I have been to Poconos three times and this was by far the best stay. The cottage was excellent and absolutely clean. It had everything you would need for a group stay. Moreover, John was extremely accommodative on most of our bespoke requests. I would highly recommend this property to everyone. @John: Thank you so much for such a great hospitality !! Next time we are in Poconos, we will look for no other place but yours.

Jose, we're happy that you were pleased with your stay. We want to deliver an experience that keeps guests returning. Clean, comfortable and cozy yet with plenty of room and gathering spaces. The location of being close to what the Poconos has to offer, yet in a quiet wooded area makes this location perfect for relaxing after a day's activities. You are most welcome to return. John and Millie

A wonderful get away with my family and my best friend's family. We have rented this warm cozy home before, and we will rent again. Ample room for family members to enjoy both the upstairs and downstairs living rooms with gas fireplaces. We didn't venture out, but thoroughly enjoyed our extended weekend in this home. The owners are lovely and available to help whatever the situation.

This house was so quaint, coozey, and welcoming. The owner is very intent on being available when you need him. Everything was provided, even a small pack of pancake mix which we enjoyed for breakfast. The house accommodated all my guests with our own rooms. No one was bothered by early morning people or the late night ones. Definitely plan on booking with this rental again. The perfect little home in the middle of the woods, where no one bothered us. But super convienant to a near grocery, and a spirte and beer store.
