Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Come relax at the Acorn Cottage nestled in the Pocono Mountains. The cottage is a modified A-frame with the comforts of home and the charm of the outdoors. With two state parks nearby, the cabin sleeps six and is close to many area attractions. This is a top region for white water rafting with dam releases weekly for great rapids. You can take advantage of all the outdoors has to offer: fish local waterways, white water raft, tube, kayak, bike, hike or take in a round of golf. You can also visit the quaint town of Jim Thorpe, ride the scenic train, shop at a variety of outlets or spend the evening at one of two casinos. Camelback and Pocono Downs is also within a short driving distance. If this doesn't sound like fun, you can warm yourself by the campfire roasting marshmallows, take a quiet walk in the woods and view the many deer or enjoy a game in the upstairs loft.

The gated community has a playground, lake for non-motorized boats and a pool that is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, we no longer provide the following in order to help keeps costs down due to loss: You must provide your own linens, blankets, pillows, tea towels and towels. Please note the bed sizes in the description.

The house was fine, but no bedding or towels

  • 3 of 5

We arrived later in the evening. It's nice that you can do this because the keys are in a lockbox, so no need to coordinate with the owner, but were surprised to see that there are no towels or bedding provided with the stay. I realized later this was stated in the information within the app, but as someone who does not read all of these details before arrival, I felt this should have been made more clear before booking. Especially when the photos clearly show blankets and pillows on the bed, which is misleading if not provided.

Otherwise, the house itself is really cute, with a nice upstairs and lots of porches. The furniture and decor do not do it justice, but for the price it is not bad. It also did have most every utensil etc you could want in the kitchen.

Awesome cabin and wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy that we found this gem! We had a great time feeding the deer and seeing the goblers and hens walking about the place. I think we bought out the local store of apples to feed our four legged friends. So many fawns and I had an 8 pointer come walking right up to the deck. Also had a hummingbird come within a foot of my face! My son and his wife fished and we hiked, played Yahtzee and Trivial Pursuit! The cabin was very clean and had EVERYTHING we needed. I loved that Carolyn has a crock pot in the kitchen. It made dinners easier when I could set it and forget it. We used the grill too and had delicious fish on the grill! Carolyn was so accomodating with all my questions. We will definately be back! If I owned this, I would be there all the time that I could! Thank you again Mr & Mrs Daneker, for sharing your little piece of heaven!

Adorable cabin that is close to everything. The owners were quick to respond and very helpful answering my extra questions about the area. We also loved being able to take the dog. We are already thinking about our trip for next year. Overall I would highly recommend this property.
