Frank (Bud) was very accessible at all times, he answered all my questions promptly. The house was definitely accurate as described. It's fully equipped with all kitchen utensils, we literally cooked all weekend. Lots of board games to play with. The best part was sleeping in the couch, with the fire place on and cable TV. The guitar hero and playstation upstairs in the game room worked perfectly for the two guys that didn't want to watch the movie us girls were watching. Lastly, the location is super convenient. Camelback and the outlet both were about 20 minutes ride from the house.
The house was perfect for a weekend of skiing and paintball. The property has a great fireplace which we used to stay warm in the single digits! It's perfectly located, close to a bunch of different attractions and in a lovely wooded neighborhood.
Instructions for operating everything were very clear, and Bud responded very quickly to texts and e-mails. Great property and host!
This was a very welcoming home and very close to the ski resorts. My friends and I enjoyed the stay because it made us feel very much at home away from home.
Very lovely home in a woody quiet neighborhood. We took a walk to the nearby lake, which was frozen over. The home is warm, well equipped, and very clean. It was a great place to stay for a weekend away with a group of friends from out of the area.
Bud was extremely responsive during the entire process and made it real easy for me to be comfortable as a first time airbnb user. This mountain chalet escape was everything I had expected/hoped it would be and some! I have three young children and they loved going to the private community beach and pool. In addition to my family of 5, my sister and my nephew also joined us for a long weekend getaway and all 7 of us felt quite comfortable and at home. Bud had plenty of movies, video games, beach toys, bikes and board games for the kids to enjoy in the evening hours. I cannot wait to book my next escape getaway at Bud's Chalet and would recommend it to anyone!
Bud has definitely gone above and beyond to ensure his home is well-equipped for an easy, lovely getaway. The house's vibe is the perfect blend of beautiful and cozy and has all the comforts of your own home and then some, from the large collection of DVDs and video games to the Wi-Fi, down to the iPod dock. I found myself being continually pleasantly surprised at the thoughtfulness of the place. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals, including cookware, cutlery, and serveware, and the grill and dishwasher were very nice touches.
The neighborhood is very sweet, a private community of beautiful mountain homes. Everything you could need is located just a 5-10 min drive away.
Bud was very attentive and quick to respond in all our communications, and I can't think of a single thing I'd change about the home or the entire experience.
I hope to be lucky enough to come back next summer!
My family and I reserved this place for a brief getaway. Overall we were impressed with the condition of the home, decor, and amenities. We did not have a single issue during our stay. During the reservation process Bud was very responsive and answered all of my questions to the best of his abilities. We look forward to spending another family vacation in this home.
About the Host, Frank (Bud)
I'm a hard-working professional, who enjoys spending time away in the mountains of the Poconos. I wanted it to be on a regular basis, so I bought this chalet, to escape when the need arises.
I say life is too fast most of the time, so slow down a bit and enjoy the moments...
