  • Wonderful home to stay in for any vacation!

    "We stayed at this beautiful home for a gorgeous wedding that my niece had at the Lords Valley Country Club right inside the Hemlock Farms development. It exceeded all our expectations and allowed us to gather with family in the surrounding area, that we haven't seen for over 8 years. It has all the comforts of home, many toys to keep little ones happy and a large great room where you can cook a meal and enjoy visiting at the same time. The owners were wonderful to work with and we highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a Home Away from their own. Thanks again, Judy and Daniel"

  • Cozy, clean, and close to everything!

    "As I first walked into this home, I was immediately happy and impressed with the cleanliness, organization, space, decor and overall atmosphere of it. My family and I had plenty of room and everything is at your disposal. Lin leaves instructions on how to work things in her home from the televisions to the amazing air conditioner in the living room that cools the entire house! We had pool passes to the Big Bolder Lake which was only 15 minutes away. The lake and heated pool was amazing and the views are breath taking! Overall, my experience with this home and location was wonderful! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone and I'm extremely particular when it comes to renting homes....trust me! You will not be disappointed :-) Janice Kaisinger, Philadelphia, PA"

  • Labor Day Weekend Getaway!

    "Our group of 10 adults booked this house for a Labor Day Weekend Getaway. We had an awesome time. Susan's house is beautiful, clean, and well stocked. The kitchen and the dining room is on the smaller size, but it was well equipped with all utensils, cooking, cleaning equipment and anything else you can think of. We spent a lot of time in the family room in the basement, where there is a pool table that can be converted to a ping pong table, and a tv with plenty of movies to choose from. Unfortunately, we did not get to check out the lake near the house, but this rental includes 10 member passes. We went biking at Jim Thorpe (30 mins drive) and rafting (15 mins away). We had brunch at Terra Cotta Café, which is 5 mins away and was very impressed that we went back for lunch on our last day. High recommend! Looking forward to returning!"

  • A Little Bit of Heaven.....

    "We're still basking in the afterglow of one of the best family vacations we've ever had. This beautifully appointed, spacious home on the largest cove in Lake Wallenpaupack is truly a little bit of Heaven. The first class, rustic interior can accommodate a large group of all ages. The master bedroom, with a king sized bed and spacious bath, which includes a jacuzzi tub and a stand-alone tiled shower, is fit for a king and queen. Three other bedrooms, one of which is on the kitchen and patio level and suitable for parents-in-law, and full baths within short steps, provide plenty of privacy. A third floor loft, with two sets of bunk beds, a ping-pong and pool table, board and video games, is a perfect setting for kids indoors where they can make all the noise they want without annoying the adults. A large picture window in the dining area provides a panoramic view of the lake. Add the patio, fire-pit area below, and the lake-front dock and swimming area suitable for young children, and this vacation home is perfect for making family memories. We'll be back next year; can't wait."

Poconos Travel Tips

The Pocono Mountains are located in quiet and scenic northeastern Pennsylvania. When you visit, you’ll hardly believe that it’s less than a 2-hour drive from bustling New York City. Here are some of the highlights for your stay in the Poconos:

Best Things to Do

The Poconos are great for people who love to be active in all seasons.

The most obvious choice is to take advantage of this snowy winter locale for excellent skiing and snowboarding with over 185 slopes and trails at places like Blue Mountain, Camelback, Big Bear, Big Boulder, Shawnee and Jack Frost. You can also go snow tubing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and even learn how to mush a team of Siberian Huskies with Arctic Paws Dog Sled Tours! Adventure Center at Skytop Lodge hosts many of these activities, as well as luge and toboggan runs for something new.

For summer fun, The Poconos abound with outdoor activities. The mountainous area boasts 150 lakes. Check out Lake Wallenpaupack for canoeing, kayaking, sailing lessons, jetskiing, a leisurely boat tour and much more. If you’re up for something more adventurous, go whitewater rafting or tubing on the mildly rough Delaware or Lehigh Rivers.

For hiking, head to Bushkill Falls - the Niagara of Pennsylvania - to see eight brilliant cascading waterfalls from trails marked by level of difficulty. The Yellow Trail, a moderate hike, is an excellent 45-minute walk that passes several of the falls. Kids will enjoy the paddle boats, miniature golf and gemstone mining.

For alternate means of transportation, rent bikes and spend a day in nature at the Lehigh Gorge State Park in White Haven or the Gouldsboro State Park in tiny Tobyhanna, or go horseback riding at scenic Sugar Mountain Stable in Bushkill.

Historic Sites and Sights

There’s plenty of fascinating history in The Poconos.

Take a tour of the Asa Packer Mansion in Jim Thorpe. This Victorian home was built in 1861 for railroad magnate and philanthropist Asa Packer. The tours are interesting and the inside is stunning - 95 percent of the furnishings are original. The Grey Towers in Milford is another historic home that architecture buffs will enjoy.

Visit Eckley Miners’ Village in Weatherly - a well-maintained ghost town and museum that offers a look into the lives of anthracite and coal miners of the past.

Take a ghost tour of the Old Jail Museum in Jim Thorpe if you like a good scare. The jail has a sordid Civil War-era past. Learn the tale of the handprint that just won’t go away!

See the Jim Thorpe Memorial - a commemoration and marking of the gravesite of one of the greatest athletes and Olympians the U.S. has ever seen.

Festivals

If you’re in the area at the end of July or the beginning of August, don’t miss the two-week Buck Hill Skytop Music Festival. There are shows during the day and a live show almost every night in Buck Hills, Canadensis, East Stroudsburg or Skytop. There’s everything from opera to broadway favorites.

For a more quirky option for the foodie in you, head to the annual Pocono Garlic Festival in Shawnee every Labor Day weekend to sample garlicky foods, listen to music and visit over 50 unique vendors.

Take part in history at the Wayne County Fair, which has happened for over 150 consecutive years in Honesdale! It’s a major event, featuring harness horse racing, truck pulls, live country music, fair food and rides and games - a treat for the entire family.
