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).

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!

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

The house itself was lovely. We were able to have 11 women comfortably fit and we enjoyed every inch of the house. The porch was our favorite place, they have adorable rockers and swings. We also loved the hot tub (although it was very heavily chlorinated) and the DEER! We had 10 deer at once in the backyard and we loved to watch them mingle. The beds were comfortable and the house was well stoked! Remember to bring linens and paper towels and regular towels (a little inconvenient to have to bring your own bedding but it was worth it). There was a great restaurant down the block and we were able to find a cab to bring our large party.

We would 100% book this home again and hope to in the future! It was heartbreaking to leave.

My one suggestion is to leave the address for the garbage center because the map they provide is very difficult to read. But we found it! (Remember to bring your trash pass cause we forgot!)

Thank you so much! Loved LOVED loved your home.

great house and location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our needs. Owners responsive to our questions. Lots of personality in tbe house as well as personal touches, deer food, extra toothbrushes etc. Lots of games and entertainment in the house. Even had a fire in tbe fireplace two nights. I would recommend that hot tub supplies be available or have the option of it being serviced mid week as our family used it a lot..

Wonderful extended family get away. Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect! Enjoyed sharing the yard with several deer. Love the porch swing. The variety of games and the game room were popular. The hot tub was a perfect end to each day. We went to the beach/pool several times. It is an easy bike ride or drive. I wanted to rent the boats - paddle or row boat ($10/hour) but we didn't get time for it this trip. Hopefully next time. General Dollar is a short drive and has milk and eggs. There is a meat market a little further that seemed to have all the basics. Mary was wonderful! She provided information to me in a timely manner, and explained everything clearly. I highly recommend coming for a quiet get-away!

Three Family's and still sane :)

  • 5 of 5

We had three families, not related, with 7 kids under the age of 7. The house setup was perfect for all three families to have their own space and allow for kids napping at random times. The back deck is a good size, we could fit a water table, small kiddie sprinkler setup and all six adults without feeling crammed! The common space was large enough for all of us to hang The natural gas grill meant no worries about the tank being almost empty. This was our second year and we'll be staying again next year!
