About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hop through the front door of the White Rabbit Cottage and find yourself in a cozy bright space decorated in an eclectic style. There is room to scamper with a 1.5 acre wooded lot located on a quiet country cul de sac in the Southern Poconos. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1200 square foot cottage has all the amenities of home. It is within 15 minutes of historic Jim Thorpe, Beltzville Lake, Blue Mountain Ski Resort and Penn's Peak Concert Venue. It accommodates hikers, kayakers, ski bunnies, loungers, bird watchers, cyclists, those who fish, white water rafters, and concert goers.

This free standing cottage will sleep up to six people, who can nestle in the ensuite master bedroom with a queen sized bed or two other bedrooms. One room has a full sized bed and the other has two singles that share a common bathroom. The living room has vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, and two sliding glass doors that lead to a large deck looking out on a wooded lot.

Guests are invited to nibble on their own meals cooked in the fully equipped kitchen. The cottage is also outfitted with a flat screen tv, cable, CD/DVD player and wifi. There is a long driveway, which will easily accommodate a boat, snowmobiles or other outdoor toys.

All sheets, towels, and cooking/dinnerware are included. A two night minimum stay is required, and the cottage is non-smoking. Renters must be at least 25 years of age. Families are welcome.

About Charlie Sproule

We have a romantic history with Jim Thorpe. Family of ours owned hotels and a bottling company during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As sometimes happens, the accountant ran away with all the money, so we just get to look at our lost inheritance and think about what might have been.

Jim Thorpe was the first place we vacationed together as a couple and was the site of our wedding ceremony on a gorgeous May day. It's a place where our family toiled in the mines and in the sewing factory and raised their kids. It’s where every street had a bar and a church and people you dated had to live within walking distance.

Now, Jim Thorpe is about artists, adventure and the art of dining, all of which we believe in and support. We can mountain bike, hike or antique and then dine on American cuisine or attend the strawberry festival at a local church. We like it all.

Why Charlie Sproule chose Pennsylvania

Life in the big city is a noisy adventure, and we craved a bit of solace. It was the mountains that always beckoned, not the shore. Within an hour's drive, we are happily parked in front of our home, feeling miles away from the bustling life we left behind. We enjoy the secluded feel to the place, while knowing that we are just a few minutes away from grocery stores, dining, drive-in movies, hiking, and dozens of other activities.

What makes this cottage unique

Star-gazing while sitting on our back porch, after a meal made of ingredients supplied by local farm stands cannot be beat.

Driving 10 minutes to Beltzville Lake and having to choose between a dozen or so amazing hikes is a delight.

Running down country roads past horse farms and seeing the woods in their fall glory is beyond words.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would be happy to write a review. We were very impressed with the decor in the cottage. We felt at home with the artwork on the walls and the the kitchen amenities. It was nice not to sacrifice quality appliances just because we wanted to get away for the weekend. The technology inside the cottage was perfect. This usually isn't even a category I would talk about because it normally doesn't exist in vacation homes. The directions [to use the technology] were clear and great for a rainy weekend. The wifi was also a must to keep in touch with the kids. Thank you so much.

Convenient and Easy

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at the cottage many times in different seasons and it is always great. It is warm and cozy in the winter and was pleasant and cool this August. Unfortunately, a bit of rain meant I didn't really get to use the back deck, which is lovely and looks out on the woods. The kitchen is well-equipped and there are always a few staples available in the fridge--a real boon when only there for a few days, but wanting to cook. The bathrooms are small, but functional. This is a nice place to stay with family. The owners are easy to work with and are very responsive.

Great cottage...simple and homey!

  • 5 of 5

Charlie and Margaret have a lovely cottage close to Jim Thorpe and other area attractions yet far enough removed that you have a serene setting to come "home" to. Will definitely return!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house!! I was a little stressed at first because I was booking last minute and the response time was not fast. However, I found out they own a restaurant and they were in busy season. After that I did get all the info. It was an amazing wknd and the cottage was perfect! As you notice they basically have all five stars and it stands true.

Great home in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a quick weekend in July, it was a great trip! Nice home with plenty of space and amenities. Did wish it had air conditioning, but with the ceiling fans and some cool night air it wasn't too bad. Thanks for the great stay!

Charming, Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We only had a 2 night stay but the home was perfect for our needs. We were able to relax, fix our own meals and enjoy a comfortable stay during our weekend sporting event. We enjoyed sitting on the deck with serene forest view and beautiful weather. Even though the home did not have A/C (and outside temps were close to 90), the house was comfortable with the ceiling fans on and windows open as it is nestled in the shade of many trees. Charlie (the owner) was great - he sent detailed information about the area, where to find markets and restaurants, and even came to our aid immediately when we realized we locked ourselves out of the house. We would stay again if we return to the area.
