  • A great week!

    "We had a very comfortable and entertaining week in the house. We were there during a super cold week, so we didn't go out much. It's a great set up for simultaneously cooking and hanging out with guests. Our 10 yr old boys loved it and had a great time sitting in front of the fireplace, hanging out in the game room and the loft area. The place was quite clean. And we really appreciated being able to bring our dog! We also greatly appreciate the owner's flexibility with our departure time. Always a quick response in communications!"

  • Great family getaway

    "The property and location were great. We traveled with two families and had a blast!! Kids and adults alike. The house was clean and plenty of room for the nine of us. The location enabled us to go back and forth from the mountain quickly and easily. The kids enjoyed going back after dinner to board and tube while the adults relaxed by the fire!! Would definitely go back."

  • Wolfe Family

    "Our family just enjoyed a very pleasant winter weekend stay at this cozy home. The house fit a family of 5 very comfortably. Our 3 children loved the SunRoom. They'd watch movies, play games, do crafts and even camped out (slept) in the evenings in the SunRoom. As a family, we went snow shoeing behind the house and the kids played in the snow and built snowmen. The house is very clean. Two new flat screen tv's. The wood burning stove was awesome! There was ice skating available at the lake. We went snow tubing and also enjoyed the indoor pool. All of these activities you can enjoy by renting here. We look forward to coming back to this home in the summer to try different type of activities. It was a very nice, relaxing and comfortable long weekend. Thank you!"

  • Comfortable & Close

    "I stayed here with a group of adults. The home was comfortable and close to the slopes; it's within walking distance, there is a walking trail right off the middle of Jack Frost's Ridge Run trail. The neighborhood was quiet and relaxing. The home was clean and decorated for the season. The loft area allowed for more sleeping options. The homeowners care is evident, she makes extra effort to make sure you are well informed with helpful tips about the area, as well as little notes throughout the house, making it easy to work the remotes, lights, TV, DVD etc. Although this was an adult getaway, this place would very well suit a family with children too."

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.
