  • Wonderful Time at a beautiful setting.

    "This is a beautiful home in a classic mountain house setting. I rented this home for New Year's Eve with some other couples and we all enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The house was in great shape and there was plenty of room for everyone, the two kitchens were great for extra cooking and cold food storage."

  • Pocono Mountain Rental

    "Our recent stay in early January was very pleasant at Snow Ridge village. Our unit was clean and very charming. We had a very short stay which the owners were graciously accommodating. Wish we could have taken advantage of the unit more, all we did was sleep there. Fireplace looked cozy and inviting, but we did not use it. We did manage to cook a great breakfast with the electric griddle we brought ourselves. Unit had everything you needed to eat and clean up afterword. Thanks again for the great stay."

  • Excellent Weekend Get-Away !!!

    "My family and I truly enjoyed a beautiful fall weekend in the Poconos. This is the perfect house for any family looking to have a great getaway in the mountains. Beautiful location and scenery, home cozy and comfortable with all the amenities, superbly well-kept and clean. We were able to enjoy beautiful days and crisp cool evenings... and even a few snowflakes on Sunday morning. A huge plus that we were able to bring our two little dogs with us who were exhausted but exhilarated with our long walks and seeing deer and wild turkey. Michael was there to greet us and show us around the house. This is our second time renting this home and we definitely look forward to coming back again - it just keeps getting better !!!"

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.
