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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We reside in southeastern PA and use our cabin as a family get away. This is a family treasure that we want to share. When we decided to rent the cabin out we wanted to provide others with a get away that isn't going to break their bank and to help cover our costs.

Why the Owner Chose White Haven, PA, USA:
We purchased this property in 2005 and put a lot of heart into it. It has been completely gutted and renovated. Please be respectful of the property and the surrounding nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are close to many attractions and are an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Come visit to reconnect with nature and to get a much needed rest.
