    "We had a wonderful time. Lisa and Mel were responsive, courteous, and lovely. The property itself is beautiful and sleeps 12 more than comfortably. We hope to back one day!"

  • A PERFECT Thanksgiving Retreat!

    "My husband and I hosted our family for the Thanksgiving weekend. The house was perfect! Spacious, comfortably furnished, with more than enough amenities to entertain 14 people. The kids and grandparents loved playing games together in the basement. The kitchen was spacious and more than adequately equipped for making and serving a feast. Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep, including my brother's large family who shared the back bedroom. The house had games, cable, and books to keep everyone occupied during down time. The kids also got to spend a day in the indoor waterpark just minutes from the house. Also, I cannot thank the owners enough for quick and courteous responses via email. When I hit a snag with planning less than a week before we were set to arrive, they were lightning quick to accommodate. Everything about the rental was smooth and hassle-free. Even the neighbors were nice enough to help us shovel the driveway during a sudden and unexpected 12" snowfall! Hands down, this was the BEST Thanksgiving our family has ever had."

  • Family time in the Poconos

    "This home was perfect for our vacation in the Poconos. We use this weekend as “family” time that is not available to us, and most families during the Christmas Holidays. We are a multigenerational family age 67 to 5. There were enough bedrooms and living space for individual quite and enough gathering space to celebrate together. Everything went smoothly with the rental. There were no surprises and the deposit was returned promptly. We are already planning for next year. Thanks."

  • Fantastic getaway

    "I was looking for a relaxing getaway from the hustle of everyday life in the city, and this house was just what the doctor ordered. The house was clean and quiet. I think I spent more time relaxing on the deck than anything else, though it was nice to get back out on the tennis court! Andrew was very responsive to any questions I had, and I'd highly recommend this house to anyone looking to escape the daily grind for a bit."

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.
