Wonderful time for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time getting together to celebrate my brothers 50th birthday! The house is perfect for two families. It is spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths plus the loft for the kids to hang out. Big boulder is right up the main road. There is a pizza place down the street and a small market for the essentials. We would def return!

House and owners are wonderful, but...

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home, and there was plenty of room for our extended family group of 10. However, the major bummer of our vacation was that the Towamensing Community is extremely rigid, and they limit wristbands/access to ammenities to 8 guests only. We were forced to wear the wristbands at all times (which got extremely warped and annoying to have on after a day or two), and we were stopped by security repeatedly, even if we were out walking or biking through the community. Thankfully, Hickory Run State Park was just down the road - we HIGHLY recommend that! There was a big, beautiful lake, very spacious (and free) beach and swimming area, numerous hiking/walking/biking trails, and a breathtaking boulder field. The park saved our vacation, as we were a bit stifled within the Towamensing Trails community. Overall, the house was spacious and clean, and the owners were very nice to work with, but our family will not be back to rent within that community.

Owner's Response: Sorry, you had a problem with the development security. It must be stated that I have tried several time to be able to acquire additional renters badges but as explained to me that in order to maintain a safe level of people in the community especially during the summer security tries to be make sure all visitors belong in the community. We have had some problem with people from the outside . I will say you are the first renter that has expressed a problem and will take this information to the association. I'm glad you liked the house. Thanks

Very cozy house and quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house was located in a wonderfully relaxing environment. There were deer that visited occasionally, and the neighborhood was serene and situated within a wooded area. We went during the winter time, and the fireplace was such a treat to enjoy. The house itself was very cozy and welcoming. The decorations lended to the overall homey feeling of the house. There was plenty of space to socialize. The kitchen is spacious enough to have around five people cooking at once. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and organized. I absolutely enjoyed my stay here, and thank you so much to Fred who was quite helpful even when I had trouble with the trip. I highly recommend staying here for anybody looking for an amazing house!
