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.

Comfortable & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time visiting because I loved my stay the first time around. The house has everything you may need for a comfortable stay. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, perfect for a getaway away from the city. Can't wait to return to this cottage.

Perfect girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun at the cabin on a little girls weekend trip! We spent most of our stay hanging out in the cabin that being said we had everything we needed and we're very comfortable here during our stay. It was quiet and very relaxing with beautiful surroundings, we loved sitting on the deck and watching the deer come by and visit. We even talked about making it a yearly visit with each other! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Poconos area. Though we didn't leave the cabin much we did spend one day hiking in Jim Thorpe area to see the Glen Onoko falls which had amazing views would also recommend this to anyone looking to get out and see some stunning nature.
