About Joe - Please send an email - I will get back quickly.

I am a New York professional working in the banking industry and living in the suburbs. I built a beautiful home in a community which I love. Unfortunately, I am often too busy to enjoy this little piece of heaven. So, I share it. It is for rent.

Why Joe - Please send an email - I will get back quickly. chose Delaware River Valley

We built this house to enjoy family vacations in one of the best kept secrets in the PA vacation region. This house is new and located on an elevated building lot. Views of the surrounding mountains and nearby wooded property are available from the front and back upper decks.

These decks are on the second floor with BBQ and other facilities. Most of all, the deer visit daily. They love Cheerios.

What makes this chalet unique

This community is the best in the region. Renting this house entitles you to pools, beaches, riverfront, horseback riding, outdoor sports, play grounds, gym and restaurants. All included with the price.

During the winter, the community becomes a ski resort. It is the third highest vertical drop in the Poconos. Ski School, ski rental, etc. It is all here. Woodloch Pines and the other communities all send their skiiers to our resort. If you stay local, you will have convenience which is not available elsewhere.

Also, renters in this home receive a 25% discount at the ski resort.

All of the other facilities such as the pool and beach are free. Others like horseback riding have nominal fees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us."

"We spent most of the weekend indoors and enjoyed the large open space."

"Cooking for all of these people was not an issue at all. We loved the experience."

"The beds were comfortable and it is so quiet at night. I got such a wonderful sleep."

"The views from the windows and the wrap around deck are really inspiring. Thank you for making my weekend such a pleasure."

"We will be back!"

Classy Pocono Retreat

  • 5 of 5

After some "campy" experiences in vacation home rentals, we finally found one that was everything we were looking for. From the sunny dining area to the warm, gas fireplace living room with sitting area, we found this the ideal contemporary home to unwind in. Its modern amenities and spacious, scenic layout made this experience wonderful for our family. Nestled just minutes away from the ski area, we found this to be just the right fit.

The bedrooms were perfectly sized and the kitchen was perfect for preparing a family meal. We just love the idea of a clean, modern vacation home located so close to skiing!! We look forward to our next stay with you.

Fantastic Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a winter weekend getaway that is in walking distance to the tubing and ski slopes, this is it!

We planned for a quiet winter getaway with family and that's exactly what we received. Besides being a very nice guy, Joe was very responsive and available, contacting us via email and phone whenever we had a question or concern.

The house is brand new and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies - glasses, bowls, utensils, some pots/pans, full spice cabinet and a refrigerator with an ice maker. There is also a huge kitchen table with seating for 10+. The large family room was a focal point as we all had plenty of room to sit around the gas fireplace and watch television. Each of the 4 bedrooms was very neat and clean, with comfortable mattresses. The loft area was the perfect space for the kids to sleep - futon bed and plenty of floor space.

The basement had another set of comfortable couches with a game room area, including foosball and a ping pong table. The large TV in the basement was perfect for our Wii video game.

The skiing area is within walking distance or a 30 second car ride. You will receive a 25% discount on all ski and rental tickets as a resident. The lodge was clean and has a very nice restaurant. We all went tubing and it was a blast! The ski resort is sized perfectly for a weekend getaway. There is horseback riding nearby but we did not get a chance to visit.

Every morning and night you will receive a visit from a group of resident deer looking for cheerios and bread - the kids got such a kick out of this, feeding them from the deck.

I would recommend this house to anyone and will definitely return!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a wonderful time. We love this community! Masthope Mountain Community and Ski Big Bear offer great recreation in both the winter and summer. Our family would spend every free day in this vacation resort destination but life's commitments get in the way. So, we do the next best thing...we rent it to others. Your great experience makes us happy. Thank you and please come back. Joe

Resort like accommodations with real homey feel.

  • 5 of 5

We didn't know about taking a vacation mid-week trip during the off-season... who goes to the poconos without skiing or lakefront activities? The house we rented in the heart of Mast Hope community was wonderful. It was large, well it nestled on a mountain face. It was nicely appointed and neat as a pin with the smell of fresh carpet still in the air. Upon arriving, we took advantage of the horseback riding amenities available in the community. We also took advantage of natures own beauty of seasonal colors. Upon returning to the home, we enjoyed sitting in front of the gas fireplace! This is not your typical rental home - it felt more like an exclusive resort.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to have you as our guest. This home and community are an undiscovered treasure just 90 miles from Manhattan. We are a four season community with a family friendly focus. Pools, beaches, horseback riding, gym, tennis, etc are all free or of nominal cost. Of course, it is wonderful to reside in a large ski resort during the winter. Discounted lift tickets for all renters. The word is out so we expect many more happy memories. Thank you for staying with us at our Beautiful Home.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented the house for a Ski Weekend. Luckily the weather held out and skiing was available this weekend. We had a great weekend. The house was just as it was stated in the details on Home Away. Would definitely look to return again next winter if not before.

Large Amazing Beautiful Home - Awesome Community

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for Christmas. We loved the experience. We have never staying in such a nice vacation property although we have rented houses previously.

The house offers large open spaces with lots of sunlight. We sat in front of the fireplace and out on the 2nd floor deck. Deer visited us every day so we tossed breakfast cereal to them. The house has plenty of beds and space. It is comfortable with everything needed.

We celebrated Christmas but this was not a good year for skiing. The ski resort was closed so we were a little bored. This has been the warmest winter ever!

We caused a little trouble I am afraid. My brothers caused damage to the sheetrock while horsing around in the game room. We also knocked over wine and candles in the living room so the rug needed cleaning. If that is not enough, a bat flew into the house. The owner arranged for a professional to remove it but we chased it out before he arrived.

Wow, this owner was very helpful! He understood our problems and tried to help.

I would definitely recommend this home and owner.

It is perfectly reasonable for the owner not to guarantee ski conditions or road conditions. I appreciate all of his help and regret that we caused his house some problems.

We will see you next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you for appreciating our vacation home. It is beautiful and offers everything needed for a full vacation. It is unfortunate that the ski resort was closed due to warm weather. We do appreciate your understanding. Some guests have demanded their money back because of the lack of skiing. That is very unfair since we clearly indicate that this is not our responsibility. We cannot refund anyone's money if we are not able to "re-rent" the dates. Thank you for making the best of your visit. Not everyone is as appreciative. Owner

Location and size of the house are nice. Kitchen is not well stocked and the house is very worn. The carpet is stained and there were holes in the walls. The owner was very friendly prior to our arrival but unavailable since then. Still working on getting security deposit back. Would not recommend

Owner's Response: Dear "Disappointed Guest", We had multiple conversations. I am aware that the guests just prior to your visit caused a hole in the wall and stains on the carpet. As I explained, these things cannot be corrected during the 5 hour turnaround between guests. Since your visit, these issues have been addressed by our handyman. In addition, we also discussed the true source of your dissatisfaction...no snow. Yes, it has been a warm winter which resulted in disappointing ski conditions. However, I am not responsible for ski or road conditions. You cannot get a refund if the ski resort is closed. One more thing. You gave the house a "1" star. This is very unfair as we discussed. It is unfortunate that the rating system is a simple average of all ratings. Frankly, a more sophisticated system would discard outlying ratings. I hope that all future guests will consider the many "5" star reviews. This guests review does not represent our many satisfied visitors. Owner

This house is located in a beautiful private community. The house is new and most of the community facilities are also. During the winter, it is a public ski resort. During the summer, it is a private vacation playground. Pools, beaches, outdoor sports, horseback riding, hiking, a gym, 4 restaurants and other facilities are located in the private community. Nearby are antique shops, small lovely towns and 2 rivers. The more well known is the Delaware. It is beautiful because the federal government strictly controls development.

The Delaware is full of fish and fun. Several companies nearby rent canoes and other watercraft. Fish are abundant and so are other wildlife.

There is a small waterpark nearby and other amusements.

The resort community Woodloch Pines is also nearby so guests may easily visit their facilities.

Other Activities: resort facilities are new and beautiful

Golf: Excellent golf courses nearby. These include Woodloch Pines Resort. Just 10 minutes away from the house.

Ski: Public ski resort. Never crowded. Plenty of lifts. Lines are no more than 5 minutes.

Family friendly ski resort. Excellent ski school. Beginner trails available. Great for kids.

Advanced trails also. Ski shop and rental shop are awesome.

Ski lift is 3 blocks from the house! You can walk or drive.

Restaurants are great as well.
