area the most as it was shallow, not crowded and an abundance of fish abound at their feet. We spent an entire day of our short trip here. There are two community pools within a five minute drive with a small snack stand and recreation courts. We drove over but the kids wanted to go back to the swimming lake.
Note, there are a number of steps to get to the house. In addition the walk down to the lake and kayaks is very steep. It was not a problem for us or the boys but something to keep in mind.
Overall a GREAT experience for these mountain novices, highly recommended. Janet is a great person to work with and she takes great pride in her home and guests! Janet even left a bottle of wine and hand written note to enjoy during our stay.
very warm and cozy - very nice
If you don't mind the walk up and down the steps, this is the ideal place for a quiet stay. Security is very good and the neighbors are very friendly.
Very cozy , well maintained
Place was very nice, bed were very comfortable. 1 thing that possibly should be mentioned is that there are about 20 steps down to the front door, could be to much if there was a older couple or small children or possibly someone disabled. Definitely would stay again.
Warm Cozy retreat
Had a great family long-weekend at Tucked Away! Owner Janet was very accessible (though we didn't need her - everything was great). The kids (9, 12, 14) had a great time playing Pool, Darts, and Foosball while we enjoyed a fire on a cool damp fall weekend. Plenty of relaxing space to enjoy games on the screened porch, reading, and watching movies (MANY there to choose from!). Contrary to other reviews, we found the kitchen well-stocked. We saw lots of wildlife close by - LOTS of deer, flocks of turkeys, and a black bear on the other side of the lake (cool!) We took advantage of being close to Camelback's High Ropes Adventure and Mountain Coaster, The Crossings Premium Outlets, and horseback riding at Mountain Creek Riding Stables - all excellent and very close by! We highly recommend this property and would return in any season!
Thank you for your review and for choosing Tucked Away. We appreciate your positive feedback. I'm happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay and I'm looking forward to having you again as a guest in our home.
Nice and comfy house in the trees
We had a very good (and quick!) stay at Janet's cottage. We liked the basement pool/darts entertainments, as well as the double deck (one with a screen, one with a BBQ) to enjoy the fall outside.
Alain, Thank you so much for your visit and the wonderful review! hope you and your friends consider "Tucked Away" again, while visiting the Pocono Mountains. Thank you for choosing Tucked Away!!
