This is a very well-maintained property, each cottage has a fire pit. There is a large swimming pool, a play ground area as well as places to play soccer, basketball, tennis, whatever you may wish. Matt was very friendly. The cottage was clean albeit it was dark in there - could use brighter lightbulbs. The only reason I don't give this a 5 star rating (no fault of the owners) is I-80 and PA-611 are nearby and I don't like road noise. The property is situated centrally to visit the different areas of the Pocono Mountains. There is no A/C but each bedroom had at least one fan. (Due to Covid, you must bring your bedding, towels, etc.)
Matt the owner and his partner were incredibly welcoming, helpful and had the property in amazing shape. The cabin (Woodcrest cottage) was just refurbished and looked great. It had everything we needed. There were so many activities and amenities for the kids to enjoy on the property. We'll definitely be coming back and will probably make it a regular vacation spot. Thanks for the great week, Matt!
Just got back today from Country Cottages (Forester). Had an amazing time. The grounds were well kept, the cottage was clean and comfortable with plenty of amenities. Came here with the wife and my two boys as well as another family of three. Kids had a great time in the creek in the back. Personal touch of a complimentary bundle of firewood upon arrival was spot on and deserves mention and kudos. Great perk! Plenty of utensils, pots, pans, glassware, flatware etc. The patio was sweet as well, with its accompanying rocker bench. Rocker bench and coffee makes for a SWEET early morning routine. Matt, the owner/manager, was always available and very accommodating. This was our first visit. But certainly not the last. Looking forward to visiting again. Matt, see you in 2021! --Jason M.…
My family and I stayed at one of the cottages and it was great. The cottages are cozy and clean. We had a stream at the back where my daughter played in the water. You also have access to a pool which was not crowded at all. All the cottages have fire pits and bbq grills. We used both. We didnt have firewood but you can call the office and Matt was great in delivering the fire wood. We made s'mores and relaxed around the fire pit.
My husband, dog and I enjoyed a peaceful fun weekend. We've never been to this area before. Our dog is old and has some health issues so we wanted to take him on a trip away from the city. We were able to spend uninterrupted time with him. We took our dog to Pocono State Park and the views were heavenly. We were able to get some shopping in at the Premium Outlets (we enjoyed that). There is plenty to do in the area and we will definitely be back again. The Cottage was nice, warm and cozy. Home away from home and the fireplace was awesome. Everything that we expected and more. Matt the manager/owner was pleasant, helpful and kind. He made us feel very welcomed!!! Thank you Matt and we'll see you again God willing.
We have been staying at Countryside Cottages for years now. It's our family's spot where everyone can meet up and hang out. There is a pool, tennis court, and nature all around. We absolutely love the fact that we can bring our dogs up!
We've been spending a week with the extended family here for several years, and intend to continue for as long as possible. The hosts are pleasant and accommodating, the facilities are comfortable and homey, and the whole atmosphere is family friendly. They do the little extras (homemade train rides for the kids) that keep us coming back. Worth every nickel.
My family and i have been going to Countryside for the past 22 years. My kids, wife and I love it. We have brought several guests with us over the years and 2 of those families now rent a cottage as well. If your looking for the Plaza, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a central location that enables you to take advantage of the many tourist attractions in the Poconos than this is THE place for you. My friends and I travel to numerous golf courses in the area and we play everyday. Most of these courses are within a 1/2 hour ride. Camel beach Water Park (Camelback Ski during the winter) is 15 minutes away. Great Wolf is as well. There is a Crossroads Outlet with over 100 stores and numerous antiques stores in the area. The cottages, themselves are large with cable TV and they are very clean. The evenings are cool and the days are sunny It has a lovely pool, with a diving board as well as well as a tennis court, a volleyball court and a basketball court. Each cottage has a bar-b-que and a large porch. My kids told us they preferred our Pennsylvania home rather than go to Disney. The grounds are attractive and offer a perfect scenario for an evening stroll. My son has caught a few fish in the creek at the end of the property. But the most important quality you find at Countryside are the people. The owners and staff are wonderful. Many of the other guests have become lifetime friends over the years. One of those fellow guests has become like a grandfather to my kids. I highly recommend the Countryside Cottages for families looking for a trip to the Poconos that offers a great deal of outdoor fun.…
Been coming here for over 10 years. Never a disappointment. Clean and cozy. Family friendly. Near everything and very affordable. Can't say enough about this place. Been a family tradition that we hope continues for years to come. Owners are friendly and take very good care of the cabins and the grounds.
If you have kids in your trip, you won't find a place better than this. Lot of amenities for kids. Multiple playground for kids of all ages, play houses, two play grounds with all possible toys of all sizes (I am not kidding). The owner is very helpful and very nice person. The cottage is quite good too.
