    Great space!

    Reviewed by: susan p. on


    The house was beautiful, with enough space for all 14 of us. There was anample amount of linens and an abundance of towels. The pool is beautifulwith plenty of toys and floats for the kids and the adults. Shopping wasconvenient with 2 large supermarkets 20 minutes away, with a Dollar Treeright across the road from them both (which in my opinion is far betterthan the Dollar General that your GPS will direct you to.) I woulddefinitely recommend!!

    Immaculate and amazing property!

    Reviewed by: Joyce U. on


    Pictures do not do justice to the property. The house is huge, modern and spotless! We were five adults and four children 11-14. We did not even get to use all the space as it was that huge. Perfect for giving different groups of people their own space which would be handy on rainy days. There needs to be a better picture of the pool area as it was lovely with plenty of room. The on-site person greeted us right away and kept us informed but was otherwise out of sight. If you are there in the warm weather then do some research on things to do and the distance from the house. The Largest General Store was worth a visit. There was a small arcade and the kids (and adults)) enjoyed the duck pin bowling. We would have done the Escape room but it is only open on weekends. All in all it was a very positive experience.

    House was big enough for our big family. It was very clean, all the bathroom had enough towels and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. Our kids had great time at the heated pool,also the pool is great size n fence was great addition and safe for kids. All the bedrooms were good size and love that they had television in almost every rooms with free Netflix and they also provided us with a mini iPad. The basement was fun for our big kids. We had great family time on the deck and we are already planning to go back again next year.

    Great house for Large family

    Reviewed by: Kathleen W. on


    We had a great stay here. The large number of bedrooms and bathrooms and extra rooms worked out well for our extended family (grandparent, kids, and grandkids). Some of the highlights were the in-ground swimming pool and the amount of seating for meals (2 tables inside by the kitchen and 1 outside). We also enjoyed the drive-in movie theater and Beltsville State Park nearby.

    Great House for Families and Great Summer Rental

    Reviewed by: on


    We had three familes and a grandmother stay for a long weekend at the house this summer. It was a great place for 14 people including 7 kids. The pool was awesome, way better than the pictures show and the house was set up great, with a fun game room in the basement where the kids could hang out when not in the inground pool. The deck is nice and large and there is plenty of outdoor seating. The house was very clean and the bedrooms all set up nicely. The owner and caretakers are very accomodating and repsonsive before and during our stay. We loved the gaming systems with tons of games provided and fooseball and air hockey. The kids had plenty to do while the adults took advantage of all the comfy areas to hang out and relax on the main level and lower level. It was nicely decorated and the furniture was comfortable. Lots of channels on the tv including sports channels. The sonos music system was awesome. Added to our experience in a fun way. It was a pleasant suprrise to see all the small amenties like soap and toliet paper in all the bathrooms and dish soap for the dishwasher and plenty of trash bags and compliementry K cups for coffee. The walk in shower was very helpful as one of the people in our group has a disablity. There was an air mattress in the one bedroom a helpful addition. Its a nice quiet relaxing location, with enough shopping 10 minutes away in Palmerton that you can get everything you need for groceries and drinks and a pharmacy. Its also close to mountain biking trails and being there in the summer, the private enclosed well kept pool was a huge plus for our family and especially the kids in our group.

    Spacious house but dirty pool and smoke smell in the house along with mouse in the kitchen

    Reviewed by: Jaspreet M. on


    Big house with lots of space and well equipped game room for kids. Definitely large enough to accommodate a big family; however, the basement and rec room had strong cigarette smoke smell throughout. It was clear someone had been smoking right outside in the garage and on the deck; cigarette butts found full of ashtray. Pool had a dead frog along with loads of dead earthworms. We also found a mouse in the kitchen and tried to get traps from the management but were unsuccessful. In fact, the onsite property manager was hard to reach and didn't really return text messages or voice mail messages left for him. Did eventually get in touch with the owner the following morning. No Kleenex in the house at all. As for activities around the area, not much to do in walking distance. Had to drive around to get to Blue Mountain resort and further drive around to get to Beltzville Park.

    Manager's Response:
    Jaspreet, we're glad you found this 4,500 square-foot home spacious enough for your party of fourteen! We're sorry that you found some aspects of your stay unsatisfactory. As the property is located in a wooded area, it is common after the rain to experience some worms or frogs sneaking into the pool area. While we're sorry we can't prevent this issue, the caretakers do try their best to maintain the pool. They also provide a pool skimmer for guests to use in this scenario. Again, being in a heavily wooded area, it's not uncommon to spot mice. However, the owners have mouse traps in place and have a pest company treat the house for bugs and rodents once a quarter to help prevent their presence. The owners were just at the home and didn't detect a smoke odor inside the home. They have a strict no-smoking policy inside the home but do allow it outside on the premises. There are back up supplies, such as Kleenex, in the home but we're sorry if you were unable to locate them. We do note the location of this property on our listing so that guests know what to expect before booking. Blue Mountain, Beltzville, and Palmerton are all within a 15-minute drive away for guests to explore. The owners strive to provide exceptional guest experiences, and as evidenced by past reviews, we're confident this home will continue to host many satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team

    beautiful property

    Reviewed by: Erika M. on


    Ok so the property was beautiful and had plenty of space for our group. One thing that made me uncomfortable was all the doors with access to outside with the small children. The house was very clean and the pool was nice. I would recommend a safety net for the deeper side for families with children . I would definitely come come and recommend this house for future stay. The only issue i have is the house caretakers live on site l, while this is not my preference they were very nice and helpful. This information should be more specific in the listing. Overall this is a great property with a lot of space for extended family trips.

    This was our second year renting this house. It perfectly suited our needs as a group of 8. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean it was last year, and how many amenities it included (bed linens, toilet paper, hand soap, towels, paper towels, coffee pods...the list goes on). It makes traveling with such a large group (children included) super easy, so we decided to rent it again this year, and once again, were not disappointed. We are already looking into renting it again next year.

    More amazing than we had anticipated

    Reviewed by: A Verified Guest on


    Upon arriving and exploring this home, it seemed never ending... it is gigantic! The property is so beautiful and the home is immaculate. The property managers really do go the extra mile to make sure everything is wonderful during your stay. There was an iPad left charging on the kitchen counter when we got there- at first we were thinking "oh no, maybe the cleaning company forgot this?"... after reading the very detailed binder (including everything we'd need to know) we found the iPad was left to control a series of sonos speakers throughout the whole house- such a cool perk that we couldn't have imagined. The binder included everything from info on checkout to all the video games available for play (and their ratings) to nearby things to do- it was amazing to have it all in one place so we didn't have to scramble to figure out where the closest grocery, state store and beer distributors were. We used this property to lodge our bridal party and friends from out of town for our wedding. This home is great for socializing- the main kitchen, living, dining area is one thing, but in addition, there are 2 more living rooms in different areas of the home, both complete with wet bars. It was surreal. We will be staying again.

    ALSO- Linens are included! Great perk you dont often find.

    Reviewed by: Erin A. on


    The property was perfect for our gathering. The main living area was perfect for socializing. The 2 other rec areas in the basement were awesome for smaller groups wanting to play different games and such. We had Rock Band game set up in one rec area and Virtual Reality set up in the other. Nobody needed to scream and yell to be heard. I only had 2 issues with our stay and it's not about the home but the service we received. Our check in time was 4 pm. My husband and I arrived 1st at 4:20 pm or so. The cleaning staff were still cleaning when we arrived. Trash bags, dirty towels, cleaning products spread all over the house. They were still vacuuming, making beds, doing laundry...etc. The cleaning staff were still cleaning till after 5 almost 6 pm and by that time more and more people in our group started arriving. Also, I had asked them about towels and sheets. That, we would be having 15 people in the house for the weekend and we would need lots of towels and sheets for the sofa bed and for people sleeping on the couches. The cleaning lady reassured me that there were plenty of towels in the closet upstairs and there will be enough sheets. Then like I said they left way past our check in time and as they were leaving, they told us that they would be back in a couple hours to finish the laundry. And.... they never returned. Later that night, I realized that there were only 5 bath towels in the upstairs closet. So that night and next morning i finished the laundry. This was not what i was expecting but... it got done and we still had a great time.

    Manager's Response:
    Erin, we're glad you hear this home was an ideal fit for your gathering and your group had an enjoyable time overall. This property had guests leave the morning of your arrival, and since the caretakers prioritize cleanliness it did take them a bit longer than expected to get this spacious 4,000 sq ft house ready for your stay. This has not been an issue previously, and we apologize for this inconvenience. The homeowner has taken steps to prevent the scenario you encountered for future guests. Thank you for your insight and we hope to welcome you back for a 5-star experience that will exceed your expectations! Best, the Evolve Team

    Awesome home in The Poconos!!!

    Reviewed by: Rafael V. on


    Pictures don?t do justice to this home!!! Out of all the homes I?ve stayed in the Poconos, this has been the BEST property I?ve rented. It?s a huge place and plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Our group was composed of 3 families and 15 people total and barely used up all the space. Kids had a game room filled with games, adults had 3 living rooms to spread around in and there are 3 dinning tables inside and outside the house. The pool was awesome as well. Best thing that happened was having the pool in the property, kids kept in there all day and also has a 9-10feet side. Very well kept pool and pool/patio area. Kids got to experience a whole other side of nature on this trip. Whether on the road or at the property we were able to see ducks, deers, frogs, hummingbirds and a whole bunch of other animals. This property is located off from any major highway and the heavy commercial area of route 611 and I-80 which results in zero traffic coming in our out. Supermarket is about 10 mins away and between there and the dollar store you practically find everything you many need. This is an awesome property and definitely coming back next year.
