About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Welcome to the Tree House. Our home was designed and custom built in 2002 and has a large, wrap-around porch, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, and a large fireplace that is the focal point of the living space. The Timber Frame Construction with Red and White Oak interior walls gives the home both a rustic and cozy feeling, while still having the convenience of modern comforts and amenities. The home is decorated with antique farming tools and warm room colors throughout, giving it the feel of a true mountain get-away. If you want a cozy mountain feeling, this is the home for your vacation.

Our home is very close to all most major Poconos attractions!! 10 minutes to Jack Frost/Big Boulder, and 20 minutes to Camelback ski resort and water park. Also very close to several state parks, indoor water parks, white water rafting, shopping, and restaurants.

There are also many amenities located within the Towamensing Trails community including a private lake (with beach), swimming pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, playground, and more. Eight community passes are included with your rental (additional passes can not be purchased to keep down crowds in the common amenity areas).

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a long weekend with a group of 9 women in The Tree House. The house was very clean & beautifully decorated. The kitchen was fully stocked & the set up made meals easy to prepare & serve. The bedrooms and baths were all very modern & comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. It was a lovely, relaxing place to visit.

The perfect cozy cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Mary's home. The pictures don't do it justice! It's the perfect cozy cabin tucked away in the Poconos.

We stayed there in early January and it was still decorated for Christmas which really was quite charming. Mary provided everything you could need – cookware, dinnerware, games, blankets, firewood, deer food, and more. On Mary’s suggestions we went to Big Boulder mountain where some of us went skiing and others went tubing, only a 10 minute drive away. There are also other mountains close by, Jack Frost and Camelback. The closest grocery store is about 5 mins away.

Check in/check out was a pretty easy process and Mary was always very responsive if I had questions. I would definitely stay here again, it was truly the best weekend!

We as a group of friends rented the treehouse and couldn’t be more happy!! The Treehouse is spacious, clean and homey! The ammenities are way above par; from firewood to burn, food to feed the deers and all the games you could need. If you are looking for a fabulous place to stay.... look no further. Triple stars.. thumbs up and two high fives!!

Had a wonderful stay at the tree house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the tree house. In what was one of the coldest few days of the year, we were really worried that it would be freezing inside. We couldn’t have been more wrong - the house was warm and cozy from the top floors to the basement.

The interior was absolutely stunning. Very well thought out and executed. The Christmas decorations were still up at the time (per our request) and added an extra charming touch throughout. Everyone loved it.

We’ve rented properties before but we've never encountered a more accommodating and responsive host. Mary was quick to answer all of my questions and accommodate the requests of our party.

We definitely plan to return in the summer months and will be highly recommending it to our friends.

Comfortable weekend in the mountains with plenty to do!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for the lovely stay at your home! Our group of three families (each with two children ranging from 3 to 9 years old) had a wonderful time in very attractive and comfortable surroundings.

Mary provided clear and simple instructions on how to access the property on arrival. Instructions on how to ready the home for occupancy (e.g. turning on the well), accessing wi-fi, etc. were equally as clear.

The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable even allowing us to have air mattresses for the littlest ones to sleep in parents' rooms. The kitchen was well appointed with plenty of stoneware, glasses, silverware, etc. and all normally seen small appliances. The living areas were equally well appointed with comfy couches, cozy blankets, and ample pillows. There were many entertainment options from the availability of books and magazines, TV with a wide array of channels (college and pro football!), and a closet well stocked with fun games. The deck area was spacious and had comfortable chairs, rockers, and porch swings. The hot tub allowed parents to relax a bit after the kids went to bed, too! The beach area and playground at the lake allowed us to get outside with the kids for touch football and other activities.

The home is also within close proximity to many areas of outdoor interest such as Hawk Falls (beautiful, about seven minutes away, and home to at least one bear), Jim Thorpe (festivals, old jail, steam train), and ski resort areas.

Over the course of our weekend, everyone commented about how they'd love to return, how great it would be to spend a holiday like Thanksgiving, and how great it would be to spend time there in the snow!

Thanks again for such excellent hospitality!
