Lovely poconos getaway with wood burning fireplace and amenities for our pup

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend here. Came up for a snowy retreat and enjoyed staying by the fire. The place is tiny and was exactly enough room for us. It was clean, there were plenty of dishes and a nice coffee pot, and extra blankets to stay warm. We appreciated how welcome the dog was (there was a bed, extra dishes and a crate if needed). Paul and Amy were accessible for planning ahead of time to help us coordinate a smooth trip. A total success

wonderful cabin with perks

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and had plenty of paper products available. The beach was nearby for our grandson to swim and build "stuff" in the sand. The cabin was exactly as represented.

Perfect for a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

It was a cozy little house that had everything we needed for a quiet weekend trip for three girls. Quiet neighborhood with lots of deers around the house. All the instructions were clear and accurate too! Thank you!

Well lit

Decent kitchen

Efficient usage of space for not feeling crammed

Well outfitted kitchen

Nice bathroom nice amount of tv's

Comfortable chairs


Takes a bit to warm up the house, inefficient

Mattresses are poor

Too much ice on the porch and untouched driveway

Should be listed as 4 but can fit 5

Would of been nice to at least have full trash bags


Great for a 2 child family. Fit[barely] a 5 party bachelor. But, Overall a very nice experience, just had a few hiccups. Would rent again if few issues were fixed.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew! Thank you for your comments!! We have double checked your reservation and all communications and noted you reserved for four people, in the future if you are adding a guest please inform the host! Regarding the mattresses they are all brand new memory foam, apologies they were not to your preference! We will address the trash bags and ice with our cleaning crew. We have checked all of the thermostats (one in each room) and all appear to be functioning correctly, apologies if you found this not to be the case... we were only a phone call away for questions or assistance! Please do let us know should you have any further comments! Kind Regards, -Paul & Amy
