Kathleen Smith purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Kathleen Smith chose Tafton

It's warm and cozy in the winter and refreshingly cool in the summer and just up the street from the lake, we have an outdoor firepit and comfly seating everywhere. You can see the lake from the deck. It's a very relaxing getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

Fresh mountain air that somehow relaxes you almost instantly. Fresh water to swim in at the lake, great fishing.

The on line pictures definitely portrayed this cabin as being nicer than it was.

  • 2 of 5

The cabin had a very strong musty odor and had a lot of animal (cat? Dog?) hair throughout. My son has moderately severe asthma and had a tough time in this cabin. Additionally, the linens did not seem fresh and clean so we bought our own. We had to pay for a cleaning service and WiFi - amenities that should have been included in the rental fee. Lastly, the photos of the lake give the impression swimming is permitted off the dock. Not so!

Owner's Response: It's been an extremely wet summer and that causes a slight musty smell in summer that disipates once the windows are open. I always ask people to let me know how the cabin was left for them by the previous guests, I didn't hear anything negative from you when you checked in. You requested the cleaning service clean for you upon your departure at the time you booked and all of the paperwork clearly stated there was a $25 fee for WiFi. Lastly, you certainly can swim off of the dock. I'm not sure what you're referring to. It's a GREAT cabin offerred at a very reasonable price as evidenced by the 22 very positive reviews I've received prior to this.

tranquil Poconos cottage

  • 4 of 5

One of the ways that I base my evaluations on vacations is how soundly I sleep, and on this point this cottage receives high marks!

we visited in February which I assume is not prime season, so I can't speak for the degree of activity and bustle in spring, summer, or fall. But for the time we were there the only sounds were birds and rain. Heaven.

If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable and quiet place near a large lake that is relatively easy to get to from many places (in our case, NYC), then definitely consider this property. It is also conveniently located, within reasonable walking distance, to a country store that sells all the basic provisions plus many specialty items.

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy little cabin! Such an adorable little space that felt like home. We had a great time ice skating on the lake that was very close :) and checking out antique stores in town! Kathy was quick to respond and very helpful. Thank you for the great little place!

We recently had a last minute getaway stay at the cabin... being off season, it was extremlely peaceful.. exactly what we were looking for. Almost instant responses on booking, instructions, etc. Cabin was very well stocked, with pretty much everything you might need.
