Charming & Peaceful Pocono House
My family and our friends travel to the Poconos often and we were pleasantly surprised by this house!! The photos were very alluring online and this property did not disappoint. Having the open field space with the river nearby was wonderful for our young boys to play, fish and swim. The lovely horse was magical for all of us to have on the property. The boys fell in love with him immediately. There was lots of space for two families and the bathroom was very large so having only one was no big deal at all. It was so nice to have fresh towels and linens provided! The kitchen had everything we needed and we had a great 4 day weekend!! Jen was easy to reach and was very accommodating. We hope to stay at this property again in the near future.
The land and the buildings, our main cabin and the two smaller ones, are the perfect family retreat. Though you can still hear the road from time to time you will enjoy quiet and solitude, there is no one adjacent to the property. The horse is your only companion, maybe an egret, or a bear. It is truly a get-away, with so much near by to go to. We had the best host ever, I have rented a lot of homes, she was so gracious. The whole place was a wonder. The specifics of the interior are well documented but the feeling is even better, lovely things, good beds, great towels. Having one bathroom in the main cabin was well compensated for as the other cabins had full baths and even kitchens. You will love this place!
Quiet and relaxing
The house was amazing. Better then I imagined. Beautifully decorated. Everytime I walked into a room I found something new to look at. The place has everything you could need for your stay.
The house is far enough away from everything for the quiet relaxation you are looking for, yet close enough to stores and restaurants for anything you might need. (Highly recommend Woody's Country House for dinner, a short 10-15 minute drive)
Jen, the owner, was quick to respond to my phone calls. She responded within 5 to 10 minutes. Very pleasant to speak with.
Would certainly consider returning again for a start. Maybe longer next time.
Wonderful, relaxing stay at this unique secluded cabin
We had a wonderful time staying at Jen’s cabin. From the booking process right through the stay Jen was really helpful and responsive. The cabin itself is gorgeous, inside and out and the photos are really accurate. My husband had a great time fishing on the river and me and my dog relaxed on the swing bench, grilled outside and we really loved having the horse there. We also saw some turtles and lots of frogs!
The house had everything you needed to make you feel at home. The kitchen was really well stocked with utensils and high- end appliances which made cooking easy and comfortable. There’s a grocery store just a few miles away and some good diners and restaurants and Jen was kind enough to recommend her favorite. The bed was really comfy and the shower...wow, it was so awesome. It really felt like you were connected to nature inside and out which is what us New Yorkers need a few times a year! We can’t wait to come and stay again soon!
quiet weekend getaway
This cabin was a visual treat...all the natural elements brought into the construction was very appealing and it was uniquely decorated...the pictures are true to what you'll find. Access to the second floor is up a hand crafted spiral staircase...very unusual! The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Supplies in there and in the bathroom were appreciated.
We had perfect clear temperate weather (50's at night, 70's in day) so we did not need either heat or ac. [Verizon] cell coverage was spotty (fluctuating between 2 bars and no bars) and wireless was also a bit sporadic but that's cabin living.
Set in a clearing with woods nearby, it was relaxing for the kids to run around while the adults could sit or join in and there was much attention paid by the children to the resident horse, such a sweet and gentle beast.
The river is not visible from the house but just a short walk over the rise. It was running high and fast after recent rains so we did not get to enjoy it how we would have liked and ticks were prevalent along the riverside path especially. We went to the Thomas Darling Nature Preserve which is close by...a nice ramble set mostly in the woods with some of it on wood-board walkways, but again, previous rain had created some very boggy areas to trudge through.
One note on pricing: though the cabin is said to sleep 8, pricing is based on 4 people ("additional guest fee" is $25/night/per person, anything past 4) so that was surprising to us according to past rentals experience.
More then we hoped for. You talk about privacy this is the place. Beautiful home! Beautiful property! East access to river. We will be back!
