About the property

Lakefront- Lake is at full capacity, Game Room,, tennis, jacuzzi

Lake is a short walk through the backyard. Lake is full as of February 9, 2017.

We rent to prom parties on a case by case basis.

Tranquil and gorgeous views from all the bedrooms, the living room and one kitchen.

There are 4 bedrooms with privacy doors and closets [3 on the 2nd floor, 1 in basement] and the other beds are in open areas. There are closets in open areas also.

Max. of 5 single beds in common spaces can be selected thru the airbnb pictures of bed types. However, I have 8 single beds including two pull out trundles. There are two single air mattresses and one floor mattress that could be made available. But please ask first

There are 4.5 bathrooms (two with whirlpool tubs), One available kitchen with standard major appliances. The second kitchen in the basement can be used for an additional cleaning charge of $20, and is not as modern and nice as the first kitchen.

The use of the standalone upright freezer in the main kitchen, second refrigerator, second dishwasher in the basement etc. will be dependent upon us explicitly talking about this after you book. The house has hardwood floors. No wall to wall carpeting. But some area rugs.

Two decks [one is about 600 sq. ft], large Gas BBQ grill with one additional gas cylinder included with no extra charge.


The House Sleeps 24, specifically:

Second Floor:

Master bedroom - 1 King [sleeps 2] &

1 trundle bed with two twin mattress [sleeps 2]

In open common area in the basement with no privacy doors

1 Twin bed [sleeps 1]

2 twin trundle beds with pull out trundles underneath [sleeps 4]. Please note that the trundle mattresses are little shorter in width from the normal twin size and therefore more appropriate for slim people and or youth.

So that you can enjoy the nature views, there are no curtains or window treatments on the wood side windows [e.g., in family room, master bedroom, basement window etc.]. Privacy is not an issue in these wooded areas because there are no houses on that side. Bring an eye cover if you want to sleep in the dark.

Cable TV, music system, hi speed internet access.

For large groups, with advance notice, we can also do catering.

The garage, and about 15% of basement space will not be accessible by short term guests. There is an exercise bike. A desktop with wifi access is available in the master bedroom in , as is, without tech support.

I have a contract with a local snow removal company to clean the front stoops, landscape stairs and three car parking space on the side of the street in front of the house [EXCLUDING the large and steep driveway]. Depending on the severity of the snow and the company's priority, SNOW CLEANING MAY BE DELAYED. Thus, I have no control over the timing of the cleaning and inconvenience if any should be excused. This situation happened once in my three years of renting. Please note that during snow days we park our cars on the street and use the landscaped staircase [as shown in photos] to go up and down. FOR THEIR SAFETY GUESTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRIVE DOWN THE STEEP DRIVEWAY DURING SNOW. Please watch the forecast and park your car on the street if there is snow in the forecast.

Streets are cleared promptly by the association at least in the part I live in. There is no such thing as "snow route" from my home to the exit gate. During snow days if more cars need to be parked guests have the option to clean suitable spaces for cars beyond three OR park the car in the clubhouse approximately one mile away from my home.

Please inform Security personnel if you park your car in the clubhouse. Please don't park the car beyond the white line on the street even if it is not visible.

(1) Guest will NOT have access to the garage and some places/ closet in the basement.

(2) Unless an essential equipment [such as dishwasher or the refrigerator] in the first floor kitchen is unusable guests are NOT allowed to use the second kitchen in the basement and/or any equipment therein. My property manager must promptly be informed of any such situation and get approval from her before using the second kitchen in the basement open area.

(3) Guest will have access to Two decks [one 600 sq.ft], a gas BBQ grill, with an additional gas cylinder at NO EXTRA CHARGE, an exercise bike, a regulation size ping pong table, a 12 in 1 multi game table, a metal fire pit to [make smores] with metal seatings around it, several plastic outdoor chairs, & two portable folding table [available on request] for outdoor dining.

(4) Swimming pools and whirlpools are available at the clubouse when a life guard is present.

(5) There is an in-home library containing our collection of books on wide variety of subjects. Guests are welcome to read them with a little TLC and return at the proper place. If you can't finish a book please do come back and finish it during your next visit.

(6) I will provide 6 FREE amenity passes with which guests can have free access to all amenities of the association except the ski lift.

Additional passes can be purchased. Please ask for details before booking.

(10) Saw Creek’s on-site dining facilities can be enjoyed at the Top of the World Restaurant.

(11) Outside of Saw Creek, guests will find nearby horseback riding, golf, local resorts, outdoor markets, and even a casino just a short drive away in the magnificent Pocono Mountains. Skiers are thrilled to discover that they are just miles from the Shawnee and Camelback slopes.

Fantastic House And Property Manager

  • 5 of 5

I was referred to Sukhendu through a family friend in the Indian community. The house was even better than advertised. The property manager left it immaculately cleaned and was very responsive during the check-in and check-out process. The view of the lake was amazing. Highly recommend this house to all!

Go over everything in detail with manager upon arriving and leaving.

  • 2 of 5

Rented this place for a weekend. Informed manager that toilet was leaking in basement bedroom on sunday morning and turned off the water to toilet. Did not receive my security deposit because owner said we had clogged toilet. Repair bill said pump not working since toilet float was hung up and was not vented properly. Owner said we had flushed a diaper down the toilet which is insulting and rediculous.

Owner's Response: The tenant is lying. 1. Never informed the property manager of any leaking toilet. 2. The tenant flushed diapers and other things down the toilet. This caused the grinder pump to overflow 3. They had the opportunity to go over everything with the property manager in detail and said everything was ok 4. They also opened the fireplace and turned off the pilot, which cost me time and money 5. Threatened to leave a bad review if security deposit wasn't returned, which could be deemed as security deposit extortion 6.The spelling of ridiculous is wrong on the review which shows that the tenant makes errors 7. Charged him a discounted rate, the security deposit withheld was $200 while my expenses were $400+ 8. Would absolutely recommend not renting to this tenant. 9. Kept assuring in all communications that everything was fine with the property, so this was a surprise 10. Appealing to homeaway to remove this false review and recommend other owners should not rent to this tenant

Rent This House ASAP!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends rented this house for a long weekend. This was our second year in a row renting this house and wouldn't want to rent any other house. The house was in great shape when we got there and the owner/property manager were an absolute pleasure to work with. There are enough beds for everyone to sleep comfortably, ping pong table for fun, and fire pit with enough seating for everyone. Do yourself a favor and rent this house for your next getaway!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I had a reunion at this location for the weekend. There was ample space for sleeping and hanging out. The house was very clean when we arrived and the property manager was lovely to deal with. The game room was a favorite of ours and the fire pit was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend staying here for a family or friend reunion!

Lovely property for entertaining

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend at this beautiful property. Elegantly furnished and immaculately maintained, with plenty of space for our guests as well as us. The owners were also kind enough to provide passes for access to community facilities. We hope to return later in the season for skiing.

Great Lake View and Game room

There were a group of 20 of us driving in from Manhattan. The property manager was nice to deal with. She cleaned the place well. The views from the backyard, especially the lake was spectacular. We also enjoyed the game room!
