  • Perfect weekend getaway

    "The house made our weekend worth it! We had a marvelous time staying here. As we were travelling with kids so having a game room was certainly a plus. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean. We enjoyed mountain climbing and biking in the nearby areas. We have decided to make this house as our yearly holiday home."

  • Stayed here nine days

    "Rented this home for my first anniversary. Property is big and the deer were a beautiful sight to see. It has 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, one bathroom located in the master bedroom with a stand up shower. Master bedroom bed was a bit hard. The other bathroom has a bathtub. The three bedrooms are located next to one another. This house is a small three bedroom home. The bedrooms being next to one another was good for us in a way because we have children and having them close was easier. The wood burning stove did not work while we were there. There are sliding doors that lead to a deck with a bbq and hot tub. I didn't get to use the bbq due to the weather, however the hot tub was the best. House was a ten min drive to fast food restaurant's all take out, which was a bummer. Twenty mins from shop rite. House was fully stocked with pots, pans, and utensils. Washer and dryer there made things convenient. Rugs are stained in living room. Couch was comfortable. There are four tvs located in this house. A few board games and tennis rackets. Like I stated above, the house is a small three bedroom and would fit the needs of a family with 4 children or girls get away. House is beautiful overall."

  • AMAZING HOUSE AND OWNERS!!

    "My family and I did a rental for July 4th weekend and the owners were helpful, VERY nice and accommodating. The house is large, clean, modern, but yet rustic and really comfortable. The deck is amazing and large with a new grill, fire pit and heater. Was perfect for two 3 year olds. We will rent this house again!!!"

  • Great place to getaway!

    "My husband and I and our 2 daughters 5 and 6 y/o and our black lab had a fantastic weekend at this chalet. The location is PERFECT. The boat ramp being right there and a dock was more than convenient. The size was of the chalet was just right for us. Inside was clean and the girls loved that there were games in there for them! We spend a lot of our time outside by the fire and cooking on the charcoal grill. Very very good experience and definitely would love to be back next year. We met Larry and he was very friendly and helpful and answered any questions we had. It was so nice to be able to bring our dog with us, he is part of the family after all and he loved the lake!"

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.
