Overview

About the property

One bedroom -- but can sleep up to five or six

We guarantee... Big Al's Creek House is like NOTHING else in the Poconos!

The Creek House is a retro-rustic getaway with luxury lodge touches and plush amenities (including wi-fi and satellite TV) – all in an ultra-private creekside setting. This peaceful, fully equipped house features design with a mountain cabin feel that takes you back to a simpler time. Plus, you’re close to all the MANY attractions the area has to offer. In fall and winter, enjoy the sounds of a warm, crackling fire and the creek rushing outside your window, and toast friends and family in style, comfort and serenity. In spring and summer, fish from your wooden bridge, have dinner on the back rock patio and sit in the cedar hot tub. It's creekside and under the stars! (Cedar Hot Tub NOT OPERATIONAL during Late Fall/Winter season -- 10/1 to approximately 4/1)

Call us to hear just how beautiful and affordable your escape can be ... book now, limited space for select weekends.

Note: There is a 1200 (twelve hundred) square foot unoccupied studio on the property in close proximity to the creek house. There is also a cedar hot tub with steps down to the creek and seasonal operation usually from about Spring to October!

Very picturesque, lovely clear stream and pond.

  • 5 of 5

Big Al's was a joy! There are so many wonderful surprises. The stones along the streambank are continued throughout the patios and steps, it is very natural, and artful at the same time. There are lots of spots to sit and enjoy the water - a hammock and a swing, as well as two benches built into the bridge over the stream.

We loved the pond. My husband caught quite a few bass(no lunkers)and a few sunnies. It was awesome to sit out there at night watching the stars, and listening to the frogs.

The house itself was very clean. The bed was comfy. All paper goods were provided. You could tell that a lot of thought went into the decor. It was rustic, comfortable and decorated with paint -by-number wildlife art. It all works together wonderfully. The part I liked the most is the creek room. Along one wall are five windows which open out to the sounds and views of the creek. Along the other wall is a raised bench/bed to watch the water.

There's a hot tub with good power, a Webber grill - which may need to be updated soon. It seems like the place is very well kept and updated often.

We highly recommend a visit!!

Awesome place to spend time away from it all

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the summer time. Our two dogs loved the walk to the pond. The creek house was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely come for another visit!

As advertised, quaint romantic getaway. Exceptionally clean and very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

Big Al's Creekhouse is a perfect romantic getaway. The southing sounds from the creek and the quietness allows you to forget the day to day hustle. Don't forget to walk to the pond! The hot tub is perfectly rustic. The home itself is perfectly appointed and decorated. Our only suggestion would bring your own pillows, and the addition of an outdoor shower would be awesome. Thanks for allowing us to opportunity to stay at your home. We greatly appreciate it. J&C

These include: Camelback Ski Mountain, Camelback Play Park, Shawnee resort/Playhouse, The Crossings Outlet Center, Mt. Airy Casino, Great Wolf Lodge, Pocono’s NASCAR Raceway, Memory town, Tobyhanna State Park, and Pocono’s Brewing Company. A short drive will take you to either Lake Wallenpaupak for motorboat rentals, water skiing, tubing, Jet Ski rentals, sailing, and fishing or to Jack Frost/Big Boulder for skiing and Jim Thorpe for the areas best white water rafting or the quaint historical village for antiquing!
