Masthope Resort Community
House was in a wonderful Location. Owner was very helpful and easy to communicate with. Enjoyed walking up to the lodge in the mornings. Bedrooms and baths were spotless. The house was in good condition and had everything you would need to cook. They have a wonderful Sound system in the house. Beds could be improved. Deck area could use a bit of sprucing up. Plenty of wildlife to observe. Enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful Time !!
First and foremost, communication with the owner was great. Things started out with a wrong key code and broken air conditioning, however, Glenn was easily reachable. In fact, he gave us the code within minutes and the AC repairman was there within the hour and all was well. The house accommodated us easily which is difficult as we traveled with a five year old, 8 month old triplet boys, a babysitter and her friend. and two spry senior citizens. We found the first floor worked really well for the triplets and were able to put them in their wheeled walkers and let them loose without worrying about them falling down stairs like at home. The house was well furnished and comfortable, plus close to the lodge/pool/main office which was a time saver. As for Masthope (the community) we loved it so much, we found a house and were under contract before we left. It offers so much for a family, pool, mini-golf, tennis courts, handball courts, a lake (swimming, boating, jet skiing), hiking trails, access to the Delaware River, horseback riding, and of course skiing at Big Bear which we look forward to this winter. Glenn's house and the Masthope Community are the perfect combination for a family vacation.
Great property in summer lake/winter ski community. Tons of amenities to enjoy including Community pool, beach lake, boats, mini-golf, bocci, shuffleboard, bocci, horseshoes, corn hole, and horse stables (lessons and rides for a fee). Would definitely rent this house again.
A great vacation in a "fine" home
All 4 adults staying in this rental agreed that if we could've given the home 3.5 stars, then we would have. 3 seems a little low, but it's no 4. First off, the community is great-just look it up to see all the amenities. Lots to do and places to go. The home worked fine for our 2 families, it just left some things to be desired. For starters, the whole home seemed to need a thorough deep cleaning. It seemed to be spot cleaned, just hadn't had a really good clean in quite a long time. Additionally, it needed some simple maintenance throughout the home. For example, the sheets and bedding were clean, but the beds squeaked really, really badly. To the point where our light sleepers had trouble sleeping. A wrench would probably fix this, but there were none to be found in the home. I think this was in 3 of the 4 bedrooms. Also, bathroom hardware kept falling out of the walls, like they'd not been anchored in correctly. This was both upstairs and down. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, but we found several dishes that needed to be rewashed before use. There were about 20 squares of toilet paper in one of the two bathrooms-that was it. The soap (including dish juice) was watered down to the point of ineffective. All this seemed kind of cheap considering that we were spending over $300/night. Finally, we chose this rental instead of the many others because we were traveling with several teenagers and saw the basement games and knew they'd love those, especially if it rained. However, upon arrival we realized that the photos were outdated. There was no foosball table or air hockey table. This was pretty disappointing since there were many rental options. There was a pool table, ping pong table, and dart board, however, there were no ping pong balls and every single dart was broken. Rendering both useless. In conclusion, this house was OK. Really, it was the accumulation of many small things that led to us not loving this particular rental. We do feel like most of these things could be easily remedied with some adequate attention. The owner was quick to communicate-a huge plus.
We appreciate your feedback. I am sorry you did not love our home. We will try to fix the items you listed as best we can.
Ski Big Bear Weekend
Had a great time this weekend at this house close proximity to the mountain and very well equipped. Homeowner Glenn was a pleasure to work with. Loved the great room and the and one of the few houses I found with an actual wood burning fireplace which was nice.
Spent a week with eight people (three generations). Lots of room and all the amenities needed for a perfect stay. Very close to the ski area. The house has a great layout for outdoor activities as you can take off and store gear in the walkout basement and not track anything into the house. Glenn was a welcoming host and very responsive to questions. Will definitely be back.
The house is located in the community of Masthope which has numerous amenities including ski big bear, lake, heated swimming pool, horseback riding, hiking, fitness center, lodge, baseball field, bocce court, tennis, basketball and volleyball
