We stayed here from Sept 13 - 15 for a quick weekend getaway. My friends and I looked to do some activities around the Pocono Mountain area, but we didn't want to stay at a hotel. That;s when I found the Howard Red Cabin, quietly nestled away in a private community not too far most of the major attractions, including the Tanger Outlets and Camelback.
Since this was the first time I booked a vacation rental, I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms, living areas, and kitchen were well-kept and clean. The beds were comfortable, and there was enough to keep us entertained when we were dog tired from doing our thing. Netflix, anyone?
Perhaps my most favorite thing about the cabin was the vast amount of things to do when you're there, done with your day. The cabin has a plethora of televisions, two of which have access to Internet video services, such as Netflix and Hulu. A pool table and Foosball table were also available for anyone willing to place a wager on the line. Our nights were almost as fun as our days.
What I'd like to to see improve is the upkeep of the outside equipment. While it wasn't a big deal, we wanted to make use of the fire pit. We were unsure about using it because we saw that rust had eaten away the bottom and we didn't want to end up breaking it.
Overall, I highly recommend this vacation rental. Our contact was prompt and courteous and answered all of my questions with a timely response. If you're looking for a cozy hideaway as a launching pad for Pocono Mountain activities, this would be the place to park your spaceship.

At first I was a bit skeptical about the whole house rental idea, but I must say I am so happy I threw my doubts out the window. I along with 8 of my friends stayed here November 1 - 3 and it was beyond amazing. First to start with the owner, although I have never personally met her, she kept in constant contact with me throughout the booking process until we left the house. She answered all my little questions and she was nothing but kind and polite. Now for the house, the gated community was great and by following all instructions we had no problem getting pass the gate. The house itself was truly amazing, everything listed in the description and more. There are surprises but only good ones, pictures do not really show how gorgeous inside is,down stairs without a doubt is my favorite, ulimate entertainment area,we absolutely LOVED it !!!
Ps.we got to have breakfast with deers, which was amazing haha. Would definitely go back here
