Recent Poconos reviews

  • Thank you for a great stay!

    "Great house with wonderful surroudnings. We really enjoyed having BBQ in the woods. The house is in proximity to many attractions (e.g. water parks, rafting, etc.) We will definitely stay again next time we visit the Poconos"

  • My stay at the Poconos

    "My family and I enjoyed this property very much. It was quite comfortable and homey. The kitchen was fully equipped with the essentials to dine in if need be. The beds were comfortable and the furniture decent. I would stay here again."

  • Very Enjoyable House

    "Perfect size house. Well maintained and furnished nicely. The layout was great, and the game room in the basement was a lot of fun for the kids (and us parents). The fireplace warms the whole house and it was cozy and comfortable. Community ski hill with skiing, tubing, and ice skated is located less than a 1/2 mile from the house. NOT the owners fault that we couldn't use it because it was unseasonably warm temperatures during our stay, so I couldn't possibly take away a star for the fact that we didn't get to enjoy that. But now that it's cold out and they made snow, if you have kids and want to do snow activities but not deal with the huge, expensive resorts, I would highly recommend this house. As I mentioned, we weren't able to use it, so we went horseback riding instead --- less than a 10 minute drive from the house, and the kids had a good time. So there is plenty of stuff to do, winter or summer. And if you just want to lounge around and not do much of anything at all (which we also did) the house is a great atmosphere to just relax. Lastly, the owner, Jeff, is a very nice guy. Considerate, attentive, and very easy to work with. We will probably rent the house again in the summer."

  • Absolutely Amazing

    "Hello, I just recently stayed at this Lake Front Property this past weekend and I couldn't have had a better time. The house was flawless and the pictures does no justice to how the house was when I arrived. Had a lot of amenities and was super close to different attractions. I will deffinatly recommend this property to anyone! The perfect getaway location!"

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.
