Property description

We have been promoted as "the best kept secret in the Poconos."

Nestled in the picturesque Pocono Mountains on a private 400 acre estate, our rustic and charming cabins overlook a beautiful brook with trails to the Lehigh River Gorge offering you tranquil scenery and sounds. Come and enjoy the best of nature amongst cozy amenities and great outdoor adventure.

Our two rustic cabins available, complimentary to landscape are named "The Ferns" and "Brookside". Not only are our cabins nestled privately on the 400 acre estate, but is next to 40,000 acres of state game land. Get away from the pressures of everyday life as you disappear into ultimate relaxation at The Brookside Lodges. Your romantic getaway or adventurous retreat awaits you.

Our luxurious rustic cabins offer 3BR, 1.5 baths, with spacious open ceilings and covered private porches on both levels. Decorated with unique and rare root furniture, imported from the Philippines, numerous fireplaces, and fully equipped kitchens. Master suite contains a king sized bed; other bedroom has a queen, and there is also a bunk bed featuring a full bottom and twin top in a private room with bathroom. Each cabin is stocked with board games for fun family evenings. You will feel warm and welcomed, the moment you step through our door.

We offer biking on our many miles of trails, hiking down to the waterfalls or the Lehigh River, and tubing and are minutes from whitewater rafting as well. You can fish in our ponds; swim in our pool or just relax in breathtaking silence. For the more adventurous we have added a zip line, rope swing, and a giant slip and slide to our spring fed pond located across from the cabins. There is also a row boat, kayak, floating tubes and rafts if you just want to relax little and float around. Also, have fun mountain biking, ATV riding and snowmobiling on our 8 mile private trails. Endless activities are available no matter what the season. Located only a very short drive from major ski resorts, as well as the outlets at The Crossings in Tannersville.

The owner lives on property and is excited to help make your stay as comfortable and exciting as possible. If you want a tour of the estate and hiking trails on ATV, we are here to help. We also provide bikes and fishing equipment. And don't forget to enjoy a private game room within walking distance that includes pool, ping pong, foosball, shuffle board and air hockey.

Unwind as you retreat and enjoy the harmonies of nature while you create your adventure at The Brookside Lodges.

We are excited to announce the availability of the rustic Tom Sawyer Cabin right on the old swimming hole. It is a small cabin great for a parent and their child. Your youngster will never forget being right on the water, fishing off the covered porch, and playing in the stream out your from door. A great bonding getaway for all ages. $500 for two nights any day of the week.

For information on our 3500ft private airstrip Deer Meadows Airstrip, 8PA3 can be obtained by visiting the airnav website, and a helicopter pad down by the cabins.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Born in Phila, and moved to Bucks county Pa. Spent many years working as a remodeling contrator and then later retired from a river recreational business called 'River Country' famous for river tubing. This business was in operation for 37 years. Sold River Country, retired and purchased the 400 acre country estate I currently live on.

Why Weatherly, PA, USA:
I call it my 'heavens waiting place'...I always dreamed of flying and now I have my own airstrip and hangars for my 'toys'. The previous property I lived on was in the flood planes and had flooded 3 times. Now we are at 1200 ft elevation, so there isn't much chance of flooding here. Our new property, located along a river, has a stream that runs through it and has 3 ponds. Most importantly it is secluded and protected by approximately 40,000 acres of state game lands.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Watching a Colombian coffee commercial featuring Juan Valdez, it showed a rustic cabin, and every man dreams of a mountain cabin. Myself being a contractor, I decided that if I ever had the opportunity I would accept the challenge of building one, just like the one on tv. A writer from NY commented that he just had to get out of the city and clear his mind, spiritually and mentally, and we found that that is exactly what all our guests go away with.
