  • Perfect for a quiet stay

    "We have just returned from a wonderful long weekend at this well appointed cabin. It was so quiet and peaceful, probably because we went early enough in the season. It is beautifully decorated throughout, has such a friendly welcoming feel to it. We used the log burning stove one evening as it was a bit chilly on the first night, that is marvellous and keeps everything so cosy. Then we did heaps of fishing, relaxing, eating and drinking with friends, and of course enjoying the lovely view across the lake. We were just a party of 4 but it can hold many more comfortably. It has great cooking facilities, boat, kayaks and canoe. Not too far to drive for anything you might have forgotten. We are not good with the hot weather and bugs, so will return in the cooler months knowing we shall have a super relaxing time. Would recommend to anyone!"

  • Great Home in an Amazing Location

    "From booking to the actual vacation, I cannot recommend this rental more! The booking itself and any questions I had prior to checking in was great. Madeline was always prompt and thorough in her response and provided ample information. We stayed in this home with 7 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room-we had a fun, relaxing and adventurous vacation and we are ready to book another one. The house is clean, well taken care of, and in a prime location. The kitchen is fully stocked with all items you could need to cook for your stay. I had no problem opening the cabinets and using anything in there with the level of cleanliness it was like being at home. There is ample seating for meals (in addition to the dining room table, there are extra stools). Each room had a TV with cable (your normal channels + Disney if you have kids you may find this important) and a DVD or VCR player. There are some games/movies for you to enjoy as well. The 2 ½ baths which have 1 bath tub and 1 with a shower stall- again very clean. The washer and dryer was one of the best amenities- you don’t have to pack as heavy and with utilizing the pool and winter activities, there’s a lot to pack of course. Having the ability to wash clothes was a huge perk travelling with kids! The fireplace was great- right outside the neighborhood there was a little place we found for firewood. 2 large bundles / $15.00 –it was a great deal. The view with the sliding glass doors was beautiful especially over coffee or a glass of wine. The neighborhood was also quiet and safe– all the people we encountered were respectful. You can walk right out the door and get to the mountain for skiing/snowboarding. For snow tubing, which we were mainly there for, it was a short drive – 3-5 minutes including parking (which there was no charge for). The indoor pool/gym/recreation area was great and we utilized this daily-it was a 1-2 minute drive (you can walk there as well). Outlet stores are not far- under 10 minutes away (less time depending on time of day). Barley Creek Restaurant of course was great as always- plus there are some delis at the bottom of the neighborhood as well along with ski shops. For 1st time renters of this home, we were unsure what to expect and I am happy to report our expectations were met and exceeded. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity- we’ll be booking again soon!"

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.
