Cozy, comfortable & the pups loved it.

  • 5 of 5

What brought me to this home at first was the fenced in yard. As a dog loving family it makes all the difference. I guess i expected the property to show its wear and tear as most dog friendly properties do but i was pleasantly surprised by the nice condition of this home. Any of you with small children can also appreciate a fenced yard. This home is a winner.

Cozy home but yet an inconvience, unprepared home.

  • 2 of 5

It was super cozy , great space & very quiet to relax ! But i must say that the 100 extra dollars for parking & “cleaning” fee are questionable. Why? They wanted us out by 12 yet we have to wash the towels & sheets that they provided & it’s a small washing machine so we had to wake up extra early to get all the beds and towels done. Oh and we also have to buy our own detergent! That alone is an extra 20 we have to include just for the sheets and towels when normally when we travel anywhere there is hand soap but not this place we had to bring our own, so basically just be prepared !!! Our king bed had four pillows, two of them missing pillow cases & no sheets on the bed , smelled like dog pee & their was only a couple of toilet paper so we had to buy some as well.

Owner's Response: This guest did not prepare for their trip by reading the very detailed rental documents that we send with every reservation. Everything that the guest had issues with was clearly explained in the check in/ check out document that we provide prior to arriving to the home. We are also readily available with any questions or concerns during the entire rental process which the guest did not choose to do until one hour before check out. The cleaning fee covers the full cleaning of the home (disinfection of kitchen, baths, vacuuming and moppping of floors as well as dusting and cleaning of the windows.) We provide linens and towel for our guests to use at no charge but we do ask that they laundered before check out, We also offer a linen service for a fee of $50 in which we provide the linens and take care of laundering them. (Typical fee for renting of linens in the Poconos is $100) or guests can choose to bring their own. This is all explained in the rental document. We provide a starter roll of toilet paper for each bathroom as well as a roll of paper towels. We supply trash bags, dish soap, dishwasher tabs, sponges, coffee filters, wood for the fireplace, and basic spices. The guest was incorrect in stating the king bed was missing pillow shams and smelled of dog urine. I personally washed all the comforters prior to their stay. This review is an example of of a guest who was not prepared for their stay because they did not read the information that was supplied to them. They also failed to mention that I generously offered for them to stay at the home after the noon check out because of their misunderstanding. We take pride in our homes and our customer service which is reflected in our numerous 4 and 5 star reviews.

Not bad but could be better

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the house and that we could bring our dog. She loved the fenced in yard and the kids loved looking at deer in the mornings. Our negatives, were that no one seem to check the property before we arrived. The heat was on but the water heater was not plus the cable and WiFi was not working. We had to coordinate with our host Amy to get all going on Saturday. It was just a little too much work for a two night stay.

Owner's Response: We check each of our homes before check in and are readily available since we live in the same community that the rentals are located. As I explained to the guest, we had to replace the water heater right before she checked iin because the current one stopped working. It was a timely repair and I texted her to double check that the breaker was turned back on in the event the repairman forgot to do so. As far as the WiFi and internet not working, that was an issue with the cable company at the time and was totally out of our control. The service went down the Friday evening that she checked in. As soon as the guest texted me early Saturday morning I coordinated repair at her convenience. We take pride in the quality of our homes as well as our customer service. Our many 4 and 5 star reviews on our 5 total properties speak for themselves.

Pocono Cabin Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place with the decorative accents felt more like someone let us use their house than as a rental. Everyday was a show with the deer. It was just perfect for bringing the dog. Secure yard, we closed the deck gate when we wanted him close. Found a gem of a restaurant in Terra Cottage, took the dog to our breakfasts. Looking forward to next year. Many local activities. Much Fun.
