"First I will start off by saying that the owner is very responsive and helpful and happy to open their home to you. It was a great location to celebrate my big 4-0 and it was just what I was looking for! My husband and I traveled with 2 teenage girls (one mine and the other her friend) and our dog, and they had just as much fun as we did. The house is very clean and well taken care of. The dog loved going for walks and just watching the wooded world go by out the windows and staying on the deck-her nose was going a mile a minute! We loved the big, open windows in the master-it was so nice to wake up to the sunshine and the birds every morning. The girls slept in the bunk beds and enjoyed having their own living space. We enjoyed using the gym facilities at the clubhouse and I definitely recommend getting the temporary membership. The pools and the beaches were beautiful and clean and never too crowded. And having an ice cream stand just down the road became our evening ritual- ice cream cones on the beach! We have friends in Lake Naomi in Timber Trails and it was easy to visit with them, we had never visited the area before and found it accessible and convenient to so many of the Pocono attractions. We also stopped for coffee several mornings at the Mountaintop Lodge (just a side note, the bakery at the Mountaintop Lodge made my birthday cake and it was outstanding!) and had coffee and breakfast on the big porch in the rocking chairs. It was nice to feel like we were in the middle of nowhere. I grew up vacationing on lakes, as did my husband, so this was something new for our family to do. When we vacation we are always on the go with sites to see-it was nice having a few days built in to go to the pool and swim or sit on the beach and read a book. There are restaurants on premises and nearby-with some research-you will not go hungry! If you have younger children, there are tons of things in the home to keep them entertained on a rainy day-games, videos, toys-they really have the younger guests taken care of! It was a lovely stay, thank you for having my family!"
