Recent Poconos reviews

  • Cozy home and a beautiful location

    "This home was more than what we expected and Sandy is such a sweetheart. We arrived late Friday night and she kindly offered us to spend the entire Sunday instead of checking out at 3pm. She was very accommodating and made sure we saw everything we expected. Kitchen is fully equipped so all you need to bring is food to cook. This home faces the lake so you have the most beautiful view especially during Fall. We took out boats through our entire weekend to soak in the beauty of the season. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a peaceful getaway and just wants to relax."

  • Wonderful place to stay, even in the winter!

    "This is a wonderful home, and our group really enjoyed our stay. There are two fireplaces, large tables for meals and board games, and plenty of chairs/couches. My one tip is that there is a single bed hidden under the other single bed in the downstairs bedroom. We didn't find this until we were cleaning on our last day there. We'd love to try renting again in the summer so we could enjoy the lake as well!"

  • Amazing weekend

    "The housing is beautiful and spacious. It was very cozy. There were 18 of us but it did not feel claustrophobic at all because the bedrooms were in 3 different levels. House is kept very clean. Marsha was very helpful and answered all our questions. We enjoyed our stay very much. We will definitely be back. =)"

  • Good place to rest your head and eat!

    "As another reviewer said do not expect lavish and up scale. This rustic home is a great place for our group to play some cards, cook some meals, sleep and just relax. Great price for the weekend and you cannot beat the location to Split Rock Resort, the golf course and other attractions!"

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.
