Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved our stay at (email hidden) so much last year that we had to return again this year. So we did and it might have been even better the second time around! B.A. has the apartment and grounds stocked and ready for everything you can imagine, from relaxing on the hammock, to boogie boarding or fishing in the lake, star gazing on a lounge chair, to grilling or enjoying a bonfire. The ideal place to head for New Yorkers like my wife and I to shed the stress and worries of the daily grind and breath a little mountain air and decompress. Thanks B.A. ... Again! We look forward to making it an annual trip!

  • We had a great time at B.A's Pocono getaway. The place was very clean and well accommodated. We really enjoyed walking down to the lake and some of the restaurants in town. Definitely would recommend and we are planning to come back this summer!

  • B.A was great. The house was amazing and cozy. Even though it snowed we still had a blast. B.A plowed the driveway and the road mulitple times, so we were never stuck or snowed in. We will definitely be coming back in the summer!!!

  • I really enjoyed my stay at BA's place, the apartment is cozy and well appointed and BA (email hidden) - the perfect combination of welcoming yet still making sure that you can relax and enjoy your stay. This is a great location if you want to experience and explore the lake wallenpaupack area, which I recommend if you haven't been. I saw a great sunset by the lake and it looks like it would be perfect for windsurfing or sailing in the summer. Elk Mountain is an hour away with long runs and uncrowded lifts. There's also a washer and dryer available if you need to wash/dry your clothes after a day on the lake or on the mountain.

  • Our stay at 'Camp Serenity' was (website hidden) greeted us warmly when we arrived and had everything set up for anything that we could need. The apartment was in top shape, very clean, and very comfortable to relax in. The family of deer that lives in the woods close-by was an added bonus for us city-folk that don't get to see wildlife often. Our dog loved his time there as well, indulging in some provided dog treats and especially liked the dog toys that were available. It was a hassle-free and very enjoyable getaway for all three of (website hidden) was a top notch host!

  • My boyfriend and I visited B.A.'s apartment for a fall weekend getaway and we loved it. It's located near a beautiful lake with a hiking trail and it was super convenient and nice that we could bring our dog. B.A. even left dog treats and a bottle of Pellegrino for us to enjoy - so nice! The apartment was really cozy and well kept. It felt like we had the whole place to ourselves, which is exactly what we wanted. We would love to visit again. Thank you B.A.!

    Response from B.A.:

    Katie was wonderful having you. Come back next summer! All you need to bring is a swim suit :-)

    November 2013
  • BA was an amazing host! Provided us with great instructions as soon as we got there and then it was all seamless after that.
    From deers greeting us in the morning, cozying up on the outdoor couch under a bright moonlight, naps on the hammock and the dogs being able to roam around as well as that awesome bonfire! BA had everything setup perfectly. It was one of the best getaways we've had in a long time and so close to home. Everything was within distance and accessible. We will definitely find our way back there again. We had a wonderful and relaxing time at Camp Serenity! Thank you BA for everything see you again soon!

  • This is truly a getaway! B.A. was great - from being flexible with our arrival time, to giving us recommendations, to accommodating our dog. The place is walking distance to the lake and close to several small mountain towns with cute coffee shops, diners, and restaurants. We went for a fall getaway so the fact that it's more (email hidden) was actually perfect - there wasn't a ton to do and we didn't want to do much of anything except relax. B.A. understands that's what most city-dwellers are looking for and the place is perfect for just such an escape. We look forward to coming back soon! Thanks B.A.!

    Response from B.A.:
