We have a wonderful trip! The house was clean and spacious. We would absolutely return again!
Great location and spacious
THE HOUSE WAS. IDEAL FOR A FAMILY GATHERING, CLOSE TO THE LODGE AND WELL EQUIPPED. THE VERY SMALL 1ST FLOOR BEDROOM SHOULD NOT HAVE A DOUBLE BED IN IT.
We had an excellent stay! The house has an amazing layout with large rooms and many beds and slept all of us comfortably. The house was extremely clean, everything worked great and in great condition. Since the house is so close to all of Skytop’s activities, it was super convenient to come back to the house after an activity to eat/nap/whatever. It is important to note that Skytop is a resort in the Pocono mountains, and this house fit that image, it was truly a perfect cabin in the woods. The owner Alex was super helpful and engaging, and we found no trouble checking in at all. We will no doubt come again. We have stayed at the lodge before, but I would highly recommend staying at this house because you can sleep your whole family no problem, and like I said, it has an amazing location to everything.
The house was large and accommodated our group of 10 comfortably For our late Aug 2020 stay, and was as advertised. Pluses: access To Skytop facilities which were wonderful: beach with large floating slides, indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts, golf, rock climbing; fairly priced restaurants, easy walk to hotel, Screened Porch was very pleasant with many little tables for eating meals, House is large, Kitchen is older but adequate for the minor cooking we did, fun place for bike rides and hiking around The lake. Minuses: house is old, minor mildew in Master shower, No bath soap (wish we knew), second screened door needed some care
We had a fabulous time. The cabin while old, had plenty of space for our group of 9. We didn’t have high expectations because it was a cabin, and not one of the Lodge’s rooms which are very nice but would require us eating at the lodge the entire time. We cooked all our meals with the exception of one fantastic dinner at the lodge. This cabin was located a short distance from the Lodge. We walked all the time. We participated in many of the Lodge’s activities. We hiked many of the trails. We also played golf and tennis and even tried lawn bowling. Due to Covid, the lodge had small crowds. The Butterfly house is a fun activity for the kids. It was a perfect getaway. If you are used to luxury, the cabin will disappoint you. 6 days without TV can be appreciated. There are 2 TVs but only dvd movies can be viewed. The cabin did have WiFi so we were able to stay in touch with news events or social media. I do advise bringing air freshener because some of the rooms were musty smelling. I had an odor absorber and it worked well. Overall - A Memorable time
While this property is well-worn, it was clean and has a great floor plan to accommodate a large group of people. Also, it's proximity (an easy 2-minute walk) to Skytop Lodge makes it an ideal place to enjoy Skytop Lodge's excellent facilities.
Beautiful fall weekend with family and friends. Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the house and Skytop activities.
