About Bud and Kay Macnew
I was born in Tokyo Japan. I met my husband when I was studying in Germany at the same university.
Bud and Kay Macnew purchased this Chalet in 1994
Why Bud and Kay Macnew chose East Stroudsburg
My husband used to come here for golfing since he was attending Fordham University in NY. Our favor vacation place has been always Poconos. Finally we decided to build one instead of renting. That how we got this beautiful comfortable house here in Shawnee.
What makes this Chalet unique
Most of guests enjoyed that we have 2 living rooms( one we call a family room or den), as their children could watch own TV shows although each bed room has a TV or playing games etc.. while the adults enjoyed chatting with family or friends or watch their own show. Also, they liked the idea of having 2 bed rooms and a full bath on the 1st floor as some times they had older people who do not like stairs. Also the guests like to have a TV in each room. Wd have total of 7 TVs in the house. This is amenity filled vacation community, such as indoor , out door pool. ski slope is a few minutes walk ( 33% off on your lift tickets for our guests ) 27 holes golf course (55% off on your green fee for our guests).the pools are free of use, as same as tennis court, basket ball court, horse shoes.valley ball court etc. our guests also enjoy, canoeing, rafting at Delaware River( also discounts available) Near to grocery stores, restaurants,movies and Casinos etc..

My friends & I have been renting houses for 15 years for quilt retreats. This was our first time at Kay & Bud’s. As other’s have mentioned, the house is a bit outdated, however it was a good fit for us! Number of beds & sewing area is ghe most important to us. We loved the open concept of living room, dining room & kitchen. 9 of us were able to sew, eat and chat in one area. Everyone had a bed and having bedrooms on the first floor was key for some of us. Kay & Bud answered all of our questions and checked in with us. Overall it was a great weekend!! Thank you Kay & Bud.
Thanks for staying . We are glad that you enjoyed your weekend. You left the house in good condition.
We love to have you back !
Have a wonderful summer.

Janice and friends. Thank you for staying at our vacation house. you were well behaved guests, nice to have you !
Have a wonderful summer and come back again !!
Great! Big! Home.
This is our family’s 9th year here. The home is perfect for family get togethers, really any large group. It’s spacious, open floor plan makes everything comfortable yet cozy. The beautiful fireplace warms the whole atmosphere. So close to Shawnee ski mountain that you could walk there. The owner responded within minutes to the one question I had. Kitchen has everything you will need along with new appliances. Plenty of parking, even two garage bays. Saw deer every day. Churches, any kind of shopping, dining, tourism and entertainment is close by. Minisink Hotel still our favorite but recently found Pub 447 has great steaks and seafood.
Tom and family
Welcome back again and again for 9 times.
You have been such wonderful guests.
Well mannered and clean.
If something goes wrong in the house , you fix it before repairman is called.
We have a lots of good memory about you.
God bless you and your family !
Looking forward to hearing from you !

Great house great location great owners
This is an ideal house for anyone with a large family. 2 rooms to watch tv. Big dining area for board games and cards. House is clean and always kept up. Master shower needs some new hardware for shower. Tv in main living room needs to be about 40 inches bigger tough to watch a football game or hockey Olympic game on that size tv and distance. But those are the little things. Skiing right across street all stores 2-4 miles away can’t beat this place. Owners are there for you all the time.
Thanks again for coming back. So many years. We appreciate it.
The shower room will be fixed by the time you come back.
Have a wonderful 2019 !!

Great place for a group. Lived-in but nice, good layout and great value for a group to hang out.
Bob and Kay checked in a few times to make sure everything was OK. They seem like very nice folks.
We had a group of 14, 5 family units, and were comfortable. The main living area is an open space, with a couple large tables, roomy kitchen, and living area where we could all spread. The wood burning fireplace was cozy. There is another small reading/tv room on the other side of the house if anyone wanted to get away. The kitchen was fine, plenty of utensils, dishes, etc. The house is not pristine, it has had a nice life and shows a little age, but is taken care of and comfortable. Light sleepers might not want the large first floor bedroom, but the rest of the house was quiet, especially upstairs.
The nieghborhood is nice, quiet, we had a couple good walks around. The ski resort is a long walk or short drive,good for first-timers. The pool is about 10 minutes away at a resort, but worth the drive. Easy access,clean, with a large hot tub. In the surrounding area there are plenty of outdoor hiking opportunities. There are ample shopping options in the area for stocking up.
In town, there is the Deer Head Inn - a random special find, live jazz, a dear (no pun intended) spot to hang out, but only open half the week.
We really enjoyed our stay. Not luxurious but we didn't want for anything. A great place to hang out with extended family.
Your exact needs for a quick get away
The house was exactly what I was looking for a girls get away weekend...very spacious for all 16 of us..the only complaint a few of the girls had was that the beds were uncomfortable..but a few others said the beds were just right..I guess it depends on which Goldie Locke you ask..I definitely will be reaching out to owners again for next years retreat
Other Activities: Downhill/Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, Tubing, Wildlife Viewing, Basketball Court, Miniature golf, shopping, and kayaking
